Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser

Friday, February 24th, 2012

The best thing you can do for sensitive skin is keep its barrier intact. Unfortunately, sometimes this gets damaged with all of the chemical and manual exfoliators on the market. So even if you don’t have sensitive skin naturally, you may have inflamed skin if you’re using harsh cleansers or moisturizers with acids too often. We tried Burt’s Bees Sensitive Skin Facial Cleanser and were very pleased with the results. In only one week we saw a transformation in our skin – less redness and irritation, and a lot less dryness. Since this is a very gentle cleanser, you may want to take off your makeup first with makeup removing towelettes such as Neutrogena’s. We must warn that at first this product may feel like your skin has a film on it, and that may be because you’re accustomed to your skin being stripped of its natural moisture. Try it out for at least a week to see results. We recommend this for not only people with sensitive skin, but for those who have used harsh products and want to give their skin a break. If you have acne, we recommend alternating using this cleanser and your regular acne cleanser until you get the right balance. For instance, try using Sensitive Skin Facial Cleanser in the morning and your acne wash at night. Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser is not only 99% natural, it is also fragrance free and hypo-allergenic.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

We have a new favorite cleansing towelette brand! After seeing Neutrogena’s Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes in Allure magazine, we decided to give them a try. These towelettes truly remove ALL of your makeup effortlessly. You don’t have to make several passes to get everything off. This is not only great for when you’re too lazy to wash your face at night, it’s also great from saving your washcloths from heavy eye makeup. These cloths are soft and gentle on your skin and are actually a bit larger than Ponds Cleansing Towelettes. What we liked about Neutrogena over Ponds is that with Neutrogena there isn’t so much of a residue, so you can go without rinsing.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Intense Kajal EyeLiner

Monday, January 23rd, 2012

With eyeliner you can transform the shape and the size of your eyes. And when you want a dramatic look, waxy formulas can take some serious effort to show up on your skin. We tried Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Intense Kajal EyeLiner in Blackened Black since it was advertised to give intense color. This product saves time; you don’t have to line your eyes more than once to see great color. It’s a regular pencil that must be sharpened but the liner blends easily and goes on soft. On the downside, you need to be careful when using it on the lower rims of your eyes – you can get specks or smearing. Because the eyeliner is so intense, if you’re not a pro you may want to start out light at first and then press down harder as you get more comfortable. In short, we thought this $20 was great for smoky eyes but wish it flaked less.

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation

Friday, January 20th, 2012

Since foundation can truly transform the look of your skin, we certainly don’t judge anyone who’s willing to spend a lot on it. We tried Chanel’s latest foundation – Perfection Lumiere. At $55 it’s pricier then many of the foundations we review but we decided to give it a try. It has a very pleasant light fragrance which is a nice touch. Now, does it give you perfect skin like the model in the photo? We found that it does have a perfect mix of a natural finish with full coverage. In other words, you look like you’re not really wearing much makeup but your imperfections are covered. We think it’s most likely the finish to the makeup, which mimics the texture of skin (not too matte, not too dewy). Lumiere Foundation is also available in 20 shades, so more likely than not, they have a shade for you. This is a long-wearing foundation, but if you have oily skin, you may find this not to be so. This foundation doesn’t stop your face from being greasy. So if you have normal to dry skin, we think this is truly an amazing product! Also remember that department store makeup counters are happy to give samples (which is last for a few days to a week) so you can be completely sure before buying. If you have oily skin and want full coverage that lasts all day, we recommend Estee Lauder’s Doublewear foundation.  The only thing that stops it from being perfect is that it’s a bit drying, which is a good thing for oily skin.

La Roche-Posay Mela-D Serum

Monday, January 16th, 2012

The primary purpose of La Roche-Posay’s Mela-D Serum Anti-Dark Spot Concentrate is to correct skin discoloration and even skin complexion. However, what we loved to most is how it improves the texture of your skin. Sometimes you don’t realize how clogged your pores are until you use a product like this. The product contains kojic acid and glycolic acid. This is one of the milder products we’ve tried with glycolic acid so it’s a good product for those with sensitive skin. The directions called for applying once a day during morning or evening, but if in the morning apply a sunscreen with a SPF of at least 15. In our experience, you get the most benefit out of using this product at night under your favorite moisturizer. It seems to make your moisturizer more effective. At almost $60 this drugstore product isn’t cheap, but in our opinion the product quality is as good as high end skincare lines such as Natura Bisse.  We like to use this 3 times a week to maintain the great effects this serum has on our skin.
