I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a very good relationship with eye makeup removing products. Whether I buy wipes or liquid formulas, they all take a million tries to take my eyeliner off and always end up irritating the skin around my eyes. The only eye makeup remover I’ve ever really liked is Clinique’s Take The Day Off, but I don’t want to spend as much for makeup remover anymore.
So for the last few months, I’ve turned to a much cheaper and less irritating alternative: baby oil. This thing is incredibly cheap, feels great on your skin and takes off even waterproof mascara/eyeliner. I absolutely love it. The only downside is that sometimes the makeup gets stuck to the oil, leaving you with a bit of raccoon face. My solution to this, is that I use the baby oil on my eyes first, then wash my face with some face foam and finish off with some hydrating lotion. Since I’ve been doing this, I’ve had no more redness around my eyes after taking my makeup off. If you’re looking for things to reduce spending on you should try this.
Do you have other alternatives to beauty products? Let me know in the comments!
Finally! The day has come when I have a Forever 21 in the city where I live! I haven’t been so lucky since I was in college back in Florida. The last time I felt so happy about a store opening, was when Zara finally opened in Taipei; but having a Forever 21 in Shanghai is the best thing that could have ever happened to a shopaholic/trend loving/under a tight budget/20 something girl! (Asides from winning the lottery, of course).
