Take it all off. Your makeup I mean. Removing all your makeup at the end of the night is so important. We all know that going to bed without washing your face is a beauty DON’T if there ever was one. But there are times when you’re simply too pooped to saddle up to the sink and wash your face properly, as seen here. I can definitely sympathize so here are a few of my picks for lazy, yet effective, wipes to remove makeup and cleanse your face before hitting the sheets for your beauty sleep:
Say Yes to Cucumbers Natural Glow Facial Towelettes These all natural wipes are so soothing to the skin. They remove makeup effortlessly and leave your skin feeling refreshed. They’re so gentle, you can feel good using them on your kids.
Almay Eye Makeup Remover Pads Oil-Free This product is great not only because it’s so effective, but because you can find it in any drugstore. Aloe, green tea, and cucumber make these ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested wipes ideal for contact lens wearers and those with allergies. The combination of soothing ingredients conditions the skin. It’s great for removing lipstick as well.
Korres Pomegranate Cleansing and Make Up Removing Wipes for Oily and Combination Skin If you have oily skin, these paraben and dye free wipes are for you. They cleanse the skin, and protect from free radical damage with pomegranate extract. Bonus, they smell fresh (not fake).
Boots No7 Quick-Thinking 4-in-1 Wipes I use these in my kit on clients and I’m always asked where I found them. Only the most exclusive, posh boutique of course, that’s just how I roll. A little-known place by the name of Target. These ingenious wipes cleanse, tone, and moisturize in one easy step. These hypoallergenic wipes, with skin refreshing witch hazel, remove stubborn waterproof makeup from the eyes with ease and without eye irritation or stinging. Perfect for sensitive types like myself.
*BreBeauty Tip* If you find that your mascara, waterproof or not, is stubborn and likes to hang on and later migrate under your eyes while you are asleep, fret not. This is what I do every morning after my shower. I take a Q-tip, dip it into whatever natural body oil I am currently using (aura cacia) and voila! My raccoon/Adam Lambert eyes are gone. It works every time and it is so soothing and hydrating to the delicate skin around the eyes that it’s an added bonus.
