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.

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.

Before I go into my review, here is some info from the website:

Great skin starts with confidence! Perfect for all skin types, even the most sensitive, Confidence in a Cream™ deeply hydrates, restores radiance and reduces the look of pores, uneven texture and discoloration. Proprietary Anti-Aging Armour Regenerative Concentrate™ is activated upon contact to immerse your skin in moisture for powerful results that you’ll see instantly, and more dramatic results over time.

Paraben-free, hypoallergenic and non-irritating, Confidence in a Cream™ nourishes your skin with collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides, ceramides, antioxidants and colloidal oatmeal to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the texture of your skin and delivering the ideal amount of moisture.

Clinically shown results!

  • 100% said skin was soft, smooth & infused with moisture*
  • 97% said skin looked and felt rejuvenated*
  • 94% said skin felt younger and healthier*
  • 81% said pores appeared minimized, and fine lines & wrinkles appeared less noticeable*

*Results observed in a consumer panel survey.

So, I always like to start with packaging, which I already mentioned that I loved. Since is a glass jar it’s nice and heavy. The label looks very much like something you’d see from Strivectin. I also want to mention that the jar isn’t clear, it’s actually a light yellow-beige color.

When you open the jar, you’ll see the product, which is not like a traditional cream moisturizer. It’s more gel-like in texture. Now, I have to warn you… the scent. It’s very very strong, and it smells exactly like fresh ginger. If you don’t like ginger, don’t take big whiffs of it.

It applies nicely, you only need a small amount. It absorbs quickly, doesn’t feel greasy and leaves my skin pretty moisturized.

Unfortunately, this broke me out. I don’t know if it was an ingredient, something about the scent or just because my skin is really picky (which it is), but I tried this product on two separate occasions and it did break me out both times. I really wish it hadn’t because I really do like it!

I did like the product before I had a reaction to it. Don’t let that scare you, as I do have very sensitive skin.

You can find this on It’s website and Ulta’s website. It retails for $48 for 2 oz, you do get a lot of product for that price considering that you only need to use a tiny bit.

Gold Bond Rough and Bumpy Skin Review!

A little while ago I did a post on how I manage my KP. I also recently ran out of my DERMAdoctor KP Duty cream. I had heard about the Gold Bond Rough and Bumpy, but never actively looked for it, so when I ran out of KP Duty I decided it was time to try it out.

shoppingIt comes in a large 8 oz tub. The formulation is a little thinner than the KP Duty, and it smells just a little funny. It’s hard to place the scent, but it’s nothing bad and pretty faint.

The KP Duty cleared up most of my big problem areas, so I’m using this to help maintain everything. Also, since my bigger problem areas have cleared up, I started concentrating on some smaller problem areas like one of my knees, the size of my calf and the backs of my legs (which are just bumpy, no redness). I apply it after every shower, I also do a light exfoliation every shower. I do apply this a little more liberally because I’m not afraid of running out. I use about a large grape sized amount per leg.

The side of the container says that 90% saw smoother skin in one week, 72% saw a reduction of bumps and KP in 4 weeks, and 89% had overall less bumpy and softer skin in 4 weeks.

I’ve been using it for almost 3 weeks and I’ve already seen an improvement. I was weary because of the claims, but so far so good, I have nothing bad to say about this at all. So, I’m really liking this so far! I think the price is definitely the biggest selling point. It’s 8 oz and I got it for $12, opposed to 4 oz of DERMAdoctor for $38. I highly suggest trying this out if you have KP or just bumpy/rough skin in general.

If you have KP, have you tried any other treatments?

How I Manage My KP!

So, I’m (very sadly) back from Disney World and today I wanted to talk to you guys about KP or Keratosis Pilaris.

What is KP, you ask? Well, it’s a condition that causes rough patches and small, acne-like bumps on the skin and it occurs when too much keratin builds up in the skin’s hair follicles. It’s also sometimes called ‘chicken skin”, which I find kinda bleh haha.

Anyway, I mostly get it on my thighs, and never really thought anything of it as it wasn’t that bad. It eventually cleared up and I forgot about it all together, until a couple of months ago when it came back with a vengeance. I knew I had my Disney trip coming up and a wedding to go to in the summer, so the bumps were not going to fly. I decided to try exfoliating first, and it seemed to help but it actually just really irritated my skin and didn’t help at all. I finally did some reading and went for an actual KP treatment, I went to Ulta and picked up…

dd_kpduty_newDermadoctor KP Duty Dermatologist Formulated AHA Moisturizing Therapy for Dry Skin! Phew! That name is a mouthful. When I first started using it, I was pretty skeptical, but I knew that results wouldn’t happen overnight. After using it for over a month now, I have to say that it has definitely worked for me! The directions say to use it twice a day, but I only use it about 4 times a week. What I like to do is use it after I shower, I’ll shave my legs in the shower to gently exfoliate, because shaving does that, and then dry off my legs and apply to the areas that I need it.

It’s pretty expensive, $38 for 4 oz. It’s lasted me a while, and cleared up my skin so I actually think it’s a decent value and would consider buying another one when I run out.

In the last couple of weeks I’ve also added another moisturizer to my arsenal…

05162Lush Tender is the Night Massage Bar! Now, let me first say that I had no idea it was a massage bar when I started using it haha and I don’t use it for massages at all. I think it’s a fantastic moisturizer! I mostly use it on my lower legs, where there isn’t much KP, but I also took it to Disney to use all over because it’s great to travel with!

It’s quickly become one of m new favorite things and I’m definitely going to buy more of them! They vary in prices and scents, so check your local Lush or Lush.com for more info.

And that’s it! I’m just glad that I’ve gotten my KP under control lol I hope this post wasn’t TMI for you!
