It’s the one beauty secret we all know—removing your makeup at the end of the day is everyone’s best bet to avoiding skin problems. But because some days can get busy and we all can get lazy, here’s a list of fuss-free makeup removers that can remove your makeup in a jiffy.
1. Biore Cleansing Oil
Japanese beauty brand Biore is continuously gaining street cred for their no-fuss skincare products. Our favorite is their cleansing oil that thoroughly removes makeup (bye, waterproof mascara!) and even dirt and excess sebum! What’s special about cleansing oils is their ability to break down not just makeup but the oils and dirt that your skin accumulates throughout the day.
2. Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser
This cleanser from cult fave Glossier works like a simple, makeup-removing cleanser. Use it like you would any cleanser, the jelly texture draws out any makeup you used for the day. The formula is gentle too so you can easily make this the first step to your double cleansing routine.
3. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil
If you’ve got the budget to splurge on a makeup remover, opt for the Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil by skincare brand Kiehls. Gently dissolving makeup and impurities, this oil cleanser is made up of botanical oils like evening primrose oil, lavender essential oils, and is rich in omega-6 fatty acids. Aside from the makeup removing function, expect your skin to be soothed and moisturized from all the skin-caring benefits.
4. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
This cleansing water thoroughly removes makeup residue on the skin without the need for harsh rubbing. It’s made up of micelles (which are basically purified water, moisturizing ingredients, and surfactants) that dissolve makeup. It’s also great for sensitive to normal skin so you can use it on the eyes, face, and lips. Apply on a cotton pad and then onto the skin—your face base and any pigmented makeup you used will surely melt off.
5. Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes
Made with triple purified water, Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E, these gentle makeup wipes leave no residue on the skin. It’s probably the easiest way to take off your #FOTD. Swipe on and off and see your makeup removed in seconds. It’s also formulated with AqualockTM technology that lets each sheet fresh.
