Garnier Ultra Lift 2 in 1 Wrinkle Reducer Serum + Moisturizer

Garnier has some new wrinkle reducer out. Notice that snarky way I said that.

Sorry…I just don’t completely buy into all of Garnier’s claims and think they could do so much more with their products particularly when they are creating gems like their gel moisturizers. Guys, let’s see more of that good stuff!

This one is a 2 in 1 product that features a helix swirl of moisturizer plus the addition of serum. A single product to firm skin and hydrate while it’s doing the anti-aging bit.

Interestingly enough I’m seeing more and more products at my local drugstore that have testers out. That includes color cosmetics as well as skincare.

Mmm +1 for the drugstore!

MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Eye Cream

I’m quite excited about the new MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisture Eye Cream!

This one is infused with MAC’s Charged Water Technology and promises to moisturize as it reduces dark circles, lines, and puffiness. I’m not relying on it completely do erase fine lines and aging woes but I am highly interested in how hydrating it is!

It’s on my list.

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water

We’re seeing a little action on the cleansing water front this season!

These are pretty popular in the Asia market so it doesn’t surprise me that the Western one is finally seeing more of them.

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water is a no rinse cleanser with a soap-free formula that includes Hydrosenn+ which is an ingredient supposedly proven to relieved immediate hydration with a lasting effect. Hydrosenn+ plus is supposedly more effective than hyaluronic acid.

They had me at more effective than hyaluronic acid.

If you can’t stomach the price of MAC’s version this one is cheaper at $14 versus and bigger at 5 oz.

MAC Mineralize Charged Water Cleanser

Adding ALOT of the new MAC skincare goodies to my wishy list today!

MAC Mineralize Charged Water Cleanser a lightweight cleanser formulated with Super-Duo Charged Water technology. It removes all makeup (except waterproof and long-wearing types) with a wipe—no rinse-off required.

Those who are Asian Skincare junkies might see it as a Mandom Express type deal!

Basically, it translates as, the lazy girl’s guide to removing makeup quickly. Sadly, it isn’t as strong as Mandom’s version since it fails on the waterproof mascara you might be wearin’!

Damn!

But hey, I’m all for simple, fast, and easy on nights I just want to hit the sack.

Proactiv Refining Mask Review

Proactiv Refining Mask is a deep cleansing sulfur face mask that helps to deep clean and minimize pores.

I tried a sulfur mask from one of my favorite brands a few years ago and holy cow it smelled awful, rotten eggs anyone?

Surprisingly enough this mask has a fresh floral scent, seriously, for something that contains a ton of sulfur I expected it to smell super bad so I was surprised.

I’m suffer from drier skin and not a ton of problems with spots or acne but this is a nice way to clear up any issues should they rise up and obviously a great one should you have battle with acne daily.

Proactiv was kind enough to send over a sample for me to try out and I gave it a whirl because I’m pretty much up for trying out anything new in the skincare world. Love beauty but skincare junkie I happen to be as well!

This is a creamy mask that you can apply all over your skin and leave on for 10 minutes proceeding to rinse after the time is up. I held off using it until I had skin issues that skin issue happened to be a breakout on my jaw line from holding a phone against my face all day explaining and re-explaining a return premium to a client of mine ugh!

This didn’t clear up my problem completely but it did try up the spots I had and I followed up with a little Proactiv Treatment Gel and I was go to go. Didn’t have to whip out a band aid and plead to people that I really was hiding a scratch under it and not a big old pimple!

Got spots?
