Mild Makeup Removers

Now that Beauty Week is over, here are some mild makeup removers to help wipe your makeup slate clean. These makeup removers are strong enough they will thoroughly remove all of the residue on your face from the day, but gentle enough they won't irritate your eyes causing redness and sagging skin. Makeup removers are also great for quick fixes for spot treating messes. Just dip a q-tip on them and you're good to go. Here are my top three choices:

This oldie but goodie has never irritated my eyes or my skin. It's a no frills, oil and fragrance free eye makeup remover that you can use all over your face, day or night. It's also super easy to take off; just rinse with water. This Clinique Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Solvent is $14.50.

Napoleon Perdis Foaming Makeup Remover, $25, is so cool! You can put it in the fridge to chill it. This foaming marshmallow-like makeup remover leaves your face feeling fresh and crisp. Use water if you like, or just wipe everything away with a tissue.

For one more,

Almay Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover Pads, $5, have been a drugstore bestseller for eons. These come packaged in a convenient jar filled with remover soaked pads. Just wipe and watch your makeup come right off. They are oil free so they won't clog your pores or blur your contact lenses.
