Nivea Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover Review

I had run of eye makeup remover,I have never found a good one and I just picked this up thinking it would be great for my sensitive eyes. 
It cost me 3.00 euros. Little did I know it had two layers, an oil and an aqueous. According to this the "oil phase effectively removes waterproof mascara, eye makeup, specially formulated and tested for the sensitive eye area"."the aqueous phase protects and cares for the eye lashes with it's caring formula, without leaving an oil residue". Now I have always got on great with nivea products, but no way with this one.

What I look for in an eye makeup remover is to make your eyes feel refreshed and soothed, this remover gave me the complete opposite! It says on the bottle to shake it up to make sure the two phases get mixed. I shook so hard and yet within seconds it went back to its normal two layers. So everytime I squeezed this onto a face pad, it was literally oil. I know that oil based eye makeup removers are meant to be very good, and I will give that my eye shadow came off very quickly and easy but my mascara was a different story! I really had to scrub at my eye to get it off, therefore after my eye was red and irritated and felt all yocky oily. It feels awful on my eyes when I put it onto the pad, as the oil dries in very quickly so you have to squeeze tons of it on! Then I noticed the next morning all above my eyebrow, the bridge of my nose and temples of my forehead were covered in spots, and I would blame it on the oil of this remover!
As I quoted the back of the bottle above, it literally gives you the complete opposite.
Anyone with sensitive eyes, AVOID this remover!!
