Happy Friday!

I would like to take today to shine some light on a few Unsung Heroes of my make-up world.

Hero #1

Clean and Clear's Finishes Pore Perfecting Cleanser~ $6.99 at Walgreen's

What it claims:
- Cleans deep down to the pores. Keeps pores clear of dirt and oil.
- Oil-free
- Won't clog pores

Why I like it:
I just noticed when I was using this in the shower that it was about 2/3 gone! Poor cleanser-- hasn't had a review for it yet. =( It's not anything life-changing, but my skin really does feel so clean after I use it. And it's kind of shimmery in the bottle so it's a pretty part of my regimen =) I'm also really digging having a face wash with a pump. Whoo!

Hero #2

Neutrogena's Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes-- $7.99 at Walgreen's

What they claim:
- Gentle, ultra soft cloths offer you superior cleansing and make-up removal.
  • Gently and effectively dissolve all traces of dirt, oil and make-up.
  • Patent pending technology is so effective it easily removes waterproof mascara.
  • Leaves skin thoroughly clean with no heavy residue, so there's no need to rinse.
  • Use daily for clean, fresh, make-up free skin in 1 easy step.
  • Gentle enough to use around sensitive eye areas, even for contact lens wearers.
  • Ophthalmologist tested
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Allergy tested
  • Alcohol free
Why I like them:
OMG these are a lifesaver!! I leave these next to my bed for when I just want to go to sleep without getting up and washing my face. They are super effective-- they even wipe off my "tube" mascara! They are sliiiightly irritating to the eyes, but not even to keep you up at night. They also leave a slight residue, but I actually like it! It's moisturizing, so I don't have to get up and put on any moisturizer to make my skin comfortable. These towelettes are truly remarkable~ I wholeheartedly approve!!

Hero #3

Pantene Pro-V's new Hair Solutions Flat to Volume for Fine Hair~ all at Walgreen's
- Hair Style Spray Gel $4.49
- Triple Action Volume Mousse $4.49
- Shampoo $4.49
- Conditioner $4.49

What it claims:

  • Your hair's starting point: Fine
    Fine hair has less structural volume than thick hair. So your hair may need special reinforcement to keep it from falling flat.
  • Pantene Pro-V innovation:
    Unique volumizing system* with micro-boosters prep fine hair's structure so you can create your volume style. Now your flat hair looks full again with weightless body and shine.
  • Lightweight system boosts hair for all day volume*
Why I like it:
I LOVE THIS LINE!! The shampoo is fantastic-- cleans without drying-- and the conditioner is divine! It hydrates without weighing down my hair or making it oily. It is simply amazing! I will forever use this conditioner. Pinkie promise =) And the gel and mousse hold curl in my straight hair when I used a curling iron and it was very touchable and soft. I don't know how well it would work on longer hair~ mine stays pretty well volumized because it's short~ but I really do feel like this line helps, and the shampoo and conditioner would be highly beneficial to any gal with fine hair!

So hopefully now my beloved products are feeling appreciated!! =)

Do you have any products that you absolutely adore? I'd love to hear!!

Until Next Time~

  1. I suck at taking my makeup off at night, so I might try those towelettes! I always promise myself I will, but then I pass out on my bed somehow!
