Review Overview

Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Pads consist of a mineral oil-based, fragrance-free solution steeped in pads. They work well to remove makeup, though can leave a greasy residue if not rinsed.

Claims

These convenient moisturizing pads take off all your eye makeup in one easy step with no mess. Removes long-wearing eye makeup and even waterproof mascara without irritation. Gentle blend of aloe, cucumber, and green tea nourishes skin as it gently lifts away makeup. Your lashes will feel soft and beautifully conditioned.

Ingredients

Mineral Oil, Propylene Glycol, Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Camellia Sensis Leaf Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben

Brand Overview

Almay At-A-Glance

Strengths: An excellent assortment of mascaras; several exceptional foundation options to choose from; a phenomenal liquid eyeliner; a selection of good makeup removers.

Weaknesses: Some of the Intense i-color products do the exact opposite of enhancing eye color; mediocre blushes; “Smart Shade” products don’t automatically adapt to skin’s color as claimed.

Long a standby for those with sensitive skin seeking hypoallergenic products (though that term is unregulated and can be applied to any product, regardless of ingredients), Almay continues to refine its comprehensive makeup line. In early 2006 the company repackaged its old favorites, and also relaunched several new makeup items. Everything now has a sleek new look and color-coded packaging. We admit, the makeover is effective, not just product-wise but visually too.

Shopping this drugstore line is now much easier because of the clearly defined product and color family groupings. Lamentably, testers and trial sizes of the makeup are still scarce regardless of where you shop. Almay has always been a reliable line for foundations, powder, and mascara. Within its current lineup you'll find that remains true. Their foundations are better than ever, and still offer full, broad-spectrum sun protection and a mostly neutral palette. We also found their concealers and mascaras have improved, as have the pencil options. When it comes to shopping for makeup staples with state-of-the-art formulas, Almay has many winners, and some innovative surprises that its competitors would be wise to learn from.

Oily leftovers

I use super strength water proof mascara and this gets rid of most of it after regular face washing. However, this leaves a lot of oil leftover and it is not easy to remove with a quick rinse. Will definitely not buy again
