Product Rave | First Aid Beauty (FAB) Face Cleanser


I purchased a First Aid Beauty kit in December mostly to try out their Facial Radiance Pads that I'd heard so much about. I still haven't opened those but what I have been using since my REN Clarimatte T-Zone Control Cleansing Gel ran out is the Face Cleanser.

From the site: "A MILD FACE CLEANSER THAT FEELS LUXURIOUS
FAB Face Cleanser gently cleanses the skin, removes surface oils, make up, dirt and grime. Its whipped texture transforms into a rich cream when blended with water. It is infused with a powerful botanical antioxidant blend that works hard to scavenger free radicals.

WHO SHOULD USE IT?
FAB Face Cleanser is ideal for sensitive or irritated skin, skin that is undergoing treatment or as a gentle alternative for healthy skin.

BENEFITS
Preserves the natural oils that protect the skin. Calms redness and irritation. PH-balanced to maintain the natural acidity of the skin. Daily use will result in fewer flare ups and reduced skin reactivity.

FEATURES
No parabens, Harsh Chemicals or Colorants.
Safe for Sensitive Skin.

Key Activities: HEAL AND SOOTHE: Allantoin, Aloe Barbadensis
Leaf Extract
COMBAT FREE RADICALS: FAB Antioxidant Booster
MOISTURIZE/BARRIER PROTECTION: Glycerin

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Stearyl Alcohol,Sodium PCA, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Chrysanthemum Parthenium (Feverfew) Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Allantoin, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Palm Kernel/Coco Glucoside, Glyceryl Stearate, Disodium EDTA, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol
".


The description in the marketing blurb is absolutely correct. The lightweight pearl hued cream depenses easily from the plastic tube and quickly becomes an even more creamy solution when mixed with water. It doesn't foam a lot but does adequately cleanse without totally stripping the skin of all its moisture. 

Solution when mixed with water

5 oz retails for $20USD while 8 oz goes for $26USD; available from the First Aid Beauty website, Sephora.com and Sephora stores. This is a product I'd recommend to anyone because it's gentle yet effective. After my experience with the REN Rosa Centifolia Foaming Cleanser I especially appreciate skin care that is fragrance free like this one.

p.s. From that FAB kit I gave my Wife the Ultra Repair Cream and she absolutely loves it. She has credited that product with single handedly saving her skin during the grim NYC winter. Seems like I need to explore more products from this line.

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.

#FlashbackFriday | Beauty in Panama

Panama is most definitely beautiful. It was never a place I intended to visit so let me begin by thanking Innovate Barbados and COPA Airlines for the opportunity. COPA Airlines sponsored Innovate Barbados 2018 and provided three tickets for attendees to any COPA Airlines destination in the Caribbean or Central America. Panama was being promoted as a shopping destination - cause yuh know how Bajans love tuh shop!

If you're new to this blog, when a post starts with 'Beauty at/in...' it's not about the places' landscapes. It's a beauty blog after all; we're all about what cosmetics are available.


Having done no research about Panama, I was shocked to see the variety of brands available there. Panama is home to the largest mall in the Americas: Albrook Mall.


Very popular brands are available in Panama; whether it's via stand alone stores or counters in Cave Shepherd  / JC Penny-esque department stores. They're a lot of pictures ahead to be prepared to s…
