what do you use to wash your makeup off at night

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 

I`m wondering what you lovely ladies use to take your makeup off at night. I have been using a crapping face wash and wanted to find something better for my face and skin, do you wash your makeup off with something different then you wash your face.

 

Thanks ladies

 I would love to share with you what I use to clean up my face from all makeup and dirt.

Olive or castor oil on a cotton pad- clean face gently. Baby oil will do it too. After that I wash my face with warm water to open up the pores and get rid of some of the oil. Then, witch hazel on a cotton ball and clean face and the open pores. Now, your face is clean and smooth. After that I apply vit.C serum( well that is not a part of the cleaning but anyway) and then moisturizer, which I don't really have ..ha, ha... I use olive oil just a bit to moisturize if I don't have a moisturizer I like...which is so hard for me to find. This is my cleaning routine. I really get a clean face after I do this which helps me stay away from blackheads. Once a week I keep my face over steam to open the pores really well (this after I put all my makeup off and clean my face with some sort of gentle soap like baby wash) and then I scrub my face gently with wet corn flour. That cleans my entire face so well and leaves it smooth. After that I do the witch hazel things to kill the bacteria. Witch hazel closes my pores too and I like this.

THere you go. Good LUck to you.

Mines pretty simple! I use Pond's Wet Cleansing Towelettes to get my make up off.. then after I use THEFACESHOP(korean brand) Herb Day Cleansing Foam Lemon-for all skin types. Its more of a cream than it is a foam.. but whatever. All you do to use the cleansing foam is wet your face.. and hands and rub it into a lather on your face then rinse. Then pat dry and I moisturize with Tony Moly Fresh Aqua Tear Drop Gel Cream. I have realized in the past that I HAVE to use the moisturizer after or other wise my skin will look too dried out..like white patches.. it also could be from where i may have not rinsed well enough! But yeah.. thats that!

Yes, I find that nature offers us everything we need to take care of our skin.  I take it and I am thankful for that. I plan on a natural moisturizer which is going to be vegetable glycerin. I made up this routine for myself and I try to adjust it for myself as I feel comfortable.

I hope you adjust to a good routine for yourself. I don't know if unnatural expensive cosmetics can hurt your skin or not but I know that natural stuff won't hurt your skin at all.

Yes I was wondering that myself as I am starting to getting into differnt types of creams and serums I was thinking some of this stuff can't be good if you aply it everyday maybe over time they'll like different cancers to long term use of wrinkle cream or something, you never know.

You are right. So better stick to something simple and natural. No danger from it.

iramana1 that's interesting that you use olive oil to remove your makeup. I know that there's a company DHC skincare that has a facial cleanser that is olive oil based. I've tried it and like it. My skin can be fickle so depending on it's mood for the most part I use Aveeno Positively Radiant cleansing pads, Lancome's Creme Mousse Confort, Mario Badescu's Glycolic Cleanser or Borghese's Crema Saponetta.

I use plain old Dove bar soap to wash my face every night, and it takes off makeup really well too. Sometimes if I wear gel eyeliner that won't come off I use Simple Skincare makeup wipes for the eyes. I got a trial-size sample of the Simple Skincare but will probably shop around for a new eye-makeup cleanser when I run out. For everyday makeup though Dove is the perfect all-in-one cleanser for me :)

My skincare is very very simple.   I dont wear foundation too often. I havent found the perfect cleanser. I find that cleansers dry my skin out. I do like using coconut oil to remove any makeup, including eye makeup (works wonders!)   Then I rinse well with warm water.  I always use my clarisonic with purity,  if I do wear any foundation or concealer.  Rince again.   I damp  a cotton pad in rose water. LOVE rose water. Smells amazing.  It helps with dryness and puffy eyes.  It's amazing as a natural toner.  Then I use argan oil all over my face and under my eyes, necks, hands, and nails.  Pressing the oil into the skin; not rubbing.  I'd say about 5-6 drips per night of argan oil. Argan oil is amazing for anti aging as well! 

I will never ever stop using argan oil or rose water!

I love using MAC makeup wipes personally, they just smell so fresh and my skin feels lovely. Other times I use Lush's 9 to 5 lotion with a flat cotton pad.

I have tried the wipes before but I find I have to scrub to get some of the makeup off which bugs my skin

A lot of people get irritated from MAC wipes.If you're sensitive I wouldn't use them. I use MAC gently off eye makeup remover+ purity made simple cleanser. Anything else breaks me out. Then moisturizer.

