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. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-6449230253172024847-full" data-show="-6449230253172024847-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

The best makeup remover ever!

This is hands-down the best makeup remover ever! I usually use long-wearing and/or waterproof makeup, which is difficult to remove with regular makeup remover. And I've tried plenty of different brands and formulations - liquid, lotion, cream, and on and on - but this lotion is the very very best. You don't need to use a lot of pressure or effort, just rub it on lightly and tissue it off, and waterproof mascara and eyeliner, longwearing foundation, all are gone. And it's a gentle lotion - nondrying but nongreasy - so it's great for any skin type. I have sensitive acne-prone skin, and it doesn't cause breakouts or excessive redness. I've gotten plenty of makeup remover samples, tried them all, but I always come back to this one.

Great of around the eyes

This has become a holy grail for use of makeup removal around my eyes. My skin is very sensitive around the eye area, it is easily dried out or over moisturized so finding a product that works for around my eyes is really hard. I like to take a cotton swab, or q-tip and around the eye area with this. I would really rate this a 4 1/2 because it does dry fast and if it dries than the makeup removing action is gone. It could also remove waterproof products a tad better. It is super gentle around the eyes though with the perfect amount of moisture. It feels so nice and smells wonderful, just a light clean scent! I like that it does not interfere with my contacts the next day, a lot of products get in my eyes and then bother me. I just follow with my eye cream. Love this stuff! I will buy it forever! Please don't stop making this! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="8531212311776761035-full" data-show="8531212311776761035-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

No no for sensitive skin.

I used these product about 7 years ago and had same problem , but i thought i would give it another go seen as our skn does change with age.... Nope... still made me breakout, skin felt tight and the redness it caused hurt quite abit on my nose area, i was 25 when i last tried it to remove my double wear but i shall be sticking with my usual oil based make up remover which cannot be beaten.1 more thing that bothered me is as soon as i started washing my face with 'Take it away' i couldnt help notice the exact same strong smell i get from my estee Lauder Brush cleaner spray???i gave it two stars because im sure normal skin will be fine with it but SENSITIVE dont go near it.

Wonderful Product

I received a trial size of this in a GWP and from the moment I first used it I was in love. It removes your makeup, cleanses your skin and leaves your skin feeling smooth and hydrated. I purchased the full size and will be repurchasing this as needed. It is the best skin cleanser/ makeup remover I have ever had and I highly recommend it. I have mature, dry skin and this leaves me looking great!
