I used to use just plain baby oil or another oil to remove makeup but this removes eye makeup quickly and easily. If you suffer from "gunky eyelash" for not removing all your eye makeup before reapplication, this is an excellent choice for you. I have tried several Klorane products and I've been pleased with all of them. I prefer the makeup remover water to this one, as the water allows for removal of the complete face while this is exclusively for the eyes. It does remove makeup well -even thick, heavy cosmetics fast. Highly recommended!
