I am so bad about washing my face every night. It always seems like so much work...doesn't it? These days putting on my makeup is a big enough feat and by the end of the day I seriously just want to get in bed.... just thinking about cleaning my face makes me exhausted. This is bad, I know, and my face suffers, my lingering postpartum hormones don't help much either, the ones that make me sweat like crazy. I don't think I have ever had so much sweat ... yet I don't think I have ever mothered a tween, chased a four year old around and taken care of an infant all at the same time either.
Last week I was sent the Neutrogena Oil-Free Pink Grapefruit line to try, and actually made an effort to dedicate just a small amount of time to my face. I tried both the facial cleanser and scrub, went to bed this week with clean and refreshed skin, and woke up free and clear of yesterdays makeup and overnight breakouts. Yay! I also tried and completely fell in love with their Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes. They are the best for busy mornings! I was able to grab a wipe and clean my face all while eating breakfast, changing diapers, looking for my car keys and running around trying to get everyone out of the house and in the car. The wipes have a very yummy scent to them and left my skin feeling really soft. They are also perfect post working out or nights when washing your face is just too difficult...(:
The end of the year is flying by and time seems to just slip away during this season, stress and breakouts accompany and I usually dedicate less and less time for myself. This end of the year season along with not stressing so much over gifts and spending more time with family I want to spend more time taking care of me. I making a promise to myself to take the time out to wash my face every night, use a scrub regularly and use extra moisturizer to keep my skin looking healthy.
What are your facial cleansing habits like? Have you tried the Neutrogena Grapefruit Line?
