I use the Superdrug brightening hot cloth cleanser and have done for years, I have strayed to others but have always came back to this. It does a good job at removing my make up and also cleansing without make up too. I always remove eye make up / mascara first, I have extremely sensitive eyes and have tried so many eye make up removers but the all made my eyes red, sore and dry including micellar waters. I recently discovered Nivea micellar gel and it’s brilliant first eye make up remover product that I have tried in years that doesn’t aggravate my eyes at all
I use a combination of LE cleanse and polish, am elemis cleansing balm and Balance Me smooth cleanse and smooth balm, all of which I use with a Muslin cloth and hot water. I don’t use miscellar waters, I don’t rate them at all.
@SimonBridges micellar water is water with oil drops suspended in it. Basically feels like water though. Very good for getting off make up, use on a cotton pad. Superdrug do one in their own brand and it’s cheap. I use either micellar water or a cleansing oil (depending on how I’m feeling) for make up removal and cleansing.
Another vote for coconut oil! Melts off make-up, just massage on, leave for a bit and wipe off gently with a hot cloth. Even takes off mascara. (Or any simple oil to be honest - almond oil is also good. Don't waste a really expensive one as you'll be wiping it off not letting it sink in)
