The Best Way To Remove Your Makeup + Giveaway

The Best Way To Remove Your Makeup + Giveaway

Some of you may be blessed with good skin that stays smooth and supple with very little effort while the rest of us need to go the extra mile to achieve even just an okay skin. But no matter what type of skin category you belong to, the golden rule is to always remove your makeup at the end of the day no matter how tired you are.

More often than not, it isn’t the makeup that is bad for your skin but not removing the makeup properly that causes all sorts of problems to your skin in the long run. Based on personal experience, facial wipes and makeup removers on cotton pads though a quick and easy fix, may sometimes be inefficient.

After years of removing our makeup on a daily basis, we finally found the best and most effective way! If you haven’t heard or tried this method, you ought to because removing makeup has never been easier with…cleansing oil. Here’s why:

1. It saves a lot of time with very little effort

Instead of having to wipe every part of your face until it’s rid of all the makeup, all you have to do is pump the cleansing oil onto your dry/wet palms a few times (3-4 pumps) and massage it onto your entire face in a circular motion including your eyes. It would be advisable to keep your eyes shut throughout the process. Wet your hands with water and repeat the action until the cleansing oil emulsifies. You can do this step just once or like me, 3 times if you have thick makeup on before washing it away completely with water.

2. It cleans thoroughly

The cleansing oil works wonders in terms of removing all makeup and dirt off your face. If you follow the cleansing method right, you will notice that there isn’t any makeup residue left on your face. One way to test it out, wipe your face with a clean light coloured towel. No stain equals to a clean face!

3. It works as a cleanser

Unless stated otherwise, most of the cleansing oils in the market today are a 2-in-1, which means they don’t only work as a makeup remover but a cleanser too! It doesn’t just effectively remove your makeup but also the dirt on your face. And this brings me back to point number 1; less steps means less time needed to clean your face. Having said that, people with oily skin may opt to follow up with a cleanser depending on your skin’s needs and condition. It may be too drying for those with dry to normal skin.

4. It works on oily skin too

Yes! Take it from us with oily and combination skin. We’ve discovered during a recent beauty workshop that like dissolves like. Therefore, cleansing oil helps lift off the dirt on your oily skin so it definitely works well in terms of removing makeup and dirt. In fact, it is more effective than the regular removers. And as mentioned above, you may follow up with a cleanser if need be.

When it comes to choosing the right cleansing oil, it’s all about the one that works best for your skin without any reactions and isn’t too stingy to the eyes because you would have to use it to remove your eye makeup too! A good natural scent is defintiely a plus point.

With that said, our good friends at Kiehl’s want you to experience using cleansing oil so we’re giving away 6 bottles of Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil to 6 lucky winners!

    I’d like to win the make up remover because all those that I’ve tried have made my skin oily or break out and I think this will be a good change!
    A cleansing tip is to just wash your face with water in the morning. It gives a bouncy and dewy effect!!

  • Cheryl Poh

    I wish I can win Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil simply because the first product that I bought from Kiehl’s is their Top 1 product which is the Candelula toner and I was so in love with it (still using it) ! I believe the quality of every Kiehl’s products so I can’t wait to try out this Botanical Cleansing Oil !!!

  • Jitz Lim

    I’m that guy that spends less than 5 minutes to clean his face but I’d like to win the Kiehl’s Cleansing Oil for my girlfriend because she would spend 20 minutes just to clean her face. I hope that by using the Kiehl’s Cleansing Oil would make the whole process easier and cleaner for her.
    No cleansing tip from me though.. XP

  • Su Hong Xian

    My girlfriend has been strongly recommend me Kiehl’s products as I have a sensitive skin with terrible breakouts all over my face. She then bought me the best product which is Calendula and it really helps alot. My face seems better now and I really hope that I can win this Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil for her.

    My cleansing tip is to use Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash and apply Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner everyday. I hope that with the use of Kiehl’s products, I will have a clean and clear skin.😁


    With the recommendation from my friend I have bought Calendula facial wash and toner which I have been wanting to try so badly. Since then I’m so in love with Kiehl’s products. Kiehl’s products are indeed suitable for sensitive skin like me and I wish that I can win this cleansing oil recommended by Megan. 😁 Pretty please?

  • Zee

    I would like to try Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil simply because i believe in investing a good quality skincare for my skin that is not only multi functional and also worth every penny and effort while using it. Talking about minimum effort, maximum results 🙂 Looking forward to explore this Kiehl’s product for a more nourished and healthier skin!

    My cleansing tip is always stick to the basics. Always cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin and never ever go to bed with your make up on no matter what

  • Joyie Ching

    Hi, this is interesting as I’ve tried cleansing oil of other brand before this. However perhaps it wasn’t quite suitable for my skin because my skin still feels dry and gets oily easily in the afternoon. I wish to try Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil in hopes that it’ll help ease my dry combination skin and achieve the cleansed and youthful skin that I believe all of us deserves.
    I wish to read more on how to take care of our hair especially dry and frizzy hair because a beautiful hair can really change the first impression of a person.

  • Amy

    In all honesty, I don’t really have a regular cleansing routine let alone a cleanser. Having heard much about Kiehl’s products and my new year’s goal in loving and caring for myself more, I feel that committing to a trusted brand is the most important. With your review and clearly many others, I’d be blessed to be able to win the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil to help kick start my new cleansing and make up removal routine as well as keeping to my goal of caring for my skin more this year. My only cleansing tip is to always wash with cold water.

    I’d love to see more videos and maybe some sharing on your personal favourite and how you’d use products or style clothes. Also some tips on your favourite exercise routines maybe?

    I am a regular user of two different types of Kiehl’s Eye Cream. One is the Midnight Recovery Cream which I apply at night to heal the gentle under eye skin while I sleep. The other is the Eye Alert Cream for use in the morning to reduce under eye puffiness and dark circles.

    My basic skin care routine consists of toning, cleansing and moisturising. This daily routine should be carried out in the morning and before bedtime at night. I am looking forward to use Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil because it works effortlessly in removing makeup and cleanses the skin effectively too.

  • Wei Ziee

    I just ended my skin medication regime last month. I had terrible break out often so i had to take medicine. I don’t want to rely on medication all the time for my skin plus I am afraid of the side effect since I have to consume the pills. I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO TRY OUT KIELHL’S PRUDUCTS! I heard that Kielh’s is the holy grail for troubled skin people like me. I am still a full time student so I kinda couldn’t afford one. So, hopefully I could win this and try out Kiehl’s product for the first time! *EXCITED*

    For an oily skin person like me, I usually will not wash my face with cleanser in the morning after I wake up. I will rinse my face with plain water and that’s it. Even though my skin is oily, too much of cleansing with product I scared it will strip off my natural sebum on my face. Contradict huh. lol. After that, I will use cleanser to wash my face when I take a shower and toner afterwards. That’s it. My face appears shiny if i put too much products on my face. *Shine bright like a diamond*

    I would love to see more about makeup and styling tips from MegMesh. We have been exposed to too many of Korean ways of makeup, so I hope to see more from the Europe styling and makeup style. XOXO
