The silly season is the best time to push the envelope when it comes to your makeup lewk, is it not? Perhaps you’ve finally said “To heck with it” and given the graphic eye trend a whirl, or decided you want to become the type of woman who is never not seen wearing a red lip. Maybe now is your one big chance to take every beauty look from Sex And The City out for a night on the town, or really cosy up to your new favourite highlighter. But at what cost, people? Won’t someone think of the children your skin?

Give your loved ones the gift of a clean canvas this year with Nars’ Aqua-Infused Makeup Removing Water. Given our proclivity for micellar technology, it was a no-brainer that we were going to fall in love with this bad boy, too. Infused with water, the makeup remover ever so gently lifts makeup from the skin with a (nice, different) unusual, sensorial gel texture. You don’t need to scrub your skin to within an inch of its life, and no rinsing is required around these parts. The makeup remover is like a magnet for all the dirt that accumulates on your face throughout the day (gross, but true), and says “laters” to makeup, oil, and grime for the freshest cleanse of your life.

Blending kiwi and coconut water, the makeup remover is fresh to death and adds unparalleled levels of hydration and glow. If you are partial to a strong, sparkly party makeup look, this is the perfect present to gift yourself. If you’re a bit more selfless and are into buying gifts for people that they will actually use, then the hunt is over, my friends. You’ve found it. It’s Nars’ Aqua-Infused Makeup Removing Water, and you can buy it here.
