One of the hardest things about wearing makeup isn't the act of putting it on -- rather, it's the process of taking it off.

While there are a million different face wipes, eye makeup removers, gels and oils for eliminating every last trace of our foundation and mascara, few of them actually do the job without making it feel like a, well, job.

Here are some of our tried-and-true favorites:

Simple Kind to Eyes Makeup Remover Pads - $6

Removing eye makeup is notoriously hard, but it doesn't have to be. These Simple eye makeup remover pads are gentle enough on your eyes so that you don't feel like you're rubbing and tugging on your lids. They also don't leave that gross sticky residue makeup remover pads sometimes leave behind, so feel free to use them on both your lids, brows and lashes.

Lancome Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover - $30

I've been using this Lancome makeup remover for as long as I can remember, and for good reason: it's awesome for sensitive, breakout-prone skin. While it's meant to be used as an eye makeup remover, I use it all over my face for a deep, deep clean.

The Original MakeUp Eraser Makeup Remover Cloth - $20

If you're not a fan of using disposable wipes and cotton pads on your face, try a towel especially made for makeup removal! The MakeUp Eraser towel only needs warm water to help bust even the most stubborn concealers. It's reusable, too, which means you'll totally save money long-term.
