Some of you might remember my musing about how a discount can affect my purchasing patterns when I picked up the Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Lotion Makeup Remover. Irrational as it was, I love it when an impulse purchase like that turns out to be a good buy. Better yet, its a bargain good buy!
The Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Lotion is a true blue winner for me. I have combination-dry skin where I’m oily on the forehead, nose and chin and dry on the cheeks. Quite a common affliction in this hot and humid tropical climate we live in.
The Neutrogena Cleansing Lotion boasts that it removes all makeup, even waterproof mascara. So, I put it to the test. I’d use a piece of cotton with some cleansing lotion to clean my eye area and waterproof mascara. It cleans off eyeshadow and liner well enough but takes a bit of wiping for waterproof mascara to be fully cleaned off. So I prefer to use a dedicated eye makeup remover instead like my L’oreal Eye and Lip makeup remover. I also found that if I got the lotion into my eyes, it stings! I hate that 😛
It comes into its own when used on the face. For the face, I’d squirt 2-3 pumps of cleansing lotion into my palm, rub my hands together and then massage the lotion all over my face. I’m prepared to be generous with its use because its not bank-breaking after all.
