Quick Beauty Tip ~ Makeup Remover that Won't Break the Bank

Hey beauties!

Today I'm going to be talking about an amazing find for all of you makeup-lovers who want a fool proof makeup remover for a fraction of the cost of using wipes.  Many people use makeup wipes to take off stubborn waterproof mascara and eyeliner that just won't budge even in the shower.  While I used to depend on those a lot, I realized they started stinging my eyes, leaving my skin dry, and running out in a quick period of time.  Neutrogena wipes can cost around $5-8 on a pack of 25 which adds up quicker than you'd think!  A pack can only really last a little less than a month, not to mention many dry out.

My solution?

Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser.  Doing lots of theater productions for my school, I found that this was the most efficient and effective way to take off my makeup, especially during quick changes!  Retailing at about $4.70, this jar will last at least a year and really works!  With one swipe this stuff can take off any 24 hour, waterproof, will-stay-on-your-face-forever type of stuff.  It sounds sort of foreign, but I can actually find it in any drugstore I go to as well as Target and Wal-Mart!  Make sure to get the COLD CREAM versus the one labeled makeup remover.  I find that I prefer this one because it smells better and doesn't sting your eyes!

Keep reading to find out how it works!

How it Works:

To put it to the test I took out some of my most stubborn products to remove and swatched it on my hand.  I then put a little bit of the cream and it rubbed right off!

Wet n Wild I Got Good Jeans Eyeshadow Trio, NYC Liquid Liner, Maybelline One by One Waterproof, Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bold Gold

Swatched on the hand

Applied a little cream

Voila!  All clean my scrubbing once over with a wipe.

The product that came off.

Not only does this cream take off your makeup, it really moisturizes your face and leaves your face feeling dewy and refreshed, ready for a night's sleep!
