Review: Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator

This is a long and fancy term for “basically liquid sandpaper.”

It’s extremely effective! It really does buff my skin nicely, and it smells pleasant. But beware. I have to use it in the shower with warm water. I tried to wash my face at the skin with cool water and this scrub, and I thought my skin was going to peel off.

But it really is a great scrub! Just…I don’t think I’ll spend $34 for it. I’ll probably invest in the Clarisonic Mia instead.

Review: Mox Botanicals Lip Butter in Pomegranate and Fig

This came in my December 2012 Birchbox, and it’s probably one of the most useful things I’ve gotten! The scent is nice without being overpowering, and the texture is perfect for layering under my lipsticks and lip glosses.

But I probably won’t buy a new one when I run out. $16 for a tiny container? Mmm…no thanks.
