The MakeUp Eraser works best when the cloth is soaked with water. For best results, use a circular motion with the MakeUp Eraser and it will effectively erase all makeup. Recommended use around the eyes is gentle circles as well as cleaning in-between eyelashes without damaging or tugging on them. The cloth is large enough and does not smear makeup like traditional chemical products and cloths. This allows for customers to only require a small section of the cloth with each use.
