Many women, especially teenagers, overlook the importance of makeup removal in their beauty regimen. However, this key step leaves skin feeling so fresh and clean! It is essential to remove your makeup with a makeup remover before cleansing. This will prevent clogged pores, pimples, and breakouts and ensure that you clean your face properly. Even the minimalist beauty products you use are mostly waterproof, smudge proof, and long lasting, and they definitely need to be removed with a proper makeup remover to prevent any residue on the skin. Many consider makeup is causing damage to their skin in the form of pimples, dryness, and so on, but lack of proper makeup removal is the real reason behind these issues. I swear by makeup removers, and my recent pick is “Lotus Make-Up Remover for Eyes, Lips, and Face.”

Product Description: Gentle, creamy cleanser which glides over the skin smoothly and removes all signs of make-up & impurities and even waterproof make-up without leaving any oil residue behind.

My Experience with Lotus Make-Up Remover for Eyes, Lips, and Face
Packaging: This makeup remover comes in an elegant white and pink squeeze tube with a pink screw cap. A beautiful lotus picture is present, representing the brand. The actual product as well as the outer carton has all the necessary information, including the ingredients list. It is quite a sturdy and travel friendly tube. However, this opaque packaging makes it hard to find out how much is used.
Texture: The texture of this makeup remover is smooth and creamy. It has a cleansing milk consistency. It easily glides on the skin. It is white in color and also has a mild floral scent to it, which is pleasing to the nose. It does not dry up nor leave behind any oil residue. It is preservative free, soap free, alcohol free, and colorant free and is suitable for all skin types.
Performance: This makeup remover is to be applied all over the face and neck in circular movements, and once the makeup starts to melt off, it has to be wiped off using a damp cotton pad.
It is easy to use and quickly removes all the makeup. I mostly wear waterproof and long-lasting makeup, and it effectively removes all of them. However, a lot of effort and product is needed to remove waterproof eye makeup and dark lipsticks (the above picture clearly shows how waterproof kajals are still intact). Moreover, it burned and irritated my eyes very badly, which I absolutely hate. Thus, I am not sure if it will be suitable for sensitive eyes or contact lens wearers. It is enriched with extracts of Comfrey (known for its moisturizing, healing, and soothing properties) and Cucumber (which is rich in antioxidants that soothe skin irritation), thus it does not rip out any moisture nor make the skin dry. As it is preservative free, soap free, alcohol free, and colorant free, it has a very gentle formulation and keeps the skin soft and supple. This natural, 100% vegetarian makeup remover is free from animal ingredients and not tested on animals. Overall, it is an ideal makeup remover for removing light makeup.
