You know those no rinse face cleansing cloths you can buy? I'm wondering if anyone has a recipe for a similar type of face wash. Or if not no rinse, something that'll come off easy with just a wet washcloth. I want something for the days I wear makeup but don't take a shower at night and I'm like a little kid if I try to wash my face in the sink, huge flooded mess everywhere. I don't like using those store bought face cleansing cloths cuz they're wasteful and the ingredients in the cleanser usually don't agree with my skin.

Thanks in advance for any help!

hmmm, good question!  My immediate thought is to soak your cloths in witch hazel with maybe some lavender essential oil and/or tea tree oil, but that's basically like an astringent so it might be harsher than what you're looking for?

I'm sorry, but the flooding the sink thing made me crack up! I don't understand!

Yeah I really dont know how I do it, but everytime I try to wash my face in the sink I just end up with huge puddles of water all over the place, its pretty funny.

I've never used witch hazel before so I don't know if it'll be too harsh for my skin, but I'll give it a shot. I just wanna make sure I get all my makeup off before bed so I don't break out, ya know.

You should definitely try the oil cleanse method. Do some googling... it's out there all over the place. I started doing it maybe 6 months ago now, and I went from this

to this

in 4 months. Now, a couple more months later, I am almost completely clear all the time. I still break out around my period, but believe you me NOTHING like what it used to be. The first picture isn't even the worst of it, nor does the lighting show all the damage. And the second picture is on a bad day when I WAS on my period, and also before I cut out some food sensitivities that were causing the redness. I have cystic acne plus rosacea... seemingly impossible to fix even with pharmaceuticals.

Even if you have great skin with no acne issues, OCM is great... And it doesn't require any flooding of the sink haha!!

whoever i was
I'm not that person now
but what i wish i was
I'm still so far away from

Thanks! That looks like its worked great for you. My face usually looks a little worse than your before picture so I'm excited to see how this works for me. Sound nice and relaxing too, and yay for not having to flood the sink lol.
