No matter how tired you may be, don’t ever neglect removing your makeup. If it is not cleansed away properly, you may be faced with the problems of clogged pores and dull complexion.
Here are a few we’ve tried and loved.
Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil: Don’t be worried about oils even if you have oily skin, because oils have great affinity with oils and thus able to strip away excess sebum and impurities. The Mild Cleansing Oil is one of Fancl’s bestseller for a reason. The makeup removal is gentle on the skin, removes all traces of makeup easily and leaves the skin feeling hydrated. You may want to learn how to use a cleansing oil before you invest in one though, because they don’t work like normal cleansers. Available at all Fancl boutiques and counters.
Philosophy Purity Made Simple: This is a gel cleanser with fabulous texture and cleanses skin gently too. It’s a makeup remover, cleanser and toner all rolled into one product, so it makes your skincare regime a lot more lean. It’s easy to use, cleanses makeup effectively and hydrates skin. However, take note that it’s not great with removing waterproof eye and lip makeup, so you may need to follow up with a makeup remover for this purpose. Available at Sephora and Philosophy counter at Tangs Orchard.
Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Waterproof Eye Make-Up Remover: And if you’re looking for that perfect eye makeup remover, try this one from Eucerin. A two-tiered makeup remover, you have to shake the bottle before you pour some onto a cotton pad. Leave the soaked cotton pad on top of your eyelids, and then gently wipe and see stubborn makeup removed. Unlike many eye makeup remover we’ve tried that stings the eyes, this is extremely gentle. It also leaves very minimal grease that can be easily removed with a cleanser or a toner. Available at all leading supermarkets and pharmacies.
Absolution L’Eau Soir et Matin: An organic product, has a great scent that we really love. Lay a cotton pad on the plate of the dispenser, and give a pump or two to soak the cotton pad. Then, wipe the formula onto skin like how you would with a toner. Besides cleansing away makeup, this formula also purify your skin, heal it and regulate cellular metabolism. In other words, it doubles up as a skincare, so you don’t have to cleanse it away after you remove your makeup with it. The sensorial experience, thanks to the essential oil used in the formula, makes using it a delight. Available at Escentials MBS, Paragon and Tangs Orchard.
