Over the last couple of weeks, I've picked up an item here or there and I thought I would share them with you and tell you a little about each product.
From left to right, Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist, Equate Gentle Skin Cleanser and in the front we have Almay Get Up & Grow Waterproof Mascara in Black.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion: Since I've started the acne.org Regimen, my skin has been excessively dry, peeling, and overall disgusting. My skin has never been so dry in my life. Dan Kern of acne.org recommends this product as a good moisturizer for acne prone skin. I've been using it for about a week now and I can tell you for sure that this product works. I immediately noticed a huge difference in the appearance of the dry spots on my face and the itching went away as well. Within two days almost all of the dry patches were completely gone. I'm not sure if this product will break me out because a few days after using it, I did develop several pimples but I haven't used it long enough to tell if it was from the lotion or not but I also know that pimples usually develop two to three weeks before they noticeably appear on the surface of the skin. In other words, it was probably a coincidence but I may review this product in the future so more research is needed. I like that you get a lot for your money and it is gentle enough to use on the face or all over the body.
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner: This is a tried and true product that I have repurchased many times over the last ten or more years. I'm almost out of my current bottle and needed a replacement. Smells like coconuts!
Equate Gentle Skin Cleanser: This is another product recommended by acne.org. Well acutally, the Cetaphil equivalent is recommended but this was a lot cheaper from Walmart. This can be used to wash your face or even your body. It feels very gentle on the skin but has a texture similar to runny snot (yuck) so it may not be for everyone. So far, I really like it and feel that it gets my skin clean without irritating it like some more harsh face washes do.
Almay Get Up & Grow Waterproof Mascara: When I started my Project 10 Pan/5 Bottle, I had two waterproof mascaras and two washable mascaras. I did not think I would use them all up before I finished the project but I'm pretty sure the two I have left (Cover Girl Lash Blast Waterproof and Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express Washable) are both pretty much completely empty. I think they'll only last me a few more days, at best. So I purchased this mascara to replace the waterproof. I have a back up washable mascara that I haven't opened yet but no other waterproof. Almay is a cruelty-free company and I think I'll like the brush on this mascara so I'm looking forward to trying it out.
