I’ve tried both expensive and drugstore makeup removers, but honestly, sometimes I really can’t tell the difference between the two. My favorite formulas on both sides do the job and manage to remove any trace of makeup from my face (even the waterproof stuff). To save a few bucks, I always choose the cheaper option. There’s more money in the bank for the other skin care products I want to invest in.
Yes, I know some of the more expensive formulas can feel a little more luxurious on your skin and contain some pretty fancy ingredients, but let’s not knock on the drugstore. Many of them still care for the skin and do not pull it off bone dry. Furthermore, for many of us, makeup removal is just one step in the skin care process. Depending on your personal routine, you can add other cleansing and moisturizing creams and serums.
To prove my point, here are some of my drugstore favorites. Say goodbye to saving money and say goodbye to sleeping in your makeup!
