UPDATED Skincare Routine: Removing My Makeup

I've never proclaimed to have perfect skin. Hell, I've never even said I have good skin. As I've said countless times on this blog, my skin is very temperamental; one minute it's good and the next it's terrible. To see one of my latest skin explosions, click here

I've given my skincare routine a compete overhaul so I decided to give you guys an update. I'm really happy with this routine but, don't get me wrong, I still have breakouts and am still very much prone to spots. This routine just minimises that and helps tackle blemishes before they become huge problems. 

Given that I have three separate skincare routines, I decided I'd do three posts! A couple of days ago I uploaded my morning skincare routine. Click here to check it out! 

Before I start, I figure I should give you a tiny bit of insight into my skin. I have combination/oily skin that's quite prone to blemishes. It can be quite dehydrated.

To see what I use to remove my make up, keep reading! 

I typically remove my make up before completing my nighttime skincare routine, however sometimes I do it when I get home from work etc. In that case, I'll tone and moisturise as usual after removing my make up. 

1. Eye Make Up
I never used to use a specific eye make up remover because most eye make up removers break me out. In saying that, I recently started using Maybelline Total Clean Express Eye & Lip Makeup Remover and I'm really liking it. I shake the product, put some on a cotton round and hold in onto my eye for about 5 seconds, wiping it as a remove it. I then turn the pad around and do the same to the other eye.
2. Make Up Wipes
I like to remove the bulk of my make up with a make up wipe. Again, most make up wipes break me out. I really love the Clean & Clear Deep Cleansing Wipes, however I just finished a packet of the Korres Pomegranate Cleansing & Make Up Removing Wipes for Oily & Combination Skin and I really loved them as well. As you can see from the photo above, I'm now moving on to the MAC Wipes which you may have seen in my recent MAC Collective Haul.
3. Make Up Remover
 Finally I like to use an actual make up remover. Before I acquired the MAC Cleanse Off Oil (which I'm really loving) I was just moving straight onto cleansing, however I really love how this extra step works for my skin. I'm finding that there's a lot less product residue on my cotton pad after toning when I use this product. I rub one pump between my hands and work it over my face, rubbing product over my eyes to remove any excess eye make up.

Anyway, that's Part Two of my UPDATED Skincare Routine series. Stay tuned for a post on my nighttime skincare routine! 

What products do you use to remove your make up at the end of the day? Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of them? 


Always look your best,
Sophie
