It feels like New York kinda sorta skipped over Autumn this year and headed right for the chilly Wintery weather. It’s been a lot of rain with a nice bite of cold in the air (although today is a gorgeous Fall day).
This has caused my skin to go into havoc mode. I have flaky skin around the sides of my nose, between my brows, and a bit on my cheeks as well. My skin is feeling rather tight and dry to say the least and can’t get enough moisture. Never mind the dullness…!
This is why I need to select a good cleansing wash because many dry my skin out even further.
HadaLabo Tamagohada Daily Face Wash is the perfect daily creamy cleansing wash that keeps my skin soft and smooth after each use.
Here’s one to try your next trip to Target, Boots No7 Beautiful Skin Melting Gel Cleanser ($8.49). This one is for normal to dry skin (particularly the dry skin folks out there) and is formulated as a gel which melts into a nourishing oil when water activates it.
That’s because it is!
Lush Let the Good Times Roll is a new facial cleanser released for Holiday/Christmas 2012 that’s available for a short time only. Why oh why must they make these things limited edition?
As you know from many, many, many of my past posts I’m a hardcore Busche de Noel Cleanser fan. I thank the Lush gods that it’s come back each Holiday Season. Personally I think they should make it part of the standard cleanser collection and while there at it please for the love of all good facial cleansers make Let the Good Times Roll a part of it too!
As you know Pond’s recently launched a new Luminous Clean Collection that supposedly brightens skin and eases dullness. I say hells yes….I struggle with dull, tired skin so I definitely navigate towards anything that promises me brighter looking skin.
I’ve been using Pond’s Luminous Clean Cream Cleanser for close two weeks now and here are a few thoughts.
Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover is a newly launched (few months now) jelly-style makeup remover that resembles a cleansing oil.
If you’re not a big fan of cleansing oils or you’re a bit of afraid of them (you shouldn’t be they are fab), Aqua Jelly might be for you!
I’m obsessed with all things mint in the Summer (and the Winter for that matter). That cool, tingling feeling you get in the shower when you’re using some fantastically minty shower gel (my favorite, Bliss Shock Therapy).
You might recall Japanese brand, Rosette, teamed up with Sanrio to launch some rather cute Hello Kitty packaged skincare goodies. One of the more recent products to come out of that launch is the Rosette Hello Kitty Strong Mint Wash.
Take note people, they really mean STRONG!
Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions Smoothing Facial Scrub, I thought I’d write you off but you aren’t half bad.
I dislike gel exfoliators with a passion. They always include tiny beads that slip around my face but never actually scrub away anything. This results in failing to refine my skin or make it any smoother/softer.
That’s why I was a little skeptical of the new Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions Smoothing Facial Scrub.
But it surprised me!
Looks like Neutrogena Visibly Bright Daily Facial Cleanser came out early this Spring but I’m just hearing about it now.
Anyone try it?
Supposedly it transforms dull, tired skin to visibly brighten and refreshes it in as little as four uses.
Hmmm considering I have dull skin I decided to try it.
Oh Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub I want to love you but you’re just not suitable for my dry, flaky skin. I need you to be tough but you’re terribly gentle…!
I’m always so tempted by Aveeno’s brightening marketing strategy. Slap “brightening” on any skincare and I’m on top of it! Sadly, Aveeno’s Brightening Collection just isn’t something that’s ever really captured me.
Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub sounds terribly tempting but for dry skin users it’s not the one that you want.
Who knew I’d love E.L.F. washing powder!? E.L.F. Mineral Face Cleanser is a brand new recently released facial washing powder from the brand that costs eight dollars.
Facial Washing Powder is fairly common in Asia however, the US Market fails to embrace the idea so I find it interesting a budget brand like E.L.F. has launched a successful formula in this realm (yeah, that’s me giving it the a ok to buy, it’s quite good mind you!). Those familiar with Japanese and Korea brands have probably used dozens of various washing powders like this, Fancl is a very popular brand that produces one.
Let’s have a look!
Softymo makes some of my very favorite cleansing products so I quickly snapped up Softymo Hyaluronic Acid Washing Foam a few months ago when it launched at Sasa.com.
Take a peek!
