Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Raw coconut oil (yes, we swear) to wipe away any traces of makeup that are leftover from a full day of wear. It's organic and non-GMO, so you don't have to worry about any hidden chemicals.


    Plus it's super versatile! It can be used in the kitchen, on your hair, as a body lotion, and you can even give it to pets.

    Promising review: "Literally my EVERYTHING. This is the best value, 54-ounces is so much coconut oil. I use it everyday!! It's an amazing makeup remover. I use it as a shaving cream, lotion, hair mask occasionally, and a lip moisturizer. It's an amazing product." —lindsay hill

    Get it from Amazon for $18.

    2. A jar of Banila Clean It Zero cleansing balm that'll work without stripping your skin of moisture — and then and wash off as a foam. It'll carry away dead skin cells, grime buildup, and impurities.

    It's formulated with hot springs water, vitamin E, and vitamin C.

    Promising review: "Hands down the best makeup remover for waterproof mascara and long-wearing foundation I've ever used. It fully removes the waterproof mascara with no pulling or scrubbing, and that stuff is like cement. No eye irritation. Only one pass over my skin is needed to take it all off. No greasy residue left behind, either. It seems gentle enough, but I don't have super sensitive skin." —Meghan N Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $19.48+ (available in two sizes).

    3. The ever popular Makeup Eraser so you can stop spending so much cash on packaged wipes. This magic little cloth only requires water to get the job done. Yes, JUST water!

    When the cloth gets dirty, just pop it in the wash and it's as good as new.

    Promising review: "OMG! Why am I just now knowing about this product??? I bought this to save money from using the disposable makeup removers not believing it would actually work. This towel is nothing short of amazing! I wet it, then remove even the toughest long-wearing makeup in minutes. And when I’m done, I use hand soap to clean it. I’m so glad I found this. If you’re trying to reduce your personal contribution to the world’s waste, give up the makeup wipes and try this towel. You’ll thank me. Trust me." —Gospelqueen

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    4. A container of Albolene moisturizing cleanser, because continuously applying and removing makeup can leave your face feeling dry as heck. Albolene will replenish that moisture and prevent future dehydration and irritation.


    Promising review: "I've been using Albolene for years and will never use anything else. Truly the best at removing makeup without an overly greasy or harsh feel, and the product lasts a long time!" —HeatherG1970

    Get it from Amazon for $12.72+ (available in two sizes).

    5. A tin of The Body Shop's camomile cleansing butter for sensitive skin types, thanks to its creamy, soothing texture and vegan formula. It removes all types of makeup and is safe for those who wear contact lenses.


    Promising review: "It has a light, pleasant smell and just melts the makeup right off my face. I follow up with a gentle cleanser and it hasn't caused any break outs for my super sensitive skin. I love this stuff." —Lissie

    Get it from Amazon for $13.46.

    6. A bottle of Bioderma's micellar water to soothe your skin while also kicking makeup's butt. It's oil-free, great for sensitive skin, and doesn't require rinsing. And it basically trains your skin to stay moisturized.


    I use this makeup remover and swear by it. It takes my makeup right off, but doesn't feel heavy on my face. The "no rinse" claim is real. I can use it without washing my face afterwards and I feel no sticky residue.

    Promising review: "I have used this product for the last two years as it is the best micellar water I have found. I no longer 'wash' my face. Using this keeps my face clear, soft, and clean with no fuss and little expense. It removes my eye makeup beautifully (note: I use shadow, liner, and mascara) and my contact lenses last much longer because they don’t get coated with oil slicks. I no longer spend large sums on expensive facial care products. Another benefit is that my mild rosacea is hardly visible because my sensitive skin is being treated so gently." —DProf

    Get it from Amazon for $5.90+ (available in three sizes).

    7. An oil-based cleanser that'll dissolve sunscreen and makeup, cleanse inside pores, and reduce the appearance of blackheads. But don't worry about the oil, it will wash off completely and is great for hydration.


    Promising review: "I recently started following a Korean skincare regimen and was in search of all new products. I came across this cleansing oil and on the first night of use, I was completely blown away. ALL of my makeup was removed. My biggest concern before the purchase was that it would leave my skin oily, but that was not the case. My face felt nice and clean. I highly recommend and would give it 10 stars if I could." —Jessica Gutierrez

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    8. A container of Pond's cold cream cleanser, because it's a long-time favorite and dermatologist-tested. It'll infuse your skin with nutrients (it's 50% moisturizer) and takes makeup off with a cooling effect.

