Take The Day Off: Removing Makeup

Taking your makeup off after a long day is such an important step and something not to be missed no matter how tired (or drunk) you may be. I'm quite good usually, and I'll put that down to the Garnier Miscellar Cleansing Water (that i've actually talked about before here). A quick drip on a cotton pad and you're good to go... If it's here you stop, I mean it's better than nothing but a good ol' cleanse is something really we shouldn't miss. I'm bad, I miss this step every now and again and really, that's not okay, but I do find that my skin deals with it fine and for that I know I'm just lucky. 

For a good cleanse, I'd recommend the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish*, it's a really natural cleanser and works so well for anyone I know that's tried it. Using a muslin cloth with it allows you to give your skin a good scrub while making sure all of your makeup has come right off. I'd then recommend carrying on your skincare routine as normal with a toner and moisturiser. But I'm a Liz Earle lover and so my recommendations are a bit predictable... 

It doesn't take long, so go on, just take the day off...

What do you use to take your makeup off?

  1. I use cleanse and polish for my morning cleanse as a general rule but I am a fan of the Garnier Micellar water for removing my make up before I go in with a balm cleanser.

    1. Ooh, I actually have that in my stash. Shall have to give it a go! xx

  3. I use the same! I used to use Bioderma but I found it to be a lot more harsh than Garnier! But I skip cleansing sometimes too, oops! X
