No matter how tired you feel, you should always—say it with us—remove your makeup before going to bed! But you can't just use any makeup remover; you have to consider your skin type too, or you could end up irritating or drying it out.

Dry Skin

Formula to look for: A nourishing balm or oil is best. While both are good for your skin, we recommend going with the oil so that it will easily glide over your complexion.

This gentle cleansing oil can take on heavy-duty foundations and waterproof mascaras. Once you rinse it with water, there won't be any residue left.
