Take it all off!
Never go to sleep with your makeup on again! On Saturdays after a late night out at El Quinto Pino (the newish wine bar from the geniuses behind Tia Pol), all I feel like doing is crawling into bed with the latest issue of Nylon and reading myself to sleep. Often I'll have mascara, eye liner, bronzer, blush, and lipstick on, all of which can potentially stain my satin pillowcases. More importantly, when I wake up on Sunday morning I look like Willem de Kooning's Woman, I. Neutrogena's Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes are a godsend for Saturday night situations. With one cashmere-soft cloth, Houdini-like I can make the day's residue disappear in one quick swipe, and there's no need to rinse. I like these cloths so much that I've taken to using them a few times a week. My pores actually appear to have shrunk, and I would almost swear that they are keeping me from breaking out. There's truly something magic about this make-up remover.
