I used to be the girl that NEVER left the house without full hair and makeup. Even when my kids were little I had this self-imposed rule. Not even a trip to the grocery store could take place if I wasn’t “ready.” I spent an hour doing my hair and 30-minutes completing my makeup every morning.
Then I turned 40 and I decided I’d never let NOT being made-up stop me from doing things. So now I’m as likely as not to be without makeup, but I’m also going to accept your last minute inviation to do something fun and not worry about what others think of my make-up free face. That said, I do like make-up and I certainly think well done makeup highlights a woman’s best features.
ybf Dual Action Makeup Remover Review
I’ve switched to mostly organic makeup and a fruit-based mascara so my makeup removal is pretty simple – just organic soap and water – but on some occasions I need a little bit more. I recently received a bottle of ybf Dual Action Makeup Remover to try. ybf stands for Your Best Friend. The brand was developed by Stacey Schieffelin, a Ford model and makeup guru, who became a successful entrepreneur. Her goal is to empower women to live the life they dream and to help them achieve the goal of being as beautiful inside as out.
The first thing I noticed about ybf Dual Action Makeup Remover is its unique look. The ingredients inside the bottle are separated and when shaken, it creates the most incredibly cool, sparkly, and bubbly mix – it’s almost intoxicating shaking it. It has a very light fragrance and when applied with a cotton ball it gently removes my eye liner and eye makeup and leaves behind a slightly slick, soft, and pleasant residue.
The ybf Dual Action Makeup Remover’s ingredients include water, aloe, and fennel and cucumber extract to soothe and calm your eye area. It works gently to remove mascara (even waterproof mascara) and can be used on your eyes, lips, and sin. It’s paraben-free (yea!)[alert-note]ybf dual action makeup remover ingredients – Water(Aqua), Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Isohexadecane, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Benzyl A lcohol, Beta Glucan, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Linoleic Acid, Lecithin, Phytosteryl Canola Glycerides,Oleic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid,Tocopherol, Triolein, Sodium Chloride,Disodium EDTA, Sodium Dehydroacetate,Red 40(CI 16035), Blue 1(CI 42090).
