In winter I’m very lazy when it comes to taking off make-up. And here’s a bit of a life-changer: you can take your makeup off without using a drop of water. While I wouldn’t suggest breaking up with the old water routine, the truth is you don’t always have to take a lot of time standing over a cold bathroom skin with your fingers freezing. In fact, too much water can strip the skin of its natural oils, especially if you have dry or sensitive skin.
But it’s very important to take off all of your makeup before bed, if you skip this step, that can cause clogged pores and up the skin’s sensitivity.
So, blame the exhausting work that makes me only think about my bed when I come home or blame the low temperatures that we have been felt that work up my hibernation instincts (or let’s get real and blame my laziness) but sometimes I like to use a make-up remover with a no-rinse formula. I received the Avéne 3 in 1 make-up remover for Christmas and I’m in love.
Let’s see what it is…
‘Multi-purpose make-up remover which removes excess oil, waterproof make-up and impurities from the skin. Formulated with a fresh, and aqueous texture suitable for all skin types’.
- Gentle Cleansing agents helps restore and protect damaged skin and isolates the lesion from external environmental aggressors
- Avène Thermal Spring Water soothes, softens and calms the skin
- Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride nourishes skin
Why I love it so much…
First, the texture is great, it’s very fresh and it has an aqueous texture. The fragrance is not one of my favorites but it’s not bad. This product can be used on face, eyes, and lips. It’s very effective, I don’t need much to dissolve all traces of make-up (including my waterproof mascara).
It contains Avène Thermal Spring Water, clinically proven to be soothing and anti-irritating.
Finally, it’s easy to use! You can use it alone with a help of a cotton and apply a tonic after (sometimes I do that) but I’m a little bit freak about cleansing skin. Normally after using this product I use a micellar water to see if the skin is really clean (the cotton always came white).
Nobody can take us the old routine with a cleanser and water (or my make-up remover glove) but if you want an easy and quick make-up remover without the needing of using water, then try this product, I think you won’t regret.
It has a cost of $20.00 for 100mL/3.3FL. OZ.
