I like an oil-based cleanser that takes off everything  - face, lips, eye make-up and swipe w/ a soft microfiber cloth. Easy peasy. I go to bed w/ make-up less than once a year. No matter how tired I am I drag myself to the bathroom and force myself to get my face clean. I might skip the rest of my usual nightly routine though.

Beware of Simple brand Cleansing wipes.  Not good for those with sensitive skin.  

 

 

 the Simple - Cleansing wipes for Sensitive skin.  I think these wipes are very irritating - mainly because of a oder , or scent that seems to be part of them.  I tried using just one and could not get rid of the awful scent.

This is my go-to product for eyes and stubborn lip colors!

It's gentle and works great.  There was one waterproof mascara that didn't come off so well with it (a sample I got) so I just stopped using the mascara.

 

My face wash is Say Yes to Cucumbers Milk Face Wash, it's really gentle but helpful.  I also like the Jose Maran Cleansing Oil, neither of these leave my skin dry - just clean and soft.

The only thing I use to take off my makeup: Coconut Oil. Unrefined, cold pressed, Walmart bought coconut oil.

 

Why? Because it's an oil, it takes off EVERYTHING in one go. Even my stubborn Urban Decay waterproof eyeliner. My lips have no stands after I use my lipstick and my skin feels super soft to boot afterwards. This is what I do.

 

1. Get a warm wash cloth, put it on my face for a few seconds.

2. Get the coconut oil (if its not hot in your house it will be a soilid, if it's hot it'll be a liquid or kinda weird in texture) and just put it all over your face, or where your makeup is.

3.  Rewet the wash cloth with warm (warm more so towards hot for me) and just put it on your face

4. Let it sit (you don't have to, but my skin feels better after)

5. Wipe.

 

And that's it! Everythings off.

Add me to the list of oil users. I usually use jojoba oil.

1. Wet face

2. Pour oil into hand

3. Massage over face

4. Massage over eyes and feel all of the gunk come right off

5. Open your eyes and make GRRRRRR faces in the mirror because that eye makeup will look crazy all over your eyes

6. Wet a washcloth with hot water and wipe all of the oil away

You really shouldn't need any moisturizers or anything after that and it doesn't burn/sting. If you wear contacts, you may have some blurry vision for a while if you get the oil in your eyes because it will coat your contact lenses for a bit.

Re: Always getting told how to put on makeup, tricks,tips etc.. But how to take off all the makeup ?

I use a biphasic eye makeup remover, apply it to a cotton ball and use that to remove my eye makeup.  It usually takes a total of 2 or 3 cotton balls to remove it all.

 

Then I wash my face with my normal facial cleanser, which also removes makeup, to take off the rest of the makeup. 

 

I recently bought some coconut oil, it sounds like it works really well for some of you, but I'm not sure how to use it.  It is a solid and if I just dig a little bit out, it quickly turns into an oily mess all over my hands and face.  What's the best way to work with this stuff?  Thanks!

If you're having trouble with it, I would suggest running the jar under hot water to liquefy it before using. It's definitely something that you have to get used to. Pour a small amount into your palm (about the size of a nickel or quarter) and use the fingers of your other hand to massage the oil in until you have it all over and then you can use both hands to really work the oil in.

Re: Always getting told how to put on makeup, tricks,tips etc.. But how to take off all the makeup ?

I used to use cleansing wipes but found that it caused me to tug on my skin too much. So now I use a cleansing water or micellar solution (currently using bioderma but have also used/loved the caudalie one) on a soaked cotton pad. i run that all over my face to remove all my makeup. i supplement with lancome eye makeup remover if i am wearing mascara or a lot of eye makeup. then, i cleanse with my normal night time cleanser. 

 

i used to skip the makeup removing step but found that my face wasnt entirely clean after just a cleanse. i also like having makeup remover/cleansing water around for lazy nights when i just want to pass out. it's so easy to swipe your face with it that there's no excuse not for me to at least remove my makeup before going to bed.

Re: Always getting told how to put on makeup, tricks,tips etc.. But how to take off all the makeup ?

I first use baby wipes then noxema for sensitive skin. Then I apply cold water for a rinse followed by witch hazel as a toner. Next I apply whatever night time treatment I think my face requires which could be my prescribed clindamycin or skyn Iceland oxygenating night cream. I also drink one to glasses of water to help my internal organs do their job while I sleep. When I do this like I should my skin literally glows the next day and I feel lovely......on the days where I just wipe off my makeup only......not soo much!
