WHY I LIKE THIS PRODUCT
Well, this product does its job. It’s really gentle on the eyes but this stuff will get off stubborn eye makeup. It is also pretty cheap because it is drugstore so the price will only range between $5-$7 CAD. However, there are two main issues that I have with this eye makeup remover. First of all, it leaves an oily residue behind, thus, it’s not really “oil-free”. This is not something that bothers me that much because I always wash my entire face after removing my eye makeup anyways. So the residue will just come right off. But I can understand how it can be a really annoying downside for some people.

The second problem that I have with this product is the packaging. I don’t like the twist cap and the opening is really big. I tend to spill this product, a LOT, when I’m pouring it into a cotton pad. Unlike the Biore Eye & Lips Makeup Remover, the packaging of this makeup remover needs to be remodeled. I’m still loving the Biore one a lot more and I think I would only re-purchase this remover if I can’t get a hold of the Biore one in Canada because that specific remover is made in Japan. This means that getting it in Canada will not only be hard, but expensive as well.

RATING
Product (3/5) – Does its job, but also leaves some residue.
Cost (5/5)
Ease of Use (3/5) – Twist cap is really inconvenient.
Packaging (3/5) – Large opening can cause the product to spill easily.
