This silicone-enhanced makeup remover does an OK job removing most types of eye makeup, but it contains a cleansing agent typically not used in eye makeup removers because, at least for the eye area, it isn’t all that gentle. Add to this the inclusion of fragrance and fragrance ingredients like linalool and this becomes even less desirable despite the attractive price. For better results from gentler formulas, please check out the eye makeup removers from Neutrogena, Almay, or Paula’s Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover .

Wet 'n' Wild At-A-Glance
Strengths: Inexpensive, good tinted moisturizer with sunscreen; some attractive bronzing powders; mostly good eyeshadow and lipstick options.
Weaknesses: Unimpressive concealers; large assortment of average to poor eyelining products; the mascaras do little to impress; some lip products suffer from the inclusion of irritants; the makeup brushes.
Wet 'n' Wild is one of the few cosmetics companies around that prides itself on being extraordinarily cheap, although the prices have increased across the board since we last revisited this brand. But don't let its hokey name and pre-teen marketing tactics deter you, because there are some great options available, and the packaging has improved in almost every category. The best-performing products will seem like steals, while the less impressive to horrible products will quickly have you thinking, "you get what you pay for." It is not very often that a line offers such a procession of clear-cut winners and dismal losers, but once you know what to focus on, you won't get soaked by Wet 'n' Wild. This line is available in most major drugstores across the country, and, like most drugstore lines, does not offer testers. Interestingly, the selection of Wet 'n' Wild in Canadian drugstores tends to be better than what U.S. shoppers will find.

This product is horrible. I am not typically over sensitive, but this product burnt my eyes. I have used many eye make up removers and by far this is the worst. Baby oil is even better than this stuff.
This is one of those terrible products that shouldn't even be on the market. Rating it "average" in a brand review is misleading. It is one the harshest eye-makeup removers I have ever used. It stung my eyelids and burned when some of the liquid got into my eye.
Because it is so harsh, I was afraid to get close my lashes for fear of hurting my eyes. Therefore I never really got off all my eye makeup in spite of how strong the product was. Awful!!!!
