One of my all time favorite eye makeup remover is by Bobbi Brown (reviewed here) however because of the hefty price tag, I’m always looking for more affordable alternatives. I usually turn to my favorite drugstore eye makeup remover by Neutrogena (reviewed here) but recently want to expand my options. Thus, enters this Almay Longwear & Waterproof Gentle eye makeup remover.

It has two layers, very similar to all the other makeup remover that I love. However the performance of this makeup remover simply does not live up to my expectations. It’s really good for removing lighter eye makeup, such as eye shadows and certain eyeliners. However, my biggest problem with this makeup remover is that it just doesn’t remover waterproof mascara or liquid eyeliners. I find myself rubbing and tugging a little too hard on my eyelids just to get some of the makeup off of my eyes. This is a problem because I don’t want to develop premature wrinkles.

Another thing that really bothers me about this makeup remover is that my eyes are really sensitive to the liquid. I don’t know why, but my eyes always sting after using this. Almay Longwear & Waterproof Gentle Eye Makeup Remover is indeed too gentle for my liking. If you don’t wear a lot of waterproof makeup, then this remover will work just fine for you.

    The two layer reminds me of Lancome eye makeup remover. I don’t wear much eye makeup so probably will never try this out.

    • Yes, the layer is very similar to the Lancome one but it’s definitely not as good!
