As total product junkies, we tend to spend a lot of time putting stuff on our faces. So at the end of the day, a good makeup remover is just as important as the makeup we're taking off.

When choosing which makeup remover is best, we always look for three main characteristics: It takes off everything in one swoop, it won't clog pores and won't leave gross, oily residue on our beloved pillowcases (so not good for the complexion). And it appears that TotalBeauty.com readers feel the same. They chose these 20 eye makeup removers, micellar waters, cleansing waters and makeup-removing wipes as the best of the best for everything from removing raccoon eyes to keeping skin fresh and clean.
