We all love putting on makeup, don’t we? But after returning home (with a cosy bed awaiting), it's a war, whether to curl inside the blanket or be a disciplined person and remove the makeup first. It's a universal problem, so don't be guilty of it.

What if we tell you there is a way to remove your makeup in less than 15 seconds? Uh-huh, you're in for a treat.

In this blog, let's explore the best makeup remover, why you need one, whether it's safe for your skin and more.

What is a makeup remover, and how is it different from your regular face wash?

A makeup remover serves a distinct purpose in a skincare routine. It targets the removal of makeup from the skin's surface. Unlike regular face washes, which focus on cleansing the skin of everyday impurities like dirt and oil, makeup remover dissolves and eliminates stubborn waterproof formulae and SPF.

One key difference between makeup removers and face washes lies in their formulations. Makeup removers often contain specialised ingredients that effectively break down makeup while nourishing your skin. 

The two-step routine using face wash and cleansing gel promotes clear skin, reduces the risk of breakouts, and helps maintain balanced and radiant skin.

Is it safe on the skin?

Absolutely, if it is made up of all natural ingredients!

For instance, Vilvah’s Milk Meltdown Cleansing Gel is infused with all-natural ingredients like coconut milk, vitamin E oil and plant-based fatty acids that are safe and easy to use.

Coconut Milk serves as a luxurious addition to the cleansing gel. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids, it offers deep hydration, replenishing the skin's moisture barrier and restoring suppleness. 

Its gentle yet effective cleansing action removes impurities and makeup residue without stripping the skin of its natural oils. 

A powerhouse antioxidant, Vitamin E plays a pivotal role in skin care, offering various benefits for the skin. 

Vitamin E boasts hydrating properties, locking in moisture to prevent dryness and dehydration. Its anti-inflammatory properties aid in calming and soothing irritated skin, making it an excellent ingredient for those with sensitive or reactive skin types. 

Plant-based fatty acids are essential building blocks for healthy skin. These lipid molecules help maintain the skin's protective barrier, preventing moisture loss and enhancing hydration levels. 

Furthermore, plant-based fatty acids contribute to the overall suppleness and elasticity of the skin, imparting a youthful radiance and improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.

Which is the best makeup remover?

While the market is flooded with many makeup removing products, finding a genuine one becomes daunting. 

Parabens, SLS and petroleum distillates are some of the harmful ingredients that you may find in some of the makeup removers. 

But Vilvah's cleansing gel is one product that you can trust. It is free from alcohol & aldehydes, silicones and surfactants. The cleansing gel is formulated using all-natural ingredients like coconut milk, Vitamin E oil and plant-based fatty acids. These ingredients in the makeup remover are safe and nourishing for your skin. 

This gel-to-milk formula gently melts away your stubborn makeup and SPF in just 15 seconds. It is non-comedogenic, fragrance and colourant free. 

Why do you need makeup remover pads?

Cleansing or makeup remover pads are designed to effectively remove makeup, dirt, and impurities from the skin. Their ultra-soft texture helps lift away debris without causing irritation or damage to the skin's surface.

Cleansing pads offer a convenient and portable solution for cleansing skin, especially on the go or travelling. For a sustainable solution, you can also choose a reusable cleansing pad.

How do you use a makeup remover effectively?

Begin with Clean Hands

Wash your hands thoroughly before starting the makeup removal process. It helps prevent transferring bacteria or dirt onto your face.

Apply Cleansing Gel

Dispense an appropriate amount of cleansing gel and gently massage using fingertips onto the face and neck to melt out dirt and grime.

Swipe Away Makeup

Using the cleansing pad, gently swipe it across the skin. Avoid rubbing or tugging at the delicate eye area, as it can lead to irritation. 

Cleanse and Rinse

Once you've removed your makeup with a remover, follow up with a gentle face wash to thoroughly cleanse the skin and remove any remaining traces of makeup, dirt, or oil. Rinse your face with lukewarm water. Pat dry with a clean towel.
