I am sure you all may know the important of removing all your makeup before bed. (Although, I personally remove it as soon as I get home.) I truly believe that your skin needs to “breathe” and leaving makeup on too long, no matter how good the makeup, can lead to breakouts, blemishes and wrinkles in the long run.
The answer, of course, is a great makeup remover. I feel like I’ve tried it all when it comes to makeup removers, and these are my absolute favorite, best makeup removers to recommend.
First and foremost has to be the Bioderma Hydrabio H20 Micelle Solution – but of course, you all know about my love of micellar waters! So Bioderma’s cult-classic one should not be a surprise. However, I much prefer the Hydrabio line to the main line and definitely recommend it if you have dry, sensitive skin that tends to break out.
L’Oreal Paris Dermo-Expertise Absolute Eye & Lip Make Up Remover is also a fantastic one. I’ve watched this makeup remover get more and more expensive over the years! This was a find in high school, and little did I know it’s one of the best drugstore beauty secrets.
Another favorite is the Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover. This is a more greasier formula but that only means one thing – it will take off anything. My favorite especially for thicker and waterproof makeup. I’ve also recommended this to every type of woman of every skin type and age, and they’ve all loved this too.
Lastly: Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes. If you’ve broken the #1 makeup rule and just can’t remove your makeup or wash your face before sleeping, then this is the next best thing. Use a couple of wipes to wipe off all makeup, and then apply micellar water to the skin to properly clean it.
