Thanks for this. I bought some about a week after you posted this and I really like it. And it does gently cut thru the strong waterproof mascara I use. Not super fond of the smell of it but I do really like it.

I also don't care for the micellar water, it doesn't remove mascara very well and I don't wear waterproof mascara either.
I love love love this product! I just wish it weren't so expensive. Every time I finish a jar, I resolve to switch to something more affordable (like the Garnier micellar), but I always end up going back to the Take the Day Off Balm.

I love hemp seed oil for my entire face, including waterproof mascara. It's also non-clogging, rated at 0.

I've tried several high end makeup remover balms and the best one is Pond's makeup remover balm. It's new and does a better job than the expensive ones. Even removed eye makeup better than anything I've tried.

I've been using Manic Panic Dream Remover for years. It does the job and then some. At $10.50.

For those of us who care, it is cruelty free, and vegan. It's a good product sold by an ethical, women owned business.

Iím loving the Clinique Take the Day Off line. I used the lid, Lash and lip wash and let me tell you, that stuff works in one swipe. No tugging, pulling, burning or leftover makeup on the eye. Iím very impressed with this product. Iíve used plenty of eye makeup removers and wipes and hated all of them. Burning eyes, lost lashes and still black makeup on my rag after following up with cleanser. Ugh.

I also use the TTDO cleansing oil which is pretty good.

I have to also second the DHC cleansing oil. Itís thicker than the Clinique oil and does the job nicely.

I don't have the muscle memory of how to do it because I never wore makeup when younger. I have some liquid eyeliner, but I'm having a heck of a time when I mess up because it just WON'T COME OFF.

I end up looking like an aging goth for the next few days.

A friend told me to use micellar wipes, but those aren't doing the trick. What's the best makeup remover?
I like micellar water combined with a reusable makeup removing pad. I leave it resting on my eye for 20 seconds or so. I also double cleanse with an oil and normal cleanser.

Micellar water and regular cleanser usually do the trick. But oil cleansing can dissolve anything stubborn, so I may use all 3.

I love these pads, they work really well to cut down time and effort to remove stuff. https://www.amazon.com/Sinland-Micro.../dp/B07CPM944X
