Removing Your Makeup Like a Boss With The ZA Cosmetics Deep Cleansing Oil

Za Cosmetics Deep Cleansing Oil Estee Lauder Double Wear

Aloha class (just booked out honeymoon to Hawaii – I’m so excited!)

Today I want to tell you about the product I have been using most regularly to take off my makeup – in particular my stubborn Estee Lauder Double Wear!

It is the wonderful, the fantastic, the marvellous… ZA Cosmetics Deep Cleansing Oil.

Now I was sent this by ZA for free however I am not being paid to talk about this product, I haven’t been asked to talk about this product. I just genuinely love and use this product regularly and I want to tell you about it – because it’s a cheaper alternative to the Estee Lauder makeup remover, and it removes makeup really well and leaves my skin feeling fab.

So it’s sold in 100ml bottles, it’s around $15NZ and sold in Life Pharmacy and other similar stores in NZ – if you want to see where it’s sold near you or in your country then check the Facebook page or site for your country at the bottom of their website. It’s got a pump dispenser and one pump is around enough for my face, although I tend to use two pumps (one to remove makeup and one to cleanse).

Obviously it’s an oil-based cleanser (looking at the name). Originally I was thinking I wouldn’t be touching the thing with a barge pole as I have oily skin myself and I assumed it would make it worse and make me break out. However it ended up being quite the opposite (once I got the courage to try it!).

It’s marketed to remove stubborn makeup, pore impurities and clogged sebum (who knows what that it, but it sounds nasty). It is formulated with two types of natural plant oils (two!?) and vitamin E derivative which sounds pretty good, although it’s gone over my head a little bit.

You are supposed to rub a pump between your hands and apply to your dry skin (which is a HUGE positive for me, because I can never be bothered wetting my face before cleansing – it’s such a pain). Then you rub it over your skin and rinse it off. The one thing to note here is that the formula is very runny so you have to be careful when you pump it out that you don’t lose it between your fingers and onto the floor!

I find it just melts away all of my makeup almost instantly. You and I both know the power of Double Wear and how it sticks to your skin – I can assure you that this stuff melts it away like the Wicked Witch of the West.

It leaves my skin feeling really nice and it doesn’t feel wet or sticky as it can with some cleansers. In fact I barely feel anything at all.

It never breaks me out and it never leaves an oily residue or makes my skin overly oily. In fact I think it’s actually helped my breakouts before because you don’t have to scrub it or anything so it doesn’t anger your acne but it’s gentle and cleanses really deeply so gets rid of all those nasties which were causing the breakouts in the first place.

Overall I would definitely recommend this. I have no idea what people with dry skin need, but I know it works for my oily, acne prone skin. It would be perfect for you if you wear a high coverage foundation every day as it would keep your skin cleansed and healthy. It’s cheap. It’s easy to find. It’s easy to use. What more could you want?

Have you tried this before? What cleansers do you use and love? I use this alongside a few others too – I love the Lush Dark Angels cleanser too!

Come and join the fun over on Facebook and we can chat about makeup and skincare we love!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Before and After Review Test Best foundation ever

Kia orana class,

Just quickly, if you haven’t already – go and follow my Facebook page for extra updates AND a giveaway when I hit 1000 likes!

For those of you that follow my every move, or have been doing a recent stalk of my blog you’ll know that I said that the e.l.f. Acne Fighting Foundation was my favourite foundation of all time… well, I think it’s time for an update. Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE the e.l.f. foundation! However I think I’ve got a new favourite, and I can safely say it’s my favourite because I’ve repurchased it over 6 times!

Everyone knows about Estee Lauder Double Wear. Like, I know you know all about it. You’re probably thinking “Ugh not another post about that expensive Double Wear foundation, I’m sick of hearing about it, I’m going to close the page and watch Frenchy on YouTube…” STOP! Please. If you haven’t tried this foundation yet then please keep reading, I implore you.

Sleek Highlighting Palette | Midas Touch

Sleek Highlighting Palette Midas Touch Swatches

Bula Vinaka class!

(A ‘warm’ hello in Fijian today!)

