8 posts in this topic

how do you do it....do you wash it off before using a alcohol free wipes (eg witch) and then do the face wash/bp stuff after or wash it off whilst doing the regimen....im using proactiv at the moment and i dont know when to take off this small amount of concealer i put on my face, because i know when i use the cleanser wash thing in the shower it probably wont remove all the concealer and it will just remain there and make the skin red or something. At the moment i just wipe it off using those wipes you can get, but im not sure if this is the best way...thanks!

Try using a gentle facial cleanser (lotion or cleansing bar) prior to using your regimen products or prescription products. Using any kind of wipes could be an expensive proposition over time!

Hi,

I use Pond's makeup remover wipes before I start my evening routine. If I have been out and have been really dressed up, I will wipe my face down with witch hazel after the wipe and before cleansing (esp around the hair and jaw line) to break up the makeup. Hope that helps!

I remove my makeup using Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash. However, I don't really wear anything besides foundation & lipstick. A gentle cleanser should be fine, provided it removes all of your makeup. smile.gif

I just wash my face twice with my normal cleanser and follow with toner (and moisturizer). The first wash removes most of the makeup. The second wash removes the rest of the makeup and cleans my face. The toner makes sure of that.


99.5% Clear (skin gets 'congested' PMS week, but no actual breakouts)

---------------------------

Fragrance-Free Baby Wipes + a few drops Rimmel Makeup Remover solution

3/4 AHA Toner* & 1/4 Glycerin (cotton pad) -- good toner, moisturizer, and makeup base (use less glycerin if not under makeup)

Occasional Treatments (2-3x/week): Exfoliating bp wash* in shower, 2.5% bp lotion* at night

CoverGirl TruBlend Powder Foundation

---------------------------

* = Klear Action Kit (Pro-Activ knockoff)

---------------------------

Gluten-free diet (for non-acne reasons, but it seems to have cleared my acne)

Would jojoba oil get rid of eye makeup?
