I don't wear much face makeup (no foundation), but this takes off eye makeup like you wouldn't believe. Mascara just disappears--when I wiped the product off, there was almost no trace of mascara or other eye makeup on the washcloth. What is this sorcery? I like this a lot better than the micellar water I was using previously to remove makeup, which required a lot of wiping and tugging. This is more effective and way more gentle. Two thumbs up!
