Best Mascara to Choose for Sensitive Eyes
- by staff
- 2nd January 2019
Finding the part of the mascara your eyes are sensitive to is the first and foremost thing to do, followed by choosing the best solution. The common things that a pair of eyes is often susceptible to are either the material of the mascara brush or the ingredients of the mascara.
Types of Mascaras for Sensitive Eyes
1. Fragrance-free Mascara
The smelling agent in the mascara might be higher in concentration than your tolerance level so choose the ones without any fragrance.
Suggestions: L’Oréal Paris Makeup Telescopic Original Lengthening Mascara, Clinique Lash Power Mascara
2. Gluten-free Mascara
Women with gluten intolerance should avoid common mascara that includes gluten in some way or other. Including wheat particles in mascara means incorporating gluten in the product as well, so stay away.

3. Polymer-based Mascara
Polymer ensures that your every lash is highlighted without leaving the eyes irritated and dry.

4. Aloe and B5 Based Mascara
As mascaras are supposed to give your eyelashes a thick look, most of them contain a thickening agent hydroxyethyl cellulose or HEC which also happens to cause allergy on sensitive skin. So ditch the mascara containing this compound (even if you have to dismiss some organic mascara as some of them uses the compound) and use the one with natural conditioners like vitamin B5 and aloe. You will have the same effect without any irritation.

5. Vegan Mascara
All vegan makeup products contain a lesser amount of ingredients than chemical cosmetics, so in a way using the former ensures minimal usage of chemicals. Also, they contains a lot of water so the hydrating factor is always there. Last but not the least, you can sleep well as no animal is going to suffer for the testing of such products for you.

6. Organic Mascara
Organic mascaras do not contain any harmful preservatives meaning they are toxin-free. Some of them are enriched in natural minerals, antioxidants, and organic oils. The mascaras that are sold claiming to be 100% natural, sometimes includes cucumber extract, a natural soothing agent.

As each mentioned category contains multiple products of different brands, you must always check the ingredient list from the bottle to know if there is anything that doesn’t go well on you.
