It varies a bit between 2 and 3. Usually aloe/vit E infused baby oil or coconut oil for eye makeup, then coconut oil massaged into my whole face to break up everything else, put it adds needed moisture to the next step, Equate Sensitive Skin Facial Wipes. This is a new routine that I began a week ago, and it has been leaving my face super clean, but not one little bit dryed out or irritated! If coconut oil: 2, if baby oil: 3.

3. I use a waterproof eyemakeup remover, then I do a double cleanse with a hydrating cleanser, then a more clarifying foamy one. But if my skin is dry, I skip the last step

1) The Face Shop Face it White Lip & Eye Remover Waterproof OR Neutrogena Oil Free Makeup Remover
2) (optional) Microfiber cleansing cloth with water
3) The Face Shop’s Rice Water Cleansing Oil
4) Dermalogica Microfoliant (with optional clarisonic plus)

I use up to three. It depends on how much I’m wearing. I’ll use a wipe and if it’s still pretty much on there, I’ll break out an oil and then a gel.

I used to use 2, one for mascara and one for my face. I had a mascara that was super hard to get off but it’s fabulous, give me the look of long lashes that I don’t have, I tried 3 different removers before I found 1 that worked. Then one day I ran out & forgot to get more but I had coconut oil, I tried it & it worked better than all of the others! It takes of the mascara & my face makeup too & leaves my skin so soft & beautiful! I will never waste money on faces cleaners again!

I personally use two:
– MUFE Sens’eyes for my eye makeup, this is the best remover I know! For me it works wayyyyyyyyyyyy better than any dual phase remover out there. It doesn’t leae a greasy residue on the eyes, plus it does the job for you as you just have to leave it for a few seconds and wipe away.
– and for my face, Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm. That’s the one I’m currently using but I switch around with oils or other similar make up removing balms.

Two. I recently tried double cleansing to remove my makeup and I love the results. At the moment, I use Bobbi Brown’s Cleansing Oil on dry skin after my makeup remover. Then I follow up with my Lancome Milky Cream Cleanser

Just one – QV – an Australian cruelty free brand that is sold at our Chemists at a very reasonable price. It is a creamy cleanser and it takes off everything.

Typically 2: something for the eyes, and another product for the face. Occasionally I’ll use 3 if I do a double-cleanse.

Sometimes it’s 2, but I chose 3 for if I’m using my Clarisonic at the time (which is more than half the time). I use a makeup wipe to remove most of my face makeup and eyeshadow, an eye makeup remover with cotton rounds to remove mascara, and will make sure it’s all off by using my Clarisonic with whatever cleanser I have at the time.

I voted one, as I use just one product, cleansing balm or oil to remove all the makeup, after I cleanse with something Caroline Hirons would call second cleanser. Usually I know what my clenasers are called, but it’s really late, and I’m half asleep, I think, I just felt I needed to read all news for Temptalia befor sleeping. I can be weird, like that. Am probably hopeing for some makeup related dreams 🙂

I use a facial oil to get rid of face makeup, a separate eye makeup remover and then follow it with a Micellar water to ensure everything is gone. It may be a little OTT but I find it works for me

I use 2, sometimes 3… wipes because they remove my eye makeup so well, second a cleanser and sometimes if I don’t feel clean enough, another cleanser.

I always love to double cleanse, so at least an oil cleanser and a gentle cleanser. If I’m wearing eye makeup, I’ll also likely mop up my point makeup with an actual makeup remover, so 2-3!

I use coconut oil for everything – removes waterproof makeup in a pinch! Then I use a baby wipe to make sure my face is clean. So does that count as one or two? Haha!
