Cleansing Waters: Are They Necessary to Your Makeup Removal?

Cleansing Water

Cleansing Waters were trending quite a bit this Summer and a bit into Fall however, the hype has died down now. I’m always fascinated by readers, friends, etc…who tell me they remove their makeup at night with a cleansing wipe.

Like my sister, bless her little soul, swears by cleansing wipes. Girl does not wash her face in the evening merely uses a cleansing wipe to remove her mascara/eye makeup. Granted, she uses a heck of a lot less makeup than me but still….

Suddenly I feel like my nightly regime is overkill! Cleansing oil, cleansing wash, toner, mist…am I over doing it?

Do I need to rely on a Cleansing Water and simply just that?

Do the E.L.F. Coupons Really Suck Lately?

ELF

I placed an order for some of the new E.L.F. goodies that recently launched like the Jumbo Eye and Lip Pencils but dude, what’s with the lack of coupons?

I used to get all sorts of cool 50% off your total order coupons but now all the coupons are 10 to 15% for new customers only.

What the hell?

I miss those killer deals E.L.F.!

Anyone notice the lack of coupons lately?

Musings of the Day: What Was Your First High End or Counter Moisturizer?

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

Does anyone remember Clean & Clear Moisturizer (not even sure they make it anymore?)? I remember using it in high school. It had a tingly sort of feeling going on my face and supposedly had an oil-free formula but my face somehow still looked oily after using it.

I was trying to remember my first real counter moisturizer this morning.

Do you remember yours?

Musings of the Day: What Did You Haul During the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale?

It’s possible abnormal to walk out of Bath & Body Works hauling out a bag of twenty or so candles but that’s exactly what happened to me during the Semi-Annual Sale.

I really, really wanted to indulge during the typical two for twenty deal when Bath & Body originally launched some of their Spring/Summer 2012 candles but couldn’t justify a purchase since I had SO many left over from Christmas.

But since they are on sale plus extra coupons and such floating around the Internet I ended up hauling.

Where I’m storing all of this is anyone’s guess!

Outside of the candles I also picked up some home fragrance oils and some of the silver plated candle holders.

What about you?

What sort of major haul did you do at Bath & Body Works?

Share your haul with me!

Curious what everyone got.

Did anyone feel this year’s sale was kinda small-ish compared the year’s past?

I remember hauling X-mas stuff, older products, etc…during the sale and tons of accessories and such. This year it seemed like the stuff on sale was mostly products they just recently launched this Spring/Summer.

Musings of the Day: Waterless Shower Anyone?

Even the good Doctor needs a little water in his shower!

Remember old dime novel sci-fi novels and flicks that would have occupants of a space shuttle jump into a cubicle for a water-free shower?

I mean the idea sounds rather fab. Jumping into a stall and coming out of it clean as a daisy? Heck, some novels, shows, and movies depict people going in with their clothes on and coming out with new clothes and a freshly washed body.

But honestly, I’m all for water. I take a shower in the AM and indulge in a calming, relaxing Lush bath in the evening on cold Fall and Winter nights. Fact is, I rely on water to wake me up! That splash in my face in the morning is just what I need to get me into work mode because facts is facts I am SO NOT a morning person.

What if water factored out of your shower experience?

Would you be cool with a waterless shower?
