Get These Natural Makeup Removers For A Clean Canvas!

Last Updated on April 2, 2024

Sleeping with your makeup on is considered a cardinal sin in the skincare world. So owning a good natural makeup remover is a must if you wear makeup.

Your facewash is simply incapable of getting rid of all makeup especially if you wear smudge-proof lipsticks or waterproof eyeliners. Hence, using a good makeup remover will help remove all traces of makeup easily so that you don’t end up with clogged pores and acne. 

I have rounded up 6 best makeup remover options in India that have clean and natural ingredients and are cruelty-free too. Most of these are oil-based and hence, perfect for your daily double-cleansing routine too.

And if you wear makeup only occasionally, check out the DIY option at the end of this post.

Best Natural Makeup Removers in India

1. Forest Essentials Floral Makeup Remover

This is a non-emulsifying makeup remover made up of plant oils like jojoba, olive, wheat germ, sunflower and jasmine oil. It breaks down makeup so that you can wipe it off easily before proceeding to wash your face.

If you have sensitive eyes which get irritated with even the gentlest cleanser, this will be a great choice as a natural makeup remover since it is soap-free.

2. Zyna Purifying and Soothing Micellar Water

Made with some soothing ingredients like aloe vera, chamomile, rose and niacinamide, this micellar water can be a great alternative to drugstore micellar water brands.  You can use it with a cotton pad to wipe away makeup in a quick, fuss-free manner.

It is affordable and water-based making it a suitable option for all skin types.

4. Earth Rhythm Cleansing Balms

This is an emulsifying cleansing balm that makes makeup removal quite easy. The emollients like castor oil and fatty alcohols in it helps lift all dirt and makeup.

And when you add water, they emulsify making it easy to wipe it all away. I have tried the Matcha and Charcoal variants and found them both efficient at removing all traces of makeup.

And they have two more variants namely-Propolis and AHA glow. Give these a try if you a looking for an affordable cleansing balm to remove makeup or even everyday cleansing.

It contains some wonderful ingredients like organic cold-pressed oils of jojoba, argan, hazelnut and grapeseed along with calamine, kaolin and blueberry extracts. It is suitable for all skin types and emulsifies in contact with water.

6. Fiducia Botanicals Lavender Cream Cleanser

If you have dry skin, this lavender cream cleanser is a great pick to remove makeup or simply cleanse your skin every night. It has a creamy gel-like texture so I won’t feel heavy on the skin like some cleansing oils and balms tend to do.

 If you are wearing light makeup, you can probably skip a second cleanse too. This is one of the best makeup removers for dry or sensitive skin types.

DIY Natural Makeup Remover

If you are looking for a cheap yet effective natural makeup remover, a DIY solution is probably sitting in your kitchen/skincare cabinet. Yes, I am talking about plant oils like coconut, almond or olive oil.

Oils can breakdown even the most stubborn makeup items including waterproof mascaras and liquid matte lipsticks quite easily. All you have to do is apply a few drops of oil on your skin and massage it in a circular motion for 15-20 seconds.

This will melt away all your makeup which you can wipe off with a cotton pad or wet, warm towel. Follow up with your regular face wash and you are all set.
