Natural Make Up Removal

As important it is for us ladies to have a fine selection of make up, it is just as important to have the right products for make up removal. We need to treat our skin with the love and respect it deserves and one way of doing that is to ensure that we remove our make up properly every night.

Trilogy Make Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm

My new favourite product is from the award winning skincare brand Trilogy. The make-up be gone cleansing balm is a must for my bathroom (in fact it is such a must that I keep a spare pack on reserve, just in case of emergencies)!! This luxurious remover has been designed to remove foundation, lip stick, eye shadow and mascara. This balm feels phenomenal on the skin both during and after use. The blend of rosehip, mango and coconut help it to melt onto the skin and wipe away all traces of make up and grime. If you would be prone to dry skin you could always leave a touch of the balm on as the ingredients contain moisturising properties which help to hydrate the skin.

Apply ¼ teaspoon on to your fingers and apply to a clean, dry face. Massage in and feel the make up melting away. An unbleached, organic cotton cloth is also provided with each tub of the balm. Rinse the cloth with warm water and gently wipe over the entire face.

Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes

If you are away you can find that spending time taking off your make up and bringing your tub of magic with you is not always ideal, so why not pop a pack of wipes in your bag. In this case the Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes are an ideal choice. These pre-moistened face wipes help to refresh the skin and remove all traces of the day which may be left behind. This product is enriched with white tea extract which can help to neutralise free radicals and it can also help in reducing any damage which may be caused to your skin as a result of environmental pollutants.

These towelettes are ideal for those planning a weekend city break or those heading to festivals. Pop them in your bag and freshen up as you go. They are definitely my top choice of face wipes.

These two products make life extremely easy while leaving your skin looking and feeling great and I would highly recommend investing in them . . . your skin will thank you (and me) for it!!
