Taking it Off

Taking it Off

I’m talking about waterproof makeup…

I don’t really buy makeup remover (Bioderma being the exception) because I tend to use cleansers that take off my makeup and leave my skin feeling super clean. A lot of you have been asking what is the best for taking off stubborn makeup (I’m talking deep red lipstick, waterproof mascara, glitter eyeliner) and here is my answer: cleansing balm.

I love how thick they go on and the way they totally melt into your skin. I’ve never met a cleansing balm I didn’t like…or that didn’t take off my makeup.

What do you use for hard to remove makeup?

Some of my favorites? Bobbi Brown, Extra Balm Rinse; Eve Lom, Cleanser; Omorovicza, Thermal Cleansing Balm.
