We’ve been led to believe that we need to buy a makeup remover with as complex of an ingredient list as some of our makeup products in order to wash away the day. Fortunately, that could not be further from the truth. While your makeup products might contain a perplexing assemblage of ingredients, your makeup remover can be a simple pleasure in your life. No need for chemicals; in fact, you don’t have to look much further than your garden or local grocery store to take your makeup off.
Getting Down to the Basics
What’s cleaner than utilizing ingredients straight from the garden? We believe in keeping things simple, and ingredients like cucumber water and olive skins are not only simple but straightforward on an ingredient list. Our Makeup Remover consists of just these simple ingredients, along with antioxidants and rosewater for extra soothing benefits for your skin. Taking off your stubborn makeup with water might seem like it’s too good to be true, but turns out you can have your cake and eat it too in this regard.
Cucumber water is an ingredient you’ll see in a few of our products, and for good reason. In addition to being one of the most effective ways to hydrate your skin, it can help melt even the toughest of makeup products right off with little effort, and without damaging your skin. Cucumbers offer a soothing, simple way to remove makeup that can also reduce redness and prevent breakouts at the same time. They’re quite the multitasker, but they need a helping hand to accomplish the task. This is where olives come in. Olive skins contain oils that attract other oils, which most makeup consists of. Remember, water attracts water, and oil attracts oil. This is why, in combination with the cucumber water, taking off your makeup becomes so effortless.
Why You Need to Take Off Your Makeup
While the task can be daunting, not removing your makeup before you head off to sleep can be worse than you’d think. Sleeping with your makeup on makes you susceptible to breakouts, premature aging, bacteria infections, and the bacteria can make a home on your pillowcase (and even begin to breed, in addition to ruining your gorgeous bedding).
If you make it a habit to not remove your makeup before bedtime, you can even dull your complexion, or develop skin conditions over time from your skin not being able to breathe properly underneath your makeup. Forget the makeup wipes, too. Makeup wipes do not effectively remove your makeup. Instead, makeup wipes smear your products around and into your pores without actually removing the majority of your makeup. This leads to clogged pores, more frequent breakouts, and both a stressed and congested complexion.
Other Clean Ways to Remove Your Makeup
In addition to our Makeup Remover, any of our cleansers are also great options for rinsing away your makeup. Here’s what we like uniquely about each one:
- Cream Cleanser: our cream cleanser is a water-soluble, lotion-based cleanser that is great for taking off makeup, especially water-based makeup. No need for a cotton pad, simply massage the cleanser into your eye area and over the surface of your facial skin and work the product in for about 40 seconds. Rinse away when done and you’ll notice all of your makeup has been washed down the drain, and your face is cleansed at the same time!
- Cleanse and Glow: watch your makeup melt off within seconds with this oil-based cleanser. This is the perfect option for someone with skin that is more prone to dryness. The oil blend in Cleanse and Glow will replenish your skin’s natural oils while you cleanse so that your skin doesn’t feel stripped of any hydration. A little bit goes a long way with this option.
- Delicate Cleanser: This soap and oil-based cleanser gives you the best of both worlds. If you feel like you need a little extra something to get all of your makeup off, but still crave hydration, this is a great option for you. Bonus: our Delicate Cleanser is an excellent makeup brush cleaner that is safe enough to use on your brushes daily without leaving a film or harming the bristles, but you can also clean your brushes once per week as with traditional brush cleaners and reap the same result of stain and grime-free makeup brushes.
We hope this helps make the idea of taking your makeup off a little less daunting when it can actually be quite refreshing! Simply swap those harmful makeup wipes for cucumbers and olives and you’re all set.
