Best Product To Help You Remove Your Makeup Without Damaging Your Skin

Have you ever thought of a product that would make you forget your makeup wipes, cleanser, toner and your face wash without giving you panda eyes? (I’m talking about what happens to your eyes when you remove your eyeliner and mascara ๐Ÿ˜› ) well this one doesn’t!

We all are well aware of the wonders of cleansing our skin in the best possible way. Who doesn’t love clear skin?! But when it comes to products that we use on a daily basis, I prefer those that are light on our pocket. Hey let’s face it, we can’t get high end products that we know we have to use at least twice a day if not less unless you are sitting on a gold mine because they do cost an arm and a leg if used frequently. I’m sorry but I feel this way. People like me who have 3 children think about all aspects before befriending anything and I know most of you can relate to it.

Coming back to the product that I have been using for a long time now and I love it. I don’t post about anything till I’m 100% sure about what I’m saying and this one is definitely worth a standing ovation for it works three ways. It cleanses, removes makeup and all impurities and refreshes and soothes skin. The best thing is that you don’t necessarily have to wash it off as it is super light and doesn’t feel sticky or uncomfortable on your skin. I’m talking about the worthy Miceller Water. Now you could use any brand you prefer but i’m completely glued to Garnier Micellar Water. It has to be one of the best that you can find comparing to high end and drugstore waters. Try it. You’ll know what I mean. I haven’t been using anything else at all as it covers all that I need to do. As they say it’s a lazy girl’s dream come true! ๐Ÿ˜›


What is Micellar Water?
Micellar water is made of tiny balls of oil molecules called micelles, which are suspended in soft water. The clever little micelles are made of surfactants, which act as magnet to attract dirt, makeup, and sebum, lifting impurities from the skin without stripping away natural oils like harsh chemicals and alcohol can. All you need to do is soak a cotton pad in micellar water and wipe away your makeup (even tough eye-makeup) and any other grime or oil that has built up โ€“ย no need to rinse because the formula draws out impurities without unbalancing your skin, and doesnโ€™t leave behind oil.


As a result, itโ€™s incredibly hydrating for your skin, so if your skin tends to be oily, you may even find you can skip moisturizing before bed which I do.

You can get a 125ml bottle for AED16 and a 400ml bottle for AED 44.99

Before this I was using cleansers, and makeup wipes to remove makeup. Wipes always left my skin with rashes or irritable skin so this has been a life saver in every way!

An Upcoming Event and No Time For Facial

Hi my angels! Hope all is good at your end. The heat is pretty intense here in UAE which of course you can’t really feel if you are indoors but once you step out, you realize the kind of damage your skin gets exposed to. Speaking of which, there is so much going on during summers, dinners, events, launch, etc etc. It’s not always possible to step out for a facial or any skin treatment for that matter, especially if you are a mom of three. One thing that really proves useful every single time is the DIY gram flour mask that you can apply while doing your regular chores or right before getting into the shower. Gram flour has a lot of benefits but it’s specially known for giving you a healthy glow. It is mainly used to cleanse and exfoliate the skin.
All you need is ingredients from your very own pantry and you are good to go.

Let’s start!

For Oily Skin

If you have oily and greasy skin, try this face pack for immediate results. Mix gram flour along with yogurt or raw milk and apply it on your face. Wash it off after 20 minutes. This pack also removes the dirt and makeup residues from your face.

To Remove Tan

Mix 4 teaspoons of gram flour, 1 teaspoon of lemon, 1 teaspoon of yogurt and a pinch of turmeric to form a smooth paste. Apply it all over your face and neck. Wash it off with cool water once it dries. It makes your skin smooth and radiant. Repeat this procedure daily for best results.

Skin Lightening

Gram flour, used along with lemon, is a very popular home remedy for skin lightening. Mix 4 teaspoons of gram flour, 1 teaspoon of raw milk and 1 teaspoon of lemon to form a smooth paste. Apply it all over your face and gently scrub in circular motions. Wash it off with cool water.

Body Scrub

Gram flour is beneficial for the skin as well. Indulge in a homemade body scrub.
Mix 3 teaspoons of gram flour, 1 teaspoon of grounded oats and 2 teaspoons of corn flour with milk. Apply the mixture on your body and gently scrub. This is an excellent body scrub which removes dead cells, excess sebum and dirt quite effectively. It gives you a clean and smooth skin.

Do try these as they are free from any harmful chemicals and the best part is that all you have to do is step into your kitchen and find the right ingredients. Anyway Eid is just around the corner, something which we all are looking forward to. Treat yourselves to these super amazing masks at home and feel the difference.
P.S. send me flowers once your skin glows ๐Ÿ™‚
