Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream

Monday, May 21st, 2012

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream, by Galderma Laboratories, was specially formulated for people with sensitive and dry skin. This cream particularly benefits people with eczema and psoriasis, but is also great for anyone with dry skin.  We loved how well it moisturized our hands, feet and elbows. The cream doesn’t feel greasy or oily at all and is fragrance free (which is awesome for sensitive skin). The cream is a little pricey when compared to other lotions at about $12 for a 16 oz. tub, but its quality helps make up for the price.

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is different from other anti-aging creams in that it promises not only to diminish wrinkles, but also to tighten. This cream is said to firm sagging prone areas, smooth skin’s surface, and restore elasticity. We tried it and loved how luxurious the cream felt (which isn’t greasy at all). We thought the fragrance was a bit strong, but it’s also available fragrance-free. We found that it did all that it promised without getting in the way of our makeup. It’s a wonderful moisturizer and gives the skin a more youthful look. Of course, there’s no drastic ‘lift’, but it’s our belief that radical changes mostly come from a doctor’s visits. This is more expensive than many drug store moisturizers since it’s over $20, but the quality is comparable to department store brands.

Biore Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser

Friday, May 11th, 2012

If you have the conundrum of having both oily and dry skin, we are sure you’ll love Biore Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser. This product claims to remove all impurities while leaving 90% of skin’s natural moisture. We tried it and found that it really does work. It removes all of the makeup and dirt, but you don’t have the dry, tight skin that some cleansers leave behind. If you have oily skin you will probably like this as well, as even oily skin needs moisture, and will product more oil if dehydrated. We also discovered this cleanser works great with electric cleansers are silicone scrublets (such as the one that comes with L’Oreal’s 360° Cleansers). We’re not surprised that this is a great product though since their pore strips are an all time favorite.

Nuance Salma Hayek Exfoliating Body Cleansing Scrub

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

When we read the article on Salma Hayek in Marie’s Claire’s @Work Magazine, we just had to try her line of beauty products, Nuance Salma Hayek. The entire Nuance Salma Hayek line is exclusive to CVS and paraben free, and even better – it’s not tested on animals.  We tried the Exfoliating Body Cleansing Scrub in Macademia Nut, which is not inexpensive for a drugstore brand (it’s $8.99). What surprised us is that it’s a very creamy formula, and it doesn’t actually feel like scrub. This scrub is said to work to remove dead skin cells from the macademia nut oil and the microbeads working together. If you really want to SCRUB your skin, we suggest trying this with a loofa. We really like that the scent is light and doesn’t compete with whatever perfume you wear for the day. Nuance Salma Hayek also offers products in Cosmetics, Skincare, Haircare, and Body.

CoverGirl LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Removing waterproof mascara can be pretty annoying so we were intrigued when we saw CoverGirl’s LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara which claims to stay put for 24 hours, but it’s not waterproof. The mascara brush is definitely huge, and the nubs on the brush really allow you to coat your lashes. However, this is a formula that is best in one layer. If you try to do multiple coats of mascara you’ll get clumps. The look is volumized of course, and you should really wiggle the wand upon application to prevent your lashes from sticking together. After some trial and error we loved the look. However, this is not a mascara that’s going to easily wash away. We suggest using our favorite, Neutrogena Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes, by using about 3 swipes. If you don’t remove this mascara properly at night it will definitely travel under you’re the eye area by morning (a little bit of a raccoon look). Our verdict is that  this is a great mascara for when you’re going out, but requires more effort for makeup removal than every day users might expect.
