Best makeup remover for oily skin

Last Updated on November 6, 2021 by yangandbeyond

So which is the Best makeup remover for oily skin? Is removing makeup with a makeup remover really necessary? Well, They say “it’s not the make-up that gives you breakout or causes clog pores, but it’s the residue of the product left behind when not removed thoroughly”. 

Yes, washing your face with a face wash or taking off your makeup using makeup remover wipes alone is not enough to get rid of all the makeup products from your face. To get makeup residue off, you’ll need to invest a little time and a good makeup remover. If you have oily skin, this helps lower the chances of breakouts. 

Here are some best makeup removers for oily skin that I personally love and recommend. 

Garnier micellar oil-infused cleansing water :

Best makeup remover for oily skin

Starting with Garnier micellar oil-infused cleansing water– This is the best makeup remover for beginners and even professionals for daily use. It removes makeup (even waterproof) in a few wipes and doesn’t leave any oil traces on the skin. Priced at Rs. 225 for 125 ml, it is a good makeup remover to invest in (Considering the price point and the way it works) Garnier micellar oil-infused cleansing water is also, dermatologically tested & suitable for all skin types.

Face shop makeup remover oil:

In my list for some Best makeup remover cleaning oil, Face shop makeup remover oil stands first. Priced at Rs. 1190, this cleansing oil is enriched with rice extracts, rice bran and jojoba oil dissolves and eliminates heavy makeup, dirt, and impurities skin feels softer, smoother, and looks bright and refreshed. The price point is a lot, as compared to Garnier makeup remover, however, it is completely worth it. I have written a whole dedicated review blog post on the Face shop makeup remover oil. Read here.

Lotus Make Up Bi Facial Waterproof Makeup Remover:

Lotus Make-Up Bi Facial Waterproof Makeup Remover is something I recently started using it. It is priced at Rs 299 for 100 ml. It is a super gentle oil-free makeup remover and works effectively to remove waterproof makeup

Key Ingredients:

Cucumber: Keeps skin cool, hydrated, and calms from any irritation.

Witch Hazel: Acts as an astringent to help shrink your large pores, soothe skin and reduce inflammation.

Aloe Vera: Contains antioxidants and high anti-inflammatory properties. It helps treat skin burns, acne, and dry skin.

How to use makeup remover?

Pour the makeup remover onto a cotton pad, press the cotton pad gently for a few seconds, wipe away all your makeup in one go. Wash your face once removed the makeup.

Alternative to makeup remover?

Times, when you run out of your makeup remover, you can try Vaseline or coconut oil. However, I suggest using coconut oil or vaseline to take off just the eye makeup and lipstick, and not the entire face makeup if you have oily and acne-prone skin. The thick consistency of the oil tends to leave residue and clog pores in the long run.

So, these were a few Best makeup removers for oily acne-prone skin that I had tried and absolutely love. What’s your favorite makeup remover? Let me know in the comments below 🙂
