Best Heated Eyelash Curler

Best Heated Eyelash Curler

I get asked this question a lot- what is the best heated eyelash curler?  To be honest I had never used an eyelash curler, let alone a heated eyelash curler!  My lashes have always had a natural curl to them, and I haven’t needed much else…or so I thought.  But as the good clean beauty blogger that I am I wanted to test out some of the best heated eyelash curlers to bring you all some options.  After all, a beauty blogger always has to be on the up and up!

I did some research trying to find the best heated eyelash curlers to test out.  I wanted to make sure they had some amazing reviews but also weren’t going to break the bank.  Plus, I wanted to try a few to give you some options.

These two heated eyelash curlers take the cake when it comes to performance!

I landed on two that I will share with you below.  These definitely were well loved when it came to reviews on Amazon!  Yes, I got them from Amazon.  

If you’re wondering why you would want to get a heated eyelash curler- allow me to explain.  

My Experience

A heated eyelash curler will take your lashes from subpar to next level in a matter of seconds.  It’s pretty impressive! I didn’t realize what I was missing.  I always thought my lashes were pretty decent.  As I mentioned above they have some natural curl to them and aren’t stick straight.  However, after using a heated eyelash curler I realized what I had been missing out on!  The heated eyelash curler straight delivers!  My lashes looked bigger, longer and more dramatic.  It was like an instant eye lift for my eye.  I was surprised how quick the whole process was.  I got two heated eyelash curlers from Amazon.  This one and this one.  I actually love them both equally and think you would be a fan of either that you used!  

Check out the heated eyelash curlers here and here!

Take your eyelashes to the next level with these heated eyelash curlers.

How To Use A Heated Eyelash Curler?

You want to first add a coat of mascara to your lashes.  Then set your heated eyelash curler to one of the settings.  They typically have 3 settings depending on the one you choose.  I would choose the hottest setting.  It only takes around 15 seconds to heat up. Once it’s heated up,  use the heated eyelash curler on your lashes.  I would then take the heated eyelash curler and press it for 5 to 10 seconds on the bottom of my lashes(base) then go up to from roots to top of lashes several times to  really help exaggerate the curl and lock it in.  Then I would apply the second coat of mascara.  The more you use it and play with it, the more you get the hang of how to use it!  It’s really so easy.  

Price?

The price of a heated eyelash curler is so small!  Yet, so worth it.  You can really change the whole look of your eyes using one.

Did I Burn Myself?

I did not burn myself.  I really think it would be hard to burn yourself.  It does get warm but not scalding hot.  I could see getting burned if you left the wand applicator on your eyelashes for too long but they tell you to only leave it there for 10 seconds or so.  Plus, the more you use it the easier it gets to get the hang of it.  As they say, practice makes perfect!

Is This For Me?

A heated eyelash curler is for you if you’ve dealt with straight lashes and have a hard time curling them.  This could be your new bestie!  Using a regular eyelash curler can curl lashes but not give the longevity or lasting hold and curl that a heated eyelash curler can give.  Heating the lashes really makes a difference when it comes to getting the curl to stay put.  Plus, if your lashes are straight, chances are they are a little more stubborn and harder to curl in general.  Having a heated eyelash curl is going to give you that extra bit of oomph to really take your curling power to the next level.

My Sister’s Experience

picture of side of face

This is my sister’s lashes before using the heated eyelash curler.

I had to have my sister test out the heated eyelash curler as well.  She has very straight lashes and always has to curl them if she wants any sort of lift.  I knew she would be a good person to test a heated eyelash curler out because she’s dealt with straight lashes her whole life. I bought her one of the heated eyelash curlers and had her test it out.  She was impressed with the overall lift of her lashes.  She could tell a difference when she used it, versus when she didn’t.  I even had her take a before and after photo so you could see the difference in her eyes.  It’s kind of amazing the before and after!  It really does give her lashes lift and volume. This is the heated eyelash curler she tested out.

This is the after picture of my sister’s eyelashes once she used the heated eyelash curler.

 

Would I Recommend A Heated Eyelash Curler?

I would definitely recommend a heated eyelash curler!  I think they can really give your lashes a boost and take them to the next level in a matter of seconds.  Plus, they are a really good deal for what you get and easy to find since both of the ones I tested were from Amazon.  If you’re wanting to give your natural lashes some curl and lift this is the best way.  Check out the heated eyelash curlers I tried here and here.  They both are so great- I don’t have a preference!

