If you have never heard of this, you probably don't use the Merle Norman line. If you have, on the other hand, tried a sample (MN gives out mini's of this in stores when they have not run out) by now you are hooked like a mackerel; & where are the reviews for this fabulous product?? Despite its "older woman" rep, this is the best m/u remover I've ever tried- BAR NONE! Very Gentle is a gel formula that comes in a sanitary 2 oz plainish white & tan tube; not very glam looking, but I didn't buy it for its girlish looks ;). I use a dime size amount per eye & literally simply smear this all over my eye area for a few seconds (massaging in very lightly), concentrating on my eyebrows & lashes, where makeup is the most difficult to remove. This does not irritate my sensitive eyes at all, & I do not find a problem keeping it out of my tear duct. Next, I wipe away the now ghoulish black mess LOL with a simple baby wipe & follow with a cotton swab on my lashline/ tightlined areas. I don't use a waterproof mascara, so cannot attest to how well it removes that, but this wisks away any long-wear makeup I've ever used, with the exception of MAC's Liquidlast (which I no longer use & never found anything to effectively take it off with at first swipe).
I do not have a MN franchise store near me, so I order online & keep a new backup on hand- worth it to me. It's not inexpensive, but no more than a mid-priced dept. store line (and it works!) The best way I can describe how much I adore this remover is this: currently I am moving house & had accidentally buried this in a random box; I had a minor panic attack until I unearthed it again today! This is one product worth getting up off of the couch & hunting down in person, ladies ;D
