Nivea Hydrating Shower Gel

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

If you’re very particular about your body wash and would rather shop for it at the mall then a drug store, you would like Nivea’s Hydrating Shower Gel. We tried it in Touch of Honeydew and the smell is amazing. It also has the unique feature of rinsing clean but moisturizing at the same time. The moisture is from the sunflower pearls, which are beads in the shower gel that release an extra dose of moisturizing oil.

CoverGirl Clean Pressed Powder (Sensitive Skin)

Monday, August 30th, 2010

Our preferred method to use pressed powder is to take a large brush and use it to set foundation and combat greasy skin. CoverGirl’s Clean Pressed Powder for Sensitive Skin really did the job. We were shine free for the entire day, and it didn’t feel heavy at all. We chose the one for Sensitive Skin because it’s fragrance free – we figure the less ingredients to irritate our skin, the better! We also like that their website can help you choose your shade so you have a pretty good idea of what you need before you go to the store.

Eco-Tools Bamboo 5 Piece Brush Set with Case

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Eco-tools is a brand that is worthy of mention since they donate 1% of all their sales to 1% for the Planet, an organization dedicated to preserving our planet. Armed with a great excuse to buy beauty products from EcoTools, we tried their Bamboo 5 Piece Brush Set with Case. At a little under $12 for all 5 brushes and a case we didn’t have high expectations for excellence – especially since the brushes aren’t made with animal hair. But although these brushes are made from synthetic bristles, they are really soft! The brush set contains a blush, eye shading, eyeliner, and concealer brush, and a lash and brow groomer. The brush handles are made from bamboo, a highly sustainable plant, and the metal parts are made from recycled aluminum cans. Although we were happy to buy from a brand that is cruelty free and environmentally conscious, the added bonus is that they make a truly quality product. We can’t wait to try their Earth-Friendly Travel Sample Set to see if their skincare is as nice as their makeup brushes, please leave a comment and let us know if you’ve tried it!

Physician’s Formula Glow-Boosting Pressed Shimmer Bronzer

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

If you’re a package snob then you would really like Physician’s Formula’s Glow-Boosting Pressed Shimmer Bronzer. It is fancy enough to belong in a department store – the compact contains a retractable bronzer brush, mirror, and gold handle. And unlike most bronzers at this price point, the brush is luxioriously soft. Not only does the fluffy texture of the brush make bronzing more pleasant, it helps give you a subtle glow instead of a muddy finish. Another important thing about this bronzer is that it doesn’t have any orange so it’s easier to achieve the look you want. And as with all Physican Formula products, this bronzer is paraben free and hypoallergenic.

Garnier Skin Renew The Brusher Gel-Cleanser

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Have you ever tried a product and became resentful that it hadn’t been created sooner? That’s how we felt about Garnier’s Skin Renew The Brusher Gel-Cleanser.  First of all, it’s fun to use! We ended up taking a much longer time to wash our face as the brush feels like a mini massage. And it’s very easy, you just squeeze the bottle slightly and the brush is loaded with the face wash. The packaging and application would win most people over, but the cleanser is actually a great formula. You get all of the foaming acting to make you feel like you’re getting a good clean, but you also get Vitamin B5, Vitamin E, and Green Leaf Extract in a cleanser that’s non-drying. Here is why we are so impressed: if you don’t have oily skin, you usually don’t get to use aggressive cleansers that make your skin feel fresh and free of makeup. This product allows someone with normal to very dry skin literally scrub their skin clean without dry patches later! Our only hope is that Garnier never discontinues this product.
