I’m confused...I applied half a dime sized amount to a cotton pad and let sit on my closed eye lid for about a minute. When I wiped, it took off the single coat of eyeshadow but didn’t even put a dent in my mascara. It took 4 cotton pads and about a quarter sized amount per eye to get to a raccoon look. Didn’t remove my minimal makeup at all. Actually warm water and my hands work better than this. Don’t get what I’m doing wrong. I don’t wear a lot of makeup in the summer so it only had to remove a single application of a pale shimmer eyeshadow and one coat of regular Bad Gal mascara. How in the world does this stuff work!?! So confused. Didn’t get a sample, bought the full size cause it looked well reviewed but apparently that was a mistake. Ugh.
