I love experimenting and playing with makeup. I don't, however, love the makeup removal challenges mascara and dramatic eyes present when I go to clean my face. Having worked in one of those big beauty chain stores I shall not name, I have been exposed to numerous eye-makeup removers, none of which left me wow'd, especially when factoring in how much they cost. Neutrogena's Oil-Free Liquid Makeup Remover rivals top shelf brands efficacy at one fifth the price. As long as you are not a consumer obsessed with ONLY buying naturally derived, sustainable, fair trade, organic ingredients cultivated by self-aware shamans and conspiracy theorists empowered through a life dedicated to creating your morally superior product, then this product deserves a second look. Prior to use, gently shaking the bottle helps to mix the distinguishable, non-miscible layers of the product together. This helps in enhancing application, distribution and product effectiveness. While Neutrogena uses lighter, less viscous synthetic silicones, including Cyclohexasiloxane and Cyclopentasiloxane, to replace heavier oil components commonly found in traditional eye makeup removers, the silicones still impart that slippery/lubricated feeling characteristic of many makeup removers. Neutrogena's use of synthetic silicones in their eye makeup remover however, doesn't leave behind that lingering, greasy residue on the skin, common to oil-based eye makeup removal products. While I appreciate this light and conditioned feeling I get after using Neutrogena's Eye Makeup Remover, the thinner viscosity of the silicones, compared to oils, also result in me having to use a larger amount of the product, applied for a longer amount of time, in order to achieve complete makeup removal. This aspect is the main factor in giving the product a 4/5. Therefore, I feel in assessing whether or not this is a good eye makeup remover for you, it helps to identify the products generally used in your daily makeup routine. For the average makeup wearer, this product is perfectly cromulent and I would recommend it without hesitation. For those of you, who favor a more generous application of long-lasting or waterproof makeup varieties, a heavier/more substantial eye makeup remover may be a more appropriate way to go. Hope these insights help in assessing if Neutrogena's Eye Makeup Remover is the right one for you!
