So I was on a hen night at the weekend, yes very fun !, but among all the hilarity from an afternoon cocktail class and a night out full of shots (from a handy shot glass necklace around each of our necks) I realised how much people still swear by using baby wipes and makeup wipes to take their makeup off.
Yes makeup wipes are convenient but so is a bottle of cleanser and some water !
Before I get comfortable on my high horse though 😉 …I will let you in on a little secret …
Up until a few years ago, I didn’t know a typical cleanser you buy actually IS a makeup remover and takes off all your makeup including plentiful eye makeup…WOW. Purely due to the fact it didn’t say ‘Makeup Remover’ on the label, I just took it for granted it was a facewash as such. My beauty therapist was the one who corrected me, and to her I am ever so grateful !
I now ONLY use a cleanser to remove my makeup as I find it so gentle to my skin and either use a cotton ball/ pad or just use my fingers if I don’t have any cottons handy. It’s easy as peas !
It requires you to use water but believe me there’s nothing I enjoy more than a warm, face wash at night to gently clean all my makeup off before bed…it doesn’t wake me up at all, in fact, it sends me to sleep because it’s so relaxing.
Before I was introduced to the wonders of a ‘cleanse’ , all I remember was the amount of scraping I had to do to get my makeup off with a makeup wipe…my face would sting and my eyes burned as I lay in bed trying to get to sleep and would wake up with half my eye makeup still in on my face 😦
So, if you use makeup removing wipes at the moment and are fed up scraping it off like clay then why not give your skin a break and buy a cleanser as it’s something kinder and more gentle to your delicate little face !
AND it works out cheaper with the amount of use you get out of it too… happy days 😀
Just another thought from…
