A Makeup Remover Stick?πŸ’•

I go through phases where I pay carefully attention to my skin and how I remove makeup as I do the whole works; micellar water, toner etc. Then, other times, I'm really lazy and just use a wipe. In general, there's no in-between. I didn't intend on buying a makeup remover stick, but when I was buying items from MUA in Superdrug, they had a deal and the stick was a "free gift". So, here we are. Let me tell you all about it.

MUA Pro Base Makeup Remover Stick || £5 - So the idea behind this stick is that it helps dissolve your makeup, making the removal process quicker and easier. I will be brutally honest and admit that it is quite messy. Perhaps I just haven't found a solution to use it properly yet. All I do is scroll the stick up and in circular motions, wipe across my face, dampen my hands and work the remover into my skin. However, when I wash it off using a wet face cloth/flannel, it does actually remove all traces of makeup really well, including foundation and mascara. Yes, it removes eye makeup so no need to worry about it irritating your eyes.

One thing I do hate about this product is the way it leaves my skin feeling after using a cloth to remove - it feels extremely greasy, and almost waxy in a sense. Therefore, I find I need to use a face wash of some sort to remove the excess greasiness, but this also throughly cleanses my skin too. However, after washing my face properly, it does leave my skin glowing, radiant, and feeling clean and soft. It is more time consuming than using other makeup removers, such as micellar water. If I'm wearing a full face of makeup - which would include foundation, contouring etc - sometimes I carry out the routine twice, just to ensure that I've properly removed everything. But, I find I often end up with foundation and other makeup all over the stick, which is a bit disgusting as it builds up rapidly. This means that I'm essentially spreading bacteria across my face, so maybe I need to find an alternative way to use it. Apart from that, it does remove the makeup quite well, and for the price, I can't complain.

All in all, it's not a bad product. It does have a few cons, but I can deal with them as it does serve it's purpose and works well. As I said, I can't complain too much as it is only £5. It'd be ideal for perhaps travelling as it's small therefore wouldn't take up much room in a case/bag.  If you're looking to try a new makeup remover, give this a shot! You'll be surprised.
