    "A must-have in every girl's makeup kit IMO. The Neutrogena makeup remover is honestly the best makeup remover I've ever used because it doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes. I've tried countless products before including expensive brands like La Mer and Lancome and they were just too harsh. This product is God-given because my eyes don't get red even with lots of mascara on. Just soak a cotton pad with it, let it sit for a few seconds then wipe it off. And it only costs $8! ❤️"

    "I've always been a fan of Clinique and this makeup remover is no exception. Even with a generous amount of mascara on, this product can remove it effortlessly. Even 24hr stay liquid lipsticks don't stand a chance. I have extremely oily skin BTW but this product doesn't make me break out. Love love LOVE Clinique! 😍"

    "A dupe for Lancome's Bi-Facil, which is 3 times the price. Removes all eye makeup easily without making them sting, red or puffy. No need for excessive tugging and rubbing. Highly recommended! "

    "This cleansing water keeps my skin feeling hydrated. I've tried it a few times as a makeup remover and it did a good job. It takes a little longer to remove the mascara but continuous rubbing does the trick. Anyway, I prefer this over oil-based makeup removers because it's gentle and leaves my skin feeling fresh and thoroughly clean. "

    "It stings my eyelids a little whenever I use it but not so much that it's cumbersome. Other than that it's a pretty good makeup remover. "

    "A little goes a long way. Unlike other makeup cleansers where you need to completely soak the cotton pads, the Garnier makeup remover does the trick with just a small amount. It's especially good in removing eyeliner and I do tend to apply A LOT. Plus, it's quite cheap! "

    "Meh. It's called "Simple" eye makeup remover - at least they got the name right. I always hve to use a lot of poduct in order to remove eyeliner and mascara that it starts to sting my eyes. It removes the shadows, but then so does soap. Not impressed. Wont be buying this brand again. 😒"
