When I learned that I was selected to participate in the Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes “Face-Off Challenge“, I was beyond excited! I LOVE Neutrogena products!! True story. However, the towelettes were a product I had not used. So, imagine my excitement when I received a trial of the towelettes to try, in addition to a cute white face towel for the challenge.
So before I go into the details of the challenge, I first have to share my usual makeup removing, sophisticated, technique. Haha, not really! 😛
My usual night-time removal routine involves:
- Washing my face with Neutrogena Face Wash (which I love, but is not completely effective for 100% makeup removal).
- Removing the rest of my make up with face or any Aveeno lotion and a tissue or, usually, a piece of toilet paper! Waa, please don’t judge me!!! 😦
That’s it. My usual make-up removing ritual, before these magic wipes came into my life, was pretty depressing. What’s worse is that I usually STILL had mascara smeared around my eyes because the baby lotion wasn’t effective enough, so my hubby slept next to a raccoon most nights! Haha!
Sigh! Anyway, cut to the Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes “Face-Off Challenge”! This was a complete GAME CHANGER! I’m talking Oprah ‘Aha’ moment, fat lady singing, ‘Eureka’ moment, all in one!!
For the challenge, I took a picture of myself right before bed, prior to removing my makeup (yes, a selfie…SCARY!!):
Then I took a single Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelette and used it all around my face – yes, even around my eyes! The towelette is soft and smells pretty amazing! It left my face amazingly clean! But, yuck, so much remained on the towelette:
Ummm, perhaps I should consider wearing less makeup??! Hmm, sounds like a good idea in theory. Good thing I’m not a theorist! 😉
Next, I washed my face with my usual face wash. No picture for that, sorry! 😛
Okay, the final step was honestly, a bit scary. I REALLY wanted this challenge to be a success. Because I had never used the towelettes, I had my doubts about the effectiveness of the product and wondered whether they would really pass the ‘white towel’ test!!
THANK goodness for the makeup removing geniuses who created these towelettes, because after drying my face with the white towel – yes, even around my eyes – there was NO makeup left on my face!! SUCCESS!!
Here’s a picture of me, with no makeup on (ACK!!!) and a CLEAN white towel!! Please excuse the makeup-less selfie, but it was part of the challenge!! EEEK!
Anyway, you get the picture…the towelettes work!! I’m officially a fan! Thankfully, I also have a whole box for participating in the challenge! 😀
Anyhow, challenge completed and deemed a complete success! I leave you with some information provided by Neutrogena about these makeup removing soft cloths, and hope that you enjoyed this review!
