More often than not the last thing a lot of ladies feel like doing after a really long day is taking off their makeup (kicking off the heels / flats and finding some way to relax is the first priority.) Before they know it, they have woken up the next day to find yesterday’s makeup smudged all over their face. It’s one of the biggest beauty sins of all time. Ladies, please cleanse your face every night. Without fail. You have enough time. And for those of you that say you have no time this tip is for you: either take off your makeup as soon as those heels / flats come off or my personal favourite – take your makeup off before you take your bra off.

Removing eye makeup in particular is incredibly important (especially for the lovers of waterproof mascara). Leftover mascara can lead to eye infections, discoloration, and puffy eyes come the morning. My current go to eye makeup remover is the award-winning dual purpose JustBe cleansed Eye Makeup Remover – it’s like a spa trip for the eyes. Scottish Aromatherapist Gail Bryden has lovingly created JustBe Botanicals. Each product is born out of the desire to restore emotional balance and enhance a sense of wellbeing. The range is extensive and includes everything from cleansers to blemish control to body comfort cushions that ease headaches or help with aches to some divine sounding candles.

JustBe cleansed Eye Makeup Remover contains only eight natural skin-loving ingredients that consist of Coconut Oil, Coconut Solid, Jojoba Oil, Coco Glucoside, Beeswax, Vitamin E, Geranium Oil and Petitgrain Oil. Each ingredient blends seamlessly together to enable gentle and effortless removal of all eye makeup (including waterproof mascara), whilst also soothing the skin to provide the ultimate treatment for the eyes. Because this eye makeup remover contains coconut oil and jojoba oil it is incredibly moisturising, nourishing and it feels so luxuriously comfortable on the skin that it can not only be used to remove your eye makeup, it can also be taken across the whole face as a dual purpose rich cleanser to remove the rest of your makeup as a beautiful first cleanse.

This product is scented with the sweet, floral scent of geranium oil that helps to calm / relax the body and mind to balance the solar plexus and root the chakras (it is the perfect pick me up after long stressful days.)

How to use: Apply one pump to a damp cotton pad and gently press over the eyelid for at least a minute to enable the product to dissolve the makeup and then sweep away with a downwards action (never tug at the eye). Repeat on the other eye with a fresh cotton pad.

I suggest the JustBe cleansed Eye Makeup Remover for all skin types and ages, because it is so incredibly gentle and comfortable, due to the fact it is lovingly hand blended with nature’s gorgeous offerings. It is also free from alcohol, artificial colours, synthetic fragrances and parabens.

You can pick up the delightful, convenient and travel-friendly 30ml pump bottle for £15 from here.