To remove my foundation, I use Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil. Then I use my Clarisonic with Philosophy Purity Made Simple cleanser...after that, I use Bioderma to remove any stray traces of makeup that might be left behind.
 

Oh, and finally I tone with witch hazel before applying my evening products.

 I heard the clarisonic aren't very good and can cause rashes if you have super sensitive skin? I was reading a lot of negative reviews about them. I do like oil based cleansing washes beacuse my face is so dry a little oil gives a bit of hydration

Lancôme duo :

Really very soft. Also Micellar waters from various brands, effective and highly soft ( for sensitive skins )

I use Lancome's Eau Micellaire Douceur for removing makeup and I like it a lot. It sometimes doesn't do a good job with heavy eye makeup, for which I use Clinique's Take the Day Off.

 

Next step is Clarisonic. Currently I'm using Murad's Environmental Shield Essential-C Cleanser with it. I like it, but not enough to repurchase. I'm about to run out, and I haven't yet decided what to replace it with.

 

I like to finish off with a toner. My current toner is Biotherm's Biosource Toner for normal/combination skin. But I will go back to my old favourite, Clarins' Alcohol Free Toning Lotion (the green one) because it's easier on the skin, especially in the cold winter months.

 

I think I'm overdoing the cleansing a bit but I'm worried that if I eliminate some steps from my routine the awful blackheads will come back again.

I am Using Facewash,,,,

I gotta say I've tried all type of makeup remover and the best type is cream / paste.

I'm really against to milkish fomular and water fomular, as simple as through all the rinsing, the only thing you will get is wrinkles. And it doesn't clean well.

 

So what cleans better and doesn't need a lot of rinsing?

Makup removal oil or makeup removal paste / cream!

 

The differece between them is the oil actually is for oily or combination skin type and the paste is perfect for dry skin or sensitive skin.

But be careful with oil, since most of them you need to emulsify it with a little bit of water, if the emulsification is not done completely, it may cause acne.

I recommend FANCL mild cleansing oil, or HABA squa cleansing oil.

I don't recommend DHC deep cleansing oil or SHU UEMURA cleansing oil, because both of them has caused acne on my skin.

 

Since my skin is quite dry and sensitive, although oil is good enough for most of the people, my skin could still feel being dried off after the wash.

That's why I use makeup removal paste.

I have tried many brand but the difference is not huge, the only thing I need to say is go for the Japanese brand, if you don't live in Asia, the easiest brand for you to get should be SENSAI and ANNAYAKE (french brand Japanese concept, will go).

 

After makeup remover, I use clarisonic to clean my skin again.

I have been using Olay cleansing lotion makeup remover that was discontinued a few years ago, but I stocked up on as much as I could! It was the best at removing EVERYTHNG, just rub it on, then with warm wash cloth wipe all that gunk off, no dry skin or breakouts. Toner optional, lately use witch hazel. Before I found the Olay cleansing lotion I was using the oil cleansing method and had a few recipes that I mixed up myself, and that did a great job balancing my skin from being overly oily to normal. Also applied natural oils to my face after a spray on hydrosol, or water based serum. Now I just use regular stuff and I don't break out or have greasy skin by 10 a.m. like  it was when I was using the very harsh cleansers that are sold by the skin care lines in departments stores. My skin was so OILY that they were selling me the Clinique#4 system, and my skin just kept getting oilier and oiler. After a couple weeks using oils, my skin was actually amazingly normal! I just always thought "my skin is oily, I need to get the oil free stuff", but my skin kept pumping more out. It was out of control, I am telling you!!! I wish I could find a substitute for the Olay cleansing lotion makeup remover that was discontinued!

Oh and forgot about the micellar waters!! I LOVE THEM!! I have used the Lancôme, MAC version, Caudalie, Koh Gen Do, very gentle and effective. Takes about 4 cotton pads to remove makeup. This works great when I am tired, and sometimes don't even feel I need a moisturizer

post #29 of 42

Depends on how much makeup I have on:

 

If I am feeling lazy I at least use a baby wipe as a remover towelette (they are thicker, wetter, cheaper and work better!)

 

If I have on a lot of makeup -

 

1. (Sometimes) a baby wipe to start with

 

2. Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover (I can't stand most eye makeup remover - they are so oily like)

 

3. Clinique Rinse off Foaming Cleanser

 

4. Estee Lauder Sparkling Clean oil-control foaming gel cleanser

 

5. Clinique clarifying lotion #3

 

6. then a little lotion

 

if I don't have a lot of makeup on -

 

I skip steps 1 - 3

I can't use natural things like olive oil because my skin is very, very oily
