Rimmell eye makeup remover Scandaleyes liner

Since I have three daughters, I have seen a lot of makeup products come and go in my household.  Many times the items don’t live up to their claims and aren’t worth the money I paid for them.  That’s why I am always willing to give my honest review in exchange for free products to try out.  I get to sample the items without spending any money out of pocket to find out if they are worth buying or not.  In my FrostyVoxBox, complements of Influenster, they sent me the Rimmel Just Let It Go gentle eye makeup remover and also a Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal eyeliner pencil in black.

The eyeliner pencil says that it is waterproof which is interesting.  I am not even sure if there is an eyepencil like that out there already.  Anyhow, after trying it out I can definitely say that it stays put better than other eyeliners.  It doesn’t smudge easily but it does still smudge.  I can see using this for defining lines but if you are looking for an eyeliner that blends easily, this is not it.  Interestingly, I was able to wipe the eyeliner off with just some plain water on my finger so I am not sure what makes this “waterproof” since it definitely isn’t. Bottom line:  a good eyeliner that stays put and doesn’t smudge easily (but is NOT waterproof)

The makeup remover states that it is “gentle”.  I don’t wear a lot of makeup on my eyes.  I am a mascara and eyeliner kind of girl so it’s not like there was a ton of stuff to take off.  I usually just use baby oil and a tissue to remove my makeup.  When I tried this remover, the fact that it was “oil free” just made it feel more difficult to take the makeup off.  Like it was actually drying to my skin. It did not make the skin around my eyes feel smooth and soft and cared for.  It also made my eyes sting. Bottom line:  I did not like this remover at all and will be sticking with baby oil and a tissue.

Here at my house, between the two cats and four people, every once in a while I will notice a urine odor either near the litter box or in one of the bathrooms.  I have tried just about everything I could think of to get rid of the odor to no avail.  Then I read somewhere about a very cheap, easy, effective and quick way to get rid of that urine smell.

All you need is an empty spray bottle and some wintergreen scented rubbing alcohol. You can find this alcohol in the first aid section of just about any store.  It will be right next to the regular rubbing alcohol.

Put a mixture of half water and half wintergreen alcohol in the spray bottle.  Clean the toilet (or litter box area or where ever) with this mixture.  If there is a trash can or anything else near the toilet, clean under that too (and also under the litterbox if you are cleaning the cat area).   For good measure, once the area is cleaned, I spray some more of the mixture on the area and let it air dry.  This trick never fails!
