Drugstore Find: Neutrogena eye makeup remover lotion

I was using the Neutrogena eye pads but one day–the horror incident happened. I bought mine and someone had ALREADY TORN MY protection lid inside. It was weird not to mention very violating I had to debate what I’d do with the item and I was like you know what–i’ll use it to wipe off the makeup I put on my hands when I’m done with everything.  Then it got me thinking would I want something very personal like that or other eye makeup removers with no protection seal?NO. Even worse they’re kinda pricey and hard to find and who knows if they stole some from there or touched the upper pad so I tossed the first one on top.

Here are my thoughts on the eye makeup remover lotion

pros:

-no strong scent just a hint of something light or fresh

-very creamy and easy to blend directly on eye or onto cotton pad

-gentle and takes off a lot of my kajal makeup too

-the easy tube and flip top lid making it easy and sanitary

-says there’s aloe, glycerin and cucumber which I like

 

cons:

none I can think of

I rate this product a 10/10

Gathering Thoughts. I forget.

So here’s two more Drugstore Finds which I’m just going to label rather than title it that while I remember. I wasn’t sure if I wrote about the product here but L’oreal hydrafresh toner. I’m using that right now from time to time. Its alcohol free and it smells like heaven blessed it. Its got salicylic acid in it so if you feel a tad lazy and you don’t want to exfoliate, this toner may work for you. I bought it for about 7bucks and its 8.5 oz. It says you can use it day and night and I ended up purchasing this over the Neutrogena toner.

As for Neutrogena, I had this flashback of when I was younger and owned a tube of the Norwegian formula hand cream. Not only was I very pleased with the moisturizing element of the product, it always smelled nice. Not overpowering or strong in a bad way. I must say just about every product Neutrogena I’ve bought smells like a dream. I bought a tube at Walmart for under 4 bucks. I couldn’t believe it. I have officially decided to give up my $12+ L’occitane hand cream because its not as thick as Neutrogena.  the hand cream is now a staple of mine!

Neutrogena extra gentle eye makeup remover pads

My mom is now a new convert to Neutrogena and she tells me there is an eye makeup removing pad out now I was all ears. I have the hooded lid issue and sometimes when I try to look good I’ll do a smoky or winged liner look and it takes something heavy duty that doesn’t come off. My choice of eyeliner being waterproof or something kajal(which is another drugstore find I plan to write about here next)

She bought the round jar last week and its been such a blessing. I was a big fan of the Clinique take the day off eye makeup remover but the price was steadily going up and it was hard on my eyes when i’d accidentally drip some into the corners of my eyes. So this mess proof not too thin reversible eye makeup remover for sensitive skin was exactly what I was searching for. The pads are thicker than most cotton pads and lets say you got most of your eye makeup off but need more off flip the pad over and wipe the remainder on the opposite side

Changing Up Products.

In the past month or so, I had realized I was spending way too much money on makeup removers. I had to actually order things to get them so I figured not only will I save more money, I can save time. So one afternoon I bought like 4 different ones I hadn’t tried. I needed something that wiped off most of my sunscreen….and my favorite was: Neutrogena.

I actually bought both the scented and the unscented. I prefer original scented one. The scent is so good don’t know what it is…just so pretty and I don’t even like scented skincare that much. You get 25 wipes for under $5. I like to get mine at Target or Walmart they give you best prices.

Last but not least all things eucalyptus! I am currently obsessed with the Malin+Goetz deodorant. I try my best to steer far away from deodorants with aluminum in it but they always worked the best….but I tried to look for natural deodorants without…charcoal I think something about it makes my skin burn)and after about 4 trials and errors, I found the M+G deodorant. It smells like the blue Halls cough drop in a good way light, clean. I only use it once in the morning after I shower and I don’t ever have to reapply its so easy and wonderful.
