S.W. Basics

Birchbox Breakdown

What goes on must come off. And when it comes to removing our makeup, we want the process to be as quick and painless as possible. This Brooklyn brand’s organic makeup remover removes the day’s buildup in a flash, and is mild enough for even sensitive skin. It also works as a moisturizing face oil, which means we can simply rub in the remainder—pretty sweet, right?

How it Works

This lightweight makeup remover is made with just three ingredients: organic sweet almond oil, organic extra-virgin olive oil, and nourishing jojoba oil. It removes every bit of makeup sans burning eyes or greasy residue.

How to Use

Shake well and apply with a cotton ball. Wipe away excess or gently massage into skin using your fingertips.

Organic sweet almond oil, extra-virgin olive oil and jojoba oil

so, it's oil
Purchased

honestly, i find this to be great packaging (heavy glass bottle, reminiscent of old apothecary drugs)...but in the end it's a simple blend of oils, that feels oily on your face, and leaves some oil. it works to remove makeup as well as any scentless $2 lotion you have around

works as intended
Purchased

i needed a makeup remover that would cut thru my waterproof mascara, and this does the job. it's unscented. and comes in a cute little glass bottle.

Love this Natural Product
Purchased

I really like using this for facial massages rather than it's intended use (makeup removal). It works fine enough at removing makeup and even waterproof mascara with a little rubbing, but it feels so nice moisturized into the skin to help massage and stimulate blood circulation in the face. Love the all natural ingredients list too.

Excellent and easy
Purchased

No scrubbing needed! I put this on a cotton ball and my heavy eye makeup wipes off with one wipe. I LOVE that I don't have to scrub the heck out of my face! It also leaves my face feeling moisturized. It is a little pricey, but worth it.

Very oily but good
Purchased

This product was a little oily for me, but very good if you have sensitive eye area. I will definitely buy again if I do not find something for sensitive eye area.

Simple Perfection!
Purchased

I love this and use it nightly as an oil cleanser to remove my makeup and the grime from the day from my skin. It's light and lovely, and doesn't clog my skin.

Could I make this my self? Absolutely! SW Basics started as a DIY workshop, but the customers demanded to buy the products. I love the quality of the ingredients and the mission the founder is on to source responsible ingredients. So, until I can do the same, I will continue to buy this lovely, natural, nourishing product.

it works, but...
Purchased

Like a lot of people here -- I also found this to be heavy and oily on my eyes. It works, but I feel like I have to swipe my eyes a lot and then they feel heavy.

Way too oily
Purchased

This product was very oily on my skin. I would try to rinse it off with water but it still was stuck to my face. Maybe it would be best used as a night time makeup remover only. I would not purchase this product again.

Will buy again
Purchased

I was skeptical about using oil to clean my face. My skepticism was quickly dissolved the first time I used this product. My face broke out less and it was so fresh looking

Not the greatest
Purchased

I bought this because I recently switched all of my products to ones without chemicals. This was nothing special I could have easily used olive oil instead. Pretty expensive for "so-so" results.