Today I need to talk to you about the Sleek Highlighting palette in Midas Touch. The newest member of the Sleek highlighting family, Midas Touch is a blue/cool toned palette that has once again, stolen my heart. Can Sleek do no wrong with their highlighters? Let us go back in time to my review on the Solstice Highlighting Palette by Sleek. It was wonderful. The Angels were singing. The birds were chirping. The sun was out. Everything was warm and sparkly and happy.

Today I feel like I’m in the movie Frozen. The snow is glistening. The ice is cracking. The air is crisp and fresh. Everything is quiet… too quiet. But in a good way. The kind of quiet when you know you’re waking up to a snow day (and a day off school). This palette feels even better than a snow day. It’s the sparkly, glittery, out-of-this-world pigmented little brother of the Solstice palette and I couldn’t be any more excited about it.

Contouring With The L.A. Girl PRO.conceal | Review

L.A. Girl PRO.conceal contouring and correcting review

Tēnā koutou katoa class,

(I thought I should use a variation of greetings to start my posts seeing as that is what we do in class!)

Today I thought I’d have a go at contouring with the L.A. Girl PRO.conceal coloured concealers. I’ve talked about these before in a really old post here but I’ve since picked up a few more colours and used them for over a year so I feel like I have a good understanding and appreciation for the product now.

I am totally not a contouring professional. Everything I know, I’ve learnt from Shaaanxo (we all know shes basically a makeup goddess).  However you can see me try (and maybe fail) at a bit of cream contouring and I’ll swatch and review the concealers for you – how does that sound?

Super Lush Cosmetics Boxing Day Haul

Photo 3-01-16, 9 50 35 AM

Good morning class,

Well, 2015 was the year of the Lush obsession… anyone else? There’s literally nothing better than a Lush bath after a long, hard day of teaching 6 year olds. I became mildly obsessed with having a bath each week featuring a Lush goodie (like a bath bomb, bubble bar or some FUN!) since becoming a bath owner earlier in 2015. It had been a good 5-6 years since I had lived in a house with a bath before then. The last bath-house was my beloved parents home – I wish I still lived there… anyone else?

Need to Get Your Legs in Shape for Summer? | Manuka Doctor to the Rescue!

Manuka Doctor Anti-Cellulite Bronzing Gel Shaaanxo

Good morning class,

Today I’m going to chat about one of my favourite beauty products for summer. My #1 “Summer Essential” if you will. Fake tan.

If you are not blessed with a delicious olive skin tone, or are one of those unfortunate people (like me) whose skin can be one of two colours; pink or white – then you’re probably in the market for a decent self tan.

I think self tanner is a fantastic invention and the way it’s been perfected over the years is incredible to look back on. Let’s face it, not everyone can pull off the deathly pale skin look. For some reason, I think my legs look ten times better with a bit of tan on them, like the tan acts as my rose-coloured glasses or something. Plus, anything to avoid sunburn and skin cancer gets a big fat tick in my book! I’ve never been much of a sunbather anyway…

It’s Beginning To Feel A Lot Like Christmas… LUSH Christmas Collection ♥

Lush Christmas Collection 2015

Good morning class,

Joy to the world, Lush Christmas collection is here! Don’t you dare try to tell me you’re not drooling all over your keyboard with excitement right now! I know it feels too early to be talking about Christmas, but personally I like it! It gets me excited because Christmas is my favourite time of the year!

If you’ve been living under a rock, Lush is one of the most amazing, innovative and exciting brands out there. Every product they make is 100% cruelty free, vegetarian, ethical and awesome. They even create their own glitter! I have never tried a Lush product I didn’t like, and I’ve mentioned them plenty of times before on Miss White’s Makeup Desk.

How (not) To | Groom Your Man – Waxing Edition

Mens-Wax-Strips

Good morning class,

I have been wanting to wax my man’s chest for a wee while now. It’s not that I find it unattractive or anything and of course I’d love him no matter how he looks. But, why not? The hairs on his chest weren’t thick like a bearded caveman, they were sort of sporadically spaced and I quite like that smooth-chest look on a man. Plus I rather enjoyed inflicting him some pain in an evil way…
