So let’s break it down: what exactly does the 3-in-One Wash Away do? As a cleanser and toner, 3-in-One Wash Away is super simple to use– just grab a cotton round and apply a little squirt or two and then sweep across your face and neck. No need to rinse, that’s it!
One of the reasons I love using this as my cleanser in the mornings is that I always seem to be running late, and I know I’d just end up skipping this part of my morning routine if I had to do the full water/washcloth routine like I do in the evenings. It’s seriously such a lifesaver when I know I’m running short on time to be able to simply sweep my cleanser across my face on a little cotton round without needing to rinse or even apply toner– it takes maybe 30 seconds and then I know I can apply my daily SPF and run out the door without sacrificing this part of my morning skincare routine!
For those of you who have eyelash extensions and can’t use oil based product on your eyes, this is a totally safe makeup remover option for you! The non-oily, refreshing formula is also perfect for those of us who simply prefer the feeling on our faces, as well! I know I personally don’t tend to enjoy the overly oily feeling on a daily basis of some eye makeup removers I have used in the past, and luckily they are simply unnecessary most days since 3-in-One Wash Away works effectively in pretty much any situation apart from waterproof mascara!
You might be wondering how exactly just one product can pull off all of this awesomeness, and the answer is it uses micellar technology!
Basically, tiny molecules called “micelles” suspended in water act as a magnet to dirt, oil, and makeup from your face while leaving it soothed, soft, and moisturized all in one go. As you might have guessed from the name, this method of cleansing originally comes from France where it was developed due to the poor quality tap water that was generally available. No one really wanted to rinse their face with the tap water… enter micellar cleansing– you don’t have to rinse after cleansing at all!
This is still a widely used cleansing method that is popular all across France– and after giving it a try I think you’ll see why! It’s convenient, effective, and so quick and easy… and really, who could ask for more?!

Lisa's Notes: If you are a minimalist when it comes to skincare, or you have those minimalist times (don't we all?) be sure to really saturate the cotton pad with the product in order to get a good cleansing in, especially when removing makeup at night.
