Makeup Removal


To remove my makeup, I just simply use face wash. It APPEARS to get everything off, but does it? If that method was truly effective, wouldn't everyone just simply wash their face rather than use makeup removing solution/wipes? (as it is cheaper, easier and faster). Do you think washing my face isn't enough?

makeup removal

Instead of harsh things, I like to use just a mild soap and lukewarm water. Sometimes a thin film of vaseline works for me

Make-up remover

I mix it up weekly. I use the following products - gentle make-up remover liquid such as Estée Lauder/Simple Clear wipes/Micellar Water or baby wipes. All work well.

I use makeup wipes every night. I'm like a bird in a birdbath at my sink and make such a huge mess otherwise lol

Coco Craze

I use coconut oil, baking soda and a drop or 2 of essential oils to wash my face each night. Works for me :)

Most of the products do additional things like moisturize as they cleanse, but I am quite sure that soap and water does a great job of cleaning. It's what we use at work in healthcare, so don't worry about cleanliness. I can't use soap on my face, it is too drying, and will burn my eyes.

My routine.

I use Miceller water, just Garnier or Simple brand, nothing fancy, and I find it gets rid of the majority of my makeup. The rest comes off with either a cleansing milk or a makeup wipe if I have a LOT of makeup on for some reason.

I've always just assumed that makeup remover wipes/solution were more aimed at people that wear waterproof.

I don't wear waterproof, so my makeup washes off just fine with a face wash, followed by toner and moisturizer. I think your ritual sounds just fine, Anika! I wouldn't worry!

more to do

Wipes and most topical cleansers are only cleaning the top layer of your skin. The only effective way to remove what has sunken into your pores is with an oil. Oils will work both as your makeup remover and your cleanser. No need to scrub or irritate your face.

You don't need to go out and buy an expensive oil either; you can use things like coconut oil (a favourite), olive oil, and baby oil, for a few examples.

I always wipe with a cloth, use an oil and exfoliate before moisturizing. It sure seems like a lot of steps, but if you're not doing these things, then you're more than likely leaving a lot of junk on and in your skin. A lot of people just worry about getting their makeup off too. It's just as important to get all your dead skin off and promote new cell growth for healthy skin.

Of course everyone's skin is different, so you may need to do things a little bit different, but overall it's a good regimen for anyone.

I use...

Neutrogenia face wash then kirklands face wipes as well.... I am always scared the face wash didn't get it all.

I recently just watched a YouTuber who said to cleanse your face twice. Your first cleanse should be an oil cleanse and then your facial wash. This is due to the moisturizer, sunblock and makeup. It's just make your face gets properly cleaned.
