Ratings & Reviews



I received this as a free sample and I love it! I never would have purchased it otherwise but I'll be purchasing it from now on. It completely dissolves makeup with no greasy residue. I have extremely sensitive eyes that tear up and get irritated - not with this. It doesn't bother my eyes at all and I barely have to apply any pressure for the makeup to come off. This is hands-down the BEST makeup remover I have ever used (and yes, I have also used Mary Kay.)




Got it for free but would buy it again in a heartbeat!


I received this as a bonus with my order and I am so glad I did. I probably wouldn't have purchased it otherwise as I have tried other makeup removers similar to this that weren't effective and left me feeling greasy or were so harsh they dried my skin out. This one takes even the most stubborn eye makeup off easily and doesn't leave any residue. I wear contacts and have to be careful with my eyes and this remover hasn't irritated them at all. I start my cleansing routine by taking off my eye makeup with this, then I use my PC cleanser to wash the rest of my face. The combo of these products gets all my makeup off without over drying.

Love this!


For years I've been a huge fan of Mary Kay's Makeup Remover to remove eye-makeup, I had tried others and kept going back. Then I found PC's version and love it even more! It's just as effective (maybe even more so) and it does not feel greasy. I wear contacts, so sometimes the MK product would feel a bit thick around the eyes. Paula's Choice feels light and does not require heavy pressure to remove makeup. Will definitely be re-ordering more!

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.


Rochester, NY




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.
