You know that I love to bat a lash at the latest makeup trends, darling. So, it’s only fair that I divulge how to dispose of eye makeup with just one swipe. I read once that Dolly Parton sleeps with her makeup on, “In case I have to get up in the middle of the night,” but the rest of us don’t want to be caught in yesterday’s makeup the morning after. (Sorry, Dolly.) Here’s my list of the best eye makeup removers. Read it and you won’t be caught with raccoon eyes! Isn’t that the worst?
Best Makeup Removers for Women Over 50
Yes to Cucumbers Eye Makeup Remover Pads: If you want to remove makeup with just one swipe, try the Yes To Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes. These are so very gentle and hypoallergenic, of course. They are pre-moistened wipes that safely remove all traces of eye makeup thanks to Calendula, Chamomile, and Organic Cucumbers. Yes To Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes are 99% Natural Petroleum, SLS, & Paraben Free. Cruelty-free, too! Get them, HERE!
Ahava’s Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover: Ahava’s eye makeup remover is among the best I have tried. Truly gentle and yet oh-so-efficient at removing even the blackest of mascaras and eyeliners. Ahava’s Gentle Eye Make-up Remover is Hypoallergenic, Ophthalmologist tested, and worth every penny, at $19.50 for 4.2 oz. Purchase yours, HERE.
Ultra-Soft Eye Makeup Remover Pads from Neutrogena: I found this product in search of reasonably priced options for ineffective eye makeup removers. And, you can find them in any local drugstore close to your home. The pads themselves are soft and thick, offering up a plush, ready-to-go option for effective eye makeup removal. Promising to remove all traces of makeup, including waterproof mascara, Neutrogena’s Ultra-Soft Eye Makeup Remover Pads actually delivered and they didn’t break the bank doing so. Get them, HERE or at your local drugstore.
Ole Henriksen Face the Truth Gel Cleanser: Danish Ole Henriksen studied skincare and cosmetic chemistry in London before heading stateside to open his signature spa on Sunset Boulevard. He’s treated a long list of celebrity clients including Charlize Theron, Mathew McConaughey, and Christy Turlington. Thankfully, Henriksen’s star skincare is available to all of us; scoop up the Truth Gel Cleanser, HERE.
