Estee Lauder Take It Away Review - The Dermatology Review

Estee Lauder Take It Away Review



Oil-based makeup removers are great for additional some extra nourishment, but for some skin types, they can be a bit too heavy and greasy. If this is the case for you, you may want to look out for a water-based makeup remover like the Estee Lauder Take It Away. This gentle yet effective formula removes all traces of makeup including long wear and even waterproof formulations to leave you with soft, supple, completely clean skin that’s ready for the rest of your routine. As we mentioned, this product is water-based, which can be helpful for those of you who battle with congestion often or deal with skin conditions like fungal acne and can’t handle plant oils. Because of that, we’d recommend this type of product to those of you with oily, acne-prone or sensitive skin types especially, as this product will thoroughly remove your makeup without causing any sensitivity, irritation or congestion. With that said, the one potential skin sensitivity to watch out for is fragrance. The brand does say that this product contains a refreshing citrus scent, so if you know you have a hard time with products that contain fragrance, you may want to perform a patch test before incorporating this product into your routine.
