I try to minimize my use of makeup remover because to my mind, my cleanser routine ought to clean my face thoroughly - including of makeup. And usually, my makeup is minimal enough that this works. If I wear a waterproof mascara or a particularly tenacious eyeliner, however, I need something extra. This Bobbi Brown makeup remover is oil-based and gets off everything. You need to shake it up to emulsify, then I wet a cotton pad liberally with it, and swipe across malingering makeup. You don't have to scrub your skin to make it work. I have a complaint, though. It's quite uncomfortable on the eyes because of the oil content. If I use this, I need to basically jump in the shower right after because it makes my eyes sting, my lashes feel heavy and full of oil, and it seems to migrate everywhere. For that reason, I won't be re-buying it when I finish the bottle.

Bought this on sale. Guess you get what you pay for but this is the worst eye makeup remover I've ever used. Simply awful. Does not remove anything without rubbing. I'm heading back to Lancome.

The PP CanadaGirlToo basically wrote my exact review. Lol! I use her same technique, same cotton squares even. I just wanted to add that my very sensitive eyes were not at all irritated by is remover. I would highly recommend this, but will be unlikely to repurchase, as my Shu Uemura oil cleanser (Porefinist) does just as good/better job, and is for the entire face (one quick step for me), and doesn't require cotton squares.P.S. I am a Canadian Girl Too - haha!

I'm actually pleasantly surprised by how much I like this remover, as I've been underwhelmed by other bi-phase removers I've tried. It did a thorough job removing my eye makeup, without stinging my eyes even a little bit. I saturated a shiseido cotton pad, then held it over my eye makeup for about 20 seconds before wiping. I was able to use the other side of the pad to remove the makeup from my other eye. There was a slight oily residue, but I always was my face after removing my makeup, so this was a non-issue for me.

This is a 2-phase eye makeup remover, so the bottle must be shaken before putting the product onto a cotton pad. It is very similar to products offered by Neutrogena, Lance and especially Clinique's Take the Day Off in the purple bottle.In general, I am not really a fan of the oily residue that this type cleanser leaves, but on the plus side the silicones in these 2-phase removers ensure a rather easy removal of long-wear products without much tugging on the lids and around the sensitive, fragile eye area. I usually follow this remover with a regular 1-phase remover, for instance Clinique Gentle in the blue bottle, to get rid of the oily residue. While this Instant Long-Wear cleanser is effective I think it's also markedly overpriced, especially in comparison to Clinique's product, hence I am deducting two lippies. The Bobbi Brown remover comes in a 3.4oz bottle for $26 whereas the Clinique is $19 for 4.2oz.

I got a generous sample bottle of this from bobbi brown's website. I find it a little bit odd that it is called makeup remover but it is actually EYE makeup remover. Anyway, this has to be shaken because it has oil in it. It removes most of my eye makeup but not all of it. This isn't exactly a stellar result since I don't wear waterproof mascara or gel eyeliner. It is also pretty oily, which is a little scary for me since I wear contact lenses. I will definitely use the bottle up because it isn't terrible, but I won't be buying it. Bifacil by Lancôme is the best eye makeup remover of this type that I've used.

I got a deluxe sample of this from Nordstrom and tried it out to remove my eye makeup when my eyes were itchy, sore and irritated and I knew my other eye make up remover (simple) would sting and burn which I wanted to avoid. I was pleasantly surprised - it did not irritate my eyes at all, felt soothing and did an excellent job of removing all my eye make up - mascara, liner, eyeshadow, brow powder/pomade and primer- it all came off very easily, and my eyes felt much better after I took off the make up with this. It seems to be and oil and water mix type which I haven't used much before but I really liked it and might repurchase when I run out of this sample.

I hate this product. Sorry, but I do.It leaves my skin and the area around my eyes soo oily. And it does not do a perfect job in removing eye makeup, either.EDIT - I´ve started wearing long-wear eye make-up and have gone through several bottles of this. Ok, it leaves my eye area oily, but it just MELTS my hard-wearing eye gels / liners off! Hate the packaging though, it is so easy to drop it and break it.

I got a sample of this from Sephora and it's been a long-time repeat buy since then. The consistancy is like water, so you have to apply it real fast before it runs off of your hands. It's as gentle as water; simply non-irritating and super effective. I can feel the clumps of my waterproof mascara fall off of my lashes when applied. I never used a makeup remover before, but this improves the make-up removal process; it comes off much faster with it and leaves your skin soft and moist.

I didn't think this was a good makeup remover at all, especially considering the price. I normally stick to the drugstore when it comes to makeup remover. I got a deluxe sample of this from bobbibrown.com. I used this and then washed my face. Later I noticed I still had on quite a bit of eye makeup, especially under my eyes. Overall, I am not impressed.
