I always take off my makeup before going to bed (yes, even after a big night out!) however, I totally understand how sometimes it is the last thing you want to do. If you have these nights, then I would definitely say to invest in some face wipes as they are a very quick way to, at least, take most of the makeup off before you go to sleep.
My favourite is the Simple Clear Skin Oil Balancing Cleansing Wipes.
My routine involves taking off my eye makeup, then using a face wipe to just take off the majority of my foundation. I don’t rub my skin but just gently wipe it. I then take the remainder off with an oil-free face wash. I have found in the past that if you wear very long lasting foundation, like I do, just using a face wash to remove the foundation can take at least 3 washes! This extra step of getting the top layer off with a wipe can speed up the whole process and you can be sure that your face is squeaky clean!
