Cleansing Waters: Are They Necessary to Your Makeup Removal?
Cleansing Waters were trending quite a bit this Summer and a bit into Fall however, the hype has died down now. I’m always fascinated by readers, friends, etc…who tell me they remove their makeup at night with a cleansing wipe.
Like my sister, bless her little soul, swears by cleansing wipes. Girl does not wash her face in the evening merely uses a cleansing wipe to remove her mascara/eye makeup. Granted, she uses a heck of a lot less makeup than me but still….
Suddenly I feel like my nightly regime is overkill! Cleansing oil, cleansing wash, toner, mist…am I over doing it?
Do I need to rely on a Cleansing Water and simply just that?
Actually, no matter how many brands tell you Cleansing Water is necessary to your makeup removal, don’t believe ‘em! Cleansing Water for is a nice to have product however, it is absolutely not an essential product nor is it something you should rely solely on to remove makeup.
Here’s the deal…
Cleansing Waters are super easy to use. Saturate a cotton pad and wipe your makeup off, DONE! Fantastically fast makeup removal. For those who use very minimal makeup they are a god sent or for those partying a little too hard and getting home a little too late and being a little too lazy about makeup removal, again, god sent.
They make makeup removal quick, easy, and painless and there are even many brands I’d recommend for full on makeup removal including mascara.
However, it’s not something that’s really necessary to your makeup removal unless you’re a minimalist or just want a quick clean up.
The moral of the story is you probably should take some time at the end of your day or night to remove your makeup using something other than a quick clean up method. At the end of a long day you should want to go that extra mile to remove all the dirt, oil, and makeup your skin is hiding underneath by using cleansing oil following up with a cleansing wash that lathers and perhaps a little exfoliation, toner, a bit of facial mist and even a facial mask is a nice treat to keep your skin looking its very best.
Less you suffer dullness, breakouts, and general havoc due to your lazy removal.
At the end of the day Cleansing Waters are sure nice for really quick clean ups when you’re a bit tired but don’t rely on them for your only way to remove makeup.
What do you think?
Do you go the extra mile removing your makeup?
Or are cleansing waters or even cleansing wipes your main removal tool of choice?
