Boscia Charcoal Deep-Pore Cleansing Stick Treatment Review!

A month or so ago I went to Sephora looking for the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask, and of course, they did not have it. Not one was in stock. I guess everyone had the same idea as me that weekend. So, one of the girls working there suggested that I try the charcoal stick treatment, and I’m so glad she did!

This is literally a stick, like deodorant or a chapstick, you roll it up from the bottom. I had never used a solid cleanser before, but I have used charcoal cleansers and really liked them before.

So, basically, you wet your face, roll up a bit of the cleanser and apply in circular motions all over your face. It will lather up slightly, and you’ll feel the fine charcoal particles exfoliate. Then work it in a bit more with your fingers, if you like (I do), and rinse. It rinses easily and leaves my face super clean and not at all dry.

I love this stuff! I am so glad that someone pointed this out to me, otherwise I probably would not have even looked at it. I use this a few times a week, and it definitely helps to clear up my skin if I’m having any issues. Honestly, this might be a new holy grail cleanser for me, I really do love it that much.

Have you every used this before? What about any other solid cleansers?

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Review!

I don’t even want to tell you guys how obnoxiously dry my skin was at the start of winter, I decided it was definitely time for a skin care upgrade.

I asked a blogger group that I’m part of for suggestions, and a bunch of people said to try out First Aid Beauty.

I went to Sephora that weekend, tested a bunch of stuff and ultimately decided on the Ultra Repair Cream.

I’ve been using it every day since I bought it, and I have to say that it actually made a huge difference right away. My skin is noticeably more moisturized, not one patch of dryness. My makeup is looking so much better after I use this in the morning. It’s so good that I use it in the morning under my makeup and at night before I go to bed. The texture of it is a bit different, it feels almost whipped. It’s super soft, non-greasy and absorbs super quickly. The only thing that’s lacking for me is the scent, it’s just very lotion-y, and it look me a little while to get used to it. It’s not unpleasant, just kind of meh. I can definitely overlook the scent with these results, though.

Overall, amazing. I’m kind of obsessed with this cream, it is awesome. I actually want to go back and get the serum as well. First Aid Beauty will definitely be one of my skin care go-tos from now on.

Skinfood Egg White Pore Foam Review!

I’ve been on a skin care kick, that’s mostly what I’ve been buying lately. I was browsing Ulta’s website before a trip there and I saw this! It immediately intrigued me, and I had to find it. Luckily, I did!

So, I always like to start with scent… this smells perfumey , but then as you lather it up you do get a hint of a weird almost raw eggy smell, its subtle but still weird lol.

The formula is thick, almost lotion like, and you only need a little bit because the name ‘pore foam’ is no lie, it seriously lathers up into a really rich foam.

I’ve been using it a few times a week, and I have to say.. so far so good! I was worried that it might break me out, but it’s super gentle and I haven’t had any bad reactions to it. It leaves my face feeling really nice and clean, yet not dried out at all. So, giving it an A+ and I can’t wait to try more products from this brand!

Have you tried anything from Skinfood?

Neutrogena Naturals Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Night Cream Review!

Happy December, everyone! I can’t believe it’s already December, winter is upon us and that meas it’s time for new skin care! I’ve been debating about getting a night cream, because my skin gets pretty dry after I wash it at night, and I figure that moisturizing at night and in the morning will help my skin from drying out during the day. Who know? But I’m hoping it helps.

Neutrogena® Naturals Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Night Cream

The night cream I decided to get was actually a total impulse buy. I was looking at a different one from Ulta, but was too lazy to go there lol so, when I found myself in Walmart, I saw this one and grabbed it.

It’s the Neutrogena Naturals. I’ve never seen this line before so I was pretty excited! My skin is super picky about lotions and creams, and the only one I can really use is Neutrogena.

Firstly, I’d like to mention that it is in a glass jar! I’m a sucker for packaging and the glass jar just make sit feel much more high end. It does have a scent, it’s a bit tropical, not too floral or citrusy. It’s not very strong, I’m usually not all about face products with scent, but this one is very nice and doesn’t bother my skin at all. It’s a nice thick texture and abords quickly, leaving skin feeling nice and hydrated.

I’ve been using this every night that I wash my face, which is most nights, sometimes I cheat with a makeup wipe if I’m lazy. The next morning I will wash my face again and moisturize with Neutrogena Hydro Boost. I have found that, so far, my skin has been less dry throughout the day, and I’m thinking it’s because I’ve added this extra layer of moisturizing to my routine. I’m also very happy to say that I have had no skin reactions to this product! No breakouts or irritation.

Overall, I’m super happy with it, and actually look forward to applying it every night. If you’re looking for a night moisturizer, definitely check this one out. For the price point, you cannot beat it.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Apple Cider Vinegar 4-in-1 Foaming Clay Review!

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?

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Review!

I’ve wanted to try this forever! Especially since the spokesperson is Kristen Bell. I’m not one for spokespeople, but… I love Kristen Bell. And I love a good moisturizer, so I basically needed this.

neutrogenahydroboost

So, water gel. That’s actually the best way I can see to describe it. It’s cool to the touch and feels cool on your face. It’s pretty refreshing. It absorbs quickly and you only need a little bit for your entire face.

I use this as my moisturizer, after j wash my face and before I prime. I find it very moisturizing and lightweight. I like it better than the Neutrogena day cream that I was using before, as sometimes creamy lotions can feel heavy.

Its especially good because it’s been a hot summer here, and I don’t like too much heaviness on my face.

In terms of moisturizing, I find it keeps my skin nicely moisturizer during the day and my makeup doesn’t cake up as much as it did before.

Overall, I’m all over this and I highly suggest trying it. If you want to try it, definitely shop around as I’ve seen $2 differences between different stores. I got mine at Wegmans for $17.99, and I’ve seen it at Ulta for $19.99.

 

My Winter Skincare Routine!

It’s definitely starting to feel like winter around these parts, so I decided to share my updated winter skincare routine!

IA-SCRUB4detail

First step in my day is using this baby! I love this stuff, I know you’re not supposed to exfoliate every day… but I kinda do. I water it down quiet a bit so it’s just a little scrubby. It’s saved my face a few times.

6802535_320x385This is my new moisturizer and I love it! I finished my Infinite Aloe moisturizer and needed a new one, so I figured I should get something super moisturizing for the winter. I’m usually very sensitive to new skin products, but Neutrogena has never let me down! This one is great, it’s pretty thick and super creamy, and you only need a little bit for your whole face.

41O5C-TzGsL._SX425_My mom has been on a Clarins kick lately. She bought a whole bunch of stuff, got one of these and I inherited it. I’ve been using this as my nightly face wash. It’s creamy, lathers up nicely and is super gentle, seriously the softest bubbles ever.

deepCleansingPoreStripsAnd of course… my new favorite thing to do… pore strips. I use these once a week and loveeee them. Everyone makes fun of me when I have them on around the house, but that’s okay.

What are your go to products in the winter?
