Makeup Melter

I have always struggled with getting all of my makeup off. Whether I wear a lot or a little, it is always tough! I’ve used countless brands of makeup wipes and micellar water, but it doesn’t make my skin feel cleansed and soft. There are tons of beauty gurus on YouTube that talk about this product, and even with the hefty price tag, I gave it a shot. 

The brand: Clinique

The product name: Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm

The price: $29/ 3.8 oz jar

This product has an interesting consistency. It is very soft, and melts in your fingers like coconut oil. It doesn’t leave a film on the face or clog pores like raw coconut oil does. I normally take a quarter size amount, warm it in my hands, and rub. EVERYWHERE. This stuff works great on mascara and eye makeup. Then, once I look like a clown with smeared makeup, I used either a damp cloth or a makeup wipe and remove the product. My skin is left sooo baby smooth and makeup free. It’s gentle enough for any skin type. This stuff is expensive, but in my opinion, it is the only product that completely removes all makeup, even glitter!

Talk it out Thursday 

Hey everyone! For this week’s talk it out Thursday, I am choosing to discuss a skin care product that will rock your world. 

The brand: Dermalogica 

The product name: Daily Superfoliant

The price breakdown: $58/ 2oz or $18/ 0.45 oz

The Daily Superfoliant is designed to smooth your skin by cleaning pores and prevent premature aging. All of that is music to my ears! But, does it really work? For this hefty price tag I felt that I needed to be rather harsh when it came to my review. Ultimately, this stuff is amazing. It makes my skin feel baby smooth right after using it. It is a powder that turns into cleanser when used with water. This allows the user to have more control of the amount of product being used and to not saturate it too much with water. I like to use this after cleansing my skin with my normal product. It definitely makes the skin a little tight, so I don’t wait long to apply my moisturizer after. I use this every day/every other day and I notice a significant difference in the smoothness of my skin. For people with sensitive skin, I would decrease the usage to twice a week. This stuff really works!
