When it comes to my meticulous skincare routine, my friend once joked that it would take being unconscious to make me skip my nightly steps. And it's totally true. I have never (and will never) go to bed with a stitch of make-up on, and always make sure to remove my make-up, cleanse, and at least moisturize before bed. Let's be real though; this gets exhausting. There are so many times after a long day of running around the city when I get home late and the last thing I want to do is a multi-step process before I fall onto my bed and pass out. But, as I've never been enamored by make-up removing wipes before, I just haven't had those go-to products that allow me to skip steps...until now.
In an attempt to condense my routine for those days when I'm simply too busy, I've been trying out the Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths. These specially textured cloths have the cleansing power of a scrub, toner, mask and cleanser to gently exfoliate skin, remove dirt, oil and makeup. The cleanser washes away dirt and make-up while the toner tones skin. The mask hydrates with essential Olay conditioners and the scrub exfoliates to smooth skin's surface. What I really like about them is that unlike a traditional make-up remover wipe, they lather up really well with just a bit of water, so I don't have to rub and tug to get my make-up off. And though I typically avoid products with too much lather, these are thankfully soap free and feature effective Olay conditioners, meaning they don't dry out my sensitive skin.
To use, simply wet the cloths, rub to lather, cleanse, rinse, and toss. The 4-in-1 formula allows for a whole clean, and they take off my make-up easily, meaning I don't need to double cleanse!
They also are totally perfect for my lazy approach to make-up and love of the current no-make-up trend. The cloths are pretty much step 1 to achieving that look, and they've really encouraged me to go make-up free more often. Instead, I mostly wear SPF during the day, and at night, I simply use the 4-in-1 cloths to remove my sunscreen and follow them up with a little rosewater spritz and my nightly moisturizer. Though I will always be a skincare fanatic who loves my over-the-top routines, it's really nice having an option for those days when I'm on-the-go and too busy for my usual multi-step process that is simple, effective, and gets the job done without stripping my skin.
