I wear contacts and have sensitive eyes. Clinique Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Solvent works great in removing eye shadow and mascara without irritating my eyes. It really does take off mascara with little effort, which is nice. The downside: Paying so much for something you can't even see. It's a bit pricey, but it works well-especially on sensitive eyes. The solvent is $16.50 at Clinique counters.
