The simplest way to remove eyelash glue is with a simple makeup remover. Just put some makeup remover on a cotton pad, place it on your closed eye, and leave it there gently for a few minutes while the makeup remover dissolves the glue. The best makeup remover for the job is Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water is great for all skin types and doubles as a skin cleanser as well as a makeup remover.

How to Remove Eyelash Glue with an Oil-Based Cleanser

Another effective way of removing eyelash glue is with an oil-based cleanser. This method is generally more effective than using a makeup remover for the same reason that oil-based cleaners are often more effective at removing makeup. For an oil-based cleanser, we recommend Shiseido Perfect Cleansing Oil. Shiseido Perfect Cleansing Oil will do an excellent job at breaking down your eyelash glue as you wash your face with it and gently rub it on your eyelids in lukewarm water.

How to Remove Eyelash Glue with Oil

For a more natural method, you can remove eyelash glue with oil. Just about any food-grade oil in your house will do, but we recommend BetterBody Foods Avocado Oil. BetterBody Foods Avocado Oil doesn’t have any additives or anything that could hurt your eyes. Just put some BetterBody Foods Avocado Oil on a cotton pad and hold it to your eye for about a minute while the glue dissolves, and then you will be able to remove the eyelashes and wash your face.

How to Remove Eyelash Glue with Eye Cream

The final way to remove eyelash glue is with an eye cream. Any eye cream with oil will do, but we recommend RoC Retinol Correxion Under Eye Cream. For this method, you will need to put some eye cream on your lash extensions and let it sit for a minute or two to let it dissolve the glue; then, you can remove your lashes and wash your face.
Removing eyelash glue can seem like a challenge, but any of the products or methods listed here will be able to remove eyelash glue with ease, no problem. You can even use products already in your own home.
If you have one that you already know works, then the lastest way to remove eyelash glue is with makeup remover, but this method may not always work, so the next fastest would be with an oil-based cleanser or by steaming in the shower.
No, Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water is not tested on animals. The Garnier brand is completely cruelty-free.
No, you need to rinse Shiseido Perfect Cleansing Oil with water. Simply putting it on a cotton pad and rubbing it on your face without rinsing is not an option.
BetterBody Foods Avocado Oil only contains avocado oil.
No, RoC Retinol Correxion Under Eye Cream does not have an expiration date. Products without expiration dates don’t require them.
