My previous post talks about the removal of makeup and dirt on the face using a cleansing procedure called double-cleansing.
For women who use eye makeup. Another step is involved. Usually this step is performed before double-cleansing.
Eye-makeup = eyeshadows, eyeliners, mascaras
Product – a creamy cleanser can remove non-waterproof makeup quite well, but if you wear waterproof makeup, a remover with some oil does a far better job.
Examples of products I’ve used:
Cheaper range: Maybelline, L’oreal – good
More expensive range: Kanebo, Clinique – v good. More effective.
For overall facial & eye-makeup removal – L’oreal Demaq. (good for facial makeup removal but not for eye-makeup as the oil gets into the eyes)
Some of you might have noticed that the cleansers can be used for lip-makeup removal as well. And it’s good to perform this extra step as the removers do get rid of the remnants of our lipstick quite effectively; preventing our lips from getting darker as we age, or so we’re told 🙂
