You may be asking yourself, "is it really a big deal if I sleep in my makeup?" and the answer is a big yes! Your skin will thank you if you go that extra mile. Improper makeup removal can cause breakouts, clogged pores, and premature aging. What's more- if you live in a city, your makeup can cling onto all kinds of yucky air pollution. You don't need that negativity in your life. With so many makeup removers on the market, how do you know what’s right for you? Luckily there is a makeup remover out there for everyone. Cosmetic WipesMakeup wipes are popular because they're easy, they travel well, and there's one for every skin type. You just pull out a wipe, rub it all over your face- and voila! Some people like to keep a pack of wipes by their bed for those nights when their regular skincare routine is too much work. However, makeup wipes may not be the best solution for daily cleansing. They don't do a thorough job of removing makeup so that you may break-out from regular use. As a disposable product, makeup wipes aren't the most environmentally friendly option. Here are a few popular cosmetic wipes on the market. Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing TowelettesBurt's Bees has a variety of wipes at an accessible price point. They contain natural extracts such as white tea and aloe and have been dermatologist tested.Sephora Collection Hemp Cleansing WipesAnother wallet-friendly option with impressive ingredients, the highest-rated cleansing wipe in the Sephora collection, is their hemp cleansing wipe- which harnesses the power of cannabis and Sativa oil to leave your skin feeling mellow.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Facial Cleansing TowelettesNeutrogena has been a drugstore hero since 1930! Their makeup removing wipes won the "Best of Beauty" Allure Magazine award in 2017. These wipes are extra soft so that they won't pull on your skinMicellar WaterMicellar water is basically water infused with surfactants. A surfactant will break up oil and surround those oil molecules, allowing them to be washed away by the water. Pretty fancy science, huh? Micellar water is easy to use and gentle enough to be friendly on all skin types. All you need is a cotton pad and about 5 minutes. You can also use micellar water when you made an oops on your eyeliner, just grab a q-tip and wipe away the offending line without ruining the rest of your work. Because of its gentle nature, however, it may not work on very heavy makeup. Micellar water is a popular "double cleanse" product. A double cleanse is where you follow an oil-based product with a water-based one for max results. But how do you choose micellar water? Here are some popular options. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water All-In-One WaterproofGarnier has made a lovely go-to micellar product that promises to cleanse your skin while removing even waterproof makeup gently. It is oil-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, and scent-free.Philosophy: Purity Made Simple Micellar Cleansing WaterPhilosophy's micellar water is highly rated by consumers. It's a little pricier than your average drugstore brand but promises to be effective for all skin types.Yes to Tomatoes Micellar Cleansing WaterYes to Tomatoes is a cruelty-free product with the official "leaping bunny" certification, animal lovers rejoice! This particular micellar water has charcoal added. Don't let the black color scare you- it rinses off, taking nasty toxins along with it.Oil CleanserOil cleansing is having a pop culture moment right now, but people have been using oils on their faces and hair for centuries. Not only does oil remove makeup better than any other product- it’s wonderfully nourishing for your skin. If you have oily skin, you may be wondering if oil cleansing is for you. Often, the harder we try to strip oil from our skin, the more oil comes up. Oil cleansing can actually slow down your skin's overactive oil production. Weird, huh? As long as you effectively cleanse the oil from your face, any skin type can benefit from oil cleansing. Let’s take a look at some popular cleansing oils on the market. The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing OilIf you're nervous about getting started with oil, this product is incredibly light- it's almost a halfway step between a micellar water an oil. With gentle rice water as a base and jojoba oil to leave you feeling soft and smooth, you can't go wrong.Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Oil with Coconut & Argan OilsCoconut and Argan oils are trendy right now and for a good reason! They are both incredibly hydrating, and you'll find them in this cleansing oil. Burt's Bees is available in most beauty shops and drug stores, so this one is easy to pick up.Tata Harper Nourishing Oil CleanserIf you're going to break the bank, do it with Tata Harper. This cleansing oil is around the $80 mark, but is top-rated among beauty experts. Tata Harper boasts 100% naturally derived ingredients, including an impressive bouquet of botanicals.Cleansing BalmA fairly new entry into the world of makeup removal, cleansing balms are a beautiful way to infuse some hydration into your daily routine. These products are especially effective for dry skin or winter skin. What's nice about a balm is the thick texture makes it easy to work with. It isn't as messy or drippy as other products and leaves you feeling smooth. If you have oily skin or are prone to breakouts, a balm may be too rich. You’ll definitely want to rinse thoroughly, or risk having the product settle into your pores overnight. Here are a few leading brands in the cleansing balm department. Pond’s Cold Cream Cleansing BalmPond’s, an over the counter company that’s been around since 1910, enters the scene with a new take on their traditional cold cream. Unlike cold cream that needs to be wiped away, this balm dissolves in water.Biotherm Balm to OilAnother classic brand, Biotherm has your needs covered with this balm that melts into a cleansing milk. This product is infused with biotherm's special Life Plankton formula, giving you soft, radiant skin.Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing BalmSuited for all skin types, this product promises not to leave behind any residue as it dissolves into foamy milk. Vegan, cruelty-free and gluten-free, and the package is recyclable. The added papaya enzymes help gently exfoliate, making this a true superstar.

A Year in review!
A Year in review!
This year has definitely been a wild ride. I’ve learned so much more about my hair and skin in this last year than I ever thought I would or needed to know! All the way from using witch hazel and not paying attention to my curl pattern, to staying completely fragrance free with face products and staying away from harsh toners and paying attention to what my hair was trying to do! Using this app has really opened doors for me that I wouldn’t thought possible for my beauty process! I can’t wait to see what more years bring me, and us! Thank you @cherie!
