Our Guide to Makeup Removers

by Neutrogena

Real Talk

Have you ever washed a face full of makeup and thought you got it all off, but then your fluffy white towel or smooth white pillowcase showed otherwise? Yeah, we’ve been there, too. Black mascara smudges, traces of red lipstick and splotches of foundation can get left behind on your precious fabrics if you don’t use a makeup remover before cleansing.

Makeup remover gently breaks down all of your makeup looks, especially long-wear eyeliners, lipsticks and waterproof mascaras for clean, fresh skin every time. Makeup remover comes in a variety of types including makeup remover wipes, makeup remover oil and cleanser, eye makeup remover pads and eye makeup remover lotion. Keep reading to find out which formula is best for you.




Makeup Remover Wipes

Our award-winning Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes are the #1 bestselling makeup remover, the #1 choice of Makeup Artists and clinically proven to remove 99.3% of your most stubborn makeup. They’re ideal for most skin types and come in a variety of formulas for different skin needs. All it takes is just one step to thoroughly clean skin without heavy residue so there’s no need to rinse.


Eye Makeup Remover

If you want to focus on the eyes, a gentle yet effective eye makeup remover is a game-changing step in your nightly cleansing routine. Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover leaves no greasy residue behind and is safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. All you have to do is dispense a small amount of liquid on to a cotton ball or pad and wipe over eyes for instant clean.

For those with dry skin around the eye area, Eye Makeup Remover Lotion contains cucumber and aloe extracts to soothe and hydrate. Our pre-moistened Extra Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads are gentle for sensitive eyes.




Makeup Remover Cleansers

Maybe you prefer to use makeup remover wipes on the go and a makeup remover cleanser at home. We like your thinking!

Our foaming Fresh Foaming Cleanser does double the duty as both a makeup remover and cleanser in one to shave off minutes from your nightly beauty routine.
