This Cleansing Stick Is the Only Oil Makeup Remover That Doesn't Irritate My Eyes

Samantha Sasso

Before I lived alone, I spent most of my evenings complaining to my roommate about how irritated my eyes were from my favorite oil face washes. She would wonder aloud why I didn't just stop using them, but I couldn't - oil cleansing is, and always will be, a necessary step in my nighttime routine. I've been a religious double-cleanser for years now, and the benefits almost always outweighed the annoying side effect of blurry, irritated eyes.

Although I wasn't on the hunt for a cleanser to solve this problem (I'd all but given up on finding something gentle enough for my sensitive eyes), I recently discovered an oil-based cleanser that finally solves my big problem. Meet the Alleyoop Clean Slate ($28).
