What's the right way to remove makeup effectively? Removing makeup completely is crucial for healthy skin, as little traces of makeup that stays on the skin can cause irritation, blemishes and blackheads. Milk, oil, water, foam or jelly, how do you know which texture to go for? Discover all our tips for properly cleaning and removing makeup off your face.
Oily or combination skin requires a light formula like that of micellar water or cleansing gels. The 3-in-1 Micellar Water infused with cucumber and thymeliminates the impurities accumulated throughout the day (including excess sebum, traces of makeup), without drying and moisturises the skin.
This is the first step that invigorates and preps your skin for the products that follow. Apply the micellar water with a cotton pad to the face, eyelids and lips.
When using waterproof or long-lasting makeup, opt for an oily texture like that of our organic Cleansing Oil-To-Milk.
Just as its name suggests, the Oil-to-Milk transforms from a silky smooth oil into a milky emulsion when it comes into contact with water. And while it's gentle on the skin, it's tough on make-up, removing even stubborn and waterproof make-up, along with any impurities.
If you have dry skin, go for a creamy texture. Our Cleansing Milk is made for you. Its rich and creamy texture purifies your skin while providing it with a first layer of hydration.
Another advantage of cleansing milk: it can be applied to the face, eyes and lips!
