The beauty road­test

The Guardian - Weekend - - Beauty - Makeup re­movers

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 char­lot­tetil­; the p pump ac­tion makes it re­ally easy to use, and the scent was great, too.

MacM Gen­tly Off Re­mover (£16.50, m mac­cos­met­ 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, su­per­, 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, It was in­cred­i­bly ge gen­tle on my sen­si­tive skin and wi wiped off all my makeup. It’s a great pri price, too.
