While this cleanser does take a little work to remove waterproof mascara, it works a lot better than anything else I've tried. I did not have to tug and rub half as much as I usually do! Hoping that this means my lashes will take less of a beating and actually grow! The only issue I have with this product is that the container it comes in is sort of a bottle inside an outer shell, and they broke apart now and I have to make sure to hold them together when I take the cap off to use it. Other than that, it's wonderful! No irritation or redness, either, like other things I've used. Happy girl!
