Types of makeup removers for face and eyes

Face care, Skincare -

Makeup removers for face and eyes have become a must in the daily facial cleansing routine. We use them to remove makeup as it clogs the pores of our skin but also to cleanse the face before going to sleep. We should use them both in the day and night facial routine, thus preventing wrinkles, oxygenating the skin, providing luminosity and reducing the signs of fatigue and tiredness.

If you want to know the types of makeup removers that exist on the cosmetic market, their properties, their differences and what type to choose according to your skin type, we encourage you to keep reading this blog!

Types of makeup removal products

Our skin gets dirty every day and accumulates dirt throughout the day that is not visible to the naked eye and if we do not clean it we run the risk of pores becoming clogged and generating blackheads, pimples or even irritation of our skin.

The use of makeup removers is essential within the facial routine because they help to remove the remains of dirt, contamination or dust. There are many types of makeup removers on the market designed for different needs or skin types. There are makeup removers for the face, eyes, lips or for all.

Below, we name and explain some of them:

Cleansing gel

With this type of makeup remover, besides removing makeup and excess oil, the skin is cleaned in depth and the pores are decongested.

At Mediterranean Spirit we have a facial cleansing gel that is perfect for deep facial cleansing. Discover all its ingredients and properties! Cleanses, purifies, hydrates and removes makeup, it’s 4 in 1! Perfect for use as double cleansing. It also has a fresh spearmint aroma that transports you to Mediterranean landscapes.

It is suitable for all skin types (mature, dry, sensitive, oily, mixed, irritated or acne-prone skin) – you won’t want to use another one as soon as you try it!


Cleansing milk

Cleansing milk for makeup removal is usually used on sensitive or dry skin rather than on oily or combination skin because it does not dry out. It has the characteristic that it is lighter than other makeup removers.

Makeup remover balm

Like the previous one, it is not highly recommended for mixed or oily skin but it is recommended for sensitive or dry skin. This type of makeup remover is good for removing waterproof or water-resistant lipstick.

Makeup remover wipes

This type of makeup remover is very easy and convenient to use, especially if you are travelling. It removes makeup quickly, is non-irritating and some keeps the skin moisturised. They save time and are comfortable, but not all of them remove makeup in depth.

Cleansing oil

Cleansing oils have a double function, they remove makeup and condition the skin. They melt long-lasting makeup, trap impurities in the pores and leave the surface of the skin clean, soft and moisturised. The only thing you have to remember is that they need to be rinsed with water.

Micellar water

This cosmetic product is not really a makeup remover per se but helps to remove even waterproof makeup from the face and eyes. It helps us as a first step to remove make-up.

It is applied on a cotton pad and the makeup is removed until the cotton pads are clean. After this, don’t forget to tone your skin. You could also use washable and reusable discs, microfiber towels or vegetable sponges.

Two-phase make-up remover

It is very similar to micellar water because it removes waterproof make-up but it contains a mixture of makeup remover and oil.

Foam makeup remover

This type, besides cleaning dirt, dead cells and removing excess sebum or oil, purifies, refreshes and nourishes the skin. On the market there are specifics for different types of skin.

How to cleanse and remove makeup from the face with Mediterranean Spirit Micellar Gel Cleanser?

You should perform a facial cleansing routine both during the day and at night. But you might ask yourself why? Because even if you’ve done a pre-sleep cleanse, your facial skin still generates excess sebum.

Here are the steps to follow to cleanse and remove makeup from your face with our micellar facial cleansing soap / gel:

  1. Apply the necessary amount on the face and massage into a good lather. Rinse with plenty of water.
  2. For best results, use daily in the morning and night.
