In Pursuit Of The Perfect Pout

Perfect Pout
 Everyone has a favorite makeup product. Maybe it’s mascara that sets your heart aflutter. Perhaps the release of a new foundation is enough to make you run to a makeup counter, proffering money in exchange for the new wonder product that’s going to change your life. Or perhaps it’s lipstick; the one product that can make your face look alive, your smile brighter, and complete your entire look in one glossy (or matte) swipe.

Slip Silk Pillowcase Review

I was recently sent the Slip Xo pillowcase to test out and review. I have been incredibly curious by this brand for some time now after reading other bloggers’ experiences. One travel blogger even went as far as recommending these cases while you travel so you don’t wake up with sleep lines or creases on your face. It was when Jen Atkin started promoting it, I knew I had to give it a try.

The Face Cleansing balm that Mositurizes while removing makeup

counterbeauty face cleansing balm review

Oh how much I love a beauty product that multitasks! If a product makes my life easier, I’ll love it to the end.

I recently tested the Beautycounter Cleansing Balm. It is a natural face cleansing balm (read: no parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, PEGS, SLS or secrets) that hydrates your skin while removing grit from the day.

Added bonus! It is so easy (and fun) to use.  The product comes in a beautiful glass container. There is a soft, linen, cleansing towel to help remove the product, and two plastic wands to help scoop the product from the container. The wands keep it sanitary so you don’t double dip and helps prevents any bacteria from your hands to mix with the product.

How To Use

Placing the face cleansing balm into my hands, I used circular motions on my face. The balm melted effortlessly into my skin, nearly instantaneously. The makeup lifted easily as well and my face began to shine. Next, I took the cloth that was supplied and dampen it with warm water. I gently removed the balm and residue with the cloth. Afterward, I washed away the rest of the balm with cold water. All done!  While other makeup removers are harsh and drying, I noticed an immediate softness to my skin. I highly recommend this product. It is a super easy way to keep your skin fresh all Summer long!
