Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads Review
How to Use: Smooth pad over closed lid and lashes
How It Works: ALMAY oil-free gentle eye makeup remover pads are part of Almay, the number 1 eye makeup remover brand in America, which offers a full line of makeup removers to meet the needs of your skin and eyes. Gentler than soap and water, Almay Makeup Removers condition skin while removing makeup without irritation.
Initial Impressions: Wow, these are greasy. I had read they were but I don't think I was fully prepared. They are definitely not oil-free, as the description above says! However, this did seem to get off all my eyemakeup, especially if I hold it over my eye for about 10 seconds, and then pull away. I have to go over a couple of times, but overall, other than the greasy-ness, I like them!
Final Impressions: These are really, really good at getting off all my eyemakeup, even the waterproof kind. You do have to hold them over your eyes for a few seconds, but it does come off! However, these leave my eyes feeling like a grease factory, and sometimes make my vision a little blurry. Also, it leaves a greasy residue. So that's no bueno if I have extra eye makeup on in the morning, or want to do a fall-out cleanup before putting on my foundation.
I probably won't be buying these again, based on that fact. There are other eye makeup remover pads out there that probably work just as well, but don't leave behind that greasy residue. Next time I'll check to make sure they're oil free!
You can purchase this product at your local Ulta (like I did), or purchase it from amazon here.
