Cleansing your face and removing makeup is an essential step in your skin care routine, but if you’re a woman over 50, you want a product that will be as gentle as possible to your skin.

  1. Philosophy’s When Hope Is Not Enough Omega 3-6-9 Hydrating Cleansing Balm (about $25 click to buy)
    This extra-moisturizing cleanser replenishes skin with omegas 3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids while cleansing in the morning or removing all your makeup at night. Incredible for dry skin—it won’t strip but works on restoring your skin’s natural lipid barrier instead.
  2. Noxzema Clean Moisture Makeup Removal Cloths (about $7.69 for 25 cloths click to buy)
    Don’t get nostalgic about using the updated Noxzema Original Deep Cleansing Cream unless your skin is oily. Opt instead for these alcohol-free, pre-saturated wipes with soothing vitamin E that are safe for the eye area. They even remove the most stubborn waterproof mascara easily along with all your face makeup and leave no residue just a soft, fresh face.
  3. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (about $4.10 click to buy)
    I have yet to meet a dermatologist who didn’t suggest this pH-balanced, low-lather face wash. Whenever I am faced with irritation, redness, or dermatitis (a definite con side effect of being a beauty editor and trying hundreds of products a week), this comes out of the cupboard.It’s great for vulnerable, dry, sun-damaged irritated skin, especially in the morning. You’ll have to add a warm, wet, clean washcloth to gently remove makeup though in the evening.
  4. Aveeno Positively Radiant Make-Up Removing Cleanser (about $5.97 click to buy)
    Of course, it’s Aveeno who makes this soap-free, soy-infused wash that won’t dry out your skin or promote irritation. The brand is known for its use of skin-calming botanicals. This cleanser removes all makeup gently but thoroughly, even water-resistant cover-up and long-wear foundations
