If you’re like me you’re a regular in the cosmetics aisle. Perusing the shelves, sampling the most recent in lipstick formulas, eyeliners, and foundations in search of a flawless finish. A number of us 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 process of putting it on. An impeccable beat starts with a perfect base which can only be caused by skin that’s been properly prepped by removing dirt, oils, and residue every day.
That is why a terrific makeup remover is crucial!
As someone who loves a complete face of glam, I learned the hard way that all makeup removers aren’t created equal. I used makeup remover wipes every evening before cleanup and would dismiss the smear of base that would be on my towel after drying off, not believing that if there was makeup there then there was still makeup left on my face also, seeping into my pores and leaving area for bacteria to grow.
Luckily there are tons of methods for makeup removal aside from remover wipes such as cleansing 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 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 completely changed my makeup and skincare 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 rinse with your cleanser, which means no more leftover makeup on your towels.
Hallelujah!
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 whole routine. My favorites are the Sephora Collection Green Tea Cleansing & Exfoliating Wipes for the skin, which are soothing, meant to be mattifying and great for acne-prone skin. I also love the Too Faced Mascara Melt Away 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 ensure you have one that eliminates all lingering residue, trust me, it is game changing!
