Neutrogena Makeup Remover Face Wipes

My fellow bloggers,  I am in a very unhealthy relationship. One week we are very  happy and everything is great but the next week it’s all downhill and I feel like I need to move on and find another. Oh…woops….did I forget to mention I am talking about makeup remover face wipes 🙂

Product: So I am sure most of you know about the Neutrogena Face Wipes by now. They are pre-soaked face wipes that gently and quickly remove all (or at least most) of your makeup. Usually it takes me one and half sheets to get most of the residue off my face and even then I still like to wash my face with a face wash to clean out all my pores. The wipes come in multiple formulations. You can  buy the normal ones, acne  prone cleansing wipes and oil free wipes.

Packaging: The sheets usually come in a plastic box that you can refill with the refill packages,  or you can choose to buy just the refill packets. There are about 25 sheets per refill.

Price: Anywhere form $5 USD and up. It depends on the size of the package, location and availability.

Overall: Ok so here is my dilemma, I really like this product, I think it does a great job on removing my foundation. However, the  price is what gets me. I normally pay about $6.99 for one refill packet and it lasts me about a two to three weeks depending on how much makeup I wear.  This means I invest anywhere from $7- $20/month on just face wipes! Uh…no! It doesn’t seem like a lot to some but for a girl on a STRICT budget, face wipes are a luxury not a necessity. Plus on top of that, I also use normal baby wipes which are 80 wipes per package and cost me $2 USD! So do  I continue to invest in overpriced wipes that do the job or settle for decent baby wipes that I can just wet with eyemakeup remover that work almost as well?

I think I will settle for the baby wipes. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Pressed Powder

Okie Dokie so here’s another product where I fell for the hype. A few years back when everyone jumped on the healthy skin bandwagon and used au naturale products that were good for the skin, I was still using pore clogging, carcinigen full, awesome foundations. But after multiple breakouts and a nasty allergic reaction that no one it allowed to talk about, I bowed my head and finally said “Okay okay lets see what this is all about.”

I bought my Neutrogena Healthy Skin Pressed Powder from my local CVS for about $7, normally the price is alot higher but I bought mine during a BOGO 50% off sale.

Coverage: This product is light to medium buildable coverage. However, for my oily skin, this product did NOTHING! After applying I looked like a ashy ghost even though the powder was my color. After 30 minutes the product was non-existent. If I tried to reapply, it just stuck to my pores and magnified them.

Packaging: This comes in a typical compact form with a bottom section to keep the powder puff. The overall compact however is very bulky and after being tossed in and out of my makeup bag for a while, the plastic snap keeping the lid closed, snapped off.

Pricing: Neutrogena as a brand is one of the more expensive ones in the drugstore. Therefore it is no surprise that this product can run you anywhere from $9-$14 USD, depending on location and aailability. 

Overall: I did not like this product. My oily skin did nothing but look ghostly after application and then sucked on the product within 30 minutes. However, i tried this product on my sister who has noraml to dry skin and the finished still looked chalky on her, but lasted a little longer
