Confessions of a skin sinner (+ Giveaway!)
Not to mention being a lovely sight to wake up next to the following morning. Panda eyes? Check. Red, irritated eyes from bits of makeup getting in? Check. Blotchy, dry skin? Check.
Oh yes, it's very glamorous.
To be completely honest, it's only very recently that I even formed a skin 'routine'. What can I say? I was late to the wearing makeup thing, and even later to the taking it off thing. Now, I'm a cleanse, tone and moisturise twice a day kinda girl - whether I've worn makeup (rare these days) or not - and I always regret it when I don't stick to the routine. The difference in my skin is incredible, especially seeing as I naturally have very dry skin.
When I was asked to trial Dove's new Foaming Make-up Remover, I was a little wary. I'm into very basic skincare, so if cleansing requires too many steps I consider it too hard. Serums? Different products for eyes? It just won't happen.
This product is pretty cool - it foams up and it left my skin feeling really refreshed and hydrated (a big ask of my skin). It's a one-step product (yay!), able to be used for eye makeup as well as the rest of the face, and it removed it all really easily - no scrubbing my eyes to get remnants of mascara or eyeliner off.
Having said that, it did sting my eyes so I'd recommend being pretty careful with it around that area.
All in all, it's good - and reasonably priced, which is also a big thing for me. I'll keep using it.
What's your biggest skin sin? The best comment will win a $25 Coles Myer voucher*!
* Giveaway ends at 5pm AEST on Sunday 10th July. Only open to Australian residents. Best comment will be judged by me.
