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.

** I received these products for free to test and review

After having four kiddos, I know most of the “tricks of the trade” for getting good deals on clothing for kids.  The number one, hands down, cheapest method of purchasing kids clothes is to find thrift stores that have “stuff a bag” deals  (of course getting free hand-me-downs is cheaper, but I am talking just about purchasing clothing).

I love those places!  Ususally they are run by charities or churches that just don’t have the manpower to handle all the clothing donations so they just dump them in a bin or on a table and let YOU sort thru it!  This is a GREAT way to find some wonderful deals!

I have gotten lots of tee shirts for Ben this way (Iron Man, Batman, Spiderman, etc)!  He loves them all!  I have found clothing for myself and my daughters this way too. 

Usually I can fit about 12 items into one bag.  My favorite place that does this charges $3 per bag, so I am essentially paying about 25 cents per item of clothing.  Don’t forget that this is a good way to find sewing notions too! You can remove and reuse zippers, buttons, and if the clothing item is large enough you might even be able to reuse the cloth!
