I had the lovely opportunity to meet Alicia Goodwin, who owns her own Makeup Eraser business; and since I had just barely heard of MUE recently, I asked her about it!
luxurious Polyester towel that removes makeup with nothing other than water. It is soooo soft! It reminds me of microfiber and feels very nice against your skin.
This MUE will last for about 1,000 washes (roughly 3 years), it won't stain, and the only maintenance that it needs is to be thrown in the laundry with the rest of your towels.
Alicia's favorite thing about her Makeup Eraser is that it is 100% chemical free! It doesn't irritate her sensitive skin or leave her feeling oily, and works just as well as store-bought makeup removers.
When I heard about this product I was so curious to try it out! I was surprised that it said this can remove ALL makeup, including liquid eyeliner and mascara.
It comes in a super cute eraser-shaped box, so it was a delightful package to receive in my mailbox!
I checked my mail literally on the way to my car for a short road trip! My boyfriend and I are house-sitting for a friend in Big Bear, CA. this weekend, so it was a bonus to take along with me! Perfect time for a car selfie! (Don't worry, my bf was driving! ;)
And here's all the contents:
The directions indicate that you need to wash the MUE before your first use, but since I had literally just done a load of laundry hours before getting it in the mail, I opted to hand wash it once I got to our friends house, and then I let it air dry. This seemed to work out just fine, and I think it's recommended because some of the pink dye comes out during the first wash.
Side note - have any of you ever been to Big Bear? It is SO pretty up here! This is our view from the back patio.
I thoroughly enjoy drinking my morning coffee out here. It's so quiet I can almost hear my heart beating! If the drive up the mountain wasn't so laborious I would totally consider moving up here.
So onto our experiment! As you can see, I've got a full face of makeup on today - mineral foundation, blush, three shades of pink eye shadow (I wish that came out better in the picture because it's totally cute!), liquid liner, mascara, and eyebrow enhancer.
By the time I got to washing my makeup off that night, the Makeup Eraser was mostly dry from my pre-wash. So I soaked it with warm water and wrung out most of it. I started easy - on my cheeks. With just a few circular swirls of the MUE I could see the mineral foundation and blush were coming off quite easily.
I moved on to my eye makeup and was pleasantly surprised to see how easily it was all coming off! I did have to add a little more water, and after that it was all a breeze.
So here's my naked face, post-MUE! As you can see I was a bit apprehensive about showing you my naked face LOL.
I'm thinking that with Halloween just around the corner, this would be a great addition to pick up along with all that costume makeup that you'll be putting on! What a great way to get all that off at the end of the night (or the next morning!) without any hassle.
So once I was finished up, I hand-washed my Makeup Eraser with warm water and my classic Ivory soap and the makeup came off very easily (is there Teflon in this material?) and hung it up to dry for next time!
I really am amazed at how well this works, and I think it's so great that you can remove ALL of your makeup with absolutely no chemicals or oily store-bought makeup removers. The fact that it lasts so long is such an awesome bonus!
Here's what Alicia said about her first experience with MUE and why she chose to start her own business:
I was inspired to join the company after seeing that the product actually worked! I also fell in love with the ability to not only sell online, but to truly make this a business by setting up retail accounts and giving them an opportunity to make a profit as well.So if you'd like to try this awesome Makeup Eraser yourself, or if you're interested in learning more about how to earn some extra holiday cash, or even how to start your own business, contact Alicia here!
