Here are all of the beauty and hygiene products we've used up recently along with some short reviews. Most of you guys know I am a beauty product junkie and I love doing these types of posts! I hope you enjoy and find some new products you'd like to try!
Suave Juicy Green Apple Conditioner
I loved this conditioner and for $0.99 it's a steal! The smell is delicious and this got all of the tangles out of my curly and easily knotted hair. I am so impressed with this conditioner because it is so inexpensive, there really is no need to purchase pricier conditioner.
Clear Strong Lengths Nourishing Shampoo
I loved this shampoo! I have curly, dry, knotted hair and this shampoo almost felt like it detangled, which most shampoos do just the opposite. This shampoo smells awesome, and definetly nourishes the hair as it claims to do. This shampoo is great for dry, curly, or damaged hair. If you have thin or straight hair this may weigh it down a little too much.
Rudy Curly Hair Mask
Ooooh man, did I HATE this hair mask. It did absolutely nothing for my hair. I got this huge tub at Ross for $3.99 like 2 years ago and it is finally gone! It did not detangle whatsoever. I would not recommend this.
Ivory Hair and Body Wash
I got this complimentary from Influesnter.com to try out and review. We really enjoyed this as a moisturizing body wash! It works well in your hair too as a shampoo but I prefer it as a body wash. It is so moisturizing that you really don't need to apply lotion afterwards. It also foamed up so much that you could use this in place of shave gel.
Purisitcs Night Recovery Cream
I used to love this night cream but something about is just isn't right anymore. I don't know if that was a bad bottle or if maybe my face doesn't react well to this product anymore? It started balling up on my face a few minutes after I applied it. If I touched my face after applying it little white balls of lotion would be all over my hands and face. I ended up using the rest of this on my hands and feet. Sadly, I don't think I will be repurchasing this, and it's really a bummer because it's organic and about $2.00 at BigLots.
Clean and Clear Fruit Infusions Reviving Cleanser
I used to dislike this face wash because of the smell and I felt like it may have been breaking me out. But after a while I tried using it again and I really like it. It foams up a lot, it removes all traces of face and eye makeup, and it leaves you face moisturized. The smell isn't my favorite but it does wake you up a bit when you use it in the morning.
Nivea For Men Face Wash and Shave Gel
This is definitely not my favorite shave gel. It doesn't really foam up at all so you end up using a whole lot of product. Yes, this is for men but I will use whatever I can get for cheap. Daniel used this as a face wash and didn't seem to mind it, but I do think it may have been drying his face out a little bit.
Physicians Formula Wrinkle Filler and Deep Moisture Repair
I won this in a giveaway, thank you very much Physicians Formula!!! No I do not have a ton of wrinkles or anything but I really enjoyed this product. I used this as a night moisturizer and it worked really well! It moisturized without leaving my face oily and in the morning I would wake up to fresh looking skin. This stuff is pretty pricey so I won't be purchasing this but it was really nice to try!
Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Mud Spa Sheet Mask
I received this complimentary from Influenster.com to review and sample. I absolutely LOVED this sheet mask. It was really cooling, refreshing, super relaxing, it felt like it de-puffed my eyes a bit, and it tightened my pores a whole lot! This is a sheet mask which means it's a fabric mask that you lay on your face for about 10-15 minutes. I left this on for about 30 minutes just because it felt so nice, I did not want to take it off! After you take it off you rub the residue into your skin like a face wash and then rinse it off. I was left with glowing, tighter, fresh looking skin. I loved this mask and would love to try out some more!
Bath and Body Works Chocolate Chew PocketBac
This is just a chocolate scented hand sanitizer that fits into one of those little pouches that you can attach to your purse or diaper bag. Every time I used this people would say how great it smelled and would ask for some. Daniel hated the scent. It smells like chocolate, but I can see how some people could find it over powering.
Olay Regenerist Eye Cream
I got this complimetary from VocalPoint.com to sample and review. This comes with the clear lash serum on the other end, I haven't finished the serum just yet. This eye cream is nice, I didn't notice a difference but since I am still young I don't have too many wrinkles around my eyes yet. I know it will come with time, so I try to use an eye cream now to help prevent them for as long as possible. Who knows, it may all be a bunch on bologna but I think it's worth the extra step in my facial care regimen. I will not purchase this myself because it is pretty expensive and I would rather use a more natural product.
Yes To Carrots Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15
This was an awesome steal for $3.50 at BigLots! I loved this face moisturizer! It moisturized without leaving my skin oily and it has an SPF 15 which is always a must for me during the day. I love that this is 97% natural and will totally repurchase this if I can find it for a good price again!
Concha Nacar De Perlop Cream
I ordered this face mask on Amazon.com when I read some really wonderful reviews on it. This product is supposed to lighten scars and blemish marks. This mask is a white, gritty texture, and it honestly makes a huge mess when applied. This has crushed oyster shells in it so they tend to fall onto your shirt or the sink when applying it and wearing it. You are supposed to wear this for 30-60 minutes twice a week. I probably applied this 2 times a month because of how long the mask needs to sit on your face. This left my face clean, super soft, it shrunk my pores, and it helped with any breakouts I was having. This did not help fade any marks on my face, but I did not apply this as much as I should have. This product can also be used as a great face exfoliater. I don't think I will buy this again because of how messy it is.
Loreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes
I really really loved this mascara. It has teeny tiny fibers in it so it adds extra length to your lashes. I found that this lengthened, separated, and added a decent amount of volume to my lashes. I finally had to toss is because it started flaking but I kept this way past it's expiration date.
Whew... that was a lot of empties.
