Best makeup remover for oily skin

So which is the Best makeup remover for oily skin? Is removing makeup with a makeup remover really necessary? Well, They say “it’s not the make-up that gives you breakout or causes clog pores, but it’s the residue of the product left behind when not removed thoroughly”. 

Yes, washing your face with a face wash or taking off your makeup using makeup remover wipes alone is not enough to get rid of all the makeup products from your face. To get makeup residue off, you’ll need to invest a little time and a good makeup remover. If you have oily skin, this helps lower the chances of breakouts. 

Here are some best makeup removers for oily skin that I personally love and recommend. 

Garnier micellar oil-infused cleansing water :

Best makeup remover for oily skin

Starting with Garnier micellar oil-infused cleansing water– This is the best makeup remover for beginners and even professionals for daily use. It removes makeup (even waterproof) in a few wipes and doesn’t leave any oil traces on the skin. Priced at Rs. 225 for 125 ml, it is a good makeup remover to invest in (Considering the price point and the way it works) Garnier micellar oil-infused cleansing water is also, dermatologically tested & suitable for all skin types.

Face shop makeup remover oil:

In my list for some Best makeup remover cleaning oil, Face shop makeup remover oil stands first. Priced at Rs. 1190, this cleansing oil is enriched with rice extracts, rice bran and jojoba oil dissolves and eliminates heavy makeup, dirt, and impurities skin feels softer, smoother, and looks bright and refreshed. The price point is a lot, as compared to Garnier makeup remover, however, it is completely worth it. I have written a whole dedicated review blog post on the Face shop makeup remover oil. Read here.

Unlike Garnier micellar makeup remover, I use the face shop makeup remover oil to get rid of stubborn makeup and to clean up my party makeup. If you are into double cleansing, you need to add this to your double cleansing first step! If you haven’t been trying the double cleansing method, READ HERE.

Lotus Make Up Bi Facial Waterproof Makeup Remover:

Lotus Make-Up Bi Facial Waterproof Makeup Remover is something I recently started using it. It is priced at Rs 299 for 100 ml. It is a super gentle oil-free makeup remover and works effectively to remove waterproof makeup

Key Ingredients:

Cucumber: Keeps skin cool, hydrated, and calms from any irritation.

Witch Hazel: Acts as an astringent to help shrink your large pores, soothe skin and reduce inflammation.

Aloe Vera: Contains antioxidants and high anti-inflammatory properties. It helps treat skin burns, acne, and dry skin.

How to use makeup remover?

Pour the makeup remover onto a cotton pad, press the cotton pad gently for a few seconds, wipe away all your makeup in one go. Wash your face once removed the makeup.

Alternative to makeup remover?

Times, when you run out of your makeup remover, you can try Vaseline or coconut oil. However, I suggest using coconut oil or vaseline to take off just the eye makeup and lipstick, and not the entire face makeup if you have oily and acne-prone skin. The thick consistency of the oil tends to leave residue and clog pores in the long run.

So, these were a few Best makeup removers for oily acne-prone skin that I had tried and absolutely love. What’s your favorite makeup remover? Let me know in the comments below 🙂

How to do an easy smokey eye

How to create an easy smokey eye?

Creating a smokey eye can seem or feel really difficult to achieve when you are just learning makeup. Well, here is a super easy smokey eye tutorial for beginners, which I bet will help you achieve that soft smokey eye makeup looks effortlessly in under 10 mins.

How to do an easy smokey eye

Quick smokey eye makeup look using kajal

To create this look, I am using the Himalaya kajal. You can use any cream-based kajal, I like the Himalaya kajal as it’s herbal, affordable, and one of the best kajal for smokey eyes. You can even try Lakme eye kajal if you are looking for something in a similar price range.

First, I’ll be adding some kajal on the outer corner of my eyelid. Then I am going to gently smudge the kajal, ensuring it stays just inside the corner of my eyelid.

Next, I am taking a black eyeshadow, and using a flat brush, I am picking some products. With a gentle motion, I am dabbing the product over the smudged kajal. 

To blend the product, I am taking a brown base eyeshadow, and using a fluffy brush I am blending it all together. 

I am then going to take a glitter eyeshadow and apply it from the inner corner to the mid of the eyelid.  

