This is an excellent, soothing, fragrance-free eye-makeup remover suitable for all skin types, including sensitive or rosacea-affected skin. The amount of mineral oil leaves a slight residue, but you can get around that by cleansing after you remove your eye makeup. Consider this one of Nivea’s sleeper products, and one of the better inexpensive makeup removers at the drugstore.
Removes waterproof and long-lasting make-up. Ophthalmologically and dermatologically tested. Suitable for contact lens wearers.

Nivea is a globally known brand owned by Beiersdorf, the same company behind department-store brand La Prairie and drugstore mainstay Eucerin. Among those three brands, Nivea's product selection is the weakest (which isn't saying much, because none of these lines have much of anything to offer skin). For Nivea, uninspired formulas abound, presenting limited options unless you have normal to dry skin, and even those have exceptionally inelegant formulas. The enduring popularity of this line has more to do with advertising and perhaps tradition (it has been around a long time) than with what any researcher would consider state-of-the-art.
In mid-2010 Nivea re-launched most of their Visage (facial care) products on the web site drugstore.com. These products present a few well formulated, inexpensive options that are worth your attention.For more information about Nivea, owned by Beiersdorf, call (800) 227-4703 or visit www.nivea.com.
