Glossier's New Makeup Remover Is the Best I've Ever Tried

I'm going to start this feature by being totally transparent: Anything Glossier releases, I will purchase. Call it hype, call it good marketing, call it what you like. I call it excellent products I know I can rely on for simple skincare at affordable prices (and also fantastic marketing—Emily Weiss, we're looking at you). Whenever a new Glossier product lands on my desk, I get a rush of excitement, eager to run home and plaster whatever it may be all over my skin and feel like an angelic dewy goddess post-skincare usage, and its latest release was no exception. Introducing the brand-new Milky Oil Waterproof Makeup Remover. Keep reading to hear my honest review.

You may remember Glossier's original cleanser, Milky Jelly. Well, this new version is kind of like same but different. A combination of micellar water and weightless oil make this product a one-swipe wonder when taking off even the most stubborn of waterproof mascaras. Simply shake, pour some on a cotton pad and hold it over your eyes and makeup is instantly gone. I kid you not. I used this for the first time and gasped at how quickly it removed my makeup. My main issue with oil-based makeup removers is that you're left with a sticky residue, but Milky Oil left my skin feeling silky smooth, fresh and totally clean. 

Like Milky Jelly Cleanser, Milky Oil contains comfrey root extract and pro-vitamin B5 to help condition and soothe skin, it also contains glycerin to help combat dryness. I'm normally a micellar water girl through and through, as I love how clean they leave my face post-use, but I often find I have to use multiple cotton pads in the process. This didn't happen with Milky Oil, I used a total of two cotton pads to remove my entire face of makeup and then went in with a second cleanse with Oskia's Renaissance Cleansing Gel (£33) because I was in the middle of fashion week and this girl needed some R&R time.
