Micellar water (I like the generic version of drug store Garnier) I don’t even know if it’s around anymore as I bought it by the case. Soak a cotton pad and press onto the eye. It will dissolve your make up and not leave an oily residue or require excessive rubbing

I also like bliss non oily gel

i really dislike Lancôme or L’Oréal bc of thr scent and the stinging feeling

But. i am prone to Milia, so basically only rarely wear makeup nowadays

I recently purchased long wear foundation so I'm doing a two-step process - garnier micellar water first, then cetaphil cleanser scrubbed off with a muslin cloth. gets it all. well, my mascara is a bit stubborn. not sure if it's the particular mascara (not waterproof) or the micellar water, but I always have some left under my eyes in the morning.

I also do a two-step process:
First I use KOSE Soft MO White cleaning oil - gently rub all over my face and eyelashes, then rinse with warm water using my hands.
Second I use La Rosche-Posay Hydrating Gentle cleanser - gently rub all over face and eyelashes, then rinse with warm water using first my hands and then a Wonder Cloth (microfiber cleansing cloth) - if I've missed anything the cloth will get it!

I trade off between unscented coconut oil (usually in winter months) and La Roche-Posay micellar water.

the coconut oil doesn't leave an oily residue on your face? I have some I use occasionally for my hair; didn't know it would remove makeup

I have dry skin. I rub a little all over on my face & eye area (for mascara since I wear waterproof) with my fingers and remove everything w/a cotton pad. Then I wash my face w/a cleanser then use toner. I don't find an oily residue, maybe cuz I use toner after.

Hado Labo Oil Cleanser! It's the best. 30 seconds rub, and then wash right off. I think I've only had to do it twice because I really shellac'd my foundation on. Here's the bottle (I'd skip buying it from Amazon, there's no QA with beauty products and I've gotten fakes):
