I love Tarte's lights, camera lashes mascara and the maneater mascara. I also wear the shape tape foundation. I have tried three different makeup remover and always end up with raccoon eyes the next day! Ugh! It never seems to get all of the makeup off. Note I don't buy waterproof mascara either. I saw this in the store and picked it up to try. I finally can't get all the mascara and foundation off! This stuff is very gentle on the face. Easy to wipe across the eyes for removal. The bottle is nice because you put the cotton ball right on it and press. It depresses all onto the cotton ball. 4 stars because it didn't full remove my eyeliner, but I don't wear eyeliner enough that it was a big deal.
This really caught my eye and I actually tracked it down to a store near me with store locater to get it, which usually I don't go to stores for one specific product. I was sick of using makeup wipes and was looking for a greener way to remove makeup, this is on a clean list ( clean ingredients,) so I figured it'd be perfect for me. I usually go for "clean," products because they're easy on my skin and don't strip me of my natural oils and leave me feeling sore, so I was really sad when this did exactly that. The bottle is so nice, but it burns my eyes and when I used it to remove face makeup my face was left very sore and almost chapped. Not to mention it goes very quickly, you have to use a lot of product to get off a normal amount of makeup. It smells a bit earthy, like lake water I think. I don't mind that but when it's burning your eyes off the smell can be bothersome. It does it's job, it gets makeup off and doesn't leave an oily residue, but for me it left me dry and stinging. My face hurt to touch, felt almost raw. I just feel like that can't be good for my skin and eyes, nothing about it feels natural at all. If you have sensitive skin, especially eyes, just be a little cautious

I recently received this in my boxycharm. I absolutely love how gentle it is on my sensitive eyes while being tough on my waterproof mascara. I didn't even bother finishing my previous brand micellar water.

I love micellar water, it works so well for removing make up after a long day or for playing with make up. Plus I mean I could buy any brand but I swear by TARTE!
Taylor from Tacoma, wa
Got this in my boxy charm. I don't have sensitive skin at all but there is a slight burn sensation when I use it. Not painful. Just very slight discomfort. strangest thing and honestly doesn't take off my mascara.

This is great for face and lip makeup but it doesn't remove waterproof mascara like it says. For reference I have combo/oily skin and this doesn't make me greasy or dry me out.

I got this in my boxy charm and I was excited because I wanted to try miceller water as a cleanser because I had been using make up remover wipes and I heard that those are bad for your skin so I did enjoy this however I like the garnier bottle better because you can squirt it on the pad instead of the pump that the tarte one has and I feel it is more sanitary to squirt it rather than pump it and the pump on the tarte bottle gets the water all over it .. if that makes sense lol

This is perfect as a makeup remover. With makeup wipes, they are often times so dry you need 3-5 to remove a full face of makeup. However, with this product I was pleasantly surprised to find that with only ONE cotton round/pad and three pumps of the Tarte Micellar Magic, it took away a full glam look; mascara, eyebrows, and all!

Mac from Dover ky
I got this in my boxycharm. It gets all the makeup off but it burns my eyes really bad and I always notice a really weird smell. Like mildewy smell.
Tdiaz from Chicago
It works really awesome! Leaves my face super clean and hydrated. It does burn on the eyes very little if you let it get in your eye. Just shut ur eye tight like you should with any product.
BeautyDoll from California
I like that it does remove all makeup but it burns my skin i feel this burning sensation for a few minutes and i do not have sensitive skin only dry skin, i don't think i will repurchase because of that not sure if has alcohol on it
Cierra from Georgia
This product was actually gifted to me by a friend and I was excited to try it out. It took off all of my mascara and didn't burn my eyes. When I run out, I'll definitely buy a new bottle.
Allie from New Jersey
Absolutely love this micellar water! It removes my makeup SO EASILY, I am definitely going to buy more and use less makeup wipes! It even removed my Tati beauty glitter shadows without leaving leftover glitter everywhere! SO WORTH IT

