clean

I’m the laziest about taking off my make up, aren’t you ?

Between my laziness and always forgetting my Crealine and my eye make up remover (I have no favorites in the category, deep inside a feeling that they’re all the same – which is a total lazy girl thought), it oftentimes happens that I take off my make up with a hotel soap (OMG TRAGEDY) and to find myself with a skin so dry that I cannot smile, or even open my mouth to shout “shit, my skin is dry !!!”, which’ll teach me to use that terrible soap + water mix.

So last time we chatted with our friend Alice, that not only has to remove her own make up but her model’s make up, but also totally understands how lazy a girl can be, and here’s what she told us…

Take it off. Start with an eye makeup remover. I like Bi-Facil by Lancome, it has oil in it. You put a little on a cotton pad and use it to remove your mascara. Follow up with a water-based or foaming cleanser. These are gentle and will remove any excess product.

The most amazing product I’ve found for cleaning your face is Eve Lom cleanser. You rub it over your whole face on dry skin and it cleans your skin, your pores and takes off your eye makeup.

Hey, lazy girls. First, do not use the makeup removing wipes. they give you a rash and make you break out and they do not clean your face. They will take the surface off but you still have to wash your face.

For someone in a real pinch, you can use Nivea Cream to remove your makeup. But you definitely have to wash your face afterwards!

Oil is your friend. Oil is great when you’ve got something heavier on your face like a waterproof mascara or a liquid eyeliner. I am really lazy with my mascara. One time I couldn’t be bothered to open my make up kit and I opened my cabinet and had Argan oil inside and I thought, “Oh, well that is oily, that will do it!” and it was amazing. Be careful not to get it in your eyes! Put a little on your fingertip and rub it across your eye. It really feels like it moisturizes my eye.

Once you wipe off your makeup, you need to take a cotton pad and some clean water and take off the oil. Don’t leave oil on your face because you’ll get spots.

I use John Masters Organics Argan Oil, it’s really good and really fast.

[Editor's Note: You know we've already given olive oil the stamp of approval!]

For your eyes. Use an oily make up remover. Definitely oily. I find that the watery ones for eye makeup take ages to get the makeup off and then your eyes are red and stingy The oily ones tend to dissolve it immediately. You want it off as fast as possible, you don’t want to be rubbing your eyes.

For your lips. Something moist like a baby wipe. When I’m removing off a girl for a makeup change I’ll put a lip balm on, let it sit for a minute and then I’ll take it off. If you just use a tissue, you end up rubbing it in more and your lips get dry. If you put something heavy, like an Aquaphor or a Homeoplasmine, on and wipe it off, it will take off.

    Me too! I can’t be lazy about taking my makeup off or I’ll get a zit immediately. I swear by glycolic-salicylic pads to cleanse my face — no water or washcloth required — and I get compliments on my skin a lot. Here’s what I use: http://www.skinstore.com/p-4577-topix-gly-sal-10-2-pads.aspx If you’re new to glycolic, start with the 5% strength once a day and work your way up.

  • Madi August, 1 2013, 9:15

    Since I lived in Spain, I´ve used COMMON OLIVE OIL for my complete body and face… low cost, effective and very moistening. A tip: after having a shower (when you are very wet) put a lot of olive oil … spilling everywhere… after that, dry and you will have a baby skin (of course I have 2 o 3 old towels for that….) Sorry about all of those expensive products… They don´t work for me! too much scent…

    On peut même laisser agir le savon quelques minutes en guise de masque ! Il est super pour peau seche ou grasse, eczéma, psoriasis, acné.
    On peut se laver les cheveux avec et même les dents !!

    Even though I try to be careful about removing all my make-up, I probably don’t do it the way I should because I still get pimples here and there sometimes. I’d like to try all the steps listed in this post, but let’s face it, I’m lazy and it looks like a lot of work and a lot of products!

    All of these tips are great. I am a model and have tons of makeup on my face most days for work. I use baby oil or any oil in my medicine cabinet to get my eye makeup off, then use Crealine for the rest of my face, finishing off with a cream cleanser. Those three steps have worked for me for years. Sometimes I feel that if you don’t use all three the makeup still kind of lingers on your face. For me that is one of the worst feelings, especially when getting into bed.

    Another fan or Avene’s Micellar Water here. It’s really soothing and removes makeup like a charm. However, I do not wear much foundation or waterproof eye makeup. For that, I like Chanel’s eye makeup remover.

