Charlotte's Take It All Off makeup remover is perfect for removing stubborn, waterproof makeup, conditioning the lashes and preparing them for a new coat of mascara.

    Hold for 5 seconds, and repeat on the other eye. You can repeat as often as needed, but this should be enough time for a lifted-looking lash.
