In addition to the lovely makeup line, Make also offers a basic no-nonsense selection of skincare products. I've been testing the Shine Free Moisturizer and Dual-Face Makeup Remover for the last couple of months, mostly with good results.
The moisturizer comes as a very attractive lotion suspended in a gel base-- the pump mixes them together. It's a light moisturizer that absorbs right away and has a weightless feel. The formula contains various floral and fruit extracts, but it's also scented, so take it into consideration if you're sensitive. I'd venture a guess and say that this is a nice moisturizer for non-sensitive skin that doesn't require heavy duty hydration, as well as for use under primer and makeup on very humid days. I had to add extra support some days, so it's not an ideal product for me, but I did like the smooth finish it gives skin.
A dual phase eye makeup remover is an essential for me. I take off my eye makeup before cleansing, so I can avoid too much mascara residue on my face in the process. Make's liquid takes care of every last bit of long-wearing and waterproof products: gel eyeliners, mascara-- you name it. The makeup melts away immediately and there's no need for rubbing and stretching the skin. Once you wipe the remover away (I use Shiseido and DHC cotton squares) there's nothing left on the lids or below them.
Make Shine Free Moisturizer ($48, 1oz) & Dual-Face Eye Makeup Remover ($22, 4oz) are available at select Barneys locations, barneys.com, and directly from the company's website, weseebeauty.com, where 33.3% of each purchase will directly benefit the WE SEE BEAUTY Foundation, a non-profit organization that funds women-led co-ops in the US.
