If you’re like me you are a regular in the makeup aisle. Perusing the shelves, sampling the latest in lipstick formulas, eyeliners, and foundations searching for a flawless finish. Some people fell in love with makeup whilst making a mess at our mother’s dressing table and ladies, some of us never grew out of it.
Don’t worry, you’re not alone!
However, 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 foundation which can only be the result of skin that’s been properly prepped by removing dirt, oils, and residue daily.
That is why a terrific makeup remover is crucial!
As someone who loves a full face of glam, I learned the hard way that all makeup removers are not created equal. I used makeup remover wipes each night before cleansing and would dismiss the smear of base that would be on my towel after drying off, not thinking that if there was cosmetics there then there was makeup left on my face also, seeping into my pores and leaving area for germs to grow.
Luckily there are a lot of methods for makeup removal besides remover wipes such as cleaning balms, oils, gels, dissolving sprays even makeup removal sticks.
So after a stint of migraines, I decided to update my approach and proceeded with a recommendation from a trusty Centurian Pest Control employee.
I know, it’s a mouthful, but this baby is seriously strong! The oil melts any makeup on the skin, then the micellar water cleanses and removes excess residue before you rinse with your cleanser, which means no more lingering cosmetics on your towels.
My favorites are the Sephora Collection Green Tea Cleansing & Exfoliating Wipes for the skin, which can be soothing, meant to be mattifying and good for acne-prone skin. I also love the Too Faced Mascara Melt Off Cleansing Oil for eye makeup, which works for regular or waterproof mascara!
In the end, it doesn’t matter which way you choose, find the best products that fit in with your lifestyle, just make sure you have one that eliminates all lingering residue, trust me, it’s game changing!
