Vichy Cleansing beauty oil-take it all off!

Because I’m all about the pre-cleanse.  Dermalogica introduced me to this and I’ve been hooked ever since.  My quandry with cleansing oils is that I want to find one that works well for a decent price (um shu umera you are OUT of the running).

So I’m happy to say I have found a GREAT oil for a decent price.  My wallet is loving me these days.

Vichy cleansing beauty oil contains the benefits of an oil and a cleansing milk in one step.  It contains micellar technology to gently remove makeup and impurities and cameilia oil to improve softness, radiance and smoothness.

-contains soothing and fortifying Vichy Thermal Spa Water

-Paraben free

-Tested on sensitive skin

And it does a GREAT job on removing my waterproof mascara and eye makeup-this is one pass, holding the cotton round on each eye for 10 seconds.

Overall, I recommend this cleansing oil as a first step to your night time skin care routine.  It will dissolve the dirt and impurities and allow your products to work better-what’s not to love?

I’m curious about…….pur minerals spring 2014 cleansing line

I have my favorites from pur minerals (and my not-so-favorites) and recently received a ‘look book’ describing the products in the line. I’m fairly curious about these products and would like to share the information I’ve received.  Keep in mind I do NOT have samples at this time of these products….this is more of a “Look at this-what do you think” type of post.

Simplicity Gentle Cleanser-Normal, sensitive, oily and dry skin

Simplicity

Sulfate-free formula gently but effectively washes away oil, impurities and makeup without irritating the skin or drying it out. Featuring honey extract, shea butter, and Sepicalm, a combination of water lily and a key amino acide, this extremely mild daily cleanser helps hydrate and calm the skin as it cleanses.
My initial impression after reading description: One cleanser for all skin types? Is this possible?

In the Clear clarifying cleanser-Oily skin

InTheClear_COPY2

Multi-action cleanser that gently exfoliates, clarifies and soothes irritable and problematic skin. As lactic acide melts away pore-clogging surface debris, tea tree oil reduces the appearance of excess oil for a shine-free, matte finish. Sulfate-free formula is never harsh or over-drying; this clarifying cleanser calms and cools with a refreshing mix of lavender, peppermint and aloe.
My initial impression after reading description: This is a cleanser I’d like to have in my arsenal for breakouts!

MiracleMist_COPY2

Containing over 79 essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids, this moisturizing mist infuses your skin with vital moisture to help soothe and refresh your face, hair and body and even set makeup.  Anti-bacterial sulfur keeps blemishes at bay for clear skin the face and body.

My initial impression after reading description:  Is this like my Urban Decay b6 spray? Or is it more like MAC fix+? Do I need 79 essential vitamins and minerals on my face?

Melt away makeup emulsifier-Normal, sensitive and oily skin

MeltAway_COPY2

All natural makeup remover that’s tough on even waterproof makeup, while remaining gentle on delicate skin.  12 essential oils, including Argan oil, Avocado, Macademia, and Jasmine Oils unite, eliminate makeup, condition skin and nourish lashes.  Oil-busting formula provides a thorough pre-cleanse as oil attracts oil to cut through excess oil and stubborn cosmetics.

My initial impression after reading description:  So is this an oil?  Sounds like it.  If so, I WANT IT. I’m a huge fan of pre-cleansing with oils or balms.  My only hangup may be the smell-as I’m not sure what a combination of Argan, Avocado, Macademia AND Jasmine oil smells like.  Any clues?

My initial impression after reading description:  A mud masque? Meh, why not….wonder if it’s like GlamGlow.  That’s one of my favorites.  How messy is it?
