When you’re busy rocking the stage on Broadway, you don’t have time to worry about your beauty routine. Actress Christy Altomare is more interested in focusing on her run in Anastasia then trying to figure out the best makeup remover. Luckily, she’s already got that covered with the perfect makeup remover on hand to keep her skin looking flawless and feeling great. Altomare recently sat down with Vogue to dish on her favorite makeup remover, and we can’t wait to try it out — especially since it’s only $5!

Altomare is no strange to the hustle and bustle of theater life; the actress has appeared in Mamma Mia!Spring Awakening, and is currently enjoying rave reviews in the titular role of Anastasia. So the actress knows all too well how important it is to take care of her skin between performances. And when it comes to beauty products, Altomare wants something effective and inexpensive. She told Vogue,

“I use a strong lip stain at the end of act two so my leading man doesn’t have to worry about a red lip! The one product that really works for me is Neutrogena’s oil-free makeup remover. I put some on a tissue and it takes all my makeup right off!”

We love that a drugstore makeup remover is tough enough to handle theater makeup, but gentle enough to keep from wrecking your skin.

Neutrogena has always prided itself on inexpensive but effective skincare products, and this one sounds like a real winner. And if it’s good enough for the skin of a Broadway star like Christy Altomare, then sign us up!
