Can't Live Without It

Happy Friday!  My week wasn't exactly too eventful, so I couldn't find 5 things to share with you - haha.  Instead, I'm linking up with Cait, Laura, and Stephanie to share three of my current favorite things before the weekend!

Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes*: For Earth Day, I received these wipes from Influenster.  Neutrogena Naturals is partnering with The Nature Conservancy to create the #WipeforWater campaign.  Did you know that you can waste up to 5 gallons of water a day by washing your face?  I like to wash my face at the end of the day, just as much as the next girl, but I still figured I'd give it a try and try to save some water.  I usually use Neutrogena's Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes, and they leave my face with an oily residue that I need to wash off.  I tried the Naturals wipes against my usual wipes (one on each eye/side of my face).  The natural wipes removed the makeup just as well, smelled great (like pear and green apple), did not leave the normal greasy feeling, but I did feel a slight burning sensation under my eye.  So, in the long run, I did need to wash my face to get rid of that feeling.  However, if I was just removing eye makeup, I wouldn't need to wash my face.

Schick Hydro Silk Trimstyle^: Let's be honest, I usually use a men's razor.  They're sharper and seem to last longer for me.  However, I really like this razor so far.  I've been using it for a week or so now, and it's still sharp.  The cost of the razor is pretty good, too (less than $20) and it's only about $3 a piece for replacement cartridges. 

Barefoot Bubbly - Moscato Spumante: This is definitely a go-to for me.  I love the apricot and peachy flavors, and it's great added to one of my favorite cocktails (here) to give a little esservesents (anyone? anyone?).  And let's be real, I definitely just put it in the mason jars for this photo opp - Mike and I are known for splitting a bottle of champagne, straight out of the bottle a couple times per week.

I need to check out that razor, I haaate how expensive they are even though they're something that you kind of have to have no matter what.

Barefoot white wines are so good. Maybe too good because I tend to drink the whole bottle, haha.

I am a big fan of makeup wipes simply because I am lazy! Although a burning sensation does not sound too fun! I find that the grapefruit wipes sting as well!

I love using makeup wipes for the days I'm feeling too tired to give my face a good washing. Happy weekend!

Rebecca Jo said...

I just started using those wipes & LOVE the convenience of them. I can wipe off my make up while I'm doing other things... like watching TV :) haha

Might need to try that make up remover. Mary Kay has a great eye makeup remover - I am amazed how well it gets all my eye make up off!!

Megan @ Chicago Girl said...

I buy those wipes in bulk at Costco. Yes, just confessed to a beauty product in bulk. But I love them so! And yes, bubbly. Yummy. I just unpacked our prosecco glasses we received from our wedding. Yay!

Jen said...

I really wish I enjoyed wine, I've tried so many and no luck.

Caitlyn {Home Sweet Ruby} said...

I'll have to give those makeup wipes a try! And yes, I'm with you on the champs straight out of the bottle! Classy right? :) Thanks for linking up!
