Beauty Product Reviews | Page 14


Last month I did a huge review on Juice Beauty, a California based organic cosmetics company, and from that review I received a lot of questions about their skincare line - mostly about their cleansers. Having sensitive skin, I was a bit hesitant to try their cleanser - I'm always scared something will burn my skin and give me really bad redness and irritation spots. But I toughed it out and have been using their Cleansing Milk for the past two weeks. I am deeply impressed with this cleanser, it is gentle enough to use daily - even morning and night, it helps loosen the makeup on my face to remove completely and smoothly, it is soap free - which really makes a huge difference because it doesn't leave that dried out feeling after using it, and it is packed with anti-oxidants and vitamins to help keep your skin healthy and strong giving it a natural glow.

You know when you read descriptions on products, and your first reaction is something like "ya, ok, we'll see how this really works out" WELL, I decided not to read the description until after I had my own opinion about it. So yesterday, I made a list of what I like about it and how I feel it's changed or effected my skin - then I went back and read the description of the product on their website. I was SO shocked to see that my list was almost exact to the description they had about the products performance!

I began using this product once a day for three days, then I bumped it up to morning and night every day. My skin felt no irritation what so ever! My face used to always get dry on my chin, around my nostrils and in the center of my forehead - since using the Cleansing Milk I have had no dryness, no flaking, not even tightness! And then my favorite part about this cleanser - it has REMARKABLY reduced my red areas. I have always had areas of red/pink in the spots where I would get the dryness, and I have noticed that I no longer have those red/pink colors in my skin anymore! This is the first time since my pre-teen years that my skin has been one uniform color! People, I am too excited about this to articulate my appreciation for this product. I have never experienced something working so well on me and to actually see positive results - it's almost unbelievable! Here's an HD photo comparison of my skin without makeup from February and one from March - you can clearly see the redness is gone and my skin looks more evenly pigmented! (in the March photo I am wearing makeup in my eyebrows - but that is all)

I still use my Murad Exfoliating Cleanser about 2-3 times a week, which I still love, but I have made this Cleansing Milk a permanent part of my daily skincare routine. Every morning I wake up, I splash my face with lukewarm water, then gently massage my face with the Cleansing Milk and rinse it off - I don't usually apply a moisturizer - and I go about my day. Then at night before bed, if I have makeup on or not, I splash my face with lukewarm water, then gently massage the Cleansing Milk all over my face, I rinse and then use a makeup remover wipe afterward to just make sure all the makeup is off my skin.

I never used to have skincare routines or staple products - hell, I barely even washed my face every week just because so many products have torn up my skin and made it horrible. This Cleansing Milk has changed my whole idea of skincare - I actually do my routine without even thinking about, I just do it automatically now. And I'm loving the fact that I can just sport my tinted moisturize and HD powder and be on my way for the day - without any insecurities about the condition of my skin! OMG! This review is so long! Haha, hopefully you get the picture I'm excited about this product and I COMPLETELY urge people to try it out - it's amazing and organic and it helps refresh your skin to give off it's own naturally healthy glow!

Surprisingly Great Quality for $1!

I decided to try out my very first E.L.F. Nail Polish (which I bought online for just $1) and surprise-surprise, I like the color and quality of these inexpensive polishes.

Smoothing & Firming

I want to begin this review by saying that ageless or age defying products are not just for "mature" people. I feel that younger people (mainly 20's+) should invest in these types of products because it will help prevent the look of aging and help keep your skin healthy and in great condition IN ADDITION to a proper healthy diet and an appropriate skin care routine.

Now on to the review! :)

About two months ago, my mother gave me the Burt's Bees Naturally Ageless Line Diminishing Day Lotion to try out. This was the first time I found out Burt's Bees had a facial line and on top of that an ageless line. As a long time Burt's Bees consumer and lover, I was instantly excited and anxious to try out this product. I would apply this lotion after every facial cleanse and let it dry into my skin. I personally need about 3 pumps to have enough lotion to cover my face and neck. When using this lotion, my skin is more hydrated and I actually didn't have to reapply a moisturizer through out the day like I used to. It did begin to feel a bit oily after a whole day of wearing no makeup on top of it, but it wasn't shiny to the point of me blotting my skin. I don't have any fine lines or wrinkles, but I can sure feel it firming my skin after it dries. The firmness is not a tight dry type of firmness, it reminds me of what my skin was like when I was younger. My face feels smoother, looks healthier because I don't show any irritation spots, and the dry patches I normally have on my chin and forehead have not been dry or flaky since using this product. I will say there is one thing about it that I wish they would change, the scent completely disgusts me! I personally hate sweet scents, and this just smells too sweet! I have toughed it out just to try it for this review, but I honestly cannot use it anymore. I have moved it from my bathroom counter top to the medicine cabinet because I'm not going to force myself to use it, rather I will use when I feel my skin needs it. I can usually just deal with a product's bad scent if I know it works, but this one is just too much for me, so I'm going to have to cut back on using it so I don't pass out from a fragrance migraine! In conclusion, I would recommend this product to everyone, men and women of any skin type - it's gentle, natural and doesn't turn you into a grease ball. If you have oily skin, I would suggest using a small amount, and only on your fine lined or wrinkled areas. Oily skin doesn't need the hydrating benefit as much, but this does help firm so using a little on just the appropriate areas should keep your face from getting more oily than normal.
