Burt’s Bees Cleansing Towelettes Review

Standard

I religiously use cleansing towelette to remove my makeup. They not only remove makeup but the texture of the towelette helps clean the skin better. It contains make up remover or other cleansing ingredients that can be a big factor in the health of your skin. I got these Burt’s Bees all natural cleansing towelette in the fall Target Beauty box. I finally used these and here’s the review.

Ingredients:

This claims to be 99.1% natural

BBCT2

My Experience with using these:

When you first see them, you will notice that they are plain and doesn’t have any texture to them. But they are exfoliating enough to clean the skin. I use them on both sides. It has a strong scent to it. It’s a pleasant fragrance, nothing chemical like. I don’t use any makeup towelette on their own. I massage eye makeup removing cream and then wipe it off with a towelette. I do each eye one by one. Then I massage cleansing oil into my skin and then wipe it off with the towelette. Then I take a clean towelette and wipe my face and this time lips, clean. I noticed that this towelette does leave a slight oily residue. I definitely need to wash my face with a foaming face wash although it claims that it removes dirt, oil and makeup without rinsing. As I am wiping my face with these, I notice that there is a slight tingling and slightly burning sensation on my skin. But this didn’t break me out although it caused slight irritation and redness for a short while. Also, the packaging is great. It’s the ones where there is a sticky part that you lift up to take the wipe. It keeps the packet air tight when you shut them.

Eucerin Hand Cream Review

Standard

I use a lot of hand creams and I use it all year round and use a lot more during the winters. I picked up this eucerin hand cream at my local dollar tree. When I saw it at dollar tree, I picked it up without a thought because I have used Eucerin and I love the brand Eucerin.

Price: $1

Quantity: 2.7 oz/ 78 gms

Product Claims: Nourishing glycerin fortified daily crème with a balancing pH buffer strengthens skin’s protective barrier and moisturizes as it defends

Ingredients:

My experience with the hand cream:

This product is marked 2 on a scale of lightweight to rich. If you are familiar to this brand, you would know that Eucerin has this mark on all its products. So this is towards lightweight. The consistency of the product is perfect. You just need to apply a dime size and rub it in between your palms. For a hand cream, I prefer a product that is not too greasy and keeps my hand well moisturized. With this product, I have noticed that my hands are instantly moisturized without making it greasy. I can go back to writing immediately after I have applied it during a class. It smells a little mint like. The fragrance in this is very subtle, it’s gone after you have applied the product. I totally like this product. I would carry this everywhere and it has a sturdy packaging with a flip top cap.

Cloverine Salve Review

Standard

Vaseline is undoubtedly the most useful and the most used items in our beauty kit. I have seen Vaseline for so many years. I have used Vaseline in all sizes – the huge tubs to the small ones as well. However, off late I am kind of bored with Vaseline and have been experimenting with different brands and products. I was recently shopping on drugstore.com and came across this product ‘Cloverine salve’. I instantly bought it. I have used the Smith Rosebud salve and the C.O.Bigelow salve and was tempted to try this one too. Read below to see if this product can be replaced Vaseline or not.

Claims: No fancy claims.

My thoughts on the product:

This brand and the product have been around since 1860 but this is the first time I have actually come across this salve. This is a clear balm, packed in this beautiful and pretty white tin with mild to no scent. The mild scent is very fresh which I thought was like fennel seeds. The fact that this salve is clear makes me feel I am going to use it in many different ways. The Smith and CO Bigelow salve are tinted ones and I end up using it only on my lips.

The word ‘salve’ already makes me think this is going to be a very lightweight balm. And Cloverine salve is exactly what I thought. I first applied Cloverine on my lips and it gives a luxurious feeling to my lips. I simply fell in love with the product. Also this product doesn’t have a tingling sensation that I find quiet annoying. What I liked most about this product is its balm like texture. This doesn’t feel oily like the Vaseline. I applied it on the back of my hand and it didn’t leave an oily or a sticky feeling. Your skin instantly soaks it. I think it’s a great product to carry in your handbag. It’s a sleek and pretty tin. However, I feel the lid of the tin is very loose and it may just open in my handbag and create a mess. This is the only complain I have with the product. Also, the packaging and fragrance is very unisex. So anyone can have this product. I think this is a great product to have in your bag. I am that I bought this as I was completely bored of using my Vaseline.

Likes:

  1. The consistency and the texture of the salve
  2. Pretty tin packaging
  3. No fragrance
  4. Clear balm
  5. Available in many drugstores
  6. Anyone can use it

Dislikes:s

  1. The lid of the tin is loose

Will you repurchase? If I am able to finish this one, I will.
