I know there are probably a lot more you can do for a night time routine but I like to keep things simple, so I stick with these 3 easy steps. I remove, cleanse and hydrate.
Step 1: Makeup Removal with Garnier’s Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water
I’ve already mentioned that tinted moisturizer or foundation is part of my every day makeup routine Also part of that routine is my mascara, blush and my lip colour, so do my best to remove all or most of my makeup before I start my cleanse. I really like Garnier’s Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water. I love that it is for combination to oily and sensitive skin. Oh and no perfume for those of you that prefer it. I usually use two cotton pads to clear. If I did a night makeup look I’ll use a little bit more to clear.
Step 2: Cleanse with Eucerin’s Dermo Purifyer Cleanser
Now this my Lovelies is a step I do not rush at all. As mentioned I have large pores and need to maker sure that all the makeup and dirt of the day is gone. I use facial sponges for my cleanse although a cleansing brush gives you a much deeper cleanse. I have read some great reviews on the Clinique Sonic Cleansing Brush, it give a deep and gentle cleanse and works wonders for those hard to reach dirt hugging areas. If you’d like to try the Cleansing Brush and the Clinique Brush is a bit above your price bracket you can try the Olay Regenerist Cleansing Brush with a sample cleanser. It is available at Clicks for R400-00, I’ve seen and read amazing reviews on this brush too.
