My new favorite cleanser? It’s only about 6 bucks.
Drugstore products can be such a hit and miss for me, but lately I’ve been crazy about a few new and one not-so new product.
Garnier Gentle Clarifying Cleansing Gel– this cleanser is so impressive and it’s my current favorite. It’s delicate, fragrance-free and perfect for sensitive skin. I don’t really like removing my makeup with this, as I prefer pre-cleansing with oils, but it leaves my skin feeling so good and thoroughly cleansed. It’s non-drying, but at the same time it helps to heal small breakouts. Garnier says that this cleanser minimizes small skin imperfections, and I do have to say that it helps with my redness as well and it does seem to soften my pores a bit.
Wet n Wild Color Icon Contour Palette in Dulce De Leche– this palette is great if, like me, you love a very natural contour. The formula is nice, but the light shade isn’t really a highlight. It does work nicely as a concealer setting powder though.
Elf Illuminating Palette– I don’t use a whole lot of Elf products and I kind of picked up this palette on a whim. Turns out, I actually really like it. I wouldn’t really think of this as a highlighting palette- these powders are not very shimmery, but sort of really softening/smoothing. They really remind me of Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders; they also work nicely as a very, very subtle highlight.
Wet n Wild Color Icon Contour Palette in Dulce De Leche, Elf Illuminating palette and Maybelline Color Tattoo Crayons in Bronze Truffle and Barely Beige.
Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayons in Bronze Truffle and Barely Beige– these are so creamy, so smooth and so, so pigmented! They are actually pretty long-lasting too. I love that they just glide on and are very easy to use, I have a feeling that these will not dry out as easily as my Color Tattoo pigments.
Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer with Refreshing Coconut Oil– I know that I already mentioned this in-shower moisturizer a few times here on the blog, but I just can’t get enough. This is probably my 4th bottle now and it’s the best in-shower moisturizer I’ve tried. It actually does the job, it’s not greasy and leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth. Unlike the one from Nivea, it doesn’t have to be rinsed. Not to mention the gorgeous coconut scent!
