How I Remove My Make Up - Travelling

Hey ladies, i noticed there are new followers. Welcome and stay FANTABULOUS, will check and follow you back.. And thank you for following my blog, can't wait to read your thoughts.

Btw, i did a post about How I Remove My Make Up - Daily Basis and since i'm a lazy person :p i got several way to clean my face, this post is gonna about how i remove my make up when i'm travelling.

Usually, I packed a lot of things. Make up remover, organizer to keep my facial cotton clean (i prefer cotton to tissues) which is heavy. And currently i switch to easier way, make up remover in tissues. on budget situation Neutrogena had it, and lots of beauty guru used it and loved it not to mention there's several high end brand like MAC and so on *sigh*. But since i lived in Indonesia, and kinda hard to get it (unless you got someone buy it for u when they're going abroad - custom purchased ; or ordered it online- which took forever to arrived plus the shipping cost BLAH..) and i searched for easier and cheaper method. Beauty on Budget!!!

After read reviews and did some survey on local hypermarket, i finally made a decision to Mitu.
First Mitu only has finesse which has cucumber, aloe vera, and chammomile extract to purifies skin, it has 10 sheets. Second is SHIKADA, it's the sister of finesse and currently launched, ingredients is the same but extra sheets (30 sheets).

Ingredients (both are the same) 
Purified water, Glyserine, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Aloe Vera extract, Cucumber extract, Chammomile extract, Ethyl alcohol, DL panthenol, Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol, Methyl paraben, Ethyl paraben, Propyl paraben, Disodium EDTA.

It claims that :
  • gently cleanses
  • refreshes
  • removes make-up, even waterproof mascara 
For normal to oily skin.

Love :
Easy breezy, just take one towelette and i usually used one side for overall face, and the other side is for eye make up ( the picture is for swatches only) so it made you not wasting on several towelettes while cleansing.
Available Locally and CHEAP - i found mine at Carrefour, for IDR 3.345 / approx $4 approx. $ 0.39 (finesse) and IDR 8.765 / approx. $9 approx. $1.04 (SHIKADA)
( thank you Mrs. Reza Boer for the correction *smooch* )
Not contain oily material (not like other cleansing wipes, i prefer it this way)
Compact size, you can simply put it inside your clutch bag :D

Hate :
The flip is a bit annoying, if you don't close it well it may drying your towelettes faster than you thought.
After used, yes i feel refresh but it STINGS a bit, which is not happening if i used my ALMAY eye makeup remover.
Too perfumey for my taste, but nothing offensive tho'
Have to work extra hard to remove my Maybelline waterproof mascara, but other mascara is doing just fine.

Repurchase :
Oh so YES darling :D

Hope you find this post informative and helpful. Looking forward to exchange tips from you ladies, on how you remove your make ups while travelling.
