Be honest: do you sometimes go to bed without removing your make-up or at least think about it? If you feel caught now, read on. In this article, we will tell you how you can use our FIVE make-up remover to turn the annoying make-up removal routine into a wellness experience for you and your skin. Here we go!
Make-up removal - does it really have to be?
We don't want to beat around the bush: Yes, it really MUST be . Why? Because this is what happens when we don't:
Clogging pores : pimples and blackheads scream "Woo-hoo!"
Bacteria multiply : the risk of irritation and allergic reactions increases
The skin dries out : the result is a feeling of tightness and itching
Those are actually reasons enough to get rid of make-up regularly and thoroughly, one would think. Why does it still cost us so much effort? Let's imagine the typical scenario : You come home dead tired after a long day or a night of dancing and all you really want is one thing: to snuggle straight into bed. If it weren't for the annoying make-up, the waterproof mascara and the remains of the red lipstick. But it doesn't help at all. If you don't want to wake up the next morning with "panda eyes" on a totally smeared pillow, all you can do is grab the make-up remover. Said and done!
However, the result is sobering, because despite a lot of rubbing and scrubbing, the waterproof mascara can only be partially removed. What remains is red, wrinkled skin around the eye area and a few lashes less each time. The whole face feels dry and tense. Great. It does NOT HAVE to be .
FIVE make-up remover: facial cleansing with a wellness factor
The secret of our make-up remover compared to conventional cleansing oils lies on the one hand in its double effect: It cleans and cares in one . The cold-pressed, vegetable oils not only effortlessly and gently remove even stubborn make-up residues. At the same time, they support your skin in regenerating to maintain a healthy skin balance.
That's what's in the FIVE make-up remover: 5 high-quality oils
Almond oil (organic): against moisture loss and roughness
Jojoba oil (organic): absorbs well and protects against moisture loss
Apricot kernel oil (organic): has a skin-smoothing effect
Vitamin E : acts as a radical scavenger
Essential neroli oil (organic): good skin tolerance and fresh, delicately sweet, tart fragrance
This is NOT in FIVE make-up remover: emulsifiers
Emulsifiers are added to many cosmetics to make it easier for the fats they contain to combine with water, as these two substances are normally immiscible. The resulting emulsion feels good and absorbs quickly. The disadvantage: the skin dries out over time because the emulsifiers continue to work diligently even after it has been absorbed. Due to a lack of alternatives, they bind the skin's own fats, which are then simply rinsed off when they come into contact with water (when showering or washing hands).
In conventional make-up removers, emulsifiers ensure that the oils contained in the product foam up well when they come into contact with water and can be easily washed off. The FIVE make-up remover works differently because we deliberately avoid using emulsifiers. So here are a few make-up removal instructions for optimal use:
Take off your makeup! This is how you use our make-up remover correctly
Easy cleaning: wipe and away
Put a few drops of the cleansing oil on the palms of your hands and spread gently on your face, eyelids and eyelashes . Then moisten a reusable make-up remover pad with hot water and first clean the eyelashes with your eyes closed by gently stroking from top to bottom so that no oil gets into the eye. Then remove the remaining facial skin with circular movements.
«Never would have thought of first massaging the oily make-up remover directly onto the dry face with your hands and then removing it with a damp make-up remover pad. It's super comfortable, uses a lot less water than the washing lotions I used to use, is greasy, you don't have to rub it as much... great!»
Intensive cleaning: The Oil Cleansing Method
The Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) works on the oil-removes-oil principle and effortlessly removes make-up, sunscreen, city dirt and sebum. Massage plenty of cleansing oil into the skin (approx. 5 to 7 pumps) and then place a small towel soaked in hot water on your face. Allow to cool while the pores open, then remove any leftover makeup and dirt. Feel free to repeat if necessary. This method is not only suitable for removing make-up, but also excellent for deep cleansing of the skin. If you have problems with clogged pores and blackheads, these will gradually dissolve with regular use and your complexion will visibly improve.
«The FIVE make-up remover is actually a game changer! Since I have been cleansing my skin with the OCM, it is smoother, softer, less flaky and no longer tight. It took my skin a few weeks to get used to the new method, but now it doesn't want anything else."
🤩 By the way: Thanks to the high-quality and caring ingredients, you don't have to completely wash off the residue of the cleansing oil after removing make-up, you can simply let it soak into the skin.
7 genius ways to use our makeup remover
As you may have already noticed, our FIVE make-up remover is quite an all-rounder and by no means only suitable for removing make-up. That's why we have summarized the various possible applications and advantages for you again, seven in one go:
1. Effortless makeup removal
Whether light foundation, eyeshadow, rouge, lipstick or strong carnival make-up: the make-up remover cleans even heavily applied make-up effortlessly and gently , without leaving any residue. Urban dirt and excess sebum that builds up over the course of the day can also be washed off very easily.
2. Removal of waterproof mascaras
Torn eyelashes and red rubbed eyes are a thing of the past. Our cleansing oil easily removes most waterproof mascaras because that's what the oil is made for. But with some waterproof mascaras, not even that helps. So do the test at home: If your mascara can be removed with a few drops of olive oil, rapeseed oil or sunflower oil, the FIVE make-up remover is suitable for you.
3. Wash off stubborn sunscreen
You don't use make-up and have therefore not needed make-up remover before? Then it will be of use to you at the latest in the warm season, because sunscreen is an absolute MUST. And just like make-up, this should be washed off thoroughly in the evening, because water alone cannot get at the strongly adhering UV filters - a clear case for our cleansing oil.
4. Suitable for deep cleaning
If you use the make-up remover together with the Oil Cleansing Method , you not only clean your face and eyes from superficial dirt and make-up. The warm water vapor opens the skin pores and the deep cleansing effect sets in - for a radiant glow.
5. Nourishing face or body oil
In contrast to conventional cleansing oils, our make-up remover contains neither emulsifiers nor surfactants. Therefore, you can safely use it as a nourishing oil for your body and face. Simply massage gently into the moistened skin, let it soak in and the wellness holiday for the skin with high-quality, essential organic plant oils can begin. The 2-in-1 effect is particularly beneficial when travelling.
6. «Pimp up» your face cream
Does your skin feel tight or dry and you have the feeling "Something is missing"? Then your care may be a little too light for the current needs of your skin. To make it richer , just add a drop or two of FIVE Make-up Remover if needed et voilà!
7. Avoiding waste
Disposable products were yesterday! You don't need cotton swabs or disposable cotton pads to use the make-up remover optimally. Instead, just use a small, washable towel or washcloth. We have put together everything you need for a successful start with our cleansing oil in the Oil Cleansing Method starter set .
And now have fun removing your make-up!
