Daily Concepts - Exfoliating Body Scrubber
Regular texture where you need more exfoliation and soft texture for the more gentle parts of your body. (You just need to choose your side.)
This is what makes me unique:
- SMART TECHNOLOGY*
- Label with indicator that fades when it’s time to replace Your Body Scrubber.
- Natural cotton base layer with nylon exfoliating loops for the ideal texture.
- Environmentally friendly, soy based foam material (inside the scrubber) to create a rich lather.
- Clinically, allergy and dermatologist tested.
- Cruelty free
- Made in North America.
This little body scrubber retails for approximately $5.00 USD. I did try it out...it's fairly decent. I like how snug it sits on your hand while using, easy to maneuver around different body parts while using. However, this will not do anything for your back whatsoever, it would need to be attached to a handle of sorts for that. The textures on both sides are nice, you can choose the rougher side or the softer side. It did lather up the body wash nicely, and it also worked well with a creamier non-lathering body wash as well. I'd say for the price, probably a nice little travel companion...but I'd choose something more convenient, personally, for daily home use. This was also nice, if used gently, to exfoliate my hands for when they get overly dry from Northern Canadian weather and daily over washing. Just don't use too much pressure if using in on your hands.
Universal Beauty Cosmetics Secret Flush
Instantly brightens up a dull day with this skin-loving cream blusher & lip stain duo. Secret Flush glides on the skin like silk and blend effortlessly. The innovative lab-enhanced formulation is designed to offer an amazing glow and subtle flush to the cheek & lips. Blush & Pout ?
Comes in 4 Joyful Shades
This cream blusher & lip stain retails for $20.00 USD. The colour 04 Nectar is another one of those warm undertoned almost Nars Orgasm-ish, but not totally, colours. It's quite pretty, it does blend easily, as it claims, and I found it to be build-able on the cheeks. Making this cream blush easy to wear more on the sheer side, as well as a bit more full colour. It gave a slight tint to the lips, but nothing major, at all, and it was not really very buildable on the lips.
