REN Micro Polish Cleanser

My morning started with this face cleanser: REN Micro Polish Cleanser and it’s simply lovely. It exfoliates skin with amber microbeads, they feel gentle. It lathers nicely but not too much to a point where it’s hard to rinse off. And it has a citrus refreshing scent. Other Bio Active ingredients include: Papaya Enzyme, Glycolic and Lactic Acid, Arctic Seabuckthorn Oil.

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment

My recent skincare discovery: Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment. I love to exfoliate my skin and always on the look out for the best ones. This one by Kate Somerville is colored green and smells good. I can use in the shower which is a plus. My skin is not that very sensitive but this one did have a slight burning feel but after using it few times it’s not as bad. The feeling is like when you apply an intensive mask it feels strong at first but then it goes away. I like the after feel, my skin is super smooth. So maybe it’s worth it.

NIVEA Touch of Sparkle Cream Oil Body Wash

Best Body Wash: Tried and loved NIVEA Touch of Sparkle Cream Oil body wash, $6.49. The calla scent is amazing and the diamond powder leaves skin soft and shimmering (and you know how much Marta loves shimmer!). I also love NIVEA Touch of Radiance  Cream Oil  body wash for days I like to exfoliate my body. This one has a light lime blossom scent which is super fresh. Men also love it this body wash!

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 *.
