Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System

Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System. It cleans my face very well but it does much more than simply cleaning it. This system also gently exfoliates my facial skin and prepares it for maximum hydration that my extremely dry skin craves.IMG_2014

KIT FEATURES
– Cleanses skin 6 times better to basic cleansing
– Helps maximize the immediate hydrating effectiveness of your anti-aging moisturizer
– Designed with 2-speed,rotating system delivers daily deep cleansing and gentle exfoliation, Water resistant, Replaceable soft bristle brush head
–  It includes sample size of the Pro-X Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser recommended for daily exfoliation

Those features are what my face needs and I am so glad this product provides them. It helps to remove the loose dead skin from my face with the soft bristle head of this product, I apply my moisturizer and my face feels almost new again. It’s clean, soft, smooth, bright, and it feels healthy. I had so hoped that this system would work as well as it does but was afraid it wouldn’t be able to deliver what it claimed. My fears were unfounded because, in my opinion, it works perfectly.

DIRECTIONS TO USE

The directions to use Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System daily, but I only use it once every two or three days. I am a ‘beauty product junkie’ and use other facial cleansers on the days I don’t use this system. I don’t use it to remove my makeup, either. It is a gentle exfoliation system, but I don’t want to take the chance of irritating my skin, so I feel more comfortable deep cleaning my face and exfoliating it less often than the directions suggest. It may work better for you to use it daily, but for me, three times a week is all it takes. That’s what I feel is best for my skin type. You can decide what’s best for your skin type after you have felt the way the brush feels on your facial skin and how your face feels after you have cleaned it with this product and moisturize it with your favorite moisturizer.

The cleanser that comes in the kit doesn’t dry out my facial skin, but it does get it squeaky clean. The brush has two speeds and it’s very gentle but still removes dead, dry skin and makes my face look and feel younger and brighter.

Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System gently gives my face a deep down clean, it gets rid of old dry skin, and it prepares my face for the hydration it so desperately needs. Those facts add up to make this a 5 star product, and I very highly recommend it!

PRICE- $25 ( I purchased from Amazon)

ELF Small Tapered Brush

Details:

The tapered head of the Small Tapered Brush makes application easy for reaching small crevices for a flawless finish. This precision brush is perfect for contouring and creating even coverage. Use with powder to set under the eye, on the hollows of the cheek to contour with bronzer, or use with foundation to achieve a flawless finish.IMG_2013

My Verdict:

The slight point at the tip of the bristles allow for very precise color application, and then it gets wider and fuller so you can blend it all out. It’s great for dark contouring and it’s also great for sweeping highlight along the cheekbones, and it can also be used for blush as well. Basically, if you plan on contouring your face at any time in the near future, this brush would be your best purchase. It is also great to set your under eye concealer.

Pros:
  • Easy to use
  • Soft Bristles

Yes, I recommend this product.

L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation

A good base for makeup is by finding right shade of foundation. After lot of researching I was lucky enough to find the right shade for my skin tone. This foundation comes in 9 different shades. I swatched more of medium shades and it got more of yellow undertones which is suitable of asian olive toned skin.

Packaging:

It’s a compact, convenient, plastic squeeze tube which is great. I have complete control over how much foundation I want to use. The only drawback I found with the packaging is the front panel where the shade (supposedly) shows — as I looked at all the shades on the L’oreal display, I couldn’t really tell a difference between the different shades just by looking at the front panel — they all looked very similar. So if you’re lucky enough to get some testers, use them to get a sense of color because just by looking at the front panel, you won’t get an accurate indication of what you might go home with.

I am in the shade 107 Fresh Beige.A pea-size amount gives me the right amount of medium coverage. A little goes a long way with this product. I blend it in with my buffing brush and I’m left with a demi-matte finish that evens out my skin tone. Does not feel heavy whatsoever which is amazing for a foundation that actually gives a good amount of coverage without too much product. I’ve tried using more to build up the coverage and yes, you can get fuller coverage, but you might risk the start of looking a bit cakey.

I’ve tried this with my L’oreal base magique primer and I find they work wonderfully together to give me a bit of a more luminous finish.

This definitely one of my favorite medium to fuller coverage foundation and it is amazing drugstore foundation I came across. I would most likely  repurchase this product.

5 Easy Tips for Smudge Proof Makeup

#Primer

Prepare your skin before applying make-up by applying a Primer. Whether you wear a full face of makeup everyday or you prefer to keep it simple with BB cream and tinted lip balm, Primer is a must.

#Eyes

Before applying eyeliner to your bottom lashes, dust a brush over some baby powder and apply it on the lower lash line which will soak the extra moisture from the area, making it easier for the eyeliner to stay in place for longer. Also, avoid putting eye cream directly on your lids and apply primer specifically made for your eyes.

#Lips

Try to get rid of extra skin from your lips with the help of sugar scrub. Apply foundation to your lips to make your lipstick last longer. Line and fill the lip with neutral lip pencil. Apply one coat of lipstick and then blot. Apply some powder and another lipstick coat.

#Blush

Use powdered blush-on in natural earthy shades or apply the blush on in a dotted format on your cheeks and rub it gently with your ring finger. They are also known as flushed cheeks. For blush-on, you can use colours like ruby, strawberry, corals and pinks.

#Facial Mists

Fixtures are generally used to give your make-up a refreshed look. It is basically a misty spray which is sprayed on the face. After spraying it let it settle for approximately six to seven seconds. Get ready with a fresh face on a hot and sweaty day.
