Products on My Sh** List

What the heck? I wake up Monday morning and my eyes are like black all the way around.  I start my normal routine of getting ready and put on some new color correcting concealer I have been wanting to try from NYX.  Now don't get me wrong, I like a lot of their products and they aren't as expensive as other brands, but this one just sucked.  It was way too oily feeling and never really set, even with powder.  It just kept moving around and creasing my under eye.  It even got on my contact. :( Plus my eyes were still dark. That's counting lighter concealer on top.  It may work well for other people, but just didn't work for me.
So next, on my list are these two fellows.  Equate oil-free eye makeup remover and some Simple cleansing facial wipes.  They both claim to be gentle on the skin.  Well, let me tell you.  My eyes have been burning for two days.  I can't wear any makeup today because my eyes are so red and the skin around them is irritated so bad that my husband had to go get me something to put on them from Wal-Mart about 10:00 last night to calm them down.  I am miserable today.  At first the Equate brand wasn't so bad until I began to use it more often.  My skin really started to get red and tender to the touch.  Some Equate products are really really good and you can't tell the difference from their counterparts, but I wouldn't recommend using this one every day.  So, I thought I would try these cleansing wipes from Simple.  I received them in my Sept. Beauty Box 5, which I'll talk about more in another post.  First off, they didn't even remove all my eye makeup.  Especially, gel eyeliner.  They seemed fine on the rest of my face, but my eyes began itching and the skin around them felt like it was on fire.  It's still hurting today.  They advertise that it contains no harsh chemicals that can upset your skin.  Hmmmmm.......
So I'm looking for something better than just good ole soap and water to remove my eye makeup that's not irritating on my skin.  When I do I will be sure to share it with you guys here.
