Best Eye Make-Up Remover
The first thing I noticed about this product was the quite plain blue packaging, nothing flashy. But once I tried the product I understood why, they didn't need the packaging to be flashy because the product can sell itself. I love the fact that it doesn't have a strong scent like some others on the market and that it doesn't irritate my skin. It's easy to use, just shake to activate the ingredients and moisten the cotton pad (you don't need much at all) and wipe, and ALL eye make-up was removed including waterproof mascara. The best thing about this product was that there was absolutely NO residue left on my skin after using, my skin felt nice and soft like nothing had been there in the first place. I really love this product and will buy again for sure when it runs out!!

Nice eye makeup remover
Though this makeup remover is oil-free, the formula does appear and feel a little oily. I'm not too fussed because it does remove my eye makeup and mascara quite easily without any problems. The formula is gentle and doesn't sting or irritate my skin or eyes. Just have to remember to shake the bottle as the dual-phase formula does separate after sitting there for a while. Also be careful of the large bottle opening.

Beats even my most stubborn makeup effortlessly!
Admittedly, I usually avoid eye makeup removers in favour of the trusty makeup wipes by the bed. Other makeup removers have always irritated my sensitive eyes, or have failed to remove makeup- which is a little frustrating when that is all you want in the first place!
This remover deftly removed even my weekend smoky eye effortlessly with one swipe, leaving me sting-free and sans-redeye. No rubbing on the sensitive eye area means I am adding this to my beauty regime, combined with the trusty wipes.

TT: Cleaner with Neutrogena ;)
What I love about the clear bottle was seeing bubbles swirling around when shaken, which I find quite amusing. Since it’s an eye makeup remover, I expected the bottle to smell like chock full’s of chemicals but the scent wasn’t overpowering or strong at all.
Texture is watery yet had a cloudy tinge and when applied to eyelids, it didn’t burn/sting my sensitive eye area.
I used a cotton ball which was pressed into the opening, then tipped the bottle slightly so it could come out without spilling everywhere. A little bit of the content is all you need for each eye. That said, I wasn’t left with any greasy residue.
It successfully removed all my heavy liner, shadow & for your speculators out there, yes even my beloved mascara. Say goodbye to panda smudges once and for all with this beauty!
NOTE: If you knock it, then pretty much a lot will escape (opening is fairly big) so be careful.
Neutrogena is a trusted brand that I have used for ages as nasty reactions just don’t occur for me and this product is no exception!
Overall verdict, I would be delighted to repurchase Neutrogena Oil Free Makeup Remover when I drain it all! :D

no more panda eyes
i can honestly say before this trial i have never tried any eye make up remover, I am someone who probably should though, as i live in eyeliner and mascara and i like it a little thick, and it has never been easy to remove, so i own a lot of towels that are ruined with black eye make up marks,but thats all changed now thanks to Beautyheaven giving me the chance to trial this product , it is amazingly easy to use, and non irritating in the eyes, removes even waterproof mascara with ease, i found its scent is subtle, and i would recommend this product to any one who likes to wear eye makeup and dont like panda eyes, i will buy a new bottle of this when i run out

Neutrogena eye make-up remover is a blast of amazement for me. During the day i decided to go crazy with my eye makeup to really test this product. That night i grabbed a small handful of cotton balls thinking I'm going to need all of them if i was going to remove all my makeup. Funny enough i only needed one cotton ball for each eye! I had no irritation, no stinging and better yet..no need for scrubbing. The skin around my eye's were left feeling all nice and moisturized. There's not too much of a strong scent either.

Trial Team Review
I have written a review for this product before, but I have been selected to review this product along with other products of neutrogena that removes make up (thank you BH for selecting me to review these products). I decided to do this review early as I still use this product religiously from the day I wrote my first review! This then leaves me to trial the other product for a good period of time and I will review that closer to the due date. In this review I will go into more details :).
The packaging of the bottle is very simple and clean. It's a light blue opaque bottle and when you first see the product it has two layers of liquids like oil and water if you were to ever place them in a bottle. It is therefore important that you shake the bottle well before use as the liquids have to mix. Once this has been done the liquid becomes a cloudy whiteish color. But when you are not using it again the liquids will separate again.
The product has a smell to it but its not of anything in particular and it is very very light (nothing offensive) so it should be ideal for anyone with sensitive skin :).
As much as this product claims to be oil free I must admit that it is not oil free. It is oily but nothing similar to other products which I have tried before which were EXTREMELY oily and unpleasant. I like it for this reason that it is a little bit oily (it is just the perfect amount of oil) as it doesn't leave my skin dry. This is exactly why make up comes off a lot more easily as you don't have to rub your eyes in a rough manner to get your make up off. The oil of the product loosens the make up off your face making it a non abrasive way to remove make up.
HOW EASY WAS IT TO USE?
I love love love this eye make up remover since the day I have discovered it I have always used this makeup remover and no other. I guess it depends on how other people do their night skin care routine but for me I usually like to wash my face first to allow the make up to properly loosen and then I wash off as much of it as I can. And to make my face extra clean and to ensure every bit of make up is off my eyes I use this to remove it and it is soo gentle and easy to make your eyes clean particularly when you have a heavy make up eye look. After this I use my toner to remove that thin and when I say thin it is a thin layer of oil off and my skin feels loved and moisturized. I've never looked back as with other make up removers I found it hard to rub make up off and it felt like waterproof water going around my eyes and my eyes were often red from rubbing too hard trying to get make up off. This product is nothing like that LOVE IT.
And it doesn't take much of the product for me to remove the remaining make up off my face. One bottle usually lasts me..3-4 months. Again this all depends on when you remove your make up in your skin care routine.
WOULD I USE IT AGAIN?
I've been using it for the past 4-5 years I don't see any reason why I wouldn't use it for the rest of my life lol. It's cheap its affordable its gentle no smells it removes all make up like it promises and great for sensitive skin as it doesn't sting! All ticks there for me!

Gently packs a punch!
I've recently switched to the Neutrogena Oil Free Makeup Remover and am really happy with my choice. This design of the bottle is lovely and simple, although I'd prefer a snap top lid - screwing the lid on and off can be a hassle if you're in a rush.
Like some other eye makeup removers, this formulation has two components that you shake together before applying to a cotton pad. My advice? You really only need a small amount (compared to other brands) to take off all your makeup including waterproof mascara. Obviously this depends on how much makeup you have on! If you do use too much then a oily residue does seem to remain on the skin, which confuses me considering it's an 'oil free' product. I'll be repurchasing for sure.

Yay and Nay
This product worked well, but I just dont understand. It clearly says 'Oil Free' but when you see it on the shelf there are clearly two layers. It mightnt be oily, but it totally looks like it
