Wear & Wipe: 4 Tissue-Off Makeup RemoversMay 02, 2016
It’s late at night and you’re cozy in bed about to get some much needed shut-eye. Naturally, getting up to remove your makeup is the absolute last thing you want to do. We’ve all been there. You ask yourself: What’s the harm in letting it slide…just this once? As it turns out, this step is not one to skip in your nighttime routine. Going to sleep with cosmetics on your skin can clog your pores which leads to blackheads, breakouts, and other blemishes. That alone should muster enough motivation to pull yourself out from beneath the covers and give your face a quick clean. What’s more, the four tissue-off makeup removers below only require a wipe!
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser
If you find removing your makeup each night a tedious process, you’ll want a do-it-all product that’ll save you time without sacrificing a clean face. This multi-purpose cleanser from Garnier removes makeup—waterproof mascara included— while cleansing and refreshing your skin. Thanks to the dirt-trapping micelle technology, the water just requires some gentle swipes to remove makeup and other impurities from the skin’s surface, so there’s no need for harsh rubbing, which can aggravate the skin.
Garnier All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser, $8.99
L’Oréal Clean Artiste Eye Makeup Remover
Since the best eye makeup doesn’t budge during the day, a good eye makeup remover when you’re ready to remove it is a necessity. This eye makeup remover from L’Oreal is safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers and its oil-free formula leaves a luxuriously soft, fresh sensation on your skin without a greasy residue.

Lancôme Eau Fraîche Douceur
Another formula we love that uses micelle technology is Eau Fraîche Douceur from Lancôme. It helps to remove long-wearing face, eye, and lip makeup without the need to rinse—saving you time and energy before bed. Your skin will feel soothed and your pillowcase won’t be mascara-smeared come morning.
Lancôme Eau Fraîche Douceur, $38
Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover
This nourishing tissue-off makeup remover from Urban Decay helps to remove makeup with serious staying power. The creamy gel helps moisturize and revitalize your skin. Apply to tough-to-remove makeup and then gently wipe off with a tissue.
