RevitaLift Radiant Smoothing Wet Cleansing Towelettes


I was not expecting much when I swiped a L’oreal’s Revitalift Radiant Smoothing Wet Cleansing Towelette over my face.

Le Blanc Immediate Brightening Oil-Gel Makeup Remover

My friend’s mother is one of the most gorgeous women I’ve ever seen and she’s only ever used Chanel products- EVER- for her entire product-using life. I obviously had to know her secrets, and this was one of them- Le Blanc Immediate Brightening Oil-Gel Makeup Remover.

The Skincare Instant Eye and Lip Makeup Remover

The Skincare Instant Eye and Lip Makeup Remover from Shiseido is one of my faves, because it’s (LAZY GAL ALERT!) one of the easiest to use. Squeeze a little on a cotton pad and swipe gently on your eyes and mouth. No rubbing necessary- it’s that effective. This leaves a very nice glow on your skin. I know that because (don’t tell Shiseido) I’ve used it all over my face.

Shu Uemera Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil

Let’s get a few things out of the way right now. Shu Uemera’s Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil costs $67. It’s a cleansing OIL. For OILY skin.
Now- it is worth the money. It will simultaneously remove all of your makeup and control the sebum and breakouts for normal, combo and oily/acne-prone skin, AND give you a gorgeous, glowing complexion.

Physicians Formula Eye Makeup Remover Pads

The things a Product Whore learns from traveling around! Not sure where I picked these up, or who turned me on to them, but Physician’s Formula Eye Makeup Remover Pads turned out to be a sweet little find, especially for $6!


Did Lancôme Bi-Facil (oy, what a name!) take all of my mascara and that unsightly burgundy ring that was starting to form around my inner lip away at the end of the night? YEP! Did I love the way my skin felt afterward? NOPE!!

Immortelle Eye Make-up Remover

A luxurious makeup remover from L’Occitane, with “milk” in the title– are you getting an image in your mind?

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes

Full disclosure- I am not a Neutrogena skincare fan. However, I AM a gal who travels a lot, and there are times when all a traveling gal can find open at 3am is a Wawa knockoff, and all that’s on the shelf to clean her poor, tired face are these recognizable Makeup Remover Wipes from Neutrogena.

The Cleansing Oil

It’s so amazing, softening, and clarifying, that it has “The” in front of it’s name– as in, “THE Cleansing Oil”. This could only be La Mer, folks. A PHENOMENAL makeup remover, and for this lazy gal, WINNING in that I can use it with a swissper and a little toner and call it a day. Those that would like a cleaner feeling can use with aqua. In La Mer speak, that’s fancy for “water”.


Lush’s Ultrabland cleanser is my holy grail product. Removes the most stubborn of mascaras, and the almond oil/beeswax/rose mix ensures you wake up with skin like a satin pillow. An added benefit, makes your eyelashes look Disney Princess-like. Fo’ real.
