Philosophy Hope in a Jar

I was not impressed with this product. I bought someone really nice skincare products on a regular basis, I was very disappointed with Hope in a Jar. I will be returning this product because it is no good for me! It smells exactly like the fragrance in a brand of hair dye I used to use a decade ago. The smell is so strong, and it never seems to fade, in fact I had to wash my face twice to rid myself of the odor after several hours of wearing it.The consistency is watery, but it didn't help my skin absorb it any better. A light moisturizer should be hydrating and absorb into the skin readily. this product does neither. It did nothing for my skin but irritate it a bit (probably due to a combination of its exfoliating lactic acid and its overwhelming amount of fragrance) and it felt like a film on my skin.When I washed my face and put on my regular moisturizer my skin immediately looked and felt SO much better! It was like my skin was as relieved to be rid of Hope In a Jar as much as my nostrils were relieved to be rid of the fragrance. I'd recommend Aveda hydrating lotion if you are into botannical aromas, it is so much better for your skin and smells infinitely more appealing than this Hope In a Jar!.

Olay Fresh Effects Va-Va-Vivid Powered Countour Cleansing System 1 Kit

I purchased this little device Kit  just looking to try something new. Instantly I noticed a difference in my skin after using it for the first time. This is a  vibrating tool with soft tiny plastic fingered brush. The triangular shape of the contour brush is better suited for my oily T-zone and nose. This is  perfect for getting deep into all the creases and edges of my face and because it is bristles are rubber it is easy to keep clean. I use this every night my skin has felt like it has just received a  expert micro-facial. With The little massaging fingers help my serum and moisturizer penetrate deeply and my skin feel wonderful, very soft and clean .I have being using this kit for three weeks now and My skin has cleared up a lot now.  
The Cleanser Olay Shine, Shine Go Away! Shine Minimizing Cleanser leaves my skin feeling really clean and fresh while removing all my makeup without parching my skin, rinses easily and is much better than the last shine reducing cleanser I used. When I finished, I moisturize and continue with my beauty routing. This Olay Kit works great for me and is way less money.

1 Olay Powered Contour Cleansing System AAA Bactery.

Michael Todd Avocado and Mango Hydrating Facial Mask

This is my favorite facial mask so far! First, the packaging is great. It's so hygienic it comes out very easily. However, since I am almost finished with this product (and needs to buy another one soon!). When I first squeezed it out onto my finger I was pleasantly surprised. It felt cool and not slimy, but kind of firm. Which is a plus! There is a scent and I love it . It has a great yummy fruit smell. It wasn't too strong or anything. Then I started smearing it on my face. It felt SOOO good. It felt how this mask really moisturizer my skin in a second, this is great for sensitive and mature skin type. It was really easy to spread and soon my face was covered. I left it on for about 10-15 minutes and it wasn't dry this feel's like a lotion extra moisturizer. Keep in mind I put a lot on so a thinner layer would probably take only 15 minutes to dry a little bit. I washed it off with warm water, such a great feeling. I did end up getting water all over the place though. most of it came right off when I washed my face but I had to go back and wash some excess clay left on my forehead. I use this twice a week to refresh, reduce my unclog pores, bacteria, nourish and moisturize my skin. It really works! I instantly saw results. This is an AMAZING product . It is  pricey but I can't find nothing that feel and work so nice with my skin like this products is truly awesome.

SHISEIDO Purifying Cleasing Foam

*Removes makeup very well
*Does not have and harsh beads that feels like it scratching your skin off
*Leaves skin feeling very clean

*Does leave skin feeling dry

I did like this cleanser, but I do think that normal cleanser can do the same job and for less of the cost. I usually only get expensive skincare during the Christmas season and Mother's Day, only because they are usually half the cost, and they have gift sets which come with everything for you to try, soo you dont need to spend a lot to buy them seperately. 
I do find this cleanser to dry my face out, it removes makeup very well for some odd reason, I dont think that this cleanser should be use everyday, cause it does seem a bit harsh.Would I buy it again? When Christmas come around, yes
