Which Is Better? Elemis Cleansing Oil or Makeup Wipes?


Regardless of your skin type, your makeup needs to come off before you go to bed.

The question is what kind of makeup remover should you be using? Here’s what you should know.

Cleansing oils are made from natural ingredients that won’t strip your skin. It’s used to both cleanse and remove makeup. Cleansing oils are also known as cleansing balms.

A benefit of cleansing oils is that the “good” oils on your face will dissolve any “bad” oils, allowing fresh, dewy, replenished skin. They are gentle and must be used on dry skin in order to break down any makeup. Some popular cleansing oils include BareMinerals Total Cleansing Oil and Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm.

Makeup wipes are usually more budget friendly and do just as good of a job at removing your makeup. They’re great for when you’re feeling lazy and just want to de-gunk your face. Makeup wipes are not substitutes for face wash, but they do help ease the process. There are many types of different cleansing cloths that can help target your skin problems. Some popular makeup wipes are the Neutrogena Make-up Remover and Kirkland Signature Wipes.
