I’m talking about the Nima Mitt ladies!!
I dread taking off my make up in the evenings. I’m sure I’m not the only one. The only reason I don’t look forward to it is because I hate my skin feeling greasy and oily after cleansers and they all seem to sting my eyes, even the most gentle ones. And washing my face over the sink only ends up with water on the floor, my hair and sleeves haha!
The Nima Mitt from makeup artist Niamh Martin the creator of Nima Brushes (another Irish lady in business whooo!) has changed that and I don’t dread the task of removing my makeup with this nifty little mitt! It’s an open glove that you just slip your hand into. There are tiny micro fibres (smaller than a human hair) tightly woven together and that’s what breaks down the make up so easily.
To be honest I was really sceptical when I first got this. I thought no way is this going to take off all my foundation and eye makeup with just water. Even if it does, I thought, it will drag my skin and I’ll be left red and blotchy.
Eventually I gave it a go and I was REALLY surprised. It took off all my foundation, mascara, eyeliner, the lot, all with no dragging of my skin and no redness afterwards. Isn’t that amazing?!? Just water and this mitt did that! My skin also felt smooth as one of the other advantages of this mitt is that it gently exfoliates skin. This is such a wonder product. I’ve really fallen in love with this. For any busy mum/woman it’s so handy…..just wet the mitt give it a little squeeze, go around your face and eyes in small circles and ta-da now make up free, exfoliated and ready for your moisturizer!
Tell me, have you tried this before or a similar eco-friendly, no fuss cleanser?
