Wonderful for eye makeup but you could use it all over, no worries. No fragrance but the chamomile and cucumber soothe and the aloe makes your face feel so nice. Good, clean stuff. Enjoy! D!

It doesn't dry my eye area but I do use an under eye cream every day. It doesn't remove makeup with one swipe - I usually saturate a pad and lay it against my eye for a few seconds. Then the makeup wipes right off.

It is not drying, but I found out by accident that it works best if you rinse your face with warm water first and use a cotton round with the product to remove the make-up. I tend to need less remover this way.

No it isn't drying and you only have to pass a cotton pad over the eye area 1 to 3 times depending on how heavy your eye makeup is. Its gentle.

answer 11
Let me start off by saying I have CRAZY-sensitive skin, so if I can use a product, virtually anybody else could, too. This is my favorite makeup remover; it's extremely gentle and amazingly effective. It's not drying at all--in fact, I find it leaves a slight greasy residue. I remove my makeup at night right before I shower, so that doesn't bother me, unless it's bad enough to leave a weird oily residue on my eyeballs (which this doesn't). It also doesn't require scrubbing or tuging on the delicate eye area, ebven though most of my eye makeup is waterproof. I simply shake it up, soak a cotton pad, and gentle rub it over my eye. My makuep is gone in a couple of swipes. Because it takes so little, the bottle lasts longer than some others. I'd definitely encourage you to try it!

I don't think it wastes too much. I use a warm wet eye pad and hold it over the openning and tip it back, I don't have any spillage or waste. I actually use less product on a wet eye pad.

answer 2
I haven't had a problem with waste (except for when flying and the cabin pressure forces some of it out of the container)

What I do is place my cotton pad over the top of the bottle then tip it over making sure I keep the cotton pad in place. This gets just enough product on the pad and I can usually do both eyes with it.

If you use a cotton ball instead of a pad, the perfect amount comes out, and it isn't wasted. Just hold the cotton at the top of the bottle and tip it over, but don't pour it on.

i think it would waste more if it was restricted. all you have to do is put the cotton pad on top and turn it upside down for a nano-second and then flip it back to normal and do that a couple times all over the pad and you're good. i have a make up remover with a top like lotion and ive used more because i have to squirt it out and it comes out in big amounts

You have to be careful when opening it for the very first time. Mine actually opened to one tiny little hole so that it doesn't come pouring out. I hope this helps for next time or for anyone who is considering purchasing this product.

I use a large cosmetic square (cotton-like material) and tip the bottle in three different spots. That doesn't saturate your square, but it's enough to get the job done. Works great for me.

I've used it with contact lenses no problem. That being said, you should really remove your contact lenses before removing your makeup, rather than removing your makeup then your contacts. It can irritate your eyes/contacts, even when your remover is contact-lense-friendly.

answer 4
I wear contacts and have never had a problem using this product.. Some oil-free make-up removers still feel like they have oil in them and leave a film that blurs my vision.

This product is different. It lifts the make-up without me having to tug on my eyes but it doesn't leave a film.

I've even used it to remove mascara before heading out to the gym without first removing my contacts and I've had no problems. I just use focus the cotton square with the make-up remover on my eyelashes alone, lifting from under the last, without pressing on my lid or smearing removed-mascara into my eyes.
