I know that this is a staple for so many makeup bags, but unfortunately it turned out to be the opposite for me. First use - it stung quite a lot when I was removing my eye makeup, but I had been to an event and my eye makeup was a lot heavier than usual so thought I'd try it on a normal day, same thing happened again so it went straight in the bin. Since then, I have always either asked for a product sample or purchased the travel size version, just to make sure it suits my skin! Sorry Simple!

It does an amazing job of getting off heavier make up- but it can struggle a little with stubborn mascara. But even then, it does a better job than other makeup removers. It is very gentle on sensitive skin and doesn't sting at all. I highly recommend this and I rarely use any other makeup remover after discovering this one

Does what it says on the bottle. Removes eye make up with no fuss whilst being gentle on your skin. Although it does sting if you get it in your eyes! I love this because it’s not oily like some eye make up removers can be so it doesn’t leave any oily residue behind just a nice fresh feeling which is what I love about taking my make up off at the end of the day! Can’t fault it and for the price it’s definitely a go to for me.

This makeup remover, like stated, is good for removing makeup from your eyes. I personally prefer a makeup remover that removes all my makeup as it is much easier and efficient than using different ones. I tried to remove foundation with it and it removed about three quarters of it but a lot was still left own my face that I could not remove with it. Also, I find with waterproof mascaras and eyeliners it sometimes doesn't remove all of it and there is still some residue. It is an okay product for the price but I have seen much better makeup removers for as similar price at drugstores.

The only make up remover I need. Great for sensitive skin as it doesn't burn or tingle. Will remove all traces of eye make up. For some more stubborn types I hold the cotton pad over my eye for a few seconds to let it get to work on waterproof mascara and eyeliner.

My go-to makeup remover! Tends to make my skin break out so I only use it to remove eye makeup, however it lasts ages as I don't need much and it only takes a few swipes to remove makeup completely. Takes a bit more elbow grease to budge waterproof mascara but very good for everyday looks!

This is my typical make-up remover for my eyes; I have found that you need quiet a lot of product to remove the make-up. If it gets into your eyes it may irritate them slightly, it did make my eyes water however, I will continue to use it until I find a suitable make-up remover for skin as sensitive as mine.

It is good for removing the rest of my makeup but for eyes, it really hard to get off and stings and irritates my eyes. It's not as oily as other eye makeup removers I've tried which is a plus but I would not buy it again.

I love this eye remover but often it gets in my eyes making them water. I don't mind this as I know all my makeup is off. I will usually use it all over my face after my eyes too and it works. I put it on a makeup wipe to make it easier to remove the makeup.

Its a good product to remove makeup, but it leaves my eyes feeling very sticky, and it leaves them very sore as the product does get in my eyes a little, and it leaves them watering for ages. also, it has a very weird consistency, and i find it very difficult to use on my eyes as it takes a while to soak in and remove the makeup.

I like this product, especially for the price, it does leave an oily feeling but I personally prefer this around my eyes so they don't feel dried out and tight. I can understand some of the reasons for the negative reviews but at such a low price I don't think it would hurt to try.

I find this takes a few sweeps to get the makeup off but not too bad, although not very good with waterproof mascara. It doesn't hurt my skin but makes my eyes water. Next time I will buy something else unless I'm on a budget in which case I will have to settle for this.
