Almay eye makeup remover VS Up&Up makeup remover Review

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I recently started using a makeup remover about a month ago. Before that I was using regular hair conditioner to remove all eye makeup. It worked everytime, but I decided it was time for a change. I realized the conditioner was running out faster and I was going through bottles of conditioner every 3 weeks. At first when I was looking for a makeup remover I wanted to really stay under 3 bucks for it. I know you get what you pay for but I had hopes so I went to Target. I noticed Target had their brand name makeup removers next to name brands. And the store brands were less than the name ones ofcourse. I spotted a makeup remover that I couldn't by pass. They were Up&Up makeup remover cleaning towelettes. You got 30 towelettes for under 3 bucks. I had to get them. When I tried them that same night I couldn't believe how good it removed my eye makeup. Without rubbing so hard like I had imagined all the makeup came off quickly. I fell in love with my new makeup remover.

Yesterday while I was at Rite Aid. I had spotted an Almay eye makeup remover on clearance and decided to give it a try. I thought this would be a great chance to compare the both. So I did last night. Let me tell you there are noticeable differences. Pictures can really tell a story. Lol.
 This picture shows the Almay at the left side and the Target brand on the right.

Product #1: Almay eye makeup remover. Results....well the picture says a whole lot. The top is my eye makeup I have had on all day. No makeup proof here. I used a cotton ball to remove the makeup. It did an ok job with the eyeshadow but when it came down to removing the mascara it didn't do such a good job. I had black smears all over my eye area. Perhaps I should have tried the eye makeup remover with a differnt cotton product. But the way I felt it, the Almay eyemakeup remover felt a little too oily for me.
Sooooo....Let's see what the Up&Up did.

It came to the rescue! =) The top left picture is the end result of the Almay. The bottom left is how much of what the Almay didn't remove that the Up&Up makeup remover did. End result is to the right.

With this said, enough has been said that I will end up sticking to the Up&Up makeup remover. It does such a better job at removing makeup. And as you clearly see the mess the store brand product pickeup up after the name brand. I'm officially convinced.

Hello Kitty Head Shaped Pendant Chain Necklace Review

I'm 24 years of age and I'm going to be honest, the last time I was into buying Hello Kitty stuff was when I was in the 9th grade. I like buying stuff for cheap on Amazon it's the best place to get anything and everything. Especially fashion jewelry. I was browsing around the site when I came across this Head Shaped Hello Kitty necklace on amazon. Looked cute since I enjoy wearing fashion jewelry a lot so I thought why not. After all it's only $0.01 plus $2.99 shipping. List price for this necklace is $29.99, but it's only $3.00 bucks. I knew that if I didn't really like it I could always hand it down to my 5 year old niece.
A few weeks after receiving it, I decided to wear it today with my outfit. I thought perfect opportunity. I had gone to the dentist, I went shopping and I had lunch with my boyfriend. Long story short I received a lot of compliments......from little girls ha-ha. Hey point is little girls love Hello Kitty. Not so many compliments from the ahem adults BUT I received compliments and that's all that matters! Lol. So here's how you can purchase yours. Go here to view the Hello Kitty Head Shaped Pendant Chain Necklace. Shipping is $2.99 but really be prepared to add that 1 cent to make it an even $3.00 bucks.
