This is an obvious beauty hack, just something that perhaps not a lot of people do. Makeup wipes as you know are terribly convenient when you want to remove The Gunk off your face after a tiring day. However, they can be quite expensive to use if you take at least three pulls off the packet per cleansing. There are brands like Nivea with excellent wipes that are only P140 per pack - still, it's just less wasteful if you know how to maximize the product.
I adore the Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes not just for the price though. Each wipe is fairly thick so you can use the other side without it being too dirty after the first pass. It's also very soft and loaded with enough fluid so that I don't need to rub too hard. Here's how I use it!
Fold the wipe in half, and then half again. Use each quarter of the wipe as a new surface - and that's really all there is to it! The sequence I follow is also straightforward. I use the first quarter of the wipe to remove as much as I can of my foundation and lipstick. The second quarter I use to remove my eye makeup. Then, I flip the wipe to the clean side, and use one quarter to take another pass at my foundation. The last quarter of the wipe is what I use to remove any traces of eye makeup remaining.
It's important not to drag the side of the wipe where your eye makeup is all over your face to avoid breakouts, or any negative reactions for that matter. That's why I use a separate side each for my eye and face makeup.
One Nivea wipe is perfect for removing all of the product on my face without using any additional micellar water. Of course, if I'm wearing waterproof mascara, I add an oil-based makeup remover to be able to break the formula down.
Hope this helps! ^_^ Have you tried the Nivea Cleansing Wipes yet? How's it been so far?
