Must-Have Makeup Removers
It’s not good to leave makeup on when you sleep. The gunk can build up in your pores, causing acne. It can also muddy up the look you apply over any residue the next day.
Although soap and water cleans off most dirt and grime, it doesn’t work well when removing makeup, especially when it comes to waterproof beauty products.
Though there are many makeup removers to choose from, some are much better than others. If you’re looking for a new eye makeup remover, consider these top 5 products (in no particular order). They’ll easily wipe away even a bright, heavily-applied makeup look.
Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover
Priced at $17.50, this oil-based makeup remover takes off most of the day’s makeup with just one swipe. Since it is based in oil instead of alcohol, it won’t dry out your skin. Although it’s perfect for those with normal or dry skin tones, those with very oily skin may want to avoid it.
Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover is fragrance-free and doesn’t irritate sensitive skin or eyes.
Luzier Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
When Luzier says gentle, they aren’t lying. Rather than feeling like alcohol or oil, this makeup remover has the consistency and scent of water. Add some to a cotton ball or square and wipe away makeup with ease. It’s also fragrance-free.
Pick up Luzier Gentle Eye Makeup Remover from your local Luzier rep or on their website for $8.00.
The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
This makeup remover is loaded with natural ingredients such as organic camomile water and algae extract. It’s perfect for those who like a natural touch, though it does contain alcohol which may be drying for ladies with already dry skin. It easily dissolves eye makeup with a gentle formula.
You can find Camomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover in stores at The Body Shop or online for $14.50.
Lancome Effacil Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
Effacil doesn’t leave an oily residue, which is perfect for ladies with oily skin. It consists of a water-based formula that leaves eyes refreshed as it takes off heavy eye makeup. Though it removes non-waterproof makeup with just one swipe, it needs a few more passes to tackle waterproof beauty products.
Lancome Effacil Gentle Eye Makeup Remover is sold online or at Lancome counters in department stores for $26.00.
In a hurry? Use these makeup remover wipes from MAC Cosmetics. Each individual wipe is large enough to remove all makeup on your entire face without reaching for another wipe. Packaging is resealable and easy to take on the go.
Purchase MAC Wipes online or in MAC stores for $18.00 for 45 sheets or $26.00 for 100 sheets.
