5 Effective Cleansing Oils To Remove Stubborn & Heavy Festive Makeup Without Damaging Skin

Though a glamorous makeup look helps one stand out and even steal the show, it’s a daunting task to remove it, as it entails using high-coverage and waterproof products. Our regular makeup removers aren’t very effective to get rid of the stubborn makeup, resulting in harsh rubbing and tugging at the skin. This causes irritation and even damages our skin layers.

Thus, here’s a solution — switch to cleansing oils that are designed to remove heavy makeup effortlessly. Take a look at a few of them.
