Why: When you were in your teens and 20s, it was totally acceptable — and even celebrated! — to take off your makeup with drugstore wipes, devour a slice of pizza, and pass out still a little tipsy. Nowadays, you need to stop cold at two cocktails (because a slice of pizza isn't going to hold off your hangover) and do a more thorough face-washing routine. Oil cleansers are the lazy-girl choice for 30-somethings. They take everything — even the tackiest mascara — off in one solid wash and leave your skin a bit dewy if you're too exhausted for moisturizer.
Try: Shu Uemura Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil ($90) is my go-to. It contains eight botanical oils sought out from Chinese medicines and leaves me glowing like I just finished cheerleading at the high-school pep rally. Seriously.
