I want to stop using wipes but don't know what to use instead. I've been recommended Face Halo The Modern Makeup Remover but what can I use week them? Ideally I'd like a product that removes make up (eye & foundation) & then moisturise afterwords.
Does such a product exist? Thanks!

Cleanser and a clean hot flannel work well!

'Cleanser and a clean hot flannel work well!'

Absolutely. Any cleanser that your skin likes, doesn't have to be expensive

Bin those wipes and never look back!

I use dd’s old muslins abs I have about 9 billion of them.

Thanks all. I'll get the stuff from Lush next time I go shopping & I'll get a cleanser asap.

My cheap and simple routine is Superdrug naturally radiantly hot cloth cleanser removed with a hot wet flannel then their glycolic acid then cheap moisturiser containing retinol. My skin is better than ever.

For those using cleanser, is this fine around your eyes? It feels a bit wrong to put the gloopier Liz Earle type on my eyes?

Aqueous cream and a flannel

And John Lewis sell cotton Flannels for 35p each, so it's easy to have lots of them.

Cut up old muslins and body shop camomile cleansing butter. It's amazing at removing make up.

'Superdrug naturally radiantly hot cloth cleanser'

That's a lovely one

OP, if you wear make up or SPF, you should double cleanse in the evening

Hope face halo - it is a miracle product that cleans purely with water and is a replacement for wipes x

DizzyBeeme Wed 13-Feb-19 21:46:57

I meant Google face halo!! Lol

I strongly recommend this OP. £2.89 at the moment in Superdrug. Kind to skin and a great smell.

I use cloths called 'It's magic' no need for anything apart from water. they are amazing.

I find those balms and cleansers are terrible for sensitive eyes. I can't find anything better than neutrogena makeup wipes for removing eye makeup - happy to try new something new though if anyone uses anything that doesnt irritate sensitive eyes. The bodyshop balm stung like f*ck.

Totty, I've used the microfiber face cloths. They are amazing at removing makeup but they feel too harsh on my face, leaving it tight and dry

I use the superdrug vitamin E face balm and cloth, but I use a proper eye makeup remover first. I wouldn't use the balm round my eyes if you paid me (sensitive wee flower here). I use either nivea or simple eye make up remover, whichever is on offer. I then moisturise with more of the vitamin e range, adding serum or the oil if my skin feels very tight.

MissMarplesKnitting Mon 18-Feb-19 12:26:14

Face halo and warm water. Magic!

I then just wash my face with Glossier milky gel wash as it's non foaming and very gentle.

TantricTwist Mon 18-Feb-19 13:49:19

Micellar water with cottonwool pads.

Garnier if you're not that sensitive skin wise and Bioderma if you want the best.

It should be able to take your eye make up off but if not just use Nivea double effects.

However if you want a complete change then buy a decent makeup remover that also removes stubborn eye make up in one then get Cliniques take the day off balm. A little goes a long way, use a flannel to wash it all off in a sink of tepid water.

Oil cleanser followed by a second cleanse with a cream cleanser. The oil just melts all eye makeup.

cannaethink Mon 18-Feb-19 18:21:43

I use the enjo eye pads for my face, they look similar to the face halo ones mentioned up thread.
I still use a cleanser with them though, just the Garnier natural rose sensitive one.

VeganCow Mon 18-Feb-19 19:03:06

I also use the Superdrug Radiant hot cloth cleanser, have done for years. Its often £3 down from £6

CrueltyFreeEmmy Mon 18-Feb-19 20:04:21

If you're avoiding wipes for environmental reasons then the face halo and other microfibre cloths aren't much better due to micro-plastics.

I'm a huge fan of a bamboo cloth and an oily or buttery cleanser to melt make-up. I love Ultrabland from Lush or the chamomile makeup remover in The Body Shop x
