I don’t know about you, but I like having an occasion to get dolled up and spend extra time and effort into my hair and makeup. Whether it’s a dinner date or a party, I think it’s fun to have that “me” time where I get to play with colors and false lashes. This usually involves black gel liner, coats of mascara, etc. The less-fun part is when I get home and have to remove everything. I actually kind of dread it. But, with the Almay® Oil Free Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads I have less mess and less stress. There’s no need to shake bottles and get out cotton balls. Everything I need to get my eyes clean and ready to rest is one twist-of-the-cap away. Upon opening the 80 count jar I noticed a faint floral smell. Though the formula is actually fragrance-free, I think it’s probably the aloe and green tea ingredients giving off the slightest scent. Also note the size of the pad. It will cover an entire eye on a normal-to-medium makeup day. However, for those nights when I’ve got false lashes, gel liner and possibly very dark shadows, I need a little extra oomph – and need to use a second pad. For everyday makeup one pad for each eye does the trick. I use one side to start the job and the other side to clean up what’s left. I don’t feel any burning or stinging either. That’s important to me because I’ve had some seriously bad experiences with eye makeup removers that have left me hesitant to try new brands. Almay is known for their hypoallergenic product formulations and this remover happens to be ophthalmologist tested. The other thing I really like is that they are oil-free. This means no greasy feeling left behind on my skin like most of the heavier-duty removers on the market, which normally adds to the lingering burning sensation I’ve experienced in them. Not so here. It feels cooling on the eye area due to the cucumber and aloe and leaves my eyes feeling quite refreshed. Below is a look at how it performed for a regular makeup use: Again, I used one pad per eye and it removed almost every trace of makeup. Overall I am really impressed with the Almay® Oil Free Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads. They make late nights easier, don’t burn or sting my eyes and remove makeup as expected.
