I remember that back in the day, I relied on 5 times washing of the face to remove the foundation applied on me. While I remove the eye makeup using baby oil. How absurd right? Not only do I strip my face off of the natural moisture, I also end up with blurry vision. It was really sad.
Of course there are many available makeup remover out there. unfortunately, many of them are expensive. :( Great thing though that I found a great alternative to those expensive cleansing milks and makeup removers.
Meet my new makeup remover and cleanser!
Pond's Perfect Care Facial Wash and Cold Cream
Let's start with my makeup remover
When Pond's re-introduced this to me, it really made me miss my mom a lot. The lemon-y scent of it brings tears to my eyes because I remember when i use to smell it on her when I snuggle with her in bed (my mom and I shared a bed off and on for 25 years. that's how close we are).
But Mommy was right, this really is a good cream. And if Kylie Minogue could trust her face with this one, I know I should, too, right?
Now, on to my facial cleanser.
It's non-drying and keep my face really soft and clean. After that method, I clean my face again with my treatment soap. But for those of you who are not treating your face with medicated soap or derma products, you can use this as a day and night facial wash. It will not strip away natural moisturizing oils on your face and it will leave feeling fresh. It is also hypo-allergenic so there is no cause for unnecessary skin reactions.
Now, that I've introduced you to a tried and tested makeup remover and cleanser, I'm sure you won't think twice with playing with makeup now. Knowing that you'll get back that clean feel on your face again, you can play around with lots of colors and products day and night. And isn't that just what we all want to do? I know I do! :)
