Double cleansing with a cleansing balm and lukewarm water is a great way to remove makeup at the beginning of your skincare routine. After cleansing, your routine probably consists of one or more facial serums, but did you think they can help with makeup removal too? At least acc Selena Gomezdo they.
On Jan. 5, Gomez took us through her skincare routine via TikTok, where she shared some pretty…er, interesting tips. Namely, the way she begins removing her makeup with a $478 La Mer serum. And before your jaw drops at the price of the Concentrate Serum, Gomez says you can get the same results with any skincare serum you have on hand — albeit Beckon recommends sticking with your favorite makeup remover.
Gomez has her hair tucked behind a black headband and squirts a dropper of La Mer’s Concentrate Serum onto her cheek. Since the eye area should be treated gently, especially when removing eye make-up, she rubs the serum lightly onto her shaded lids with her middle finger.

The Rare Beauty founder seems to be aware that her La Mer makeup removal method comes with a price point that requires your own payment plan if you’re a regular person making a regular amount of money. She captioned her beauty routine on TikTok, noting, “PSA I got most of these products for free. I don’t just roll all over like that.” And thank goodness, because not once Beckon Editors could keep up with this routine. We’ll stick with our micellar water and cleansing balms, but you do, Sel.
