Honest reviews

Stings a bit, but very effective

I ordered this since I was looking for a natural eye makeup remover, and it had gotten good reviews. It’s very effective at removing even stubborn, waterproof mascara, but it does sting my eyes a bit, which I was surprised about.It doesn’t leave them red or irritated, so I might keep using it, but it’s something to just know about in case you have sensitive eyes.Also, someone had recommended taking off the top each time you use this, and I agree that it makes it much easier to dispense onto a cotton pad.It’s a bit goopy, but it wipes off clean, and I’m not left with any oily residue on my skin.I’ll probably use up the bottle, but may try something else in the future since I’m not thrilled with how it stings for a minute or so each time I use it.UPDATE ON 1-25-13: I ended up buying a different eye makeup remover since this one just stings my eyes each time I use it. The greasiness of it also started to bother me. I originally gave it four stars, but bumped my review down to two stars. I don’t recommend this one.

Magic in a bottle

I have switched my entire skin care line to Alba but since their shipping fees on their website are high I always try to get them somewhere with more reasonable prices. I have not used this eye make up remover before. I have had generic drug store brands which would leave my eye area very oily and greasy but since they were doing a good job, I’d be OK with washing my eyes with soap afterwards. Well after trying other products buy Alba and falling in love with them I decided to give a shot to this eye makeup remover. I absolutely LOVE it! It’s SO gentle on the eye area yet it instantly removes all the makeup without you having to go back and forth multiple times clean everything up. No oil and grease residue afterwards, I can literally just clean off the makeup and go without washing my eyes afterwards. I will definitely continue using this eye makeup remover as long as it remains as awesome as it is right now

Works well..

Used to use a creamy eye make-up remover but it just wasn’t cutting it. This works well (yes, you do need to shake it first, well, before you use it). I prefer shaking it, twisting the lid off, then holding a cotton ball to the bottle opening, because it’s too liquidy to just neatly pour a dab on a cotton ball using the little spout (literally poured out, hit the cotton ball, bounced off, and went all over my sink the first time I used). Product did leak a little when shipped, even though it was thoroughly taped up by the shipper, still leaked. This Alba’s fault, put one of the peal off tabs on the opening of the bottle or something! But, again, good product, wiped my water-proof mascara off likety split.

A for Alba

I love this product! Eyeliner and eyeshadow, be gone! It has a nice consistency. Plus, I like that the company is eco-friendly. The only thing I would change is the top. I prefer twist offs instead of this top (I haven’t the slightest idea what you call it!) so that I can dip my cotton swab in instead of pouring the product out. I don’t want to waste a drop!

Thought it would be more gentle

I have ALWAYS used clinique eye makeup remover – since I am using all other alba products for my face cleansing needs I thought I would switch to this. It works well, takes off all of my eye makeup in a few swipes, but lt leaves my eyes a little red which the clinique never did. If you are ultra sensitive, this might not be for you. Also, just a suggestion its easier to take the whole top off and soak a cotton ball for makeup removal than trying to use the little pop open spout…

Less Expensive & it Works

I just saw a documentary film about all the money that is raised for breast cancer research and where does it all go??? In the doc, they sighted a website that tells you how toxic products really are. I am going as natural as possible and found this product to be just as effective as the department store brands, along with being a lot less expensive. I highly recomment it.
