NOTE FROM COLLIN:
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?
