Fiesta’s Finds: Neutrogena Extra Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads

28 Oct

Sensitive skin sucks. I’ve spent literally hundreds of dollars trying out different formulas in search of something that won’t bother me,  which is why I’m especially happy when I find a mild products that’s affordable.

Extra Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads Neutrogena, $7.99

Usually I use liquid eye makeup remover and a cotton round to take off my eye-makeup before cleansing the rest of my face. This method works, but depending on which remover I use my eyes might start to itch or just be covered in oil. Gross!

Neutrogena’s new Eye Makeup Remover Pads are super soft and easy on the eyes. They’re large enough that I can take off eyeshadow, liner and mascara  – yes, even the Marc Jacobs gel liner that’s so waterproof it NEVER moves – from both eyelids in just one pad!

I’m mostly happy that this is a drugstore brand. It’s always awesome to find products that agree with you but even better when it’s a product you can use coupons on!


4 beauty essentials to keep in stock this season

20 Jun

Starting tomorrow, summer is OFFICIALLY here, and warmer weather usually means a pared down primping routine, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop caring for your skin and hair altogether! Keep reading for the four summer beauty essentials to keep your skin smooth and nourished through the summer.

Lightweight body moisturizer

Toss the heavy creams and butters in favor of a lightweight moisturizer. Summer skin still needs hydration – just in smaller doses. Try one with aloe.

CC creams

Who feels like putting on layers of makeup in the summer heat? CC creams are all the rage this year since they moisturize, prime, color correct and contain SPF.


Whether you want to limit the amount of skin damage as you soak in the sun with a sunscreen, or prevent UVA and UVB rays from penetrating your skin altogether with a sunblock, you’ll need an SPF of at least 15.  Sure a tan might look good for the next few days but its not worth premature aging of the skin.

Foot scrub

Walking around in sandals will take its toll on your feet! Treat them right with a weekly foot scrub to exfoliate skin, prevent callouses and leave skin feeling silky smooth.
