Makeup Removal is a Process

My whole skin care philosophy is your stuck with the skin you have so you might as well take care of it. So why shouldn’t it be a process?
Yes, that’s right I have a skincare philosophy. For those of you who don’t ‘get it’ you probably think I have way too much time on my hands too!
Truth is I love taking off my makeup, putting on a pair of pj’s and then snuggling up to a warm bed.
So to keep reading to find out my makeup removal routine…

Part 1: Cleanse
The cleanser I am using right now is the NUXE Comfort Cleansing Milk. This smells great, its non-irritating and perfect for my dry sensitive skin. Overall I really like this, but one side of me thinks it’s been perfect at soothing my irritated skin.But another side feels it should remove my makeup better. Like many NUXE products this is loaded with great ingredients like coconut oil and macadamia oil.
Philosophy’s purity is also another great product to use and a go to of mine.

Part 2:Bioderma

Here is a product that needs no introduction. I don’t tone my skin but I do use Bioderma everyday after cleansing my skin. This magical water ensures I get all my facial makeup off. What I like about Bioderma is it feels like water, yet it’s very effective. Bioderma is such a cult product but for good reason, this stuff is great.

Part 3:Eye Makeup Remover
Holy Klorane! I thought this company only did hair products so I was shocked to find out they did skincare too. Firstly I avoided using eye makeup removers for years. Most of them I found burnt my eyes and the others left oily residue around my eyes. Klorane’s is the complete opposite super effective, non-greasy and has the same ph balance as tears. Which means even people with extremely sensitive eyes can use this. I have thoroughly been loving this, even the scent of this is beautiful!
For my Canadian ladies you can find Klorane’s skincare range at Rexall Pharmacies.

Seems like a lot I promise this takes no longer then a couple of minutes.
I would love to hear what some of your favorites are so don’t hesitate to leave a comment below.
Now back to work to go. Wishing I could take off my makeup but that would be downright crazy! 
Yup, I lead a very wild life.
