Are you a full skincare routine kinda gal, or are you a wipe everything off with a makeup wipe, slap on some kind of moisturizer and call it good kinda gal?
I fall somewhere in between, most days. If we are going to be completely honest though, at night I am never a full routine girl. By the time that bedtime rolls around, I am done. And the lure of just climbing into bed is far to great to pull out all the stops. Yes I realize that at night, would be the best time to get a really good routine; then your skin can absorb it throughout the night. You would get a greater benefit from sleeping with the serums and moisturizer on your skin. However, that is not going to happen. (Now in the morning is a different story. I like my full skin routine when I am getting out of the shower.)
Knowing that I am a makeup wipe kinda girl, I am assure you that I have tried a lot of different brands. You name it and I have most likely tried it. Some have been decent, some have been ok, some have been down right horrible. The main issue that I have with most of them is their ability to remove mascara. It seems that no matter what I do, I wake up with raccoon eyes. It is not a pretty look, plus it seems to stain my skin making it appear that I have dark circles under my eyes, even once I remove it. Not exactly what I am going for.
Neutrogena though was a brand that I have not tried. It is a drug store brand, but it is kind of expensive when you are looking at a bunch of them in the store aisle. When there are so many options, and this on the higher price point, it was one of the few that I have not tried. Holy cow, was I surprised.
The wipes themselves are not as moist as many of the others. I thought that this would be an issue, however it wasn’t. In fact, with the lower amount of “solution” it does not dry out my skin as many of the other ones do. The material it is made out of is more of a cotton like material, then a paper towel material. And is very soft on my face, without any threads coming out. My skin looks great; it is completely blemish free, every trace of dirt is removed, and even that pesky mascara is completely gone. From now on, these will be my go to makeup wipe. I actually went to to Target today and purchased another pack of them.
How about you? Are you a makeup wipe girl, or do you cringe at the thought? What are your favorite brands? Do you get them at the drugstore or always from Sephora?
