I’m a huge advocate of using oils to remove makeup but if you’re like me and already have quite oily skin finding the right oil can be a real struggle.
I’ve tried a few different oils in the past, and I’ve got a few in the pipeline, but so far my very favourite is the Coconut and Argan Cleansing Oil from family favourite Burt’s Bees. And when I say it’s very favourite, I mean it.
A combination of natural oils makes removing makeup smell like a spa experience and Vitamin E rich coconut leaves my skin lovely and soft but best of all it doesn’t leave any oily residue. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now and can firmly say that this is the first oil I’ve ever used that hasn’t made my skin break out.
HOW TO USE & WHERE TO BUY
The great thing about face oils is that there are no rules! You don’t have to use this Burt’s Bees oil as a makeup remover but it works best with my skin if I rinse it off after so I use this in the evenings. So with that in mind, here’s MY face oil routine:
My eyes are quite sensitive so I only ever use Micellar water to remove mascara, so that’s step 1. From there I then massage a few drops of oil onto my face, making sure to rub it into all the little creases that get dry this time of year (and don’t forget face oils are good for rubbing into lips for a little extra moisture). After I’m happy everything is covered, I let it soak in for a minute then wash off with warm water – and done!
You can get Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Oil with Coconut & Argan Oils from most online skincare shops or from the Burt’s Bees website here for £16.99 for 177ml.
