I'm a Mom that's married to my high school best friend, nope not sweetheart but best friend! We have a terrific little boy that's definitely my husband's Mini Me. We raise and breed Labradors and own all 3 traditional colors. We also have a ton of cats that my boys keep rescuing! I'm a stay at home Mom due to major health issues, and we're very active in our school, church, community and completely support anything with Chronic Pain Awareness and Breast Cancer Awareness. My Mom and my Mother in Law are both Breast Cancer Survivors. I'm just adventuring away from my normal products and trying new things in life and thought this would be a great opportunity. So that's a little about me and my family.
Love these things!!! I discovered them in my college days back in 2000 when I was buying stuff on my own...I couldn't find the cotton balls my Mom ways bought but I did find these. I picked them up that day and have been using then ever since. I used them to remove my makeup, especially my eye makeup and always for my nail polish remover!! These cotton pads are nice and soft! Unlike some other brandsh4yllll)[
These get the job done and the cotton on the ends is relatively soft. You can count on them being gentle no matter where you're using them. However, if you end up getting the paper sticks and not the plastic ones, you can't put too much pressure on them or they bend and become pretty useless. That's worth a whole star deduction in my mind!!! Especially since the plastic middles are very hard to find in my area.
Can't go wrong with good old fashion Clorox Bleach!! We use it for general cleaning and sanitizing purposes in both the kitchen and bathroom. You can also use it in the wash "to keep whites whiter" although I've never attempted that. This is one of those products you always have on hand though and it's definitely something I recommend! If you can't handle the smell of the original, they have came out with different fragrances to help offset the smell now too. So you can always go that route.
This is a product a girl from Ulta recommended and gave me samples of to try out, so I'm doing my review from them. It's a fairly thick paste, and goes on much better if you use your fingers and let it warm up on them for a minute before applying. It's supposed to be able to cover up any dark spot out there, and I've seen it work great on tons of them. It covers mine fairly well...for a while...then something changes and here they come shining thru while the rest of my makeup is perfect. A little of this goes a long way, so be careful because you don't want to over do it. It's not as silky smooth as some of the other Benefit products are but it doesn't feel tacky or heavy on face. I'm happy enough with it that I would buy it and I've been recommending it as well because it definitely covers most everything up!
I've used this concealer for over 15 years! It's always been good to my youthful face. However, now that I've gotten older and have acquired some dark spots due to an auto immune disease this just can not hide them...even with color corrector. It makes me sad but I'm having problems period finding something that will last all day long with keeping them covered, so I'm not knocking this concealer for it. I still keep it handy in my morning routine area and grab it a lot of time for the area around my eyes. I definitely recommend this!!! It's not real liquidy but it's not real thick either. It doesn't cake up (unless you really layer and bake it on) and I've never had an issue with it peeling off. So give it a try👍
🤷♀️ ended up using it more for contouring because it ended up being too dark for me...it's hard to judge when buying at a drug store/supermarket!! I can say it had a nice consistency, it went on very easy and it stayed well throughout the day. So I think it would be a great choice for a low price concealer as well.
This is an amazing product!!! It's as smooth as velvet and just glides overs my face! I was absolutely amazed!! I just love the way it feels!!! Plus I've tried it with several different foundations and it's worked quite well with every single one of them!! I definitely recommend it!!
So I have no clue if I'm using this stuff right or not but I'll give my face a few sprays after I apply my makeup. I couldn't tell you if it really does make it "set" better or not but it's cheap enough you can try it out for yourself. Maybe you're more makeup savvy than I am and know exactly what you're getting into 😕
This is a little thick so you've got to be careful not to get it too cakey on top of your foundation but as a general concealer this is some pretty decent stuff...especially when you factor in the price!
