Why people love it
  • Affordable and available at any drugstore
  • Lightweight formula that feels like water
  • Does not dry out skin 

Ultra gentle, yet effective at removing even waterproof cosmetics.

Leaves behind oily residue. Could be easily spilled with wide spout.


Neutrogena has been a beauty brand must-have in American households since the 1930's. The products have remained affordable, while still being just as effective as their higher-end competitors. The same holds true for their Cleansing Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover. For that reason, it was the easy choice for the best cheap cosmetic remover. 


The ultra gentle dual phase formula becomes activated when shaken. The formula is gentle enough for sensitive skin but tough enough to remove even the most stubborn waterproof mascara. It's also safe for those eyes with contact lenses. 


Neutrogena claims this product to be 100% oil-free, yet still has a bit of an oily feel. Despite the oily dilemna, we couldn't get enough of the aloe and cucumber fruit extract, which left our skin feeling smooth and moisturized. 

Feeling after Use:

We loved how soft and smooth our skin felt after using this product. It does leave behind a slight oily residue, so you may need to wash your face after use.


This product for eyes and face really is the best for less. It may not have all of the bells and whistles compared to its competitors, but it does the job at removing cosmetics.
