The Violet Files’ editorial director Christina Han first met Erno Laszlo’s Multi-phase Makeup Remover
after accidentally jetting off to New York without her go-to cleanser. The timing was unfortunate: Han was wearing her favorite Serge Lutens Comb Mascara, whose staying power makes it especially tricky to remove—not just any solution will do. But as luck would have it, she happened to be headed for an appointment at the Erno Laszlo Institute
, where her facialist effortlessly erased the stubborn mascara using the brand’s gentle makeup remover
. “It wasn’t stripping and didn’t leave any oily residue,” she says of the formula. “And my extra sensitive eyes don't get irritated.” She’s been singing its praises ever since.
