Empty of the Week: My Favorite Makeup Removers

Let’s go through my trash … er, talk about products I’ve used up!

Meet my two favorite makeup removers: the Simple Cleansing Micellar Water and the Sonia Kashuk makeup remover.

The Simple cleansing water has taken over the place of my long-beloved, but hard to find and much more expensive Bioderma. (You should’ve seen me walking into a pharmacy during our trip to France – the fact that Bioderma was in front of my face on an actual shelf was mind-boggling). It’s super gentle and natural, and I put it on a cotton pad every night to remove all my face makeup easily.

Sonia Kashuk is reserved for taking off my mascara – bareMinerals Lash Domination and Benefit’s They’re Real do not mess around, and they need something with a little more elbow grease to remove them completely. I struggled for years to find a remover that was strong enough, but did not burn my sensitive eyes. Finally, I found this stuff – unfortunately you can only find it at Target, but a trip to the mecca is a small price to pay for the perfect remover.

Empty of the week conclusion? Definite repurchase. And not just repurchase, more like “I have this shit back stocked until infinity because heaven forbid I run out” kind of repurchase.

Empty of the Week: Bobbi Brown Corrector

Let’s go through my trash … er, talk about products I’ve used up! 

You think you have under eye problems? Oh, honey. I’ll show you under eye problems. I’m one of those people who just constantly looks like they’re recovering from a black eye. Thus, the quest for the magical combination of under eye products that will make me look like a real, rested person is never ending. But, I have found one step that won’t be changing any time soon, and that’s the Bobbi Brown Corrector.

I go through one of these probably every two to three months, for a good reason. Whether I’m wearing full face makeup or not, a swipe of this goes a long way to eliminating the blue tones under my eyes. I personally wear the shade extra light bisque (because the tone of my skin is what’s commonly known as glow in the dark). I can’t recommend it enough – it’s something that I always have back ups of, because heaven forbid I run out and someone thinks a zombie attack is happening.

Empty of the week conclusion? Definite repurchase. GO GET YOU SOME.
