It’s been a long day and you’re exhausted. You’d want nothing more than to dive into bed and pass out. We’ve all been there, the “I’m too tired to remove my makeup” moment. You know you’ll regret it. Going to bed without thoroughly removing makeup can weaken skin condition and cause damage. Makeup removal is the most crucial part of your n-step skincare routine. Think of all the makeup products that you’ve put on your face layers by layers. Those finely-sized makeup particles can make your skin looks flawless, but at the same time, can harm your skin if they are not thoroughly removed as they easily get hidden deep into pores. That means, of every bottle and tube of skincare product in your cabinet, the one you should be most discerning about is your makeup remover. For Prestige’s Beauty and Wellness Awards, we were keen to see what gets you squeaky clean.
Evening Skincare Winner: The Makeup Remover
You might think your skin woes – dullness, roughness, blemishes and blackheads – are caused by wearing makeup. In fact, it’s not the makeup but the incomplete removal of makeup that wreaks havoc on our skin. That’s why we need a makeup remover that can remove long-lasting foundation and waterproof mascara as well as melt away oil, toxins and the particles that clog up our pores on a daily basis. FANCL MCO Mild Cleansing Oil is fortified with a unique Nano Cleansing Technology that penetrates deep into pores to remove stubborn makeup, with a velvety texture that prevents friction and rubbing of the skin. The ultra-gently formula also washes off completely, leaving skin feeling clean and refreshed, and is free of any preservatives, mineral oil, fragrance and artificial colourings.
Special Mention: FANCL Facial Washing Powder
Just like the FANCL slogan, less is more. Its Facial Washing Powder doesn’t contain any chemical foaming agents, including SLS or SLES, and still can easily form dense and rich foam that can penetrate deeply into small pores and effectively adheres to grime. It retains skin moisture and preps skin to fully absorb the nutrients from subsequent skincare products without leaving skin tight and dehydrated.
Our recommended beauty tip:
Use FANCL MCO Mild Cleansing Oil on a dry face, paying particular attention to the pores around the nose and chin. Follow with FANCL Facial Washing Powder for a complete double cleanse.
