Most Helpful Positive Review I think I've found the winner!
I was aimlessly walking around Ulta like we all do in search for the right eye make-up remover. I am lazy and dont wash my mascara or eyeliner off at night and am left with two black eyes every morning. Washing my face is simple but the pesky racoon eyes are always left lingering. I have used a more commercial brand for years and wasn't having it anymore, it felt greasy. This product, you have to shake well before applying to cotton ball but really need the tiniest amount! I wiped both eyes once and everything was gone, no rubbing required. Also, I didn't need to follow up with a towel to get the grease off because there was none. Also it's just a pretty bottle, makes the face regime so mature ;)

Took longer to remove vs. other brands.
Every time I've used this product I've gotten stinging from the product. So I tried different mascaras/eyeshadows/eyeliners (thinking that maybe it was the brand or maybe I just had a lot of product on and it was getting into my eye), also tried different ways to apply it to eyes-maybe I was just using too much remover on my cotton ball- and every time I've used the remover it still stung. Very uncomfortable. I've used this style of remover numerous times. bottle says its soothing, no its not.
Used this product on my eyes without even wearing eye makeup and it was still uncomfortable.
I love to use products that are not animal tested so I've tried to make this product fit into my routine. Unfortunately it does not :(

I wear heavy eyeliner and this has been perfect! My skin is sensitive and I scents are too strong for be but this eye make up remover has been great! It removes everything gently, no residue left and no strong scents.
LOVE, but wish it had less of an open top, it waste product
Kcrow523 from Portland, ME
Loved this but if they could put a cover over the top with a hole in it, it would be better. It wastes more product and can be messy. But it's butter soft and gives my eyes no irritation!
Chico's mom from Port Henry, NY
I have bought.this product several times, and I am always happy with the results. The remover is gentle on the lids and as long as I shake the bottle to combine the liquids it not greasy at all. My waterproof mascara comes off very easily with no rubbing or dragging.
My new favorite!

I've used pre-moistened eye makeup remover pads for over 12 years and thought I was perfectly happy with my choice. During my last Ulta store visit I was introduced to this product and decided to give it a try. Although the pre-moistened pads are more convenient the end result can not compare to how clean, soft and chemical free your eye lids, under eye area and lashes feel!
Before using you'll need to give the bottle a little shake to distribute the "goodness", then dispense onto a "premium" type cotton round, but it's definitely worth those few extra steps!

Burned my eyes the first day I used it. So I washed my face, and still could not get this oily stuff off of my eyes. Went to bed and woke up with swollen eyes. And my eyes continued to hurt and be swollen all day. I've used every eye makeup remover on the market to date. And never have I had this reaction. I Returned it immediately! So much for an all natural product.

I'm not allergic to ANYTHING and this product BURNED my face. I only gave it one star because it DID remove my makeup.
Maga from Denver, CO
I found the perfect eye make up remover! No allergies at all, my eyes don't burn anymore! I will use this product for ever! 5 stars!!
Peach from USA
I had been using Mary Kay eye makeup remover for over a decade, which is honestly the best I've ever used, but I needed to switch to a vegan option. This is basically a vegan dupe of my old eye makeup remover and I couldn't be happier. I always use this before washing my face at night. It's not a good idea to leave solvents on your face, so I'm not surprised some people are complaining about residue. Just use this before washing your face and you'll be good to go. So glad this doesn't irritate my eyes and doesn't take much effort to take off makeup. I've repurchased this a couple times now and will probably continue to do so.
Eye makeup remover
Mary from Portland
Love how this works but the scent is strong.
Amanda from Michigan
This is a great eye makeup remover! It removes my mascara and eyeliner without a ton of effort, and even better, without leaving behind a ton of oil! I have fallen in love with this brand and its prices. I have purchased this, and other Botanics products, multiple times!
Lily from Naples, FL
This product is amazing!!! I have no clue how there are even bad reviews, as it removes my waterproof mascara, eyelash glue, AND extremely pigmented eyeshadows effortlessly! It comes as seperated oils, so you have to shake it, which i think may be why it hasn't worked for other people. But when I say this product is AMAZING for removing eye makeup, trust me. I do a full face of makeup at least once a week and cannot live without this product.
Better than average

