Monday. Let’s ignore that fact, shall we? Let’s concentrate on the beauty that is the “makeup” part. Or, rather, the makeup removal part. My friend, M-Shell (hey, girl, hey), wanted to know what I use to take my makeup off at night.

I feel ya. I feel ya. At the end of the day, sometimes it’s all you can do to swish with water and a speck of toothpaste and crawl into your bed before you dissolve into a puddle of adulthood and broken dreams. What, just me? But I digress…

Let me introduce you to your new best friend:  Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes.

Love you, boo.

Seriously. I discovered these babies many moons ago, and I would be lost without them. Because sometimes you just need to scrub your face with a soft little towelette and feel good that you took your makeup off.

If I’m feeling particularly ambitious, I’ll cleanse, tone, and moisturize after this. But some (okay, a lot) days, I go straight from this to toner and moisturizer. If you’re wearing a particularly intense eye makeup, you might need a more traditional liquid or cream to do the dirty work, but I have found that these little beauties cut through even the most glam or goth makeup, lipstick included.

There are different formulations within the product line such as deep cleaning, calming night, and hydrating. You can find them in any drugstore, supermarket, or Mecca. I mean Target.

How do you take your makeup off?

Let me know if you have any future Makeup *Bad Word* questions or suggestions, and I’ll do my best to address or answer them.

Y’all have a great day!

    I always take my eye makeup off with Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover on a cotton ball. My naturally brittle eyelashes need a specific mascara remover and don’t tolerate much of anything else. Then as opposed to washing my face properly, I often go the convenient route and take off my makeup with cleansing wipes as well. I’ve tried a ton of brands. My favorite as of the past year (a record!) has been the Boots No 7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes, available at least at Target or Ulta. Love love love. Just the wipes, then no moisturizer, but I do add under eye cream.

      Nice!! I’ll have to try the Boots brand!. I looooove the convenience of cleansing wipes. They better never stop making them!!

    Baby wipes. They’re thick, large and cut through waterproof everything. I have super sensitive skin and since they’re meant for baby bottoms they’re one of the few things that don’t make my skin blotchy and or dry. I was on a short film and the make-up artist recommended them to me. With travelling they’re fab as well because you can use them for freshening up (especially when it’s hot but there’s no time to shower) or degunking make-up brushes in a pinch. And best of all: great value for money, even if you buy the premium brand ones!
