UPDATED: Just like us, Whitney Port is sometimes too lazy to wash the makeup off her face
Tue, 9 August 2011 4:25PM
Even though a thorough nightly cleanse is one of the best things we can do for our skin (besides wearing sunscreen, of course), occasionally those late (boozy) nights get the better of us and the thought of flopping straight into bed with our face full of (smudged) makeup seems way too alluring.
But instead of being outrageously naughty, we reach for something we consider to be the perfect happy medium – a facial cleansing wipe, which we then sweep over our face. It may not cleanse as deep as a cream or gel cleanser, but heck, it stops us from looking like a panda come the AM, and allows us to slather on some moisturiser so our skin won’t look like complete shit in the morning.
Guess which celeb also does this, Primps? Go on, take a stab.
Fine, I’ll give you a hint, but only because the headline of this post clearly doesn’t give it away.
HINT NO. 1: She used to be on The Hills.
HINT NO. 2: She also used to be on The City.
HINT NO. 3: She looks like this:
Yes, I’m talking about Whitney Port, and sometimes she can’t be arsed washing her face at night either. How do I know this? Well, she recently told People magazine, that’s how. And guess which facial wipes are her fave? These bad boys right here:
Yes To Cucumbers Natural Glow Facial Towelettes, $7.95
Whit reckons they are ace at taking off her makeup quickly, and honestly, I couldn’t agree more. These kiddlets have saved me many times in the past, and their fresh, cucumber scent is absolutely amazing. They’re also kind to my sensitive skin, which I find hard to come by in a towelette.
So, maybe next you find yourself in the supermarket aisle before a big night, or if you just happen to find yourself wishing you were more like Whitney Port, maybe you should pick up a packet of these. I’m pretty sure your face is keen for you to do so. It positively hates sleeping with makeup. We’ve heard she hogs the quilt.
UPDATE: Guess what? Guess what? A wee mouse (all dressed up in a cute-to-boot suit) told me that this Aussie glamour loves these facial wipes, too:
OK, so I lied. About the mouse part, anyway. Our very own Abbie Cornish recently told Us Weekly that these are the bad boys she reaches for when she needs to cool down after a sweaty session at the gym. Smart one, Abs. These are the perfect product to have in your bag after a gym workout.
Do you use makeup wipes when you’re too lazy to cleanse properly?
Or do you use them all the time?
Have you used these Yes To Cucumbers ones before?
If a celebrity says a product is good, does it make you want to try it?
