Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

eraseTone, texture, dullness, blotchiness, and brown spots – Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream claims to address all of these concerns. It’s star ingredient is the total soy complex, which harnesses the power of beneficial soy as well as Vitamin  B3.  We tried this cream and thought its greatest strength was that it’s non-irritating. It can be hard to find a night cream that is great for brown spots and texture that doesn’t aggravate sensitive skin. It’s a great moisturizer and isn’t too greasy. That being said, you won’t get extreme results when it comes to brown spots. However it seems to make an improvement on complexion overall. At $16.99 we think this is a pretty good bargain, and even more so for those with sensitive skin.

Tip: Did you know that soy is great for people with combination skin? It has the ability to moisturize dry areas while increasing oiliness in other areas!

Vaseline Total Moisture® Spray & Go Moisturizer

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

eraseThere are now products that have copied the concept, but when Vaseline Total Moisture Spray & Go Moisturizer first came out it seemed like the neatest product in the world. We tried this new lotion, which is sprayed on and is absorbed in seconds. Since spray on sunblocks can be sticky, we expected this to be sticky too but it actually wasn’t. Another surprise was the way it sprayed. It seemed like this lotion might be annoying to use and get the bathroom floor covered with lotion. However, this has a direct stream so you more so spray a very thick line down your legs and arms and rub it in. Another assumption that you may make about this lotion is that since it’s a spray it won’t moisturize that well. This lotion is more lightweight since it’s sprayed on, so if you’re into thick lotions you’ll find it too watery. But the good news is that it does a decent job and is about on the level of a regular lotion for normal skin. All in all, if you’re in a rush or don’t have very dry skin you’ll love this product. If you do have very dry skin, you might like this product as a touch up lotion to use throughout the day.

Tip: Did you know your skin is the largest organ of your body? Keep it healthy from the inside out by eating Vitamins B and C, eggs, milk, carrots, mango, kale, and pumpkin.

Dark and Lovely 6 Week Anti-Reversion Cream Serum

Sunday, February 23rd, 2014

erase2There is a lot of attention on how to care for natural curls. However, there are still great new product being offered for relaxed hair. For instance, Dark and Lovely just came out with their 6 Week Anti-Reversion Cream Serum, which ‘prevents curls, kinks, and waves for up to 6 weeks in-between relaxing’. This product essentially works by blocking humidity, so however you heat styled your hair is how it will stay! We thought this product was effective and also let a tester try it with natural hair. Interestingly, it was more impactful as a product to prevent frizz on natural curls than on heat styled relaxed hair. Either way, it’s a pretty neat product. But the results aren’t quite as dramatic as what you see on the front of the box. It lessens the effect of humidity but doesn’t completely stop it.  As long as your hair isn’t fine or thin, those with out of control frizz can benefit from this product regardless of ethnicity.

Tip: When you use relaxers blow drying AND flat ironing your hair is overkill. Try wrapping your hair and then using an old-fashioned hood dryer to dry your hair, then flat ironing for extra polish (with heat protectant spray of course).

Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Night Moisturizer

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

erase2In the past there was an emphasis on treating wrinkles and fine lines. Now the emphasis is more so on evening skin tone. One of the many products that promises to do just that is the Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Night Moisturizer. It has proven ingredients such as Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Retinol. But the glucose complex is what makes Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer different. The glucose complex actually gives a boost to the retinol. According to the box results appear in one week. We did notice more clarity and even tone in one week. However, for very dark spots this product needs a few weeks, and the results are more of a slow evolution. In general, for a non-prescription product it’s pretty good. Although this product is supposed to be gentle enough for daily use, one of our testers with sensitive skin found it to be a little drying and irritating. As with any retinol product, those with sensitive skin can benefit from gradually introducing the product to the skin instead of suddenly using it daily. We also found that Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer pairs really nicely with other moisturizers. You get the refined pores and improved complexion but not the dryness.

Tip: Hyperpigmentation is commonly caused by sun damage, and products like these can make your skin more vulnerable. Protect your results and prevent more damage by wearing sunscreen if you’re not already while treating your skin.

Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

eraseThe look of lip gloss is pretty much the same regardless of the brand. Where you really feel the difference is the feel of the lip gloss and how long it lasts. At $16, Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss is a bit more expensive than drug store brands. However, it goes on nicely and isn’t annoyingly sticky. We tried the Sugarbomb shade, which we imagine would be flattering on most skin tones.

Tip: Instead of reapplying lipstick, just put on lipstick in the morning and then add lip gloss throughout the day as needed. The lipstick will give you a great base of color to start with, and you won’t get a cakey look from a bunch of touch ups.
