The New Wave of Makeup Removers You Need In Your Beauty Routine
By now we’ve all used a makeup remover wipe, an eye makeup remover liquid, and a micellar water to cleanse our skin of our daily glam. But how many of us have used a makeup dissolving spray? Urban Decay just launched a new wave of makeup removers that are bound to get any beauty junkie excited to take off their makeup at the end of the day. From a cleansing sticks to dissolving sprays we’re sharing more about these innovative new Meltdown Makeup Removers below!
Why You Need to Remove Your Makeup
Before we get into the new Meltdown Makeup Removers from Urban Decay, let’s quickly refresh on how important it is to actually remove your makeup at the end of the day. While we can thank foundation for helping to temporarily even the appearance of our skin tone, concealer for helping us hide pesky blemishes and dark circles under our eyes, and blush and bronzer for letting us fake a healthy-looking glow, when we leave these cosmetics on our skin overnight—especially night after night—they can wreak havoc on our skin.
By not removing our makeup each night we’re all but asking for clogged pores and we all know what comes after clogged pores! Removing your makeup each night—even those nights when you’re feeling too tired to bother—is a necessary first step in a solid nighttime skin care routine. Not only are you giving your skin a breather, you’re also creating a clean canvas for the rest of your skin care routine—I mean, who wants to put a layer of moisturizer or serum over caked on day-old makeup? No one.
Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover
This oldie—but goodie—was the original Urban Decay makeup remover and was already innovative in its own right. The no-rinse formula was (and still is!) great to help you remove long-lasting makeup when you don’t have access to a sink. You simply apply to areas where you need to remove your makeup—that’s anywhere you have makeup on for those taking notes!—and wipe it away with a tissue. The creamy gel formula features a light scent and doesn’t need to be washed away after use. What’s more, Meltdown is small enough (2.5 ounces to be exact) to be stored in your carry-on luggage, making it ideal for makeup removal on the go.
While we already had a love affair with the original Meltdown Makeup Remover the new additions to the collection are definitely something more to write home about. Allow us to explain…
Meltdown Makeup Remover Dissolving Spray
When we saw there was a dissolving spray makeup remover available we naturally did a double take, because…how cool?! The powerful-yet-gentle Dissolving Spray is an oil-free spray formulated with vitamin E. It’s an incredibly innovative way to help you easily take off hard-to-remove waterproof makeup without leaving a greasy-looking residue. The lightweight mist works on contact to help dissolve Urban Decay’s long-lasting makeup products so you can easily wipe them away without rubbing or tugging on your skin. Simply spray the Dissolving Spray onto a clean cotton ball and gently wipe away makeup. You can also use the spray on smaller areas to help you with a quick lipstick or eyeshadow change!
Meltdown Makeup Remover Cleansing Oil Stick
Cleansing sticks are currently all the rage thanks to their ease of use and convenient design and this Cleansing Oil Stick from Urban Decay is no exception. The oil-to-microfoam formula is hydrating and is enhanced with turmeric root extract—another very buzzworthy trend in skin care. Like the other products in the Meltdown collection, the Cleansing Oil Stick helps to remove long-lasting cosmetics easily without leaving a greasy residue. The balm transforms to an oil on contact with the skin and them to a microfoam to help to gently dissolve makeup. Apply it directly to the skin and massage gently until the product melts into is liquid form. Next, use a little water to massage the formula into a lather and then rinse away.
Meltdown Makeup Remover Lip Oil Stick
I think we can all agree that there’s little as hard to remove as a bold ruby red lipstick. Thankfully, with this Lip Oil Stick, removing stubborn lip colors just got much easier! The stick is formulated with vitamin E and conditioning ceramides to help hydrate your pout as it helps to remove makeup. Originally developed to tackle the long-wearing (and hard-to-take-off) Vice Liquid Lipsticks, the Lip Oil Stick glides on and helps to breakdown the lipstick to help you easily wipe it away with a tissue or cotton ball. Note: You may have to repeat the process once in order to thoroughly remove your lip color.
