Natural Make Up Removers | Do They Work?

Sunday, 19 March 2017

Before I start, I just wanted to say that I take all of my blog photography in bulk for the upcoming months and plan/schedule my posts. I actually took this photo on the 17th February, so I've been using these products for a month now.  

Anyway, I decided I wanted to stop using make up wipes some time ago now. So I used up the ones I had and went on the hunt for a natural, less wasteful alternative. 

So first of all, this claims that 'MISS ELLA LOTION Cleansing lotion is perfect to remove make-up and to clean all the skin's types. It's a natural lotion with a gently composition of essential oils like New Caledonia sandalwood and Lavendin grosso and organic floral waters 100% natural'. You also get 260ml of product for £12.50, which I personally think is very reasonably priced. 

To remove a full face of make up I would first of all dampen my Balm Balm Organic Muslin Face Cloth and then pour a small amount on to it. I found that it removed my make up really well, including mascara and eyeliner. It left hardly an smudges of black across my face and there was no pesky foundation left. It also didn't sting my eyes. 

The only negative is the smell which I can't really describe but I'm definitely not keen. Apart from that it worked really well and is great value for money

This claims to be an 'All-in-one, no-rinse cleansing - ideal for daily use and perfect for travel. Removes make-up and impurities, balances and hydrates even sensitive skin in one single step. Based on moisturising aloe vera, skinquenching hyaluronic acid and calming Northern peony. Apply onto a cotton pad, wipe over face, eyes and lips. VEGAN Nut Free Natural & Organic ECOCERT Cruelty Free'.  I feel it's quite expensive for the amount you get but Madara is a very high quality brand, so that's to be expected. 

So to remove a full face of make up I would pour a fairly small amount onto a dry muslin cloth. It didn't say to specifically dampen your cloth before so I didn't. This removed my foundation really well but unfortunately it didn't do the same with my eye make up. It instead smudged it across my face and I had to use coconut oil to get it off. 

Overall I think this would work better after you've removed your make up with something else and wanted an extra cleanse. 

'Moisturise, cleanse, exfoliate, nourish, repair and protect from one revolutionary little pot.' This is probably my favourite natural make up remover, although it can get messy! This also will last you a lot longer than your conventional make up remover, so I personally feel it is good value for money.

To remove a full face of make up I would scoop a bit out and rub it over my make up. The make up then kind of breaks down and basically goes everywhere! Next I would wipe my face with a damp muslin cloth until all of my make up was off. 

This worked so well and is definitely worth persevering with. Yes it takes longer than using a wipe but I found it got off every single bit of make up. You can also use this balm as a moisturiser and is suitable for all skin types. 

Also coconut oil is a great way of removing make up and is completely natural!
