The one step I dread each night is taking off my eye makeup. I've tried lots of products - usually the oils/liquids you apply with a cotton ball. Call me lazy or cheap, but I hate having to buy cotton balls all the time and most of those products take some scrubbing still and usually leave you feeling sticky or oily after. Then came this hydrating lotion. I was afraid it would be greasy, but in fact it was not greasy at al...just soothingl. I just wet my face, apply a nickel size, rub for a min (didnt have to rub hard at all, which is a blessing for my eyes), rinsed quickly, and ta-da! All clean with NOTHING left behind. I usually wear lots of mascara and a black eyeliner...it even removed the eyeliner without me having to scrub. After I rinse, I can quickly wash my face and be ready for bed. Its amazing how a change to one little product like this can change the monotony of my before bed routine. A lifesaver!

    Comments about Neutrogena Hydrating Eye Makeup Remover Lotion, 3 fl oz:

    Was skeptical using Neutrogena Eye Makeup Remover because of some of the reviews. Glad I tried it anyways. I use a cotton round with about a dime size remover to take off eye makeup (mascara, liner, shadow). Just apply across my closed eyes once or twice, then under and over my eyelashes to get makeup off. Sometimes I use one for both eyes, sometimes one for each eye, depending on how thick my mascara was applied. Never had it bother my eyes like some have mentioned, and doesn't pull out my eyelashes. Leaves skin around eyes feeling nice and soft, not greasy. First eye makeup remover I've found that I can stand to use more than once, price is good, too.

        Comments about Neutrogena Hydrating Eye Makeup Remover Lotion, 3 fl oz:

        The creme is terrible. I had to rub and re-apply three times and rub much harder than I think is advisable to do on each eye to remove black eyeliner. Even with tightly closed eyes the creme got into my eyes. I have used twice but will be throwing this out. Am disappointed because I have used Neutrogena sunscreen and other products for years.

          I am a wearer of contact lenses and am always searching for effective eye makeup removers that aren't oily and don't sting or dry-out my eyes. I also wear (waterproof) mascara every day. I tried this product on a whim and was pleasantly surprised! I found it to be very gentle and very effective, removing all traces of eye makeup. I will definitely continue to purchase this product.

          Not very effective for waterproof

          By 

          from Chicago, IL

          Comments about Neutrogena Hydrating Eye Makeup Remover Lotion, 3 fl oz:

          Pros: Doesn't leave a greasy residue

          Cons: I'm sure this takes off normal makeup just great, this is not very effective for waterproof. My holy grail was the Maybelline Clean Express lotion (the cream, not the biphase liquid), and I only purchased this because my HG seems to be discontinued on Drugstore.com. However, this remover lotion doesn't come close. It takes a very long time for me to remove my eye makeup (I wear waterproof everyday) and even after washing my face, I have remnants of mascara and eyeliner underneath my eyes.

            When Nivea stopped making their eye makeup remover, I was distraught. It was the only one that I ever liked. All the other eye makeup removers were greasy or it took a ton of product to get all the makeup off. Then I found this product. Oh happy days. You don't need to use a lot of it for it to work, it leaves no oily residue, actually it leaves nothing behind. I love it and hope they will never discontinue this product.

            too much tugging around the eye area

                Comments about Neutrogena Hydrating Eye Makeup Remover Lotion, 3 fl oz:

                Very disappointed in this makeup remover. One of the cardinal rules of applying/removing eye makeup is not to pull or tug on the eye area since it will ultimately damage delicate eye tissue. Yet what do you have to do to get eye makeup off with this remover? Pull and tug! Whether you use a cotton ball or just your fingers, you end up rubbing and rubbing at your eye and when you're finally done, you still have flakes of that heavy duty volumizing mascara you've been using under your lower lashline.

                Just about any liquid eye makeup remover works better than this, I swear. I stupidly used this for a week before I realized what I was doing to the skin around my eyes. Yes, it's inexpensive, but if it's not effective, what good is it? I won't even hand it off to a friend. Don't waste your money unless you want to have crow's feet and bags years ahead of schedule.

                    I used to use Nivea Visage eye make up remover that has been discontinued. This is an okay product, it is definitely better than the "oily water" type removers; it does work better on removing mascara than even expensive Lancome products. However this one does sting my eyes a little.

                      I've been testing different eye makeup remover products. Most products which claim to remove eye makeup either bring stinging pain to my eyes or leave behind this filmy, greasy feeling. This sounds really unprofessional but my method of testing is to see if I can open my eyes while washing without feeling pain.

                      Glad to say this product is as gentle as it claims. Removes most mascara (even waterproof) very well though I end up using more than I'd like. No fragrance which is a huge plus.

                      The only downside was I was hoping that despite this being an "eye makeup remover" it would also remove the rest of my makeup. Nope. After i washed my face I wiped my face on a towel and there was still foundation on my face-must no mascara. So you still need another cleanser for the rest of your face. Bummer. Guess I should read labels more clearly.

                          I love this, it's my favorite eye makeup remover, and I always keep several backups. It's easy to use, non-drying, and takes off everything easily. I tend to wear quite a bit of eye makeup, and it takes it all off. I put a dollop in my fingers, massage into both eyelids and brows for about 15-20 seconds, and tissue it off. With 3 tissues, everything is removed, with out scrubbing or tugging at my eyes. LOVE this stuff, I hope they never stop making it!
