Curél: Body Wash and Moisturizing Spray Review

Hello everyone!

I received two products from Influenster that were free, to test and share what I thought about them. They are both products from the brand Curél. I had never heard of this brand before, so I was really intrigued. From what I understand, their specialty is a variety of lotions. They’re a dermatologist recommended brand and many of their products are approved by the National Eczema Association.

First, let’s start off with their Itch Defense Body Wash. It says that it’s a “calming cleanser for dry, itchy skin. Clinically proven to stop the itch before it starts”. On the back it says, “this soap-free formula is a unique blend of gentle cleansers and skin conditioners that creates a rich lather to gently cleanse and soothe itchy skin”. I was really impressed by this! My arms and back are usually very dry and my arms are always rough because I’m usually to lazy to moisturize. After I used this in the shower and dried off, my arms were very soft and smooth. That was surprising to me because they’re usually very dry, right after the shower. I love that it hydrates while you’re in the shower. The two ingrediants that seem to make this possible are jojoba and olive oils, which are in various moisturizing products. I also really like that it smells normal, like how you expect an unscented lotion to smell. My other shower products are heavily scented and sometimes give me a headache, so this was a nice change.

The only downside to the body wash, is that it doesn’t lather well for me. No matter how much I put, I couldn’t build it up. So I just used my regular soap, then tried my best to scrub this after and it worked really well. Other than that, I have no complaints.

The second product they sent me, is the Itch Defense Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray. The front of this says, “clinically proven to instantly relieve dry, itchy sky with cooling hydration”. The description on the back talks about it’s Advanced Ceramide Therapy, “Ceramides are naturally found in skin’s vulnerable outer layer and help skin retain moisture. When skin’s ceramide levels are low, skin has difficulty retaining moisture.” It goes on to say the Curél moisturizers replenish skin’s ceramide levels. My favorite thing about this is that it’s a spray nozzle! I hate regular lotions where you have to put them on your hands and then your hands get all sticky. You have to press a little harder than usual on the nozzle, but other than that, it works great. I like the cooling feeling of the spray, it provides a nice cooling sensation. It also doesn’t have any added fragrance. Compared to the body wash, this has more of a lingering “lotion” scent, though. It doesn’t bother me, but if you’re sensitive to that maybe try a sample.

I do like how well it moisturizes my skin, but it doesn’t last long for me. After about two hours or so, I need to apply more. I’m not sure if it’s because my skin is too dry or what, but it’s not long-lasting.

Overall, I was really happy to be able to try out these two products. I really like learning about the company and the fact that they have and are continuing to make products that help people with skin problems, such as eczema. It can make their days much easier, having something to alleviate the dryness/itchiness. I love the body wash and will definetely be purchasing that, but the moisturizing spray isn’t my cup of tea.

Let me know what you guys think and if you’ve tried this brand out before!

Beauteque Mini-Haul

Happy Friday everyone!

Today, I’m so excited! My package from Beauteque came and I wanted to share it with you guys! For those of you who don’t know, Beauteque is a company that sells makeup and skincare items. The majority of them are Asian products, most of the ones I received are from Korea. Let’s face it guys, Korean products are probably the best. Have you seen their flawless, plump, skin?

I’ve been having some trouble with dark spots lately, and I know that treating them early is vital to getting rid of them. So, I browsed through Beauteque and found some products I thought would help.

First off, is the Cosrx Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Cleanser, which costs $12.00.

It’s supposed to reduce breakouts and promote clearer skin. According to its description, it cleans thoroughly, pores and all.

Next, is the Benton Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel, which cost $16.00.

I bought this one because I wanted a moisturizer that would really help my skin, not just moisturize it. It not only moisturizes, but is supposed to prevent bacteria, stopping acne.

The one I’m most excited about is the Annie’s Way Arbutin + Hyaluronic Acid Brightening Jelly Mask, which was $19.50.

It’s so beautiful guys! It even comes with a spatula! I’ve been obsessed with this mask, because I’ve seen it a lot on Bubzbeauty’s youtube channel. When I saw it, I just had to get it. I’m hoping that this will help out a lot with my hyper-pigmentation. I’ll definitely let you guys know if it works!

Beauteque also sent me four skincare sample products, with my order.

Banana Hand Milk

Cosrx

Aloe BHA: Skin Toner

Overall guys, I’m so happy with my purchase! I also love their shipping time. I ordered this Monday and received it Friday, which is pretty good. I didn’t even pay for shipping because my order was over $50.00. Let me know down below if you’ve tried any of these products!

Thanks so much for reading!

Review on Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream

Hello there beautiful people!
Today I wanted to share a product that has helped my skin for months. I’ve been using it for about half a year and absolutely love it! The Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream has become an important part of my skin care routine, both day and night! Its reminds me a lot of the Clinique Moisture Surge moisturizer, but it won’t make you feel guilty after buying it. It’s extremely affordable, only $6. 40 at Target.

It comes in a small jar, which has 1.7 oz. One usually lasts me about two months, but remember, I use it every morning and night. In the morning, I always put it on after I get out the shower. It keeps the moisture in and makes my skin nice and smooth, so that I can apply my makeup without it looking cakey. I have oily skin and I’m usually nervous about moisturizers because many break me out. But this one doesn’t!

It looks aqua/light green and I think that the jar is adorable and if you’re traveling, easy to pack.  I love the texture it has so much! Its cool to your touch and isn’t sticky or anything. It just absorbs into your face and makes you feel extremely refreshed (hence the name)! At night, there are only two things I always put on my face. Vaseline and the Garnier  moisturizer. Since I’ve been using this, I noticed the look of my skin looks more full and bright, before it looked quite dull.

But if you are sensitive to smells, this does have a scent to it. It’s kind of like aloe vera, but it goes away after a couple minutes on your face.

Well that’s all, I hope you guys enjoyed! Let me know if you tried it!

Bye guys!
