Three Reasons Why I Love Face WipesFriday, October 16, 2015
Today I'm going to talk about a product that I feel many of us have relegated to our bathroom cupboards in the fear of being told off by the skincare police. But I want to talk about them today, cause over the past few months, I've re introduced them into my skincare routine, and hey guess what, the world hasn't stopped spinning.
I've done a little bit of travelling this year, and this means that my skincare routine went out of the window. When I went away for ten days with Trek America in May, I spent most of that time in a tent, so there was no way I could rely on a fancy cleanser and a flannel. I used make up wipes the whole time I was away, and my skin didn't go crazy, and I suddenly remembered how handy they are.
With make up wipes being a current staple in my routine for removing my make up - my favourites are the Simple Micellar Cleansing Wipes and here are the main three reasons why I love them so much.
1. They Save You Time: Whilst I'm not saying that you should just use face wipes alone, I do think face wipes especially the Simple Micellar Wipes, do a great job at removing your make up effectively and efficiently. These wipes are essentially micellar water soaked cotton wipes, they're super soft and don't feel like their dragging across your skin. They're great for sensitive skin, and do a great job of removing all your make up, even stubborn waterproof mascara and matte lipstick. I just find them so quick for removing all your make up, so you're ready for the next step of your skincare routine. The wipes are big enough for your whole face, and if I've been filming I tend to use two wipes to get all my make up off. I always use a cleanser afterwards to treat my skin, but I don't see the point in spending money on a cleanser to just take my make up off.
2. They Don't Irritate My Skin: Over the past couple of months, my skin has been dehydrated and very sensitive. To be honest, it's probably a mixture of things, the change in weather, the fact I've been a bit stressy recently, and a lack of sleep. However these wipes are so simple (no pun intended) there's no artificial colours, or perfume in them or any alcohol or oil, so you don't have to worry about your skin breaking out or becoming sensitive. They are so gentle and hydrating that my skin doesn't break out in loads of spots or become dry. With ingredients such as triple purified water, they really help to hydrate skin which is perfect for Autumn with a change in weather. They're a gentle way to take off my make up, and I am so glad to have found a couple of products that don't rock the boat when it comes to my sensitive skin.
3. They're Travel Friendly: Like I mentioned above, this summer I have been doing a little more travelling than normal. From trips to America to back home, I've been throwing a pack of make up wipes every time I go away with me, and they are so travel friendly, are no fuss and just save any worry about will there be a flannel in the hotel room? Genuinely something that has crossed my mind before.
I am a big fan of face wipes, especially now the nights are colder as when bedtime rolls around, I just want to hop into bed. But also because my skin likes fuss free products and the Simple Micellar Wipes are perfect for me and my routine. I swear by them, and recommend everyone having a pack in their bedside cabinet even to just use for nights when you are particularly tired. I do believe that Simple are one of the best skincare brands on the market, my sister swears by their products and their Hydrating Light Moisturiser will always help me out when my skin is dry and dehydrated.
I cannot sing Simple's praises enough, and that's not just cause I'm working with them at the moment, they just get it when it comes to sensitive skin. My skin is looking healthier and clearer, and we're getting there. I've deleted steps in my skincare routine,and my skin is lapping it up, Sometimes fuss free is better. Oh and remember when you are reading blogs to remember that what works for you, works for you. Don't worry about not using products other people don't like, and vice versa. Work out what works for you and your skin type and run with it :) Your skin will thank you- trust me.
