Most Repurchased Skincare

For regular readers you probably all this stuff already but just incase you need it all in one place...

Olay 4-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths

When I first started using these they were bigger, the pack was cheaper and they only came in one type. Alas, the price of progress. I love these to take on the go since they do a very good job of removing makeup.

If you're wondering about face or eye creams know that I mostly use samples. Eye cream samples take forever to go through! I am a fan of the Clinique All About Eyes gel/cream - I bought the full size for $134BDS LP after using a sample. For face moisturizers I usually stick with REN Clean Skincare again. Currently I'm using their Frankincense Revitalising Night Cream (when I remember) and their Vita-Mineral Radiant Day Cream. As well as the Mario Badescu Skincare Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex.

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*

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…
