Tuesday Tip of the Day: Makeup Remover

Because I wear contact lens, I'm very picky about my eye makeup remover.

I also tend to be....ahem...cheap.

But most of the inexpensive removers leave a greasy film on your eye that is quite nasty when you wear contacts.

So.....Johnson's Baby Shampoo to the rescue!

This stuff is fantastic for removing makeup!

It doesn't burn or sting. It doesn't leave that yucky residue.  And it even works on waterproof makeup!

It's much less expensive than fancy removers and lasts a LOT longer.  Even the generic brands work great.  (I usually buy the Target brand.)

One important note:  Make sure you wash with warm water.  This little tip doesn't work with cold water.

Oh!  And if you're wondering how I discovered this trick....my fabulous mom gave me the secret years ago.

Isn't she smart?

This is a great tip and I wouldn't have thought of it. Makes sense since it is tear free and doesn't sting babies eyes. Funny this just reminded me of going through fbi training...we had to be maced in order to carry mace and this is what they used to rinse out our eyes.
