After sitting through a recent beauty event that walked us through the whopping nine steps of the ultimate skincare routine, all I could think was: “Who the hell has time for this!?” Yes, of course, I love skincare products and I also love taking care of my skin, but the reality is I just don’t have time to spend hours taking care of it each day. In fact, I hardly have five minutes.
Q4 is always a particularly hectic time of the year, and when my work days run well into 16-hours, I find it challenging enough to undress for bed, never mind tackling a full nighttime skin cleansing regime.
Enter every busy woman’s best beauty weapon: the cleaning wipes. While these are not exactly a revolutionary new product, they are an essential for any woman to get their makeup off as fast as possible before passing out.
Now the question always is, which face wipe is the best one to use? I’ve tried a number of different options over the years and have and loathe to try a new brand that delivers dry wipes that don’t remove makeup thoroughly, and dehydrate the skin.
This is why I’ve turned to NEUTROGENA® face wipes time and time again for not only how effective they are, but their ease in accessibility and affordable price point. NEUTROGENA® wipes are not only gentle, but are made of ultra-soft clothes that contain cleansing technology so effective that it even removes stubborn waterproof mascara. These wipes are so good the they gently erase 99% of your makeup in just 1 wipe, which is a 99% increase in removal compared to the nights when I haven’t been able to muster the energy to deal with properly washing my face.
A common concern (that’s totally valid) is how makeup wipes can be used when you’ve got sensitive skin. I too have sensitive skin and like to be very careful about what I use, but NEUTROGENA® wipes have always kept my skin clean and happy. Now they’re taking things to the next level with the new NEUTROGENA® All-in-One Make-up Removing Cleansing Wipes that are fragrance-free, ophthalmologist tested, dermatologist tested, allergy tested and alcohol-free.
So maybe they’re not going to be the best thing for you to use every single night, but when you’re exhausted and feeling lazy, at least you can feel good about getting the best possible clean without having to turn on the taps. In fact, I just keep a pack of NEUTROGENA® wipes on my bedside table to reduce the amount of movement required to get makeup off of my face at night!
NEUTROGENA® make-up removing cleansing wipes can be purchased in packs of 25 for $9.99 – $11.99 from your local drugstore. For more information, please visit Neutrogena.ca
