Awesome for mascara - not eyes!

Location: London

I bought this as I really struggle to remove the mascara. The first day I used it I followed the instructions on the label - added it to the cotton and it removed the mascara off the first eye without any trouble - eye did sting a bit but nothing to complain about. The second eye didn't go so well, as I wiped the cotton wool over the eye the cream 'filled' the gaps in between the lashes and as much as I washed it wouldn't come out and I got it into my eye. The burning was pretty intense and once washed out I had a haze over my eye. The morning after I woke up with both eyes all crusty, very red and swollen. I am now day 3 post this incident and the redness is finally going - DO NOT get into your eyes!!!

Need if you have Benefit eyeliner

I found that the Benefit pushup eyeliner would not come off until I used the They're Real Remover. This is a must-have if you have the Benefit eyeliner.

Not what I was hoping for

Location: Michigan
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “Not something I have to use”

I wanted to love this. I am a Benefit product addict, and have tried almost everything they make, and love almost everything I have tried. Not this one though... I don't have sensitive skin or eyes- I can usually use any sample or product without worrying about a reaction... but this remover is an exception. I am used to an oil-free liquid remover, but thought I'd try this one since I received a deluxe sample of it. It is cream based, and it is messy and cumbersome to use. It requires lots of rubbing, too. You need multiple swipes with the cotton pad to remove the makeup, but the minute I went over my eye once, I felt a slight burning/tingling in my eyes! I tried to use it the next night with the same issue. Do not recommend at all!!

Åmazing !

Love that it's: “hassle free”

I love this product. After using a sample of it from a benefit store it conditioned and removed all make up from my eyes with a few wipes. It did not sting at all which is wonderful as i have quite sensitive eyes. I would highly reccommend.

Brilliant - if used properly.

Location: West Midlands
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Olive
Love that it's: “not oily”

It's not as easy as 'apply to cotton wool and wipe' as the video suggests but it really does work, with a little patience. I massage a little into the eye lashes for about 30 seconds then wipe with damp cotton wool. I then, roll a cotton bud down my lashes and wipe again with damp cotton wool. It's not immediate and may take a couple of tries but it really does work - unlike the many, many, many eye make up removers I've tried.

Really hurt and left mascara everywhere.

Location: Liverpool, UK
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Light

I'm not sure if the blend or ingredients have changed recently, but it burned my eyes really badly, I don't even have sensitive eyes. It also left mascara all down my face, it was disappointing considering it promises gentle removal.

Didn't like this product at all

Location: Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Light

I have sensitive eyes so was hoping that when the product said it removes make up easily, I decided to give it a go. I was very disappointed. It left mascara all over my face and by the time I had finished I had very sore and red eyes. I wouldn't recommend.

Actually extremely hot, burning hot!

Location: St Louis, MO
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Medium

This product burned my eyes really bad. I rinsed with water for about 5 minutes and then washed with soap and water. And then rinsed for another 5 minutes. When I was finally able to open my eyes, there was a film across them. I went to sleep and woke up the next morning to sore, runny eyes. If a product is to be used on the eye area, shouldn't it be more sensitive?

Removes They're Real with ease.

This product is awesome. It provides your face with the clean feeling afterwards. I don't think anything wipes away the liner or the mascaras as easily.

Good, not Great

Location: Columbia, SC, USA
Eyes: Blue
Skin tone: Medium

I'll start by saying I wear ALOT of mascara but I always hate having to scrub it off because I end up losing lashes. I asked one of the lovely ladies at ULTA what remover they recommended and she immediately answered with this remover. I was very excited to try because she swore by it but I was not fully satisfied with the result. It does a good job with my regular wear mascara but it just doesn't quite to the job on my waterproof/longwear mascaras. i end up spending a long time scrubbing my eyes which is not only bad for the skin around my eyes but also i lose ALOT of lashes when i have to do this. Overall I always have a great experience at the Benefit counter and have had great results with many of their products!

Better than other makeup remover

Location: Middlesbrough

I have really sensitive eyes that can get so iterated by the littlest thing, I very rarely wear mascara and thanks to this product I feel I can wear it more, I've had no problem using this products on my eyes, no irritation or itchiness. Would reccomend to anyone to use this product

Love that it's: “quite quick, efficient”

Until now, I´d always used Remove it to remove any makeup, face and eyes. What I usually did to remove the They´re Real! mascara was to press gently a cotton disc soaked with Remove it against my eyelashes for a few seconds and then remove it completely. The new eyeliner also comes off with Remove it, but it doesn't come off easily. Now, with this new makeup remover, the eyeliner comes off quite well (although for those remains between my eyelashes I use a cotton swab with a bit of product); and, of course, the mascara comes off quite nicely. I use Remove it now to remove the foundation from my face. Now that you´ve released the eyeliner, which I quite like, this is gonna be a must in my beauty bag.

It´s incredibel how it removes the eyeliner and mas mascara. This product is fantastic. About as easy to remove mascara and eyeliner. I used to have a hard time removing the mask but this product is awesome. To remove the eyeliner is just as easu as just pass the cotton with the product by the eye. Love it.

Love that it's: “light, silky”

The they're real remover is perfect for removing they're real mascara, which can be particularly tricky! The remover formula is light weight, has little to no smell and leaves my skin very smooth! I apply on a cotton ball and swipe across my lids and under eye. A little goes a long way which is great, because it's a decent size bottle.
