Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Radiant Lotion

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

erase3Cocoa butter has always been a go to ingredient for people with very dry skin. Vaseline has just introduced their Total Moisture Cocoa Radiant Lotion, which has cocoa butter as well as ingredients to make the moisture go deeper than the outer layer of skin. This is a bit lighter than other cocoa butter body treatments, such as those by Palmer. However, we were pleased to see that the lotion gave long lasting moisture. We weren’t huge fans of the scent, but this is an excellent formula for those who want a lot of moisture without a heavy feel. We’re also pretty excited to try their newest product – Spray & Go Moisturizer.

Tip: If you have extremely dry skin and lotion doesn’t seem to do the trick, try putting on lotion and then use a light layer of gel oil on top. The oil will keep all the moisture from evaporating from your skin.

Blavia Skincare – Contour Collection

Monday, February 25th, 2013

erase3Recently, we tried the Blavia Contour Collection from the new brand Blavia Skincare. The premise behind this collection is to prevent skin aging – not just treat it. Even better, this line is for the body, which is unique since most anti-aging lines are for the face. The Contour Collection has Marine Collagen, Vitamins A, B, C, and E, and antioxidants from Green Tea and Grape Seed extracts.  This collection is called Contour as it boosts natural collagen production and strengthens the skins natural barrier, providing a healthier contour.

Contour Shower Gel: Like the other products in the Contour Collection, this gel has a light, fresh fragrance. It’s clean-rinsing and lathers very well.

Contour Scrub: If you want your moisturizer to work well, you need to get rid of dead skin cells. This scrub is for the entire body, but it’s very gentle. The exfoliating particles are mild enough where you could use it every day. This is especially great for people whose skin can’t tolerate harsh exfoliants.

Contour Moisturizer: This is a lightweight moisturizer that you will love if greasy lotions tend to bother you. We think that this moisturizer will especially be in demand during the summer, when thick lotions aren’t as necessary. However, if you have extremely dry skin this lotion may not be heavy enough for you.

After using all three products together we found that our skin felt a lot softer and healthier overall. It’s hard to tell if a product is preventing aging or not, but there have been many studies that show that antioxidants are key in preventing environmental and sun damage (the biggest contributors to aging skin).

Olay Complete All Day Moisturizer with Sunscreen – Normal Skin

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

Olay has been known for their moisturizers for quite some time. We tried their All Day Moisturizer with Sunscreen for normal skin, which has vitamins E, B3, & C. Although this formula was for normal skin, we thought it was moisturizing enough to get away with for dry skin as well. We really loved what it did for the texture of our skin, and it’s always nice to have sunscreen and moisturizer in one step. We all know that we’re supposed to put sunscreen on by itself, but how many of us really do it? At least with Olay you have a little protection. Although this product works wonderfully for normal and dry skin types, we found that for acne prone skin, it can cause break outs.

BareMinerals Naturally Luminous Daily Duo – Combination Skin

Monday, November 26th, 2012

Changing skincare brands can be quite a commitment since full size products can last for months. At Ulta, we found a 30 day supply of BareMinerals face wash and moisturizer. BareMinerals Naturally Luminous Daily Duo for combination skin contains their ActiveSoil Complex. The ActiveSoil Complex is actually extracted from real soil and contains minerals that benefit the skin. The cleanser also has fruit enzymes for thorough cleansing and exfoliation, avocado oil for hydration, and pomegranate for moisture balance. The moisturizer has anti-oxidants and plant ingredients that hydrate and protect the skin. We thought both products worked well. The Purifying Facial Cleanser is great at removing makeup and the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer has a neat, earthy scent. However, we don’t recommend this product for people with very sensitive skin.

Dremu Oil

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

Not all oil is bad for your skin. In fact, most skin types can truly benefit from it. We tried Dremu Oil, which is non-comedogenic. Dremu oil is made of 100% pure triple-refined emu oil. So where does this emu oil come from? It comes from emus, which are large flightless birds similar to ostriches. Their back has a thick fat pack where the oil is derived. On the Dremu website, it says that the emus are humanely treated. However, we wonder if the fat can be taken away from the bird while it is still living, and if so, if it’s painful? The lure of Dremu oil is that it claims to address so many skin problems; burns, acne, wrinkles, rosacea, etc. As promised the product quickly absorbs in the skin, so we didn’t have a greasy feel at all, and actually felt comfortable to use it during the day. However, considering its thick consistency, it didn’t moisturize as much as we would hope. However, we did like what it did for the texture of our skin. It’s a decent product, but only if you don’t have very dry skin.
