Do I still need to use an eye or face makeup remover?

Only if you are wearing waterproof mascara or waterproof makeup. Otherwise, this cleanser is effective at gently removing all other types of eye makeup. If an eye makeup remover becomes necessary for tenacious makeup, be as gentle as possible and use a mild yet effective product such as Paula's Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover, either before or after this cleanser.

I have normal to dry skin that gets oilier in the summer - would Hydralight One Step Face Cleanser be a good seasonal choice?

Yes! The lightweight, refreshing gel texture of Hydralight One Step Face Cleanser is ideal for use during the humid summer months if you have normal to dry skin.

How does Hydralight One Step Face Cleanser differ from Calm Redness Relief Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin?

Calm Redness Relief Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin has a completely new, silky gel texture that produces a soft, cushiony lather to cleanse extra-sensitive yet oily skin without a trace of irritation. This clean-rinsing formula contains ingredients to protect and preserve skin’s delicate barrier while easily removing excess oil. Plant-based soothing agents begin the process of diminishing redness, prepping skin for the rest of your Calm routine. For more information on Calm, visit the Calm Redness Relief Collection page.
