Part of the fun in makeup is getting to take all of it off at the end of the day and hop into a nice, warm shower. Removing all your makeup thoroughly is crucial for the maintenance of clear, healthy skin and choosing the right type of makeup remover can really make a difference in your skincare routine.
We are sharing six new makeup removers that have just hit the shelves – you’ll have no more excuses for not removing your makeup after a night out when you see these handy products!
1. BIFESTA DUAL PHASE PORE CLEAR MICELLAR WATER
The first micellar water to be infused with botanical oil, the Bifesta Dual Phase Pore Clear Micellar Water is nourishing as it is tough on waterproof makeup. Featuring a unique blend of naturally derived botanical beauty oils such as lavender, sunflower, and rosemary oils, this product is even able to care for your lashes and delicate eye area, helping you achieve firmer, more elastic, radiant skin.
Bifesta Dual Phase Pore Clear Micellar Water retails at SGD19.90 and is available at all leading pharmacies (including Guardian), supermarkets, and department stores.
2. BIORE LIGHT & SMOOTH CLEANSING SERUM
This new addition to the Bioré family of rinse-off makeup removers has a lightweight serum texture that doesn’t leave an oily or sticky feeling on your face. Don’t underestimate its utility though, this floral-scented Light & Smooth Cleansing Serum is effective against tough waterproof makeup, especially that of the eyes.
Bioré Light & Smooth Cleansing Serum retails at SGD20.90 and is available at selected leading pharmacies (including Guardian), hypermarkets, Don Don Donki, and Welcia and BHG outlets.
3. FRANK BODY ANTI MAKEUP CLEANSING OIL
Don’t be intimidated by the word “oil” in this product! The combination of coffee seed oil, grapeseed oil (these are natural oils!), BHA acid and vitamin E in this makeup remover help to dissolve makeup and dirt that has piled up throughout the day. These ingredients also help to unclog pores, brighten and repair the dull skin, which is all we really want in a cleanser.
Frank Body Anti Makeup Cleansing Oil retails at SGD35 and is available at Sephora.
4. DRUNK ELEPHANT SLAAI MELTED BUTTER MAKEUP REMOVER
The Drunk Elephant Slaai Melted Butter Makeup Remover is a uniquely formulated cleansing balm that removes dirt, makeup and sunscreen from your skin upon adding water. Slaai is friendly on dry skin and is free from PEGs and essential oils. Its formulation of clean, antioxidant-rich fruit extracts and oils ensures complete soothing, cleansing and moisturising of your skin.
