Tone Moisturizing Cocoa Butter Body Wash

erase3Everyone knows that cocoa butter is great for the skin. However, with such a distinct smell if you don’t care for it, it’s hard to ignore. Tone’s Moisturizing Cocoa Butter Body Wash is infused with mango, papaya, and Vitamin E, so it has a pleasant, fruity fragrance. We recommend this for people who don’t like the smell of cocoa butter but want its benefits. This body wash has a thick consistency, but it’s not quite as creamy as some moisturizing body washes such as Dove Nutrium. It lathers and rinses well and it doesn’t leave your skin dry at all. However, if you’re skin is extremely dry you may want a richer body wash.

Tip: Want to make a homemade body scrub? Try using 1 cup of full fat plain yogurt, ½ a cucumber, and 2 tablespoons of sea salt. Rub the mixture on dry skin before your shower to soothe and exfoliate at the same time!

Jane Cosmetics

erase2Do you remember Jane Cosmetics? It seemed to be fading into relative obscurity until recently — with its re-launched collection in over 500 Ulta stores (65 more in October). As always, Jane Cosmetics will remain a bargain brand. There will be 120 new products including pH adjusting stain gloss, eye primer, multi-colored pressed powder, and BB cream. If you like freebies, check out the Ulta online gift with purchase promotion the week of September 9th.  So why the re-launch? Jane Cosmetics got a new CEO this year, Lynn Tilton, and she is in the process of revitalizing the brand.

Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Soothing Moisturizer

eraseSince we’re big fans of Neutrogena’s Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser, we decided to try their Ultra Gentle Soothing Moisturizer. While the cleanser was way more impressive, the Ultra Gentle Soothing moisturizer was pretty good. Similar to Aveeno facial moisturizer, it contains Feverfew to calm down the skin. It’s not fragrance free, but they’ve managed to include a fragrance that is easy on sensitive skin. Texture wise, it is a creamy lotion that goes on very smoothly and works great under foundation. As promised, Ultra Gentle Soothing Moisturizer is completely non-irritating and really improves the skin hydration. However it would be nice if there were an option without SPF for those with skin irritated by sunscreen. We think it’s most suitable for dry to combination skin. If you have oily skin, the best moisturizer we’ve tried so far is Olay Long Live Satin Finish Moisture Lotion.

Tip: Do you have sensitive skin? Try using a gentle, fragrance free detergent and fabric softener. Even a great skincare regimen can be defeated by harsh chemicals left behind on your washcloths.

Maybelline Eye Studio® Master Duo 2-in-1 Glossy Liquid Liner

eraseMaybelline has created a liquid eyeliner that is actually simple to use. You can make wide or thin lines depending on what side you use. To make this product better, we thought it would be nice if there was some sort of control how much eyeliner goes on the applicator, similar to mascara. We loved the versatility of this eyeliner, but our favorite part was how well the eyeliner stayed. You can literally rub your eyes and it won’t smudge! It removes with regular makeup removing towelettes – plain soap and water isn’t enough. The eyeliner tends to come off almost like tape in one full strip.

Tip: When removing liquid eyeliner, pressing a makeup remover pad on your eyelids for even just a few seconds can make a big different!
