So, I was watching NazzysBeauty on YouTube and she was talking about her nighttime skincare routine. Well, that motivated me
MAC Cleanse Off Oil [travel size] $10- I've heard so many good things about using an oil to remove your makeup. It helps break down anything that's waterproof and hard to normally get off. Even though I have oily skin, I had no hesitations in buying this because I knew it wouldn't clog my pores or make me break out.
I used about 6-7 pumps on the initial wash to remove my makeup [foundation & all] and it did take it off. I did have to rinse off the initial oil and then go back with a few more pumps to really make sure it'd removed all of my makeup. I followed up with my Clarisonic and Body Shop Tea Tree Oil facial cleanser and still saw remnants of my foundation on the brush.
I like the oil, but I think it'd be more effective if used as a second step after removing your makeup with a makeup wipe.
Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover $5-7 depending on the store- I picked this up on a whim in CVS during a 40% off sale and I'm so glad I did! I hardly used eye makeup removers before this one and I don't think I can go back to the way I was living before. This remover is great at removing your makeup with only a few swipes. It does struggle with waterproof makeup a little bit, but it really gets the job done.
One thing I was nervous about with this very water like remover is how it would feel if I happened to get it in my eyes. Well, that happened and I didn't feel anything nor did my contacts get blurry [another plus!]. It was really like I was using some super charged water to take my makeup off.
I will definitely repurchase this again, it's a great steal.
