The Best Makeup Removers By Skin Type Posted on 10 Jun 19:37

We all want makeup to stay on forever… until it comes time to take it off. Sometimes the products we love take a little elbow grease to get off, and that is why finding the right makeup remover is just as important as finding the right makeup.

If you have oily skin opt for cleansers that will fully remove all your makeup so it doesn’t clog and enflame your pores. Rumor has it that Tarte’s Rainforest Of The Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel is great on oily skin, and removes even the toughest waterproof makeup. If you want your cleanser to remove the day’s makeup but are worried about it aggravating your oily skin, choose a cleanser that won’t strip you of your natural oils (which in turn sends your body the signal to produce even more oil). 100% Pure’s Blood Orange Cleansing Balm, for instance, uses great ingredients like organic coconut and olive oils to cleanse the skin without dehydrating it and throwing it out of balance.


If you have “problematic” or combination skin look for cleansers with soothing and effective ingredients to calm or cure your skin. Tatcha is known for using great ingredients, such as camellia oil, which removes heavy makeup without damaging the skin. Try it out for yourself in Tatcha’s Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil. Or give an inexpensive drugstore favorite a whirl; Garnier’s Skinactive Micellar Cleansing Water has incredible reviews claiming to be gentle enough for sensitive skin, while also removing stubborn eye makeup!


And Lastly, if you have dry skin choose a makeup remover that acts more like a moisturizer. An inexpensive but effective option is e.l.f.’s Hydrating Gel Melt Cleanser, which utilizes Argan oil and Rose Seed Oils to help moisturize the skin. For a multi-tasking alternative that feels luxurious, try out RMS Beauty’s The Ultimate Makeup Remover Wipe, which is as good as it sounds. The simple cleansing wipe’s only ingredient is organic coconut oil, and does what it promises by melting away stubborn makeup while also nourishing the skin. Great for someone who is looking for a natural makeup-removing option, or likes the convenience of face wipes for travel!