Skincare Fridge: Is It Worth It?

Skincare Fridge: Is It Worth It?

So excited to finally share my skincare fridge is it worth it post?  I’ve been testing out a skincare mini fridge now for several months and I’m hear to share all the details on this skincare phenomenon that has swept through the past several years.  

If you’ve never heard of a skincare fridge, allow me to introduce you to what I’m even talking about.  

Suzi(Gurl Gone Green) is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.

Mini fridges have been popping up recently all over for skincare products.  Essentially you put them in your bathroom and store skincare products in them.  I had heard about it a couple years ago but never really gave it much thought until I realized it was actually a thing!  Yes, there are literally companies that make just skincare fridges.  I knew I wanted to dive in a little deeper into it all and see for myself what all the fuss was about.  I mean what kind of natural beauty blogger would I be if I didn’t try out the latest and greatest?

mini skincare fridge on counter

My newest obsession- my skincare fridge!

So I bought one and have been using it for the past 4 months.  I wanted to give it a good amount of time to really see what I thought and if it was worth the hype or not.  I wanted to share my experience with you here in hopes that it will help you decide if you want to hitch your wagon to this new craze or not.

As I said earlier, a skincare fridge is essentially meant to house some of your skincare products and live in your bathroom.  A fridge in your bathroom?  Sounds kind of cool huh?  Yes, well it does have it’s perks.  

What Do You Store In A Skincare Fridge?

  • Eye creams are great because when they have a cooling effect they tend to help de-puff the eyes, great for in the morning when you want your eye area to look a little perked up.  
  • Aloe is a great skincare product that can benefit from a skincare fridge.  Sticking an aloe based product in the skincare fridge can help to enhance the product even more.  Since aloe has a naturally cooling effect it can help to give it an even more soothing cool to the touch feel.  
  • Vitamin C products can especially benefit from being stored in the fridge because Vitamin C is very sensitive to light and heat.  Sticking them in the fridge can help them not to oxidize as quickly.
  • Gel skincare products are great as well as they naturally are meant to feel cooling on the skin.
  • Skincare Tools.  These are great to add to the skincare fridge. The cold stone on your skin as you jade roll or use a Gua Sha on your skin feels incredibly soothing and reviving to the skin.  Especially great for in the mornings when you want your skin to feel awake and vibrant.
  • Facial Sheet Masks.  This feels so refreshing on the skin when they are a little cool on the skin.  Even eye gel masks are perfect for adding to the fridge.  Really helps to de-puff the eye area overall.

I love being able to get even more out of my skincare products with my skincare fridge.

A skincare fridge can help to preserve products.  Natural skincare products especially are great for keeping in a skincare fridge since many of them tend to have less harsh preservatives.  A skincare fridge helps to prolong the life of the skincare product and ward off bacteria.  We know that light and heat can degrade a product quickly so we know the opposite is true for helping preserve them. Refrigerating skincare products can also help calm skin inflammation with the cooling effect of the products and constrict pores so they appear smaller.  As you can see there are many benefits to having a skincare fridge.  

What Skincare Fridge Did I Get?

I researched and read so much on skincare fridges.  I really wanted to make sure I got a good one!  I also had some things I wanted to make sure I got with my skincare fridge and I didn’t want to spend over $50.  I saw some that I thought were really chic looking but they had horrible reviews or were over $100.  I was bummed because I thought initially I would get one of them but as I read the reviews I realized they weren’t going to be worth it if they stopped working and they were pretty pricey!  As I looked more and more the one that kept coming up and getting awesome reviews as far as longevity and price was Cooluli Mini Fridge(classic 4 liter small mini fridge).  It also had a side shelf on the door and a shelf in the large compartment- both musts for me when I was looking for a skincare fridge.  I’ve been super happy with the Cooluli Mini Fridge overall.  It’s not loud at all, it has the shelves and it has a pink exterior which always wins in my book!  It’s also big enough to store a good amount of skincare products but not too large where it takes up too much space in my bathroom.  The Cooluli Mini Fridge also comes in other colors too if pink isn’t your fave.

*I also wanted to point out that you can also use your skincare fridge for heating items too. Sometimes you want a product to be a little warm- so this would be perfect for that as well.

