For what it is and what it claims to do, it's pretty good.
Being someone who has sensitive eyes, this "extra gentle" eye makeup remover is right up my alley. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. As other reviewers have stated, it is not the most powerful eye makeup remover on the market. But it doesn't claim to be - it claims to be gentle, and it is! It feels like water, but it glides nicely over the eye area without pulling the skin. It also smells nice.
I use one of those round cotton pads, squirt a bit of product onto it, swipe over my eyelid, open my eyes (which doesn't sting because this product IS gentle), then while looking in the mirror, I just gently go back and forth under my eye until all of the mascara is gone, then I wash my face. And that works for me. It would be nice to have a product that removes everything immediately, but really about 90 seconds worth of work using a product that will not leave your eyes looking red and irritated is not that bad.
My only problem with this product is a few of the ingredients are "questionable". Having moved toward using strictly organic beauty products, this is not something I will continue to use. But if that was not a concern for me, I'd be happy to use this product indefinitely.

Not good for waterproof mascara, but is gentle
This eye makeup remover does what it says, it is gentle and perfect for all skin types especially sensitive skin. It definitely moisturizes the eye area, keeping my eyelids soft and supple, however it does not effectively remove waterproof mascara. It is extremely difficult to use for waterproof mascara and I have to scrub my eyelids harshly and use up a lot of the product to clean off my mascara slightly. It does remove most of the residue from the makeup, except my mascara. The tiny opening of the product means that it takes a while to get out the makeup remover and sometimes just comes out by the drop. I would only recommend this for light eye makeup and for non-waterproof mascara rather than heavy makeup and waterproof mascara.

Doesn't remove everything
This is just as it says, Gentle. It does not remove all make up only very light make up. When trying to remove mascara it seems all gone but then I wake up in the morning with panda eyes so I don't recommend this one as a great eye make up remover.

Not all it's cracked up to be.
It works to an extent but that's after I've literally gauged at my eye lids. Using a random skin lotion works better to remove my make up and doesn't hurt as much. I've had the same bottle for months and months now because it doesn't do the job at all.

Best eye makeup remover.
This is definitely the best eye makeup remover, although, if you're using it every day, it doesn't last very long :/ lucky it's cheaply priced :) I have sensitive skin, and this doesn't affect my eyes at all.

Removes normal SPF and light make-up with ease
I have always loved gentle and easy to use makeup remover when on a budget. I love this one so much! I actually use it for all over my face, as from past experiences I found the other makeup removers just didn't agree with my skin. Ever since using this I have softer and more agreeable skin after makeup removal. It is a great remover for anyone who is looking for an affordable item in their beauty closets!

Gentle and that's it.
This was as the name suggests a very gentle makeup remover but it just did not seem to remove everything. I would always find traces of makeup leftover when I go through with my toner and I could still feel some product build up on my eyes. It is nice because of its gentleness and doesn't leave the greasy feeling and did not irritate my eyes. But only great for very light makeup, anything more and you need something stronger.

I have been using this product for a few months now. I liked the fact that it was a gentle product as my eyes can get irritated easily. i have no issue with the scent or feel of the product. I apply a generous amount to a cotton pad and then wipe off eye makeup with that. I find that although it removes my makeup at night, there must still be a trace remaining as in the mornings I still have under eye smudges.

OK but not Great
This product removes makeup generally well untill it gets to the eye area.
I found that it removes mascara well but when it comes to eyeliner (either kohl, crayon or gel) it leaves me with panda eyes.
I need to rub vigorously to get the majority of it off but it still leaves some residue, I have to use some eye cream to remove whatever is left of my eyeliner.
I like the fact that its not greasy and doesnt leave your skin/eyes feeling stringent.

i really like this product. i dont exactly go easy on the mascara and this manages to take it all off easily with no vigorous scrubbing.
don't need a lot of it, and leaves no oily residue behind either.
