Sometime back I bought from benefit a promo pack called Real SEXY STEAL containing the following:

they're Real! Mascara (full size)
they're Real! Remover (0.36g)
they're Real! push-up liner (7.5ml)

I was needing to buy another of their mascaras and this pack basically gave you the other two trial size products free.
I haven't yet tried the liner, but here are my thoughts on the eye make remover.

Most of the eye make up removers that I have tried and tested in the past generally cope pretty well with removing my mascara whether it be waterproof or not, although some may need a slightly longer soak with a cotton pad.

Of all the formula's of eye make up removers on the market, I prefer a lotion, especially a bi-phase one and this remover from benefit is a thickish creamy gel,not my favourite type, as for me they have that association with Petroleum Jelly.
(Pet Hate: Petroleum Jelly type products are not, in my opinion,ever to be used to remove your eye make-up with, as it's just too heavy for the delicate skin around the eye area.Yet I hear of so many people still using it, despite there being an endless selection of affordable Dermatological and Ophthalmology formulated products available)

they're real! remover is specially formulated to remove their bestselling they’re real! mascara and they’re real! push-up liner, it does completely lift away waterproof eye makeup with ease and without tugging the delicate skin around the eye area.
It has no noticeably fragrance and is suitable for sensitive eyes & contact lens wearers. 

Whilst I did enjoy the gentleness, speed and effectiveness of this remover it hasn't convinced me to switch over from my lotions to a creamy gel formula just yet.
However if you are a heavy user of eye make-up and waterproof mascaras then this is most definitely one to consider trying.
