Almay Eye Makeup Remover Liquid is great. I used to use the premoistened pads all the time - but they seemed to start making them with less and less remover. So I switched about a year ago to the straight liquid. I love the soothing cool feal, I use it after I wash my face even if I didn't have make up on that day. I wear water proof in the summer and it works well removing that - you will need a little more elbow grease than non-waterproof products that come off 1-2-3, but it works well enough. I feel like it keeps the skin around my eyes calm and moisturised without oil. I cannot stand sticky, oil residue in my eye or on my skin. This product has none of that - no sting in the eye either. It's the best all around eye remover product I've ever used.

In 20 years of daily use, this never, ever stung my eyes. Now it stings like crazy (and for a prolonged period). Comparing my new bottle with the old one, I see that the order of all the ingredients has recently changed -- and there's a new one, Diazolidinyl Urea. It's a preservative that works by releasing formaldehyde. From its Material Safety Data Sheet: "Causes severe eye irritation. Will cause painful burning or stinging of eyes and lids, watering of eyes, and inflammation of conjunctiva." It's also a known carcinogen, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer. I see from the reviews that other users have noticed irritation when there previously was none. Mystery solved.

buy Neutrogena instead

      This does a poor job at removing my eye makeup--and I'm not even wearing waterproof stuff. Whereas Neutrogena Oil Free remover takes off all makeup with only one cottonball, I could use many with this and still have makeup on my eyes in the morning. Plus, it burns my eyes!

        I tried the moisturizing version and it was kind of gooey in comparison to the oil free eye makeup remover. This product thoroughly removes eye makeup with out irritating my eyes.

          I have very sensitive eyes and have problems with many eye makeup remover products. This remover works well without causing any eye irritation.

            I have used this product for over 5 years and really like it. My only complaint is the package. When I travel, this often leaks, I have to transport it in a bag, and always wash off the bottle before using (product covers it).

                This is the most useless eye makeup remover I have ever used. This DOES NOT work for waterproof mascara. Water is more effective than this. I put it on cotton and scrub over and over again and nothing comes off. Useless.

                    Comments about Almay Eye Makeup Remover Liquid, Oil Free, 4 fl oz:

                    Pro:The Almay Eye Makeup Remover is great for removing any face makeup. It is almost like a toner, feeling even gentler to me. BUT this is true for many similar products out there. So you probably would be better off with cheaper brands or even simple cleansing / baby wipes.

                    Pro: Does remove minor traces of waterproof makeup like eyeliner.
                    Con#2: Takes too long to remover waterproof mascara (I use Loreal), requiring an unnecessary amount of of tugging and swiping around the area (not good as this causes wrinkles). It took 5-10mins to remove mine and even then it wasn't completely removed.

                    Pro: Soothing effect, non greasy.
                    Con#3. The faint trace of alcohol smell is the reason for this soothing effect. This is unhealthy and may dry out sensitive skin overtime.

                      Comments about Almay Eye Makeup Remover Liquid, Oil Free, 4 fl oz:

                      I do like this remover. It takes my eyeshadows off really fast. First I use a makeup wipe to remove my face makeup. Then I just wet a cotton round and let it sit on my eye for 5-10 seconds. But with the mascara, it takes a little while longer. That is when I get a q-tip and rub it into my eyelashes with both ends. I have to use like 3 q-tips but it works. Then I wash my face with my cleanser, but I still hit my eyes 1 more time with my cleanser and make sure I get lots of water on my lids to get all of what may be left over . When I wake up, I don't have racoon eyes.

                      People have to understand that mascara is and will always be hard to remove. I use olive oil sometimes and it still leaves some mascara left over. If you don't want to deal with that consequence, don't use mascara.

                        This is the best eye make-up remover. It removes all traces of even the longest wearing liners and mascaras, without leaving oily residue. I'll never be without it!.
