For eye makeup? Ouch!
I find Vaseline or coconut oil great for taking eye makeup off. I apply straight to the skin then use a wet bit of cotton wool to wipe it clean.
Good thread btw. I struggle to find a good face wash that doesn't make my skin feel tight after using it. Might try the total coconut oil method.
I do not specifically recall a tower but do you? One a day? Sometimes more??
I have a flannel tower.
In my teens I only used soap and water (as it was the only thing available that kept my blackheads and spots more under control) and you very quickly learn how to get off eye make-up without stinging your eyes with soap.
Even if you put moisturiser/ balm/serum whatever on after you have washed it?
See this is why i partly gave up on the oil and hot cloth method as my skin didn't feel properly clean ever.
I quite like stripping it a bit and then letting it drink in a good moisturiser/oil after.
The other reason was like moose I didn't have time and space for all the flannel washing and storage
I have to moisturise after yes.
I used a facial soap thing on holiday last week because I'd forgotten to bring face cloths and hated that stripped feeling. It was a mild Clinique one. I'm totally wedded to the hot cloth cleansing method now and my skin (IMHO) looks so much better. I've never really had spots much but it feels properly smooth and soft now, and properly hydrated which brings back a bit of "glow".
I don't wear mascara, that stuff is nasty.. Lush soap can remove eyeliner and shadow followed by coconut oil. And once a week a mud mask to cleanse pores..
i have a flannel pile, quite small. i use them to freshen my face in the morning but not to take make-up off so they don't need washing after a single use. i do love a hot flannel on the face in the morning.
I use clinique's 'take the day off' when I can be arsed removing makeup properly
I do have some Lush ultrabland, but it's too waxy and overperfumed, and I have rosacea so hot cloths are a disaster for me (even though they feel lovely at the time).
Sometimes one a day (depending on how much make up im removing but more often one every other day.
I just had a cat nap and I dreamed of a flannel tower!!
I take it hot cloth cleansing is the brands getting in on oil cleansing with mix your own oils that got popular a while back?
I did try that a few years back and sort of liked it but, like kitty, felt the need to use a normal cleanser once in a while to feel 'cleansed'. Maybe I should try out hot cloth cleansing. I currently have about 8 underused flannels which mostly I just hang on the towel rail round the sink in order to hide some pipes from my view on the toilet.
I use aqueous cream with warm water and a flannel.
I'll try this tonight.
Just use it like a cleanser. I don't need to moisturise after because it leaves your skin soft.
I do moisturise in the morning after I've washed my face with it, although that is only to give my skin some SPF.
I use this too and it's fucking lovely I use a hot flannel to wipe it off and my face feels fab
I just went to Boots, looked at all the 5 million products, felt overwhelmed and walked out again. Ending up buying the usual cheapo face wipes from Wilkos
Too much bloody choice. Happens to me regularly.
I buy whatever face wipes are on special offer. And then I wash my face in the shower in the morning.
I do have to moisturise a lot though as my skin is very dry. Probably on account of using the cheapest facial wipes. :-/
When I wear my longwear foundation I do a double cleanse with a hot cloth cleanser. It makes a difference.
The Ultimelt™ is excellent - grimy to squeaky in a few minutes. Takes most eye makeup with it as well, micellar water removing the dregs.
i tried this but it gave me spots
I've just discovered the Body Shop's Camomile Cleansing Butter. It's excellent - I think I prefer it to Clinique's Take the Day Off balm and it's cheaper.
This is the problem huh?
Not just too much choice but knowing that a lot of those choices being huge lies.
