Do you know what’s the most tiring task to do after a busy day @ work and back home…It’s undoubtedly the makeup removal. While there are endless makeup remover products in the market. Only a handful suits the sensitive skin. I am a person who wear makeup almost everyday. Removing eye makeup is the most difficult part according to me..

After a busy day and finishing my daily chores. It find it really difficult to soak cotton pads in those makeup removers including micellar waters. I need atleast 6 cotton pads soaked in makeup remover for getting rid of that yucky makeup.. and more q tips dipped in micellar water to get rid of that clumps of mascara that my cotton pad failed to catch..

Well, if this sound like you… Don’t worry, Here- In this post I am going to talk about a product that can be all time favorite. I tried and tested it for different kinds of makeup including liquid, cream & cake makeup, waterproof mascara , long lasting liquid lip colors & other matte lipsticks etc..

Put your hands together for this wonderful product – trilogy Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm. not only this serves as a best makeup remover balm- It also is an excellent product for facial massage after a stressful day at work.

Melt away make-up for clean, supple, hydrated skin with mango butter, rosehip oil, coconut oil.

My experience using trilogy Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm

Using oil is the most effective and gentle way to remove all the makeup without stripping your face’s natural oils.
Now, most of the time, I am not patient enough to mix and match different oils and use it for makeup removal. There comes this fabulous product as a skin savior.





How I use it – 
I use a spatula to scoop some of the cleansing balm and apply to my skin. I give a nice massage to gently melt the balm, in circular motions I massage it on areas like eyes, eye lashes, brows, and the rest of my face. basically, applying balm all over my facial area.

1)Initially – You feel a lovely natural fragrance blend of ylang ylang and other essential oils, very pleasant smell upon application. When I initially applied I felt I am applying a balm and making my face greasy – I even thought – OMG – Am I going to complicate this makeup removal process…

2)Here comes the magic part – After I rinsed the organic cloth in warm water, wring and gently wipe the entire face , again wring and wipe until I didn’t see any makeup residue on the cloth.

3)I used a  normal facial cleanser (trilogy balancing gel cleanser) to give my face a final deep clean and wipe with the same cloth.  I see my face very very clean without any trace of makeup including mascara. All makeup was gone in a glance and you can see your fresh skin..About 5-6 minutes – max – I finish my makeup removal.  I finished off by spraying the trilogy hydrating mist toner on my face and applied my trilogy rosapene night creamIMG_4397

Overall, the most awesome things about this Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm is that

  • Removes even the stubborn eye makeup, liquid/cream concealer (Dermablend, kryolan, MAC – tried and tested)
  • Smells awesome & feels really great on skin ; Massaging with this balm itself feels like you are in some SPA
  • Leaves no oil residue post wash.
  • Suits my sensitive skin perfectly. no irritation; no preservatives. shelf life is 6 months
  • Comes with a organic cotton cloth.
  • Saves a lot of time.
  • I also use it for Lymphatic Facial Drainage Massage – Awesome that way- it just relaxes you and if you are someone with dark circles like me- This facial massage helps you keep it in control. The Lymphatic Facial Drainage Massage targeting areas like under eyes and eye brows etc really make a big difference on your face. Do try it and see the magic for yourself.
