Default Eye Makeup Remover recs?

Hi, what do you all use to remove eye shadow, liner, mascara?
Do you use your face cleanser or a seperate eye make up remover. I've seen the eye makeup removers, but don't know if they are special enough to make a difference vs. washing off with face cleanser.
I use a gentle face foam, but might be to harsh for my lashes?? They aren't falling out, but want treat myself the best I can. I'm not sure on this one.

I use Clinique's Take the Day Off and it works fine - no burning, not harsh, even gets off waterproof.

i use the drugstore/supermarket generic of those facial cleansing towellettes that all the major skin care companies have out now - Olay, Ponds, Neutrogena, etc.

they cost half as much and are just as good. all my makeup comes off, even waterproof mascara.

I have used Sephora's brand of eye makeup remover--very clean and not oily. Cetaphil works well and is cheap. Health food stores carry Petal Fresh which has been good too. Don't use baby oil as it can bother the skin around your eyes--clog it up.

I use the Almay eye makeup remover pads. You can get them at WalMart, etc. When I started using them years ago, they had a moisturizing formula and I think a non-oily formula. I use the moisturizing formula only, so I don't know if the other is still around. I have had no probs with this product (I wear contacts, but take my contacts out before I take off my eye makeup, so contacts are not exposed to the oil).

I use baby oil to remove all my eye makeup. It gets everything off and is super cheap!

Thanks for the tip Rou! I went to Walmart today and picked up a package of their 'Equate' ones (generic).

I've used Cetaphil for years - it never leaves a film or makes my eyes itch.

The other remover I used recently was Mary Kay's Eye Makeup Remover. I loved it but wouldn't pay $16 or whatever for it.

trust me on this one, there is no eyemake up remover that is as good as Dermalogicas soothing eye make up remover, oh my good...Ive tried everything!! THis one is the most gentle one (with nice ingrediens) and it even takes of the most stubborn mascara. Just ask for a sample at a Dermalogica store..its a bit expensive but u will love it once you try it. The whole Dermalogica line works wonders for face care, eye make up remover leaves your lashes fresh and almost "silk" like the skin around eyes feel smoot and NOT dry at all...no lanolin oil, no mineral oil, no sulfate, no alcohol, etc etc. Only the best of the best stuff therefore the expensive price. Your face will thank You
