Simple, Effective and Affordable

This is a oily type makeup remover and I soak a cotton pad with some of the liquid to remover all my eye makeup and also wipe off some foundation before cleansing my skin in evenings. It doesn't irritate my eyes and it is non stinging, which is very important for an eye makeup remover.

It works very well, especially if you press the product soaked pad against the eye area for 5 seconds before wiping makeup products off your skin.

The best thing is it is very affordable and can often be found in supermarket aisles on sale for less than $10. What's there not to love about it?

Fairly effective but leaves skin feeling tight

I was really impressed with it's ability to remove eyeliner, even waterproof liquid eyeliner came off with a single wipe. However, the same could not be said for waterproof mascara. It took many wipes as a second cotton pad soaked with more of the remover to do the job. In the end, the mascara wasn't completely removed, but I have to say it does a better job that most.

The downside to this product I felt was that it left the skin around my eyes feeling tight and dry. Personally I don't think the bottle looks very appealing, if I saw it in a shop I would be willing to try it, only because it was cheap.


Great for removing eye makeup, but I had to apply eye cream straight after so my skin wouldn't feel tight.

Ideal for

For removing most eye makeup very easily, except waterproof mascara. Although not many things do remove that properly.

I loved both the makeup remover and the wipes. They are both very gentle on the skin and I had no problems using them on my eyes to remove eye make-up. I was able to remove every last smudge of eyeliner and mascara, which is what I'm looking for in a remo

Use the make-up remover with a cotton pad on the eyes. Shake the bottle first.


Anyone who wants an affordable option for removing eye makeup. The wipes are perfect for those of us who tend to get a bit lazy and just want to wipe your face make-up off in one go.

Gentle & Generous!

This product that I was so lucky to be given the opportunity ity to trial was definitely a beauty must have product for me! The main make-up product that I wear everyday is eye make-up. Mascara, eye shadow, liner, primer as well as a brow high light. So this make-up remover had it's work cut out! But I must say I was very impressed with the results. The packaging was in a generous sized bottle with a screw lid. I liked the light blue colour too. It is very easy to use as long as you read the instructions first. You must shake up the bottle really well first otherwise I found the formula to be a little greasy and didn't work that well. Once I'd figured that out, I only needed to use one cotton ball for each eye plus one other for the rest of my face. I found the product to be gentle on my skin and didn't sting my eyes at all when removing my eye make-up, especially my eye liner which is usually a challenge for me to remove without some tears. Overall I loved it but honestly preferred the Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes only because they were quicker to use and left my skin feeling fresher.


Go easy pouring the bottle on your cotton bud, you only need a little bit. I used 3 for my whole face.

Ideal for

Heavy eye make-up wearers, it removes it ALL without stinging like crazy!

I have a fiarly sensitive under eye area and as nutrogena is usually pretty skin friendly I decided to give it a go when my favourite ran out. Well, as you just apply it straight to a cotton bud, I found it very harsh on my skin and very hard to move around! Additionally, I would still find traces of my eye make up a few days later- gross. Wouldn't buy again

Ideal for

Non-sensitive Skin

Gentle yet effective

I was very happy to receive this product to trial from beauty heaven as I had just run out of eye makeup remover and had been keen to give this one a try.
My first impression was that I liked the simple, subtle packaging with the large opening so you can easily put enough product onto a cosmetic pad to saturate the lashes, although it does make it a little difficult to control the amount that comes out.

I have to say I didn’t really like the scent, which to me smelt quite chemical and artificial, but it isn’t overpowering enough to stop me from using the product. It also didn’t work quite as quickly as some other makeup removers that I have tried, so I needed to hold it over my eyes for a little longer than usual, however it felt very gentle and there was no stinging when I accidentally got some of the liquid in my eye – which is a huge bonus and makes the extra minute or so to remove the makeup completely worthwhile.

It is probably also important to note that although the bottle states it is oil-free, there is some greasy residue left behind, so it is still necessary to cleanse properly afterwards – but that is pretty standard as far as makeup removers for waterproof cosmetics go.

Overall I was quite happy with this product, and although it isn’t my favourite eye makeup remover that I have tried, I probably would buy it again because it is effective at a very affordable price.

Great choice for the budget-conscious

Neutrogena makes some great skincare products for those who want to take a more serious approach to their beauty regiment without breaking the bank.

This eye makeup remover does not disappoint - it's effective and best of all, doesn't irritate the eyes.

I do not wear mascara so cannot comment on its performance in removing stubborn mascara but it performs well in removing pencil/liquid/gel eyeliners.

I simply pour a small amount onto 2 cotton pads and gently press over my area for 10 seconds - enough for the product to soak through and dissolve the eye makeup. After that, a few gentle swipes is all it takes to remove any residual traces.

This product is lightly scented but the scent doesn't linger.

I would prefer if Neutrogena changed the packaging slightly - there needs to be a stopper to eliminate accidental spillage which would make it more travel-friendly.

Otherwise, it's a great beauty buy. My eye area feels soft after use and even though the product is oil-free, it doesn't dry out your skin.

Oil free?!?!?

This eye make up remover is exactly that. In an excellent sized bottle of 112ml it removes every SINLGE trace of makeup with ease. It is a dual phased product so as advised be sure to shake before use to combine these magical formulations.
I do not usually wear alot of makeup in my eyes however, as I received this as part of the trial team I "glamed up" every day that I had it so that I can leave a fair review. So with a black and grey smokey eye, heavy on the liner and mascara EVERYDAY. I can honestly tell you that this stuff leaves your eyes NAKED. No sweat! I applied mine with a cotton pad, straight on my lid then in a down and out motion evrything was gone in two swipes. I did have a little in my lower lashes but with one stroke under my eye it was as if I had never worn makeup a day in my life. Be sure to shake to combine as recommended.No dragging, pulling, rubbing required at all. Which makes me absolutely adore this genius eye makeup remover. Normally I would be wearing my WATERPROOF LINER AND MASCARA for the next two days but with the make up removal works a dream. There is no stinging, watering or irritation to the eyes, it is as neautral as water.It also does not AT ALL dry out or drag my delicate eye area, quite the opposite actually. Although it is an oil free formula, it does leave a little slick behind, which I actually had NO PROBLEM with as I found it was only enough to leave the eye area nicely moisturised after. It is almost a fragrance free formula as it has an ever so slight smell to it. I could probably say it smells as strong as witch hazel does which is great for me as I can't stand too many irritants(like perfumes and fragrances) in products where it is not necessary. I personally wouldn't purchase any type of makeup remover with extra fragrances in it. So this is great. My only complaint, which does not matter so much as the amount of product is fantastic and you really only need 3-4 drops of the stuff per eye-BUT it is that the lid is a screw off cap, which allows too much product to flow from the bottle. It either needs a spray or squirt top type lid just to prevent so much pouring out onto your cotton pad which can then lead to too much product being applied leaving a greasy feeling residue. Like I said though, you get soo much product and only need a tiny bit per use so it is great stuff. Which is why this will be a keeper for ma and I will 100% be happy to purchase it again and again. Thanks Neautrogena!


Shake before use to mix as it is a dual phased combination.
