Sleepless nights, practically no time for anything and a baby by my side… that’s how the last few weeks have been and don’t get me wrong the baby by my side is the best feeling ever however having zero time to even take my makeup off properly these days means I need some extra help and thats where the Clinique Take the day off Micellar Cleansing Towelettes * are perfectly welcomed. I am not going to lie I definitely have those days where I just can’t be bothered with a full on cleansing routine, those days have become a little more frequent recently so I’ve been in desperate need of something that can remove my makeup in a flash without drying my skin out and making it feel tight.
Clinique have just introduced some new cleansing towelettes to their range, I imagine the are called towelettes and not wipes because they are larger than your average face wipe and they are also super-saturated with a combination of moisturising, skin conditioning ingredients and a good amount of oil vs water-soaked into the wipe to ensure makeup is removed easily and comfortably. The idea is to use these pre cleansing to remove the bulk of your makeup prior to using the Clinique 3-step system and this is something I really like to do although If I’m feeling extra lazy or a little short of time then I just use the wipe alone and it does remove my makeup nicely. My mascara never completely comes off using these wipes but I suppose as suggested you are still meant to cleanse properly afterwards and when I do this then all makeup is fully removed so no big issue there. The towelettes glide over the face with ease and have good amount of slip to them, I notice my skin feels very soft after use and also a little balmy/moisturised which is something I’ve never had with wipes before, it feels refreshed and the wipes are very luxurious to use on the skin.
The Clinque Take the day off Micellar Cleansing Towelettes are allergy tested and 100% fragrance free, you can purchase them for £16 and that is for a pack of 50 towelettes so perfect for those lazy nights and ideal for travel!
Do you have lazy nights where you just grab a face wipe or do you cleanse every night without fail?
