What Do You Use To Remove Makeup? I've Heard Jojoba Oil Is Good?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm about to start the regimen - have ordered the kit and am expecting it soon! I was wondering what you girls use to remove makeup, the regimen says just the cleanser but in the past i've just used face wash and it hasn't got all my makeup off so I don't expect it too this time, especially if it's only on my face for ten seconds!

I normally just use face wipes to get it all off but I want to try to follow the regimen as exactly as possible to really clear my skin up and I've heard that applying jojoba oil will just remove all my makeup. What do you think of this being my first step, then following on with cleanse, bp, moisturise?

I like jojoba oil (but it's pricy), extra virgin olive oil, or Neutrogena Oil-Free makeup remover wipes (sometimes on sale or just plain cheap at Target). :P I know, makeup is a real pain in the neck to get off. :) Hope it works for youu.

I use jojoba oil, message it into my skin for a minute or so, then wash off with the cleanser,however I'm still not able to get all the makeup off, so i'll use some neutregena wipes to brush over my face to make sure I take off EVERYTHING, any makeup left over can break you out. I usually take my makeup off as soon as i'm home and don't have any further plans, usually in the afternoon, then at night I also use the cleanser again, so you can say I wash my face 3x a day on the days when I use makeup, but it's only about 2-3 days a week, I just hate having makeup on when I don't need it, if you do buy the wipes, make sure they're as plain as can be, no exfoliating, no fragrance, just solely makeup remover wipes, hope that helps!

Hi Robin, I would recommend that you try to follow the regimen as accurately as possible in the first few months, with no changes. If you are using Dan's products you will probably find that his cleanser removes foundation quite well. If you are using heavy duty foundation (like Doublewear for example) then you will probably be best to use a bit of jojoba oil to 'loosen' it before cleansing.

Using makeup wipes may cause too much irritation in the early weeks while your skin is adjusting to BP and you are trying to be as gentle as possible. You may even bite the bullet like I did and try not to wear foundation at all (scary but achievable) while you are trying to get clear. Good luck!

A number of oils will do the job, just be careful which you use. Coconut oil is highly comedogenic. Extra virgin olive oil is a bit iffy, it is comedogenic in some people.

Jojoba oil is a safe bet.

I use non scented baby wipes that are for sensitive skin. I just buy the target brand. They even get all my eye makeup off. Never had any problems with them even when going over inflamed acne. Just do it gently.

Jojoba oil will work as well, but it's kinda expensive to use large amounts. You only get one face though and you should go with the popular vote :)

I just use the face wash. Unless you are wearing long-wearing foundation it should work well. Here's more advice from Dan. http://www.danielkern.com/product-p/cleanser-8.htm#makeup

I just use cleanser and it removes my makeup just fine. Never had a problem with it not removing my makeup.
