This is my favorite eye makeup remover by far. It takes off even the toughest eye products (i.e benefit they're real mascara, stila stay all day liner). It is a dual-phase product, so you must shake it before applying to a cotton pad, and then sweep across the eye area. For those who do not like any "oil" type feel, you may not like how this feels around the eye area. It isn't oil, but it has a slippery feel when applied to the skin. It does not have much of a smell at all. Aside from the smell of the actual ingredients themselves. I am also a contact wearer with sensitive eyes and it is one of the few removers that does not burn or feel irritating. The one and only downside to this product is its price. Here in Canada it retails for $36 for a 125ml bottle. I personally use up that amount of eye makeup remover in about a month (always use waterproof eye products/brow products), so that definitely makes this quite pricey. However, I DO have to use less of this than other removers, as it does the job quicker. All in all, a really nice product. I removed one star for the very high price point.

This works so well and it is extremely gentle which is why I like it so much. I just put some on a cotton pad and then gently leave it on my eye for about 10 seconds and then it removes most of the eyeliner and mascara. With waterproof mascara I'll leave it on there for another couple of seconds and it will be able to wipe away with maybe some touchups here and there. Using this makeup remover i don't feel worried about using it too long on my eyes since it's so gentle and I don't have any irritation problems. I do definitely wash my face after using this since it is pretty greasy but also it unveils whatever leftover eye makeup is still on my face and ill go back in and clean it up a little more and rinse my eyes. Like i said it's really gentle so it works well with sensitive skin and to wipe your makeup off more than once without getting redness. This is my favorite eye makeup remover to use out of the garnier cleansing water and the lancome eye makeup remover.

I adore these cloths for days I'm not wearing anything but mascara and lip balm. I take them in my tote bag when I go to my sons baseball games and if I get sweaty or just feel I need a quick clean up from all the dirt, these are great, refreshing, and I feel sufficiently clean my face of any mid day debris. I also sometimes use them to remove the bulk of my makeup before I use my nightly cleansing brush routine. Or in the morning after I've woken but don't have time to do my typical cleansing brush routine. I've always felt they did a great job for what I've used them for, but as I don't use them as my main cleaning I find them a bit expensive for the quick wipe downs I do, and cheaper brands do just as good of a job. But I do enjoy how non drying these particular cloths are compared to the others on the other side of the coin. Never been disappointed, but not one of my must haves either though they're great.
