Makeup removal is just as important as its application

Makeup removers and their effectiveness depend on the ingredients and what you’re using them for. Using an eye remover to remove eye makeup may not be as effective if you’re using an eye remover to remove foundation. Oil-free makeup removers may work for one woman, while it doesn’t work for another. Here are a few of the top-notch makeup removers for both face and eyes, in hopes that you can find your best match.

For eyes:
You want a gentle, yet tough remover for your eyes. This is because mascara and many liquid liners are hard to get rid of.

A few favorites:

Sephora Collection Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
, $10.50

Coast to Coast Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, $17.99

Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover, $18.50

Boots Expert Sensitive Gentle Eye Makeup Removal Pads, $5.49

For face:
I’m all about facial wipes. The key is to use a facial wipe before you cleanse your face. That way, you’re ensuring a deep cleanse.

A few favorites:

Sephora Express Cleansing wipes, $9

Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes, $12

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, $4.79

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths, $5.99
