Oil Free Eye makeup remover is a CRUCIAL part of any skincare routine. It is what easily breaks down any water proof mascara or anti-smudging eye liners. Without eye make up remover you may find yourself rubbing the very delicate and thin skin around your eyes. The skin around your eyes is the first part of your face that will begin to show age. Don't help dry them out and damage your collagen during the cleaning process. What do you need to look for in a great eye make up remover?
Ingredients in Oil Free Eye Make Up Removers
A great eye make up remover will not only remove and breakdown your make up in general, but because it is specifically designed to be used on and around the eyes it is incredibly slick/smooth and even though it is applied with a cotton pad, it will glide over the skin effortlessly with minimal product. Wonderful Oil Free Eye Make Up Removers should cause very little to No eye irritation at all.
What ingredients should you look for to make sure the eye make up remover you are purchasing indeed will glide effortlessly and will breakdown your eye make up efficiently?
Firstly, you want to make sure your eye makeup remover has an element to breakdown the makeup. Most removers use a substance called Cyclohexasiloxane or some off spring of it (including Poloxamer 182 & 184). Cyclohexasiloxane is a cyclic silicon-based polymer that is designed to dissolve materials in a product.
Secondly, look for an ingredient that gives the product slick/smooth easy application. A common ingredient that will do it is Isohexadecane. Isohexadecane is responsible for the creamy, thick, but relatively non-greasy texture of alot of Oil- Free Eye Makeup Removers.
Oil-Free Eye Makeup Removers usually are dual action. Meaning the cleansing and smooth conditioning steps work together to breakdown and remove the product.
Eye Makeup Remover Top Picks
Mary Kay Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover
This product is so gentle and have yet to meet a makeup product that it cannot easily remove.
For $15.00 you get a 3.75 FLoz bottle that is designed to last at least 1 month but can easily be stretched to 2 months.
The Mary Kay Eye Makeup Remover is my top pick because of its super great breakdown and minimal product needed to get the job done.
Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover
This product is very gentle as well,however it does seem to cause very mild irritation to me my eyes, but only if I actually get some into my eye which can happen if I apply to much product on my cotton pad.
This products works very well, but I definitely use more of it during a single removal, than I do when I use the Mary Kay brand. For about $8.00 you get a 5.5 floz bottle that will last at the very least 1 month.
