I use babyoil on a cotton ball.

Does baby oil remove all remnants of mascara? I have used petroleum jelly, which works well, but I still have residue on my lashes and I have to use a lot. Thanks

My teenage daughter and I use a product called Albolene. You can usually find it at Wal-Mart and Walgreens, and a container of it lasts us several months. It rinses off much better than a lot of products and is really gentle.

I use a few drops of baby oil on a kleenex to remove my eye makeup and yes it even removes waterproof mascara. The baby oil also keeps the wrinkles away.

I too have been using baby oil for years. A small bottle at the dollar store lasts a long, long time. I put it on a cotton ball. Then I just wash my face as usual with cleansing clothes or I use Pond's Cold Cream.

I use baby wipes. I just rip a little piece off when I need. There is still enough of the wipe to clean the baby.

Thank you Ladies! I sounds like baby oil is the good bet.

I use Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover. It is not expensive, leaves no oily residue, and lasts a long time.

Ponds makes one, too. It works well, but does leave a very oily residue. I have never used Albolene. I think I will try the baby oil. Thanks to all.

Avon's make up remover is the beat I've found and very cheap.

BJ: I don't know if you're aware of it or not, but Avon tests their cosmetics on animals. I saw a picture of a rabbit locked in a cage with just his head out a hole and they were putting eye make-up remover in his eyes to see if it was irritating. The poor animal was squirming and trying to get away and his eyes were horribly red and inflamed. That was the day I stopped using any cosmetics/products that are tested on animals.
