Garnier Skin Naturals Fresh Eye Makeup Remover: Review

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review. 
Hi guys,  I have a eye makeup remover review to share with y'all! Makeup remover reviews aren't something that I do very often as you guys know how much I love cleansing oils. In fact, I don't even remember the last time I used a makeup remover! But anyhow, the Garnier Skin Naturals Fresh Eye Makeup Remover promises to effectively and gently remove all eye makeup. It contains detoxifying grape extract and is good for contact lens wearers and those with sensitive eyes.
So just how effective is it? Read more by clicking........

I am going to cut right to the chase, this eye makeup remover did not work very well. I tested this on smudge proof eyeliner and waterproof mascara and instead of breaking down the makeup and lifting it up from the skin the remover only smudged things around. I applied the remover with a cotton bud and after a few swipes all I ended up with was some serious raccoon eyes. In addition, unlike a cleansing oil, the remover dried on the skin and will not remove with water so all in all it was rather counterproductive.
I do have to say that the formula was very gentle, I experienced no stinging and the remover felt very much like a gentle toner; it made the skin around the eyes feel nice and supple. With that said though, this product simply did not live up to its claim.
Overall, I am disappointed with this product but I am certainly not deterred from trying other Garnier skincare products especially since they released a new cleansing oil that's probably more up my alley.

Have you tried this particular eye makeup remover? Do you generally find non-oil based makeup removers effective? Let me know in the comments below!