    I have another tip, and I swear its not just for pimply teenagers. I often use Stridex acne pads to cleanse my face. They are alcohol free and available at any US drugstore. They contain salicylic acid which really cleanses the pores, prevents acne and gives the skin a smooth look. Low price but highly effective. Just don’t use them on the eyes!

    I might be in the running for ‘laziest girl’ award when it comes to makeup removal. I actually don’t even think about it. Never do I think, “oh I should have taken my makeup off” “oh that’s because I didn’t take off my makeup”. No. It’s more like, oh good morning, time to shower and then I’ll wash my face and throw on some lotion to get the extra mascara and eyeliner off. It’s bad. I’m too lazy. I don’t even care. I should. Hmm.

    Je trouve que ce qui marche le mieux c’est de frotter tout le visage à l’huile d’olive pour désincruster (yeux et visage), essuyer avec un cotton, puis se laver le visage avec du miel (comme si c’était un gel nettoyant de base: on applique le miel, on frotte bien puis on rince à l’eau tiède… ça part très bien – je m’en sers aussi le matin pour le visage, avant de prendre ma douche)

    c’est naturel, bon marché, efficace et plus respectueux des peaux fines et fragiles que la plupart des produits que j’ai pu tester.

    Mais non ce n’est pas si compliqué que ça:

    Pour les yeux un démaquillant yeux mais dernièrement j’utilise de la lotion miscellaire (Yves Rocher) pour démaquiller mes yeux (les démaquillants gras me voilent toujours la vue). Bizarre d’avoir à démaquiller la bouche, il ne me reste jamais de rouge.
    Puis sur le visage un lait démaquillant (Caudalie ou Nuxe) et une à deux fois par semaine quand j’ai envie de nettoyer un peu plus en profondeur: le Ultra moisturizing buffing cream with scrub particles de Kiehl’s ou celui à la papaye.
    Pour la lotion tonique inutile d’utiliser des produits chimiques: un hydrolat de rose, de bleuet ou de fleur d’oranger fait l’affaire.
    Une fois par semaine le masque purifiant de Caudalie et juste après le masque beauté miracle de Nebo (nebocosmetics.com) anti-peau sèche garantie. Simple, non?

    I can’t stand removing mascara, so I’ve been using Kevyn Aucoin curling mascara. It’s tube mascara (and so so great!) that comes off while I shower! Then any other make up I might be wearing gets removed when I wash my face with a cleansing oil. I like Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse, but any of the cleansing oils rinse clean so you don’t need another cleansing step afterwards.

    Jojoba oil is a great multi use oil : make-up remover, face and body moisturizer & for our hair! It does not leave the skin oily because the oil secreted from the jojoba is actually a “liquid” wax. The consistency on a chemical level is similar to that produced from our own skin, so when applied to the skin it doesnt leave a greasy feeling :) I personally use it for all three and love it!!! (I also love to use the olive oil too for my hair)

    There was an article this week on daily mail where a journalist went on a test not to remove her make-up for a month – the idea was to see if it’s really damaging for the skin – not to remove the make-up- or if it’s just a marketing thing in order to sell a load of products. Et ben, after that month she was said by the dermatologist that her skin has got 10 years older in 30 days! It was read, swollen, dry. Good news for her, the effects are reversible, as it was just a short period of ‘maltraitement’ but it’s scary….

    If I ever was traveling and forgot it I think I would have a heart attack. but I never do, so I’m safe ;) I will second you on the magical powers of oil though. If I have stubborn eye makeup I’ll sometimes use a little bit of jojoba oil on it. Jojoba oil is my favorite for the face, supposedly its cell structure is very similar to our skin’s so it absorbs really well. I actually use a few drops of jojoba oil every night instead of a heavy-duty eye cream. Works really really well, and saves me a pretty penny too!

    i have to say i wholeheartedly disagree with the take off the oil or you’ll get spots advice. quite the opposite. oil is the ultimate way to hydrate your skin and it’s what your pores were meant to absorb. think about it, you either have oily or dry skin, not creamy or dry skin. so i say slather that oil on every night and really give your skin the hydration it needs.

