You need to stop wasting money on special lotions that remove makeup. Here’s the stuff to use that will treat you kindly…

To remove eye makeup, just lather up a few drops of tear-free, hypoallergenic baby shampoo in a wet washcloth and softly dab each of your eyes. Then gently rinse the eye area with water. No mess. No sting. Just as baby shampoo works for removing eye makeup, so do baby wipes for removing face makeup. Baby wipes are especially good to use if you have sensitive skin.