first off I want to say to the comment below mine, that the free gift was only applied when you spent $30 or more I believe.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. I don't know if I just have thick skin or if it was formulated different for Boxycharm but that's where I received mine. I got a full size in my Boxycharm. I never put any products near my eyes except eye cream. even if it says its safe. that's just me. it removes all my makeup super easy. it doesn't burn me anywhere. for my eye makeup I use the makeup eraser towel. great stuff. I have oily/ combo skin and im 21 if that helps.
Maddie from Deptford
Got this in my body charm box and was excited to try. Well, it burned my eyes so bad they were red for days! I made sure to read the ingredients beforehand to make sure I wasn't allergic , idk what's in here that caused the reaction. But I'm throwing away, do not buy!
M. Winter from South Carolina
Purchased this because I like using micellar water to remove waterproof mascara. Very disappointed because not only did it not remove my mascara but OMG I thought I was gonna go blind because it burns so much! I've used other brands and have never experienced this before. I love the dispenser so and hopefully I can at least reuse for other micellar water. Also I ordered this during the time frame to receive a free gift and DIDN'T GET ONE!! Why even put that in the listing if you're not going to receive one??? I will not repurchase this!!

I've used other brands of micellar water and have never had an experience like this! It does not remove my make up and it Burned the heck out of my eyes.
Taylor from Chattanooga
One of the better vegan eye makeup removers I've used. Would definitely recommend
SB from Alabama
I was very excited when I received this in my boxycharm. The packaging was so cute and I love idea of the bottle and application style. Then I used it... First off it squirted sideways instead of onto the cotton pad. Of course I assumed it must be user error but after trying every other way I can think of, same result. It removes makeup well but OMG it burns. I tried not swiping too hard and staying away from the eye as much as possible but just can't get the makeup off without coming near the waterline and the base of my eyelashes. I tried several days in a row thinking eventually I would figure it out but it's almost worse with every use. This is my first micellar water so I don't really have anything to compare this to but boy it's just not worth it!
Merril from San Jose, CA
I tried to use it to take off my makeup like any other Micellar water and it burned my eyelids. I had to immediately go wash it out because that's how painful it was
Jenn from KY
Several reviews have mentioned burning eyes and skin. i have sensitive skin and got lucky and this hasn't burned when I used it. It has worked wonders for me. Its better than my usual micellar water (garnier) I start with one gentle swipe and makeup comes of so easily. I am able to remove my makeup quicker with this! I got this in boxycharm, and I will most definitely repurchase when I run out!
Shylum from SC
I was so excited when I saw this product. I've been using Garnier but thought maybe Tarte's would be just as good if not better so I gave it a try. The first time I used it, it burned me so badly, but I thought maybe it was because I had just gotten out of my tanning bed and my face was irritated. The 2nd time I used it, I thought, perhaps I just rubbed too hard. So, I gave it another try tonight. I didn't rub it, I haven't been tanning, I just put some on a cotton round and laid it on my closed eyelid. The minute I swiped it across my eyes, they started burning on the edges, underneath my bottom lashes, and my cheeks. Tarte, please check this formula and see what it is that's burning your customers!
Jordan from Fayetteville Arkansas
I received this product in my "Boxy Charm" box. I love it BUT it burns my eyes not blinding burning just uncomfortable burning but it does go away very quickly BUT it does remove my makeup without scrubbing my eyes and face...I've always been super sensitive and I have only found one brand that doesn't leave me burning but I have to use so much. I will buy this product and deal with the burning for a brief time.
olivia from summerville sc
I have sensitive skin and had no problems with this unlike other reviews this worked wonderfully for me and still does love it!
Jordan from Sedona
I bought this primarily to remove eye makes up. Forced myself to use a good bit of it as it wasn't the cheapest option. Finally after half way through I threw it out because it burned and stung my eyes so bad. Would not recommend.
