Our Favorite Hypoallergenic Mascara For People With Sensitive Eyes

Having sensitive, allergy-prone eyes or wearing contact lenses can mean that the average mascara’s ingredients can be seriously irritating to your eyes throughout the day. If you find yourself victim to bloodshot, teary eyes after applying your mascara, not all hope is lost. These 10 hypoallergenic mascaras will make it possible for even the most sensitive of eyes to rock some luscious lashes.

When it comes to good mascara, we’re normally stuck between choosing a formula that doesn’t smear but is nearly impossible to get off at the end of the day and one that finds its way halfway down our face by lunchtime. But this Ooh-La-Lash! Volumizing Mascara by VMO Hypoallergenics promises to stay on your lashes all day long and dissolve easily with water when you’re ready to take it off.

It even uses Vitamin E and olive oil to nourish the lashes long after you take it off.