Check out the Cooluli Mini Fridge here!

So What Did I Think Of My Skincare Fridge?

I was so excited to start testing out my skincare fridge.  It sits right on my counter in my bathroom.  I don’t have a huge bathroom by any means so it does take up some space but I’m willing to make the sacrifice!  It doesn’t have a loud noise.  I don’t really notice it’s even on.  I stored my eye creams, eye masks, facial tools like my jade roller, and Gua Sha, and some of my aloe based masks.

I loved how the skincare fridge had a little shelf, plus a side shelf for eye masks or smaller skincare products.  I would get out my jade roller first thing in the morning and it would feel so cooling on my skin- I loved it!  I felt like it brought some blood flow to my skin compared to when I used it at room temperature.  I also loved applying my eye cream as it felt so cool to the touch and made my eyes feel very awake.  I also was so impressed with how cooling the aloe felt on my skin after being refrigerated!  It really took it to the next level.  Both my husband and I had burned our skin and I applied the aloe right away and it instantly took away the burn.  I was so impressed!  So was my hubs.  There was no burning sensation at all after applying the cooling aloe.  I also loved how my gel masks felt on my skin afterwards.  It felt so refreshing.  It definitely took some of my skincare products to the next level!

The real question now is a skincare fridge worth taking up extra space in your bathroom?  Well, that’s for you to decide, but I will share my experience with you and what I think.

Mini skincare fridge on counter

I love being able to have my skincare tools cooled for my skin.

Is it worth taking up the extra space?

For me it is worth it!  I think the added benefit of having a skincare fridge really helps me look forward to using my skincare products even more.  It’s fun to know that my skincare tools are in the skincare fridge and are going to feel cool to the touch as I use them.  It makes the whole experience as I do it in the morning so much more therapeutic.  I find I’m more consistent too.  

Other Things You Can Use It For?

Once I got my skincare fridge I realized there were many other ways I could use it!  If you were going on a road trip it would be great to store some food or drinks that need to be refrigerated, or in your office to keep some drinks cold.  Also great for breastmilk storage!  Yes, I went there.  As a nursing mama I’m always thinking about scenarios where I might need a fridge, the Cooluli Mini Fridge makes it so easy.  It’s nice having a small type of cooler that can keep things cool for long periods of time.

Skincare Fridge: Is it worth it?

For me it has been totally worth it, but I’m also really into natural skincare.  If you prefer a more streamlined, simple skincare routine, then I could see how having a skincare fridge might seem like one more thing and not worth the hype.  It’s up to you!  I think it would be a great gift idea for those that are really into skincare.  It would be a fun way for them to maximize their skincare products even more.

Ursa Major Skincare

Ursa Major Skincare

Sharing my full review of Ursa Major Skincare line. Who doesn’t love a unisex line?!  I’ve been on the hunt for a line that not only would wow me, but also my husband.  Well, I think I’ve finally found what I’ve been searching for!

I had the pleasure of talking with Ursa Major at Indie Beauty Expo. and was so impressed with the amount of care and thought that went into each product.  This Vermont based company didn’t want to create another natural skincare line but a truly great skincare line.  I love that all their scents are fresh and not overpowering.  Great for any woman or man.  Their products are gluten free and cruelty free.  I love how they go into great depth about the ingredients they use on their website-so easy for a consumer to know right off the bat what their about.

A unisex line that delivers with performance and ingredients.

I love that they keep things simple in the Ursa Major Skincare line.  They are obsessed with natural skincare and creating formulas that truly work.  They spend much of their time focused wholeheartedly on what products they are actually creating.  They don’t want another product sitting on the shelf but something that they love.  They want products that perform and only have the essentials, not a long laundry list of ingredients.  Simple is best.  Lastly, they’re line is focused on all gender types- so it works for everyone!

Free from petrochemicals, SLS, SLES, parabens, synthetic fragrance or color, glycols, silicones or PEGs.

They don’t just stop there.  Ursa Major Skincare line is also obsessed with making a greater impact in this world.  That is why they are B Corp certified- meeting the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility. B Corps are more than just a company creating products, they are the gold standard when it comes to corporate and social responsibility.  They take into account the whole business, from employees, environment, community, and suppliers.  Ursa Major Skincare believes it’s more than just creating products, but creating last change for the greater good of our world.  Something I’m so excited to get behind! Check out more about their B Corp endeavors here.

