A quality makeup remover is just as important as the makeup it's taking off. Good makeup removers should remove makeup quickly and thoroughly, should not clog pores and should not leave any residue on skin.
Some people prefer makeup removal wipes, which are easy to use and convenient to carry. According to TotalBeauty.com, some of the most popular products include Noxzema Clean Moisture Makeup Removal Cloths and Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. An added benefit of makeup removal wipes is they can be used anywhere, without needing water or any additional supplies.
People with sensitive skin or sensitive eyes benefit from makeup removers that are gentle on the face and do not cause irritation. Some people also prefer makeup removers without any added fragrance.
To remove stubborn or waterproof makeup, TotalBeauty.com recommends a product such as Clinique Take The Day Off makeup remover as a good choice. This formula removes eye makeup quickly and gently, and is not oil-based so it does not leave any residue. Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action eye makeup remover is a similar recommended product.
People with dry skin might prefer a cream or lotion-based makeup removal product. TotalBeauty.com says Physicians Formula makeup remover lotion does a thorough job of removing makeup while simultaneously moisturizing the skin.
Oil-based makeup removal products are another option. These products are especially thorough. One example of an oil-based makeup remover that works for all skin types, according to TotalBeauty.com, is MAC Cleanse Off Oil.
