Because panda eyes are less flattering than would be convenient and mascara-stained pillow cases are not the thing, removing eye make up after a day of choosing to wear it is a fact of life. Facts of life are always more fun when they can be combined with positive choices and plant-based goodness, so I created this dedicated make up remover, which removes the maquillage of a day and allows the delicate skin of the lips and eye area to breathe and renew while I sleep. Although designed for eyes and lips it can also be used on the whole face.
It’s a simple, fuss-free formulation, with no added irritants – just two plant oils (the cold-pressed oil from the seeds of the tea plant and light, nourishing grapeseed oil, plus a very gentle emulsifier (derived from coconut and fruit sugars) to lift & remove make up – this means it actually lifts make up away rather than just smearing it around. Leaves skin gently clean & not dried out.
Uses & Directions:
Apply using a damp cotton pad or similar (the wetness of the pad emulsifies the oil to lift make up away cleanly).
Gently wipe over closed eyes & lips to remove make up.
For an added overnight boost, try the deeply relaxing Frankincense & Tea Seed Magic Eye Night Serum.
GREEN TEA SEED (CAMELLIA OLEIFERA) OIL: Packed with antioxidants, phytochemicals, caffeine, magnesium, this moisturises and restores the delicate skin of the eye area.
GRAPESEED OIL: Along with the tea seed oil, grapeseed forms the base of the formulation, and together they effortlessly glide make up away without friction or dragging the skin. It’s full of vitamin E and acts as a light moisturiser without clogging the skin.
SUNFLOWER OIL: Rich in Vitamins A, D & E & collected from the seeds of this exquisite sun-worshipping flower, sunflower oil is light & gentle – nothing heavy here!
VITAMIN E: Vitamin E is an antioxidant which may work to prevent the damage of free radicals, thereby slowing signs of ageing. So I thought I’d go ahead and add extra, even though the oils above already contain it. You’re welcome.
CAPRYL/CAPRYLYL GLUCOSIDE: A glucose alkyl ether which is ECOCERT Certified, preservative free and free of impurities. This surfactant allows water and oil to mix, which is what we need in order to clear away make up without leaving an oily residue, and is made from coconut & fruit sugars.
