I love wearing makeup but when it comes down to washing my one million and one brushes it can be a hell of a deal.

- One does not simply go to bed without using a cleanser for proper removal of makeup from the face. I like to remove my makeup by using makeup wipes or micellar water. After using any of the mentioned product I like to follow up with a cleanser.The Neutrogena One Step Gentle Cleanser is a gentle pearly gel-like texture cleanser, it gives off a soft lather and it helps to rid the makeup from the skin. I purchased it using Amazon Prime Pantry, so I got it for the lost cost of $4.22. I checked the price at several other resellers like Walmart and the price varies; however, it is a very inexpensive makeup remover in a bottle.
The Neutrogena One Step Gentle Cleanser eliminates all traces of stubborn makeup from the skin. I only had difficulties removing makeup from my eye area and lips which I would normally use a makeup wipe to rid the makeup. At the very first wash, I was able to remove excess amount of makeup from my skin. I follow up with a second wash to remove makeup from my hairline and other areas. My skin felt immediately fresh and clean. Afterwards, I followed up with Witch Hazel Toner and there was little to no makeup residue left to remove from my skin on the cotton pad. I have very sensitive skin and I did not experience any signs of redness, stinging or burning in my eye area.
Product Ratings for Neutrogena One Step CleanserI use the Neutrogena One Step Gentle Cleanser by pumping the cleanser in my wet hands 1-2x and by massaging the product into my skin. It immediately helps to break down the makeup and I was able to rinse away the product from my skin.The product comes in a 5.2 fl oz (153 ml) pump size clear blue bottle.

- If you’ve got a big night out planned, you want to be looking your best. You might be heading to the mall to find the perfect outfit and some fresh cosmetics. Maybe you’ve even got a salon appointment? Before you go and melt the plastic of your credit card, consider where you really want to be spending your cash? Do you need to spend big to have a big night out?It’s always nice to buy everything new for a big event or night out. That doesn’t mean you have to if you would rather spend your hard-earned cash on the event itself. You might have a gorgeous dress tucked in the back of your closet that is begging to come out and be seen. If you’re worried someone might recognize it from last season, dress it up with fresh accessories and a different pair of shoes.Don’t spend hours in the mall at the cosmetics counter. Try hunting for make-up coupons that offer you great products without the hassle. Remember, your application technique is just as important as the product when you want to achieve that flawless look. Pop your savings in your purse to go toward your evening out. Would you give up the salon stylist and do your hair at home? The savings you make could provide you with a little extra cash to enjoy while you’re out.
If you’re worried about spending too much money while you’re out, why not give yourself a top limit? This will help prevent you going overdrawn or ringing up big bills you can’t afford. You could leave the credit card at home and only carry cash so you can see when you’re starting to run low. If you’re worried about this, you can try a prepaid card. Of course, you should never leave yourself too short to cover the cost of a cab home.
Booking your venues in advance can sometimes save you a little extra cash too. If you know where you’re heading this evening, why not call and see what offers are available? You can use the savings for something extra on the night, or put it away for something else another time. Sharing a ride with the others in your party can help you all spread the cost of the evening too. Sometimes a hotel room shared with you is cheaper than the cost of a late night cab from the city.Alcohol will always cost more than soft drinks. Why not alternate between the two? If there are a lot of you in your party, you could share a pitcher, or buy your drinks in advance on a tab that may offer a discount. What about dining? Some restaurants offer a set price per head when you book for the entire party in advance. This means you don’t have to limit yourself to a salad if your budget is a little tight.You don’t have to spend a lot on a big night out to enjoy it. Sometimes the evening can be more fun knowing you’ve put a little away in savings too. Enjoy!
Do you love makeup but aren’t sure if you’re doing it right? Don’t worry, follow this makeup routine, and you’ll be a pro achieving a flawless makeup look within no time.
