Does Cleanser Remove Makeup?

Posted by Halle Homel on

We know you love makeup, but what happens when you’re ready to take it off? Most makeup products these days are waterproof, sweat proof, and everyday-proof, which means you need to remove them with more than just water. But can you use your facial cleanser to remove makeup? Let’s dive into this, so you can know exactly the best way to remove makeup gently and effectively.

What is the best way to remove waterproof makeup?

Removing waterproof makeup doesn’t have to be hard. Waterproof makeup usually comes off easily with warm water and soap. Make sure you remove it gently with either a makeup remover pad, or a soft washcloth, so that you don’t irritate your skin at all!

Can I use facial cleanser to remove makeup?

You absolutely can, and in fact, it’s probably better for your skin to remove makeup this way, rather than just using regular soap. This will help to prevent allergic reactions, irritation, and general sensitivities to the scents in soap.

What cleanser should I use to remove makeup?

We love our Aloe E Cleanser for gently washing your face, while removing makeup. This cleanser is fantastic because it also adds beautiful moisture and hydration to your face while it cleanses. This cleanser is vegan and cruelty free, and uses real Hawaiian aloe along with other Hawaiian botanicals such as Spirulina and Coffee Berry Fruit Extract to create the perfect balance of nutrients for your everyday use.
