Clean & Clear Shine Control Facial Scrub with Lemongrass & Fruit Extracts

The Clean & Clear Shine Control Facial Scrub with Lemongrass & Fruit Extracts saved my after flight tired face on my recent trip to New York city. GOOD. This face scrub feels incredibly invigorating in the morning, or really anytime. The scent is very relaxing. It is gentle enough to use every day (works for me!). Although it’s a scrub the exfoliating beads are not coarse, or as I call it ‘aggressive’. It’s a cross between a face scrub and a face wash. And you can get it at your local drug store without spending an arm and a leg.

Formulated with Salicylic Acid and 100% natural green tea, this new two-step regimen offers an effective, yet gentle, acne solution.

La Roche-Posay Rosaliac Gelee Micellar Make-up Removal Gel

I’m always on the look out for great makeup removers. I like the process of removing my makeup before bed easy, clean , and very simple. This is why I love La Roche-Posay Rosaliac Gelee Micellar Make-up Removal Gel, $24.50. It literally feels like water on your face, maybe because one of its ingredients is actually La Roche-Posay’s Thermal Spring Water? Skin feels fresh as soon as you apply this makeup remover on your face. It’s fragrance-free, not oily, and very simple to remove or wipe off. Which means, there isn’t a residue left after you apply. Do you know the feeling? Major plus!!  It felt gentle and didn’t irritate my skin. OK to remove eye makeup as well. And, it’s available at CVS *.

Fight Back Against Flakes: Wearing a liquid foundation is a great way to achieve a dewy glow—but if you apply it over dry, flaky skin the results can be less than satisfactory.
