After a long day, the last thing you want to do is wrestle off your makeup when you’d rather be in front of a TV. Here are our favorite removers that work and feel good on skin.
1. Lancome’s Bi-Facial Double Action Makeup Remover is a makeup artist favorite. It erases eye makeup (including waterproof formulas) without requiring a single tug, and we like that it doesn’t irrirtate our contacts or leave behind oily residue.
2. Clinique’s Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips has been in our lives for years. The liquid melts off makeup in one swipe. Tip: If you’re wearing layers of mascara, soak the cotton ball and let it sit on lashes for a few seconds before removing.
3. Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes get rid of makeup, dirt and sweat. All it takes is 1-3 passes for these gentle face wipes to do their job. We love their light, refreshing scent and their price at $6 a pack.
4. Guerlian Secret de Purete Makeup Remover is pricier than the others ($53), but it’s a gem, especially if you have dry skin. The silky formula has a nice slip so it glides on easily and absorbs whatever is in its tracks.
