Cleansing water is an important part of my morning routine when I need to gently remove the acne spot treatments I applied the night before. I still use my favorite CeraVe cleanser afterwards but I always like to get rid of the dried pink sulfur spots first (no more chicken pox face to scare kids!). My current go-to cleansing water is ARITAUM's version (reviewed here) for it's efficacy, price and non-offensive ingredients/odor.
The others I've come across are also dependable but either cost too much (Dr. Jart Plus Dermaclear Micro Water is $32 yikes!) or smell too much (Etude House Real Art = grandma's perfume). I've considered picking up Garnier's Micellar Cleansing Water because it's super cheap but I'm wary of its potential acne-triggering hexylene glycol (a "2" on the CosDNA scale). That's why when I decided to buy a tissue/wipe version I went straight for ARITAUM's version, the Aloe No-Wash Cleansing Tissue.
I never really saw the need for cleansing tissues because if I'm going to clean my face I'm going to do it for real with actual washing (water + lathered product + motion). However, I've picked up Zumba classes lately and want a portable way to get rid of sweat before I get home for the real cleanse. I always go with a bare face (no make-up & light moisturizer only) so a cleansing water is definitely appropriate but who wants to haul a large bottle back and forth and also remember the cotton pads, too??
Enter cleansing tissues!
