Eve Lom Muslin Cloths, $35, Sephora
Best used in conjunction with facial cleansers for pore-deep cleansing, these muslin cloths exfoliate and purify the skin for a refreshed feel. They are gentle on the skin, yet powerful enough to eradicate any blemish-causing impurities, dirt, oil, dead skin cells, leftover makeup, and cleanser residue. This leaves the skin with a clean slate for better absorption of skincare products that follow. Makeup Eraser The Original MakeUp Eraser in Pink, $30, Sephora
The Makeup Eraser is a double-sided and dual-purpose cloth. One side features short fibres that are meant to effectively remove makeup in gentle, circular motions. Whereas the flip side that’s made with longer fibres is made to exfoliate dead skin. This machine-washable cloth claims to be able to last for up to three to five years and up to one thousand washes. Face Halo Pro, US$22 (S$30)
Endorsed by beauty YouTuber Chloe Morello, the Face Halo instantly and conveniently removes makeup for a deep yet gentle exfoliation – with just the use of water. The chic black fibres always remain fresh-looking, even after removing heavy or brightly-coloured makeup. Each Face Halo replaces up to 500 single-use makeup wipes. Origins Original Skin™ Cleansing Makeup Removing Jelly, $41
Starting out as an emollient jelly, this cleansing jelly eventually transforms into a milky emulsion that dissolves dirt, impurities, excess oil, and all other traces of eye plus face makeup. Canadian willowherb and pink rock rose help to boost the dewiness of the skin as the formula rinses off to reveal supple skin that hasn’t been stripped of its natural oils. Drunk Elephant Slaai™ Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser, $50, Sephora
This Drunk Elephant melting butter cleanser is a two-part routine. On its own, the cleansing balm is made to melt away all existing traces of dirt, makeup, and sunscreen from the skin. It’s developed with clean, antioxidant-rich fruit extracts and oils that aid in soothing, together with a nourishing African oil blend of marula, baobab, Kalahari melon, mongongo, and Ximena. And for the days where you need an extra “oomph” in the exfoliation aspect, incorporate the bamboo booster. Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleansing Towelettes, $18, Sephora
No, these are not the devil. You do not need to shun them because they are biodegradable ones that are FSC-certified. Each towelette is infused with rice extract to moisturise and aloe to soothe. They remove makeup in one swipe while toning the skin simultaneously.
