Make-up wipes, a waste of money
Wasn’t quite sure whether I should share this or not, it’s not that interesting I think!
However it has been a life saver (well, skin saver) for me this past weekend.
I hadn’t seen my Dutch family for ages and ages, and wanted to spend every minute with them.
As you can imagine, when it came around to bedtime I was too tired for a thorough cleanse.
Anyway the point is I didn’t feel like spending too much time in the bathroom.
My favorite way to get all of the dirt off of my face anyway then?
I use them on failed winged liner , eyeshadow fall out, but also to cleanse my face.
Of course the wipe doesn’t get right into the pores, that’s the main reason I don’t use this cleansing technique every day.
But some days I just really can’t be bothered!
Now they sell make up wipes at drugstores as well as high end stores.
Chanel even carried their own for a while, with the logo embossed on them..
(I bet you made your trash can’s day at least when throwing these away after one use!)
For a while I was convinced that there were some magical ingredients in these face wipes, that couldn’t be replaced!
I don’t mind the oil in them either, the fact that I have greasy skin doesn’t mean I won’t cleanse or nourish with an oil.
As a matter of fact, I like giving my skin the moisture it needs with an oil-based cream when I don’t need my foundation to stay put all day.
However I make sure to get the ones for sensitive skin, and even then I still check the ingredients to make absolutely sure there’s no perfume in them.
The good thing is:
No one washes their face 5 times a day, but you do need a lot of those things for babies.
So one pack naturally comes with a bunch of those lovely, magical, lazy woman’s best friend – wipes.
Check your local drugstore! If they carry a home brand, there’s a good chance those will be cruelty free.
(However Google is still your best friend!)
You can make your own as well though, what the solution on these things boils down to is:
- Baby wash or shampoo
- Baby oil (you can use olive, almond, anything you like)
- Aloe vera gel
Add those together in a bottle, shake it up before use, and you have yourself a make up remover!
I hope this was interesting to at least one person, ha! :)
