Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes (P446) from Aveeno
Instead of packing your trusty micellar water (we don't recommend this because chances of spillage are high and you don't want to be carrying a whole pack of cotton), bring makeup remover wipes that can remove dirt, oil, and makeup (including eye makeup!) like this pack from Aveeno. If your skin reacts to change in weather temperature and needs something gentle to rebalance it, these wipes can do the trick!
