I consider makeup a necessary evil. I look better with it, but can’t stand to put it on or take it off. Add the fact that I have sensitive eyes and skin… and my skin tends to be dry. This is why I need an effective product that easily, and without a lot of scrubbing, removes my makeup at the end of the day.
I admire those that have that patience to spend hours each evening on a skin care routine. By the end of the day, my patience is gone. I need a simple process that takes care of my skin but isn’t labor-intensive. And I don’t want to pay a gazillion bucks. (Been there, done that. It’s easy to get “Instascammed” by beauty products.)
Regular Pond’s Cold Cream is tried and true. If you use waterproof mascara, Pond’s is the only way to go. However, I prefer to get into the shower and wash the entire day off of me at once. Regular Pond’s just doesn’t work this way.
That’s why I adored a product that Pond’s recently discontinued – Pond’s Cold Cream Cleansing Balm. It washed all of your makeup off with absolutely no scrubbing and left your skin with the moisturized and smooth feeling of regular Pond’s. Why, oh why, did they stop making it?
To find a replacement, I tried a lot of five star reviewed products… all of which I hated. Micellar cleansing water? The absolute worst. I was left looking like an angry raccoon. A solid nope.
After too much wasted money, I found a cleanser that not only takes care of my skin but removes all of my eye makeup in one wash: Olay Total Effects 7 In One Revitalizing Foaming Face Cleanser.
At night, I jump in the shower and gently lather up with a pea-sized amount. Rinse and viola! My face is perfectly clean. From there, I finish off with a nighttime Olay retinol moisturizer.
That’s it. That’s my nighttime skin routine. I have other products and things that I do to take care of my skin (including using a light mask a couple of times a week and eating a daily dose of healthy greens), but my nighttime routine is a simple, straightforward process.
At the end of the day, keep your skin routine simple and effective by using Olay Total Effects 7 In One Revitalizing Foaming Face Cleanser. It’s the best face cleaner out there for removing makeup. All of my mascara is gone in one fail swoop. You can find it in most drug stores (Rite Aid, CVS), Target, or Amazon.
Olay Total Effects 7 In One Revitalizing Foaming Face Cleanser is Nancy Approved.
