Overview

Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover Liquid works well to remove most eye makeup. The lack of silicone or oils makes it a poor choice to remove waterproof mascara.

Claims

If you wear waterproof eye makeup and have a hard time finding a remover that won’t irritate your eyes, than this is the remover for you. This gentle oil-free liquid removes all traces of any kind of makeup without irritation. Gentle blend of aloe, cucumber and green tea nourishes skin as it gently lifts away makeup.

Ingredients

Water, Poloxamer 184, Butylene Glycol, Disodium Lauroamphodiacetate, Sodium Trideceth Sulfate, Hexylene Glycol, Cucumis Sativus Fruit Extract (Cucumber), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Citric Acid, Benzyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol

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.

Made my eyes sting!

I bought this to use with waterproof mascara and it is ineffective at best. Also, it made my eyes sting and water terribly for quite a while after use. I'm returning it!

I don't typically have problems with eye makeup removers, but this one burns my eyes for whatever reason.
