A Guide to the Essential Beauty Products
Eye-Makeup Remover and Face-Makeup Remover?
What to consider: Proceed with caution when using a basic makeup remover (meant for the face) in the eye area. "Stick to a product that has
been ophthalmologist-tested to prove that it's safe around the eyes," advises Audrey Kunin, an assistant clinical instructor
of dermatology at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. If you have only eye-makeup remover, avoid swiping it over
your whole face, as these products typically contain oils that could clog pores.
Bottom line: If your regular cleanser removes makeup and is gentle enough to use around the eyes, stick with that and ditch the separate products. Otherwise, use each for its intended purpose.
