This is the best makeup remover product I have ever used. Aside from the packaging, which I kind of hate, this is an amazing product. Definitely worth the money!
I've tried multiple makeup remover wipes. Some left my skin feeling oily, some didn't do a very good job at removing the makeup, others were to hard on my skin. I have none of these problems with the Almay makeup remover pads. One pad, possibly two depending on how much eye makeup I'm wearing does the trick. The small size, which might seem like a waste is actually rather convenient. On those days when my mascara ends up in places it shouldn't or I get dark rings under my eyes from my makeup an almay pad allows me to clean up the mess without taking off what I want left in place. They don't burn my eyes. They don't leave my skin feeling greasy and dirty. So far everyone that I've recommended them to also loves them and continues to purchase them.

I love these makeup remover pads. I got them in a subscription box but I just bought the full size. I've read some of the other reviews and people either love or hate them. Yes, you do have to use more than one to remove stubborn or waterproof eye makeup, and they are small so if you don't like that then don't get these. I personally like them because they don't irritate my eyes. That is my # 1 reason. They work, although not as quickly as some other full size wipes, but they do not hurt my eyes!! So, I'll use my wipes for my face, and keep using these for my eyes!!

first let me say that these pads have a super strong chemical smell. as soon as you open the package it hits me. They leave my eyes feeling greasy and raw. i feel like i have to really scrub hard just to get it all off. my eye lids are left irritated for a while after using. also the pad is very rough so with all the scrubbing to get the makeup off just makes it worse. I also am not a fan of the packaging, not very good for storage purposes. and I normally need like 2 pads for each eye. and i don't wear that much eye makeup. definitely not going to re-purpchase.

I purchased these for the first time and I'm not impressed at all. I don't wear my eye makeup so I assumed with a wipe or 2 I'd be able to rid of all my eye makeup. I must have have used like 4 or 5 wipes just to clean one eye and even then still had to use another cleanser to remove my mascara. These wipes are extremely thin and aren't very moist. I normally used Clinique makeup remover, but wanted to give these a try since Ulta had a sale. Sadly, I will not be purchasing again.

My go-to eye makeup remover wipe. They get the job done without being greasy or oily. I like them to travel with because they aren't a liquid, and unlike some makeup remover wipes they have an actual lid so they don't dry out. The only thing they're not great for is removing waterproof mascara. But since I hardly ever wear waterproof mascara, these are perfect for me. You can also get them in a smaller travel size can which I love.

These are great for removing eye makeup, even on sensitive skin. Typically I use the liquid remover but these are so much more convenient. However they are a little thin and I wish they were larger. One trick I have is to align them diagonally on my eye and pull up towards my hairline after I put my eyeshadow on. It creates a perfect winged effect and cleans the line. Overall these are super handy to have around!

I decided to try these during an Almay BOGO 50% off sale at CVS. They're great for when I'm travelling so I don't get makeup on other people's towels and washcloths. They're gentle on my eyes but still clean well. Even when I'm wearing dark makeup, it only takes one pad. I'll do one eye and then flip it over to do the other, then my normal skin cleansing on the rest of my face.

I found these pads on clearance at Target, so I thought hey why not try them out. They have a weird smell to them, but it's not overpowering. I find these work decent if I only have mascara on, but anything more than that is just too much to warrant these. They are more of an "after a shower" cleanup, for that little bit that's sometimes left under your eyes.

I like the size and thickness of each pad. It's not too thick and it's not too thin. It's not too big and it's not too small. The only part I don't like it the way my skin feels slightly oily after use. It does it's job and it does it great. I would buy again and try another type. That's the best part. They have different types for different makeup and skins.

Definitely use this product to take off any eye make up this #Halloween 2016! It's so soft on your eyes and smells great! I've used this product many times a year and it's helped every time. I used it for glitter removal and worked like a charm. I like the container it comes in to keep the pads moist and easy to use. Buy it try it and you'll see what I mean.

Would you recommend using the oil free or eye make up remover pads that contain oil?

Does it burn your eyes? that's the one thing I hate while getting eye makeup remover you would think it be gentle on the eye considering it "eye makeup remover" but tried some products that were not worth buying for that fact.

Can this product be used daily or should I break it up to every other day?

Are they gentle on your eyes? I tried makeup remover wipes and they smelled good, but were tough on my skin : /
Does anyone know if this product burns your eyes? I have had such a hard time finding makeup remover that does not burn.....
