Solution: Put on makeup!
I knew that cleansing the skin of all traces of makeup was essential so that skin won't get damaged. However, since I wore makeup maybe once or twice a week, I never invested in makeup removers. I figured a good scrubbing with facial cleanser was enough. I guess that's why I was still so pimply. I also read in InStyle that if you wear sunscreen, which I do, you'll still need makeup remover. So for today's Topaz Beauty, I'm going to talk about my makeup removers!
Beauty review site Makeup Alley gave Lancôme's Eau Micellaire Douceur Express Cleansing Water for Face, Eyes and Lips 4.3 stars. The only reason why it's not 5 stars is because it's so expensive. It was only when I read an interview with Emma Watson that I was convinced. She said that Lancôme's makeup removers are the very best and that they remove every bit of makeup that's applied on her during movie shoots and photo shoots. Since I adore Emma, I got myself Lancôme's Eau Micellaire Douceur!
That up there is my current bottle. There's just an inch of it left. I kinda don't want to buy a new bottle because it's not cheap (it's P1,795) and I'm a freelance writer now and my clients haven't paid me yet (hello, magbayad na kayo!). At the same time, because it works naman talaga, the cost isn't really that much. I guess I'm just being a cheapskate now because I'm about to give birth haha.
So thank goodness for Happy Skin!!!
My only con with the Make A Clean Sweep cleanser is it stung my eyes. I know it's supposed to be a gentle cleanser that you can use even for eye makeup but when I pressed the soaked cotton pads onto my eyes, it stung. Hindi naman namula or na-irritate ang mata ko, nasaktan lang. When I read other reviews online, the bloggers didn't have the same reaction naman so maybe ako lang ito.
The only con with Bi-Facil? It's also pricey. I don't know how much it costs here in Manila, but according to the US website, it's $28. That's P1,141. So if I use this and Happy Skin, that's a total of P1,740. So it's basically the same price as the Lancôme Eau Micellaire Douceur!
