St Ives Apricot Scrub
I needed an exfoliater for quite some time now but just didn't know which product to purchase. I didn't want to go high end for a face scrub with no nutrient; and besides the scrub is going to be washed away during the process. I was looking for something natural, and at the same time effective.
Came across St Ives and so I decided to give it a try. It was quite inexpensive (about $4), and it had a pleasant apricot smell. What really caught my attention was that it is oil-free, with salicylic acid, and had 100% natural extracts. It's not tested on animals and is formulated without parabens or phthlates. I was like ok..let's give this a try. That same night, I cleansed my face with my cleanser, and proceeded to try this product. I added a dime size of exfoliant and began gently working in circular motions around my face for about 1 minute or less. I plan on using this about twice a week or less, because I don't want to over scrub. The direction, however, does say use 3-4 times/week - - I don't think I'm going to do that. The face is far too gentle to be scrubbed that much, unless you have oily prone skin and/or sweat a lot.
So far, I'm pleased with the results. Really like the fresh clean scent, and my face so far looks more translucent and less chalky. I hope the results will stay positive.
Revlon Colorburst Lipstick
This was a fun purchase to try Revlon's Colorburst line. The soft nude color goes great with dramatic eye make up. I'm not sure if I like the color of the lipstick yet bc I haven't given it much of a try. However, I do like the feel of the lipstick...it's fairly smooth without my lips feeling too dry. For lipsticks, I do feel it's a trial & error process to find the perfect color for a perfect match with your complexion.
Cover Girl Professional Mascara
I used this particular product when I was in high school. I feel that it's nothing special, just a light hold of mascara. Got this clear color mascara to use on my eyebrows so it will stay in place.
~~Well this is it for now. Talk soon!
