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.

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

This is the best eye makeup remover as it has no oily residue. It easily removes my waterproof makeup, which is what I wear daily. I wouldn't use anything else.

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

    I thought it would be similar to Neutrogena's Oil free eye makeup remover, but Almay's forces you to rub under your eyes with a tissue or baby wipe to remove mascara...and it doesn't work at all on waterproof mascara. I was disappointed- returned it and bought Neutrogena's again.

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

      The product is different now. Smells strong and doesnt remove eye makeup easily. I feel I am tugging at my skin and it burns my eyes, feels rough on my tender eye area. Not happy. I feel like I've aged since using the newer packaged one. Wish I had the old one or something softer, usefull, effective.

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

          I have been using this product for years, since before they changed their packaging. I simply love it because it is as effective as premium department store brands at a fraction of the cost. There is no way the "oil free" version of this product will work on waterproof makeup. Use the version with oil for waterproof makeup. I do not wear a lot of makeup, despite my age. I don't need it and it matters not to me.

          This is a fabulous product. Give it a chance. You will love it.

              This is a really good eye makeup remover for taking off eye makeup that is not waterproof. (I don't wear the waterproof type so I can't say anything about that.)
              I react to a lot of products and this one is gentle and never bothers my eyes, yet it satisfactorily removes my eyeliner, eye shadow and fairly thick mascara.

                  I tried this product twice and both times it burned my eyes. I used it to remove Almay mascara. I won't use it again.
