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. ...read more

This was the first Simple product I tried and it turned me into a believer of the entire brand. I like that they are small pads that are designed for the eyes so that they won't be contaminated by any other part of the face, not that that's a huge deal to most people. I'm just weird that way. The pads were moist through the entire pack, without being too saturated at the top or dry at the bottom as happens with other brands. Although their sticky adhesive doesn't stick as well as other brands so it doesn't always stay sealed and have the potential to dry out. That happened with several packs of the facial wipes, which has highly disappointing. Other than that, I like this product a lot. It does not burn or irritate my eyes and one pad will do the job for even the greatest eye make-up challenge. ...read more

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. ...read more

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. ...read more

I do not go without a pack of these in my house at all times! These wipes are the best make up remover I have EVER used!!!!! I wear alot of eye make up...alot and i only use 1 wipe to do both eyes completely clean with no residue. Even with my waterproof mascara I have no problems getting it off. I have sensitive eyes and eye skin and I do not have to scrub and scrub to get my make up off. I will not sleep in make up I can't even nap in make up when we are on the way home from somewhere thats quite a drive I am a strong believer that you should never sleep with contacts in or make up on and these wipes are the best make up remover I have EVER used in my life. You can use them anywhere without water every woman should have a pack of these on hand they even work great for little smudges or when you go thru your make up bag and get make up all over your hands!! Also your not left with your face feeling disgusting after using them like the oil remover (I can't stand oil removers they make my face feel so dirty and clogged) after using these wipes your face feels very soft and clean!!! These wipes are awesome!!! ♡♡♡♡ ...read more

Following the entire cleansing routine is really tiring after a long day out/night party. Before, I used to sleep off with my makeup on which led to a lot of breakouts. But following the cleansing routine late at night was a pain. Not anymore. Just some swipe with cotton pads and I'm done!

Micellar cleansing water by Garnier is my holy grail whenever I'm lazy to take off my makeup. I love this product so much! It's a all in one; removes makeup, cleanses and soothes your skin. Can be used on your eyes and lips as it's very gentle. I'm amazed how beautifully it takes off my eye makeup in 2-3 swipes. This really lives up to it's claims!

Pros
1. Hypoallergenic
2. No alcohol; no perfume
3. Paraben free (No preservatives)
4. Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.
5. No rinsing and No harsh rubbing.
6. Leaves your skin perfectly clean, hydrated and refreshed without over-drying.
7. Doesn't burn the eye area like other makeup removing products.
Cons
1.Nothing to me! Truly a wonderful product. A MUST HAVE in your skincare routine.

This is something now I can't live without. I definitely recommend you all to try out the Micellar Water! Absolutely worth the hype. And I'm someone who's always late trying products out. Indeed, a essential product when you travel!
Plus point, this product is very much affordable and available at any drugstore/hyper market. ...read more
