I picked up Caramance facial moisturizer at Ulta. It was only $2 on clearance. I read a model's autobiography years ago and she recommended using a facial moisturizer like this, especially when traveling. The model said flying can dry out your skin and a light water mist can make all the difference. So I thought why not give it a whirl? Especially at clearance prices.
And I have to say, it was kind of awesome! It's basically just a light water mist over your face. It feels very luxurious. And supposedly it doesn't mess up your make-up... it doesn't do much damage... but I certainly wouldn't use it right before a photo session. It does give you a really youthful, dewy, glowing look... so if that's something you are going for, definitely give it a try! And it's just kind of fun. And who doesn't want a little fun in their day and to feel a bit like a super model!
I also forced the product on my friend and fellow blogger Sarah. She wasn't so sure, but afterwards she did agree...

Neutrogena's the anti-residue shampoo
I headed to the aisles of my local super store in search of a clarifying shampoo. I don't know exactly what has gotten into my hair, but it has some build-up that just won't go away. Gross! I know there is probably something where it's because I wash my hair everyday and that's really bad for it and if I just stopped shampooing completely it would be perfect or something... BUT that's not happening. I like my hair to be clean.
I tend to be very partial toward Neutrogena products so I was so happy when I found this shampoo that seemed to be exactly what I needed. "Instantly removes over 90% of dulling residue." And I would say that's pretty spot on. I washed my hair with this shampoo twice (this is normal for me) and it definitely got rid of a A LOT of the build up in my hair. Did it get rid of everything? No. But did it get rid of about 90%, I would say yes.
I didn't read the fine print on the shampoo before I purchased, but it does have specific instructions to use once a week to make your favorite shampoo work better. I'm guessing it's probably to harsh or would strip you hair to use it more than once a week, but I'm crossing my fingers--this seems like it going to help out a lot. I think I still need to find this "favorite shampoo" they refer to, but at least I can get rid of some of that build-up! I'll let you know about a couple weeks of use how it's going with the anti-residue shampoo.
I hope you enjoyed my 2 little product reviews! Have a wonderful weekend honeybees.
