Best Eye Makeup Removers for Sensitive Skin. Removing makeup is WAY less fun than applying it, especially when it involves rubbling your eyelids raw and shedding a few eyelashes in the process.
But, everything that goes on must come off.
So, to save your delicate eye area and the sensitive skin surrounded it some trouble, I’ve rounded up some of the best eye-makeup removers for sensitive skin.
Vaseline Original Jelly €4.69
Yep, you read that right. Vaseline. In a pinch, Mona Gohara, a dermatologist and associate clinical professor of dermatology at Yale School of Medicine, will use Vaseline to remove makeup. Explaining why, she said: “It’s light and lubricated, so the makeup slides right off without harming the skin.”
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water €7.69
Garnier’s formula attracts dirt like a magnet, which means less manual scrubbing. And if you still find yourself tugging, it might be time to swtch up your makeup for formula’s that are easier to remove. Meaning: go easy on the waterproof mascara.
Clinique Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Solvent €23.00
If you find that your eyes sting when removing makeup, it’s a good idea to a product that’s been tested specifically for the eyes. Sometimes, people will use a general makeup remover or toner on their eye, but the composition of these removers might be irritating. Clinique’s Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Solvent is ophthalmologist-tested for your sensitive eyes, so it’s 100% sting-free.
La Roche-Posay Sensitive Micellar Water €15.99
Avoid anything with harsh astringents, alcohol, or anything that requires a lot of tugging or scrubbing. This micellar water from La Roche-Posay can be used as a makeup remover for eyes and face. And it can even double up as a non-drying toner.
Caudalie Makeup Removing Cleansing Oil £18.00
Preservatives are added to cosmetics to prevent bacterial contamination. This 100% natural oil cleanser from Caudalie removes face and eye makeup without irritation.
