Taking off your makeup can be the most satisfying or the most tedious task. After a day of a full face of makeup taking it off and feeling fresh faced is heavenly, but depending on your removal method, it can be a laborious, time consuming chore.
Before we get to the good bit, and I rave about this product, lets look at the ones that don’t cut the mustard.
Face wipes :
The biggest ”no no” going. Yes they may be convenient and often cheap, but in order to stay moist they have alcohol in them, which dries out your skin and irritates it. Plus, personally, I feel it makes your skin feel horrible afterward. The less said about these the better.
This product saw a huge surge in popularity in recent years. Already known to the skin-care savvy, brands such as Bioderma were already selling it in France, making it the holy grail quest for any MUA travelling to the continent. Although this is a great one for your skin it isn’t always man enough to cut through waterproof makeup, causing repeat scrubbing, which can be painful.
You shake them, after a few scrubs they take off even waterproof products, but they leave an oily residue, your skin won’t feel great and unless you want to feel oily all evening you will need to use another product to get your skin feeling fresh.
They also come in small bottles so you go though it quickly and often run out unless your stocked up.
Now comes the life changer – cue the angelic music.
The Face Halo
This small disc, made up of fibres, 100 times finer than human hair, can be used with either hot or cold water, and in one swipe will remove even the most long-lasting products. Now when I heard about them and read the reviews I didn’t believe it, I was skeptical, but let me tell you, I am a true believer now. Like a born again Christian, I will preach this at the top of my lungs from the roof tops:
THIS PRODUCT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE
I jump in the shower of an evening will a full face of makeup and in one quick and easy wipe I am as fresh as a daisy.
And I haven’t even got to the best part, they are inexpensive, and reusable. Just rinse with soap after use, and watch the dirty water swirl down the plug satisfyingly, every now and then chuck it in the washing machine with NO fabric softener and watch it last up to 200 washes!
Never get caught short again running out of remover, stop wasting your money on multiple expensive products to remove your makeup and make the small investment into a Face Halo now. Trust me you won’t regret it.
