Review Overview

Remove Eye Makeup Remover is a simple, water- and silicone-based makeup remover, but it works beautifully to remove all types of long-wearing makeup and wins extra points for being fragrance-free and including no extraneous ingredients except a tiny amount of coloring agent. The small amount of benzoyl alcohol is part of the preservative system and should not pose a risk of irritation. However, like all preservatives, this may cause minor stinging if you get the product in the eye itself.

Claims

Fresh-as-water eye makeup remover gently whisks away even waterproof eye makeup.

Ingredients

Water, Cyclotetrasiloxane, Isohexadecane, Hexylene Glycol, Poloxamer 184, Sodium Chloride, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzalkonium Chloride, Ext. Violet 2

Brand Overview

Sonia Kashuk At-A-Glance

Strengths: Affordable and widely available (though exclusive to Target stores); good makeup remover; the makeup is still the star attraction, with impressive options for foundation, powder, blush, lip color, eyeliner and especially makeup brushes.

Weaknesses: The concealers, eye pencil, and brow shapers are a letdown; the makeup palettes may seem convenient, but several of the included products perform poorly.

Perhaps best known for her years of work with supermodel Cindy Crawford, makeup artist Sonia Kashuk's well-chosen selection of makeup has been available exclusively at Target stores since the mid-1990s.

 Kashuk's brushes have been a strong point, and now that they've been redone they're better than ever, and still affordable. This is definitely a makeup collection worth visiting, and you'll find some premium options among Kashuk's powder foundation, regular powders, and blush. Several other products, from foundation to lipsticks, are also worthy of attention, though this is not a line that caters to darker skin tones. Ironically, it's the latest cosmetic products that met with the most critical reviews, largely due to poor execution or their gimmicky nature.

Note: Sonia Kashuk products are also available at select Bloomingdales locations in New York and California. The company also maintains freestanding stores in New York and New Jersey.

Mixed feelings on it

So I was looking for a cruelty free, drugstore/inexpensive eye makeup remover that can take off my long wearing gel and not irritate my eyes. I used and loved the Mary Kay version but they now animal test to sell in china. It seems to have problems removing my non waterproof mascara but does well with the liner. I wake up with some raccoon effect or flakes of mascara under my eyes and more recently noticing more eye lid irritation especially near my lash line. Not a repurchase for me.
