VMV's Oil and Oil-Free Makeup Removers

Tis the season for fatty goose liver, holiday binge eating, endless Christmas parties and merrymaking. It can mean a lot of makeup, too!

What's a girl got to do? I can't stress enough how important it is to remove makeup every night. I am a victim of forgetting to do this sometimes --- and I'm paying for it dearly. I still have remnants of my acne from years ago. I wish I had the patience to do this every night. Still, options never run out. Today, I'm sharing with you new products from our friends at
