    Is there anything bad about using baby lotion instead of make-up remover? It works the same but I was wondering if maybe I should switch back to make-up remover.. :unsure: ?????

    Yup, same here. A good product to try are Almay's makeup remover pads. I get the "Moisturizing ones", and I absolutely love them.

    I never buy eye makeup remover. I usually use baby oil or whichever one I get for free with a gift with purchase deal. ;)

    I think that you should stick with products that targets specific needs, like makeup remover. I wouldnt trust using baby oil or lotion on skin, because it may cause breakouts, if skin is oily, and it can cause minimal irritations on regular to sensitive skin.. I guess :)

    i agree ;)
    oil clogs pores and therefore provokes breakouts.

    Hehe...... Trust me, NEVER use baby lotion as makeup remover if you tend to breakout easily!

    I did it and started to have tiny whiteheads all around my eye area ! ! !

    You're probably better off using everything as it is ment to, which means:

    Baby lotion as a BODY LOTION

    and eye makeup remover as SOMETHING TO REMOVE MAKEUP OR "EXCESS DIRTS (I didn't want to say IMPURITIES cuz it sounds to snobbish lol :p )" from your EYE AREA!

    I would normally do it before cleansing so that the oil gets washed away, and therefore no eye zits! Most eye makeup removers for waterproof makeup are oil-based.

    Sweet almond oil is another oil that can be subsituted for makeup remover. A lot of makeup artists use it, same with babywipes (but I suggest getting the gentler cloth-like ones in unscented). I wouldn't replace the wipes with your regular cleanser, but they're good for the nights when you stumble home drunk and don't feel like washing your face. ;)

    i never used baby oil or lotions on my face & around eyes area :huh:
    for eyes, i use eye makeup removers -- my favorite is lancome's , & i also like Loreal's water-proof eyemakeup removers for a less expensive alternative.

    and only when i'm in a rush, i use makeup wipes, either johnson's or pure's
