cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. put a tiny bit on some facial cotton and it takes off makeup like a charm, without stinging. just use it sparingly around your eyes

I have read coconut oil is great for removing makeup and bonus: it’s non toxic.

@glitter-girl:  +1.  Straight up oil is the best make up remover.  All you need to do to get the oil off is to use a wash cloth soaked in hot water.

I love clinique’s make up remover. It goes a long way and it’s totally worth the money IMO. I usually dab a little bit on a cotton ball and take my eye makeup off with it. Also, purity by philosophy is a wonderful face wash that leaves your face feeling soft, clean, and moisturized. I  have serious crazily sensitive skin and cannot use bars of soap, neutrogena, etc. Purity also cleans my engagement ring and my makeup brushes! I love the stuff!

I would be wary of coconut oil. That stuff is great for a lot of things, but is known to clog pores really easily and cause breakouts.

I love Lancome’s waterproof makeup remover.  Takes off waterproof mascara and eyeliner super easily.  Even have used it to remove long lasting 12 hour lipstick.

@Adeline4:  My HG is Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover. My eyes are sensitive and it never stings. Hint: the generic version from Rite Aid is exactly the same so if you want to save a few cents…

I use Johnsons baby oil then wash my face with a foaming cleanser. I never suffer from breakouts

@Aquaria:  That’s the liquid stuff in a blue bottle, right? If so, I swear by it as well, OP!

I second the Lancome. The stuff that’s separated into 2 layers and you have to shake before each use. It’s really gentle and the oil is probably good for that delicate eye skin.

Definitely Neutrogena Oil Free Make up remover cloths. They smell great, are good for my sensitive skin and I don’t feel like I need to rinse my face after. And it doesn’t sting my eyes.

@Adeline4:  I have always used baby oil. It works great! I always wash my face afterwards anyway so I’ve never had to worry about clogging pores or anything. It’s also cheap and my super sensitive skin has never broken out from it.
