I bought this product because I read in Allure magazine that it was the best eye makeup remover. The first few times I used it, I though it was just "average". What I expect from an eye makeup remover is that it eliminates all of my mascara and eye shadow and whatnot is one swipe. This was not the case with this product. I also found that the individual cotton pads stuck together and I ended up using 3 at a time because I just couldn't pry them apart. Towards the end of the jar, the pads took on a yellow-ish tint. When i finally got to the end, I realized that RUST from the metal container was starting to react with the eye makeup remover formula. SO DISGUSTING! Never buy this product. I'm surprised that I can still see after using rust-infused eye makeup remover pads on them. So bad...
I personally love this product. The packaging of this stuff is all "100% of this and 0% of that" sort of language common to natural/organic products. Just so you know what I'm talking about, here is some copy from their website:
Hypoallergenic. 100% Free of Harsh Chemicals. 100% Free of Synthetic Preservatives. 100% Free of Parabens. 100% Free of GMO's. 100% Free of Synthetic Colors. 100% Free of Synthetic Fragrances. 100% Cruelty Free."
Moving past my eye-roll response to most of that, I do really like this product. The pre-moistened pads are ready to use and eliminate the hassle of finding a semi-clean cotton ball to squirt with eye makeup remover (which gives you a small window into the state of my bathroom on any given day). One pad is enough to clean both eyes and I am fully impressed with how effectively the eye makeup is swept away. Even sticky stuff like liquid liner or waterproof mascara is easily lifted. It is gentle, doesn't irritate my eyes, and doesn't leave a film. The clear, liquid soaked pad has the consistency of toner. In fact, it kind of reminds me of toner except that it removes eye makeup. Thankfully, there is no "organic" scent. It does have some cucumber extract and lavender essential oil in the mix, but the end product is essentially scent-free as far as I can tell. One thing that I think is really cool is that the pads themselves are compostable.
There are plenty of eye makeup removers in the world, but this one is unique because it is both gentle and extremely effective. And, if you care about that sort of thing, they are natural/organic to boot. \
