There are few posts where an image would suffice to tell the entire story. This is one of them. Alas, I shall bore you all with the minute details of how I remove my makeup. Basically, the above is my go-to until I run out of cotton rounds. Then I'll panic and buy 100 off a dodgy ebay seller. First things first, makeup removal does not equal cleansing for me. It's not even a step one of the infamous double cleanse. Right, now we have that out in the open let's get to it.
Clarins Instant Eye Make-up Remover is a shake it like you mean it solution that breaks down heavy eye makeup like a pro. I don't find it particularly oily that my skin gets greasy but do be careful because it does hurt your eyes if it gets in there. If you're a waterproof mascara lover - this one's for you. To clean up pesky eyeliner DHC Olive Oil Cotton Swabs are the one. Easy peasey and they condition lashes well if you are so inclined to give them a sweep over.
Vichy 3in1 Micellar Solution is designed for sensitive skins and claims to cleanse, remove makeup AND soothe. It removes face makeup like an absolute boss. My skin doesn't feel dry or stripped or raw. It sweeps over the eyes okay too and doesn't smell funky. Is it good? Yes. Do I love it to the point of replacing it from Bioderma? No. You're pretty good, Vichy, but I can get a 500ml bottle of Bioderma for a similar price. Awkward.
