Clarisonic, Neutrogena, Revlon and more...

So I bought a few things this month and some stood out more than others. So, I thought I would share.

First up: Neutrogena Make up Remover Cleansing Towelettes (CVS $7.99)

I love the clean scent and it removes make up without leaving a sticky residue. One sheet usually does the trick, depending on how much make up you're wearing.

Second: Burt's Bees Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream (CVS $8.99)

I've been a fan of Burt's Bees for a long time. After two years of trying different products, I came right back. I have combination skin and this cleansing cream removes dirt and make up while leaving my face feeling cool and refreshed. No seriously, there's a cool tingling feeling on my face after I've finished washing. Chamomile. Gotta love it.

I also like that it is 97.99% organic. I am not a fan of cleaning my face with cleansers that contain ingredients I can't, no don't want to, pronounce and include chemicals that have many uses such as making plastic, sealing pipes...ect.

Third: Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick (CVS $8.99)

The first one I bought was Fuschia and I immediately fell in love. I didn't wait to get home to try it. As so as I got in the car I cracked it open and put it on. The color payoff is beautiful. It's called ColorBurst for a reason. Fuschia was soon followed by Raspberry and Rosy Nude. Each color is as beautiful as the last.

Fourth and Final: The Clarisonic Mia (Sephora $119)

I have heard wonderful things about the Clarisonic Facial Cleansing system. I thought it was too expensive, so I decided to pass on it (although I secretly wanted to try it.) As luck would have it, I came into possession of a gift card. The Clarisonic Mia is the smaller, "travel size" version of the products. It rotates at one speed and has an automatic timer that turns off after the recommended one minute of use.

I've been using this at night before bedtime for the last week and I love it. For me it is one of the products I wish I purchased a long time ago. My skin is noticeably smoother and my face has a nice glow.

October was a good month.
