  • Cold cream, facial moisturizer or plain olive oil will work better than anything you've tried so far. The crap you bought may have stained her face, but oil would be a solvent for it and maybe have more hope of taking off the staining.

  • I used eye make up remover and some jumbo cotton balls. Once the oil dissolved most of the makeup we wiped the rest off with a wet wipe quite easily.
