I’ve been meaning to publish this post for quite a while now and as always, something or the other creeps up and the blog gets sidelined!! Being a mom, loads of bits and bobs need to get done, like, yesterday!
Finally got some time off to write this post. We’re taking about some winter TLC for your skin. Nothing and I mean nothing in skincare starts without a clean face.
There was (I still believe that it still is) a thumb rule of CTM for skincare.
- C – Cleanse
- T – Tone
- M- Moisturize
This is like your holy grail for fabulous skin. 7 days of consistent CTM will show you some fab results. You need to work hard for results to show. No slacking on the routine!
Lets start with part 1 of the cleansing routine, ‘The Wipes’!
When we talk about cleansing, there are a number of products that a lot of us prefer. I prefer the easier way out, which purely means that I use makeup wipes to get rid of the impurities of the day & then wash my face for any left overs. This dual cleansing always works for me. I feel a sense of accomplishment when I cleanse my face this way.
I’ve tried too many brands of wipes to list them all in this post, but here are a few which stood out from the rest! My Top 4 all time favourite wipes!!!
Sephora Express Cleansing Wipes
These are lifesavers! Why? They have an active ingredient called Salicylic acid, Salicylic acid is one of acne’s biggest enemies. You grab for a product with it the second you see a zit invading your face. You never know what could tick off the formation of a zit so these Sephora wipes are something that I always have with me. Makeup removal is flawless and quick, they smell good and the best part is the Salicylic acid which helps preventing acne.

Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic Facial Wipes
These wipes from Neal’s Yard Remedies feel super soft on the skin. they are made of 100% biodegradable organic cotton. These are very gentle on the skin and smell great. The ingredients are awesome for the skin. White Tea is a great Antioxidant. Antioxidants are known to prevent or delay several types of cell damage. Buying a product with this ingredient can only be good for your skin.

Johnson’s Facial Cleansing Wipes
These are one of the best Make Up Cleansing Wipes that I’ve come across! This is one of the 2 brands that I stock up on. It takes one single sheet of wipe to clear layers of makeup! This includes your water proof mascara as well! This pack is something that you will always find in my bag! Love these!

I can’t stop raving about these awesomely, heavenly, gorgeous wipes! They smell oh so amaaaazzziiing! Again, just one wipe & the heavy makeup and grime is off!! The aftereffect is what I love the most! My skin feels super soft to touch, keeps smelling great for a very long time and feels super hydrated! I swear by these!
