Sleeping with makeup on is probably the biggest no-no in skin care. In fact, even a trace of makeup can clog your pores and cause breakouts while you snooze, which is why it’s so important how you go about removing all of your makeup.

From cleansing balms to micellar waters, here are five of our go-to products for effective makeup removal.

Dermalogica PreCleanse Balm $45

Consider this balm if you’re a fan of double cleansing. This oil-based formula melts even the most stubborn makeup off, and when water is added, it emulsifies into a creamy lather to remove excess grime and sebum. It even comes with a silicone mitt to indulge your skin in a mini massage. The result is squeaky clean skin.

Girl Undiscovered Under the Waterfall Crystal Cleansing Water $42

If you’re wondering why French women always have enviously perfect skin, the answer is micellar water. This multitasking makeup remover cleanses, tones, and soothes skin. Not only that, Girl Undiscovered features powerful rose quartz and citrine crystals to their impressive list of all-natural ingredients to help calm and revitalize skin.

TONYMOLY Naturalth Goat Milk Cream Foam Cleanser $18

For anyone who cares more about their skin than the latest miracle ingredient, it’s time to turn to a tried and true ingredient: milk. Milk is filled with nutrients that soothe and eliminate redness — TONYMOLY milk cleanser is made from raw goat milk extract and will gently nourish the skin while thoroughly cleansing it.

Julep Love Your Bare Face Detoxifying Cleansing Balm Stick $28

With an easy twist-up stick, this cleansing balm is portable, compact, and doesn’t skimp on quality ingredients. Rice bran oils remove makeup and clear the pores while pomegranate enzymes give the skin a brighter glow. Skin is left supple from the rosehip oil, which provides long-lasting hydration.

Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Dissolving Spray $26

Using only three ingredients, this dissolving spray removes the toughest, most long-wearing formulas (even waterproof ones!). A spritz here and there and your face will be makeup-free and primed for the next step in your nighttime routine.

Endurelash Organic Eye Makeup Remover Cloth $25.10

Want to remove eye makeup safely and gently without any product? All you need is this hypoallergenic reusable cloth and water to remove all makeup. Plus, you can feel good about using this as it lessens waste since you don’t need to use disposable wipes or cotton rounds. If you want a deeper cleanse, you can use the cloth with cleanser, too.
