I’m happy to be introducing you to a fabulous product that I have been using for the last 2 months: Osmosis Melt Away Gelee. You’ve long heard about double cleansing but you’ve never seen a product quite like this.
Mostly I hear about oils for makeup removal prior to washing but Melt Away Gelee is a paraben free gel that is very soothing. I like to use my fingers to apply this to my face but others like using a cotton pad with it.
Some days I get super lazy and want the easiest way to remove my makeup and this is when I’m really thrilled I have this cleansing product. TMI but I sit on the toilet seat (closed) and pick up a small amount of this clear gel and rub my entire face with it. I massage it in to pick up all the vestiges of makeup. When I’m done I’ll use Micellar Water (either a cleansing sheet or on a cotton square) and remove the gel. My face is not only ultra cleansed but it’s softer than ever.
Melt Away Gelee doesn’t clog my pores and there’s nothing harsh about it. It just melts my foundation etc. away without any scrubbing.
Another way I use this is prior to cleansing with my sonic cleansing machine (Sonulase). I remove my facial makeup with the gelee, add cleanser to the Sonulase, and wash while exfoliating and treating my skin. It’s not an extra step at all.
This is said to remove waterproof makeup but I find it doesn’t remove my mascara well. To conquer that I take a q-tip and put some on the end and gently rub. It’s a little messy though since the black ends up on my face but it’s easily washed away.
I have nothing but praise for this gentle makeup remover. The ingredients are moisturizing (avocado oil, jojoba oil and aloe vera) and soothing. If you have any irritation on your face this would be an excellent choice too.
