Technology & Cleansers have advanced. Big Time.
Here is a quick update on what's available these days:
Try: ColorBar Bi-Phase Make Up Remover, Rs 650 (These days these are on sale, flat 250/- Rs off, so you will get them for 400 Rs); Mary Kay Oil-Free Eye Make-up Remover, Rs 530.
2. Make-up wipes: Easy to use, these are cotton or cloth pads pre-drenched in make-up remover. Simply pull out one and swipe; perfect for travel.
Try: Kara Deep Pore Cleansing Wipes; L’Oréal Paris DermoExpertise De-Maq Expert Innovations, Rs 600.
3. Make-up remover & facewash: This is a make-up remover applied much like a facewash – smooth it on, use a little water to foam it up and wash off for clean, make-up free skin – works for oily skins.
4. Cleansing milk: A milky concoction, this cleanser is smoothed over face, massaged cotton – ideal for dry and mature without drying. Splash some water thereafter.
Try: Lotus Herbal’s LemonPure Cleansing Milk, Rs 145 (80ml); Lakme Deep Cleansing Milk; Himalaya Deep Cleansing Milk
5. Cleansing Oil: This can be something as exotic as avocado oil to plain ole' baby oil. This dissolves most make, however it does have the potential to block pores with a mixture of make-up dissolved in oil.
Try: Biotique Almond Cleansing Oil
6. Plain Moisturizer/Cold Cream: I used this trick for a very long time. Basically I just took all the moisturisers/cold creams/cremes that didn't suit me and used them to remove make-up.
Try: Lakme Strawberry Creme. (This thing didn't suit me as a moisturiser at all, but it makes a very delicious smelling cleanser)
