Q: “I can’t live without a waterproof mascara because of the heat in KL but that also means that I have a really hard time removing it at the end of the day. Any recommendations for a quick and painless formula?” – Faith Lim, Logistics Executive

A: To ensure your mascara doesn’t smudge all over your lower lash lines, a waterproof pick is definitely the way to go. I would recommend an oil cleanser for a quick and clean removal but it can be tricky when it gets to the eye area. If you’re not careful, the oil cleanser can sting when it comes in contact with your eyeball (trust me, I’ve done that way too many times!). This is my new favourite for removing mascara. It comes with a brush applicator to accurately remove it lash by las with its oil-in-gel formula that’s safe for the eyes and doesn’t cause eye irritations even if it touches your pupil.
