Just that, I wear makeup most days but hardly ever cleanse it off, I do moisturise before reapplying in the morning.
Im told I’ve great skin with few wrinkles for my mid 50s,
any one else willing to admit to a slovenly life.

I'm the same. Sometimes Im really good in the evening, proper cleanse and mosturise, but too often I'm a slob and don't wash it off. Always have a good scrub, tone moisturise, prime etc in the morning though

Do your pillows not get really dirty every night?

Me! I rarely wash makeup off at night as I’m a lazy sloth and I just want to get into bed. I have good skin and never get spots.

So you never wash your face?????? You just moisturise and reapply every day? Oh no, I can't cope

I must admit I’ve fallen into bad habits recently but in my defence I’m wearing a CC cream atm rather than a thick foundation. I hate it though and it plays on my mind that I haven’t done it Blush

Does your reapplication go on ok? I'm thinking it's just light makeup as opposed to eyeshadow, powder, etc etc

I honestly couldn't bear to not cleanse off my makeup at night.

Since I started taking my make up off at night I've had spots. Never used to before.

About the pillows, I love crisp white Egyptian cotton sheets and pillows and surprisingly they are not stained!! That even shocks me now it’s been mentioned.

Me 😬

Cleanser etc in the morning. Pretty sure it's all fallen off by bedtime anyway. I do remove my eye makeup but hate taking off my face makeup unless in the shower and I shower in the morning.

I presume you sometimes bathe or have a shower, so in a sense you sometimes DO wash it off. Confused

It's giving me a rash just thinking about not taking mine off tbh OP. Grin

I am horrified as I would never go to bed with makeup on, but I'm equal measure I also totally love that you're completely disproving the theory that all our faces will disintegrate if we don't double cleanse. We are well trained by the beauty industry aren't we!

The fact your pillows are clean in the morning is worthy of a scientific study, my brain can't compute.

I don't wear make up, nor do I use any creams and my skin is good.

Yuk even at my laziest I'd run a face wipe over my face, rinse with water and moisturiser (don't use face wipes any more for environmental reasons). Presumably you at least wash your face in the morning? Otherwise it's less slovenly, more clatty.

Yuk. That just about sums it up really.

I wash my face every morning in the shower and then put makeup on. I don't wash it again until the next morning.

I had a really strict face routine before I had kids and always had really oily and spotty skin, no matter what cleansing products I used.

Since I've left my foundation on overnight I no longer have oily skin or spots, it's a bit weird but saves me time and energy I don't have

I usually manage to take my makeup off, but on the nights when I'm too exhausted to do my routine, my skin always looks better the next day. Why???

Presumably you are washing your face in the shower etc so it is being cleaned at some point?

More power to you, I can't stand the feeling of it on my face by early evening, let alone bedtime!

Oh wow, thinking about this makes me sad.

I love cleansing my face at night. It feels so nice and it makes me happy. It’s like it unlocks that “and now you are done for the day” feeling 😍

I couldn't do that tbh. It would really irritate my skin.

Don't see the point moisturising over makeup - it'll just trap dirt in.

Me too, nearly 60 and I have great skin I do have a monthly facial and I cleanse, tone/clarify and moisturise in the mornings. I usually take mascara off with ponds cold cream but rarely wash my face at night. I use serums on my chest as they are too rich for my face and have no wrinkles there at all. Personally I think it's down to regular yoga I do 20 to 30 minutes most days.

I wash face in the morning, very rarely at night. Always done that. I don't wear much make-up though.

I couldn't do it, wouldn't be able to relax until make up off and clean skin and again in the morning I'd still clean the natural oil from my skin before moisturising.

Me too. I wash it in the morning.

I have good skin.

Saying that on the rare occasions when I have got into the habit of taking it off at night in have excellent skin.
