Beauty Product Reviews
Each month I’m sharing my favorite beauty product reviews in a post. This post I have themed “best of the best” because these products have truly become some of my very favorites. I’ve been using some seriously awesome products that I mostly discovered at Nordstrom Rack. I had never really shopped at Nordstrom Rack, but I’ve started stopping in each time I’m in Dallas all because of the beauty section. I have found some of my favorite eye shadow color palettes there, and as I will tell you today I found my new favorite face wash there as well.
Best Facial Cleanser
I’ve been searching for a facial cleanser that has multiple features. My face dries out easily, so I need something that works for dry skin yet removes leftover makeup residue. I use makeup wipes before I wash my face, but I still have left over makeup that I need a good cleanser to remove without making my skin flaky and dry. This face wash does the trick, it’s the Stila Coming Clean Cleanser. It leaves my skin feeling SO clean, yet my skin doesn’t feel that dry feeling that I get with most washes. It has the feel of the expensive designer face washes without the designer price.
Best Lengthening Mascara
This month I went through a few different mascaras. Mostly drug store products, until once again, I found a haul of products at Nordstrom Rack. This mascara, in my opinion, is the best lengthening mascara and the best mascara for volume that I have found at this price. This NYX Dolly Eyes mascara is only $9.50! Seriously? I love how it feels lightweight while adding crazy volume. Have you tried it? What do you think?
Best Lotion for Dry Skin
I will preface this beauty product review by saying I only use this moisturizer at nighttime. It is definitely the best nighttime moisturizer I have used. It’s a thick and creamy substance, but it doesn’t leave your skin feeling like a layer of oil is setting on top. I happened to get this with a lotion package I purchased at Sam’s, but it can be found at almost any drugstore, wal-mart, or target. It’s the Curel Intensive Healing Cream. I use it after I’ve removed my makeup and washed my face before bed. I wake up feeling refreshed and my skin feels fabulous. A perfect palette prepared for flawless makeup.
Best Makeup Remover Wipes
I’ve read mixed reviews, however my review for the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes is positive. I’ve tried many different brands, even more pricey ones than neutrogena and they seem to just push the makeup around instead of remove it. I like the way neutrogena’s brand removes hard to remove makeup like eyeshadow and mascara. I don’t know if there are any makeup removers out there that get all of the makeup off, but I use this as a pre-wash to my cleanser and it works perfectly for that.
