Confessional of the day: I love doing my makeup (although I haven't quite mastered the art and often resort to using my fingers in lieu of actual tools and brushes). But if you were to see me on the daily, you'd notice that I usually don't wear anything on my face apart from sunscreen, brows, and blush if I'm feeling fancy. A few years ago, I was the complete opposite, and I had multiple foundations, concealers, color correctors, bronzer,s mascaras, and more on constant rotation. Unfortunately, over the years, my skin has gotten more and more sensitive to makeup, specifically makeup that had particularly long staying power. Let me explain: I would put on makeup for the day, and my skin would be fine. But then, I wake up the next day to find my face covered in blemishes that I would then try to cover up with foundation and concealer, which would just start the cycle over again.

As it turns out, it was because my makeup wasn't fully washing off even though I would scrub-a-dub-dub away with both makeup wipes and cleanser. Without fail, I would wake up the next morning to find little mascara clumps or traces of foundation on my toner pads, and I eventually gave up on trying to find a cleanser that would get the job done and instead cut down on my makeup routine, if only to protect my vulnerable skin. I thought all hope was lost for my beloved glam products, until I recently came across Fig.1. The brand, which aims todeliver high-quality, derm-developed products that are affordable, recently launched its Micellar Oil Cleansing Wipes. In short, these wipes combine the bestselling Micellar Oil Cleanser formula with zero-waste wipes that can be dissolved in water after use. How cool is that?! Not only are these wipes eco-friendly, they're also super nourishing.

Fig.1 Micellar Oil Cleansing Wipes

These Micellar Oil Cleansing Wipes are formulated with the brand's fan-fave Micellar Oil Cleanser. and they work to gently remove makeup, buildup, and dirt from your face to reveal soft, glowingly clean skin underneath. The formula includes skin-loving ingredients like grapeseed oil and squalane, so your face stays hydrated and soothed from start to finish. What makes these wipes extra cool, though, is the fact that they can be dissolved in water after use, leaving zero waste.

I used these wipes with a rare full face of makeup ('twas after a Saturday night out, and all I wanted to do was the bare minimum of my lengthy skincare routine). I went into the process fully expecting to have to follow up with my regular makeup removing balm and oil cleanser, but to my surprise, the wipes took away all noticeable traces of my makeup. After wiping every part of my face, I used my hands to rub the formula into my skin for a deeper cleanse, and then washed it off with water. Unlike regular makeup removing cleanses that clean your skin but leave you feeling stripped and dry, my face felt like it was glowing. Not only that, I woke up the next day to find that my skin was feeling softer and smoother, as if I had put on a sheet mask the night before (I had not, because like I said, bare minimum). And it's not just me: my fellow shopping editors at E! have tried out these wipes, too, and our consensus is that we adore these wipes and what they've done for our skin.
