Most of these baby wipes or skincare wipes , leave a residue of sunscreen , fairness product or glycerin (moisturising ones ) on the skin and that can block the pores of APST 2 and especially 3 type skin. If you wipe off the makeup and then thoroughly remove the residue from the wipe with a face wash like the Kaya soothing cleansing gel as Acnemantra guru suggested , then it shouldnt cause any problems. Most often than not these wipes contain silicon oil or some form of silicone which you might be allergic to , and it might cause imflammation and redness or block your pores. Not all silicones are core clogging though , but you should steer clear of them if your skin breaks out too easily.

You can try these wipes if you can order them (they arent available yet in india ) Acnefree wipes , they have salicylic acid in them , which can keep your pores unclogged on a hot summers day (for the face NOT the eye area) .

Or you can try a natural witch hazel toner to clear off oiliness , and Johnson`s baby oil or coldpressed soulflower oils (jojoba ) to remove eye makeup with cotton and then wash up with a face wash that works for you. Check out the Double Cleansing post for more information.


Thanks keepcalmandcureacne, you are a gem!


I have not been too happy using Johnsons baby oil for sunscreen removal. Even though I wash off the oil completely somehow it still seems iffy. Intending to move to jojoba or grapeseed oil- which one do you think is a better option ?


i guess jojoba is better option..heard some good points about it..
also have seen acne products containing jojoba oil..would it be a wrong to wash face 2 times continuously?
