With a dual-phase liquid formula that activates when shaken, the remover is silicone-free, fragrance-free, oil-free and formulated with Panthenol (Vitamin B5). Not only is it super gentle on my sensitive eyes, it does remove everything – gel eyeliner, waterproof mascara and even red lipstick – all in a jiffy and with no tugging/pulling or greasy residue. Don’t believe me? See for yourself below!

To put the product to the test, I swatched my favorite MAC Ruffian Red Lipstick onto my arm (we all know reds are famous for staining the skin), wait for it to set then soaked a cotton pad with the remover, put it on top of the swatch for a few seconds and voila! The red completely gone!

Another great thing about this is the price. At just $5.99 a pop, you are getting 118ml of product that delivers, which is no doubt a steal! Thanks Milani for creating yet another great drugstore find!

Milani Instant Eye Makeup Remover is available exclusively at for $5.99.

  1. Thanks! I’m definitely gonna try this out! I was so tired of buying the Lancome Bi-Ficil makeup remover, it’s like $40 bucks over here and I was looking for a cheaper alternative!
