OCuSOFT Lid Scrub Eyelid Cleanser for Sensitive Eyes - And Everyone Else

This feature is a three-peat. I try to re-post it every couple of years, and since I don't have new photos tonight (basically because of inclement weather (including clouds, wind, and rain), I can present the best eyelid cleanser I've ever used. The best. I feel like this feature is a public service announcement.

As much as I adore my little raccoons outside, I don't want to look like them. That makes eye makeup removers a necessity. Even the best facial cleansers won't always take off that stubborn mascara "run" under my eyes.

One product I use regularly is a bit unusual, and it's very effective: OCuSOFT Lid Scrub Eyelid Cleanser (prices for a box are all over the place - $15.99 at CVS). These individually wrapped, moistened pads are fabulous, not only for removing eye makeup, but also for exfoliating the tender skin around your eyes. They were recommended to me by my opthamologist years ago, and I have used them ever since. I buy mine at CVS or Costco. I highly recommend these pads. You won't find a more effective eye makeup remover. Plus, they do double duty for anyone with sensitive eyes, blepharatis, dry skin, or any other condition that makes your eyelids peel.

Imagine wearing contacts and having microscopic pieces of skin tissue falling into them during the day. Enough said? Blepharitis is an eye condition characterized by chronic inflammation of the eyelid, and more of us have it than you would imagine. OCuSOFT Lid Scrub Pads continuously and gently exfolate the eyelid to prevent inflammation and its concomitant issues.

These pads are recommended by doctors, including mine, for eyelid cleansing to remove oil, debris, and desquamated skin (flakes) that may lead to eye irritation. They remove oil and debris associated with dry eyes and promote comfort for contact lens wearers. Plus, they remove every last vestige of eye makeup.

I never have raccoon eyes after I use the pads, and all traces of mascara and liner are history. One pad suffices for both eyes. Because they are individually wrapped, they are extremely convenient/ideal for travel. Formulated without alcohol, fragrance, or dye, they can be used by everyone.

I cannot recommend OCuSOFT Lid Scrub pads highly enough. As I mentioned, I've written about them before (I should buy stock), and when I mention them in features, someone always asks about them. They are easy to find, inexpensive, and the best makeup remover you'll ever find. Not only that, they are good for you.

Don't buy the ones you have to mix. It's faster and much more convenient to purchase the pre-moistened pads. Also, the "plus" ones are a bit harsh. Stick with the ones that come in the dark blue box.

Check out the OCuSOFT Web site to learn more. OCuSOFT Lid Scrub Eyelid Cleanser is one of my beauty secrets. I think I've converted more than a few of you.

I started using these after reading one of your posts. They are great for removing makeup. My ophthalmologist also recommends them, so there's another vote!

Eyelid scrubs are great....if one suffers from dry eye, they can help by unclogging the glands that secrete a much needed oil onto the surface of the eye. Not to mention these pads exfoliate the lid area nicely, leaving smooth and clean skin.

This review came at the perfect time for me because I've been having some serious eye issues. I plan to buy a box as soon as possible. Thanks for repeating your generous recommendation.

C Girl, thank you for this. I have purchased the original and the plus but didn't know there was a sensitive version. I will look for it!

Great post, CG! While reading your post, it hit me that my Ophthalmologist recommended I use the OCuSoft Pads at my last appt. a year ago, and I filed it in the back of my brain, never picking them up. My Opthamologist would be thrilled to know that now that my cosmetic product guru has recommended this product, I will grab them on my next trip to CVS! Hey, the good doctor is a lovely woman, Columbia graduate with honors, but wears no makeup! And there you have it! Thank you for re-posting your recommendation!

These are amazing.....make my eyes feel better after just one use. I've been using them for years but have never thought to remove makeup with them- definitely going to try that!

Thanks for your three-peat on this post CG! I've missed seeing it previously. I'm curious if this will help with milia that I get along my lower lash line & occasionally on the lid itself. I've identified the most recent culprit as the eye serum I was using. Some of the milia have disappeared but would like to get rid of the last remaining few.

Interesting. My optometrist gave me a few to try a few months back, but I didn't really know what they were for. She told me I could remove my eye makeup with them, but I didn't find them very effective on mascara and long wearing eyeliner. I think I'll give them a try again, because I have dry eyes that get irritated easily; if these can help, I'm all for it.

I ordered a box from Amazon (US$9.01 and eligible for free shipping with Prime), and so far I'm liking the stuff. It gets all the makeup off without any irritation. Usually bu about the third day if I'm going to have a reaction it will have happened, and I passed that 2 days ago. Sweet! I'm looking forward to seeing what this can do for me long term.

I started using these when you posted a few years ago and have consistently re-purchased! They are wonderful little pads that remove eye makeup, relieve tired eyes when just place over each eye for 10 minutes then gently wipe the eye area and my opthamologist recommends using these for sensitive eyes. Great little find. Thanks for the original post! I am sure others will find this most helpful.
