Makeup wipes are convenient to keep by your bed side for those evenings when removing your makeup feels like a chore. I love traveling with makeup remover wipes since it can just be thrown in your purse, carry on, or main luggage compartments with no spills.
Well, what is a girl to do when she’s up packing for a trip with a departure time less that 12 hours away (it’s already midnight), and the discovery is made that only one makeup remover wipe is left? Well, things around me began going in slow motion immediately. I despise moments when I feel overly organized only to discover moments later I’m not as cool as I had once thought.
As my creative mind began processing, I sought out alternatives because my everyday face cleanser would be working overtime trying to remove makeup from my face solo.
My hunt for alternatives led me to a pack of Target brand baby wipes that I had just purchased to store in my car for random emergencies and spot cleaning. My face was still buried under makeup from the day so I took a wipe out and gave it a go. Well my good people, I can say that my final verdict was favorable in this case. I found that the wipe was the perfect solution for my diva-like episode. I did have to use 2 wipes (yikes!) to get my entire face clean to my liking. *Note – the amount of wipes you use will depend on your makeup coverage (light, medium, full) and coverage type (smudge proof, waterproof, etc.).
As always, I follow up with my normal face routine to get any debris left over that my wipe didn’t pick up. Abra-ca-dabra – my makeup is removed, pores unclogged, and fresh faced. I'm sure any brand of wipes will do the job!
