Facial Cleansers & Makeup Removers
Facial Cleansers & Makeup Removers Hey guys welcome back, I’m Felicia and I’m Rowena, and today we’re gonna be talking about cleansing the face, pretty straightforward right, take off the grime, take off the dirt with a simple cleanser, and you’re good to go, well actually it’s not that easy, and it’s not that simple, because there are so many products out there, have you ever walked through the aisles or go to stores even when you’re online, you see all these products, different types of facial cleansers to clean your face, to wash your face, to take off the makeup, and you’re like what are all these for, what is best for sensitive skin ,what is best for oily skin, what is best for dry skin, because let’s be real, at the end of the day, all we want is for our skin to be nice and silky and smooth, and the first and most important step is actually cleansing, because if you don’t cleanse properly, you’re stuck with the grimes and the oils that are just stuck on your face from the day, and if you don’t really buff it away with a good cleanser, this is what causes acne, what causes irritation and inflammation on the skin. So today we’re gonna talk about six products, how well they take off makeup, how well it cleans your face.
How well they work, and if it can actually take off the day’s grime, so that it will prevent you from breaking out, which product is the best, we’re going to explore things like micellar water, things like cleansing oils, gel cleansers, cleansing balms. So before we jump in, make sure you’ve liked, make sure you’ve subscribed to our channel, so every time we come out with a new video, you learn something new, and make sure all notification is on. Cleansing oil this is my favorite one, because I feel like with oily skin and a person who wears a lot of waterproof makeup, this is just one of those that work the best, so how does it actually work, oils in the product bind with other oil-based residue that’s on your skin, like sebum SPF foundation and soot, which is like pollutants on your skin, water-based cleanses aren’t actually capable of removing these oil-based debris, because oil and water don’t mix, so what the cleansing oil does is that it will emulsify when it comes in contact with water on your face, and sometimes when you start rubbing it into the skin, it can turn into a milky texture, and then can be easily rinsed off, and a tip to wash it off is with lukewarm water and not cold, so you’re not left with that oily greasy film on your face, so people with combination or oily, it’s actually one of the best things that you can also use, so this is how you typically use cleansing oils.

First you want to take one to two pumps of the cleansing oil in your palm, and then you want to massage it in between your hands for a bit, and then you want to really gently rub it over your entire face, and what this is gonna do is really slowly but surely break down everything, and I feel like if you have high coverage foundation, if you have a lot of eye shadow, if you have liquid liner, it just really gently breaks down everything, and then once you feel like it’s all broken down. I’ll take like one swipe of water, and then kind of emulsify it first, so if you’ve done it right, you should really feel that everything is off. So for the pros, oil cleansers effectively dissolve dirt and makeup without leaving the skin feeling tight, and makes your skin glow, it also contains antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients, hydrating and soothing the skin with essential fatty acids.Fatty acids, fatty acids Alright so the biggest con with cleansing oils is that it’s not the only and final step, once again this is where double cleansing came in, because this is the first step in the double cleansing process. If you don’t wash it away after, you’ll be left with clogged pores, and things like under the eye that build up, like milia or this could cause breakouts if you don’t probably cleanse it away, so here are some cleansing oils that we love. There’s Shu Uemura Skin Purifier, the Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing and the Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil, so naturally following on from the cleansing oil is the second step of the double cleansing process, and that’s using a liquid cleanser.
