As well as finding the low price point a positive thing (I think I paid around $6 for this on sale) I liked the sturdy but lightweight bottle, and the opening looked like a winner. Once I used it, however, these positive features couldn't distract me from the fact that this product does not perform well for me.
I tend to wear quite a bit of eye makeup on a day to day basis, eyeshadow is one of my favourite things to apply and loads of mascara is always a must. This barely takes off the lightest of eyeshadow, and trying to remove mascara with it is the most frustrating task I've undertaken in quite a while. I tried removing makeup from one of my eyes with a cotton pad soaked in water, and to be honest there wasn't much difference in the results. The Garnier remover also left my eyes feeling tight and dry, and I couldn't go without my eye cream immediately after using it.

I would love to see some comments below on which eye makeup removers you like, and which you dislike! I am a fan of the Face of Australia remover, and the Clinique Take The Day Off remover. Dual-phase trend, I suspect. I know Garnier also make a dual-phase remover as well, and I am going to give it a go and hope that it is better than this one.
If you have had a better experience with this remover, do let me know below!
*I paid for this with my own money. Honesty, always.
