Takes alot to impress this girl when it comes to drugstore skincare but Clean & Clear has surprised me again and again the past week and half with a great release of products that bring plenty of quality to the table and an inexpensive price tag to boot.
New Clean & Clear Facial Cleansing Wipes, likey!
Click it for the review!
When I find makeup removing wipes that works it’s much like winning the lottery. Seriously how many wipes really work well out there? I can’t name a ton. If you’re looking for a cheap alternative to MAC Cleansing Wipes you’ll be happy to know Clean & Clean Make Up Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes are just as good and only run about $5-$6 bucks! Hello cheapness!
There isn’t much special about the swipes in regards to cloth or anything like that. It’s a pretty standard wipe as with any wipe. The difference between it and any other wipes is it’s ability to get the job done right. The wipes are saturated nicely with an oil-free remover and a fresh clean scent. They do a great job of quick clean up of eye makeup, waterproof mascara, and other gook that’s built up on your face.
First off, I’d honestly never use a wipe to clean my face every night. I reserve cleaning wipes for days I’m being a lazy bum and can’t be bothered to do my entire skincare cleaning regime, believe you me it’s a regime. These are rather fab for whisking away all my makeup in a quick swipe. Believe it or not they even do a damn good job on waterproof mascara. Mind you, I didn’t get it ALL off but I did get a majority of it off my lashes, nice job. They are on par with MAC wipes aside from the fact that they aren’t as thick but besides this minor detail I’d say they make a rather great budget dupe.
Overall, Clean & Clear has impressed me yet again and restored my faith that good skincare can be found at my local drugstore.
I swear it’s been years since I’ve used Clean & Clear and I almost forgot how much I loved it when I was using it. The new Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Foaming Cleanser reminded me why it was my skincare regime way back when with it’s fresh scent and ability to get my skin sparkling clean, swing! Likey!
You know what to do for the review…!
Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Foaming Cleanser is a brand new oil-free foaming cleanser. It comes in a 6 oz pump for $5.99 (I seen it at Target for $5.49) and is a foaming cleanser. I seriously have an obsession with foaming cleansers, is it me or do you feel the same way?
A pump or two will do your entire face and it’s gentle enough not to dry out skin. It has a super fresh pleasant scent plus did I mention it’s a foam? Loves it! Supposedly it even removes waterproof mascara but I can’t say as I normally remove my mascara prior to washing my face, I never trust a cleanser do it not even my beloved Shu oil.
With it’s inexpensive price tag and rich lathering formula it’s a winner for me. Muse Approved for Purchase! Likes it alot.
If you’re looking for a cheap, inexpensive cleanser that won’t break the bank, cleans your face, smells fresh and clean, and doesn’t dry your skin out or clog pores I’d say grab yourself some Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Foaming Cleanser.
Good stuff, ’nuff said (and you know what a nit picker I am about skincare so this is def one to pick up!).
I’m partitioning Frankie Valli to change the lyrics to Grease is NOT the world in honor of Lush Grease Lighting Spot Treatment.
But don’t tell my sister…she thinks the Earth, the Moon, the Stars revolves around the Jersey Boys…changing the lyrics could be like breaking the law to her.
Lush Grease Lighting is the latest skincare treat from Lush for treating spots, pimples, and all the uglies that pop up on our skin.
Check it after the jump!
Lush Grease Lighting is a blend of witch hazel, thyme, calming rosemary, and antibacterial tea tree water to create an antiseptic for keeping pimples well under control. Mind you this isn’t a skin treatment but a spot treatment. What’s that mean? It means if you have a fat pimple on your forehead before a blind date tomorrow you can dab some of this on to zap that spot right out of your hair. It works a treat on minor pimples, small formations of pimples on places like your chin or forehead, etc….it works to dry pimples out, treat them, and reduce the size of the pimple all while delivering a healthy dose of treatment to clear your skin up.
I have a nice size pimple on the side of my face at the moment which I’m not up for discussing with you but I will for the sake of my review. I applied some Grease Lighting on it last night and the pimple is considerably smaller. I imagine with another dab of this it’ll probably be gone by morning w00t!
The formula is a watery, runny gel which you can tap onto blemishes easily. It’s very gentle so it doesn’t dry out your entire face but it does dry out the area you’re treating however not so much that you’re left with cracked, flaky skin.
