We only want the best makeup for the eyes as it is essential in making the perfect look for the day. However, we must remember that at the day’s end, eye makeup must be completely removed. This allows the skin around the eye area to breathe and to prevent the accumulation of oil and stubborn makeup. Here are few top eye makeup removers that are the beauty buzz these days, together with helpful tips on easy and effective eye makeup removal.


Neutrogena is one of the most popular eye makeup removing products these days. Women love this moderately-priced eye makeup remover, which is effective in removing makeup despite the absence of oil in the product.


Olay Eye Makeup Remover & Anti-Wrinkle Treatment

Olay’s eye makeup remover is not only effective but a great buy because of its low price. It is a cream and so is easy to apply around the eye area to dissolve the makeup. As soon as makeup is removed, the remaining cream on the eye area must be further rubbed to reduce dark circles and puffiness of the eyes.

Tips on how to optimize the use of eye makeup remover

1. Round-type cottons are a better option than cotton balls if only for their shape. You many take out the whole area with a single flat section. You must use Q-Tips when removing eye makeup at areas that are closest to the eye lashes.

2. Don’t clean both eyes with the same cotton. This is because if one eye is infected, the bacteria can be passed easily to the other eye.

3. While eye makeup brands these days are safe and hypoallergenic, those who suffer from conditions such as hay fever must select the right eye makeup remover. Those with hay fever should avoid using eye makeup remove that have chamomile in them.

This substance can cause hay fever sufferers to have a burning sensation around their eyes. This is because chamomile belongs to the same allergen class that causes one to suffer from hay fever symptoms.

Simply put, while moisturizing washes or even ordinary chemical-free soap and water can remove eye make-up, the beauty buzz these days is to take advantage of special eye makeup removers not only to remove stubborn makeup, but to make sure that the area around the eye is cleaned as gently and safely as possible.
