Hi guys!
I need to find another makeup remover more effecient than the current one I use now because it takes age to clean my face with it then I would like to have your recommendation. What do you use guys and how long does it take for you to remove everything from your face (products such eye line, mascara, foundation and sunscreen, shadows). I use a Clarisonic Smart Profile that I really like with the Lancome's Creme Mousse-Confort to clean my face and before I have been using the Laneige's Multi-Cleanser for a while which worked great but was a little too harsh and abrasive for my skin. Sometimes I felt like it was burning my skin. For my eyes I use Estée Lauder's Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. The whole process takes around 3 to 4 minutes.

Among the ones I like, the SKII Facial treatment Cleanser is perfect for my sensitive skin but it's really too pricey and I can't afford it anymore then I had to switch for another one. Now I am on my 4th bottle of IASO Black Cleansing Oil which became my favorite one and I am about to buy a new bottle because it's really easy and fast to clean my face with it (even the most tenacious of water resistant eye makeup and smudgeproof only need one minute to be removed). However if you forget to shake the bottle before using it, it doesn't work well. Plus, it doesn't tighten your skin but it's not what it is for anyway and I have other skincare products to take care of that. I found this product through a youtube video . The one I highly don't recommend to you is the Silkygirl Hydra Clean which is the worst and most useless thing I have ever tried: it takes more than 15 minutes to remove everything with a big amount of it... It's just good enough to remove very light face makeup like blush and light colored eyeshadows but clearly not strong enough to remove eye makeup resilient to liquid such water, oil and sweat. There is only one good point: that thing will not damage your skin but since it even doesn't do its job why it should? It's a really cheap thing but it even doesn't worth the price anyway. I'd rather save some money and just use some water instead, it will do the same job.

I second using a cleansing oil. Mine is a DIY. My basic formula is 90% carrier oil and the balance is emulsifier. I purchase the emulsifier from Garden of Wisdom.

I like to wipe my eyes with a soft cotton pad and micellar water. I am currently using Bioderma.

The cleansing oil is a must for anyone that wears water resistant sunscreen and or full coverage foundation/concealer.

For eye makeup, Bifesta Eye Makeup Remover. This is the most amazing remover, takes off my numerous coats of resilient waterproof, oilproof Japanese mascara in 10 seconds without irritating my eyes or pulling lashes. I finally wake up with no traces of black smudges in the morning from the liner that creeps into my lashes and didn't 't get properly removed.

For face, Shu Uemura Ultime8 Oil and then followed by Shiseido Benefiance extra Creamy Cleansing Foam.

I wear full eye and face makeup daily and this routine leaves my skin clean and not stripped.

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Natural Lift and Sculpt Moringa Cleansing Balm ,It smells amazing and does an excellent job at cleaning my face thoroughly. You can use it overnight but I don't want to risk getting it everywhere as its quite greasy. Fantastic cleanser and worth the money.

Simple Micellar Water for face and Neurogena CVS clone for eye makeup. When I wear full foundation I sometimes use Oleda Baker's makeup remover in a jar that seems to be coconut oil and other oils. I don't see the point of spending a lot.

I use jojoba oil to remove eye makeup, tissue off and then I use my Monsia cleanser followed by the toner. This removes all makeup easily.

I love to use Coconut oil as a makeup remover!!
It is wonderful at taking off eye liner, eye shadow, mascara, foundation, etc and is wonderfully moisturizing. Just be sure to get an organic, cold pressed or unrefined coconut oil, usually available at your local health foods store, or grocery store.

Tatcha oil. It rinses clean with no residue. I've tried Nude and it left a film. Tatcha is also a cruelty free line.

Prior to this I used fresh soy and philosophy microdelivery which I was happy with but Tatcha oil cleanser is superior for removing makeup. I have combo skin too and the oil does not break me out.

I am currently using an Aveeno cleansing wipe which I find okay but not the best. I've tried Burt Bees makeup removing wipes as well in the past and they were okay.

With LRP Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cream I do not need an eye make-up remover.

I also use Simple Micellar Water and for me,it works on eye makeup as well and it doesn't sting my eyes. I sometimes use Huggies Unscented Baby Wipes(larger than standard makeup remover wipes,you get many more and and they are cheap).

Fist I use the oil of Evelom to remove the makeup. It smells not very good. But its function of cleaning is good. Finally I use my clean milk.

I use Bioderma Sensibio. It's really gentle. I've used cleansing oils such as DHC which worked nicely at removing everything as well. It takes me about 2 minutes.

I find L'Oreal Eye Makeup Remover the best.
They have it with and without oil. I personally like more the Oil-Free version.

Very Happy Bifesta is my favorite too. I also use Chanel eye makeup remover which is easier to buy.

I used a lot of cleansing oil, feel no big difference in makeup removing, but only in use feeling. Expensive product normally more comfortable and hydrating. Only DHC cleansing oil caused breakout.

"La Roche-Posay" Eau Micellaire, Peaux sensibles (sensitive skin). A friend recommended this and I love it!
I still use the oil cleansing method also. The oil cleansing method I love, but find it difficult to use if I haven't access to hot water -when travelling it is not always that easy to be able to shower or wash with hot/warm water.

I'm loving Garnier micellar these days. The waterproof one (blue lid) removes mascara well. No scent to it either and not too expensive.

At this point I am using the Bifesta sensi one but I am always on the look out for something better and more natural.
