BURTโ€™S BEES - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream I have dry hands and fingers which often results in cracked skin around my nails. Love this product, the smell is amazing and I really like the texture as its not at all greasy. It's more like a waxy balm which forms a kind of barrier over your cuticles/nails. I loved the consistency and it made my cuticles feel so soft and fresh. I've only been using it for four days but I've noticed an improvement in my cuticles and nails already, the skin is much less dry and my nails feel stronger.  After multiple uses, I could tell my cuticles and the skin around my nails was softer feeling and looking.  I tend to use this a lot when I have acrylics as it improves the health of my nails as well. This is by far my favorite cream for cuticles. You only need a little bit and for the price you pay, its definitely worth it. One little can of these last me months! I would highly recommend this product and would definitely continue buying it.

Wetbrush VS. Tangle Teezer, both $14, Guess Which Wins!๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿฆฐ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿฆณ๐Ÿ‘ฉ
My husband doesn't like TANGLE TEEZER - Compact Styler Detangling Hair Brush. He thinks it feels uncomfortable in his hands. So I bought tWet brush - Teal Swirl Detangler. After using it for a couple of days, I am in love! I gonna compare the 2 drugstore brushes in this review. I have long, thick, wavy hair that tangles easily. The Wet Brush is amazing, and you can even call it "magical."๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ As it claims, you can use it for both dry and wet hair. It can detangle my matted hair without causing pain. It doesn't cause harm to the hair as well. I can brush my hair thoroughly.  The design of the Wet Brush is counterintuitive. Its bristles are softer and more flexible than bristles on standard brushes. The Wet Brush makes quick work of even the biggest knots and really does detangle my hair โ€“ wet or dry โ€“ quickly and painlessly. But thereโ€™s a downside๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข: after several months of use, those magical bristles began to fall out, until the brush simply wasnโ€™t effective anymore. As for Tangle Teezer, which seems to be the Wet Brushโ€™s main competitor,  it's a completely different shape than the Wet Brush. It has no handle but is formed to fit comfortably in your hand. The bristles are stiffer than the Wet Brush bristles, and they donโ€™t have the same ball tip. They also alternate between long and short bristles. In my case, TT brush isn't good for wet hair like Wet brush as the latter has a harder comb.  It simply does not get through the knots and tangles, certainly not any better than a regular brush. Also, I don't like the way the brush felt in our hand and I much prefer having a handle. So in terms of detangling ability, the Wet Brush wins. But durability is an issue, if you plan to buy a Wet Brush, know that you may need to replace it sooner than you would like.  No brush is perfect for everyone. Tangle Teezer might be ideal for other kinds of hair. For us, the Wet Brush is still the best option, but I will be keeping my eyes open for an equally effective but longer-lasting substitute. Do you have any favorite detangling products or tricks? Let us know in the comments!๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡

These High-Rating Products Are Not The Best For Combo Oily Skin..๐Ÿ˜ง๐Ÿ˜ง
These High-Rating Products Are Not The Best For Combo Oily Skin..๐Ÿ˜ง๐Ÿ˜ง
I have combination-oily most of the year, normal skin sometimes, and combination-dry skin in winter. I have acne marks but I don't have sensitive skin. The following are some of the products that I've almost used up. But I don't think they are good for combo-oily skin. 1) Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Dream Night Cream It's too sticky and doesn't absorb at all. I really don't like how it feels on my skin. Besides moisturizing, it does nothing much at all. It neither offers any obvious anti-aging or restoration effects, nor does it minimize pores. I think it's only suitable for those with very dry skin. 2) SHISEIDO - Waso Quick Matte Moisturizer Oil-Free It's absorbed slowly by the skin and easily leaves the skin shiny. Although it's oil-free, it still leaves my skin greasy for 15 minutes after being applied. I can't apply foundation right away after using this moisturizer. I suppose it's OK if you're not planning on going out during the day. It's also US$45/75ml bottle which is quite expensive. 3) Too Faced - Hangover Primer It's a moisturizing primer but it's totally useless as it's quite unnecessary if your skin is hydrated and moisturized enough with your usual skincare. Besides, it balls up easily. 4) NARS - Sheer Glow Foundation - Shade Yukon It's not suitable for oily skin, or I should say that it's unsuitable for use in any hot weather. It helps your makeup look great, provides decent coverage, and feels great on the skin. It spreads easily, but it's not long-lasting and it peels after 3 to 4 hours. It also starts smudging within 2 hours in summer. I've previously used it together with Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Pressed Powder for better results.

A Beauty Advisor Recommended This Combination!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
A Beauty Advisor Recommended This Combination!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
Aesop - B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel plus Aesop - Lucent Facial Concentrate is a combination recommended to me by a beauty advisor, both of which focus on soothing, balancing and regulating skin. They're also suitable for oily skin. Many say that B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel helps in lightening acne marks and minimizing the appearance of pores, but I haven't noticed it yet. However, I can clearly feel that my skin has become less shiny since using it. It has a gluey, gel-like texture and it feels great to use in summer as it's cooling and refreshing. However, it doesn't spread easily and feels like an impermeable glue-like layer that leads to congested skin. So, I'm really torn on whether it's a good product or a bad one. I heard that SHISEIDO - White Lucent Illuminating Micro-Spot Serum repairs damaged skin, but I have also failed to notice any effects. However, it has a refreshing texture and it's very moisturizing. The beauty advisor also recommended a method whereby you mix a few drops of the Lucent serum together with the Aesop - Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Masque to increase the moisturizing effect.

๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑMy blackheads and acnes disappeared in just two weeks, thanks to...
Recently I found three products that really suit combo-oily skin with acnes and blackheads. pixi - Glow Tonic I recommend this as an entry level acid for non-sensitive, dry, oily and combination-oily skin, and I recommend using it at night. It has a lightweight and watery texture, and if you use it every night by gently wiping it across the skin with cotton pads one to two times, you'll see your blackheads and acnes disappear in just two weeks. I always keep an extra bottle of this toner with me. It contains 5% glycolic acid, ginseng, aloe vera extract and other ingredients which help to reduce blackheads, acne, and other skin problems as well as resurface the skin, leaving you with smooth skin. After using acids, try to use a moisturizing and hydrating serum or facial cream because the skin becomes dry after using acids. KORRES - Hydra Biome Probiotic Superdose Face Mask With Real Greek Yoghurt It has a yogurt texture with a pleasant milky scent. I normally apply a thick layer of it after using the Pixi Glow Tonic, then wipe it off with a wet cotton tissue after 10 minutes. It leaves you with instantly hydrated skin. It contains Greek yogurt, probiotics and other ingredients which hydrate by releasing a boost of moisture over 48 hours, restore and improve the skin barrier, soothe skin, and balance the skin's pH. KORRES - Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Probiotic Gel-Cream This is a yogurt texture facial cream which focuses on moisturizing, hydrating, restoration, stabilizing, and anti-inflammation. It's oily, combination-oily and sensitive skin friendly, and I find that it's easily absorbed, refreshing, and moisturizing. With combination-oily skin, I'm really glad that I found another affordable facial cream besides Sisley Paris Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream. What do you think of either product? Tell me below!
