If you’re like me you are a regular in the cosmetics aisle. Perusing the shelves, sampling the latest in lipstick formulas, eyeliners, and foundations searching for a flawless finish. Some of us fell in love with makeup whilst creating a mess in our mother’s vanities and ladies, some people never grew out of it.
Don’t worry, you’re not alone!
But being the makeup junkies we are the process of taking it off is just as important if not more than the practice of putting it on. An impeccable beat begins with a perfect base that can only be the result of skin that’s been properly prepped by removing dirt, oils, and residue every day.
That’s the reason a great makeup remover is KEY!
As someone who enjoys a complete face of glam, I learned the hard way that all makeup removers aren’t created equal. I used makeup remover wipes each evening before cleanup and would dismiss the smear of foundation that would be on my towel after drying off, not believing that if there was makeup there then there was still makeup left over on my head as well, seeping into my pores and leaving room for bacteria to grow.
Luckily there are a lot of methods for makeup removal besides remover wipes including cleansing balms, oils, gels, dissolving sprays even makeup removal sticks.
So after a stint of breakouts, I decided to upgrade my strategy and proceeded with a recommendation from a trusty Ulta employee.
I know, it’s a mouthful, but this baby is seriously powerful! The oil melts any makeup on the skin, then the micellar water cleanses and removes excess residue before you even rinse with your cleanser, so no more leftover makeup in your towels.
Do not get me wrong, I still keep makeup remover wipes by my mind or in my purse for those nights I’m too tired to do my entire routine. My favorites are the Sephora Collection Green Tea Cleansing & Exfoliating Wipes for the skin, which are soothing, supposed to be mattifying and great for acne-prone skin.
In the long run, it doesn’t matter which way you choose, find the best products that fit in with your lifestyle, just ensure that you have one that removes all leftover residue, trust me, it is game changing!
