I'm a little hesitant to call my morning "wash my face and put on a little makeup routine" a beauty routine! But, it does help me to be presentable to the general public and to not frighten any children. :o)
I wanted to share with you the facial cleansing product that I have finally decided would be the only one I'll buy. I have tried many of the more expensive cream cleansers, pump cleansers, age rewind cleansers, etc., using coupons combined with sales and extra bucks from CVS. I will be honest with you, they don't really clean my face. It takes at least two repeats and even then when I would dry my face the towel would have a little make up on it, and I don't even wear that much makeup. I really don't like those that have the little cleansing beads in them. They are so hard to rinse off.
This simple facial soap made by Neutrogena is inexpensive and works really well. I recently bought this one at Walmart for $2.24 using a $2.00 coupon good on ANY Neutrogena product. For 24 cents, it will clean my face really well the first time and will not dry my skin. It also comes in a sensitive skin formula. My face feels naturally clean, not greasy or dry. One bar of the soap lasts a long time, also.
It simplifies my morning routine too. Its inexpensive enough that I can buy an extra one which goes in the shower to be used when taking a morning shower. I also place one in a plastic soap container on the bathroom vanity for washing my face there.
It also simplifies my shopping, since I no longer need to worry about which one of those expensive cleansers to buy and how to get a good deal on them. I do try to use a coupon on the Neutrogena soap, but if one isn't available, the price isn't too bad without one.
Do you use a beauty product that works really well, but doesn't cost an arm and a leg? If so, I'd like to hear about it.
