Ever since I started wearing makeup again, I’ve been experimenting on how to remove my makeup. I’ve tried…

Here’s my experience with each method.

Removing makeup only with organic extra virgin olive oil or organic extra virgin coconut oil

This is what I’ve been doing for YEARS. I use organic evoo or organic coconut oil to remove my makeup. My preference is organic evoo. Organic coconut oil feels heavier on my skin. When I use oils on my skin, they must be organic. For some reason, the oils that are not organic do not work on my skin as good compared to the organic ones. My skin looks irritated after using oil that’s not organic on my face. =/ So after applying oil to my face and letting the oil break down my makeup (especially mascara), I wipe the oil off with a cotton pad. This worked for sooo many years. BUT, I met ‘cleansing water’, and I realized that I wasn’t removing my makeup all off. From my experience with cleansing water, I won’t use only oil alone any longer.

Removing makeup with oil plus using cleansing water

This is the best method for my skin type — use oil, wipe, cleansing water, wipe again. Sounds like a long process, right? It’s worth it. Cleansing water does a great job at removing BB Creams. BB Creams stick to the skin like no other! I can’t believe how much makeup I still have on my skin after looking at the cotton pad when using cleansing water. It’s pretty outrageous. I still have lots of foundation (that can’t be seen by the eye) showing up on the cotton pad. Unbelievable. I highly recommend adding cleansing water to your makeup removal routine to make sure everything is off! It helps to prevent breakouts!

Using a makeup cleansing balm plus cleansing water

Since I have oily skin, makeup cleansing balms are meh. I think it’s more for dry or normal skin types. The ones I have used (Physician’s Formula The Perfect Matcha 3-in-1 Melting Cleansing Balm & elf Makeup Remover Balm), I didn’t see or feel anything beneficial to them. I rather just buy a huge bottle of organic evoo or organic extra virgin coconut oil (less expensive too) than buy another cleansing balm (overpriced for what you get). Once again, cleansing water does a great job at removing makeup.

To answer the question, is cleansing water worth it? Yes, it is. I’m still using Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water (blue label). I haven’t gotten to the green label yet.
