One of the wisest decisions I ever made in caring for my skin was choosing to remove all makeup before going to bed. In my teens, and even through college, I treated cleansing as a quick, mindless pre-bedtime activity. And when I’d awake each morning, there’d be the inevitable raccoon eyes and dull skin, exposing the harsh truth that I had not fully cleansed my face. I wasn’t giving my skin the love it deserved. Mindful skin care demands proper cleansing.
The S.W. Basics Makeup Remover uses organic plant-based oils to dissolve makeup with little effort and zero irritation. Even mascara and liquid liner don’t stand a chance.
Everything S.W. Basics makes has five ingredients or less. This Makeup Remover only has three (perfect) ingredients.
The S.W. Basics Makeup Remover is $14 for a 2oz bottle. Purchase it here.
If you wear makeup, your skin needs a makeup remover. Some people call it oil cleansing or double cleansing or simply makeup removal, but no matter what you call it, oil has the ability to dissolve the different types of makeup on your face, and fast.
Ingredients: organic sweet almond oil, organic extra-virgin olive oil, organic jojoba oil.

These three natural ingredients allow makeup removal to be free of irritation, and the brevity of the ingredient list means that those of us with allergies or reactive skin don’t need to worry about essential oils or problematic preservative agents. Sometimes simple really is better.
Adina Grigore, the founder of S.W. Basics, is the author of the 2015 book Skin Cleanse. As you’ll see in the adorable video below, she wants those of us with over-treated/chaotic skin to know that our skin is awesome, it’s just misunderstood. If you’re a product junkie, and your skin is rebelling, then its time to take a new approach to skincare. S.W. Basics is spreading the gospel of skincare sanity.
This oil blend also doubles as a light moisturizer.
