Why I Stopped Using Makeup Wipes…

Late nights. Couple of drinks, a good time chatting and catch ups are over and done with. Travelling home. I wish I could magic the makeup off my face. Why did I put makeup on?

Those are the thoughts that usually run through my head when I’m tired and ready to head to the land of nod. But my conscious wouldn’t let me sleep with a full face of makeup. Gone are the days I’d wake up with panda eyes. I soldier on and stand by my basin merticulously pampering my face with concoctions of only my fav holy grail products *so proud*

In the darkness of the car and maybe with the help of the center light, I’d rummage through my bag to retrieve my packet of makeup wipes. (Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes purple pack if you were wondering). I’d sit in the near darkness of the night rubbing my face and maybe using the assistance of the tiny mirror that would even make Cinderella wonder why her pores look so large.

It’s then I thank the wonderful team at Neutrogena for their magic wipes that make me feel just a little better at the end of a long night.

If 6 months ago my future self came to me and said I’d stop using them (not till the end of time) but for an alternative that I’d actually be looking forward to removing my makeup and I couldn’t do it in my car *gasp* I’d probably say, “yeah sure”.

Yes, tis true. In fact I love coming home and reveling in the sanctuary of my bathroom. It’s a little me time moment of the day that I feel like I can unwind and enjoy. Massage my face a bit, rub in a serum or moisturizer and feel my complexion become silky smooth.

My Deluxe Fiber Facial Cloth is soft yet has the ability to remove all my makeup with gentle swipes. The warm water is just so comforting on my tired eyes as I hold the cloth to them. I really feel refreshed and honestly there’s nothing better than laying your face down at the end of the night and knowing your skin is fresh, cleansed, exfoliated and moisturized. Okay maybe when you have clean hair and you lay down on your pillow and the lightness feels like heaven, maybe that’s a close second to that face feeling.

I like to use micellar water sometimes, but mostly I stick to water morning and night. Using two of my exfoliation methods being the two finger technique and double deluxe exfoliation method (vid coming soon). Below is my first technique.

So, as I write this I am yet to pop on my moisturizer and feel like crawling into bed right now. As always remember to love your health πŸ™‚
