The Proper Way To Cleanse Your Skin

I’m not going to lie, there are always those days throughout the month where the last thing on your mind before you go to sleep is to conduct a full on facial cleanse and pamper. While I take my skincare extremely seriously and rarely ever do this for fear of a breakout (I have super oily/acne prone skin), I always have a few backup products on hand for those nights where I just can’t be bothered. I’ve tried SO MANY different facial wipes over the years and generally have disliked all of them. Either because they left a tacky consistency on my skin or because they didn’t properly cleanse my skin and there was a bunch of makeup residue left over. Maintaining a proper cleansing routine for those lazy days (either during travel or fighting jet lag) just got that much easier thanks to Kleenex’s new Facial Cleansing line. I’ve tried each of their products from the range and I have to say hands down their eye makeup remover pads and facial wipes are the most durable and moisturizing I’ve yet to try! Usually the makeup remover wipes I pick up from the drugstore dry out within two weeks or less, either because the packaging didn’t hold in the moisture or the product itself wasn’t penetrated with enough liquid to begin with. That is not the case with these as they are almost as thick as a kitchen paper towel! I know that’s a strange comparison, but that’s exactly what my fiancé Doug said when I asked him to feel the thickness. They are incredibly durable and that helps lock in the moisture to be able to wipe away all the built up residue and makeup throughout the day. Their eye makeup remover pads were extremely penetrated with moisture so with just one swipe most of your eye makeup is gone! That includes eyelash glue and all! Not to mention, the packaging they come in is bulletproof! What I mean by that is that they are just as strong as Tupperware and I’m trying to find another use for the boxes after I’m done with the product;) (although you can buy refill cartridges).

I also LOVE their exfoliating cushions! If you have oily skin and are constantly fighting back large pores and redness, then you’ll already know that exfoliating is a MUST at least once a week. I’m always on the hunt to find the best facial sponge (I usually use these) because unlike washcloths, they really dig deep into the surface of your skin and unclog pores. When I tried the Kleenex exfoliating cushions I was in awe! First off, they are much more practical for travel since they are disposable (you don’t have to keep a wet sponge wrapped up in a bag in your suitcase) and they are dual sided. It has multi-layered fabrics and a gentle cleanser that exfoliates and polishes your skin.

I’ve also been using their cotton soft pads that are perfect for taking off nail polish! All you need is one pad soaked in nail polish remover for each hand and it gets rid of all the polish on your fingers without having to go through 5-8 cotton balls.
