In the market for a new makeup remover? Give one of these a try!

  1. Pond’s Deep Cleanser & Makeup Remover (Cucumber Extract)
    There’s a reason Pond’s have been around for years – their products work! This deep facial cleanser and makeup remover has a fresh, clean scent that leaves your skin feeling intensely clean and hydrated – it even removes stubborn eye makeup! I usually use a tissue to wipe eye makeup clean, then wash the rest of my face with a warm washcloth to get everything off. It doesn’t seem to irritate my sensitive skin either – definitely a bonus! You can try to find it at your local drugstore, but it’s hard to find – sells it for $8.29.
  2. Philosophy Just Release Me Oil-Free Makeup Remover
    If you’ve ever read my articles, you know I am a huge Philosophy fan – their oil-free makeup remover is no exception. While a bit pricey, it gets the job done without stinging or burning my eyes, and it removes all traces of stubborn shadow, eyeliner, and mascara. It also doesn’t contain all that nasty gunk that other removers have, like parabens, sulfates, and synthetic dyes and fragrances.
  3. Almay Hypo-Allergenic Eye Makeup Remover Pads
    A friend turned me on to these makeup remover pads when I was frustrated with a previous remover, and I was very glad she did. These pads are little miracle workers in a jar; one swipe removes waterproof makeup, liner, and shadows with hardly any pulling or tugging! It does feel a little greasy, but that’s because it also moisturizes the eye area in addition to cleansing. Just make sure to wash your face afterwards and you will be golden!
  4. Clinique Naturally Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
    For those of you who have sensitive eyes, you have to try this amazing makeup remover from Clinique. The creamy formula glides on and off with a tissue and gets rid of everything – I really mean everything! Your eyes won’t feel irritated, hurt, or sensitive afterwards and you won’t feel like any residual remover is left over after washing. It’s pricey, but worth it!
  5. Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes
    I love how convenient and portable these heavy-duty makeup remover towelettes are. When you don’t feel like going through your entire face wash routine, grab one of these wipes to remove all traces of even the most stubborn makeup – including lip stains and waterproof mascara! They left my skin feeling refreshed, clean, and healthy and it only took one step. How can you go wrong?

If you aren’t happy with your current makeup remover, give one of these featured removers a try. They are easily the top 5 I’ve found that remove all traces of stubborn, hard-to-remove makeup and they don’t irritate my sensitive skin.
