Review – Dr. Brandt Light Years Away Cream Cleanser

30 Jan

Hello Lovelies!

Dr. Brandt Light Years Away Cream Cleanser pairs nicely with the Dr. Brandt Light Years Away Whitening Renewal Solution I reviewed yesterday.

Full size 1.0 fl oz retails for $45.00

My Review 

First impression, I was shocked how luxurious this felt.  It has a very thick and silky consistency, sort of like hair conditioner.

It left my skin feeling very clean.  It actually squeaked!  I guess, sort of like really clean hair which makes sense since it looks like conditioner. haha

Removes eye make up easily.

No greasy residue or tight feeling to the skin afterwards.

Is it brightening?  Not after 3 days of usage it wasn’t.  Could it be if I used it longer? Maybe???  And for $45.00 I really hope it does what it is supposed to do.

I never spend a lot of money on a cleanser. I prefer to invest in treatments and moisturizers.

Would I buy this if budget wasn’t an issue?  Probably.  I really enjoyed using it.

Have you used Dr. Brandt before?

September 2013 Julep Maven Box – Bombshell box!

11 Sep

2013-09-04 20.39.42 2013-09-04 20.37.13

 

I’m a bombshell now!  I am loving on the bronzey/winey/glittery one called Karmen.  I’m rocking it right now.  Boom, glitter nails.

The real winner of this box is the facial cleansing oil.  It is called the Bare Face Cleansing oil $22.40 if you are a Maven, Otherwise it’s $28.00.

My review:  This actually takes off most of my waterproof mascaras.   The formulas that an actual makeup remover had trouble removing, this stuff succeeds.  It smells so good.  Sort of citrusy. Feels good on the skin, and It is actually helping with my stupid blackhead problem on my nose.

For real, I now look forward to washing my face at night.  Unless this gives me a wart or something catastrophic, I will dish out the $20+ for this gem.