If you’re looking for a spot treatment to save your skin Lush Grease Lighting is the way to go. It’s $9.95 and available now from Lush Mail Order or your local Lush store. I trust Lush skincare with my life so it’s a joy to have a quick spot treatment for the times that a rare pimple pops up on my face!
Clean & Clear has introduced a brand new oil-free makeup remover and it’s been around since, check this, March 2009. Why didn’t I know about it before this? Who’s in charge of the memo service? I didn’t get the memo telling me about cheap eye makeup remover…you know how obsessed I am with finding an inexpensive makeup remover! Heads will roll when I find out who messed up.
But for now I have in my possession a bottle of Clean & Clear Eye Make Up Remover and since I’m so in likey with it I’m in a forgiving mood!
$5.95 nails you a 5.5oz a bottle of Clean & Clear Soothing Eye Make Up Remover…yes under $6 bucks and you can have a very good quality remover….thank you jebus, I prayed so hard but didn’t think it would ever happen.
I have one tiny rant but I’ll get to that in sec..
First off this is incredible stuff. This removes eye makeup in a snap plus it doesn’t contain oil so no cloudy, blurred, OMG! I can’t see! feeling. The formula is very much like simple water but it manages to do a very good job of removing waterproof mascara, pigmented eye shadow, etc……
I’m deeply impressed. It does have somewhat the same formula as Lancome Bi-Facil but it’s more watery. My only rant is you have to use alot. I had to do two cotton pads to get everything off my eyes….I wish I could have just did one swipe and be good but I did have to saturate two pads to remove everything. But…I do wear alot of eye makeup in it’s defense. I’m not upset in the least about this as it did a supreme job of getting my waterproof mascara off so I’m discoing!
That Bi-Facial feeling!
Fact is…it’s a killer deal and it works. It’s the best drugstore remover I’ve come across and well worth a pick up. I think it’ll replace…wait for it…my Sephora eye makeup remover. I have to test a bit more before I retire Sephora but it’s looking like Clean & Clear Make Up Remover is winning the coveted position of being the Muse’s eye makeup remover.
Loves it and Muse Approves it for purchase.
Try it, I have a feeling you’ll like it as much as I do.
Bath and Body Works has some new selections up it’s sleeve lately. I was wandering around one in the Hamptons last weekend (nice and quiet thank gawd) and came across the new American Grown Collection. I proceeded over to the sink and tried every single one…teehee! Can’t help myself as the bottles are so terribly tempting with their bright candy colors.
Jump ahead and have a little peep at this new line!
The American Grown Collection is a selection of hand washes and shower gels inspired by great American destinations at a really great price. Steal, SWING! Love a good deal and these are it. Each bottle is a hefty chunky size for the value price of $6.50 per a hand wash (16oz) and $12.50 per a shower gel for $12.50 (24oz).
The selection of scents are as follows:
Washington Apple: In the fertile valleys of Washington State in America’s far west, growers tend orchards that produce the world’s most crisp, ripe apples. Formulated with Apple Extract to help nourish skin, Washington Apple instantly evokes your first bite of a shiny red apple, an unmistakably juicy flavor.
Napa Grape: In the rolling hills of Napa Valley’s wine country, the alluring scent of ripe grapes wafts through the air. Breathe in this irresistible fragrance and experience the intoxicating aroma as grape seed oil conditions and protects skin.
Siesta Key Lemon: Nothing says summer like fresh-cut Meyer lemons from Florida. Sweeter than other lemons, the plump, smooth-skinned citrus produces a sparklingly fresh fragrance. Take an instant vacation to Siesta Key as Lemon Oil refreshes and brightens the skin.
Savannah Mint: A frosty glass of iced tea in a hot Savannah summer is twice as refreshing with a cool sprig of mint. Breathe in this invigorating fragrance and experience the romance of southern charm and gentility while Peppermint Oil energizes your skin and your senses.
Montana Sky: Experience the clear, crisp quality of the mountain air in big sky country with formulas inspired by the vast beauty of an endless blue sky. Bathe your skin in calming spring waters as you inhale a rush of fresh air.
My favorites were Napa Grape and Siesta Key Lemon. I didn’t pick them up while at BBW but I’m sure regretting it now so I’ll probably order ‘em online. If you’re a hand wash junkie like me and all anal about germs these big sizes with such an inexpensive price tag should please.
American Grown Collection is a great beauty budget find and available now at Bath and Body Works!
