The Makeup Removers you need this Autumn!

Written by vincyhan

When it comes to finding the right makeup removers it can be frustrating to find one that work properly. But the searching is now over! Ihave found two that I love and want to share with you all.

Mascaras and heavy eyeliners certainly have the power to enlarge our eyes, but every coin has two sides. Those long lasting eye makeup products seem to have a problem letting themselves go after a long day on our skin. Removing them thoroughly, unsurprisingly, becomes an unpleasant experience. Every time I would find myself standing in front of the mirror rubbing my eyes over and over again with cleansing wipes. I couldn’t help but wonder why there isn’t a magical product specialized in getting rid of them? 

After asking my friends as well as visiting couple of skincare brands’ in store, I shortlisted six makeup removers, tried them all and hereby recommended two of them that I found unbelievable when it came to taking everything off.

1. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser         

This product is sold with one 100ml cleanse, two muslin cloths and an instruction card.

Apply the rich balmy cream on your face and neck, massage to remove every scrape of the make-up, wipe off with the muslin cloth and rinse your face with cold water, leaving your skin polished, clean and soft,

I tried this cleanser first and was totally surprised by how easy it was to remove waterproof mascara and eyeliner. One extra standout point from this cleanser is the creamy texture and natural smell making using it more of a skin treatment than a daily chore.

2. Bobbi Brown Extra Balm Rinse    

Seriously, who would say no to a skincare product that smells like lemon pie? Its citrus scent makes it a great nighttime treatment as well as a daily makeup remover.  

When I first saw this product at the Bobbi Brown counter, I thought it was a foundation. I had no idea that Bobbi, as a makeup expert, also offered a skincare line.

Long story short, I drew a thin line using their signature long wear gel eyeliner on the back of my hand and directly put quarter-sized product on dry skin. I felt a subtle heat as soon as I applied the balm, which actually turned out to be very soothing. After I gently massaged my skin and washed it off, there wasn't a trace of eyeliner left and the back of my hand was soft, clean and moisturised. 

The outstanding moisturising ability of this cleanser is a huge plus considering most cleansing products are drying. (Thanks to the orange oil contained inside it!) If you hope to thoroughly remove your makeup as well as combat winter dry skin issues, then this is the cleanser you definitely don’t want to miss out on.

As they say, good skin starts with clean skin. Therefore, investing in a good cleanser is definitely worth it.
