Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Facial Lotion

Monday, December 9th, 2013

8687Weleda is an environmentally conscious brand that originated in Switzerland. We tried their Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing Facial Lotion which is all natural. It contains anti-oxidants, organic rosehip seed oil, and jojoba seed oil. The first thing we noticed was how good the product smelled. The light smell of organic roses on your face is very soothing. Since it’s an all natural product, we didn’t know how well this would do for smoothing fine lines. But this lotion exceeded our expectations. After about a week our skin was in better condition (it works wonders on pores) and fine lines appeared to be smoother. We also had a tester with sensitive skin – they were pleased to be able to use a scented product without the irritation.

Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

eraseAveeno used to only offer soap, bath products, and lotion. Now their product line has extended to dozens of products. One of their newest additions, Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream, has the ACTIVE NATURALS Total Soy complex, minerals, and an SPF of 30. We tried it and as promised found that it gave a nice glow. It blends really well on the skin as well. But what was surprising was that it stays on all day. Once you put it on you’re set for the rest of the day. If you have oily skin you’ll need a mattifying primer or powder on top of the BB Cream. But for other skin types, this is the perfect way to do something nice for your skin while getting a little bit of coverage.

Mustela Stretch Marks Intensive Action

Monday, November 25th, 2013

erase3Unfortunately, you don’t have to be pregnant to get stretch marks. We tried Mustela’s Stretch Marks Intensive Action Cream, which retails at about $42. Though more expensive than similar products at stores like Target and Ulta, it also comes up with studies to back up their claims. 96% of expectant mothers who used Stretch Marks Intensive Action did not develop stretch marks. The formula contains nourishing oils, peptides, alpha hydroxy acid, to name just a few of the many helpful ingredients it contains. So this goes further than simply moisturizing the skin. One tester tried it on older stretch marks and found it to be really effective. Of course they didn’t make them disappear, but there was a really impressive reduction in appearance. Another tester tried it on scars that were a bit more recent and that also gave nice results.  From what we’ve seen, it does seem believable that this cream could prevent the formation of stretch marks altogether.  Now if only they could come up with a product this effective for cellulite…

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

erase4Finally cool nail art that will work for the impatient and manicure skill challenged. Sally Hansen’s Magnetic Nail Color doesn’t require any design work at all. And it’s actually easier to use than stickers since you just brush the polish on. When you hover the magnet (included) over your polished nail, you get a really cool wavy pattern.

Tip: Put a very thin coat on first, then the 2nd coat has to be thick as the directions specify. If you don’t, the magnetic pattern won’t be as pronounced or won’t turn up at all.

CoverGirl + Olay Concealer Balm

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

eraseThe more blendable a concealer, the better. We tried CoverGirl’s concealer which contains a hydrating Olay serum. It goes on very smoothly, no dragging. It’s especially great for the eye area and has the opacity needed to cover dark circles. And since it has the Olay serum, you don’t have to worry about it settling into fine lines and wrinkles. In general, we thought it was a great buy.

Tip: Put concealer on underneath your foundation. That way you’ll have a more blended look.
