Currently watching the Super Bowl, or more like waiting for the halftime show, as I write this post :)
I wanted to share with you this week a couple of my favorite makeup removers/skincare products I am currently using to get all the makeup off my face at the end of the day. One of my main goals was to remove my makeup without using an oily makeup remover that left my face shiny and greasy feeling afterward. Here are some of the things I have been using so far that work great for me!
Don't forget to check out the vendors at the bottom of this post who made this photoshoot possible!
This first product is the Bobbi Brown Lathering Tube Soap. I use this at end of the day to start my makeup removal process. I wet my hands and lather about a dime size amount and scrub it on my face. I feel like this products quickly helps melt my makeup off my face and I can wipe it off with a towel or a makeup wipe.
After I use the Bobbi Brown soap to wash off most of my makeup, I follow it with the Bobbi Brown Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover on a cotton round to scrub the rest of the makeup off my face. Now, this product is one of my favorites, even though they did recently reformulate this product. I mentioned earlier I hate having that oily makeup remover feeling on my face. I hate that greasy feeling. This makeup remover used to feel just like water on my face. No oily feeling whatsoever. They recently did reformulate their product last year, and while it doesn't feel quite the same on my skin and does have a little of that oily feeling, it is definitely still my favorite.
When I'm not using either of the products above, I like to switch up my routine and use the Beauty Counter Cleansing Balm. If you have not heard of BeautyCounter, you need this product in your life. The balm also comes with a small cloth that you can use to scrub your face with. I love this product because it really melts into the skin and gets all the makeup loose so you can easily wipe it off your face. I love using this with my Vanity Makeup Spin for Perfect Skin - Complete Face and Body Cleansing System.
Another more affordable facial cleansing balm I love using is the Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser. This product is similar to the BeautyCounter product because it leaves that dewey feeling on your skin after removing all your makeup. It is also very moisturizing, which is good because it is important to bring moisture back into the face after scrubbing all the makeup off. Ponds also has a Cold Cream and a Dry Skin Cream you can check out!
The Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser is another drugstore cleanser that has worked really well for me for the past few years. This product contains real charcoal that helps lift and remove impurities and dirt from the skin. It also is effective in exfoliating the dead skin cells on the face, making way for the new, glowy skin!
Thats all for the week! Let me know if you try out any of these products and if they work for you! What are some of your favorite makeup removers?!
