Instant Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
Not "Instant' at all!!
I have been using Mary Kay Eye Makeup Remover for years!! I've been using bareMinerals make-up for only 6 months. About a month ago I thought I would give this a try. I was very disappointed! I thought it was just me until I read the other reviews. First of all the bottle is hard to squeeze. Second, it takes AT LEAST 3 times to get my make-up off. THEN it is smeared under my eyes. I have tried to wash my face first and get some of my make-up off that way. It did not help. Not good results for this cost. I will stick to my trusted Mary Kay Eye Make-Up Remover!
I miss Bare Eyes original
I'm not opposed to change, and I like most of the Bare Escentuals products (I use everything from primers, shadows, bisque, brow color, lipsticks and glosses, cleansers, lotions and tons of other products I didn't mention. My entire beauty regimen is Bare Escentuals - so I was willing to give this new eye makeup remover a chance.
I was so disappointed the first time I tried it. It smeared my makeup everywhere and was difficult to remove. But I didn't give up! I tried it everyday for a week straight, and everyday I had the same results: greasy smears. I was having to remove eye makeup from areas around my eyes that never had makeup to begin with!
Not only did I have to use more cotton balls to remove my eye makeup, but I also had to use the Makeup Remover Wipes to clean up the smudges and makeup residue left on my face by the eye makeup remover.
I'm a devoted Bare Minerals fan, but I'm just not happy with this product. I don't want to look to another brand for something that really works, but the makeup remover wipes take too long, and the travel swabs are too tedious for daily use.
Leslie...if you'll bring back the old formula (keep the new one, too, for those who like it!), I will be a lifelong eye makeup remover customer! Please?!
Perfect for keeping eye area hydrated!
I bought this about a year ago and have been using it religiously ever since (and from the time period, you can tell that a little bit of remover goes a long way!) This is an oil-based remover, so your undereye area won't dry out the way some makeup removers cause it to. It's also great for contact lens wearers--in the past, when I had bought cheap drugstore brand removers, if I happen to get some in my eye, I had serious PAIN! Not with this. It's also great for touch-ups, if you happen to smudge your eye makeup. Simply wet a Q tip and remove the smudges. Awesome product. I will buy again.
Great for removing eyeshadow, also nicely moisturizing. However, it does not remove mascara well. I swipe my lashes several times, turn the pad over, and wipe some more. I still have raccoon eyes in the morning.
Eye Makeup Remover
I do not like the new eye makeup remover. It's oily and gets in may eyes and burns a little. I like the original formula much better. It removed the eye makeup perfectly. Why change an all ready good thing. Please bring back the original remover.
Great for sensitive eyes and contact lenses
I absolutely love this product! I wear contact lenses and have sensitive skin, so I am always concerned about protecting my eyes from filmy, oily products. Being over 40, I am also concerned about puffiness and wrinkles in the delicate eye area. This makeup remover is gentle yet thorough, allowing me to wipe away my waterproof mascara in seconds, with no oily residue left behind to irritate my eyes or my contacts. It feels light to the touch and yet it removes every trace of my eye and eyebrow makeup, without pulling on my skin or using harsh, irritating chemicals. I highly recommend this makeup remover.
I was hopeful that for the price this remover would be better than what i can get at my local drug store, but it was not to be. It's equally as oily and leaves residue, which at the moment is making my eyesight blurry. You can spend a third of the cost of this with drugstore brands and have the same result. Very disappointing.
Clean Eyes in One Swipe
I haven't used Bare Eyes, just this one from the BE product line, but I can say that this is a very gentle and effective eye makeup remover. I used to have to use a couple of cotton pads with my old department store brand to get all my eye makeup off, but with BE I get everything off in one go, which is great because I don't want to feel like I'm scrubbing my eyes. I LOVE my eye makeup. I use eye primer, lash primer, mascara, liner on upper and bottom, brow powder, three shades of eye shadow, and under the eye, I use a bit of concealer, and this stuff gets it ALL off in one go... to me, that's amazing :)
I was hesitant to try this because I thought the BE cleanser worked fine for removing my eye makeup, but I got it as gift so I reluctantly tried it out. I've been using it for about three weeks now and I love it! At first I wasn't so sure because I felt that I had to wipe my eyes multiple times to remove everything. I decided to make sure that I shake it well and after soaking the pad I let it sit on my eye for a few seconds and then it all comes right off. I have noticed that the skin around my eyes are much smoother and my skin just looks better. I have used other makeup removers and this is by far my favorite. No irritation, no stinging, and no residue. Just silky skin. The only thing I don't care for is the dispenser. It is a pain to have to shake it so much to get the liquid out, but I guess that helps you from using to much.
This product just doesn't work as well as Bare Eyes. It also lacks the moisturizing properties I need. It's also more expensive! I am desperately seeking another brand that makes a formula like bare eyes. I've bought several that look the same but they don't perform the same. Really disappointed in this change.
