5 Makeup Removers to Check Out
La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser, $23.99
If you're familiar with cleansing butters, this is sort of similar but packaged in a much more hygienic way. The Dermo-Cleanser is a thick cream that you massage all over your face to dissolve your makeup, but unlike a cleansing butter this doesn't need to be rinsed or become activated with water. All you need to do is grab a cotton round and wipe away all the cream and makeup residue off your face. I find that the Dermo-Cleanser works really well at removing face and lip products, but it often doesn't remove my eye makeup completely. Despite that fact I still think this is a very great product and it's incredible for sensitive skin.
Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water, $6.99
If you're a fan of the cult favorite Bioderma Sensibio H2O but you have a hard time getting ahold of it where you live, then you really need to check out the Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water. This is by far the closest Bioderma Sensibio H2O dupe that I've come across, and even the bottles look quite similar. Micellar waters are a lightweight liquid that dissolve dirt and makeup. The Garnier Skin Active Micellar Cleansing Water doesn't feel heavy, oily, and it dissolves makeup so well. It's even great for people with sensitive eyes/skin and such an easy product to use. All you do is wet a cotton round and just gently wipe it across your face.
Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser, $18
This cleanser has been a complete revelation to me! It is easily one of the best makeup removers I've ever tried and it might even replace my love for cleansing oils, which is kind of hard to believe. This is a light gel-like cleanser that you massage all over your skin and it gently melts away all your makeup. The Milky Jelly Cleanser is also incredible for sensitive skin and eyes, I personally haven't had any issues with this whatsoever. What I love the best is once you finish massaging the cleanser you add a little water and the formula becomes a light milky texture. The cleanser rinses away completely, takes off everything, and leaves your skin feeling very clean.
Superfacialist by Úna Brennan Vitamin C Skin Renew Cleansing Oil, £10.99
I remember hearing about this cleanser thanks to the British YouTubers that I follow, but I never thought I would come across this in the States. Luckily I managed to find a bottle of the Vitamin C Skin Renew Cleansing Oil at Marshall's one day and I had to pick it up. I'm a huge fan of cleansing oils because of how effective they are and this one is no exception. All you have to do is massage it on your face and all of your makeup will just melt away like buttah. Just like the Milky Jelly Cleanser, cleansing oils are also activated by water and they turn into a milky formula that will help cleanse the skin. This particular oil has been incredibly nice but unfortunately it isn't the easiest product to get here.
Nivea Desmaquillante Bifásico de Ojos, $55 MX pesos
I stumbled upon this biphase eye makeup remover one day while I was browsing the Walmart in Tijuana and decided to pick it up for around $3 American dollars. Biphase eye makeup removers aren't new, there's a ton of them sold everywhere in the world but I just haven't experimented much with them. The Nivea version is quite nice, I was pleasantly surprised by how gentle the formula is. All I do is soak a cotton round and hold it on my eye for a few seconds before I gently wipe away my eyeshadow and mascara. I find that this particular biphase makeup remover isn't greasy which I really like. I hope that Nivea will release this in the States sometime in the future since it's a very nice product.
