Since I switched back to my winter makeup, a heavier blend of bb cream and moisturizing balm, I’ve been having a difficult time removing all of it. I use makeup wipes. I wash with soap and water. But still, I feel like I’m not getting all of it off.
I’ve tried many makeup removers over the years, and I’ve hated most of them. I use them until the bottle runs out, and then I never replace it. A friend suggested that I try this one (she received it in her Birchbox), but I was sure I would hate it too. I’ve tried removing my makeup with olive oil, and didn’t like it, so why would this makeup remover from Sprout, which is essentially a blend of oils, be any different?
After a week spent using this product, I have to say that I’m fairly impressed. It removes even stubborn eye makeup easily, and it doesn’t leave my eyes red and itchy. It also removes the stubborn makeup that use to fill in my brows, a product previously unremovable without the use of a blowtorch.
And, it is probably too soon to say this, but I think the essential oils are actually helping my skin. I had a scratch on my cheek that would usually take a week or more to heal, but since I’ve been using the Sprout remover, it’s healed up nicely.
Lastly, the product also doubles as a light moisturizer that is great for sensitive skin. My friend has been using it on her skin since the weather turned breezy, and she says it has really helped stave off the winter dryness.
