Apricot Kernel Oil is extracted from apricot kernels and has a very high Vitamin E content (aiding fast absorption) and is a trygliceride composed of 75% oleic acid and 20% linoleic acid, and unsaturated fatty acids esterified with glycerin - similar to avocado oil and sesame oil. Found to be highly compatible with the skin. Apricot Kernel Oil moisturizes and softens skin while helping retain clarity and suppleness.

Does this remove waterproof mascara?
Kelly H on Sep 4, 2013
Best Answer: I do use waterproof mascara, and this product works perfectly. I never use a pad to apply, however. I put some on my fingertip and softly rub it over my entire eye area. Then I remove with a wet washcloth. I have been using for years and am about to order yet another bottle.

Is this makeup remover okay to use if you have lash extensions? Is is water based or oil based?
Miriam Y on Jul 28, 2012
Best Answer: This has apricot oil in it, so I wouldn't use it with extensions. Unfortunately I didn't know that when I purchased it but read the ingredients after I got it. I used it anyway for my lower eyeliner and it seemed to make my extensions fall out more. I use waterproof eyeliner and it doesn't even remove it easy. Bummed... I took a chance I'm buying this even though no one answered this question which is over a year old!

Can you use without rubbing lids?
A shopper on Dec 16, 2013
Best Answer: Depends on the makeup. I use it gently on my lids (with a cotton pad) to remove powder eyeshadow, no rubbing required. For mascara, it takes a few downward strokes (gentler if I let my lashes soak it up briefly) and then some clean up around the eyes. A little rubbing, but no scrubbing. Hope that's helpful. Overall this is very kind on the eyes, no irritation even when I've left my contacts in.

Can you use the eye makeup remover as a cleanser for the whole face on sensitive skin?
Pammy on Mar 28, 2015
Best Answer: I don't have any experience using it as a facial cleanser but it is the best eye makeup remover I have ever used. It only takes four drops to remove the mascara, eyeliner, and under eye makeup from both eyes. It lasts a long time and doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes at all. You might try increasing the area a little at a time.
