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

not for me
Purchased

I purchased this product because I was hoping to go towards the sufate-free and natural products. However, this is just straight up oil. It gets my eyes filmy. Sometimes it doesn't get all my waterproof eye mascara off. Overall, it does its job majority of the time, but I do think it is expensive for what it is and I will most likely not purchase this again.

Sting-proof but didn't work well on my waterproof mascara
Purchased

I love the idea of an all natural makeup remover. Most makeup removers tend to make my eyes sting and I definitely do not have that issue with S.W. Basics' remover. However, it takes a lot of scrubbing to get my waterproof mascara to come off. Still on my search for a great sting-proof remover but I would use this one again if I don't find another.

Great Natural Makeup Remover
Purchased

I am thrilled with this product! It removes eye makeup flawlessly and it conditions my lashes and acts as a great moisturizer. I have tried a lot of makeup removers in the past and they can burn your eyes or force you to rub more on the sensitive skin around your eyes. THIS product, however, a couple smooth sweeps and the makeup is gone! Then you can use your ring finger to rub in the excess oil and boom- the moisturizing step is done. <3

Perfect
Purchased

3 ingredients, no chemicals. This took off all my eye makeup in a jiffy with no stinging eyes or dryness afterwards. I will continue to buy this and other products by this brand.

This products was way to oily for me and did not have a good scent. I bought this without trying it. Next time I will wait to try something before I order it.

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

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.
