It’s all about updates for now.
I’ve been using quite a bit of new skin and hair products, so I thought I’d share them with you. Today, I’m just going to focus on skin.
Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect Scrub Foam
Easily my new favorite facial scrub. This product is pretty cool because you can choose the level of exfoliation by the amount of water you add before you apply it. You can apply it straight to your face for more exfoliation or add water to just use it as a foam cleanser. It leaves my skin feeling super clean, not dry and smells really nice!
Skinfood Freshmade Coconut Mask
This product actually surprised me. What do you think of when a product is a mask? I thought this was going to be a thicker formulation, something that stays on your face for 10-15 minutes before you wash it off (think SheaMoisture clay masks), but that’s not at all what you get here. This ‘mask’ is a super lightweight, jelly-like consistency. It’s described as ‘bursting moisture droplets’, which is pretty accurate. When you apply it, you can feel it almost melting right into the skin. It absorbs super quickly, leaves no residue and instantly hydrates.
SheaMoisture Coconut Oil Coffee Scrub
The only new non-facial product on my list. I needed a new body scrub, I’m trying to get the KP on the legs back under control after mostly ignoring it in winter and spring. I decided to try this one because it is supposed to soften and restore, and it’s a coffee scrub… my favorite kind. This scrub is actually coffee grinds… straight up, no liquid in there, nothing binding the grinds together, just coffee grinds. I’m assuming the coconut oil is infused somewhere. It actually makes your shower smell like freshly brewed coffee, which is great for any morning shower people! I’m loving this scrub. Not only does it smell great when you use it, it really does leave your skin amazingly soft.
Those are all my new skin care products at the moment. What are some of your faves for summer?
I’ve been on a skin care kick, I’ve been obsessed with finding a peel off mask. While on my search, I came across this and I’m so glad I did!
So far, I’ve only used this as a scrub, and I love it! We need to discuss the smell… it seriously smells like apple cider and it’s so great, especially in the fall when I’m all about the apple cider.
The product itself is a peach color, and it’s not super thick even though it says that it’s a clay. I was wondering how it foamed up, I almost thought it could be like those bubbling masks that I’ve seen online, but it’s not like that, it actually starts to foam up when it touches water. It also has some small particles in it, which are great for exfoliating.
Every time I use it, my face feels super clean. I honestly love everything about this and I’ll probably be buying it again. I’m actually pretty excited to try other products from this brand as well. The best part? It’s only $4.29 at Ulta! I actually got it with another product for BOGO 50% off!
Have you tried this brand before? What are your favorite scrubs?
Disclaimer: This item was sent to me for review
I love a good scrub, and now that I wear makeup every day, I definitely need more of that deep clean you get from a scrub.
Here is a little about the product:
“Most scrubs leave your skin dry and ravaged like a bad night out on the town: you thought it was going to be good but after a few hours you feel kind of worse. Not so with InfiniteAloe Skin Care Scrub.
That’s because we love your skin with deep moisture while you are cleaning away the dirt, grime and old skin. You’ll be feeling fresh and new. Most people use it daily for a week and then maintain with a once-weekly application.”
It’s also made in the USA, cruelty free and uses organic Aloe Vera!
Here is a list of ingredients and directions are:
Moisten fingertips and carefully apply with a gentle circular motion, especially on areas where you have clogged pores.
Massage thoroughly then wash with warm water.
Let’s start with the scent. At first, it’s a strange scent and pretty strong, but when you take it our of the tub it actually smells a little choco-minty, kind of like Lush’s Mint Julep lip scrub, but less sweet. The texture is pretty thick, like a paste, but spreads easily onto the skin. It feels like a microdermabrasion type of product, lots of particles. It does not get foamy when you add water to it, or when you rub it into your skin, it’s purely a scrub.
As far as the claims go, I have to say that it definitely did not dry out my skin! I was pretty pleasantly surprised! My skin felt soft and very clean after using this. I didn’t use it for a week straight, instead just once a week, but I might try it out for a full week and see what happens.
Also, you get a lot of product. It’s 4oz, which doesn’t seem like a lot but that tub is pretty darn big when you get your hands on it. You don’t need that much when you use it, so I can see this lasting me for a long while.
So, I really like this scrub! It does the job without totally drying out my skin, so if you have dry skin, I’d totally suggest trying this! You can buy this on Infinite Aloe’s website, it retails for $40 for 4oz, but right now it’s $30.
