Today’s market is flooded with so many products, sometimes we get overwhelmed by what’s out there. So let’s go over some basics for the eyes, namely a good quality eye makeup remover.

First of all, choose well, because not all products are alike, and just because it’s cheaper doesn’t mean it’s good. Like my mom always used to say, “You get what you pay for.” 

Medical researchers tell us that the skin around our eyes has fewer sebaceous glands and less collagen and elastin than skin anywhere else on our face. This means that the skin around our eyes is the thinnest and most delicate skin on our face. As people age the fat pad beneath the skin diminishes, which causes that delicate skin to appear even thinner with a hollowed-out look under the eyes. Our eye area skin needs a little extra attention.

So when you go to look for a good eye makeup remover, try to get an oil-free formula. That way there’s no residue to get into your contacts or smear your makeup if you’re applying it right afterwards. Look for cleansing agents that dissolve oils and trap soil. Use those nice little round cosmetic pads that you can find anywhere instead of cotton balls or tissues. Using them with a quality oil-free eye makeup remover will get everything off, including waterproof mascara, without pulling on that delicate skin around your eyes.

You also want the remover to be suitable for sensitive skin, fragrance-free, ophthalmologist tested, non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic.

In the past I have always used an oil-based eye makeup remover with things like mineral oil, etc., in them. But for the last few years, I switched to oil-free and absolutely LOVE it! It makes everything come off so smoothly and easily, and I don’t have that black smeared-eye look anymore. Ha!

Message me if you want to know what I use and recommend. I’ve tried quite a few and yet I keep going back to my one favorite. It’s a best-seller for a good reason!
