Any lazy girl can relate to this scenario: After a long day out, all you want to do is hug your pillow to sleep – with or without makeup on your face. But we all know that sleeping with the gunk is not good for your skin and can potentially cause a breakout.
If you don’t feel like dealing with the potential spillage of a liquid-based makeup remover such as cleansing oil or water (because you’re too sleepy to even keep your eyes open), these makeup wipes make for great alternatives to make sure you hit the sack with clean skin. Plus, these cleansing wipes super convenient to bring along when you’re travelling!
