Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 BB Crème

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

eraseRepairs, strengthens, softens, shines, smoothes, moisturizes, protects, and detangles  – these are just some of the ten benefits that Pantente Pro-V says their Ultimate 10 BB Crème will give to your hair.  Although it says crème on the packaging, it’s not as thick as you might think. It has the texture of a very lightweight lotion. So if you have fine hair you can still use it, or at least on your ends. We felt like it definitely decreased hair breakage and detangled well, but if your hair is super dry you will need something more. Also, the best way to use this product is on damp hair, it may feel a little sticky if you use a lot of it on dry hair.

Tip: If you like waves this is the perfect product! It has the perfect amount of water content so if you use it at night with a braid or bun, you’ll wake up with gorgeous waves. A perfect time saver for getting ready in the morning!

Neutrogena Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes – Pink Grapefruit

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

If you have acne, then you know that salicylic acid is a key ingredient for keepieraseng blemishes at bay. We tried Neutrogena Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes which contains salicylic acid as well a grapefruit scent. The wipes work just as well as their regular ones in removing makeup, but it has the additional benefit of shrinking pores and clearing skin. The grapefruit fragrance in this product is strong, so if you don’t care for the scent it can be distracting.

Carmex Healing Lotion

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Since Carmex makes such an excellent lip balm, we expected their new healing lotion to be just as effective. We tested it on sunburned, peeling skin to really put it to the test. After exfoliating then using it, no more flaking! We found Carmex Healing Lotion to be extremely effective and worthy of being in the same product line as their lip balm. The formula contains aloe and vitamin E as well as a skin protectant (Allantoin). Since the lotion worked so well it made us question why all lotions don’t have Vitamin E and aloe. The scent is more unisex and is reminiscent of cocoa butter. If you’re into fragranced lotion you may not like the scent, but you’ll at least like how it works.

Suave Cucumber Melon Body Lotion

Saturday, June 8th, 2013

erase3Since we’re huge fans of Bath & Body Works lotion, we tried Suave’s interpretation of Cucumber Melon.  Suave’s Cucumber Melon lotion delivers on its promise of ease of absorption and long lasting fragrance. The drawback is that you don’t get the same moisturizing as you do with Bath & Body Works. Their formula contains shea butter and vitamins – Suave’s does not. The verdict? This product is a great lightweight lotion, but it’s not moisturizing enough for dry skin.

Tip: Do you have skin that’s so dry it’s flaking? It may be a light sunburn. Makes sure your using sunscreen or at least use a lotion with an SPF and see if it helps.

Garnier’s Ultra-Lift 2-in-1 Wrinkle Reducer

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

Women do drastic things in the everlasting quest for beauty, from getting a rhinoplasty to getting a face-lift, looking good can take some investment. For those not ready to go to a doctor and just want a little help, ingredients like hyaluronic acid, retinol, and hydroquinone are all proven to be effective for great looking skin. We recently tried Garnier’s Ultra-Lift 2-in-1 Wrinkle Reducer which contains retinol. Both a serum and a moisturizer, this product is said to bring a significant improvement in lines, wrinkles, and firmness within 2 weeks. Although Ultra-Lift 2-in-1 Wrinkle Reducer has a moisturizer, we still found the product to be a bit drying so we recommend using it with an oil such as Bio Oil if you have dry skin. We also didn’t like the product’s scent too much but it gets a high score on the important part – giving younger looking, healthy skin. Other pros were ease of absorption and its non-greasy texture. We also loved the product packaging, the helix structure of the cream looks cool, and it’s designed so you don’t miss a drop.
