    Rubbing required for eye makeup

    I have dry skin and when I used this over my entire face, at first it felt oily but then absorbed into my skin leaving a silky feeling. I didn’t feel the need to rinse it off when I was done.
    I usually wear waterproof eyelash primer, mascara, and liquid eyeliner. I placed a cotton pad on the eyelid for about 30 seconds before trying to remove my eye makeup. It took over 15 swipes to remove all my eye makeup. I was definitely rubbing to get it off and it still left a smudge of eyeliner and mascara behind. The micellar water I normally use did not take nearly as many swipes to get it off.
    I would continue using this as a makeup remover but use an additional eye makeup remover if I were using waterproof products. I also wear “natural makeup” and this removes it easily. It’s not as effective as I hoped but not a bad product either.

    Undecided

    This product does work when removing make up at least for me! I have both oily skin during the Summer and dry skin during winter. My face is a combination skin and this product does it's job. It's effective but dry skin does occur afterwards. I would probably recommend the other version of this product because that one seems better when applying to remove makeup off.

    Not very effective.

    I bought this product at Shoppers Drug Mart after looking for a less expensive micellar water that would remove waterproof makeup (paid around $10 on sale). It does a fine job of removing foundation/lipstick etc., but most products do. I was specifically interested in the claim that it would remove waterproof mascara. Unfortunately I feel like this is not very effective at doing what it says.

    I usually shake up this solution, soak a cotton pad with it, and then leave it on my eyelashes for about 30 seconds to let it sink in and start to dissolve my mascara. This product just doesn't cut it when it comes to removing mascara - it takes a lot of rubbing, which is irritating, and even then I am still left with noticeable leftover makeup on my lashes. Wouldn't recommend if you are looking for something for removing waterproof mascara!

    Would not purchase again

    I found this to be very greasy/oily on my skin. It did not leave my skin feeling clean and refreshed, although it does take the makeup off. It states it’s safe to remove eye makeup but I only used it a couple of times for my eyes and it burned so I stopped using it.

    Makes my eyes water

    I'll start with what is great about this product: it's very affordable and removes makeup easily. It is great for using on lips and skin to remove lipstick or foundation
    I can't recommend using this on your eyes, or using as a "no-rinse" option. It makes my eyes water like crazy. It does leave residue on the skin as well, so I would recommend using this as a first cleanse step before going in with a treatment cleanser. I think there are better options out there for a more versatile micellar water cleanser.

    This is certainly not my favorite product,but it does what it is suppose to do,it is a good product.I find it does leave my skin a little dry after using it a few times.

    Perhaps I was using it wrong, I don't think it's very good. It could not catch makeup that wasn't fully removed. I was expecting more out of this product

    I'm not a huge fan of this cleanser. It leaves me face feeling dry like parchment and I don't find it removes my make up well. It's a good price, but not a great product.

    I use this all in one cleaning not very often, I found it a little bit on the greasy side. It removes very well mascara but after that I use I need to use a cotton with water in order to take the product out.

    J'ai acheté ce produit pour mon garçon de 13 ans. Etant adolescent, la routine doit être rapide! Cependant, sa peau n'a pas bien réagi au produit donc nous avons du cesser l'emploi.
