How I Remove My Makeup

I have never looked up the best way to remove makeup at the end of the day; over time I just figured out what worked best for me and what products I liked the most. 
I don't follow a strict skin routine which is something that I am working on changing as when I do put on a face mask or use my electronic facial brush, I notice a huge difference. That being said, I have made a small step towards doing that by introducing a proper routine for taking off my makeup. 
I used to just use a facial wipe which removed makeup well on the surface, but wasn't good enough to remove any that got into the pores etc, so I needed to switch things up. Now that I have managed to do so, I thought I would share it here on my blog. 
Firstly, I use one of my trusty Simple Micellar Cleansing Wipes to remove any visual makeup so that I don't have to use as much product as I would if I didn't have this step. 
These wipes are amazing. They are gentle on the skin whilst still tough on the makeup, which is exactly why I don't use any others. 
Just take one and gently wipe off your makeup in circular motions to avoid missing any. 
After that initial step, I take one of my large oval pads to apply my cleanser with. I like these pads as they are big and a lot easier to hold than normal round pads. 
The cleanser that I am using at the moment is the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gelee Milk. It is a light texture; a lot thinner than lotion but isn't runny at all which I like. I apply this with the cotton pad and gently wipe it over my face to remove any last bits of makeup that the wipe didn't get to. It leaves my face feeling so nourished and smooth as well which is a plus. 
I then do a second cleanse. The first one is mainly to remove the last bits of makeup so this one is to mainly cleanse the skin itself to help leave it refreshed and fully clean. The one that I am using for this is the B. Sparkling Water Cleanser. To be honest, I picked this up as I thought it sounded interesting, then I noticed that the product itself recommends people to use it as a second cleanser which is why I bought it. 
I apply this with my hands (making sure I wash them properly first), lightly massaging it into the skin - again in circular motions - until it is mostly absorbed. I then splash my face with warm water and gently pat it dry. 
Although this isn't really a step to help remove makeup, I do apply this afterwards just to help get rid of my dark circles since I don't have makeup on. 
This is the Vitamin C Brightening Eye Gel by Superdrug. I liked the sound of this as it is infused with Vitamin C which I thought would be more effective than a normal eye gel. So I apply this under my eyes in a circular motion and then just wait for my skin to absorb it. My eyes instantly feel refreshed and more awake so I will definitely be purchasing it again. 

So, that is the routine that I am currently following to remove my makeup. All of these products are from Superdrug (except the oval pads which are from Tesco), and they are currently on sale for:
Simple Micellar Wipes - £2.05
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cleanser - £3.89
B. Sparkling Water Cleanser - £3.45
Vitamin C Brightening Eye Gel - £4.99
