What I’m testing now – Simple eye make-up remover pads

5 Dec

I heard some good things about the Simple Eye Make-Up Remover.  I have been trying to get my hands on the liquid version, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere in my area.   Since I ran out of Klorane, which I adored, I decided to pick up the wipes instead.


These ran me around $6.00 for 30 pads.

I’ve used these a couple of times, and I’m still working on a full review of these babies.

Have you ladies used these?  Thoughts?

Review – Skyn Iceland Mini Glacial Cleansing Cloths

30 Oct

Sometimes, you received something in an Ipsy bag that you never thought you would like.  Example, Skyn Iceland Mini Glacial Cleansing Cloths.

Historically, I hated cleansing cloths.  I even refused to use them while camping.  I thought they were filmy and smelly and didn’t leave you clean.  Worst of all, I hated not using a cleanser that you rinsed off.

Ipsy and Skyn Iceland Mini Glacial Cleansing Cloths changed my mind.


I received a Skyn product from Ipsy before that I never used.  So,  naturally, I scoffed at this.

But then, one day…I was tired.  And the thought of cold water on my face while all I wanted to do was crawl into bed was not inviting.

I looked at Skyn Iceland Mini Glacial Cleansing Cloths and decided to give it a try.

Surprise!  I liked it!

One cloth cleaned my entire face.  It did a decent enough job on very heavy eye makeup.  If you are only wearing mascara, it should get it off completely.

Why I like it

No residue

No film

Not greasy feeling

Smells great!


My face felt nice, not tight or dry or greasy

There is some minimal eye stinging, but nothing too bad

They are only $15.00 USD

Would I buy?

YES.  It’s awesome to have these around in a pinch.

Review! Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Mascara

12 Jul

I heard some good stuff on YouTube about this mascara,  so last time I was at Ulta I picked it up.  Because it was on sale for like $5.50!  Go me!

 Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Mascara


I bought the Waterproof version because my endless problem with greasy eyelids.   I have to say, this is probably the most waterproof mascara I’ve ever used.  It’s really waxy, so this sucker really sticks to your lashes.  It honestly takes me two days to fully get it off.  And I’m using an eye make up remover, people!

So obviously, if you are being cute at the beach or pool or the zoo on a hot day, this will work wonders for you.

Will not smudge, budge, flake, or in any other way behave in a way you don’t want your mascara to behave.

On the downside, it won’t leave you.  It’s like Paris Hilton, it doesn’t leave and it looks a lot messier in the morning.

Seriously though, this has legit staying power.  Creates nice volume and length.  When I find a  better eye makeup remover, I will love this mascara.

All a girl wants is a makeup remover that takes off what it is supposed to and and doesn’t sting like a million bees attacking your eyeballs.

Sounds simple, HA!
