If a 10-step skin-care routine doesn't quite fit into your schedule (or budget), then it's all about finding great multi-tasking skin-care products that let you keep your morning and nighttime skin-care routine simple, quick, and effective. Bonus points if it's a best-selling and affordable product like Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water (Buy It, $8, that has more than 12,000 five-star customer reviews.

This micellar water cleanses your skin and lifts any dirt, makeup residue, oil, or other pore-clogging debris off your skin without drying it out. (No need for double-cleansing!) While it’s safe for all skin types, the oil-free formula is even gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin and is non-comedogenic (in other words, it won’t clog pores and is great for acne-prone skin).

It’s super easy to use, too—just apply to a cotton ball or pad and swipe across your skin morning and night. The opthalmologist-tested product is also free of any sulfates, fragrances, alcohol, or parabens, so it won’t cause harm if you accidentally get some in your eyes while removing mascara.

If you’re still not convinced your skin-care routine can be pared down to just one cleansing product, let the shopper reviews speak for themselves—the top-rated cleanser has earned nearly 16,800 reviews and a 4.6-star rating, with many raving that it's the perfect non-drying makeup remover.

“It works great. I can’t believe how much makeup it removes!” said one reviewer. “Please never discontinue this. It isn’t drying in the least, my skin feel so soft.” One user even called it their “holy grail makeup remover” and another said, “I love this. It picks up all the makeup and grime those face wipes leave behind. It's a good price for the money and it works great. It leaves my face clean, fresh, and it does not irritate it which is a plus. Great for sensitive skin like mine.”

The best part? It’s just $8 for a 13.5-ounce bottle, so you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a high-quality, versatile skin-care product that actually works. (For more editor-approved picks: The Best Makeup Removers That Actually Work and Leave No Greasy Residue)
