Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stain, Romantic

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

erase3If you’re looking for something different than the usual lip gloss or lipstick, then you may want to try Revlon’s ColorBurst Balm Stain. We tried this balm stain in Romantic, which does not go on nearly as dark as it looks. Since this is a combination of a lip stain and balm, it has a sheer color. However, the color lasts a lot longer than you would expect. To explain the texture, it’s as if you applied chapstick with the color intensity of a gloss and the longevity of a stain. Enter to win this product and more in our contest of the quarter!

bareMINERALS Perfecting Face Brush

Monday, July 14th, 2014

eraseSometimes the best products that you’ll ever use are the most obvious inventions. The new bareMINERALS Perfecting Face Brush is so neat, it begs the question, why haven’t all companies come out with brushes like this? The unique section inside the brush is what makes it great. Whatever foundation you pump into the brush stays put, instead of dripping down the brush, onto your sink, down your hand, etc. The brush is also a high quality. The bristles are soft enough that they feel great on your face, but stiff enough to retain the structure of the brush. We recommend cleaning your brushes at least once a week. However, if you’ve used some inexpensive brushes on the market, you know that the foundation causes the bristles to stiffen—leaving you with a streaky foundation look unless you clean it after every use. With the Perfecting Face Brush that doesn’t happen, so you can still wash just once a week. The one downside of this brush is also why it’s so great. Since the bristles are so dense and make it hard for the foundation to spill outside the brush, it also retains more makeup. To wash this brush, you’ll need to be thorough to ensure that all of the makeup is out. We suggest swirling the brush in your hand in soap while running it under water, then turning it upside down and running your fingers back and forth over the bristles under the water to get all the makeup out the center. At $28 this foundation brush may be more than you’re used to spending, but it’s definitely worth it.

Tip: To get a seamless look, use a circular motion to apply your foundation. You can put your concealer on first, then use the brush to blend the foundation over it.

RoC® MULTI CORREXION® 5 in 1 Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Friday, July 4th, 2014

eraseRoC® is a well-respected anti-aging drugstore brand, so we tried their MULTI CORREXION® 5 in 1 Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Why is it called 5 in 1? It’s supposed to fight discoloration, sagging, dryness, dull tone, and wrinkles. Fortunately, this product turned out to be a winner in particular with sagging, skin tone, and wrinkles. The product works because of HEXINOL technology. We looked it up and found out that it has molecules that improve aging, but not what it actually is. We’re curious to know what the actual ingredients are.

Garnier Clean+ Smoothing Cream Cleanser

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

erase2Since we tried Garnier Clean + Purifying Foam Cleanser and liked it, we wanted to try the cleanser for dry skin – Garnier Clean+ Smoothing Cream Cleanser. Fortunately, our tester with dry skin liked this cleanser as much as our tester with combination skin liked the Purifying Foam Cleanser. The Smoothing Cream Cleanser is great for dry skin since it has jojoba and macadamia oils. As you may already know, oil doesn’t always mean pore clogging. Including oil in this cleanser was ingenious because the oils dissolve your makeup. Those of you with dry skin know that cleansers for dry skin are typically gentle, and unfortunately gentle on makeup removal. You’ll like how it feels to get a thorough cleansing without stripping your skin. After washing dry skin, you have to reach immediately for moisturizer before your skin starts feeling tight. Smoothing Cream Cleanser gives you more time and leaves your skin feeling comfortable. Also, when you use water you’ll get a good lather, which is pretty unique for a creamy cleanser. The scent of this product (like all Garnier products) is refreshing, but we wonder if it may be too heavily fragranced for sensitive skin.

Tip: If you have dry skin, you know how important it is to drink enough water. But you can take it a step further and eat foods that are good for your skin as well. Try stocking up on salmon and avocado. Both are helpful to skin lipid layers!

TONI&GUY Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner for Damaged Hair

Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

eraseSome of the greatest beauty companies are across the pond. TONY&GUY was established by two brothers who founded their own salon in 1963. Their salons are now franchised and you can buy their hair products. We tried their Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner for Damaged Hair. These products are supposed to penetrate the hair shaft to revitalize damaged hair. With consistent use we noticed last hair breakage. However, if your hair is very dry you may want something more emollient. Since dry and damaged are hair issues that go hand in hand, we would have liked to see more moisture. If you’re not into heavily fragranced products, you’ll appreciate the subtle scent of the shampoo and conditioner.

Tip: Is your hair really damaged? The best thing to do is to trim damaged strands. But if you’re not willing to cut, try giving your hair a heat break and only using hot tools a couple times a week. Braids, pony tails, ballerina buns, sponge rollers…the possibilities are endless for heat free styles!
