Most Helpful Positive Review No leftover makeup or irritation!
Finally! A product that helps me remove all of my foundation. My mom had a sample of this product and I had to buy the full size when I realized it removed my makeup without irritating my skin. I have very sensitive skin and my face doesn't like most products I try. Whenever my face doesn't agree with a product I get perioral dermatitis around my nose crease, smile lines and chin. As a makeup artist, I prefer a full coverage glam look. I use a gentle cleanser that isn't super soapy, therefore it sometimes has a hard time removing all of my foundation even though it's amazing for my skin! Before I wash my face I use Take It Away and tahdahhh! No leftover makeup on my face and no irritation! Mind you I do wash it off after I massage it on. It says you can just wipe it off and you don't have to rinse. I'm not sure how that would work for my skin. In my experience I always have to wash after any type of makeup remover. I'm glad I discovered this product. My skin feels super soft after too! As a side note, I have weird combination skin. Oily forehead, dry nose, mouth and chin, and normal around my eyes and cheeks.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not as expected
I bought this product among other at my local mall after reading about it on EL's site. I was excited to try it. However, I was quite disappointed with it. I also purchased the Double Wear foundation, so I use this cleanser to remove facial and eye makeup. While the scent is pleasant and it effectively removes eye makeup, it does not thoroughly remove the foundation. I tried removing the cleanser with water and also with tissue. I find removing the cleanser with tissue more effective. But I have to apply the cleanser twice in order to remove most of my makeup. I always follow up with a foam cleanser and a buffer or washcloth. I always have residual foundation on my washcloth/or buffer. I also notice that this lotion cleanser leaves a whitish residue on my face after wiping it off with a tissue. I went through a full size bottle of this cleanser within a 6 weeks or less. I do not use heavy makeup either! But I do not like any leftover makeup after using this cleanser. I really think this lotion works more effectively just for eye makeup removal. It helps to soften mascara and eyeliner and dissolves it well enough to be removed either by water or tissue. I should've kept using it for eye makeup removal!

Best Waterproof Makeup Remover!
Sunny from San Diego, CA
I use waterproof makeup and have tried so many makeup removers and they all left makeup on my face after use. Tried this remover as a sample and LOVED IT. Makeup comes completely off within a minute. NO makeup residue!!

This lotion is very convenient for removing makeup. The only drawback is that it can't be used up completely
Wonderful lotion cleanser
Sophie from Leesville Louisiana
I was a fan of the former Tender Creme Cleanser when it was in a jar with no water needed. After trying several cleansers, which I also like, I decided that Take it Away was for me. It reminds me of the jar cleanser I loved for many years. I love it for when I don't want to use water on my face.
Jayda from Johnson city, Tn
After layering powders, eyeshadow and thick foundation, a makeup wipe would take me forever to completely remove everything. This lotion helps so much with dissolving your makeup right off so all you have to do is wipe everything away! I personally like squeeze the product on my face and then massage my makeup off in circular motions. This lotion leaves your skin so smooth, but I'd recommend still washing your face afterwards. Getting ready to buy my 2nd bottle :)
Effective and Easy

I chose this as a sample one time and am placing a recurring order for it. It's easy to use and my old sensitive skin feels so good after using it.
Take it Away Removes It All
Ginny from Brandon, Mississippi
This gentle cleanser simply removes ALL your make-up, including hard-to-remove eye make-up. Just apply it and rinse it all off.
Jack from New Orleans, La.
Have been using this product for about 5 years and it's the best. Removes make up easily without endless rubbing, the product has little to no scent, and it travels well.
Probably the best make up remover
LauderLover from Los Angeles
I like the texture - unlike those liquid ones, this will not run everywhere on your face, eventually go down to your shirt and mess up everything. And I like how it cleans gently. The smell is also wonderful too. A definite 5-star.
Melts away makeup in an instant
Jnbbrandt from North Vernon, Indiana
Removes even waterproof and long wear makeup in an instant. Best remover I have ever used. No oily residue.
AnnaColorado from Grand Junction
This works so much better than oily eye makeup remover at removing mascara and eyeliner, even waterproof varieties. Because I don't have to use a cotton ball and don't have to rub hard, my eyelashes stay much healthier and fuller. And on the rest of my face, it rinses clean, and I don't have to use a cleanser after I use this product. Just rub gently onto face with fingertips, rinse off, and go to bed. It is a minor thing, but the pump dispenser also makes this product easier to use than a product with a screw top. No fumbling to recap a bottle or jar with greasy fingers, like I have to do with other makeup removers. And it totally removes the makeup without drying or irritating my sensitive skin.
Great product easy to use
Sammikate from De
At night I usually wash my face first with a gentle scrub. I then apply this product to damp skin or dry whichever you prefer then gently wipe the lotion away with a tissue. It works wonders taking anything off that the scrub missed especially pesky runny mascara. Leaving my skin very soft and clean. I have very sensitive skin and it doesn't break me out or irritate my face in any way. The smell isn't overpowering it's a nice clean scent.
Really Works Well
Vienna from NC
This is a new cleanser for me as I've run out of the discontinued Verity that I used for years. I must admit that this one is even better - it really removes all traces of makeup. The smell is really pleasing too - a winner!
Great makeup remover if used correctly.
CodeChic from Nashville TN
This is the only makeup remover that I will use. I have tried many over the years and this is my go to. I use 1-2 pumps and apply to dry skin with my hands massaging in circles over my entire face, then wipe off with warm damp washcloth and it removes everything. I then follow with Cetaphil foaming cleanser. I will say that you have to apply it to dry skin to melt the makeup off and I never cared for the directions on the bottle because it didn't feel like it rinsed or tissues off well. However using a warm washcloth to wipe off works well for me.
