Best Eye Makeup Removers

Guys there really is no excuse not to remove your eye makeup at bedtime now. I know when you're tired/drunk/can't be bothered it's a massive chore but there are a ton of awesome, quick and easy removers about now that make this boring bed time ritual less of a hassle.

Here is a run down of our favourite ones at the moment....

Almond Oil

That's right. Plain old, cheap as anything Almond oil. This one featured is £1.59 for 50ml.
 I was first introduced to using Almond oil this way from a friend of mine. After a night out she was massaging this over her eye lids, emulsifying all the eye shadow and mascara off in one smudgy mess with ease. I snatched it off her and found it was just plain, neat Almond oil. She said it got everything, even waterproof mascara off without dragging the skin and then simply just washed the residue off when she washed her face after as normal.
 She had learnt this from her mother (who is 69 and looks 45).
This oil is safe around the eye (unless you have a nut allergy). It is packed with fats, vitamin E and proteins. It helps moisturise and hydrates the skin. It won't block the pores and leaves the delicate skin soft and calmed.

Eyeko Mascara Off Remover Wipes

Wipes especially for the eyes have launched from Eyeko. In each pack you get 10 cotton wipes. Each wipe is infused with olive oil, aloe oil and grapefruit extract.  These remove all eye makeup easily without any residue left behind. These are ideal for travelling when you don't want to carry around a bottle of remover. Perfect for flights also if you only have carry on luggage and can't take your liquid remover.
 A pack of 10 wipes will cost you £6.00 which is a little pricey we feel. That's 60p per wipe and if you are using them every day they will only last you 10 days but good for a holiday.

Bioderma Crealine H20

You have probably seen us using this tons in our tutorials and if you read our digital magazine TWO Magazine then you will often see it featured in our 'What the Pro's carry' section.
 It's a bit of a cult remover simply because it is very gentle and suitable for even the most sensitive of eyes. 
This emulsifies heavy makeup off with ease and if you remove and re apply your makeup throughout the day then this won't irritate your already annoyed eyes!
Comes in a gigantic 500ml bottle or a more manageable 100ml or 250ml bottle.
 A little more tricky to get hold of but you can get it from from £4.50 upwards depending on the size you prefer. 

Sephora Targeted Eye Makeup Remover Swabs

These are genius. Basically like a regular cotton bud but the inner stick part is hollow and filled with eye makeup remover.
 Simply snap off the end with the blue line and the liquid will saturate the bud at the other end.
 You can then use to gently remove your mascara.
 The liquid also contains an ingredient called Procapil which helps with lash growth.
 These are also particularly good for touching up a messy eyeliner or a wonky lip liner!
 You can get these from Sephora for $9.00



  1. Coconut oil is also a great eye makeup remover - like almond oil it removes waterproof mascara and the oil even makes your eyelashes grow!

    1. Coconut oil is comedogenic. You don't want to put that on your face.

    2. I've been using it for months and it has only benefited my skin. It depends on the person I suppose.

  2. I really need to try the almond oil!

  3. I need to try the almond oil! I agree with Shanibandangle coconut oil works wonders too! xx

  4. I love the bioderma micellaire water! I use it evert single day! Mine says 'sensibio h2o', that's the only difference without the picture. Is it the same or is there a difference? Xx

    1. It's the same! They changed the name for the non-french-speaking countries.

  5. Que cómodas las toallitas desmaquillantes para ojos, ideales para llevar en el bolso.

  6. I'm a big fan of cotton buds, but those cotton buds sound genius!x

  7. The cotton buds look so cool! x

  8. Wow great blog, I never knew you could use almond oil on your eyes

  9. Going to sleep with makeup on is the worse feeling in the world to me. It makes me feel like cheap trash, LOL. Totally serious though.

  10. great products! Who knew about almond oil!? x

  11. I'm really intrigued to try the almond oil now! I use a L'Oreal product which removes lipstick as well - great if you've plastered on a bold lip for a night out. x

  12. Excited to try almond oil, I use coconut oil at the minute but almond is even cheaper!

  13. Almay also makes an almost identical remover swab. And it costs about half as much for 24 swabs instead of 20!

  14. Love the q tip idea.

  15. Those cotton buds are indeed genius!

  16. Ooh I've been using Castor oil on my eyebrows for a good few weeks now but I also bought Almond oil at the time and haven't used it yet. I'll be trying that out tomorrow!

  17. My favourite eye makeup remover is Caudalie's cleansing water. I've tried Bioderma's and, while I agree that it's good, I much prefer Caudalie's. It seems to do a better job than Bioderma for me.

  18. After using many kinds of makeup removers (Bioderma, La Rose Posey, Vichy etc) I came to try out Klorane Eau Florale demaquillante. I must say it is THE BEST think I have ever used. No eye irritation (at least for my eyes). You should try it. It also has an applicateur, so no product waste ;)

  19. I would really recommend The Body Shop's Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil - works beautifully and smells so good!
