Question of the Week: How do you remove your makeup? Traditional makeup removers, cleansing oils, balms, towelettes, natural oils or…?

Answer: For my whole makeup life, it’s been with regular ol’ cleanser. BUT, I just started using Lather’s Chia Seed & Passion Fruit Cleansing Oil and am pretty blown away. First, that my oily skin can tolerate an oil. And second, because it’s really fab! The healthy oil melts your makeup and when you add water, it turns into a milky wash. Good stuff.

Here’s what happened with the League this week…

Clumps of Mascara – Yep, Fall collections are rolling out and I, for one, am loving what I’m seeing so far. Zoya’s Focus collection is rich, opaque and ooooh, have you seen that brown?

Phyrra – Neutral lovers rejoice! The Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette palette was made for you!

Prime Beauty – knows that we’ll be saying buh bye to summer soon but that doesn’t mean you have to lose your hard earned tan. Keep your bronze goddess status with NKD SKN Tinted Liquid Tan – she’s giving away 2 bottles!

we heart thisWould you spend $195 on a pillow? What if I told you it helped prevent wrinkles?

  1. I use Burt’s Bees wipes–the peach ones. I take all of my makeup off with that and then I typically use my Murad AHA/BHA exfoliating cleanser to get the rest (I sometimes use the cleanser as a face mask and rub it into my skin and let it sit there for 10 minutes before washing it off—it makes my skin nice and glow-y).

  2. I am a big believer of double cleansing. I use a gentle cleanser to get off the makeup and sunblock. Then, I use a cleanser to do its job to really clean my face. It depends on how my skin is doing depending whether it is combination or oily what cleanser.

    @krista – I love Murad AHA/BHA cleanser. I am going to try your 10 minute tip.

  3. I go between Philosophy – Purity Made Simple & Philosophy Just Release Me Dual-Phase Oil-Free Makeup Remover, and girl…..Ponds Cold Cream…Thats right.. I’ve mentioned Coty and Ponds in two responses today.. I am my Grandmothers girl all the way :-) These old school faves are amazing on a budget & they do the trick.

  4. I use Dermalogica’s pre-cleanse lately, than another cleanser, (usually with Kiehl’s calendula deep cleansing foaming face wash) to really get good and clean! I love the way my skin feels with the oil precleanse.
