My makeup remover arsenal is a combination of:
- Micellar water: indispensable for removing daily makeup. There is no such thing as a micellar formula that removes the heavyweight waterproof mascaras (on me at least) though, and for that I use…
I enjoy the Bioderma Hydrabio! It’s the most hydrating, good for sensitive skin formula that I’ve tried so far.
- Oil cleansers: I’m pretty fussy with these, I prefer something that doesn’t have many essential oils and preferably with fewest ingredients possible.
Probably wouldn’t recommend rosehip oil as a makeup remover just because it does have actives that might irritate - on the other hand I’ve heard people successfully using it to improve their eyelashes? A good oil cleanser is formulated to rinse away cleanly too.
I can’t lie - I actually don’t have a favourite oil cleanser from a Western brand yet! I use Japanese ones preferably - Hadalabo and Fancl are both my go tos. No essential oils, perfect consistency, wash away cleanly and don’t irritate the skin at all.