    Depuis quelques temps j’utilise pour me démaquiller la technique du layering très prisée par les japonaises (qui ont une peau sublime, n’est-ce pas ?).
    D’abord, on démaquille à l’huile ; ensuite, on enlève les résidus avec du savon ; puis on applique son eau micellaire ou sa lotion afin d’enlever le calcaire déposé par l’eau. Enfin, on met sa crème hydratante.
    Cela peut paraître long mais le résultat est bluffant. J’ai toujours eu une très jolie peau, mais je la trouve encore plus belle maintenant, et mes cils ont doublé de volume !
    Bon, ok, j’avoue que parfois j’ai un peu la flemme de faire tout ça… Alors dans ce cas je me démaquille vite fait à l’eau micellaire (la Créaline, c’est génial, mais l’eau nettoyante de Mixa fait très bien l’affaire) sans oublier ma crème hydratante. :)

    Lessons learned for sure!
    Lazy for sure, my skin is a mess if I do not cleanse it properly. Simple is sometimes the best. Fragrance is a huge problem for me, so I am often disappointed that I cannot use beautiful expensive products.

    Finding a cleanser that totally removes my makeup has been difficult. Using Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-free Cleanser and really happy with it. Used to use Methode Physiodermie and really noticed an improvement.

    Tried removing my make up with the wipes and yes, broke out in pimples! Yuck
    Tried creamy cleansers, but they didn’t remove all my makeup. Yuck
    Conclusion, need foamy cleanser and water. :D = squeaky clean
    I am a convert too, I now moisturize with oil :D = Happy skin

    My bathroom shelf has a pretty pot with baking soda: use it to brush my teeth, use it in my bath, use it to occasionally scrub my face.

    Then there is a pot of honey that I use with oil to condition my hair and on my face for a facial.

    There is also a pot of coconut oil: use it to remove eye makeup, use it on my scalp for treatment.

    Photo is amazing, she is beautiful.

    I’ve found that the most effective (including cost effective) and natural way to remove make up is with organic virgin coconut oil. Just use a small amount in your fingers, then massage around your face where the makeup lies. Follow by rubbing your eyes.. you can do it first but then you get a black face. Then I just rinse a muslin cloth or flannel in hot water, squeeze out the water and wipe off the makeup and oil. Repeat twice and whalahh, hello beautiful!

    I take off my makeup every night – no matter what time I get home – nothing worse than seeing two black splotches of eye makeup on my pillow in the morning if it’s left on! Jojoba oil is the absolute best product – I almost always use waterproof mascara and a liquid eyeliner and jojoba oil is the only thing that gets it off completely and quickly.

    niveau démaquillant pour les yeux, non tous ne se valent pas!
    J’ai testé le bi-facil de Lancôme, et j’ai été déçue (on ne peut pas mélanger bien les 2 phases ou ça mousse, et le démaquillage n’est pas ultra efficace).
    Par contre dans cette catégorie DGBPTB (démaquillant gras bi-phase trop bien), le top of the pops selon moi c’est le Démaquillant Yeux Waterproof RESPECTISSIME de LA ROCHE POSAY (efficace et pas agressif)

    > par contre, le gel moussant comment on l’enlève sans eau? (j’avais compris que l’eau c’est le Mal)

    Mais aucune de vous ne s’est jamais réveillée le matin avec les paupières toutes gonflées après avoir utilisé un démaquillant gras?

    I’ve used all sorts of expensive and high-flying mark creams for dry skin, but now for some time I only use Avene Lotion micellaire for cleaning and then, because I have very dry skin too, only the doctor prescribed and the pharmacy prepared a very simple cream with olive oil in whitebase (10% olive oil in whitebase = paraffin oil + vaseline + hydrophilic components).
    And wow, no tightened skin ever again.

    I love these posts – often learn something new or are reminded of something I’d like to try. I love (no water) Bioderma’s Sensibio H2O for evening cleansing (and weekend mornings before a jog), although do rotate with a liquid cleanser and water. I’ve not yet tried any oil – out of fear! But every time I read these, I get a little more encouraged. Thanks for all the great tips. Nice pic! Lovely eyes.

