Why You Need To Ditch The Make Up Wipes

If you still use make up wipes, I have one word for you; WHY?! If you've been living under a rock for the past 12 months, then I'll give you benefit of the doubt, but seriously jump off the make up wipe wagon and head on over to the make up wipe free train - wow I worded that so well.  Make up wipes are no good to your skin, they contain too many chemicals and give you that red face looked after using them - that ain't a pretty look girlfriend.

Yes they may be quicker and easier- especially after a night out- but your skin hates them, trust me.

So what are the alternatives Bethany? I hear you ask. Well, you've probably heard of some of the following; Garnier Micellar Water, Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser, Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil. All these balms, oils and liquids are all face-friendly alternatives to rubbing a wipe across your face.

Let me explain...

Garnier Micellar Water was a big thing last year and everyone was trying it, and everyone loved it. This water simply disintegrates your make up off your face - its magic. All you need to do it pour a bit onto a cotton pad, hold over your eyes and wipe away or just smooth it over your face. It's as simple as that. And your face isn't red afterwards. This method is similar to The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil but for this one you can just rub a bit between your fingers and massage it over your face and neck then simply just wash off with warm water. These products leave your face feel refreshed and dirt-free, they don't contain any nasty chemicals - plus the camomile one smells good too.
My personal favourite is to use the Garnier Micellar Water first and then the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser to remove any dirt that the micellar water didn't manage to remove. The hot cloth cleanser is simple and sooo beneficial to your skin. Massage the cream into your face and neck and soak the muslin cloth in warm water. Then using the hot cloth, wipe it all over your face to remove hidden dirt and any excess cream. I've written a more in depth blog post on the whole Cleanse & Polish process which you can read about here.

There are so many make up wipe alternatives out there that your skin is probably itching for you to try. So why don't you head down to your nearest drugstore and pick up some of my faves!
