Not a fan
This remover is really effective when it comes to getting rid of waterproof make-up on the eyes, however I don't know if it is my sensitive skin or not but this products seriously dries out the skin around my eyes when I use it.
It dries my skin out to the point where it feel like rough sandpaper and even when I apply moisturiser after washing off the residue it leaves behind, a couple of hours later and the next day the skin around my eyes will still be dry and irritated. Like I said though, it could be just my sensitive skin reacting to the product, won't be re-purchasing.

easily removes waterproof makeup!
This remover has two immiscible layers - an oily layer and a water layer. When shaken, soak a pad with the solution and press onto the eyelid. The formula is very effective in removing EVERY TRACE of waterproof make up on my eyes (this is the only type of make up I wear!). All of the make melts and disintegrates off my eyes without needing to rub, scrub and irritate my eyes. The formula also doesn't sting my eyes - another bonus!
Leaves an oily residue due to the effectiveness of its removing power - I recommend cleansing your face straight afterward to remove this nasty layer!
Great price for a makeup remover that actually removes all waterproof makeup! Definitely recommend to those who regularly wear waterproof makeup, but cleanse your face straight after you remove your makeup to remove the oily residue!

Great but not amazing
This is great for removing waterproof eye makeup, the only downside is that it leaves a oily residue around my eye area which isn't the best feeling and some of the small amount of makeup that is left over spreads because it's so oily. Good for the price but I think I will keep using my Dior Instant eye makeup remover.

The only eye make-up remover I use!
I use this all the time and have gone through bottles and bottles of this stuff, it is amazing!
It takes off all of my day to day eye make-up even waterproof mascara like a breeze. It even takes off all of my heavy stage make-up and makes me look normal again.
I just put a little of this onto a cotton pad hold it on my eye for a few seconds then swipe away and it all comes off. If I have any stubborn make-up on then I will gentle wiggle the cotton pad back and forth to shift the make-up and get it off. It is really gentle on your eyes so if you do get it in your eyes it doesn't sting or burn which is a plus. I will even use this to get my false eye lashes off and they literally swipe off with the cotton pad. It helps to loosen the glue so you don't get the pulling on top of your eyes when you remove them by pulling them off.

Effective, Gentle, great price.
The title says it all. It has a two phase system (so it needs to be shaken before use), is affective at removing all makeup. It has very little smell. Easy to use- no more harsh scrubbing or repeatedly washing face to remove all makeup. I use this before washing my face.

Best Eye Makeup Remover I've used!
I absolutely love this product!
It does leave a bit of residue after you use it, but that isn't a deal-breaker for me as it's the only remover I've used that fully gets rid of my eye makeup. Just make sure you cleanse your face afterwards!
It's affordable, and it doesn't sting my sensitive eyes.
I will continue to repurchase this!

Just started using it, I like it
Just bought recently and recently started.
Packaging is good, easy to get out. I would've liked it with a smaller hole when the product comes out, rather than a big one - as it may spill out easily. Small bottle, so it's easy to take anywhere.
Shake it well and the product is great. Easy to take off mascara and any eyeshadow and eyeliner I use.
It doesn't leave my eyes feeling heavy or itchy, and no oily feeling afterwards. I really like it.

Not sure how I feel about this
So to start off with "no oily residue"? Where's that coming from. It's sooo oily!!!! I cbfd using a makeup remover on the rest of my face one night so I continued with this, my face felt gross! My skin broke out like Crazy & I know it's an eye makeup remover but it definitely is oily.. In all fairness it removes eye makeup effortlessly, mascara can be a bit more work but overall it's pretty good.
I don't know if I would rebuy this though cos the oiliness really puts me off :/ RESPONSE FROM NEUTROGENA: You may be assured that NEUTROGENA* values the comments you have made regarding the products in their skincare range, especially as such feedback provides the company with an opportunity to better understand what consumers think about their products.

Super oily and greasy!
I did not like this eye makeup remover at all. Although I did use up the bottle only to never purchase it ever again.
It does an ok job of removing eye makeup but it is sooo oily and leaves my eyelips drenched with oil which I found really hard to remove without hurting the delicate eye area.
I have gone back to my Nivea daily essentials eye makeup remover which I adore.

Effective and cheap!
This is my bathroom staple. I've used this for years now and haven't found a makeup remover that is as good. Unlike other reviewers, I don't think this leaves an oily residue. It's very effective at removing eye makeup including mascara.
