TAKE 5: Face Wipes

face_wipes

Sleeping with makeup on is a major no no. It clogs your pores, creates a breeding ground for bacteria, eyelashes become dry and brittle, and skin doesn’t have a chance to repair itself while you snooze.

If you know that you get lazy after a long day at work or night on the town, try leaving a package of face wipes beside your bed. It is super easy to quickly cleanse your face before you fall asleep.

We have tested some of the top brands of cleansing cloths to find out which ones really work.

    I’m going to have to try the L’Oreal one! That seems to have gotten the best review and L’Oreal has always been my favorite for makeup removers. I’m so lazy when it comes to taking my makeup off at the end of the day so this was very helpful! Thanks for the post! ;)
