I received this moisturizer free from Influenster for my honest review. I was really excited about receiving this box in the beginning because my face gets SUPER dry in the winter, so I broke this out the first night I received it and used it after I washed my face. First thing I noticed is that it has a VERY strong sunscreen smell. Now, most of moisturizers do also contain SPF in them and don't have that odor, so I was pretty disappointed about this one. It felt good going on and absorbed pretty quickly, but I was pretty disappointed that I didn't feel confident enough to wear this to work without having to explain to my coworkers why I smelled like the beach in mid-January. For moisture, it works really, really well. It healed my severely dry skin in just a few days. So this is a great nighttime moisturizer, but I wouldn't recommend it for daytime wear unless you're okay with the smell.
I've heard horror stories when it comes to people with sensitive skin trying Aveeno, but I decided to give it a shot anyway. I received a free sample of Aveeno's Postiviely Radiant during CVS' Beauty Day and fell in love. I didn't have any reaction to this product and I've never used a face lotion that felt so light. I use lotion on my face in lieu of primer with a matte powder on top. I've experienced that most face lotions seep through my powder and make my face very oily by midday. I did not experience this at all with Positively Radiant. My face had very minor shine by the end of the day. And even though the bottle size is small, it lasts forever! I had a .5 ounce sample bottle and it lasted me over a month when using it once a day over my entire face. I cannot say enough great things about this product. Plus, you can often get it for a steal at CVS with some of their coupons. So worth it!
I swear by this stuff! I always have a shiny face, and I'm convinced that those times I didn't shine was because I used this product. I have VERY sensitive skin, but this product did not bother me at all. I used it in my morning routine every day and never experienced any negative side effects. It did take my face a few weeks to adjust to (got a little dry), but once I was used to it, I have never loved a product more. It kept my skin very clear and kept my skin down to a minimum. For the very low price, I would highly recommend anyone trying this for clearer skin and minimum shine!
I have very sensitive skin, but being on a budget all the time, I figured I'd give these a try, especially since a lot of other people I know use them. They ended up being too rough on my skin and left an uncomfortable oily residue on my skin. I also felt like it rubbed too hard on my eyes, often pulling out many my lashes. I typically use Simple wipes, and I've never lost ANY lashes while using them. From these Neutrogena wipes, I probably lost between 5 and 6 lashes per eye per use. Definitely will not purchase again.
This is honestly the first drugstore makeup remover that I've fallen in love with. I've struggled with finding a reasonably-priced makeup remover that says it's oil-free and doesn't actually leave any residue. For about $5 at Walmart, this makeup remover is AMAZING. It dries up very quickly with absolutely NO residue, so I'm able to continue putting on makeup as soon as I corrected a mistake with my liquid liner. This also lasts me a very long time since it's in such a large bottle.I do not have the any of the issues all of the other reviewers have had with having to use a lot of product to take off a little makeup. Just for reference, oil-free makeup remover isn't meant to take out waterproof makeup (that's why they make oil-based makeup removers). I actually found that I use even less of this liquid to take off my makeup compared to other drugstore brands.The only negative thing I can say about it is that it has a small opening of where the liquid comes out. Normally, I dip my Q-tips in the bottle, but now I have to go about it differently. Not the end of the world, though. I so, so, so highly recommend this product if you're looking for a cheap makeup remover!
I've never tried face masks before this one that I received in my Birch Box, but I am in LOVE. This face mask dries up my skin (in a good way!) and cleans it out completely. I make sure to use it about once a week in addition to a peel-off mask also once a week so that I safely dry out my skin then peel off the dead skin. My face has never looked so radiant!
I personally wasn't very enthusiastic when I received this product because I didn't think it'd be something I'd ever use. Finally, I had an outdoor party during the day when I realized that my "summer tan" was practically non-existent. I pulled out my sample I received for product testing by Influesnter and tried it. Actually fell in love! I didn't understand the need for this kind of product, but this is something I'd definitely use for special occasions. It instantly gave my legs a golden look, but still looked pretty natural (which was my main hesitation for not using this product in the first place). I only took off one star because it was tough for me to keep the "natural" look around my ankles and transitioning onto my foot.
As a social media marketer (and normal human being), I LOVE Pinterest. For my job, Pinterest has become a great asset because of all of its new in-app purchases and paid marketing made available. Besides being plain awesome at increasing my brand awareness just to the areas I want it to, it's my go-to place when I want to learn how to do my hair in a new way or cook something new for dinner!
I don't have bad skin, but whenever I get breakouts, I always found that using drugstore facial cleansers never worked. So, I unfortunately always had to get a really expensive drugstore brand or get a dermatologist prescribed cleanser. One day while I was showering at my boyfriends house, I realized that I forgot to bring my face wash. This was all he had, so I used it. I've been in love with it ever since. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because it dried out my skin really badly while I was adjusting to the new cleanser. But that only lasted a week or two max. Now I have no problems using it!
