Review: Beautisol Exscrub Me Citrus Face Exfoliant



It's scrub-a-dub review time! This one in particular is by a brand called Beautisol founded by Sinead Norenius, a fellow beauty blogger and licensed aethetician. She is well known for her Beautisol Self Tanning products featured on HSN.com. Who doesn't love that fake and bake glow!

Excrub Me is a citrus face exfoliant made to give your skin that squeaky deep cleansed, polished finish by removing dead skin cells and eradicating impurities. It is infused with certified organic orange peel, lemon, and grapefruit extracts. Best part of it all, it's paraben-free, sodium laurel/laureth sulphate free, vegan and cruelty free (PETA certified)!




As you can see in the picture above, a pea size amount is all you need to cover your entire face. The scrub is all white with tiny red jojoba beads that helps remove dead skin cells. Feels a bit gritty and like a micro exfoliant type of texture. Not really used to applying this type of exfoliant so it was a little weird at first... then I got used to it after the second time.

Not sure if I recommend this for sensitive skin types because of the texture. Might be a little bit rough and harsh on the skin perhaps? I could be wrong but just from my own personal experience I felt that it was not the most gentle feel on the skin. Normally, I would use my St. Ives Apricot Scrub or a Vitamin C scrub that feels creamy with exfoliating beads. It definitely feels amazing after you rinse off since all your dead skin cells have washed away! Hooray for clean exfoliated skin! Personally, I wouldn't say this is my favorite or the best I have tried but it does what it says it's supposed to do. That's what is important right? :)

Directions: Dampen skin and apply a small amount of Exscrub Me to fingertips, then massage onto face in circular motions. Rinse well with warm water and pat dry.

Perlier Shea Butter with White Lily Hand Cream



Any hand cream addicts out there? *raises hands* I am definitely one of them. I couldn't be more excited to show you what this amazing product has to offer. It is my first time hearing about this particular brand Perlier but when I saw shea butter in the description, I was not afraid to move forward. This hand cream is formulated with 100% organic shea butter and extracts of white lily. Doesn't white lily just make it sound more divine and luxurious? I mean, this was all crafted in 150 acres of botanical gardens located in Turin, Italy. I squealed when I heard it was made in Italy!!!


Benefits:
*Helps improve the look of the skin
*Effective beauty treatment for dry, prematurely aged skin
*Helps fight free radicals and protect against environmental aggresors
*Recommended for areas most prone to dryness
*No preservatives


My personal experience:
When I first opened my package, I was so shocked by the size of this product. I mean it's huge! 6.7 fl. oz. of heavenly goodness in my hands. Average hand creams are only about 3oz or less? From there I knew I would be able to use this more frequently over saving it thinking it will run out too soon. The scent... oh the scent... I died and went to heaven. Smells oh so beautiful and soothing. The scent was a bit of citrus mixed with rosy floral but not overpowering. My hands just smells so amazing once I apply this on. This is a non greasy formula yet stays very hydrated and replenishes your dry cracked skin. I wash my hands probably 100 times day and let me tell you, it is not very pretty. As you may know shea butter is an essential ingredient that helps nourish and protect your skin so it is so important to be included in the hand creams I choose. It does my skin good... very good! Very impressed with the quality of this product and definitely would buy this again once I run out. Perlier also carries varieties of other luxury bath and body products that would make a perfect gift item for those you love! Can't wait to try their other products.

Perlier Shea Butter with White Lily Hand Cream $24.00 6.7 fl. oz.

Pure Silk Raspberry Mist Shave Cream



Just wanted to share a quick review of Pure Silk's Raspberry Mist Shave Cream. This was part of the Influenster Vow Vox Box I received a few months ago. I never tried the brand and always use shave creams so this was a fun experience. First of all, when I read raspberry on the can I just imagined a yummy scented product. Yep, it smelled divine and felt like a fluffy whipped cream without the cherry on top. Loved how it felt against my skin and left a soft finish afterwards. Super moisturizing and gentle on the skin.


Pure Silk Raspberry Mist Shave Cream:

-Rich lather protects against nicks and cuts, while providing a comfortably close shave
-Leaves your skin feeling smooth
-Moisturizing formula softens and nourishes your skin as you shave
-Contains no CFCs
-Rust-proof aluminum can
-Fresh Raspberry Mist scent



You can find these at your local drugstores and groceries near you. They are priced around $2.49 depending on your area. Walmart has a 2pack (8oz each) special for only $3.54! The best part of this in my opinion is the fact that the can is RUST PROOF! Don't you hate it when your aluminum can products stains your bath tub? Every product should be made this way, why not? I would definitely purchase this the next time I'm in the market for shave cream. Highly recommend it. =)



*I received this #PureSilk shave cream complimentary as a courtesy from Influenster. Thank You!

HASK Hair products



Who doesn't love magical products that makes your hair smell and feel like a million bucks? Let me introduce you to HASK, a line of affordable hair products that will give your locks a gorgeous makeover!

Hask provides four colletions that suits your hair needs. Keratin, Argan Oil, Macadamia Oil and Monol Oil. I was sent the entire set of Keratin and Argan Oil hair products. Came inside a cute little plastic caddy that I can use to store them into. Those are always handy to keep around! As you may know both Keratin and Argan Oil are key essentials to keep your hair protected, restored, and repaired! The highlight of this brand is that they are made free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, alcohol, and artificial colors. You know it's legit when all that junk is not mixed in.



The Keratin line is meant to help soften and renew your damaged hair. Best for dry and color treated hair. It will give your dull hair that radiant shine you'd never seen before. The scent is divine! Imagine a tropical fruit basket scent lingering on your hair.... mmmmmm. I knew by the scent of this product that I would immediately fall in love with the results. I used the smoothing shine oil after towel drying my hair while it was still damp. Leave your hair silky, shiny and restored! Deep conditioner I recommend using 1-2x a week, switching with your regular conditioner.


The Argan Oil also known as "liquid gold" is infused with Moroccan Argan Oil and meant to help strengthen and restore damaged hair. Got frizzy hair? This magic in a bottle will turn your hair around from fuzzy to fancy! Very similar to what the Keratin offers, it will give deeply moisturize your hair and protect it from future breakage and damages. Not a shocking surprise, this also smells very delicious and extremely addicting scent. I am all about scents because when you have good smelling hair, that's the end of story. Loved the way my hair felt silky smooth after I air dried it. You can definitely tell the difference when this is being used and not. It's like the difference of having a good or bad hair day. Big deal!


Both the products can be found at your local drugstore, supermarket (Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Harris Teeter, Rite Aid, Shop Rite, Kmart, Drug Mart, Family Dollar). This is priced around $4.77 for a 12oz shampoo & conditioner on Walmart.com. I am sure the price varies within store to store but I am assuming it is around $4-5 a bottle. Considering the brand being free of bad ingredients and only provide the best for your hair, this is fairly cheap! I highly recommend it.
