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 8 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.

2. 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.
3. 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. Greenie Mill Hemp and Tamanu Cleansing Oil
If you looking for the best makeup remover for oily or acne-prone skin, this will be a great pick. It is an emulsifying cleansing oil with neem and tea tree oils which work great for acne-prone skin as we all know.
Sue this cleansing oil as a first cleanse to remove makeup and dirt without strippign away the natural oil. It is also available in 2 more variants- calendula and chamomile for oily/sensitive skin and lemon and coffee for dry skin type.
5. Forever Earth Antipollution Deep Cleansing Oil
This everyday cleansing oil is made with nourishing, antioxidant-rich oils making it suitable for sensitive and irritated skin. You can use it as the first cleanser in your evening routine to deep cleanse your skin and remove makeup.
This too emulsifies in contact with water which makes it easy to clean off.
6. 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.

7. Raw Beauty Wellness Berry Much Balm
This cleansing balm from Raw Beauty with a gorgeous lavender hue (naturally derived folks!) is yet another great cleansing balm to use as a makeup remover.
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.
8. 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.
I have tried this plenty of times and it is one of the best eye makeup removers you could use. If you wear makeup occasionally or ever run out of your favourite makeup remover, definitely try out this DIY makeup remover hack.
You can even try jojoba or castor oil or perhaps make your own DIY makeup cleansing balm by mixing these oils with some melted shea or mango butter.