    Promising review: "I thought this was my grandmother's speed – not mine. But since I started using this, I get it. The texture of my skin is better and seems brighter. It takes makeup off easily with water and a washcloth. Love how my skin feels afterwards! I'm a new fan." —Cat in Ohio

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available as a pack of three).

    9. A bottle of BareMinerals cleansing oil so you can achieve full makeup removal, smooth skin, and zero dry spots. It's made for all skin types, too!


    Promising review: "The makeup just dissolves off so easy! Especially good for waterproof mascara. I was afraid I would start breaking out after using, but no problems at all! Leaves my skin feeling moisturized and healthy!" —Clasell

    Get it from Amazon for $22.92.

    10. A three-in-one Klorane cleanser, toner, and makeup remover to simplify your skincare routine. It's alcohol-, paraben-, and fragrance-free. Oh, it's also formulated from soothing cornflower water.


    Promising review: "I chose this because it is not full of glycerin (very sticky finish) or silicone (super slippery finish). This has the nice, clean texture of a simple floral water, is virtually scentless, removes make up quite effectively (including eyeliner), and doesn't leave behind an oily residue. I use it daily and this bottled has lasted me seven months! Best of all is the unique bottle and one-handed dispenser: you flip up the lid and simply press the cotton pad across the top. It pumps the liquid upward!" —Rainy Days

    Get it from Amazon for $24.

    11. An inexpensive cleansing oil that'll wipe away sebum along with traces of makeup. It'll foam up for a deep clean and won't require a second, backup wash.


    Promising review: "This wash is AMAZING at removing makeup. It squirts out like oil and immediately starts dissolving foundation, eyeliner, and even mascara. It's very gentle — so gentle in fact that you can open your eyes while you massage the oil into your face. No burning, no irritation. With a little water, it thickens up and washes away completely clean. I know this is intended to be followed by another cleanser, but often I stop after using just this because it gets the job done so well. Despite being oily, it doesn't cause breakouts and does not make your skin oilier." —K. Jenkins

    Get it from Amazon for $9.88.

    12. A pack of silicone brushes, because while your fingers are effective, using a brush can result in a deeper clean. Plus, your fingers absorb a good amount of whatever you're using, so in order to not waste product, a brush is an excellent substitute!


    Promising review: "I wear sunscreen daily, plus makeup, and I use a makeup remover cloth to remove most of it, but always double clean with a gentle moisturizing facial wash. I long debated whether to invest in a facial brush system for this second cleanse, but I did not want to get locked into a brush replacement routine. I also worried about germs on the brushes after repeated uses. I travel a lot and wanted something small and light with no chargers required. Still, simply using my fingertips or a face cloth didn’t seem enough. These silicone pads are perfect. They really suds up my cleanser and I feel like I’m removing every last bit of makeup and sunscreen. Plus, I can clean them periodically with a dip in hot water with a bit of peroxide." —Pushing 60

    Get a five-pack from Amazon for $7.99.

    13. Or a sonic rotating brush with four heads to get every ounce of makeup off. It'll do the work of removing dirt and environmental irritants, leaving your skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated. The charging base also doubles a stand so you can leave the brush out on your bathroom counter.


    There's a soft-bristled brush, a makeup-removing brush, an exfoliant brush, and a massager head.

    Promising review: "It leaves my skin soft and glowing after every use. The product worked well and I noticed that dead skin around my dark spots began to peel. I like using this after a night out wearing makeup because I do one quick wash without this and then one wash with the brush, and there is so much makeup left behind from the first wash that this brush gets off. The product holds up well and the brushes are easy to attach and clean." —durga s gupta

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    14. A pack of Innisfree olive oil-infused wipes that are both effective and nutrient-packed. They're gentle, fast-acting, and safe for your eyes.


    Promising review: "I’ve used these for about eights months now and it’s the only makeup remover I swear by. I wear full coverage foundation to hide scars so I typically have to go through at least three wipes to get my makeup off completely. I love how they smell and how they take off everything for me. With other makeup wipes, it feels like I removed everything, but then breakout later. With this one, I hardly get breakouts anymore. I feel like it gets the job done well. My skin feels great after." —Sapier