Obsessed with this and Bright & Easy 3 minute flash mask!

Also, in case you were wondering…

  • Ursa Major means “The Great Bear” in latin.
  • The line was started by two individuals who were finding their true north while leaving the city life behind and settling into Vermont. Embracing the outdoors.
  • You will never see petrochemicals, SLS, SLES, parabens, synthetic fragrance or color, glycols, silicones or PEGs in Ursa Major Skincare.
  • The products are great for male or female.

Ok, time to share with you all the deets on the products I tried!

If you haven’t tried this Sublime Sage Deodorant- you need too!

Sublime Sage Spray Deodorant

Where has this deodorant been all my life?!  But really.  I first tried this in the fall of 2019 and let’s just say I was hooked after I used it for the first time.  I remember looking at it when I got it in the mail and thinking there is no way this is going to work.  I don’t know about you but spray deodorants have never worked for me- not even conventional ones.  That is until I tried Ursa Majors!  Wow this deodorant really delivers.  When I looked into it more I learned that sage actually helps dry up underarm sweat.  It smells fresh but not too potent.  I smell good all day.  The kicker and what makes it extra special is the fact it doesn’t get all over your clothes!  Most deodorants easily leave a residue all over your clothes and deodorant stains.  Not this one.  And guess what?  My hubs absolutely loves it.  He said it’s his favorite deodorant to date and asked if I could stock him up.  And that’s saying a lot because he’s pretty picky!  He loves that it doesn’t stain his clothes.  I can’t recommend it enough!

Scent- Sage, geranium, sandalwood and lemon myrtle.

Longevity- Awesome!  I smell good all day long.

Ease of Use- SO easy!  I love that it is just a spray.  Makes it so convenient and quick.

Packaging– Comes in a spray bottle.

Staining- It doesn’t stain!  Let me repeat myself- it doesn’t stain!

Irritation- None, if anything it’s better for sensitive underarms because there is no rubbing or chafing.

Baking Soda- None

Get it here!

Hoppin’ Fresh Deodorant

This is another fave natural deodorant of my husband and I!  This used to be my hub’s top deodorant pick and then Ursa Major made their spray deodorant.  This one is still on his fave list though- it smells divine.

Scents- Hoppin’ Fresh, blend of eucalyptus, ginger, rosemary, grapefruit, chamomile and lemon.

Longevity- Good, for me it lasted a solid day and my husband thought it lasted him the whole day easily.

Ease of Use- Awesome, goes on so easy!  My hubs kept telling me, this is exactly how a deodorant is supposed to go on. It reminded him of his mainstream deodorant.

Packaging- It comes in a stick form, that’s chubby and round.

Staining- I didn’t notice any on my shirts, my hubs noticed a little on a few shirts but he said it was more on his workout shirts- he sweats a lot!  🙂

Irritation- None

Baking Soda- Yes

Get it here!

Time to glow up with this mask!

Bright & Easy 3-Minute Flash Mask

This mask gets you glowing in 3 minutes flat- just like the name suggests.  It’s perfect for the most sensitive skin types.  Worried your skin might react to a harsh exfoliant?  This may be the one for you.  Using enzymes to dissolve dead skin cells, this mask does it all in 3 minutes!  It looks like a gel and feels light and refreshing on the skin.  If you’re perpetually running late, this may be the mask for you too- I mean who doesn’t have 3 minutes?!  I put it on before I brush my teeth and rinse off once I’m done.  The perfect amount of time to get a quick glow for the rest of the day.  Get it here!

Brighten Up Vitamin C Serum

This Ursa Major Skincare serum really goes deep into the skin to not only treat hydration but also help to brighten the skin overall.  It also helps to improve skin’s tone and appearance.  Unlike many forms of Vitamin C that are unstable, Ursa Major contains a stable form of Vitamin C.  But they didn’t stop their with stellar ingredients.  It also contains edelweiss- a stem cell complex that helps to fight the signs of aging with it’s high antioxidant properties.  Plus, one of my favorite skincare ingredients, rosehip oil is in the formula.  Rosehip is naturally high in Vitamin C and can really help to minimize fine lines and scarring.  Your skin feels overall hydrated and more supple after using.  This is also a great layer product.  So you can layer an oil over it, or a moisturizer for added hydration. Shop it here!

