The 10 Best Makeup Removers That Won't Irritate Sensitive Skin

As beauty editors, we've heard time and time again how incredibly important it is to remove your makeup before bed. It's one of these things you don't want to do every night, but you kind of have to. Long before I started this profession, this golden rule was embedded into my brain by my lovely mother. Even when you've had the busiest day and all you want to do is jump into bed when you get home, you need to take a few moments to remove your makeup. Even when you don't wear makeup, your skin has accumulated dirt and grime throughout the day, so it's essential to remove all that stuff so you won't wake up with clogged pores and unsightly breakouts.

I'm well aware of my insanely sensitive skin. To make it happy, I have to pay close attention to what I'm using to remove my makeup so I don't break out. I've fallen victim to fancy makeup removers full of harsh ingredients that cause pimples and strange rashes a few days after I use them. I also wear contacts, so I'm incredibly wary of using strong makeup removers near my eyes to avoid stinging. So I promise that these tried-and-true makeup removers for sensitive skin will do right by your skin. When removing your makeup is the last thing you do for the day, you can rest easy knowing that these gentle removers for your face and eyes will do right by you.
