Just as waterproof mascara is an indispensable part of my regular makeup routine, taking off all that eye makeup requires some serious makeup remover. Since finishing up my last bottle of Neutrogena, I popped open something new this time from Almay, a brand which has built it’s reputation on gentle, hypoallergenic products for the face.
Product: Longwear & Waterproof Gentle Eye Makeup Remover*
Size: 118ml / 4 oz.
Detail: Fragrance free, hypo-allergenic, bi-phase product
Availability: Drugstores nationwide
Would I (re)purchase: No.
Like most waterproof targeted eye makeup removers, Almay’s version is a bi-phase product consisting of two different liquids that must been mixed together in order to activate its cleansing properties. Fragrance free and with a lightweight consistency, it has a simple hole opening which makes it easy to pour out the product onto a cotton round.
THE FINAL VERDICT
If you’re already an Almay fan who loves their hypoallergenic and fragrance free products, this does get the job done. However for someone who wears heavier eye makeup, there are other products in the drugstore which work more efficiently overall so while I will continue to finish up the bottle, it’s not something I would pick up again.
