Review: Almay Moisturizing eye make up remover pads

My thoughts and experience:  
I've been needing another eye make up remover, so when CVS has a sale on these, I decided to give it a try. Almay moisturizing eye make up remover pads come in a bottle of 80 pre-soaked pads, which makes them really convenient if you're traveling. They're completely fragrant free and hypoallergenic. The pads have a very greasy and oily feel to them. I'm not sure if this is the moisturizing property of it(?)

I only use them at night because I would definitely have to wash off the oily residue left behind. I do find that oil based eye make up removers take off makeup easier and are more gentle on the eyes. I had no issues with these on my eyes as a contact lens wearer. I use one pad to remove eye make up on both eyes. It takes off eyeshadow, water proof mascara and eyeliner too with ease.

Overall, I think it does an amazing job removing make up with ease. I really wish it wasn't so oily. If you're looking for something to take off eye make up at the end of the day, I would recommend these. They're so cheap too! I bought the oil free ones too, I can't wait to try them out.
