Eye Make-up Remover

Have you found a good one? I've tried so many different ones (from store-sold brands to representative-sold brands) but they all have the same problem. I use them at night. I remove it thoroughly. But the next day...there's still enough residue that it makes my mascara smear under my eyes.

Help! Share your favorite, please!

  • I love the make up removing wipes from MAC, they work great and are good for your skin...they contain vitamins and minerals, as well as silicone, which has been proven to help fade scars.

  • Almay is my favorite, and I think I've tried them all (even the real expensive ones from Estee Lauder & MAC). Almay even removes my false eyelashes with almost no effort! I got it at Target.

  • I use the equate walmart version of the neutrogena. Not sure if I spelled that right. It is cheaper and works great.

  • The ONLY one I've ever liked, and will continue to use, is Maybelline Expert Eyes make up remover (the waterproof kind). I've tried what feels like just about everything else out there (most of them MUCH more expensive), but I always come back to this one. It's the only one that really seems to remove everything. Make sure to get the waterproof formula one though, even if your make-up isn't waterproof.

    It's pretty cheap, too!

  • Mary Kay eye make up remover. I swear by it. I remove the make up and then wash my face and don't have any residue the next day.

  • Have u tried good old baby oil to remove your eye make up? I used to use Mary Kay, but Baby Oil works just the same.

  • Neutrogena makeup remover wipes are awesome.

  • I just use a little bit of lotion. Although I've also used baby oil, olive oil, etc. It works just as well as expensive eye make up removers.

  • I found a face wash that is gentle enough to use around the eye area and it quickly washes away even my stubborn water-proof eye liner. It's called Pore Genesis by L'Oreal. It also smells AMAZING.