Golden Hour Recovery Cream

I recently discovered this cream a couple months ago and have been loving it. This has been the perfect moisturizer to add on top of my oils in the morning and at night for a little extra hydration.  I even used this when we were up in the mountains sledding for the day and it kept my skin feeling so hydrated and protected.  Not only does this cream moisturize but also provide great anti-aging benefits with it’s naturally rich antioxidants.  It seeps into my skin so well, and doesn’t feel greasy.  My hubs has been stealing this from me too-that means it’s good people!  He can be pickier than me at times.  What’s even better is the price tag on this cream, $48!  A steal for a green beauty cream that works and is full of skincare actives! Check it out here!

A power duo for your skincare regimen!

Face Wash

This face wash is such a great transition from mainstream to natural.  It just gets the job done.  It foams up a little, and gives your skin the clean feeling that you crave.  My hubs loves it too!  It gets rid of my makeup and grime but doesn’t strip my skin.  With aloe being the first ingredient, it’s no wonder this foaming face wash keeps my skin feeling balanced.  Did I mention the crazy fresh smell?!  With notes of cedar, spearmint and lime, this face wash smells divine.  If you have been searching for a basic face wash that gets your skin clean and is no fuss, this is it.  Perfect for the man in your life or the woman! Get it here!

face wipes on bathroom counter

Ursa Major’s Essential Wipes are just that- essential to always have with you!

 

Essential Face Wipes

These wipes from Ursa Major Skincare had me the first time I used them!  They come individually wrapped, and are perfect for your purse.  They’re made out of bamboo and are infused with their 4-in-1 Face Tonic Formula-genius. I carry them with me always, and use them anytime I need a little freshening up.  They get rid of dirt, sweat, and give your skin a quick clean.  I used these on vacation nonstop!  Goodbye sweat- hello fresh face.  So great for after working out, long walks, time spent at the pool…you get the picture.  Let’s just say I’m hooked!  Do you have kids?  These will be your best friend too.  I love using these to help clean my kiddos face in a pinch.  Anyone and everyone needs these.  Check out them out here!

 

Face Balm

This is unlike any moisturizer I’ve used.  It’s not heavy at all but actually quite light.  Although, it’s light it still feels so hydrating on the skin.  Great before applying makeup or even if I’m not wearing makeup that day as just a good overall moisturizer.  My hubs digs it too because it doesn’t feel greasy to him.  He never likes products that make his skin feel greasy- his biggest complaint when trying to find a moisturizer.  He also loves how this smells.  It has an herbal elixir in it of spearmint, lavender, lime and rosemary.  I love this before makeup too because it doesn’t feel like I have anything on yet my skin feels hydrated.  Another winning product!  Check it out here!

Shampoo and Conditioner

This is such a good all around shampoo and conditioner.  It really makes my hair feel extra clean and bouncy.  Not a heavy shampoo at all.  It still lathers a little too which I love.  It smells of citrus mixed with a little sandalwood.  The conditioner is light, yet my hair still feels hydrated. My husband also loves this shampoo too.  I have fine hair and it really gives it the clean feeling.  If you’ve been around clean beauty for any length of time then you know it can be hard to find a shampoo and conditioner that get the job done.  My sister tried it and she has thick coarse hair and she didn’t love it.  I know everyone has a different hair type so wanted to throw that out there.  Get it here!

This morning mojo bar soap will give you back your mojo in minutes!

Morning Mojo Bar Soap

My hubs and I love this bar soap!  If you haven’t noticed by now I love anything fresh and clean smelling.  This bar soap is just that.  It will wake you up and help you get your mojo going for the day and get you clean at the same time.  I also love a bar soap for travel, so much more convenient at times.  It’s also nice to just take one bar of soap with us instead of several body washes.  You will be addicted to the fresh scent- be warned! Check it out here!

Citrus Riot Body Wash

Love, love this Ursa Major Skincare body wash!  Did I mention I love it?  First, it comes in a pump, which makes it so easy to use in the shower, and it smells SO good!  With cedar, frankincense, ginger and lime- it literally wakes me up in the morning.  It gives a great foam, yet doesn’t feel drying to my skin at all.  I’m addicted!  I just can’t get over the fresh smell-neither can my hubs.  I love how gender neutral the scent is too.  It doesn’t smell too strong where my husband wouldn’t use it.  This is something I appreciate about Ursa Major Skincare line in general.  They really nail the scents so well.  Get it here!

