Cetaphil Face Cleanser

THE HOLY GRAIL OF FACIAL CLEANSERS!!!!

I swear by this stuff. I’m talking about the Cetaphil Gentle Face Cleanser. Really lame story of how I discovered Cetaphil but I’ll tell it anyway. So a few years ago probably at least 5 years ago I’d say? I was reading on Seventeen mag’s website’s Beauty Tips. There was a feature asking models about their skin care routine and a few of the girls mentioned Cetaphil so I decided to try it. BEST PURCHASE EVER!

Cetaphil for sensitive skin is like a gel and does NOT foam. It’s super smooth, has no scent, and its great for all skin types even safe enough to use on babies. Makes your skin SO soft. I even use it as a makeup remover around my eyes. It doesn’t irritate my eyes like a lot of makeup removers do.

I used to have pretty bad skin. Horrid blemishes. After using Cetaphil my skin started clearing up. I really do swear by this stuff. If you’ve been jumping cleanser to cleanser try this one! Its less than $15 depending where you get it and its a huge bottle that’ll last you a long time.

Youngblood Minerals in the Mist

 

Here to review another product again from The Makeup Show LA, the Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics ‘Youngblood Minerals in the Mist.’ The mineral mist I got was the red “recharge” one which is supposed to have a mix of mint, ginger, minerals, and nutrients that are supposed to recharge your skin. These types of mists can be used to a variety of things. I like to use them as a pick me up throughout the day to moisten my face. After putting powder on my face, I’ll use it to set the powder. Sometimes when I have the chalky, dryish look from too much powder or just dry skin, the mist helps smooth it over. The ginger and mint added a nice cool feeling after spraying it which is great. Other mists I’ve tried usually just feel wet until the mist dries. The scent, though, took a while for me to get used to. I thought it smelled a little  odd at first (smelling like a mix of ginger and mint of course) but I’ve grown to like it. The scent might not be for everyone but they definitely perk me up (me and my skin)!

It’s $24 for a 4 oz bottle… a little pricey for something I don’t really consider a necessity but one bottle will last you a really long time. If you’re looking for a new mist-type of product to set your makeup I’d definitely recommend it. Minerals in the Mist also come in two other versions: Refresh and Restore. Refresh with tangerine and grapefruit and Restore has grapefruit, lime, and rosemary. I have yet to try them but I’m hoping to in the future! 🙂

Inglot AMC Cream Foundation

While I was at The Makeup Show LA, I got the Inglot AMC Cream Foundation. This foundation gives a great medium coverage. I’m not really into putting on lots of foundation so the light weight consistency is a huge plus. It comes in 20 colors and it just so happened that the one foundation I got in my bag was the perfect match for my skin color!

How great is that? I’d say it gives me more coverage than i’d want for everyday since I like a light, natural look day to day. I give this foundation a thumbs up! Love Inglot! If you haven’t already try their stuff! They are starting to open up more stores to join their US stores (Miami, LA, NY, Las Vegas, and New Jersey). If you’re not by a store, make sure you check out their website!

BeautySoClean + Giveaway!

Today, my friends, I’m going to share with you one of my favorite products I have. This isn’t something you need to do your makeup everyday but it’s something that will help you in the process. At The Makeup Show LA, I got a chance to pick up some BeautySoClean products and I LOVE them! The products are made to sanitize and disinfect your makeup and the tools you use to apply them. I picked up the cosmetic sanitizer mist, the brush cleaner, and some of the sanitizer wipes.

The cosmetic sanitizer mist is an all around great disinfecting product and it refreshes your products so you can use them longer. The mist can be used on any pressed powders like eyeshadows, blushes, foundations, concealors, etc. Basically you spray the mist on to your product and within seconds the mist will dry and leave you with a ready-to-use, sanitized product.

Now the conditioning brush cleanser has to be my FAVORITE! It comes in a great light mist bottle. You spray it directly on to your brush, brush it on a tissue or paper towel, and within seconds you’re ready to use it again. It’s great when you want to reuse your brush and remove all color that’s already on it. No waiting for your brushes to dry anymore!

Finally, look at these cute little wipes. Perfect for on-the-go! The sanitizer wipes are great for cleaning your eyeliners, mascara wands, eyelash curlers, etc. I like to use this on my sharpeners. Not only are my sharpeners always really dirty from different colors being sharpened but i’m sure there is so much grossness and bacteria going on… that’s how you get PINK EYE! No one wants pink eye. I really like to clean my lipgloss wands too. Pet peeve of mine is when the wand changes colors from applying if over other colors so I use the wipes to clean it off! I also use the wipes when i’m not at home. I don’t like to carry around the bottles so i’ll carry a few of the wipes in my makeup bag and you can dust your brushes on the wipes and it does the job well!

The BeautySoClean products are the best way to prevent spreading germs whether it be bacteria from using your makeup on others or even your own germs. I guaruntee you that after using their products, you’ll see less blemishes because your makeup and tools are cleaner and your makeup will last longer because you don’t have oils ruining your powders. TRY IT!

GIVEAWAY TIME!

I will be doing a giveaway of a mini Cosmetic Sanitizer Mist and Cosmetic Sanitizer Wipes with a little kit explaining the products and a DVD!

To be entered to win the BeautySoClean mini kit, DM me on Twitter saying “BeautySoClean”. Winner will be chosen randomly in a week!

The Pretty Reckless

So I am currently OBSESSED with The Pretty Reckless. An edgy rock band out of New York. You may or may not have heard their single released last May “Make Me Wanna Die” from their debut album “Light Me Up.” Lead singer of the band is Taylor Momsen. YES, Jenny Humphrey from Gossip Girl. Momsen worked with a few producers before settling with current rock producer (opposed to all the other pop producers she was fixed up with.) The Interscope Records artist went through a few band members until she found the ones she is with now.

The album release in the US and around the world was accepted with mixed reviews but I happen to love it. I had no idea when I heard a few songs previously that it was Taylor Momsen doing the vocals and guitar as well. I love the edgy, heavy sound they have. Check them out if you haven’t already!
