At Bliss the other day, my friend Jen insisted that I pick up a bottle of her holy grail eye makeup remover, Bliss Lid+Lash Wash ($14).
Infused with soothing chamomile extract, it’s a gentle, no-rinse gel makeup remover for erasing makeup from the eyelid, lash and lip area. I’ve been using it for a couple days now and can see why Jen’s obsessed.
The oil-free formula removes everything — even waterproof makeup! — and does it fast, without stripping my skin or stinging my eyes. I’ve noticed that after using it my eyes look less puffy, too. I wonder if that’s the chamomile extract at work, hmm…

Price: $14 for a 4.2-oz bottle
Use: An oil-free, non-irritating gel makeup remover for eyes and lips
Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
I like that it’s a gel. The consistency keeps it from spilling all over the place, and I can even see myself using this in cramped quarters.
The best part is the price! It costs half as much as Decleor Eye Makeup Remover Gel ($28), an effective but much more expensive gel makeup remover that I’d been lovin’ on until Jen suggested this. Yay for saving moolah!
Viva la vino
Yesterday El Hub and I drove the 40 miles north to Napa Valley to celebrate our third wedding anniversary with a few hours of wine tasting and walking around. We stopped to have lunch in Yountville, one of the small towns up there, at a place called Bistro Jeanty.
The food was lick-yo-fingers delicious! I had two dishes — a green bean salad and their filet of sole with lemons and capers. I gobbled both up with a quickness and even stole some of El Hub’s chicken and mushroom stew (in a bacon-red wine sauce, freaking yum!).
Just thinking about it now makes me drool…
I think it’s funny to post pictures of food…
But I couldn’t resist…
If you’re ever in wine country, you could do a lot worse than Bistro Jeanty. It’s not too expensive, and they do take walk-ins, but try to make reservations for the patio, which is covered and has plenty of shade.
Yountville, like a lot of the small towns in Napa Valley, is a relaxing and romantic way to spend a few hours on a sunny afternoon.
