..........My Favorite Face Cleansers.........

I am very picky about skin care products and cleansers that really work for my combination skin type. I am oily on my T-Zone and dry on my cheeks and mouth area. I decided to post some of my favorite skin care cleansers and for what type of skin I believe they would work for.

Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser

This one you can find in two different formulas, foaming and creamy formula. The one I have is  the Foaming one. This one for me will be perfect for all skin types and everyday use since it is light and gentle with my skin but it does a great job removing the oil from my problematic areas but without leaving my skin feeling dry. After using it my skin looks clean and feels smooth and balanced. It has a mild soap fragance but it does not bother me at all. I bought mine at Costco and they came in a package of two full sizes plus travel samples that I always bring with me when I am traveling. 

Juice Beauty Green Apple Cleansing Gel

This is an organic gel cleanser rich in antioxidants like lemon, apple and sugar cane. It has a strong lemon scent but I really like it at morning time because it really wakes me up with that fresh scent. I would say this is my favorite cleanser for summer time when my skin is more oily than normal. I feel it cleans every pore on my face, lol, and I noticed that when I'm using it for long periods of time my pores really look smaller. After using it my skin feels very fresh and clean but if you have dry skin I recommend you to try a sample first just because it does dry my face a little but nothing major. It claims to be a brightening product but what I really noticed is that it improves the appearance of my pores. I bought mine online.

 Mia Mariu Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser

This is a thick gel consistency cleanser, so a little goes a long way. The first time I tried this product it was sent to me but I love it so much that I buy it after I run out of it. This face cleanser is formulated with essential oils to revitalize the appearance of my skin. It has a silky formula which leaves my skin soft and very clean at the same time, and hydrated without drying it out. Removes tough dirt, makeup, and impurities. It is made with natural ingredients like Sea kelp and aloe. It is a super gentle cleanser for sensitive skin. I would say this will work for all skin types.

Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Cream Cleanser

Like the name says it is a cream and very rich cleanser that has a wonderful sweet/mint scent to it that I totally love. It is made with natural ingredients which is great. This is my favorite cleanser for winter, fall season, or just when I feel I'm over-cleaning my skin and I need that extra moisture. This one would be the perfect cleanser if you have dry/sensitive skin. It does a great job removing the dirt but leaves my skin with that moisturized feeling and sometimes I don't need to use a moisturizer after using it. Another thing that I truly enjoy of these products is the cool-mint sensation I feel when I am washing my face with it.

Nu Skin Ageloc Gentle Cleanse & Tone 

This is a foam cleanser, is unscented,  and I have to say this is the gentlest cleanser of all. It will be perfect for sensitive and dry skin types. I bought one for my cousin that suffers from rosacea and she totally loves it because it does not irritate her skin at all. It is very light and great for everyday use. Even if I use it twice a day it doesn't dry out my skin. My skin feels clean but with a neutral sensation. 

What cleanser is your favorite? Thank you so much for reading  ^_^

..............Vera Mona Color Switch.............


Vera Mona's inception was spurred by Letty Calvo's need to address a common problem  shared by people across the globe, how to conveniently clean brushes in between the application of different eyeshadow colors. An idea turned into a prototype, and that prototype burst onto the scene as a must have product in any makeup bag. Now people around the world have the ease of "True Color in a Switch".


This is a sponge makeup tool that allows me to clean my brushes between applications, in just seconds. Yes! You don't need to switch for several different brushes during application anymore, you can just use one eyeshadow brush and use as many colors as you want. Just swipe your brush against the sponge to completely remove eye shadow color and switch to the next color without any transfer. The soft sponge is also very gentle with my brushes which is another plus. This is going to be your best friend when traveling because you can bring this and just one or two brushes and you are ready to go. They also are perfect for makeup artists, it is a professional looking tool, and it will save you lots of time. This sponge can be used on both sides and can be washed for reuse or replaced with a refill pack. 


This is almost the same as the Color Switch Solo, the only difference is this one has a second white sponge in the middle that you can soak with water for a wet eyeshadow application. I soak mine with my Mac prime Fix to foil my eyeshadows and it worked beautifully. I totally love these makeup tools especially when I am in a hurry or when I am doing some else's makeup. I can see that they save me lots of time and the great quality that they have. I use mine several times a week and they still look good as new. I not only use these sponges for my eyeshadows, I found out that they work excellent for my foundation, blush, and highlighter brushes as well. This was a brilliant idea and a must have beauty tool for me.