This removes my eye makeup pretty well but I feel I need to use a lot. It does remove everything without burning or irritating my eyes. Took a star off because I need to use a bit to remove my eye makeup. Is not oily or greasy.
miomega from Lansing
I thought this remover did a pretty decent job removing eye makeup, I didn't get a stinging or burning feeling. However, it did leave a filmy residue behind on my eyeballs! it made my vision a little cloudy after using it. I figured I would keep it around for emergencies or to get out costume makeup.
Best eyemakeup remover ever!
J from Nj
Took off all of my heavy eye makeup. Didn't burn my eyes at all, which most other removers do. Wasn't greasy feeling and rinsed off well.
Swollen girl from Detroit, Michigan
I used this for the first time the other night, woke up with bright red eyes and swollen eyelids. I had to go to urgent care, get prescribed medication, miss work, very unhappy with this product. I am returning every botanic brand I have just bought. I wish I could give less than one star.
Hands down, best eyemakeup remover ever!
Jo from Arizona
I was looking for a micellar water today when I came across this. It was within my budget so I thought, what the heck, I'll buy it.
I tried it today after applying primer, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, and concealer. I used a round cotton pad. Normally, when I'm removing my eye makeup, I use at least two pads (front/back) per eye. With this product I only used one pad and almost all of the makeup came off in one sweep. Mascara has always been the hardest for me to remove and I'm usually left with mascara the next morning, but not with this product! I absolutely love it and will buy it again when I run out!
Very good product
Lexxis from Hou, TX
I was just looking for a product to take my eye makeup off. My makeup wipes were way too rough and it started making me lose some eyelashes. I saw this randomly and I was like hmmm ok cute packaging and pretty cheap so bought it and it's worked really good to take my eye makeup off, especially my mascara that doesn't want to come off easily for whatever reason. I haven't paid much attention to smell.... after you take the eye makeup off it is a little oily/greasy but not to the extent where I feel I have to wash it off. I will be purchasing again once I run out.
I would Not buy this product cause of an allergy ...
Tonya from Henderson, NV
I really liked this product but due to many allergies I have with plants and interacts with my medication for heart and pulmonary I couldn't use this product it's a shame cause it made my undereyes so soft and smooth... but , when I used it about 30mins later my eyes were swollen I have very sensitive eyes blue fair and auburn hair with freckles ... I'm in my early 40's skin changes and more sensitive when you take medicine for heart and pulmonary allergies as well... sad I couldn't use it but it's a great product...
Definitely will buy this again!
Catherine from Gresham, Oregon
I am new to playing with 'real' makeup so I was looking for a makeup remover that is cruelty free and I love this product. I used to use Neutrogena wipes (blue package) which are wonderful but I am trying to make a slow switch (when I run out) to cruelty free products and I think this is a great equivalent to the wipes. I also have adult acne that is intensified with certain products and this product does not make me break out. Definitely recommend!
Not for waterproof makeup
Hayley from US
I wear all waterproof eye makeup and this stuff doesn't take it off. Won't be buying this again.
Now that I found you again...
Jennie from Seattle
I use this product primarily to remove waterproof mascara. I have to use waterproof because I curl my lashes everyday. I just put a small amount on a cotton round & the mascara melts right off. Most folks don't know that Botanics is a line by No7. So the quality is high as well.
Best ever make up remover!
Fran from Hillsboro, Oregon
I have found this product to be the most effective of removing water- proof mascara.
Very gentle and soothing to the eyes.
LOVE this eye makeup remover!
Alex from Pocatello, ID
I am so happy I stumbled upon this cheap yet effective product! Love the price point and the love product even more. It works wonders with removing eye makeup and doesn't sting! Which is a huge plus for me. The only con is that I do have to rinse my eye area off afterwards since it does leave a little bit of a greasy residue.
Works well, but leaves residue
Lilbogey from Tennessee
I was really excited to try this as I've use other products by this brand and have loved them! However, that was not the case here. The remover works really well but the greasy feeling last almost all day. If I use the remover in the morning it will stay all day. I will wipe away, etc but nothing helps. Greasy.
So far I'm not impressed
Lucy from Los Angeles
It claims it soothes the eyes but my eyes are still stinging and I used it almost a half hour ago! The make up came off super easily but that trade off is too steep for me. I will not be purchasing again.
