Do Cleansers Remove Makeup? [Top Answer]

If you’re equal parts skincare enthusiast and makeup connoisseur, chances are you have an arsenal filled with cleansers and makeup removers 🤓 Cleansers aren’t anything new, but they do come in a wide range of categories to address skin needs and concerns, but makeup removers serve one soul purpose — well, to remove your makeup of course 😎 While the terms are often used interchangeably, each formulation has its own benefits and you want to be sure you’re not mistakenly using one for the other 🔥 Here’s a breakdown of the differences and a list of some our favourites in each category.

Something we’re all guilty of is dismissing the little things that actually add up to become a more thorough cleanse. Things that you probably don’t think matter that much, like the temperature of the water. Ideally it should be lukewarm – around 37°C – for the most pleasant and effective cleanse. “Everybody has their happy medium, but too hot may irritate and dry out your skin and too cold doesn’t remove oil and dirt as well,” says Kluk. This means it’s actually best to wash your face before you get in the shower so that you’re in control of the temperature. Chantee Merchant amended the above on August 22, 2020 [2]

Allure.com Mercier continued to state that “The process of removing your makeup should always be gentle” and shouldn’t leave your skin irritated or dehydrated. I prefer to use a cleanser that won’t dry my skin. Use your fingertips to lightly rub a little oil on your eyes, lips and eyebrows. The oil will help to soften and remove makeup. Then take a flat, square cotton pad — I like these better than the balls, which can be rough — and pour a little cleansing oil on it. Continue to go over the exact same areas, taking care not to rub back and forth. To pull the colorr up, just skim in one direction. Crystalle Singer, Qinzhou (China) for sharing this information. [3]
The slower you can go when removing eye make-up, in particular, is the best. Ranella Hirsch, dermatologist said that the technology will do the job. Let it dry, apply makeup remover and then leave it to sit for another minute. Let it sit for a few minutes while you brush your teeth and floss. It will make mascara, eyeliner and shadow easier to remove once it is wiped clean. “If you do this, you won’t find smudges under your eyes in the morning anymore,” Hirsch says. Giving remover time to work its magic also prevents you from having to rub/scrub with your makeup-remover pad—always a mistake, since friction can damage the delicate skin around your eyes, causing irritation Contributing to wrinkles [4]
There’s nothing more annoying than coming home after a night of fun in a killer makeup look than reaching for your makeup wipes to take down your masterpiece, and realizing you’re fresh out. While forgetting to stock up on makeup wipes might seem like a small setback, it can feel like the biggest frustration when you’re ready to catch z’s but have on a full face of glam. If you think you’re going to reach for that DIY makeup remover you’ve concocted you better think again. Sleeping in your makeup isn’t an option. Luckily, we’ve got some alternatives for how to remove makeup without makeup wipes — all of which you likely already have on hand in your skin care cabinet.
