The most painful part about makeup is the bit where you have to take it off. Comment on this post and let me know how you remove your makeup, I would love to know!
I’ve tried them all! I’ve used wipes when I was a lot younger and didn’t know any better. Wipes may be convenient in some situations but they’re not the best option for many reasons. Most wipes contain a high content of chemicals that ease the removal of makeup. However they can leave chemical residue on the skin which is very bad for your skin. These substances can also leave your skin feeling dry and irritated. So wipes are a total NO NO for me unless I’m stranded somewhere lol.
So what are the other options? Well I’m really enjoying the Garnier Micellar Water. Especially the Oil Infused one. This worked really well on my skin until recently. I’m not sure what changed or maybe it’s the cold British weather that has left my skin feeling awfully dry. I still use the Oil Infused Garnier Micellar Water to remove my make up as it’s perfect for dry skin but I avoid the eye area. Recently my eye area would become so dry and the Micellar water made it a lot worse. So when I realised what caused it, I instantly stopped using it. So what did I use to remove my makeup? Coconut oil. Simple and organic.
Guys, this has totally changed my ‘makeup-removing’ game. It’s amazing! Why did I not think of this before?! It removes the makeup so easily and fast especially those very dry eye products such as eyeliner and mascara. There is no need for excessive scrubbing. It’s gentle and organic so highly unlikely to break you out. Plus it smells delicious!
So which coconut oil?
My personal favourite is the Vita Coco Coconut Oil. Why? Because it’s ‘Extra Virgin, 100% raw, organic, cold pressed and free from harmful chemicals’
How to use it?
Use a very little amount of coconut oil out of the jar. If the oil is in a solid form then rub it between your fingers until it becomes liquid. Then close your eyes and gently massage the oil over your eyelids and lashes in an exfoliating motion. You’ll feel your makeup removing so easily without any excessing rubbing. Do the same for the rest of your face. You can use a warm, wet washcloth to wipe off any excess coconut oil. Then finally splash your face with warm water. And that’s it! Simple yet very effective. I repeat the process twice for deep cleansing. It leaves your skin clean and most importantly feeling smooth, dewy and moisturised.
That’s it for today my loves! Hope you enjoyed this post.
Lots of love,