After eyeliner and mascara, I am taking a tiny bit of highlighter and adding it to the inner corner of the eyelid. That’s it


Do smokey eyes look good on everyone?

Smokey eyes can look great on everyone, provided it’s done in a way that complements the eye shape of the person.
For small or hooded eyes, try to keep it subtle and go for a thin liner.

You don’t need a ton of products to create a smokey eye especially when you are in the learning phase. If you have a cream-based kajal, black and brown eyeshadow palette, mascara, and eyeliner you can play around and try to achieve that soft smokey eye. 🙂

Mythic oil review & how to use it

Mythic oil review: Sharing my personal experience and thoughts about the product after using it for a year! 

Mythic oil review

So, I bought this bottle of Mythic oil last year, and on the third month of using it, I was thinking about writing this post, however, I kept procrastinating. I can be a lazy B*M at times ~Rolling eyes~

Anyway, now that I have completely used a bottle of L’Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Huile Originale Argan Oil, I feel I should share my honest review on Mythic oil and how it works on hair. 😀

Before I share my thoughts and experience, let’s have a look at the product description. 

About the product: 

L’Oreal Mythic Oil is a professional multi-tasking nourishing oil. This professional hair management is empowered by highly concentrated oils – the secret of your hairdresser to breathe nourishment and shine onto the fiber without weighing hair down. Its formula, highly concentrated with natural argan oil, softens and protects hair. Its lightweight fluid texture facilitates hair-drying for silky magnificent hair from root to tips. Ideal for detangling hair after shampooing and illuminating it before or after blow-drying. Professional and hair-salon proof, it provides 48h anti-humidity and anti-frizz protection*, along with heat protection to heated appliances up to 230°/ 446°F.

Suitable for: All hair types

Pros of Mythic oil : 

  • Nourishing
  • Added heat protection of up to 230°c
  • Fast drying and ideal for detangling
  • Controls the look of frizz
  • Lightweight hair oil serum
  • Pleasant fragrance

Cons of Mythic oil

  • I don’t have much of cons, except the price point 😛

How to use Mythic oil:

There are multiple ways you can use Mythic oil on your hair:

Method 1: How to apply Mythic oil after hair wash? Towel dry your hair and see that your hair is 80 to 90 percent dry. Next, take 1 to 2 pumps of Mythic oil in the palms of your hands, rub them together for a few seconds. This will make the hair oil warm and spread evenly on the hair strands. Bend your hair and apply the serum from the ends to the roots.

Method 2: How to apply Mythic oil on damp hair? Apply evenly to towel-dried mid-lengths and ends before blow-drying. I suggest this method only if you are planning to blow dry your hair or style with hot hair styling tools. I find using this oil in damp hair weighs down my hair when I don’t blow dry right after. I use this method only when I am in a rush to step out.

Method 3: How to apply Mythic oil on dry hair? You can use it as how you have been using your hair serums. Apply to dry hair to tame frizzy, flyaway and smooth hair whenever you find your hair dry.

Quantity: 100 ml

Price:  1100 rs

My experience with the product:

I bought this serum when I was dealing with really dry & frizzy hair, to such an extent that someone even said that the ends of my hair looked like a broom! Perhaps, that was one of the reasons I bought Mythic oil for my hair without any second thoughts. Mythic oil hair serum is loved by many hair professionals, and I had read & heard a lot of good stuff about the product. Yes, the price point is slightly higher than a regular hair serum, but I decided to give it a try.

Mythic oil review

When should you apply Mythic Oil?

Even though it says ‘Mythic oil’, it is a nourishing oil mostly used as a hair serum. Just a pump is enough for medium-length hair. A bottle can last up to 6-8 months depending on how often you wash or style your hair. Acts as a heat protectant and prevents your hair from larger damage. In my case, I am not much obsessed with hot tools, but there’s not a single day I can skip hair serums. Mythic hair oil did help in making my hair less frizzy, and manageable, but not much with split ends and dry ends, since that portion of my hair was literally DEAD. However, at the beginning of this year, I decided to go short to get rid of the split ends. Post which, I could see the product work wonderfully.

Is Loreal Mythic Oil good?

To be honest, it’s a nice product and the price point is something you’ll not mind after using the product. Mythic oil by Loreal is a good option if you are looking for a nourishing hair oil that can be used as a serum, heat protectant, and oil. It’s such a versatile product.
