Not bad but not great

So this is great for removing the eyeshadow off your eyes, but it is not effective at removing waterproof mascara and the pad that the solution comes on is very rough on the eye.

So gentle!

When I got LASIK they told me before and after to be very careful with my eyes for at least 6 weeks and to use only ALMAY brand eye products because they were so gentle. These pads removed all my eye makeup so easily and kept me on the road to recovery with no issues whatsoever. If recommended by the eye surgeon, you know its good stuff!

I love it!

I love how it is a soft small circular cotton with oil. It is harmless on the eyes and it definitely wipes of make up. When I first used this product wasn't sure what to expect since i never used make up remover products. I usually would use wash clothes but that got messy. One day decided to get this product it really works. On top of that the container is neat small enough to fit in a purse on the go. Effectiveness I love how it takes off all the foundation and concealer from your skin really well. Also it wipes off mascara like a magic eraser so simple and not messy. Before buying this product it was really difficult to take off mascara all the way with just water. Ease of Use This product is easy to use and hassle free. It is great to put in a purse or even the car its a small container. Along with the the oil used in the cotton is amazing it works to remove the make up so well, but along with that it smells great.

The product is very easy to useI purchased this in conjunction with L'Oreal RevitaLift Eye Moisturizer because I have been experiencing baggy tired looking eyes out of no where! I have bad bad bad allergies, and I realized that I really need to start paying attention to how I handle these allergies to my eyes, lest I end up with these tired looking eyes forever... I use these moisturizing pads every night and the eye makeup comes off immediately, with awesome moisturization along with. Almay claims to be hypoallergenic, and from the products I have used I would have to say they are telling the truth. I like also the way it hydrates my eyes all night, with less puffiness in the morning Effectiveness Yes, it is oily because that's what removes waterproof makeup easily! these pads are so convenient and gentle and work great with little to no rubbing, just easily wipe across the area, use a soft tissue to pick up the remains and you're done! I've never used them then tried to reapply eye makeup, but can see how that might be a challenge because they do leave a residue-- I use them at night before bed-- always buy these and have had no problems at all!

The ONLY eye makeup remover I will use!

Almay Oil-Free Makeup Remover Pads are the only eye makeup remover I will use! I have been using them for years, ever since I started wearing make up, and nothing else compares! The pads are the perfect size for the eyes and they don't dry out quickly when exposed to air like other pre-moistened wipes. I tend to have sensitive skin and these makeup remover wipes are so gentle. They leave my skin clean and soft and I never have to worry about waking up with raccoon like eyes from smudged left over make up. I like to wear somewhat heavy and thick mascara and these wipes always leave my lashes clean, no clumps or residue left behind. They have a really light clean scent, they do not even smell the slightest bit chemically or strong. When I use this product I just lightly swipe the eye lid up to the brow bone, very lightly swipe under the eye, and then lightly pinch the lashes of each eye. One pad back and front always does the trick. They are a really great price for the value. Some makeup remover wipes are so big I feel like I am wasting it because I don't use enough makeup and need so much remover per day. I highly recommend this product for eye makeup!! It is unbeatable!

Love these!!!

These makeup remover pads are great. They do not have any scent and are very easy on the eyes. I find that it makes eye makeup removal very easy to take off. I have sensitive areas around my eyes and other products have irritated my eyes. I have been using Almay for over 2 years and never had any issues. The only problem I come across is when you get to the last few pads, they are literally saturated in remover. I usually have to squeeze out the pad before removing my makeup, but I do not have a problem with that, its not a big deal. I would recommend these, very inexpensive and a great product! Effectiveness They work very well, and one remover pads takes off all of my eye makeup. I follow up with cleansing my face with a Clarisonic so I do not rely on this to take off all of my makeup. I mainly use these for my eye makeup removal. Ease of Use Very easy to use and travel with. I find that these are very convenient and work very well.

Dries my skin out

2

In most cases I am a fan of Almay products, but I cannot say the same for these make remover pads. Every time I have tried to use these pads to remove my make up, the next morning I wake up with the skin on my face being extra dry, which inevitable leads to breakouts for me. I do not know if this dryness if due to the lack of oil in the product of if one of the ingredients makes my skin react badly. I would lean more towards a specific ingredient though since they have a strange almost chemical like smell to them, this smell would also make me kind of leery to use this product, even if the dryness wasn't a factor for me. They are effective at removing make up though, even waterproof mascara, so they do the job they are intended to do. I originally bought these because I loved the idea of the pads they are very convenient and overall they are less messy that traditional make up remover, but I would rather deal with a little mess than have dry skin all the time.

Not a fan.

I tried these Almay Oil-Free Makeup Remover Pads thinking they would be soft and soothing for my eyes. I am a contact lens wearer so the fact that they are 100% fragrance free and hypoallergenic was a selling point. I also assumed the picture of the cucumber and aloe meant they would nourish my eyes. I found the pads too be very wet, small, thin and they stick together. Plus, they stung my eyes a little bit and left them feeling too wet. They removed the waterproof mascara and eye shadow I wear, but are small so I had to use a couple pads for each eye. I ended up switching to the Neutragena ultra soft pads which are bigger, softer, smoother, not soaked with solution and better working overall. Effectiveness The pads are small and too wet. Ease of Use The pads aren't soft and are too small and thin to get all my eye makeup off in a couple swoops. Since the pads are so thin and wet, they tend to stick together.
