Coolway True Smooth Review

Press Sample
I have been a little hard on my hair the past few months, blow dying and flat ironing more frequently then I usually do. I was given the opportunity through BeautyStat to test out the True Smooth spray. The True Smooth spray is said to help you achieve straight hair without using a flat iron.

My hair naturally curly, which means getting it straight is quite a process. I make attempts to limit heat styling when I can to reduce the possibility of damage. The Amino Lock MAB molecule is activated by your blow dryer to hold your style from the inside out as you dry. True Smooth is supposed to give you the same smooth, frizz free results you would get after flatironing without having to do that step. So smooth, frizz free hair without damage.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes #NeutrogenaFaceOff

Press Sample
#NeutrogenaFaceOff
I try to stay on point with removing my makeup each day; but even I have those times when reaching for a makeup removing wipe is just faster and easier. When Neutrogena asked if I would take the #NeutrogenaFaceOff challenge, I was game. The Neutrogena Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes effectively remove 99% of your daily makeup, including waterproof mascara, to leave you with fresh, clean skin. 
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes #NeutrogenaFaceOffChallenge
The rules for the challenge were to remove makeup using only the Neutrogena Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes; then pat face with a white hand towel, and show you if there was any residue left on the face.  Game on Neutrogena, let's see how the cleansing towelettes held up. 
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes #NeutrogenaFaceOffChallenge
Ladies and Gents, we have a winner! I was actually completely blown away that with just one towelette all my makeup was off, and there was not a spot on the towel when I blotted my face. Zip, Zilch, Nada, all traces of makeup gone. 
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes #NeutrogenaFaceOffChallenge
These are the hands down best makeup removing cloths I have used, and bonus they did not irritate my skin and did not require a heavy hand. I lightly wiped over my face, neck and around my ears with one cloth. 

Have you used the Neutrogena Makeup Removing Towelettes?  If not, would you take the challenge?  I would love to hear your thoughts. 


*I was provided with a sample of the product to take the challenge, all opinions are my own.
