How Well Do They Work? - Make Up Removers!

Part 1
I am forever buying new make up removers and face washes because nothing seems to work well with my skin and left me wondering how much of my make up actually gets removed when I'm using certain products. I decided to do a little experiment to see what is left on my face after I have thoroughly washed it. 
First up is Neutrogena's deep clean invigorating daily scrub. This is a light exfoliator which has a cooling sensation once washed off. I use this as part of my regular skincare routine every other day as to not dry my skin out. I found that there was little to no make up left on my face after using this, lightly massaging it in circular motions on the face allows the microbeads to penetrate the pores and remove a sufficient amount of make up leaving your skin feeling clean every time. Best one I have used.
I thought using a moisturising facial wash would be beneficial for my skin as it can often be quite dry however it seemed like this just sat on my skin and barely removed any of my make up. I had used this for quite a while, before thinking of doing this post, and had wondered why my skin never felt as clean or cleared up as much, now I know why. Sorry Simple moisturising facial wash you are going in the bin.. 
Another Simple product, another average working product. As an affordable dupe for any foam cleanser it works well for the price, foaming up nicely and cleansing well however there is still a little foundation residue left on my face a good cleanse. Compared to the moisturising cleanser this one works really well for the price and quality of the product. 

More comparison posts coming up soon!


  1. This is a really good idea! Might give this a try with all the face washes I have, find which ones are best and which to bin! Xx
