Makeup Removers

I wanted to talk a little about Makeup Removers and what I'm really loving. So if you wear makeup you obviously remove it either with soaps,wipes or other facial products. There are so many different products out on the market that are meant to remove makeup, most aren't that efficient at doing so. I always wear liquid foundation plus moisturizers and powder to set it, so there's alot of product on my face. When I go to wash it off many products that I have used aren't successful at removing much of my liquid foundation. I will have patches of skin that still have a lot of makeup and then have to wash and scrub my face with more facial products. I have tried different products to remove makeup and I have finally found one that I am absolutely in love with.

I bought Almay's facial soap for combination/oily skin. The first time I tried it I couldn't believe how well it got rid of my makeup, so I kept trying it out. Now, this is the only thing I use to wash the makeup off my face, its that good. I don't have many products that are my absolute favorites but this one is definitely on the list. After rubbing in the soap to my skin I instantly see my makeup start coming off. Also sometimes to make sure I get everything I use a little exfoliant pad to scrub at my skin. My skin feels really clean afterwards, I love it.

Another product I use for makeup removal are makeup wipes. I try not to use them very often, usually only reserved for when I'm too tired to wash my face. Makeup wipes usually last quite awhile for me because of that reason. The one that I'm currently using and bought at the same time as my Almay soap is a product called Absolute Makeup Cleansing tissues.

I know I definitely didn't pay more than $3 for this but I can't remember how much exactly. It comes in different scents, the one I have is rose scented. The rose scent is pretty strong but different compared to the soap or baby powdered ones out there. So far I have no complaints about the product, I haven't had any reactions to it. Initially I was worried about getting something scented for my face but it hasn't affected it, but then again I don't use it daily. I had never heard of this brand before, usually I opt for well known brands but I decided to give it a try. One thing I have to say is that there are so many wipes inside, Its a pretty thick pack for the money you pay for, which is nice.

Here's a tip on makeup removal; use some lotion. If you want to remove your eye makeup really quick then dab some lotion onto your lids, rub it in and then wipe off with some tissues. Its quick, easy and inexpensive. I wouldn't recommend using lotion to remove facial makeup because it will leave your face feeling sticky and heavy. 

Another tip is to use a little bit of olive oil to wipe away your eye makeup. Too much and it will be too greasy, so just remember a little goes a long way.
