These Eye Makeup Remover Pads Do Nothing…

Similar to how we do our Try Me Tuesday posts with product recommendations, I thought it would be also fun to do basically the complete opposite. With that said, I introduce “Waste of Money Wednesday!” This post will be exactly that – the Hip2Save team will be sharing products that they aren’t happy with, products they feel are a waste of money – basically product UN-recommendations.

Hey There! It’s Angie – one of Collin’s sidekicks!

Ever been in a hurry?

I recently ran out of eye makeup remover and made a quick stop at Walmart to grab more. Well… since I was in a hurry, I grabbed the wrong kind. 🙁  And needless to say, Almay Gentle Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover Pads are definitely NOT my favorite.

Now I do have to say that my ALL time favorite makeup remover pads are the Almay Longwear & Waterproof variety. This product is the bomb and I LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!

These two varieties look so similar on the outside (hence my mistake in purchasing the wrong one), but what’s on the inside is another story.

The oil free pads just do nothing for me, and getting my eye makeup off feels like a joke! I have to rub and rub the pad over my eyes, then wipe my eyes with a tissue and next to nothing comes off. Then I take a washcloth over my eyes and my washcloth is a nice shade of black. They just don’t seem to work well at all. Such a bummer!

With my trusty regular makeup remover pads (the Longwear variety), I am able to gently remove all of my eye makeup, simply by using the pad and then wiping with a tissue (of course I follow it with a washcloth but my washcloth isn’t black when I am done). Did I mention that they are wonderful? ❤

Sadly, I am going to trash this almost full container.

Have you ever thrown away an almost full/new product because you just couldn’t bring yourself to use it?

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