Stellar Shave Cream

I was so excited to have my dad review this product.  My hubs uses an electric razor, so he couldn’t test this out on the face.  But my dad still uses a razor and was the perfect candidate.  What did he think?  A fan for sure!  He said it’s different than what he’s used to using.  He loved that it was so moisturizing compared to his usual shave cream.  Also, really liked the smell.  For me, it was great for the legs!  It moisturized and made my legs feel all tingly fresh.  Beyond thrilled to finally find a shave cream my dad can use that isn’t full of all the nasties and one that I can use too!  I mean traveling just got a whole lot easier when you’re only having to pack one shave cream and it works for everyone.  Check it out here!

Well that sums up my review of Ursa Major Skincare.  If you have been searching for a great all around line that just delivers quality products without the frills, this is it!  A great line for both men and women.  Shop all their goodies here.

Chili Pad

Now you might be wondering what a Chilipad is, or an Ooler Sleep System.  Allow me to explain.  It is a topper that goes underneath your sheets, and on top of your mattress to deliver cooling temperatures to your body.  It is a thermal delivery system that uses a water-based hydronic pad that keeps you cool at night so you can have better sleep.  They have the original Chilipad and the Ooler Sleep System.  The Ooler Sleep System includes all that the Chilipad offers but some added functions.  You fill a tank with water and it runs it through the pad delivering cooling temperatures with it.  Before I get into the Ooler Chilipad review I wanted to share a few more things with you about the sleep systems.  I got one for my hubs for his birthday and he’s obsessed!  He’s never had better sleep before!  Read my full review here!

*You can save $200 off a sleep system set with code: 3dayweekend -Ends 9/14.

Berkey

This is the water filter we use in our house and love!  We actually just upgraded to the Royal Berkey.  We realized we needed more water!  Especially with a third baby on the way.  I can’t recommend it enough.  It even filters out fluoride if you get the fluoride filter.  Can’t beat that!

Beauty Heroes: Pai Skincare

Products against a box

It’s all about Pai Skincare for the Beauty Heroes Box for September!

If you’ve been around natural beauty for even a bit then you’ve heard of Pai Skincare.  This brand has long been known for being suited for sensitive skin types. It is meant to soothe the skin and bring it back into balance.  Based out of London, the name Pai stands for, “goodness”.  They really strive to bring good into every aspect of their brand.  From the products, to the packaging and everything in between.  I love that the line was created by a women who was dealing with skincare issues herself.  She longed for a skincare line that would calm her irritated, sensitive and acne prone skin.  She couldn’t find such a line, so she created it herself!  

I have tried so many of Pai’s wonderful skincare offerings and I have to say they deliver.  Their formulas include soothing ingredients that really do bring a calmness to the skin while helping to treat it at the same time.  Let’s meet the all stars this month in the Beauty Hero box!

Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser- This cleanser takes the cake when it comes to moisture!  Skin feels so supple after using it.  It removes all makeup easily, and even doubles as an eye-makeup remover.  The formula is so gentle, it’s perfect for the most sensitive skin, and is great for calming redness.  I love that it’s alcohol free too! I will say for those who have struggled with sensitive skin, you may have found your needle in the haystack.  I’ve heard countless testimonies from sensitive skin peeps who swear they have finally found a cleanser that works, and doesn’t irritate.  A definite must for those who have dry/sensitive skin.  

Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil- This oil is perfect for removing even the most stubborn makeup.  Often sensitive skin can’t handle oils, this cleansing oil not only helps to give the skin a surge of moisture but also helps to gently remove the makeup that may still be lingering.  I love using this first then using the Camellia & Rose Gently Hydrating Cleanser after to really make sure my skin is squeaky clean. 

Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator- I discovered this exfoliator last year and since have been using it.  It really helps to brighten skin gently using jojoba beads. The jojoba beads aren’t harsh but gentle.  They glide over the skin easily, not disrupting skin’s natural moisture balance.  I apply this to clean damp skin and rub in circular motions.  Especially great for sensitive skin types. 

This month’s Beauty Heroes Discovery is valued at $128 but you can get it for $58.95.  Subscribe here!
