Ratings & Reviews

I would buy this product again and again!


This is by far the best eye makeup remover I have ever used! Quickly removes all traces of makeup with no eye irritation. Thanks Paula's Choice another amazing product!

Best ever mascara remover


I bought this on sale hoping it might be good; I have severe allergies and my choices are limited. I was totally blown away by the fact that its not just gentle, it also removes ALL of my eye makeup and mascara. I have fair eyelashes and layer the mascara for evening wear. After using this nothing was left for the shower - or on the pillow in the morning. Thanks for a great, hypoallergenic product.

I love this!


I got this for free as a promotion with a previous Paula's Choice order and I'm so glad I did! It removes all my eye makeup and doesn't irritate my skin or make my contact lenses blurry and oily. I'm almost out of the free one and back for another! I used to use the Dior makeup remover which is just as effective but costs twice as much! Buying this again is a no brainer.

This takes everything off and is so gentle on my skin. I use this as my first step every night on a cotton pad all over my face then follow with my cleanser in the shower. Doesn't irritate or bother my sensitive acne prone skin. Paula should also make this formula in ready to go makeup wipes. I would buy them for the convenience. Love this product!!




Love It!


Very effective makeup remover! It is gentle but works on even waterproof mascara very easily. It will replace my very expensive department store eye makeup remover. Happy Customer here!

Removes foundation


I have a popular gentle face wash that I'm trying to use up that removes almost no makeup. I use Paula's makeup remover first. Then I wash with the face wash. I follow with Resist toner and 2% BHA. Pores cleaned and size reduced!

Excellent Makeup Remover


This makeup remover is excellent. It removes all my foundation and powder easily, and there are no feelings of burning, itching or redness after. I also have fairly acne-prone skin, but this remover has not caused any issues at all. Additionally, it is very effective because just a small amount removes quite a lot.

HOLY GRAIL! Best Eye Makeup Remover- Beats High End!


This is amazing! It's insane to think how hard it is to find an effective, fragrance free, non irritating formula! I was using Lancome's Bi-Facil remover, but it was too expensive to repurchase. Moved to the Garnier Micellar Water, but the pH was way too high and stripped by skin. This does not irritate or feel like anything while using. The pH is perfect and something I aways stress over. This is seriously impressive! I'll never look for another eye makeup remover!




best eye make uo remonver


I have never written a review before but for this product i just had to. This is by far the best make up remover. I have never found a make up remover that does not irritate my eyes apart from this one. Even when it gets into the eyes it does not burn or sting like other make u removers. and it removes matte liquid lipsticks with just one swipe and leaves my lips feeling soft. I love other skin care products from this company as well.

Works great


This is an effective liquid makeup remover, not much more to it. It doesn't sting my eyes and I don't have to scrub with a cotton round. I do follow up with a lotion or oil cleanser that I take over my eyes, but there isn't a super oily residue.
