If you’re like me, you dread taking off your makeup at night and wish that leaving it on overnight wouldn’t ruin your pillowcases or your skin! I tried out a few popular makeup removers to help you find the best (and easiest) one. Check it out!

Biore Charcoal Cleansing Micellar Water, $6.49

Rating: 2/5 Stars

I’ll start with the good of this cleanser; its light, doesn’t leave residue, and takes off most makeup. The cons? It does require a few scrubs to take off matte lipstick, it doesn’t take off all eyeliner and mascara in one try, if it gets in your eye it does burn, and the extra step of having to use cotton pads/balls to apply is a pain

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes & Face Wipes – 25ct, $6.99

Rating: 3/5 Stars

This is one of the most popular makeup remover wipes. It does remove makeup, however, maybe it’s because I wear eyeliner and mascara, and tend to focus more on the eye section, but this wipe is not a favorite of mine. It has definitely burned when I’ve used it around my eye area. It has a lot of good reviews; perhaps Neutrogena’s fragrance-free option would be a better alternative for those with more sensitive skin.

Kiehls Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil, $32.00

Rating 4/5 Stars

This is such a great product. It’s a makeup remover and cleanser all in one, which makes you feel like you’re giving your skin some nighttime TLC and not just stripping your face. I sometimes even use it as a facewash because it leaves skin feeling so soft. Its lightweight, smells great, lasts for over a month (depending on how much you use it), and is even safe for the eye area. Win! Win! Win! The $30 price tag is a little too steep for me to keep it stocked as one of my skincare staples, but it’s definitely a five-star product.

Just The Basics Pre Moistened Facial Towelettes, $2.99

Rating: 5/5 Stars

These are my go-to wipes; they take off every bit of makeup, with just one wipe. They’re fragrance-free and they’re the least expensive option!
