What is makeup remover?
Makeup removers are just as essential in your beauty routine as the makeup products you use. Makeup removers are slightly different than facial cleansers which are designed to simply cleanse the skin. Makeup removers are specifically designed to remove all traces of makeup.
How does makeup remover work?
Makeup remover works by dissolving the oils, butters, and waxes found in makeup products. These ingredients are what help give makeup its texture, color, and staying power so by dissolving them makeup becomes easier to remove.
What is the best way to remove makeup?
The best way to remove makeup is by using a specific makeup remover dedicated product. Saturate a cotton pad with the makeup remover and gently wipe over the skin to remove any makeup.
How do I remove waterproof eye makeup?
For stubborn and long-wearing waterproof eye makeup saturate a cotton pad with a waterproof makeup remover and hold the cotton pad over the makeup for a few seconds to dissolve the waterproof and long-wearing eye makeup. You may need to repeat this step or you may like to use a cotton tip to help remove any additional eye makeup in hard-to-reach areas. This also works for long-wearing and waterproof lipstick and lip products.
Do I need to use a cleanser and makeup remover?
If you have been wearing a full face of heavy makeup it can be a good idea to use the double cleansing method – this involves using an oil-based makeup remover (like Bi-Facil) and then a water-based cleanser to cleanse the pores and skin.
What is the difference between oil-based makeup remover and water-based makeup remover?
Oil based makeup removers typically use a combination of oils which can help to break down the waxes and long-wearing ingredients often used in waterproof makeup. Water based makeup removers often have water as one of their key ingredients and give a refreshing cleanse to the skin – they may also take the form of a micellar water makeup remover. Our Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover uses a combination of both oil-based makeup removers and water-based makeup removers also known as Bi-Phase technology.
What should I do after removing makeup?
After removing your makeup make sure to care for the skin with a skincare routine. You may like to follow up with a toner to balance skin, a serum, a moisturizer, and an eye cream. If you have been wearing a lot of eye makeup look to care for your lashes and eye area with nourishing products.
