Review Overview

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

Claims

These convenient oil-free pads take off all your eye makeup in one easy step with no mess. Gentle blend of aloe, cucumber and green tea to nourish delicate skin. Your lashes will feel soft and beautifully conditioned.

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.

Convenient Eye Makeup Remover

I wear a lot of makeup & I've used these Almay oil-free pads morning & night on my eyes for probably 20 years! I like that I don't need to deal with a cotton pad & a liquid. Also makes them great for travel! However, I think they've changed the formula though because they don't seem to work as well as they used to & I have to use the (oily) moisturizing ones more frequently. I cut them in half to make the jar last longer. If you don't wear heavy/waterproof eye makeup one half could be enough.

I use these all the time and so do my teenage daughters

I really like this product. I have been using it for years. I don't wear a lot of eye makeup anymore, but when I do I know that this stuff will get it all off quickly and easily. My teenage daughters, who wear eye makeup every day, use it as well. I will admit, sometimes we also use the knockoff CVS brand, which is very similar. I think it's a good value for the money, especially when it's on sale.