    Ces conseils sont bons pour enlever le maquillage de studio, ou type mariage… Mais au quotidien, la Créaline suffit pour moi, qui me maquille très peu. Si j’ai un peu plus forcé sur le teint, je couple avec un lait démaquillant et je finis avec de l’eau thermale. D’ailleurs, j’ai suivi le conseil de ta dermato en évitant l’eau du robinet sur mon visage et depuis, ouf, ma peau respire et n’est plus sèche avec des boutons (la schizo…), merci pour le super bon plan, donc! Et je garde celui-ci pour les grands soirs :-)

    With the summer here being very hot (Israel) Make up or not no way I could go to bed without washing my face. First with oil, I like to combine different oils and massage the face and then a foaming face wash and voila c’est parfait!

    Hi Garance!

    étant à New York pour 3 mois, sais tu ou je peux shopper la marque “eve lom” ?

    MERCI MERCI!!

    Rien de tel que le lait démaquillant NIVEA (à 4 euros !) qui fait une peau bien pulpy le matin et le démaquillant biphase SEPHORA waterproof !!!

    Looking for a good Argan oil – any recommendations?

  • Virginie August, 3 2013, 1:31 / Reply

    Bonjour Garance,

    Je ne suis jamais intervenue sur ton blog (que je trouve très beau tant dans le fond que dans la forme) mais là je ne pouvais m’empêcher! Je vis à La Réunion et ici tu as la peau sèche l’hiver et terriblement grasse l’été. On se maquille peu et tous les produits chimiques sont plus ou moins à proscrire ici étant donné l’indice UV : beaucoup de produit provoquent des taches sur le visgae à terme. Bref une vieille femme créole m’a un jour donné un de ses secrets suite à une remarque sur sa belle peau : de l’huile d’argan ou de l’aloe vera pour se démaquiller et de l’huile de figue de barbarie pour l’entretien de la peau et c’est tout! Ca fait un an que j’ai ce rituel et je te garantis que ma peau s’est transformée, pas de pb de transport c’est deux petits flacons et fini les multiples recherches de la crème idéal à 100 euros (ouui parce que si ça coûte cher c’est que ça marche, hein?). L’huile de figue de barbarie est un puissant remède contre les rides aussi, et contre les cernes, essaye c’est génial et l’odeur te rappellera sûrement La Corse comme moi elle m’a rappelé Nice, ma ville natale.
    A très bientôt Garance, de très loin je continue à te suivre!
    Virginie

    lazy girl makeup?! i take of the stubborn stuff with waterproof makeup wipes and then just wash it with a face soap (it’s from l’occitane so this is totally ok).
    no spots, no rashes and my face is pretty fine if i might say so myself.

    En ce qui me concerne je ne jure que par la Créaline, parfaite pour les yeux et tous le visage, je n’ai plus jamais eu aucun problème de peau depuis que je l’utilise (et dieu sait si ma peau est mon cauchemar quotidien depuis la naissance) mais je crois que je testerais l’huile juste pour améliorer l’effet sur le mascara, qui reste, même avec la Créaline, un peu difficile à enlever.
    Merci du tuyau!
    Bises

    Moi quand j’ai pas de démaquillant sous la main je mes sur un coton de l’eau florale pour nettoyer la peau (eau de rose par exemple) avec une goute de crème hydratante ! C’est assez efficace….! pour les yeux en tout cas ça marche bien :)

  • Cocotte August, 4 2013, 5:30 / Reply

    Bons conseils ; je tiens seulement à signaler que huile = boutons = FAUX ! :) en fait, certaines huiles sont comédogènes, et d’autres non. En l’occurence, l’huile d’argan n’est absolument pas comédogène : c’est l’huile que je mets tous les soirs sur mon visage, et j’ai une peau de bébé ;) !

    Nice tricks ; however, oil = spot = NOT TRUE ^^ ! Actually, some oils do cause spots, and some don’t. Here, as you talk about it, Argan oil doesn’t cause any skin trouble : I use this oil every night on my face, and have really no problem with any spot ;) !

    I disagree with the wipes part. I have very sensitive combination skin and have had so much success with the Aveeno face wipes–they are very gentle but effective. They’ve never made me break out, and I am break out prone. I actually find they almost exfoliate a little. I used a couple other wipes before I found the Aveeno ones, however, and didn’t like them as much. I use a separate eye make-up remover and then put on my night cream(s). then in the morning when I shower I use a light exfoliator.

    J’ai entendu parler de ce nettoyant de chez Eve Lom mais il est pas donné. Tu en es vraiment contente?

    Pour les yeux, le démaquillant Klorane au bleuet est parfait, y compris pour les eux sensibles, et pas trop cher…
