Hi all! I’m back in the new year of 2017 and ready for a fresh start! I definitely want to share more vegan beauty favorites with you all this year and I thought I would start off by sharing one of my favorite feelings: removing my makeup. There is something SO satisfying about removing my makeup at the end of a long day that I actually look forward to it. I think part of the reason is because I am such a clean freak and it makes me feel really cleansed. One of my biggest struggles was finding a makeup remover that actually gets it ALL off, especially the stubborn waterproof mascara. That’s what led me to try the Paula’s Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover.
This stuff is awesome! No surprise that I absolutely love it because I love everything Paula’s Choice but let me explain why. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am a wipe girl all the way. I LOVE love love makeup removing wipes. They are so easy and quick to use and if you go with an eco-friendly brand, they usually are biodegradable too. I am sad to say friends that makeup wipes just aren’t doing the trick for me anymore. Most of them, at least the ones that I have tried, only really remove the first layer of makeup on my face and nothing more (and forget about eyes all together). THIS, however, THIS is great. This removes not only the first layer, but gets even deeper. It not only breaks up your eye makeup for easier removal, but only takes 2 swipes for it to be completely gone. I’ve used other liquid makeup removers before too and this doesn’t make your mascara all oily and drippy either. You know what I’m talking about…that ugly-cry-raccoon-eyes-look…yep none of that! The best part is that it doesn’t irritate my eyes either as I’m removing– a major plus!
The Paula’s Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover is comparable to a micellar cleanser. It’s super lightweight and not oily either. It really does feel like water. This is another reason why I am a fan because I HATE that residue feeling after using a makeup remover, hence why I usually prefer wipes. With this makeup remover, I simply put a little on a cotton round and wipe around and my skin simply feels clean afterwards, nothing more or less. It also doesn’t break me out, which is a problem that I have with other removers since I have sensitive skin. All in all, I am very pleased with this remover and for anyone that is looking for something gentle to use on their eyes or even your full face, this is it. It’s only $16 for a large bottle and when you sign up for Paula’s Choice emails you will get discount codes too!
