Cheapest Makeup Remover

After watching countless Makeup Geek videos on YouTube, it dawned on me that I should not spend $6.00 per box of makeup remover wipes. I visited my closest Wal-Mart and purchased baby wipes by Nice-Pak Products. For $0.98 I get 80 wipes taht are hypoallergenic, alcohol free, and unscented!!

I just used one post-gym workout and it is great. There is no scent, which I love. Since there is no alcohol, your skin won't dry out. I will keep packages in my gym bag, car, and bathrooms.

For heavy makeup, you want to use more than one. It will get a good amount of your makeup off before you wash your face, or use your Clarisonic Mia brush like me.

I love sharing these little helpful tips with you. Let me know what you swear by!

First spackle project

In an effort to get the house prepped for sale, I have to go around the house and patch up any holes. The deepest hole I have to cover is the one left by a door stop on my coat closet.

I purchased squeezable spackle at Lowe's. It goes on pink and dries white. I'm sure a woman created this product. It is brilliant! The only issue I had was that some pink liquid came out first, but it was easy to wipe up quickly.

I also purchased a small square of FibaTape, which is self-adhesive and goes over the hole before the spackle.

I also purchased a putty knife for applying the spackle.

Here is the door as it is drying.

And, a close up of the hole.

I will wait for this to dry white and reapply once or twice more. Then, I will sand it down. Lastly, I will paint over it if needed. It is not the most noticable spot on the door, but I want to do it right.

I'm thrilled that I tackled my first spackle job. Woohoo! Go me... go me...
