Makeup Monday - Daily Facial Towelettes

Welcome to Makeup Monday on Julie's Lifestyle.  Each Monday I will post about a certain type of makeup, nail polish, face or hair product etc.  It will be a fun place to come visit about anything to do with beauty.  


Week 24 - Kirkland Daily Facial Towelettes



Hi friends, I hope you all enjoyed your summer and Labor Day Weekend.  I totally enjoyed my summer and it just went by to fast for me.  I am so happy to be starting up my Makeup Monday again and welcome to Week 24 of the series.  

I used to use Neutrogena Makeup Remover Towelettes to remove all traces of my makeup but I was paying $7 for a 25 count package.  I really liked the Neutrogena brand but I'm a member of Costco and I wanted to try out the Kirkland Daily Facial Towelettes.


I really love the Kirkland Daily Facial Towelettes and they take off all of my makeup and it's gentle and not irritating around my eye area.  I use regular mascara and it takes it off easily and the rest of my makeup with one sheet.  It says that you do not need to rinse but I always clean my face with Clinque cleanser afterwards.  The towelettes are made with a mild formula that contains cucumber, chamomile flower extract, and aloe to remove all traces of makeup, oil and dirt.

In the box of Kirkland Daily Facial Towelettes you get 150 count all together in the box.  It contains (4) - 30 count flip top lid packs and (2) - 15 count travel packs for the price of $11.99 for the whole box.  That is a huge savings!  I usually split up the packs with my daughter and I feel happy that I know I'm saving a lot of money and still using a good product.

To see the link for the Kirkland Daily Facial Towelettes you can click HERE.

If it's not convenient to get to Costco than I suggest using the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Towelettes.

* Makeup Tip - Always remove all your makeup at night and wash your face with a facial cleanser.

What do you use to remove your makeup?

Thanks so much for stopping by this week for Makeup Monday and see you all next week.

A Book Accomplished!

Hi friends, I'm happy to say that I accomplished reading a book this summer.  I started reading back in the beginning of July the book The Paris Wife by Paula McLain.  Let me explain why it's been so long since I have read a book.  I love reading books but I don't seem to have much time to read anymore due to family, crocheting, knitting and blogging and watching TV!  I promised myself for the summer that I would read one book and finish it.  It felt really good to be reading again and I didn't want the book to end because I was enjoying it so much.  Lol!   






If you have not read the book yet I highly recommend it.  To quickly sum up the book, it's about Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley Richardson and their life in Paris in the 1920's.  To read more about the book click HERE.

I just started reading the book AND THEN THERE WERE NONE by Agatha Christie.  I love mystery books and this looks like it will be a good book.  This book was recommended to me to read by my daughter who had to read this book for school.  To read more about the book click HERE.


I am on a roll right now with reading and I do hope it won't take me a long to finish reading the book.  I will let you know what I thought of it when I'm done reading it.  

What book are you reading right now?

Take your asparagus and brush them with olive oil and then sprinkle salt and pepper on them to taste.  Grill for seven to eight minutes.  Done.


I hope you enjoy this easy way to make grilled asparagus the next time that you have a BBQ!  This would be perfect for Labor Day Weekend!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Wrap Up of California Vacation

Hi friends, I had such a good time on vacation in California and while we were there we went shopping.  We visited Downtown and 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica and to see the link you can click HERE.  Here are a few pictures of the shopping area that my daughter and I visited.  

If you are ever in this area you do not want to miss all the outdoor shopping and the streets are closed off from cars.  They had really cute topiary's in different shapes of animals in the middle of  the street too.



We also visited Universal Studios in Hollywood, California and to see the link you can click HERE.  Here are some photos I took while we were there.  If you visit you have to go on the Jurassic Park ride where you see life like dinosaurs and parts of the ride you can get splashed with water! 




We also got to see the area where they do the show Extra TV with Mario Lopez.




Here in the background you can see where they are applying makeup to Mario Lopez.




We also spent the day at Venice Beach, CA and we also walked the boardwalk too.  It was such a nice day at the beach.



Thanks for coming along with me on this California vacation, I had a great time sharing with you my photos.  I appreciate all your visits and comments too.  I can't wait to go back again.
