Wash away the day your gentlest way yet

Canva - Removing eye makeup.jpgThere are few things as important in your makeup routine as actually removing it. While we sleep, our body goes into overdrive healing, repairing and regenerating skin, regulating sebum production and letting all those fab skincare products you put on your skin reach deep into the pores to nurture and nourish with essential nutrients and vitamins.

If those pores are blocked, or the build up of dead skin cells, pollutants, airborne particles, impurities, dirt and debris, and oxidants that lie on the surface of the skin and around the eyes during the day are not removed, our largest organ, the skin, cannot do its job. This means those expensive goodies you put on your skin and eye area haven’t a hope of doing their vital work, zapping natural moisture and slowing cell renewal leaving skin dull and puffy. 

No biggie, right? Wrong! The more oxidised skin becomes the faster it ages which appears around the eyes sooner. Yep, premature ageing is exacerbated when the skincare cleansing routine is skipped. Miss it on the daily and that could bring your face age forwards by years. Yikes!

Plus, blocked pores lead to blackheads, pimples and even infection and redness - especially around the eye area hiding along the brow line. And eye makeup left on overnight can irritate eyes, sometimes leading to infection or pink eye.

Besides, who wants to wake up with last night’s makeup all over their face and pillow? That’s just delaying life admin another day!

Fear not, our gentle makeup removers promise to love your skin while keeping it dewy and vibrant, fresh to start each day, everyday.
