I rub some of my Dermalogica cleanser around my eyes when cleansing, that gets rid of most of it, and then I use Clinique Take the Day Off afterwards.

I used to use Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil. It works well for me. Ever since I got to the UK, I started using Simple’s makeup remover. That doesn’t do justice. :/ I’m in search of the cleansing oil here. I didn’t see any at the counter here 🙁

I use Boots Soothing Botanics Eye Makeup Remover. Wonderful stuff, $6 at Target. This stuff removes even MAC Liquidlast with no problems. And doesn’t leave a film behind, even if I have my contacts in when I take of my eye make up.

I have to have something oil-based to get all that crap off! I used to use Neutrogena’s oil-based eye makeup remover, I forget what it’s called. I’m currently using baby oil gel, and I love it. It works amazingly, doesn’t leave film behind, and since it only takes a teeny bit, my ($2) bottle will last me forever!

Right now I’m using an Avon cream makeup remover, I use a cotton pad to wipe it off and then cleanse with my normal cleanser. If I just use regular cleanser to remove eye makeup, it never removes all my mascara even though it’s not waterproof mascara.

I use a face cream from Slovakia that I use as a facial and hand moisturizer. I find that using lotion often gets all of the makeup off really easily, and it keeps the skin around my eyes healthy and fresh.

Clinique take the day off remover
then wash my face
then use Bioderma(French thing)cleansing water if there is any makeup left under my eyes or around my nose

I prefer oil-based waterproof remover. I find that compared to normal cleanser remover, the so-called “oil-free” cleanser wipes out makeup faster without all that tugging. Right now, I’m also using Neutrogena Remover Cleansing Towelettes. One sheet is enough for the whole face since I don’t put powder all over my face. They work wonder!

Cetiphil daily face cleanser takes my makeup of great even if its a long lasting eye product but if Im wearing waterproof mascara then I’ll use maybelline expert eyes remover it leaves your eyes very moisturized then use cetiphil to wash off

eye make up remover (2 phase one)
mostly from a drugstore brand called essence cheap and does the job
sometimes the 2 phase one from MAC

I love Shu Uemura Oil cleansers and Lush Ultrabland, no need for a separate eye mu remover. Both do a great job!

I’m in love with philosophy’s purity cleanser. i used to use just about everything that everyone else has listed here (lush, mac wipes, clinique oil, etc.), but always needed to wash my face after removing my eye makeup, as well as use toner to make sure that absolutely everything was gone before i moisturized. since being converted to the purity cleanser, i can wash my face once (including the eye area! it’s super gentle on my ultra-dry and ultra-sensitive skin!) and have absolutely nothing show up on my toner cotton balls!! philosophy’s purity is from heaven, i swear.
