I've always had long, dark lashes. Way back in the 60's I used to wear a lot of mascara and gave no thought to what I did to my skin while trying to remove it. Now that I'm in my early 60's, the years of tugging and scrubbing really shows around my eyes. Regretfully, I can't afford surgery. In an attempt to do no more damage, I rarely use mascara, only on special occasions, maybe a dozen times a year or so. I love the look, but getting it off is still an ordeal. Everything burns my eyes, even baby oil. Any ideas?

I don't wear makeup often but when I do I use baby shampoo (Johnsons)to remove my eye makeup. I have never had any problems with it burning my eyes. Make sure you use a good brand though, because I have used a generic brand that did burn.

Does baby oil remove all remnants of mascara? I have used petroleum jelly, which works well, but I still have residue on my lashes and I have to use a lot. Thanks

My teenage daughter and I use a product called Albolene. You can usually find it at Wal-Mart and Walgreens, and a container of it lasts us several months.

It rinses off much better than a lot of products and is really gentle.

I use a few drops of baby oil on a kleenex to remove my eye makeup and yes it even removes waterproof mascara. The baby oil also keeps the wrinkles away.

I too have been using baby oil for years. A small bottle at the dollar store lasts a long, long time. I put it on a cotton ball. Then I just wash my face as usual with cleansing clothes or I use Pond's Cold Cream.

I use baby wipes. I just rip a little piece off when I need. There is still enough of the wipe to clean the baby.
