Why Add a Facial Makeup Remover.

Lately I've been hearing women talk of using more and more cleanser yet they still see makeup residue on their cotton round after applying toner.  Like most, you probably use a makeup remover made specifically for your eyes but have you considered adding a facial makeup remover to your regime?  A facial makeup remover is different than a cleanser; one is designed to break down cosmetic product and the other is designed to clean the skin.  Tools like the Clarisonic can do both.

With advances in technology are allowing makeup to wear longer plus more people are routinely applying SPF as well as more companies adding it to their products, now is the perfect time to explore and invest in a facial makeup remover.  Because if there is residue on your cotton round, there is still makeup on your face.

Look for a makeup remover that compliments your skincare concerns.  This could be the addition of a product based around your skin type or a complete change in your regime.  Investing in a tool like the Clarisonic can remove makeup, cleanse and exfoliate the skin.

Try a facial makeup remover such as Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser by Clinique.  This foamy cream-mousse cleanser removes long-wearing makeup and sunscreens quickly, gently, efficiently. Now that your makeup is removed you can cleanse the skin and conquer any concerns.

Have you ever applied cleanser to dry skin?  Rub the cleanser between your fingertips for even distribution and apply to your t-zone, where you generally have the most foundation, powder and concealer.  Applying 'dry' allows you to use your cleanser at it's most concentrated point and then the addition of water will create suds to sweep away that dirt, oil and debris.  

Invested in a cleansing tool such as a facial brush, Clarisonic or Olay Pro-X Cleansing System?  These tools removes up to 6 times more makeup than cleansing with hands alone.
Lastly, don't forget to clean your neck!  If you blend your foundation and powder down your jawline, you need to clean down your jawline.

Have any tips you'd like to share?


  1. I could look into a facial brush depending on the price of them (yeah, I don't know this stuff) but I also have very dry skin so I don't know if a facial brush would piss it off?

  2. Oh interesting. I usually wash my face at night after taking my makeup off to make sure it's all gone. I'll give the dry routine a try and see how it helps!
