CVS Dual-Sided Facial Cleansing Pads

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

It’s always neat when a store brand comes out with something great. We are big fans of cleansing cloths here, our favorite being Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. They save your washcloths/electronic cleanser from your makeup and come in handy when you don’t have the energy to wash your face at night. However, if you are reluctant to buy more than one cleanser for your face, we recommend CVS’s Dual-Sided Facial Cleansing Pads. These are made to work in conjunction with whatever facial cleanser you choose. We really liked using it with Burt’s Bees Sensitive Cleanser – since it’s so gentle you need to buy separate product if you want to exfoliate. However with the CVS cleansing pads you don’t have to. Admittedly, it’s more affordable to buy the cleansing pads than cleansing towelettes; they are only $3.29 on the CVS website for 45 pads. We loved the texture of our skin after using the pads and felt like we got a better clean than the old-fashioned way. This is especially useful for those who have combination skin; you can use the textured size to get rid of dry skin spots without exfoliating your whole face.

Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser

Friday, February 24th, 2012

The best thing you can do for sensitive skin is keep its barrier intact. Unfortunately, sometimes this gets damaged with all of the chemical and manual exfoliators on the market. So even if you don’t have sensitive skin naturally, you may have inflamed skin if you’re using harsh cleansers or moisturizers with acids too often. We tried Burt’s Bees Sensitive Skin Facial Cleanser and were very pleased with the results. In only one week we saw a transformation in our skin – less redness and irritation, and a lot less dryness. Since this is a very gentle cleanser, you may want to take off your makeup first with makeup removing towelettes such as Neutrogena’s. We must warn that at first this product may feel like your skin has a film on it, and that may be because you’re accustomed to your skin being stripped of its natural moisture. Try it out for at least a week to see results. We recommend this for not only people with sensitive skin, but for those who have used harsh products and want to give their skin a break. If you have acne, we recommend alternating using this cleanser and your regular acne cleanser until you get the right balance. For instance, try using Sensitive Skin Facial Cleanser in the morning and your acne wash at night. Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser is not only 99% natural, it is also fragrance free and hypo-allergenic.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

We have a new favorite cleansing towelette brand! After seeing Neutrogena’s Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes in Allure magazine, we decided to give them a try. These towelettes truly remove ALL of your makeup effortlessly. You don’t have to make several passes to get everything off. This is not only great for when you’re too lazy to wash your face at night, it’s also great from saving your washcloths from heavy eye makeup. These cloths are soft and gentle on your skin and are actually a bit larger than Ponds Cleansing Towelettes. What we liked about Neutrogena over Ponds is that with Neutrogena there isn’t so much of a residue, so you can go without rinsing.

Ponds Evening Soothe Wet Cleansing Towelettes

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Many of the makeup removing towlettes on the market claim to remove all makeup, and then when you try them out it’s like a bad April Fools prank. Ponds Evening Soothe Wet Cleansing Towelettes actually removed ALL of our makeup easily. We think that the cloth being textured has a lot to do with it; it lifts more makeup that way. It also passed the ultimate test, which is removing black eyeliner and mascara. If you’d like to give the Ponds Wet Cleansing Towlettes a try you can go to http://www.ponds.com/coupon.aspx for a coupon. We tried the towlettes with chamomile and white tea (ingredients which are soothing to the skin) for evening, but they also have a morning towlette with citrus and cucumber
