Finding the perfect skin-friendly makeup remover is as important as everything else you put on your face. You want it to be gentle, cleansing, non-drying and maybe even a little moisturizing. Here are a few of our member’s favorite ways to get fresh-faced at the end of the day,
Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover
With just a sweep of a cotton swab, this liquid makeup remover dissolved eye makeup - even the most waterproof mascara fast and with ease. Those who use this product also love that it does not irritate sensitive skin or eyes. It also doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry like some removers. SheSpeaks member Addiewag724 calls this remover a “classic staple”. She says, “I have used this product for years because it works!! It melts my eye makeup and anything waterproof making it so easy to wash my face. I have no problems with irritation or residue. It doesn't make my skin feel greasy or dry. You really need this if you wear makeup!”
Mary Kay Oil Free Eye Makeup Remove
A very gentle on the skin formula that removes makeup quickly without leaving a greasy or oily feeling on your face. Those with sensitive skin swear by this remover and say it only takes one swipe to lift makeup. SheSpeaks member Wtatum01 says, “I really like this makeup remover for eyes. It quickly gets mascara and eyeliner off. I use a cotton pad and gently rub. It is gentle on the eye area without irritating it.”
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towlettes
A one stop more portable option to remove makeup, these facial wipes are great when you’re traveling or on the go. The towelette is both refreshing and stronger than a tissue and has a light scent. SheSpeaks member Mdblasioli turns to this brand when she is not using liquid makeup removers. She says, “When using a makeup towelette instead of liquid make up remover, this is always the product I turn to. Great product without an overly oil feel.”
Lancome Miel-enMousse Foaming Cleansing Makeup Remove
This is both a makeup remover and facial cleansing product that leaves your skin feeling soft and clean after use. It comes out in a thick honey like texture that becomes foamy as you rub it in. Unlike the other removers listed, this must be rinsed off after applying to the face. SheSpeaks member torexmeee loves the results she has seen with this cleansing makeup remover from Lancome. She says, “This is the best makeup remover and cleanser have use so far. Not only does it remove your makeup and cleanse your face, it also keep your skin fresh and prevent breakout. It also lost lk get too. I have been using the 6.7 oz for 5month now and it just pass half way through.”

I cant wait to try mary kay's makeup removal.
I'm a huge fan of trying new makeup removers. I like all of the ones mentioned above, as well as many many more!! I've recently started trying oil-based makeup removers in my routine. I was told that they can help with very dry skin, like I have, so I gave it a go! It does help keep my skin hydrated while removing my makeup. DHC has a great one! But there's lots of them out there. I also love a good makeup remover wipe, and there's thousands on the market. I've also fallen into the trend of reusable makeup remover cloths and pads. I've tried several of these as well. Just find whatever works best for you, your routine, and your skin and I think you're good.
I actually own all four of these makeup removers. Ive been using the Mary Kay Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover since 2004 and it has been my right hand to remove even the hardest eye makeup! It removes everything with little effort!
I LOVE Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm! It is very lightweight and easily takes off makeup I have been wearing and reapplying throughout the day. I don?t have to scrub hard to make sure all of my all of my waterproof eyeliner and mascara came off.
