I've been through no fewer than six different eye makeup removers over the past several months. My goal? To remove all traces of my mascara. Doesn't seem like an unreasonable request from an eye makeup remover, right? And yet, the product that could actually fulfill my request has been elusive. Frustratingly so. Every morning I wake up with smudges of mascara that I'd thought was long gone during the night before's face washing. Enter Epitome Skincare's Multi-Tasking Facial Cleanser.
This cleanser is packed full of essential oils that emulsify and dissolve all traces of makeup. Even mascara (hallelujah!). It's mild enough to use on the eyes; I like to put a small drop of the cleansing lotion on a Q-tip, then run it over the base of my lashes to remove every last bit of makeup. The ingredient list is terrific - really gentle and packed full of things that I can actually pronounce - mainly essential oils. I really cannot recommend this cleanser enough. You can learn more about the Nicole Mulder, the force behind Epitome Skincare, in a recent article by msp Fly magazine.
