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 making a mess in our mother’s dressing table 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 caused by skin that has been properly prepped by removing dirt, oils, and residue every day.
That is why a great makeup remover is KEY!
As someone who loves a full face of glam, I learned the hard way that all makeup removers aren’t created equal. I used makeup remover wipes every evening before cleansing and would ignore the smear of foundation that would be on my towel after drying off, not believing that if there was makeup there then there was makeup left on my face also, 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 went with a recommendation from a trusty Ulta employee. Sister to the cult-classic Lancôme’s Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover, the Lancôme Bi-Facil Face Bi-Phased Micellar Water Face Makeup Remover & Cleanser has totally changed my skincare and makeup game.
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 even rinse with your cleanser, so no more lingering makeup on your towels.
Hallelujah!
Do not get me wrong, I still keep makeup remover wipes by my mind or in my purse for all those nights I’m too tired to do my whole routine. My favorites are the Sephora Collection Green Tea Cleansing & Exfoliating Wipes for skin, which are soothing, supposed to be mattifying and great for acne-prone skin. I also love the Too Faced Mascara Melt Off Cleansing Oil for eye makeup, which functions for regular or waterproof mascara!
In the long run, 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!
