Cleansing Oil, Cream Remover, Cleansing Water, Wipes : The best makeup removers?

 

As much as I love putting on makeup, it can be a pain to remove at the end of a long, tiring day! However, if you skimp on this process, you can easily end up with breakouts or worse – eye infections! I’ve experimented with loads of makeup removers in the past ranging from budget finds to high end removers. I always like to have a few different types of removers with me – one for heavy duty cleansing and one for the lazy light makeup days. However currently, I have ended up with 4 different kinds of removers thanks to a Duty free haul few months back and I thought a post on makeup removal would be apt!

Here’s my take on different kinds of makeup removers –

 

Cleansing Wipes :

The easiest and laziest kind of makeup removal! I don’t generally trust the regular wet wipes for my face (too much alcohol) and the only wipes I’ve tried are the Bourjois Express Cleansing Wipes (pictured above)  which do a pretty good job except with very stubborn waterproof mascara. I’m reserving these for my lazy days and for traveling. Neutrogena and MAC also make good cleansing wipes but the Neutrogena ones aren’t available in India sadly. I’ve also heard good stuff about the Ole Henriksen cleansing wipes.

 

 

Cream Cleansers/Cleansing Milk :

Cream cleansers basically have a lotion or cream like consistency and I’m not a big fan of these – simply because the ones I’ve tried haven’t been that great. Either they are ineffective against waterproof makeup or too heavy for the skin. I particularly remember using the Revlon one few years back that used to sting my eyes and make them cloudy! However the Bourjois one (pictured above) I picked up Delhi Duty Free is surprisingly nice! Its light weight and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, removes water-resistant makeup well (not waterproof though) and has a refreshing cucumber+aloe scent! I’m curious to try out the Colorbar cleansers in the future – they have different ones for different skin types and I’d love to give them a go. Have any of you tried them out?
