Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Face Cleanser - Foaming Formula

As I said here, as long as you don't have sensitive skin, cleanser is one part of your skincare routine where you can save some coins. So I tried a new(ish) inexpensive cleanser.

I got the foaming version but there's a Creamy Formula that Caroline Hirons said was comparable the popular one from Cetaphil. In Massy Stores, at the time of purchase, this was approximately $28BDS. I say approximately cause the price tag under this product may not have correlated to it. While that price isn't the cheapest it's a great value for 12 fl. oz. This will last you quite a while.

From their website:

"Benefits

Now you can get the best of gentle AND the best of clean – without any compromise. With patented technology, our effective yet gentle hypoallergenic cleanser removes excess oil, dirt and even makeup without disturbing skin's natural moisture barrier to leave it feeling soft—never too dry, never too tight. Unlike some other gentle or sensitive skin cleansers that can leave behind residue, this oil-free face wash rinses completely clean.

It’s formulated with a hypoallergenic fragrance that’s free of known skin allergens and irritating essential oils. It’s been clinically proven to be gentle for cleansing sensitive skin, including acne-prone skin, eczema, rosacea and atopic dermatitis.
  • Dermatologist developed for even sensitive skin
  • Soap-free
  • Non-comedogenic
HOW TO USE
  • Wet face.
  • Pump Cleanser into hands and work into lather.
  • Massage face gently.
  • Rinse."
One full pump dispenses a lot of product. If you use a Konjac Sponge, a half pump will do.

The ingredients on my bottle and the website match. 

While the marketing claims this is safe for sensitive skin the inclusion of cocamidopropyl betaine would give those that are allergic to coconut oil products pause. Normal to oily non-sensitive skin folks should be ok. My face didn't feel dry or tight after use. Considering how much product you get for the money this was a safe buy. The pump made the product easy to dispense. We could only hope that one day soon Neutrogena would do like other brands and make the commitment to move to more eco-friendly packaging.

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.

Purified Lactic Acid: One of the most hydrating Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Lactic Acid exfoliates the surface layers of t…

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.
