Trilogy Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm (available from John Lewis, £16.40, 80ml)


Each night you sleep in your makeup, your pores become clogged, as makeup hold onto dirt, oil and dead skin cells leading to the development of bacteria. Eventually this can cause spots and acne. Trilogy Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm melts on contact with warm skin, massaging easily onto the face and dissolving away every trace of make-up, along with any impurities and the remains of the day. Then you just need to wipe it off with a warm cloth and you’re ready to get tucked into your sleeping bag!
