Good Thursday morning! Today I wanted to share two quick reviews on two beauty products with you! They are kind of pricey, so read on before you go spending your hard-earned cash…
First, a reader asked me a few weeks ago to check out the new Crest 3D Whitening mouthwash so I did! I’ve been using it for three weeks now, morning and night.
The verdict? SKIP IT.
It’s wildly overpriced — that bottle is teeny tiny — and I haven’t seen a noticeable difference. I actually saved the receipt and I am going to take the company up on the “If you don’t like it, we’ll send you a refund!” offer. No one can beat Crest Whitestrips, but I have yet to find a decent competitor for the Listerine Whitening Pre-Brush Rinse (and I’ve tried many others)! The Listerine works within a few days. And I will be buying another bottle of that as soon as I get through this one!
Next up, I wanted to share this new SPF before your summer officially kicks off this weekend! I love me some Neutrogena even though I hate wearing sunscreen. So when I saw that the newest Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunblock promised it “looks invisible and feels like water on the skin”…I was unable to talk myself out of spending $12 on a bottle.
The verdict? DAMN, IT’S TRUE!
Sorry you guys, but it’s amazing. It feels like nothing. I actually kept putting on more because it didn’t feel like I was putting anything on. It barely even smells like sunscreen. Because it’s so pricey, though, I’m going to make vanity less expensive and only use it for outdoor events when I care about looking good. Like…a date at a baseball game or a picnic with friends when the camera is coming along. I wouldn’t want to sweat it all off during an outdoor workout. But the good news is, you can get a $2 off coupon on the Neutrogena Web site.
One other quick beauty-related note: a few of you echoed my sadness at the great Maybelline Lash Stylist having been discontinued. You can still get it on e-bay! Tons and tons of discontinued cosmetics and perfume right there. So all is not lost!
Have a great day!
