Hitting the sack with full-on makeup is always a big NO, but sometimes a wrapped-up busy schedule can make you feel totally worn out that you might not even be up for the complete CTM skincare routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising. On those exhaustive days, a simple moisturised tissue can literally be your 'knight in shining armour'.

Moreover sometimes even while on the go, you might have felt the need to take a break and wash the face, but the unavailability of water prevented you from doing so. Although a hydrated tissue might not provide the dramatic effect of splashing face with water, the instant gratification provided by a facial wipe is unparalleled.
