This very effective solid make-up remover overcomes all make-up, even waterproof and resistant. Launched by Huda Kattan, a personality ranked among the 25 most influential on the Internet by the magazine “TIME”, it is one of the last born of his brand WISHFUL.
Finding a truly effective makeup remover is a long and difficult quest. Sticky texture, formula that stings the eyes or that you have to apply several times before getting rid of waterproof makeup … It’s hard to find a product that combines effectiveness and softness. If some manufacture their homemade makeup remover with natural vegetable oils, it can be difficult to rinse off perfectly, even after using a foaming product. Fortunately, some makeup removers perfectly fulfill their mission. Clean Genie Balm WISHFUL, skincare brand launched by Huda Kattan at the start of the year, is one of them.
Its blue-green formula, due to the malachite stone it contains, contains green tea extract with antioxidant and detoxifying properties and soothing and moisturizing cherry blossom. Just take a small amount and apply it to dry skin with your fingertips. The melting, very malleable texture is then massaged all over the face, with emphasis on the eyes. We wet the formula which turns into milk, very easy to rinse with water in a few seconds. And there, the magic operates. Waterproof mascara, foundation, highly resistant eyeliner, matte lipstick… Whatever makeup is applied, it is removed, without any trace remaining. However, the skin is neither dry nor irritated. On the contrary, Clean Genie leaves it supple and hydrated, without depositing a greasy film – combination skin types can however apply a foaming gel if they wish to perform a double cleanse. *
If the price of the balm may seem high for a makeup remover (35 €), its price is offset by its high efficiency, which allows very little product to be taken each time. WISHFUL’s Clean Genie balm is rated 5/5 by its users on the Sephora website, the only brand where it can be obtained. A success !
