Cargo Blu_Ray Polishing Clothes Review

Speaking of exfoliation….we were talking about it a few posts up and since the Muse has a one track mind, might as well stick to the topic she was on earlier….what was I saying?

Oh ya!

Speaking of exfoliation Cargo Blu_Ray Polishing Clothes kinda butter my toast lately!

Jump ahead for a review, a babble, and some pictures!

Cargo Blu_Ray Polishing Clothes are a box of 20 facial exfoliating clothes that are meant to shrub away dead skin and polish your face up to a baby smooth finish.

And they don’t work….

At first anyway.

They do promise the world in a small box like removing makeup, preventing blackheads and ache, and reducing the signs of sun damage and honestly I can’t really say they do ALL that but they do actually make my skin buttery soft but first I had to learn how to use them.

First try they do nothing. I really seen no results at all but than….slowly…I noticed my skin becoming smooth, softer, and my moisturizer was sinking in hells quicker. If you’re as impatient as I am and want to see results double quick you’ll be disappointed as these definately do not give results right away. With patience and proper use you’ll notice a certain smoothness to your skin in about two weeks of use. I’m lucky I didn’t give up right away on them otherwise I’d have not noticed how properly soft my skin was after I used them well over a month.

The clothes are reusable so you can get plenty of use from one package although it is slightly gross to reuse considering bacteria and the likes. I got about 4 uses total from one cloth before I was feeling the need to ditch them. The best results I noticed were when I used these on a already clean, damp skin with a drop of Philosophy Microdelivery squeezed on the cloth.

I was quite frustrated not seeing results right away and I was on the verge of simply tossing the box but I was stubborn and kept at it and now I’m done with my first box and ready for a new one as I’m loving the results. One of my main problems with exfoliating products is the fact that they make my dry skin even more dry and tight. If I choose I can use these on clean, damp skin minus product so it’s a natural way to remove my dry, flaky skin without adding product to an already dry face that will in turn make it feel even worst.

All in all I think they are a fine deal and worth trying out. I liked the results and noticed a grave improvement when applying foundation and moisturizer!

Likey!

Anyone try?

Loves ‘em?

Leaves ‘em?

Housed in a brown glass apothecary jar with pump this slick cleanser exfoliates as well as cleanses, multitasking, we like that too! The product is a nice creamy moisturizing cleanser that contains jojoba beads for exfoliation. It smells heavenly by the very way. It has a clean, crisp citrus scent with a touch of something green, just really fresh and beautiful! Likey!

Does it work?

Yes, it does a fair job of cleansing my skin while sloshing away dry, flaky skin. It’s meant for oily/combination skin which sadly means it does make my skin slightly tight and dry after use as at the moment I am in full blown dry skin mode however I really like how well it exfoliates plus it makes my skin kinda glow after use. I look all fresh and rosy cheeked after a cleanse with this!

If you’re looking for a good cleanser that combines exfoliation as well as being green friendly you might want to considering picking up John Masters Organics Jojoba & Ginseng Exfoliating Face Cleanser.

All in all I liked it but the dry, tight feeling will keep me from using it again until Summer arrives and my skin begins to get oily. My skin will really like this than!

Anyone tried John Masters Organics?

Any recs for other products that are good from the line?

Yay or Nay: Steam Cream

yayornay

By now you’ve probably indulged in your own pot of Steam Cream or not….after reading the Muse’s wonky rave and review about it she’s making the big assumption that she’s convinced you that life can’t go on without a few pots of Steam Cream hanging around your washroom, your vanity, and at your desk.

Miss my review?

Blast you! I guess I forgive you, click here to read it!

Question is, if you did indulge, is Steam Cream a Yay or a Nay for you?

Jump ahead to see what I think!

Cute tins? Check! Fast absorbing? Check! Works on my face, body, hands, and everywhere else in between? Check, check, check!

Steam+Cream+1

What isn’t to love about this multitasking demon of a cream that softens my skin and makes it all pretty again? Multitasking as both a facial and a body cream this amazing moisturizer sinks in on contact and is possibly thee fastest absorbing cream I’ve ever used in my life.

With good for you ingredients and a soothing, healing blend, Steam Cream has been a fast favorite this past Winter and a life saver for my dry skin.

So of course, it’s most definately, a big yay!

yay

Steam Cream must have winged it’s way to your side of the world by now.
