Happy New Year 2009! If you partied hard last night, or maybe just partied 🙂 , I hope you all remembered to remove all your makeup before going to bed. After some last minute planning, I had a blast last evening with a new friend, Kahani of Soloverly at The Curve. Yes, it was fun 🙂
I used to use cleansing oils to remove all my makeup every evening just before my shower and when I say all, I mean ALL including eye makeup. It was as a result of 2 things : (1) running out of eye makeup remover and (2) laziness 😛
However, I’ve recently been told that its not a good idea to use just cleansing oils to remove eye makeup, because the skin around the eye is very thin and delicate. When you use oil on the eye area you have to massage it to remove all the makeup and stubborn mascara and this might result in premature wrinkles and lines around the eyes. Also, cleansing oils might contribute to milia or oil seeds around the eye area.
Since I’m vain 😛 I decided to pick up an eye makeup remover and after my facial at my regular Kanebo International salon one evening, I spotted the Kanebo Eye Makeup Remover.
The Kanebo Eye Makeup Remover comes in a cute squat square blue-green bottle that’s slightly opaque. You will notice that there are 2 layers of liquid in the bottle. This is an oil based remover to help remove the most stubborn of makeup.
