The ingredients list on my product packaging reads: Water, Glycerin, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Hydrolyzed Potato Starch Dodecenylsuccinate, Potassium Acrylates Copolymer, Hydroxyacetophenone, Polysorbate 20, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance, Linoleamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Sodium Hydroxide, Citric Acid, Polyquaternium-10, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid.

Is that the hyaluronic acid they are bragging about at the end of the list? 😕 Anyho, this product is ok. I mean, it gets the job done. I'd purchase the Ultra Gentle Daily Face Cleanser before this any day because: a) this is more scented (and it's a weird scent too) and, b) this costs $26.89BDS for just 6 oz. Yeah, one pump is enough especially if you're also using a Konjac Sponge; so it will last a while. But the other one will last much longer.

Neutrogena have really put a lot of money into marketing this Hydro Boost line but if the touted ingredient is barely in there then it seems like they're just overpriced.

The solution is a transparent liquid that lathers and rinses easily. It didn't leave my skin feeling stripped (glycerin is the second ingredient). The scent is noticeable upon first use but like most things, you'd get used to it after a while.

Have you tried anything from the Hydro Boost line? Do you read the ingredients before you purchase a skincare product? Let us know in the comments.

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.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
