Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes #NeutrogenaFaceOff

Challenges/ Makeup Remover/ Neutrogena
Press Sample

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.

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.

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.

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.

♥ My February Favorites ♥

CHI/ Crown Brush/ favorite things/ Loreal/ Mineral Fusion/ Neutrogena/ Pantene/ Pur & Basic/ Zoya
Press Sample/Affiliate Links/ I Purchased

Pretty sure I say this every single month, where does the time go? The older I get the faster time seems to go by. I blinked and gone was February.

Here is a look back at some products I loved in February. February was a fairly simple month for me. The winter was getting to me and I valued my sleep a bit more; so I was all about the 5 minute face. I don’t think I wore eye shadow to work at all last month. I have been styling my hair in heat-less curls (more on that in a future post). I can finally be up and completely ready for work in less than 45 minutes. 

 Beauty Blogger Monthly Favorites: Chi Silk Infusion, Crown Brush, Pantene Keratin Mist, Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator, Meaningful Beauty, Mineral Fusion Vegan Nail Polish, Microdermabrasion

1. Pur & Basic Argan Body Lotion (price varies): TJ Maxx & Marshalls are both stores I find myself visiting for absolutely no reason. It never fails; I always come home with something.  I picked up this Argan Oil body lotion by pur and basic. I am extremely picky about body lotion and was pleasantly surprised how amazing this one is. This argan and marula oil lotion leaves my skin soft and moisturized. This particular version was Limited Edition and I wish I would have bought a backup.
2. CHI Silk Infusion ($24.50): I have used this on and off for years when straightening my hair. In the summer I was letting my hair air dry. In the winter I don’t want to walk around with a wet head for long so I have been blow drying. The CHI silk infusion made it back into my routine. This alcohol free restructuring treatment is infused with natural silk, wheat, and soy proteins protect the hair during heat styling. A little goes a long way.  Add about a quarter sized amount to your palms and work through damp hair. 
3. Pantene Advanced Keratin Repair KeraGloss Oil Mist ($14): My goodness I cannot stop raving about this product. I LOVE IT!!!! This very lightweight spray contains argan, jojoba, and sesame oils that coat your hair in a protective layer; restoring smoothness and shine. This is one of those products that will leave you wondering how you’ve been living without it. Dear Pantene, Please don’t ever stop making this. A quick spritz on each section before flat ironing will have you hair bouncing and behaving.  

4. Meaningful Beauty Crème de Serum (price varies): You know you have seen the infomercial for this anti-aging skin care line from Cindy Crawford. This cream/serum hybrid restores moisture and firmness while reducing the appearance of fine lines. Beyond an eye cream I’ve also used this around my smile lines. Both areas have shown significant improvement. 

5. *Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System ($19.99) This little wonder packs a punch. Late last year my dermatologist recommended I get microdermabrasion and a chemical peel. At the time the holidays were approaching and I never had them done. Well, I probably won’t now that my skin is clearing up. This Neutrogena system works very well. After the first use my skin had a noticeable glow, and oh weeeeee it was so baby soft. I was in awe, as I stared back at myself. This at home microdermabrasion machine has two speeds. The vibration is a little strong but tolerable.  My sensitive skin experienced no irritation whatsoever. The Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System comes with 12 rejuvenating puffs; batteries are included.

6. L’Oreal True Match Concealer ($8.95): This concealer has been my 5 minute face go to.  The L’Oreal true match conceal
er blends easily with buildable coverage. This concealer did not cake up on me at all and lasted well throughout my normal day.  I am currently using shade Medium/deep W6-7-8. Perfect for under eye concealing, nose, and cheek highlighting. I prefer to blend this in with my beauty blender.  

7. Crown Brush: I picked up a few crown brushes at the Makeup Show in Orlando last year. The booth was bananas packed the entire weekend, and now I know why. I was initially using this brush for BB cream; now I also use it for foundation.  The soft densely packed synthetic hairs leave a nice natural finish.  My only complaint is that none of the brushes have names or numbers on them. I browsed the site and believe this is the C439 Infinity Round Buffer, currently priced at $13.95. This is the only face brush I used all last month, I love it. 

8. Qtica Natural Nail Growth Simulator ($20): You beauties have heard me complaining for months now that my nails have been falling apart. After a few weeks of use, I have seen a noticeable improvement in growth and strength. 

9. Mineral Fusion Nail Polish in Rock Cress ($7.99) Mineral Fusion polishes are 5 Free and Vegan.  This purple cream applied like a dream, I wore it three times.
