New Purchase! Sabon Body Scrub!!

27 Feb

Last week during a mall trip, I was talked into an expensive body scrub from Sabon.

Because, why not?  $33.00 USD is totally reasonable for oil and salt, no? Want it?  Click here.

Ok, I will admit, I am also a sucker for jasmine and this smells oh so divine.

Here is a list of ingredients:

Their claim?  After you use this scrub, your skin is so moisturized that you don’t need to lotion.

And you know what?  Yeah, that’s kinda true.

This was my first experience with this store and brand.  They also have a line of skin care and soaps.  I am curious about their face masks!

Have you tried a Sabon product?

Review – Dr. Brandt Light Years Away Whitening Renewal Solution

29 Jan

Kassi got me the best Christmas gift – a box full of samples!!! She called it the AnnaBox.  I have a ton and half of stuff to review, so this may take me a few months.

Anyhooooo, first up –  Review – Dr. Brandt Light Years Away Whitening Renewal Solution

wpid-20140124_070827.jpg

The ingredient list on this thing is crazy long, and I forgot to take a picture of it for you.

What it’s supposed to do –

“effective clarifying solution with pomegranate enzymes”

This effective clarifying solution uses pomegranate enzymes to exfoliate away dead skin cells, revealing a clear, even and brighter complexion.

stimulates cell turn over to allow healthier, newer skin to surface

removes dead skin cells, promoting a more even, uniform complexion

brightens skin tone & promotes smoothness

I used this right after I used the Proactiv Fading Pads, and I must say I was more impressed with how much renewing of skin the Pads did vs Dr. Brand.

Dr. Brandt Light Years Away Whitening Renewal Solution retails for $50.00 for 3.9 fl oz of product.   As you can see from my sample, I used a teeny tiny amount compared to what I would get in a full size bottle.

Would my opinion differ had the sample been more generous?  Maybe.  With the bit of solution I had, I rationed it so I could use it for more one day.

To compare, Proactiv+ Mark Fading Pads gave you 5 pads saturated to the max with the solution.

My review 

Shrinks pores

Works like a hard working toner

Pleasant scent

Did it renew my skin?  No

Would I buy?  Probably not for $50.00 unless I could try a larger sample.

This is made with a “marine complex” and “vitamin C”.  I think that salicylic acid works better on my skin to renew, which is not an ingredient in this product.

You may like this if you are not a fan of acids or anything harsh on your skin, you are not looking for a drastic change, you don’t like stuff that stings your face.

What I’m into – Suave Moroccan Infusion Lotion

21 Jan

I saw tweets about  Suave Moroccan Infusion Lotion and was intrigued.  The blogger who tried it, fell in love.  As a result, I needed it.

My Review – This smells AMAZING.  I can’t put my finger on the scent, but it smells what I imagine an Arabian Princess from a fairy tale smells like.

It moisturizes very well and makes you skin very soft.

The consistency is a bit more runny/watery than the Vaseline lotion I recently gushed over.  However, this doesn’t impact it’s skin loving effects.

Repurchase?  HECK YES.

My skin loves this.
