PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover combines make-up removal with softness. Its refreshing and gentle formula is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Enriched with Pro-Vitamin, this gentle Eye Make-Up Remover, gently, yet thoroughly, removes eye make-up.

FOR BEST RESULT
1) Apply eye makeup remover to a cotton ball or pad making sure to get it pretty wet. You don’t want to have to rub your eyes.
2) Working with only one eye at a time, close your eye and apply one of the cotton balls to your lid and lashes. Let it sit for a minute so it can work its way through the layers of makeup.
3) After letting it sit for a minute, gently swipe your eye in a downward motion making sure not to get makeup in the eye.
4) Open your eye and remove any eye makeup left under the lashes and in the crease of your eye.
5) Repeat with your second eye and spot remove as needed.

WHY YOU SHOULD SKIP THIS PRODUCT
I had purchased this in Hong Kong prior to buying the Biore Make-Up Remover that I love so much. There is no other way for me to say this, but this product is so gentle that it doesn’t work. It’s suppose remove light make-up, but honestly, it didn’t even take off my eye shadow. Plus, with just one coat of mascara, you would have to rub really hard to get rid of it all. I hate that because the skin around your eyes are so sensative and this would really hurt your eyes. This remover would definitely not work on water-proof products, so I didn’t even try. Though this product smelled really nice, but it felt like water and it acted just like it as well. Please save your money and do not purchase this item.

RATING
Product (0/5) -For the reasons stated above.
Cost (5/5) – It was really affordable, only $4 CAD.
Ease of Use (2/5) – Have to rub really hard to get rid of all the make-up.
Packaging (3/5) – Nothing special about it.

    this product is really crap. thanks for pointing it out again!

  • Thanks for the review. I won`t buy this product because I don`t want to waste my money…

  • great review! I find L’oreal products never work for me. thanks for the review! i’ll definitely skip pass the this one no matter what the price it is. :)

  • Ouch.. this product sounds boo boo. I’m not even going to consider getting this item. Thanks for your honesty. The price seems nice though but the fact that it doesn’t work at all sucks.

    Sorry I haven’t replied to your email. I’m slow. I’ll probably email you back later tonight if not I’ll email you tomorrow [at work] *HEEHEE.
    But the amount you stated works for me. I’ve been looking for the glosses already but not much luck. I’ll check out places by my work.

  • hmmm….
    this is my favorite make-up remover..
    i winder why it didn’t work for me. i think this even compares with Lancome’s Bi-Facil. I compared the 2 & the only difference between them are the price.

    This takes away the most stubborn mascara that i have..waterproof ones,of course!

  • that’s weird since it worked like a charm for me !! However I tend to wash my face before using make-up remover (weird habit of mine)

  • cute blog!!!!

  • ewww that’s lame :( the packaging is pretty cute to me though. up & up eye makeup remover is great! it’s so cheap at target and removes everything :)
