Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips – Product Review

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

Biore-StripsSince I’ve noticed that charcoal skincare products have started to become all the rage recently I decided to give these Biore Pore Strips a test. Lets face it, everyone wants their pores to be smaller—or invisible—so here’s one beauty blogger’s two cents on these charcoal pore strips.

I was careful to follow the instructions as it had been a while since I had used any type of pore strips. These ones require you to put them on and add a bit of water to moisten. I left them on for the allotted time – 10 minutes, and everything was good. However, when it came time to remove the strip it was very difficult to get off, and it left dark a black charcoal mess on my face. To be honest, that was almost enough for me to throw the rest of the box away. But I did notice a little improvement in my skin. My pores did look better temporarily. But since it was such a process and hassle from beginning to end, I will be continuing my search for a good pore shrinking product.

Product: Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips

Description: “Remove weeks (yes – weeks!) worth of pore gunk with just one strip. With natural charcoal, pore strips suck out oil and blackhead breeding impurities, leaving skin feeling fresh, clean and 3x less oily. To use: Slap it on. Wait 10 minutes. Strip it off. With Natural Charcoal, known for its ability to draw out and trap deep-down impurities” – From the Biore website

Price: $7.99 at CVS.

Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Pads – Product Review

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

glycolic-padsOne of my favorite new products is Nip+Fab’s Glycolic Fix Pads. My skin can sometimes be acne prone, but yet it still dries out easily so it is hard to find a product that suits my needs that contains Glycolic Acid. But these pads contain hyaluronic acid, which helps to moisturize skin. The pads exfoliate gently and help even skin tone.

I have almost finished my first tub of pads, and I can actually tell a difference in my skin! This is one of the few products I’ve tried where I can see a noticeable difference. My skin tone looks healthy and I feel like dark spots have been reduced.

Product: Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Pads

Description: “Unveil younger-looking skin. 60 radiance-boosting pads, soaked in exfoliating glycolic acid retexture + resurface skin whilst witch hazel helps to tone. This moisturizing formula with hyaluronic acid + soothing blue daisy helps to reveal brighter + smoother looking skin.”

Price: $12.95 at Walgreens.

Product Review: Revlon ColorStay Makeup

Friday, May 29th, 2015

revlonThis Friday I thought I’d do a product review on one of my favorite go-to cosmetics. I’ve been trying different face products and foundations for years now, and have finally found a drugstore brand that provides everything I could ask for in a foundation.

Product: Revlon ColorStay Makeup

Product Description: A long-wearing foundation that is lightweight and will not fade or rub off. No cakey feel. This makeup is made to last all day and provide continuous hydration.

Results: The product goes on smoothly, and provides enough coverage to hide flaws and uneven skin tone, but is still light enough that it looks natural. The foundation lives up to it’s claim and last’s all day (even in the heat!). No makeup settling into lines and creases – just an oil free flawless look that lasts all day!

Stars: 5 out of 5!

Around $11

Product Review: Gillette Venus Swirl Razor

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

VenusFinally a FlexBall Razor for women! I’ve been secretly wanting to try the Gillette Flexball Razor for men, but never got around to it. So.. perfect timing that the came out with one for women.

Product Description:
A contouring razor for women with Gillette’s “revolutionary FLEXIBALL™” and 5 blades. The handle has a nicer grip than the previous Venus Razors, and the blades are surrounded by a water-activated serum to enhance glide on skin.

Results: The rotating head takes a minute to get used to, but comes in very handy around tricky areas like knees and ankles. The razor glides over skin very smoothly, although the moisture provided seems to be similar to previous Venus Blades. Overall, the Venus Swirl makes it easy to shave quickly and precisely, without causing irritation or nicks. Since the razor itself only has to be purchased once – I’d highly recommend splurging, but maybe sticking to the regular blades. The Flexball is a nice asset, but I didn’t see much difference in the Venus Swirl blade as compared to the previous Venus Blades.

Stars: 4 1/2 out of 5

Price: Around $12 for the Razor

Product Review: Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

roller-lash-660x234When I walked in to a popular beauty store a few days ago, I was convinced by a makeup artist to purchase the new Roller Lash Mascara from Benefit. So, here is my review.

Product Description: The mascara promises to separate, lift and curl your lashes, with a hold that lasts up to 12 hours. The Hook ‘n’ Roll™ brush provides instant curl, and is supposed to be a replacement or reduce the need for an eyelash curler.

Results: I must admit that I had high expectations after being persuaded by the sales lady. So maybe my expectations were too high. The mascara DID offer some extra curl to my lashes – I don’t curl my eyelashes often as it is, so not sure if it would be a substantial replacement. The mascara formula is water-resistant which is nice – it won’t flake off or run. However I did have a problem with a few of my lashes clumping together and refusing to separate like the package promised. Other than that, if you are looking to save time and skip the eyelash curler, I’d say this mascara is the best for lift and curl that I’ve tried.

Stars: 4 out of 5.
