Cleansing creams

The next option is a cleansing cream. Creams are greasy and shouldn’t be left on the skin. They’re great for removing stubborn make-up, which is why they’re popular with actors whose faces are often caked in make-up for stage or the cameras.

You usually wipe the cream onto your skin, then wipe it off with a cotton wool pad. You can see the dirt you’ve removed on the pad.

The best-known cleansing cream is Ponds Cold Cream, which is enjoying something of a revival as people look for simpler and inexpensive formulations.
