Can we just talk for a second about how amazing it feels to wash the grime off your face after a long day of working hard and trying to look presentable? To me, there are few better feelings than washing off dried-out concealer and flaky mascara — but, to make this nightly ritual a treat rather than a chore, the perfect makeup remover is key. Ahead, I’ve rounded up the best new makeup removers that will pamper your skin while it takes everything from waterproof eyeliner to matte lipstick off—read on to find your face’s new best friend.

Eye Makeup Remover from Bobbi Brown

For a spa-like experience, swipe on Bobbi Brown’s Ultimate eye makeup remover; it’s super-soothing with rosewater and aloe vera.

“Just Release Me” Dual-Phase Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover from Philosophy

For waterproof makeup, nothing beats this dual-phase remover, which gently but completely removes every last speck of color.

Eye Makeup Remover Pads from Yes To Cucumbers

Calling all allergy-prone ladies: these delightfully-scented cucumber pads will take off every speck of eye makeup without irritating to your peepers in the slightest.

Magic Mitt from Jane Iredale

Does everything make your face break out? I have the solution for you, and it isn’t a cleanser at all, but a high-tech microfiber mitt that uses only water to gently remove the day’s makeup, leaving skin’s natural moisture balance intact.

Acnedote Clean Treat Towelettes from Alba Botanica

If you’re acne-prone, I love these soothing yet astringent towelettes, which use a combination of willow bark extract and salicylic acid to cleanse and clear skin without leaving it overly dry.

Magic Wand for Lip & Eye Makeup Remover from Dinoplatz

For perfecting your makeup as you apply it (we’re looking at you, tricky cat eye liner), nothing beats these nifty little swabs, which are already loaded with remover to ensure that you remove only the smudges and not your expert swoop.

Makeup Remover from S.W. Basics of Brooklyn

When I travel, I love packing this tiny jar of goodness into my bag: a mix of only three ingredients (jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, and olive oil), it’s incredibly effective for being completely pure.

    I really like your blog but the slideshow way of posting is not the best. Most of the time I give up reading the post in the middle of it, because it takes a lot of time to open the slides one by one and it’s not very practical and user friendly, especially when reading on a mobile. I don’t read a lot of your posts exactly because of that even though it may interest me. It would be so much easier if the whole content of the post was in one page and all I need was to scroll down.
    Just want to tell you that 🙂

      Thanks for the feedback Julie. We definitely work to format each post in the way it works best for the content, but of course always want it to be user friendly too, so hearing feedback like this is helpful as we continue to update the tech and hopefully make it faster and more usable. Stick with us and feel free to keep weighing in!

    After using make up removers for the last 20 years I would love to share that the best I have found recently is pure coconut oil 🙂 It’s cheap, a jar lasts for ever, and it removes full eye make up effortlessly + it moisturises your eyelashes.

      That is my new all purpose cleanser plus moisturizer. I made a sugar and coconut scrub that is just heavenly!
