One of the best ways to improve overall skin health is to properly get rid of leftover makeup, sunscreen and everyday dirt and grime from our faces. Having a reliable makeup remover in your beauty arsenal is a great way to ensure you always put your best face forward. Here are a few of the best makeup removers. —Jennifer Cox
Clinique’s Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm ($45) is a lightweight makeup remover that quickly dissolves eye and face makeup as well as sunscreens. The silky balm formula goes on easily and leaves skin feeling clean and moisturized after a long day.
The Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter from Drunk Elephant ($45 at Sephora) is a unique cleansing balm that transforms from oil to milk when in contact with water. It actually melts all traces of dirt, makeup, and sunscreen, and is even gentle enough to be used around your eyes. It is made with antioxidant-rich fruit extracts and oils to help soothe your skin.
The Gently Off Eye And Lip Makeup Remover (MAC Cosmetics, $25) has a dual-phase formula that removes all makeup, even waterproof products. The gentle, non-irritating formula with cucumber extract and Damask rose flower water refreshes the skin without having to rinse it off.
The Original Makeup Eraser Makeup Remover Cloth from Sephora ($26) is a 100 per cent polyester cloth that is antibacterial and ideally suited for sensitive skin. There are two sides to this magic cloth: a short-fiber side for easy wiping and a longer fiber side for exfoliating. And the best part is: One Makeup Eraser is equal to 3,600 makeup wipes and is reusable as well as machine washable up to 1,000 times!
