Product Rave: Caress Body Wash

Yuh know I love to through in a lil random stuff.

Yet another YouTube recommendation. I swear that 'YouTube Made Me Do It' post is coming soon. Right so initially I was thinking, meh ain't all body washes created equal? Usually I use something from Bath and Body Works or St. Ives but I still made a mental note of the recommendation since the vlogger was practically creaming over this product.
One day moseying along Sunset Crest I spotted this in a convenience store:

I can't remember the price but I wasn't overly concerned. I just had to see what all the fuss was about. Well honeychile, this ting smell good! It takes so little of the product to build up a rich lather, the scent lingers and lights up the entire bathroom. One thing I must note about this 'Sheer Twilight' scent, it has a bit of musk in it so men love it too! In the convenience store this was the only option from the line available. I took my time with this body wash because, while it did smell great, I'm not the biggest fan of musky scents. Low and behold, one day while running errands with Heidi I stumbled upon this:

As seen in Super Centre Warrens

*cue celestial music* That 'White Peach & Silky Orange Blossom' right there? <insert Dutty Android tagline> Again, these were the only products from the line available. I don't find that price unreasonable since I purchase Cetaphil bar soap regularly for just under $13.

It was then that I noticed the line had different "finishes" if you will; exfoliating (two types), silkening (four types) and fine fragrance (four types). From the site: "The rich lather, the silky feel, the fine fragrance composed by the world's best perfumers– all designed to delight your senses and make you feel like a million dollars, every day".
The packaging is well done and easy to maneuver. It's also done in a way that lets you get every last bit out.

All I wanna know is where I can get the rest. You can view full descriptions of each product in the line on the Caress website.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

posted on our Facebook page April 12, 2013 "DUPE ALERT: M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark vs Maybelline Fit Me! in 355 Coconut. Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"
Talk about a throwback!
I watched a dupe video on YouTube recently where this comparison was mentioned and it reminded me that I had the same thought a while ago. The finish on the skin is identical. Since this original post M.A.C has changed the packaging on their Mineralize line and Maybelline has rebranded/re categorised the Fit Me! range into: Dewy/Set + Smooth and Matte + Poreless.
M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
