Thanks to POND’S for sponsoring today’s discussion. All stories and opinions are my own.
I am probably the laziest when it comes to my nightly skincare routine. I’ve been this way for most of my life. I get really excited to take care of my skin for awhile and then my laziness creeps back in. It’s really bad because that means I end up sleeping in my makeup. (Shame on me!) And I typically have on a full face of makeup when I go to sleep. Especially this time of year when there are more holiday parties and office parties to attend.
POND’S®, the skincare brand trusted by generations of women for beautiful skin since 1846, offers an exceptional variety of skincare products that help women look their beautiful best. First made famous for its Cold Cream Cleanser more than 100 years ago, the POND’S® portfolio of classic beauty products also includes towelettes and facial moisturizers such as POND’S® Wet Cleansing Towelettes, POND’S® Dry Skin Cream and POND’S® Rejuveness, among others.

The Cold Cream Cleanser and Evening Soothe® towelettes are the perfect evening routine for me and my lazy ways. The combo of the two help pull all my makeup off and clean and moisturize my face at the same time. And it takes me less than 5 minutes. The perfect amount of time for taking care of my skin! (Now I do spend a lot more time on my skin in the morning…it’s just I’m super lazy at night.)
So here’s what I’ve been doing at night to make this happen within 5 minutes…
1. Using POND’S Cold Cream Cleanser, I apply it all over my face including my eyes to help get my eye makeup off.
2. Next I take the Evening Soothe® towelettes to wipe off all the Cold Cream Cleanser and my makeup. I use two towelettes. One for my face and then one for my lips and then to catch any additional makeup that I missed the first go-round.
3. And that’s it. Easy Peasy! Perfect for this lazy girl!
Once or twice a week, I’ll use the Exfoliating Renewal Towelettes if I don’t have on a ton of makeup so I can get the benefits from the exfoliators without a lot of makeup getting in the way. They’ll take off makeup too, but I like to use them after my makeup has been removed.
So I know that POND’S is able to take all of my makeup off even when I wear a full face of makeup. And by full face, I’m talking a primer/SPF, powder, blush, eye shadow, eye liner and mascara. I try and keep my makeup (my daily makeup) as natural looking as possible, but there are times when I like to play with different eye shadows to see what kind of look I can create.
What’s super impressive to me is that it can remove the Rockette’s makeup. If y’all have never been a performer, let me clue you in…the makeup worn on stage is incredibly over-exaggerated. It has to be so that your facial features can be seen and that you do not appear as if you are a ghost on stage. So lots and lots and lots of makeup is used to obtain the looks you see from your seat.
