How To Remove Your Makeup With Only Water


I interrupt our usual DIY & home decor posts for a beauty post today. I’m a DIY girl who loves to work on projects, re-finish furniture, & decorate, but I also like to get ready everyday & be presentable when I go to my shop. So that means most days I’m putting makeup on my face. Ok, before you leave from the blog or ask me why the heck I’m blogging about this let me explain! A few years back I blogged [HERE] about how I cleared my skin of bad cystic acne. I had terrible skin that was very painful mentally and physically. It was a long journey, but I found the a more natural skin regimen is what my body needed. Since that post a few years ago I have changed up my routine quite a bit & I really need to share that with you guys soon, but I wanted to share a product today that has changed my life completely & has allowed me to wash my face without any harsh chemicals or any additional oils or cleansers.. just water. It’s called the makeup eraser & honestly I never thought I would be blogging my used face wash cloth, but it’s kind of a miracle product & after a year of using it… it’s time to introduce you to the best face wash cloth out there, The Makeup Eraser

Ok, so how did I find this wonderful little product? First of all.. you have to know I am a complete sucker for descriptions of beauty products at Sephora & Ulta… I love reading product claims & testing out the product to see if it works. I’m often disappointed or my skin is when the product causes it to breakout.. hashtag sensitive skin problems, but when I spotted this product called The Makeup Eraser [HERE] that claimed “A reusable, ultrasoft makeup remover cloth that erases makeup with only warm water.” ok, you know I had to try that! Before this new wash cloth I was washing my makeup off by using coconut oil and a hot wash cloth. It was going ok, but it was quite messy, time consuming, & not convenient when you travel. I picked up this wash cloth for twenty dollars which was a little pricey for me at first because I thought for sure it wouldn’t work, but boy was I wrong.

The first night I wanted to try it so I followed the directions on the package & washed my makeup off with the washcloth & warm water… that’s it. Foundation, mascara, eyeliner, bronzer… all gone with a few swipes. All of my makeup was on the wash cloth & I honestly couldn’t believe it was that easy.. what kind of magic was this thing? And on top of that my skin felt amazingly fresh and clean. No lie. I was shocked, but knowing my skin I thought for sure after a week or two it would break out or not clean as well as I thought.. so I kept testing it for a few more weeks. & just like that my life was easier & my skin was even happier than when I was using coconut oil. It’s never been so clear! Here is my skin routine with the washcloth now: Soak wash cloth in warm water, wipe my entire face, rinse the wash cloth in warm water again, go over my face once again just to double check that everything was removed, wash my face with my favorite charcoal bar soap, pat dry, apply night time cream [Favorite one of the moment here]. Done. That’s it. Of course some nights I will exfoliate & use face masks, but I will go over all of that in my updated skincare routine later.

Here are more of the claims of the washcloth listed on the website: “Remove smear-proof, waterproof makeup and mascara with The Original MakeUp Eraser®. Free of chemicals, this makeup remover gets rid of all types of makeup, including stage, sports, and theatrical makeup. Each cloth will last a thousand washes, and you only need to add warm water and then remove makeup. This ultra-soft, woven polyester-blend cloth gets rid of tough makeup without leaving behind a residue—just a fresh, healthy feeling.” I would never come on here & talk about my face wash cloth if I didn’t love it.. & I have to say it’s love. It’s so convenient, great for travel, easy to use, & my super sensitive skin loves it. Ok.. so that concludes this post about a wash cloth, but really I hope it helps some of you. I can’t tell you how many emails and comments I get daily about how my skincare routine has helped others get rid of their troubled skin & how it’s changed lives so there was NO WAY I could keep this little secret to myself because I know someone out there needs to throw away those chemical filled makeup wipes & use this more natural makeup remover. I hope this helps some of you out there. Have you tried this makeup remover wash cloth before? What do you think?
