5 Drugstore Makeup Removers Under $15August 13, 2018
Makeup remover is the the secret weapon in any beauty bag. It’s your saviour at the end of a long night out, and the hero of every post-workout sweat session. When it comes to makeup remover, you have lots of options, ranging from classic makeup remover wipes to the buzzy micellar water that removes stubborn makeup with just a few swipes. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best makeup removers you can snag at the drugstore, from a French cult favorite that can remove literally anything to the wipes you’ll want to keep in every bag.
Peep our picks, ahead:
This all-in-one cleanser removes makeup while refreshing, and it’s super gentle on the skin. It’s great for stubborn eye makeup and makes taking off your makeup a breeze. You can also use this to cleanse the skin after a tough workout — which is a must to prevent clogged pores.
A French pharmacy staple, Bioderma lives in just about every makeup artist’s kit and on every beauty junkie’s vanity. Here’s why we love it: You can use it all over your eyes without the telltale micellar burn, and your most stubborn formulas (looking at you, Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink!) won’t stand a chance. Luckily, you can snag this on Amazon so a passport isn’t required.
Sometimes liquid cleansers aren’t convenient or ideal — especially when travelling. Enter the Garnier makeup wipe, a micellar-soaked cloth that does all of the great things your micellar water will, without the cotton pads and liquid. These leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed so you can remove your makeup on the go.
At $3 a pack, you can stock up on these without breaking the bank. Infused with vitamin E and aloe, they remove your makeup while also nourishing the skin. They’re also a little larger than normal wipes so you get an even bigger bang for your buck.
An oil and bi-phase solution, this product is specifically formulated to remove stubborn waterproof makeup. This easy-to-use remover contains orange, rice and papaya extract so it’s basically like taking your face on a mini vacation every time you remove your makeup.
