I love wearing makeup, but its not the easiest thing in the world to remove. I love makeup that lasts all day without budging which has led to me spending a ton of time trying to find the perfect way to remove my makeup at the end of the day.I have spent quite a bit of time scouring the web to find the perfect way to remove my makeup. I have tried several products and diy's to find the perfect makeup remover for me. After a ton of trial and error I have finally found my favorite 3 makeup removers! I couldn't pick just one because they are all great and they work for different scenarios. Now that I'm done rambling lets get to the makeup removers!
I must admit that I was very skeptical of cleansing waters when they first came out, but I have really come to like them for removing makeup. My current favorite cleansing water is the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water link! which is a great drugstore cleansing water. I use cleansing water by putting it on a cotton pad and sweeping it across my face. I will admit that it takes about 3 or 4 cotton pads to remove a full face of makeup, but I usually don't mind it. Cleansing water is also great for sensitive skin.
I think that cleansing wipes are the quickest and most travel-friendly way to remove makeup. I love using cleansing wipes by Simple because they don't irritate my skin or eyes. At the moment I am using Simple's Micellar Cleansing Wipes link! but I have tried their other versions and they all work great! Over the years cleansing wipes have really gotten better at removing makeup. I like taking cleansing wipes with me when I travel because I can just throw them away when I'm done and there's no mess!
Coconut oil is great for removing makeup and moisturizing the skin. I love using coconut oil in the winter because it keeps my skin from drying out. Its just like using a cleansing balm, but cheaper! I rub some coconut oil on my dry face and then just rinse it off. The coconut oil does leave a residue behind after you rinse it off, but I don't mind because I follow it up with my cleanser. Putting the coconut oil on a dry face is a must! I tried wetting my face first and it just didn't remove my makeup. Coconut oil is great for removing waterproof makeup without having to spend a ton of time scrubbing at your face. Its the perfect way to remove liquid lipsticks and it even hydrates your lips! By the way I don't have a favorite brand of coconut oil, but if your interested this is the coconut oil I am currently using. link!
It took me quite a while, but I think that I have found my 3 favorite makeup removers. I really love all 3 of these ways to remove makeup, but I also want to know what is your favorite way to remove your makeup. Please feel free to let me know in the comments below!
