The Ultimate Makeup Remover

Estee Lauder Take It Away Makeup Remover

 My go-to makeup remover has to be hands down the Garner Miceller Cleansing water (see review here). However, recently I have been reaching for the Estée Lauder Take It Away makeup remover. I’ve been really enjoying using a cream product to take off my makeup and I love how this one leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth.

I bought this product from Boots a few weeks ago for £22 and since, I've been using it nearly every day. I apply it onto my face when it is dry and it quickly breaks down all of my makeup-even my mascara! I then wash my face and I usually will use a cotton pad afterwards to just wipe around my eyes to make sure I have removed all of my eye-makeup.

The remover is white and has a lotion-like consistency. It removes all of my makeup really easily and gently. It is perfect for me, as I have sensitive skin. This leaves my skin feeling really soft, like I have already applied moisturiser, which I love as most makeup removers leave my skin feeling dry.

I bought the full size 200ml bottle which isn't really very handy for travelling I must admit, but overall, this has definitely become one of my skincare staples!

What's your go-to makeup-remover?

Battle Of The Mascaras

Maybelline Lash Sensational and Lash Sensational Luscious
One of my holy-grail mascaras has to be the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara. So when I saw the Lash Sensational Luscious mascara in Superdrug the other week, I had to pick it up and give it a go! The Luscious mascara contains an oil blend which nourishes the lashes and promises the same full fan effect as the original Lash Sensational.
 Firstly, in terms of packaging, I personally much prefer the new Luscious mascara with it having a matte black finish and rose gold detailing!  
 Maybelline Lash Sensational vs. Lash Sensational Luscious
 The Luscious mascara has a long, straight plastic wand that comes to a tapered point, whereas the original mascara has a long, curved plastic wand. Personally, I prefer the original mascara’s brush as I find that it is better for curling my lashes and creating a nice, separated effect.
 In terms of the formula of the two mascaras, I would say they are both an inky black colour and they both dry very quickly. The Luscious mascara applies quite thick and heavy on the lashes, which makes it harder to apply a second coat without it looking clumpy. I would also say that the Luscious mascara is harder to take off than the original Lash Sensational mascara. The Luscious mascara provides a lot more volume and length to the lashes, yet the lashes appear less curled than the original mascara, in comparison.
 Overall, I think my favourite is still the original Lash Sensational mascara just because it is a lot easier to apply, with it not clumping up as easily as the new version. I much prefer the brush of the original Lash Sensational. However, the Luscious mascara gives a lot more volume and length the lashes, so I have been enjoying layering the two. I start with the Luscious mascara for the initial volume and length, and then finish off with the original one to separate my lashes. I find that the two in combination work best!
I hope that you found this post useful! Let me know your favourite mascara in the comments.
