Will SKIN BALANCING Oil-Reducing Cleanser leave my skin feeling dry & taut?

No. SKIN BALANCING Oil-Reducing Cleanser was carefully formulated to cleanse the skin thoroughly and remove makeup plus excess oil without stripping or drying the skin.

Do I still need to use an eye makeup remover?

Only if you are wearing waterproof mascara, waterproof makeup, or long-wearing lip color or stains. Otherwise, this cleanser is amazingly effective at gently removing all other types of face and eye makeup.
