I’m in Sydney as I type, as a guest of the always-amazing M.A.C Cosmetics at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia – hallelujah to that! One of the first things I did upon checking into my hotel – the rather delish Park Hyatt – was crack into a goodie bag of M.A.C skincare products straight after donning my robe.
I have to confess that I hadn’t tried a lot of the brand’s skincare options before now, despite being completely mad for their makeup. And boy, was I missing out when it came to one very fabulous cleanser!
That cleanser is M.A.C Cleanse Off Oil, which is an industry-strength oil-based makeup remover that's gentle on the skin. Botanically formulated with oils of olive fruit, evening primrose and jojoba seed, it’s also absolutely 100 per cent mineral oil free – which always gets the biggest of ticks in my book. It effortlessly massages onto the skin to loosen all makeup - including waterproof mascara – and emulsifies into a lotion-type liquid with water that rinses off easily, no tissues required - and no residue! Suitable for all skin types, it seriously cuts through even my hardest-to-remove products without batting an eye, like long-wearing lipsticks, waterproof mascaras, gel liners, stick foundations — you name it, it melts it clean away.
It’s great on the anti-ageing front too, abundant in Vitamin E and requiring next to know tugging or rubbing of the delicate eye area. If you haven’t given this baby a go already then I highly recommend that you do – I’m planning on giving it a workout all this week, and will report back!
