Got2b Anti-Frizz Shine Serum

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Now that the weather is getting warmer, humidity is on the way. We tried Got2b’s Anti-Frizz Shine Serum to see how it did with frizz and it thought it worked pretty well. Since this product has conditioning agents, it makes it a bit different from other silicone based products. Our favorite way to use this serum was to use it to make sleek ponytails. By using it as a finishing product, it helps prevent annoying flyaways and frizz. This is a very thick product, so a little goes a long way. For a ponytail, we thought it was best to use a dime size amount, rub our hands together, and then use them to smooth the front. You’ll also want to make sure you apply evenly; you definitely don’t want globs of shine here and there! We think this product is great for those who have thick or very frizzy hair. If you consider your hair thin, Anti-Frizz Shine Serum may weigh your hair down.

NYX Round Lipstick

Monday, March 12th, 2012

The current hot makeup trend right now is hot pink lips. We saw the perfect en trend shade at Ulta for just $3.99 from NYX Cosmetics (we caught their buy 1 get 1 50% off sale). The shade we found is 639 Eucalyptus, and it has the perfect blend of pigment and moisture. It’s a true lipstick, so it has a creamy texture and gives saturated color, while at the same time it wears for hours without drying out. According to their website, NYX Round Lipstick has a ‘mineral based emollient formula’. There are a lot of great lipsticks on the market, but we think this is one of the best for quality vs. price.

CVS Dual-Sided Facial Cleansing Pads

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

It’s always neat when a store brand comes out with something great. We are big fans of cleansing cloths here, our favorite being Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. They save your washcloths/electronic cleanser from your makeup and come in handy when you don’t have the energy to wash your face at night. However, if you are reluctant to buy more than one cleanser for your face, we recommend CVS’s Dual-Sided Facial Cleansing Pads. These are made to work in conjunction with whatever facial cleanser you choose. We really liked using it with Burt’s Bees Sensitive Cleanser – since it’s so gentle you need to buy separate product if you want to exfoliate. However with the CVS cleansing pads you don’t have to. Admittedly, it’s more affordable to buy the cleansing pads than cleansing towelettes; they are only $3.29 on the CVS website for 45 pads. We loved the texture of our skin after using the pads and felt like we got a better clean than the old-fashioned way. This is especially useful for those who have combination skin; you can use the textured size to get rid of dry skin spots without exfoliating your whole face.

Dr. LeWinn by Kinerase Lift & Resculpt Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

If you’re sensitive to anti-aging products with acids, you may want to try Dr. LeWinn by Kinerase Lift & Resculpt Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream. Made for all skin types, this cream works by supporting collagen production and hydrating your skin. We really liked that there is no heavy fragrance – a must for those with sensitive skin. And it’s not greasy at all! Lift & Resculpt Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream promises to lift, contour, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. After using it for awhile we did notice that our skin looked visibly plumper (this helped a lot for smile lines).  However, we didn’t see the effects of lifting and contouring as much.

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.
