Suave Skin Solutions: Smoothing with Cocoa Butter and Shea #Review #BeautyByMe

DSC_0183

I was able to score a VoxBox from Influenster and part of the Fiesta VoxBox included a Suave Smoothing lotion bottle. The scent was so intense, that it permeated the box and it’s content. This would be a bad thing but this lotion smells divine, so it turned into a good thing. As much as I love scents, many perfumes and the such tend to aggravate my skin but so far all Suave branded products have been kind to me from hair to lotions, and even the leave-in serums.

Retail Price Point: $2.29 for a generous 10 ounce bottle

Verdict:
We established the scent factor is strong with this one but so is the moisture the lotion provides. The formula is very silky and smooth, so it tends to distribute a good barrier that is both nourishing to your skin and you notice a visual change immediately. I was concerned about feeling like their was an oily film and thankfully my skin seemed to welcome the lotion so much, which it absorbed every last drop but still left me with a soft touch when felt. I applied it after shaving and experienced zero issues when it came to things like clogged pores and/or irritation. The price for the amount of product is also fair and with Fall being here, that means I need to start preparing my skin in case we have a very cold Winter season. I will not only love how my skin feels, but that scent is just intoxicating…….but in good way!

Klout Perk: New Garnier Clean+ Purifying Foam Cleanser Review #CleanPlus

Formulated for Combination Skin suffers, this new cleanser promises to deliver a better clean, plus rebalance your skin.

I received a bottle courtesy of Garnier and Klout. I was interested because I tend to navigate towards foam cleansers anyways, so this was already a perfect fit for me, plus I do suffer from skin with an attitude. My combination skin/t-zone horror goes from being oily to even dry. It just can’t pick a side if it’s life depended on it. I think my flip-flopping comes from times I over cleanse and turn a semi-oily spot into a dry dead zone. I then could peel if I continue this route, so I’m hoping Garnier forces my skin to just behave…..give me just one season where it says, “let’s be normal for Spring”.

The Purifying Foam Cleanser features:

  • Deeply Cleans and removes Make-Up
  • Oil Free
  • With Results being visible after one use
  • After 1 week’s time, skin is softened and refreshed
  • Infused with Antioxidants
  • The Cleanser also has a nice Grapefruit & Pomegranate scent

Test Run, Day 1:

I skip the towelette I usually use to remove make-up because this cleanser states it has that covered. One and a half pumps and the product comes out perfectly foamy and not the type that collapses within a few seconds of coming in contact with air. You get a rich foam that disperses nicely over the skin and I did notice a full on attack on my eyeliner, mascara, and eye shadow. My make-up surrendered and I was left with skin that felt “normal”. You know, not tight like I have plastic wrap pulled over my face but also no left-overs from my cosmetics. Just freshly clean.

I use the cleanser for a total period of a week to see if I am happy with the performance……then week #2 and so forth.

Final Verdict:

I don’t break out and the cleanser has been 100% successful at always delivering a freshly clean surface after I wash my make-up off. It’s cost effective and in my opinion does a better job than my former towelette because I always saw the towelette as a “pre-clean”. You wipe with the wet cloths but I never felt my skin was clean sometimes it even felt more un-breathable than when I had make-up on. I swore it would cause clogged pores if I did not use my face wash after, so double the expenditure there. The Garnier Clean+ for combination skin, did not over dry my delicate skin around the eyes, cleansed the oily spots around my chin and center of my forehead (told you I was an oddball when it came to skin), and let my normal skin just pretend like everything is fine and dandy. The foam also feels nice and smells inviting…..I at least felt more relaxed after experiencing the Pom & Grapefruit aroma so don’t burst my bubble! Call it a face cleanse with a side of aromatherapy.

Price Point: Retails for $5.99 but I did see Target had it at $5.39. You add a manufacture coupon, Target Store coupon, plus the Cart Wheel app., and use your Target credit card with purchase……well, try not to smile too hard because that causes wrinkles 🙂
