Basic 4 Cleansers and Makeup removers

In today´s basics from the August basics we are going to talk about a very important step in our face care routine, I am talking about cleansers and makeup removers.

Two products that works perfect together but remember if you use a cleanser not always will need to use a makeup remover but if you use a makeup remover I suggest to always use a cleanser after too.

Let´s start with the definition, cleansers are products made to clean the face, remove the dead cells, the dirt, the oil and in more specific version can also help with the pores and the acne. This is a must have product cause we need to clean our face from the dead cells and residue in the morning from the night cells regenerations and in the evening to remove the dirt and the pollution we got on our face from the day and make our faces ready to the cell regeneration process of the night time.
The thing is to find the perfect cleanser for our face, they are special cleanser for dry skin, for oily skin, for sensitive skin and even for acne skin.
Let´s start with the products and we will leave the makeup remover for later on the post.

*YSL Forever youth liberator cleansing foam, a cleanser in foam form that cleans, helps to remove the makeup, impurities, softening the skin and leaving a moister effect and very comfortable no tight.

The vitamin C gives the brightening properties to the product, the vitamin PP stimulates the collagen and protects from the free radicals and the alegloryzina controls the despigmentation of the skin, leaving a comfort on the skin, helping the defense of the skin to boost up with the antioxidant ingredients.

So now is time to talk about makeup removers, some of the cleansers we had talked about also removes makeup but now we are going to talk about properly makeup removers.

The makeup remover is a product that removes completely the makeup, but some times leaves a product residue on the skin that I don´t really like that´s why I normally use a cleanser after using a makeup remover to leave the skin completely skin and without makeup.

As the cleanser they are so many different types of makeup removes and for so many types of skins or problems or skin states, so let´s start.

*Nuxe Micellar cleansing water, a water micelar cleanser with rose petals that doesnt´contains alcohol and removes completely the makeup, also removes impurities and can be use on the lips and on the eyes.

It doesn´t have sticky texture, on the opposite side it has a very delicate and soft texture and leaves the skin very soft and comfortables.

Removes the makeup very gently but nice effect, on the eyes leave it on a cotton disk for a few seconds to get better result.

Very delicate but effective.

There are so many micellar water on the market, I had tried so many of them and some of them are very effective but I wanted to add this one to the post cause it has a very gently feeling to it and of course gets my stamp #SQMust.

*Lola Makeup Cleansing milk/Cleansing gel, two makeup removes with the same effectivity but with two different textures, milk and gel.

With wetting ingredientes to moisture the skin and emollients agents that cleans and also nourish the skin this milk makeup remover leaves the skin soft and with a moisturizer effect, perfect for dry skins.

The gel texture gives a fresh feeling while removing the residue, purifying the skin, perfect for oily skin.

*Lola Makeup bifasic makeup remover, this makeup remover has two parts, one of them oily that removes very effective and softly the makeup even the waterproof.

With pH that leaves the skin soft and nourish the lashes, removes the makeup softly and is ophthalmologist tested.

Add a bit of product on a cotton disc and leave it on the eyes for a few seconds and will remove the makeup completely. The only problem is that for me leaves a oily sensation so I will have to use a cleanser after.

*Talika lash conditioner cleanser, an eye makeup remover that has a oil-free formula, with the same effectiveness than the bifasic makeup removers, moisture the eye area, leaving the lashes very moister and with time will strengthen them.

A product with a high efficiency that surprised me, I love the effectiveness and that doesn´t have oil on the formula so it doesn´t leave the eye are with a oily feeling. So because of that gets my stamp #SQMust.

    Magnífica entrada y muy completa. Me has tentado con un par de limpiadores…
    Yo también soy partidaria de limpiar después de desmaquillar, es la mejor forma de dejar la piel limpita.
    Enhorabuena por tu trabajo! sigue con ello!
    Un saludo!
