Makeup Removers Without Aloe Vera


You have to take that gunk off your face sometime.

Why not make it as easy as possible?

All makeup removers are aloe free, cruelty-free and vegan


Gnarly Whale- there’s a brand name you won’t soon forget. Take off everything except your eye makeup with this natural remover. The ingredients list is so short I’m going to share it: Water, Coconut Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Citric Acid, Tocopherol, Grapefruit Seed Extract

Gnarly Whale Makeup Remover is best for:

  • Alcohol sensitive skin- it’s alcohol free!

  • Dye sensitive skin- no dyes!

  • Just the face, not the eyes


Micellar water is a double-duty powerhouse: it cleans your face without a need to rinse. Shake it then wet a cotton ball to wipe off any dirt or makeup.

MyChelle Quick Clean Micellar Water is best for:

  • Face and eyes

  • Gluten-free glamazons

  • Picky people- it’s free of GMO, parabens, petroleum, phthalates, silicones, sulfates, urea's, artificial fragrances, and artificial colors


My personal pick! I love Pacifica’s micellar water because it feels like it cleans and leaves no residue behind. I use it in the morning in lieu of actually washing my face (because I’m lazy) and my skin doesn’t know the difference! The best part? Seeing how dirty the cotton ball looks when you swipe it over a makeup-free face. It’s very satisfying.

Pacifica Beauty Cactus Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic is best for:

  • Your face only- due to the light fragrance I wouldn’t recommend swiping it over your eyes

  • A fresh pick-me-up- it boasts cactus and grapefruit water

  • Budget beauties

  • Pacifica loyalists


Can you say.. oui? This Made In France makeup remover gives your cleansing ritual that “je ne sais quoi.”

Planted In Beauty Luxury Certified Organic Makeup Remover Oil is best for:

  • Luxury lovers and big wallets

  • Face and eyes

  • Certification snobs- it has 4 third party certifications: Ecocert for Cosmos Organic Standard, EWG VERIFIED, Leaping Bunny and the Certified Vegan Trademark

  • Sensitive skin green beauties- it’s free from parabens, petroleum, GMOs, butylene glycol, phthalates, sulfates, DEA, TEA, MEA, silicones, formaldehyde, pesticides, alcohol, PEGs, artificial dyes, synthetic fragrances and preservatives


Prefer to skip an extra step and just take it all off in the shower?

Ethique Eco-Friendly Face Cleanser & Makeup Remover is best for:

  • Travel- because it’s a solid, it doesn’t count towards your TSA liquids

  • Penny pinchers- these last a looong time!

  • Environmentalists- this Aussie brand is on a mission to rid the world of plastic waste that are killing our fish. Bars come in biodegradable packaging.


Scrutinizing shoppers will appreciate its USDA Certified Organic status and that the bottle is glass. However: the label reads it has beeswax but the ingredients list on the page shows it has a vegan beeswax substitute.

Herbal Choice Mari Organic Makeup Remover is best for:

  • Face and eyes

  • Soy allergies

  • Dairy allergies

  • Gluten-free glamazons

  • Green beauties- it’s free from alcohol, fragrances, dyes, propylene glycol, phthalates, SLS, chemical, detergent, parabens and preservatives


You can’t get any simpler than S.W. Basics’ take on makeup remover.

S.W. Basics Makeup Remover is best for:

  • Purists- only 3 organic ingredients (sweet almond oil, olive oil and jojoba oil)

  • Face and eyes
