You can use anything that's safe to put on your skin and oily.  I could explain the science behind it but I'm sure everyone doesn't really need to hear all that  Grin

oo I would not trust putting baby oil and the likes near my eyes.  I also heard besides damage itll also give you clogged pores and cilia sp? around the eyes as well.  Best thing I use is jojoba oil.  More expensive then mineral oil but probably alot safer and still pretty cheap in the long run since you don't use alot.  It gets all the makeup off and doesn't clog your pores.

I use Organic Virgin Coconut Cream Oil. You can get it online or at a local health food shop. It's mildy astringent, won't irritate most peoples skin and best of all is petroleum and chemical free! Oh, and it smells wonderful. Just like fresh coconuts.

I use baby shampoo to take my eye-makeup off (and I wear a lot of blackest-black mascara).  It is gentle and doesn't sting your eyes like a lot of soaps/lotions do-after all, it is tear free!

Baby wipes work wonders for removing makeup. I'm in theatre, and that's one of the first things I learned: makeup removal.

If you ever have to do body makeup, plain old dish soap works wonders. Get the moisterizing kind, and it'll save you a step. Wink
(I wouldn't advise using the soap anywhere on your face though; just for safety reasons. Can't be too careful!)

I use Contact lens solution on a qtip/cotton pad to get off stubborn eyeliner, mascara, etc.  Works great and you know its eye safe.  Smiley

Very mild dishsoap used to be the only thing we could find to remove mime makeup. Okay, so it was really cheap makeup and that could have had something to do with it. But regular soap and babywipes wouldn't take it off.

It worked alright without any major problems.

Olive oil is great for both removing makeup and as a moisturizer if you apply it thinly. Witch hazel is a good toner as well. Beauty secrets from my Grandma!  Wink

I like grapeseed oil, it is lighter than olive oil, has no scent and is slightly astringent for those who already have problems with oiliness.  I will not permit baby oil or vaseline in my home unless it is intended for use with non living entities such as squeaky wheels on appliances. Smiley

another thing that works really well (especially for sensitive skin) is ponds cold cream. i've done a lot of stage productions and everyone swears by this stuff. a little truly goes a long way, so buy the inexpensive smaller jar rather than the industrial sized one.
