Quick and Soothing Makeup Removal For the Busy Mom

The holidays are full of so many good things: good friends, good food, good parties, good cheer. The holidays are also just full in general, and if you take a look at my calendar you will see what I mean. December is a special time of year, but usually, I’m running around like a crazy person with Rio strapped to my chest. Between taking care of the kids, going to the office, attending events, and squeezing in fun holiday traditions like going to the DUMBO tree lighting, I occasionally start to slack off in the self-care department.

Sometimes at the end of the day, I’m too tired to even take my makeup off. London must have heard me complaining about this, or maybe she was frightened by early morning raccoon eyes, because she got me a sweet, early Christmas gift that was actually perfect for me. LS came into my room with a stack of Kleenex® Facial Cleansing products. She told me she knew I was too tired to take care of my skin, and that this will help make it easier. “And look, Mommy, the packages have blue and purple!” She’s all about the aesthetic.

Thanks to the thoughtfulness of LS, I’ve started using the Kleenex® Facial Cleansing’s Very Merry Cleansing Collection, and it really makes skincare effortless at the end of the day. The cleansers are so gentle on my skin and contain a pro-vitamin complex that leaves me feeling radiant (even after a marathon Monday). After the kids are in bed, all I have to do is grab a cleansing wipe and with one swipe across my face, I’m makeup free. As soon as my head hits the pillow, I’m zonked out, but I wake up with a smudge-free pillowcase and fresh skin. I got the details from hubby, assuming London didn’t order this with some kind of secret credit card, and he told me it was all only $25, plus free shipping. Such a great deal for a full skincare collection!

The collection comes with:

Cotton Soft Pads

Daily Cleansing Cushions Dispenser

Eye Makeup Remover Dispenser

Exfoliating Cushions Dispenser

Facial Cleansing Wipes Dispenser

If you’ve got a busybody on your list with a reputation for pushing self-care aside, this is a great idea for a thoughtful holiday gift! Or if you find yourself skipping the makeup removing routine after a long day, you might just want to pencil it in on your own list.

Let the skincare merriment commence!
