The beauty roadtest
By Weekend’s All Ages model Trese-San Wong, 37
I told myself in my 20s, always take off your makeup before bed, no matter what state you’re in. I don’t wear a lot, anyway: the most I’ll put on is smoky eyes or a black eyeliner tick across the lids, but to this day I’ll still always take it off, no matter how late.
I’m not getting any younger, so I have to look after myself as much as possible. I usually use a makeup remover that contains green tea extract. A facialist used it on me once and my skin fell in love with it, so I use that every night before bed, followed by a spray of rosewater and some Dr Jackson Oil.
My skin is pretty sensitive, so
I was interested to see whether any of the new wave of makeup removers could lure me away from my current brand. I loved the bottle design of Charlotte Tilbury’s Take It All Off Remover (£24, ch charlottetilbury.com); the p pump action makes it really easy to use, and the scent was great, too.
MacM Gently Off Remover (£16.50, m maccosmetics.co.uk) was also go good, though I did have to use two sa saturated cotton-wool pads to get al all my makeup off.
The L’Oréal Paris Micellar Water re remover (£5.99, superdrug.com), m meanwhile, was super-simple and ea easy to pour on to cotton pads. Ev Everything came off easily; it didn’t sti sting my eyes, and my skin felt great aft after, with no oily residue.
But my favourite has to be the
Sim Simple Kind To Eyes Remover
(£3 (£3.80, boots.com). It was incredibly ge gentle on my sensitive skin and wi wiped off all my makeup. It’s a great pri price, too.
