Remove your make-up
Choose what works best for your skin
Each Clarins make-up remover cleanses your skin with a tailored cleansing formula. Whether the best product for you is a milk, gel, cream, micellar water or oil, is determined by factors like how long it takes to remove your make-up, whether your coverage is light or waterproof and if you have sensitive eyes. Some women want to remove make-up quickly. Others are looking for a purifying, moisturising or soothing effect, depending on their skin type. Clarins Cleansing Micellar Water soothes skin and removes light make-up from the face, eyes and lips in a single sweep. Total Cleansing Oil removes heavy, long-lasting and waterproof make-up. For sensitive eyes and heavy make-up, the Instant Eye Make-Up Remover is your best choice. In the blink of an eye, it removes all traces of mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow. This two-phase lotion, formulated with cornflower and rosewater, immediately comforts and soothes the face. It’s a refreshing boost for all skin types! Clarins Velvet Cleansing Milk envelops your face in absolute comfort and softness. It’s a fine, silky, creamy lotion that cleanses and soothes, leaving your skin feeling gorgeously soft and velvet-smooth.
Cleanse your skin
Discover gentle cleansers for all skin types
The Purifying Gentle Foaming Cleanser purifies and tightens pores for combination to oily skin, whereas our Hydrating Gentle Foaming Cleanser is best for moisturising normal to dry skin, and the Soothing Gentle Foaming Cleanser soothes and comforts very dry or sensitive skin. For anyone who wants to shorten their skincare routine, the One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser removes make-up, gently cleanses, exfoliates and removes impurities in just one step. The Renewing Cleansing Mousse removes dead skin cells and imperfections from the skin thanks to the power of its organic soapwort extract – or “herbal soap” – that gently cleanses the skin with its foaming properties. It’s a natural blend that protects your face from impurities and external aggressors. Lather and rinse, it’s that simple!
Rebalance with toners
Alcohol-free toning lotions
Alongside the Gentle Foaming Cleanser suited to your skin type, we recommend using the Purifying Toning Lotion for oily skin, Hydrating Toning Lotion for dry skin and Soothing Toning Lotion for sensitive skin. All of these toners are alcohol-free and enriched with plant extracts to energise and strengthen the skin. Their effects aid make-up removal and help balance the skin’s flora thanks to the Clarins Microbiota Complex. Use after cleansing, before applying serum and moisturiser.

Why should I use a Clarins facial cleanser?
With or without make-up, your face needs to be cleansed morning and night to remove impurities, pollution and to remove any residual SPF. Our cleansers and make-up removers contain a powerful combination of Alpine Herbs, grown on Domaine Clarins, to nourish the skin with softening and protective properties.
Why should you cleanse your face every day?
Your face is exposed to external aggressors, pollution and temperature changes. Whether bare faced or made-up, your face should be cleansed every day, just like the rest of your body. For both hygienic and beauty reasons such as removing impurities and make-up, choosing a make-up remover and cleanser that suits your skin type and lifestyle is a must.
Beauty tip: once or twice a week, take the time to remove dead skin cells and improve skin texture with exfoliators and masks.
How do I choose the right cleanser and make-up remover for me?
The right choice depends on several factors:
- The cleansing formula - whether it’s milk, gel, cream, mousse, micellar water or oil
- How long it takes to remove your make-up
- How light or waterproof your make up is
- How sensitive your eyes are
Some women want to remove make-up quickly. Others are looking for a purifying, moisturising or soothing effect, depending on their skin type. Our selection of plant-powered make-up removers and cleansers have been expertly crafted to suit all different skin types, containing ingredients sourced from Domaine Clarins to leave your skin feeling soft.
What is the best cleanser and toner for dry skin?
For dry skin, we recommend our yellow bottled Hydrating Gentle Foaming Cleanser. Aloe Vera extract, renowned for its hydrating properties, complements the delicate effects of the Gentle Complex with organic gentian and lemon balm extracts to deeply hydrate and nourish the skin. Combined with the alcohol-free Hydrating Toning Lotion enriched with saffron flower extracts, this toner moisturises and softens normal to dry skin, leaving skin feeling supple and fresh.
What are the best cleansers and toners for oily skin?
The green bottled Purifying Gentle Foaming Cleanser draws its purifying power from Alpine herbs. Meadowsweet extract purifies combination to oily skin types and tightens pores. Its creamy formula, enriched with blue microbeads has a purifying effect on the skin, organic soapwort extract gently cleanses the face and protects it from the effects of hard water. Our Purifying Toning Lotion contains witch hazel and saffron flower extracts which help balance combination to oily skin.
What is the best cleanser and toner for sensitive skin?
Very dry or sensitive skin requires a soothing facial cleanser. The pink bottled Soothing Gentle Foaming Cleanser gently cleanses, softens and protects skin every day. Enriched with camomile extract and shea butter, our naturally soothing cleanser cares for and comforts sensitive skin. Our Soothing Toning Lotion also includes the additional benefits of echinacea and camomile whilst its soft and comfortable gel formula gently sweeps over sensitive skin.
How to choose between Micellar Water or Total Cleansing Oil?
Our Cleansing Micellar Water, with its water-based formula, immediately freshens skin after removing make-up. Its gentle formula based on moringa extract and Alpine herbs removes make-up and cleanses the skin of impurities and pollution. Perfect for women who prefer light make-up and are looking to remove it quickly.
Our Total Cleansing Oil with organic gentian and lemon balm extracts is specially formulated for those who want to remove long-lasting or waterproof make-up effortlessly. Apply the oil to a dry face and neck, press your hands flat on your face then quickly lift them again. Repeat this step 7 times, emulsify with a little water, rinse and apply the toner for your skin type.
