That said, makeup removal has never been my cup of tea. Do I want to look amazing? Hell, yes. Do I want to perfectly cleanse my face at the end of a long day? Not when my bed, another five episodes of Friday Night Lights, and one too many bags of popcorn are calling my name.
Thankfully, I discovered a go-to makeup removal method using only coconut oil and a micellar water. I love Bioderma Crealine H2O Micelle Solution because it’s made for sensitive skin like mine. I start by taking a dollop of coconut oil from Trader Joe’s and massaging it into my skin for about 30 seconds. This breaks down all of my makeup — even pesky-to-remove waterproof mascara — and leaves my skin feeling moisturized and soft. (There's a reason this stuff has legions of famous fans.)
Next, I drench a large cotton round, preferably an exfoliating one, with my micellar water and remove what remains. The water is ultra-gentle and expunges all traces of product. Voilà. Simple, fast, totally effective, and perfect for ladies like me (a.k.a. a little lazy and a lot in love with Tim Riggins). How do you remove your makeup? Ready to try my foolproof method?
