1. Mascara Remover
There's no denying how a coat (or two) of mascara can open your eyes and brighten up your face. While we do love our long-lasting ones, it can be a chore having to remove it at the end of the day. Luckily, Ria spilled the tea on her holy grail find!
2. Cleansing Pads
An easy way to remove makeup is by swiping on cleansing pads. Smaller than the traditional makeup wipes, these pack the same potency albeit more compact. This particular one is said to "remove dirt, make-up, and excess oil from the skin" without drying the skin out.

Not one to take a chance on having traces of makeup left behind, Ria then uses a facial wash that unclogs pores and exfoliates the skin.
