You know what is as important as putting on makeup? Taking it off. Because sleeping with makeup on would clog your pores, hereby causing your skin to break out. And really, is there a better feeling than taking all that makeup and dirt and grime off of your face before hitting the sack?
So, here are some makeup removers that will get the job done without burning a huge hole in your pocket.
Himalaya Herbals Refreshing Cleansing Milk
Enriched with the goodness of lemon and grapeseed, this product from Himalaya Herbals effectively removes your makeup while soothing your skin, thanks to the presence of mint extracts in it. It is great product for all those of you who are on a budget, as it retails for Rs 90! You can buy it .
Biotique Bio Almond Oil Soothing Face & Eye Make Up Cleanser
In case you didn’t know this already, oil-based products are most effective when it comes to removing stubborn makeup, (looking at you, waterproof mascara). This offering from Biotique is full of natural ingredients that aren’t harsh on your skin but are effective against all that grime. It retails for Rs 175 and is recommended for normal to dry skin types.
Kaya Hydra Cleanse Makeup Remover
This makeup remover from the house of Kaya is a 3-in-1 product that is meant to deeply cleanse and hydrate your skin and remove your makeup at the same time, all while maintaining the pH balance of your skin. Oh, and did I mention that it is alcohol-free? Available for Rs 290 here.
Maybelline New York Micellar Water
Ah, micellar water. If I were a YouTuber, this is one product that I would have surely featured in my ‘YouTube Made Me Buy It’ videos. But to tell you the truth, I have no regrets. As the name suggests, the consistency of this product is like water, which makes it extremely lightweight,. Nonetheless, it effectively removes makeup without drying out your skin. And the best part, if you are really, really lazy, you need not wash your face after using this. And no, it won’t clog your pores. #TrueStory. Buy it for Rs 399 .
L’Oreal Paris Gentle Cleansing Milk
This one is best suited for those of you who are struggling with dry and flaky skin. While it will get rid of most of your makeup rather well while leaving your skin moisturised, you may have to swipe this over your waterproof makeup a couple of times to fully remove it. If you don’t like the greasiness that comes with oil-based removers, go for this one instead. It retails for Rs 499 .
