Beauty Diaries Volume V: My Top 3 Makeup Removers


1. MAC Cleanse Off Oil ($28): My holiest of holy grail makeup removers. If I had to choose only one makeup remover to own it would be this one. With the Cleanse Off Oil, a little bit goes a long way. It is completely oil (not duo-layered like most), and is very gentle because it requires very little rubbing to take off your makeup. I predominately only use this for my eye makeup because it removes even the most stubborn waterproof makeup. However, you can also use this on your entire face if you wish.
How to use: pump directly into your hands and rub! Do not use a cotton swab!! Rinse off or wipe off with makeup wipes. 

2. Clarins Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover Lotion ($26.50): At first I hated this makeup remover because it didn't do its job at removing my eye makeup. I then realized it was the perfect eye makeup remover for touch ups because it is oil-free so it doesn't leave an oily residue that makes reapplying/fixing your mistakes difficult. If you're looking for a makeup remover to take off all your eye makeup, this one is not the one. However, if you need something to get rid of fall out, smudging, or eyeliner mistakes, this one is perfect!
How to use: Saturate Q-tip with product and gently wipe away your mistakes!

3. Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes ($4.99): These are my personal favorite makeup wipes. I like to use it to remove my face makeup and wipe away the residue after using the MAC Cleanse Off Oil because I feel that it does a better job than just rinsing with water. It claims to "dissolve all traces of makeup, even waterproof mascara", and that is something I'll have to disagree with. I personally only find it good for face, lip, and non-waterproof eye makeup, but I still prefer to use a wipe because it is easier to see whether or not all of your face makeup has been removed since you can wipe until you see no more color. 
How to use: I think this one's pretty self-explanatory :)

I hope this was helpful for all you girls who love makeup, whether you're just getting into it or you're a secret hoarder :) Thanks for reading and I'll see you all next time!
