As much as I love makeup, I hate removing it at the end of the day. Nevertheless, I always remove my makeup at the end of the day because I know it’s important to maintain healthy skin. So I really appreciate a product that can make the process of removing my makeup easier. In this post, I’m sharing my thoughts on Paula’s Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover.

My Thoughts | Makeup Remover
I agree with all the claims made in relation to this product. This has been my favourite makeup remover for years, even before I went cruelty-free! The skin around my eyes is very thin and sensitive so I really appreciate this gentle and non-irritating formula. It removes both eye makeup and lipstick very well. I personally prefer to use other cleansers to remove the rest of my face makeup. So while it could be used to remove face makeup, I wouldn’t recommend it for that based on my personal preference. But it is still my favourite makeup remover for eyes and lips!
The only negative thing I will say about this makeup remover is that it is a bit pricey at $16 USD. However, I usually wait until there is a 30-40% sale to stock up on several bottles of this product. I can also justify the price because I don’t go through this product very quickly.
You can also save 15% and get free shipping if you choose the auto-replenishment option (US & Canada only). With this option, Paula’s Choice will automatically send you the product you selected at the interval of months you selected.
Are Paula’s Choice products vegan?
Until very recently, Paula’s Choice clearly listed all the non-vegan products on its website. However, Paula’s Choice no longer claims that any of their products are vegan because they source their ingredients from different manufacturers. Paula’s Choice is now saying that the following ingredients may be animal-derived: Lactoperoxidase, Glyceryl Stearate, Cholesterol, Ceramides, PEG-100 Stearate Carmine, Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate, Tallow and Beeswax. Therefore, it is now the consumer’s responsibility to verify the ingredients listed under each product to determine if it includes any of the ingredients listed above. While this is certainly a disappointing decision, I have verified the ingredients in this makeup remover and it does not include any of the aforementioned ingredients.
