Confession time: I hate removing makeup. After a long day, removing makeup feels like such a chore, especially when removing long-wearing waterproof mascara, sunscreen, primer sprays or mineral powders. Many makeup removers are very oily yet still drying or irritating to the skin and require lots of skin and lash tugging they require to fully remove makeup, and so many removers leave an oily film on the skin that needs to be scrubbed off not to cause acne breakouts. I also dislike chemicals getting into my eyes while removing eye makeup. Botearoa Amazing Cleansing Balm tackles tough to remove mascaras, lip stains, and facial makeup while using organic, gentle ingredients that leave skin supple and smooth.
WHY BOTEAROA AMAZING CLEANSING BALM IS SPECIAL
Many of us hate removing our makeup, but it’s even worse if one has sensitive skin, eczema or rosacea, as it’s easy to irritate these skin conditions and even provoke a flare-up with too much rubbing with rough removers formulated with chemicals. But since mineral makeup is so popular for concealing these skin conditions, a stronger makeup remover is often required. Botearoa Amazing Cleansing Balm is gentle and soothing to the skin yet quickly melts off makeup without irritation or causing breakouts. Even those with sensitive eyes can use it to remove waterproof and regular mascara, as it will not sting the eyes. Few cleansers can handle both eye and face makeup and clean both off equally well like Botearoa Amazing Cleansing Balm can. It is a cleansing balm which unlike most makeup removers, it is a gentle cleanser, makeup remover and moisture all in one.
While it is sometimes tempting to go to sleep without removing makeup, it is highly irritating to the eyes. Even if it looks like your makeup has worn off after a long day, UV light testing shows that residual product remains and that it can damage the skin and cause premature aging.
Ever read the ingredient label on some makeup removers? It’s somewhat daunting. In addition to various chemicals and detergents, there are often unnecessary glutens and other allergy-inducing ingredients. Botearoa Amazing Cleansing Balm Contains natural organic ingredients such as Almond and Coconut Oil and Organic Essential Oils including:
- Peach Oil nourishes with Vitamin E and B without leaving skin greasy. Also used in massage oils, it helps efficiently melt makeup.
- Lavender Oil treats acne, wrinkles, psoriasis, and other inflammatory conditions, aids in blood circulation and is calming to skin.
- Rose Geranium Oil revitalizes and cleans congested and oily skin while being gentle enough for skin conditions such as eczema.
- Pomegranate seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids that help the skin repair itself as well as soften the skin
Coconut oil is not only highly emollient but is anti-microbial and provides a natural way to melt makeup. Straight coconut oil leaves a film on the skin and requires other active ingredients to assist it to cleanse and nourish the skin. But when combined with essential oils, it creates a three in one cream that cleanses, removes makeup and moisturizes skin.
What it does NOT contain:
- No pore clogging Mineral Oils made out of Petroleum
- No sulfates, gluten, parabens or other harsh chemicals
MY EXPERIENCE USING BOTEAROA AMAZING CLEANSING BALM
I wear deeply pigmented, dramatic mascaras such which are often difficult to remove. And I wear a black cream eyeliner that is also difficult fully remove and generally a lip stain with gloss on top. While I don’t wear very much foundation, I do set my face with a primer and wear sunscreen that requires more than just soap and water to fully remove. I find Botearoa Amazing Cleansing Balm is up to the task of my various makeup removal needs, completely removing my eye makeup without leaving a residue on my facial skin.
USE: Applying Botearoa Amazing Cleansing Balm starts out like a rich moisturizer and melts into the skin, turning into a silky liquid that left my skin feeling very soft without being greasy.
RESULTS: My eyes are not irritated when removing my liner, eyeshadow, and mascara, and it does a thorough job removing all traces of liner and mascara from the lashline. It does not leave a residue on my skin, yet my skin feels silky soft after use. There is a light somewhat lemony scent, that is from the rose geranium.
