10 Makeup Removers That Are Too Good To Be True
What’s the point of having a proper skincare routine if you’re not properly removing your makeup, am I right? And what’s the point of investing in good makeup if your canvas isn’t the best it can be? The most important part of any skincare and beauty routine is proper makeup removal. That means finding a cleanser that suits your skin type, removes all traces of makeup and makes you feel good.
Below are our favorite makeup removers of all time. They get down and dirty to make us nice and clean. Thank you, makeup removers! You’re unsung heroes!
This is currently the makeup remover I can’t get enough of. It’s made with 100% natural ingredients and is vegan and cruelty-free. The consistency is a slightly-watery gel cleanser with a light fragrance that’s hard to pin down, but is not overpowering in the slightest. With a quarter-sized amount, it gets every trace of makeup off from waterproof mascara to cream foundation. I am loving this and highly, highly recommend it. Especially if you’re transitioning to a cruelty-free regimen.
With one swipe of this super-cute, plush makeup removing cloth, all of your makeup — theater makeup, waterproof, longwear formula — is instantly gone. We’ve recently received one to try and will be posting a review on it soon. Stay tuned!
Judging by the reviews, this drugstore find not only does a stellar job at removing all kinds of makeup, it leaves the skin dewy and soft after use. Clean, supple skin? Sign me up!
This silky cleansing balm goes from balm to oil to milk to remove all traces of makeup without stripping the skin of its natural oils. It’s a hydrating balm that feels positively luxurious on the skin and will leave you squeaky clean and soft to the touch.
Consistently voted one of the best makeup removers on the market, the Caudalie Cleansing Oil formula transforms from an oil to a milky emulsion that gently removes makeup. Suitable for all skin types and made with natural ingredients, the Caudalie Cleansing Oil is one most beauty editors recommend everyone try.
6. Coconut Oil
There’s nothing like some good ol’ coconut oil to do the nasty job of removing our makeup at the end of a long day. Coconut oil is the ultimate natural makeup remover and I can guarantee does the job every single time, regardless of the makeup I’m wearing.
StyleCaster has it in their top 10 list, Real Simple in theirs; hmm, we’re starting to think there’s something to this makeup remover we have yet to discover. The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Makeup Remover is said to be the best cleanser for long-wearing makeup. Bonus points for conditioning our lashes as it removes makeup. Woowoo!
Personally, I’m not a fan of makeup removing wipes. For some reason, the process doesn’t feel sanitary enough for me. Call it a weird quirk or… a weird quirk, but the point that I’m trying to make is that when I get behind a removal wipe, it’s because it’s good. Real good. The Clean Truth Cloths contain Vitamin C and CoQ10 to brighten and hydrate the skin; so yeah, you can call this your all-in-one cloth.
Looking for a good time? You’ll find it in this uber-luxurious, too-silky-for-its-own-good oil cleanser. The La Mer Cleansing Oil is not only know for its rich formula, but for its ability to get rid of even the most stubborn makeup.
This is the OG of makeup removers. My mother uses Pond’s to remove her makeup, my grandmother used it and if it was around when my great-grandmother was alive, I’m sure she would have used it too. Pond’s Cold Cream is a heavy cream formula that feels like heaven when removing your makeup. It doesn’t dry out the skin, instead leaving it soft, supple and moisturized.
