My relationship with make-up is love-hate. Mostly love but occasionally I curse the twenty minutes I spent putting it on. That happens when I'm taking it off. I'm not talking about taking off the every-day look that consists of primer, mascara, lipstick and a swirl of bronzer. I'm talking about the full face, evening look. Eyeliner that's akin to permanent marker. 24 hour lasting lipsticks that would survive snogging Brad Pitt's face off.
Some days it's hard to break up with your make-up.
A lot of the trouble with removing make-up comes from using the wrong make-up remover for the job. (Or relying on a cleanser to do it all!). Make-up remover wipes are great for light make-up. Liquid removers will tackle medium-to-heavy coverage - it might take a bit of scrubbing though so you'll want to make sure you're using a soft cloth or cotton pad. No scrubby flannels!
But if you ask us, the effective way to remove, well, any make-up really, but especially the full face, is also the most luxurious method - the balm cleanser / balm make-up remover.
You simply melt the balm between your fingers and massage over your dry face - even the delicate eye area. No elbow grease required! The balm turns into an oil that grabs dirt and grime and make up, making them easy to rinse away. Then using warm water and a soft cloth you wipe the balm (and your makeup) away.
The really, really cool thing about a cleansing balm is that it also hydrates and replenishes your skin, seriously, cleansing becomes moisturisings when you use a balm! And if you're one of us oily skinned ladies - don't worry, just remember science - like attracts like. So the oil in the balm removes excess sebum from your skin, without stripping it!
Today's trial product is one of Kellie's favourites - she chose it to put in the Staff Picks Best Beauty Box Ever for one reason. It makes breaking up with your makeup easy peasy. A clean break if you will.
