Jess Glynne is one powerful woman Glossies! From her strong voice to her meaningful lyrics, she’s the embodiment of female empowerment. Last night though, she took it to a whole new level. Performing at the BRIT Awards, she removed her makeup with a cleanser live on stage in front of 4.5 million digital viewers.

The performance genuinely gave me chills, and other fans expressed similar reactions on Twitter:

This performance was really powerful and such a positive message to young girls!


@callumstweets also stated that ‘Jess Glynne taking her makeup off on stage whilst performing is SO EMPOWERING. Bravo. Go her’, while @manjabijak said that her performance was a ‘very powerful message teaching young women to love themselves as they are’.

She's such an inspiration!


If, like Jess, you decide that you ‘won’t wear makeup on Thursday, because who [you are] is enough’, I’ve compiled a list of the best all-in-one cleansers to help you wash off your makeup and leave you with a natural glow.

1. PIXI Makeup Melting Cleansing Cloths

These makeup wipes are the perfect travel companion for on-the-go use. They are pre-moistened to gently wipe away makeup effortlessly, even if it’s waterproof. Plus, they’re infused with calming chamomile and grape seed oil to remove impurities, rebalance the skin and leave you with a soft complexion.

2. Garnier Micellar Oil Infused Water

If you’re more of a micellar water and cotton pad kind of woman, I’d recommend the Garnier Micellar Oil Infused Water. Enriched with nourishing oils, it removes makeup and dirt without needing to scrub or rinse. It’s particularly effective if you’ve got dry skin, as it cleanses, hydrates and refreshes your complexion in a single step.

3. Bioderma Sensibio H20 Makeup Removing Solution

Alternatively, the Bioderma Sensibio H20 solution is really good for sensitive skin. Developed specifically for delicate complexions, this dermatological water eliminates impurities from the face and eye area while also soothing irritations. It also helps to strengthen the skin’s hydrolipidic film, the protective layer on your skin that shields it from bacteria. A clean, fresh and revitalised complexion awaits!

4. Magnitone London WipeOut! The Amazing MicroFibre Cleansing Cloth

These ultra-soft cloths are taking the cleansing game to a whole new level! All you need to do is wet one under warm water, glide it over your skin and it will remove makeup and impurities without needing any water cleanser or creamy makeup remover. Better yet, they’re reusable and machine washable which makes them good for the planet and even better for your budget!

5. Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser

If you’re looking to treat yourself a little (because let’s face it, you deserve it), then this creamy facial cleanser is worth the splurge. Infused with an invigorating blend of essential oils, it removes makeup and daily build-up to leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed. It’s most effective when paired with the antibacterial bamboo muslin cloth. Together, they remove dead skin cells and promote a bright and dewy complexion!
