Eye Makeup Remover

First of all, I apologize for the picture quality. The camera's out of commission, so this photograph is uploaded from my phone (HTC Inspire)

So we've got three different eye makeup removers to review. 
-Clinique Rinse Off Eye Makeup Solvent ($17 full sized)- 
This is the travel size, but has lasted me quite awhile. The formula is extremely oily, but effective none the less. I apply the solution with a cotton ball before I wash my face. I cleanse immediately after, and the oil left over from remover is easily washed away with the day. While I do use this remover for 
-H20 Water Activated Eye Makeup Remover ($16)- 
This formula is a gel, and is applied with your fingers instead of a cotton ball, etc. The gel is not very thick at all, but I did not have a problem with the application. I absolutely love this product. It seems to remove my waterproof mascara and eyeliner much more successfully than the other two. I love that I don't wake up with any left over product around my eyes. 
- Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover ($6)-
This is the remover I've been using for quite awhile. The price of the product and its relative effectiveness keeps me coming back. The formula says oil free but it does leave some amount of residue around my eyes. Not as much as clinique's rinse off (obviously) but more than H20's water activated. It does leave the skin around my eyes extremely soft, which is always a bonus. I've found that it does take a little longer than the other two to completely remove all traces of mascara, but it is effective none the less. 

Hope you enjoyed the reviews! 
Later, I'll be packing for a quick getaway this weekend. Might provide a peak into my travels.
