face wipes

Look – we do genuinely mean to have a shower every morning. And we absolutely know that we should exfoliate AND moisturise before applying a layer of fake tan.

Yup – our nails could be more manicured; feet less rough. No, a messy slept-in bun is rarely as striking as tumbling GHD curls.

But then we weigh up the prospect of an extra 30minutes in bed, or more time spent on the couch watching Strictly before we head out… and suddenly we’re willing and oh-so able to embrace our inner Lazy Girl.

Do we looked as preened and proper as a Kardashian-Jenner at the Met Ball? Well, no… but hey, we don’t look half bad either.

So here, in honour of those extra 30minutes in bed, SHEmazing! rounds up our top 10 Lazy Girl beauty habits that our fellow Lazy Girls will know ALL about. 


1) Dry shampoo is god: in fact, we reckon we're pretty much keeping Batiste afloat at this stage


2) A 'fancy' up-do or messy plait is merely a cunning ruse to get through another day without washing your hair


3) And when we do wash your hair… we never have time to actually dry it properly. Pony-tail or bun still wet at 6pm? Yup, that's us


4) To our total shame, we've found stray hairpins buried somewhere in our tresses DAYS after we've applied them


5) Thankfully, big brows are in – because we haven't shaped, plucked or HD'd them in MONTHS. Au natural ftw


6) Cleanse, tone and moisturise? Lolz; we're ALL about the facial wipes. For a really thorough clean, we'll even occasionally use two


7) Allegedly, lipstick requires a specialist brush for expert application – that AND you need liner too? Oh, we genuinely didn't know…


8) We do own an eyelash curler, but we have never once used it. Nor do we plan on starting any time soon


9) We are aware that contouring is a thing. We have never, however, contoured; tinted BB cream has works perfectly well thanks all the same


10) Sunglasses can be worn at all times, and in all weather, in lieu of actually putting on makeup




After a night out it's easy to grab a face wipe to take your make-up off before bed.

However, while every now and then it's ok to use cleansing wipes. Every. Single. Day. is not good, and here’s why:

Your face is not fully cleansed
Wipes don’t fully remove your make-up so you will end up going to bed with some foundation or mascara still on your face.

They’re drying
A lot of wipes contain alcohol which can be harsh on your skin and are particularly drying as they remove your skin’s natural oil.

Full of preservatives
If you have sensitive skin you should avoid using wipes too often as they can contain preservatives which will just irritate your face.

Under eye winkles
If you are using wipes to remove your eye make-up, you are putting yourself at risk of getting under eye wrinkles and damaging the delicate eye area. This is because they require you to rub your eyes quite vigorously to remove mascara.

Your moisturiser won’t work
As wipes won’t fully cleanse your face, anything you put on your skin – like moisturiser – after using them won’t be properly absorbed. This means they won’t be of benefit to your skin.
