Garnier Skinactive Micellar Makeup Removing Towelettes Review

Garnier Skinactive Micellar Makeup Removing Towelettes are a brand new makeup cleansing wipe infused with Garnier’s Waterproof Micellar Water that removes all your makeup quickly and easily without stripping skin that are available in regular and waterproof formulas!

These are totally worth picking up if you’re a lazy makeup remover. I see you out there sleeping in your makeup. Stop it! Get a pack of these and call it a day.

Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Waters launched in the UK and Asia a year or so before they hit the US Market in 2015. Since that time they have gained a fast cult following with a just released mattifying formula as well as new cleansing wipes. I was hopeful that the new moisturizing Oil‑Infused Cleansing Water would have launched in the US along with these new wipes but they might be waiting for Spring 2018 to gift us with that.

When you have a bestselling product on your hands you’re probably left to wonder, “What next?” Next comes by dumping the contents of your bottle of micellar water into a convenient travel-friendly wipe.

These medium-sized makeup wipes that isn’t overly saturated with product but wet enough to remove a good deal of your makeup. Good news for sensitive users they are actually fragrance-free which is sometimes rare with Garnier skincare. They are available in both the regular (pink bottle) and waterproof (blue bottle) micellar water formula. I actually prefer the waterproof version as they are a bit tougher on waterproof mascara and eye makeup.

Makeup wipes are makeup wipes in my opinion. They aren’t something I use terribly often but they are super travel-friendly and they do a good job of removing makeup when I’m in a hurry to get to bed. But I do feel much cleaner if I use my regular nightly cleanser which is why I’m not one to regularly rely on wipes to remove my makeup. However, micellar wipes are actually a bit more effective at removing makeup in my opinion. They seem to capture makeup a lot easier and my skin feels a lot cleaner when using them. Garnier’s waterproof version actually removed about 95% of my makeup no problem! Best part? They actually worked well on my face! Why do you ask? Because the original Garnier Skinactive Waterproof Micellar Water is something I love to remove my eye makeup but I’m not a huge fan of using it on my face since it leaves an odd oily film behind. The wipes doesn’t have the same issue. They remove makeup easily without leaving any residue behind. Quick tip: hold one of the wipes against your closed eye lid for several seconds prior to gently wiping away your eye makeup! This allows your eye makeup to remove a lot easier.

The bottles are probably a more cost efficient option for a few more dollars compared to a pack of 25 wipes which will set you back around $4.99-$6.99 versus a 13.5 oz bottle at $6.99-$8.49 but the wipes are way more travel-friendly not to mention I really like the waterproof wipes a lot better for all over my face compared the waterproof micellar water.

All in all, Garnier Skinactive Micellar Makeup Removing Towelettes get a Muse Approval. If you frequently use makeup wipes, just need something that will travel-friendly in your purse or tote, or you’re one for getting in late and needing to remove your makeup in a hurry you’ll love these.

Get them now at amazon.com, ulta.com, target.com, walgreens.com, and other drugstores.

Pantene Micellar Revitalize Foam Conditioner Review

Foaming conditioner is apparently a thing now didn’t you know? Pantene Micellar Revitalize Foam Conditioner ($5.99) is one of several new foaming conditioners that are formulated for finer hair that have recently launched at the drugstore.

Pantene was one of the first brands to bring us BB Cream for our hair so when I noticed they were doing micellar hair care I wasn’t too surprise however, foaming conditioner? That was definately new, unique, and different from anything I’ve seen before from any hair care brand. I mean, this isn’t even a case of what’s old is new again as I can’t recall any brand ever releasing a foaming conditioner.

This, I had to try.

Pantene Micellar Revitalize Foam Conditioner arrives in a can that resembles hair mousse and once you use it you’ll find the texture is exactly like one as well. My sister and I had hit up Harmon’s recently and she was like, “Have you seen these? I saw a commercial for them! It’s a foaming conditioner!” She’s way ahead of the game because that moment was the first time I had ever heard of them. But I wasn’t terribly impressed and replied, “Oh you mean like a leave in conditioner? I prefer mists!” And she was quick to correct me and tell me no, this wasn’t a leave in treatment it was a wash out one. After looking at the can I was like, “Hmm maybe I need to check this out!”

Although, I don’t have finer hair and each formula that have of this foam conditioner available in for such a hair type I decided to give it a whirl.

Apparently it contains a Pro-V Micellar conditioning agent that has 0% weight whatever that is! They make no promises of it lifting away dirt or oil but merely a formula that rinses away easily and leaves hair soft and light.

After using it I totally get where they are going with this! If you have finer hair or hair that tends to break easily this is most definitely a formula for you. For long hair, you’ll need to use a palm size amount for the best results. I actually LOVED how light, airy, and easy to rinse out this was. I also adored how it left zero build up in my hair and rinses away fully. This isn’t a conditioner that will cause build up and you’ll experience a hell of a lot less hair loss and shedding as you rinse it out compared to a thicker conditioner. I shed like a dog when I condition my hair but when I used this I didn’t notice a single strand of hair go down the drain.

The texture is exactly like a hair mousse but as you apply it to your hair it has a bit more density than your average mousse. It somehow almost feels like it goes from a mousse to a lighter cream as you massage it into your hair but it also seems to melt right into your hair as you apply it. Once applied you can leave it on for a few minutes and allow it to condition your locks before rinsing it out. You’ll want to wash your hair first as normal before following up with this as your conditioner.

It rinses out very, very easily and I was shocked how well it worked out tangles and kinks in my long, wavy hair. As I brushed my hair after I was very impressed how it detangled my hair and tamed a bit of my frizz. However, I did feel like I needed a LITTLE more hydration. If they could fix that one issue this is near a perfect product.

Even if you aren’t prone to finer hair I would definitely check out the Pantene Micellar Revitalize Foam Conditioner! It’s a very interesting product that I had some fun with!

Available now at drugstores.

Shiseido to ring in the New Year with neuroscience-inspired skincare launch

The high-tech mindfulness brand that is Essential Energy was developed, according to Shiseido’s press release, to address consumer concerns that they are becoming desensitized to skin care. 

Shiseido’s new brand seems positioned in a way that encourages both consumers and their skin to be more present in practice of skin care.  

Inspiration  

Neurocosmetics have been an intriguing niche for a few years now. And this Shiseido launch may be the brand that moves the trend squarely into the mainstream.

Shiseido claims to have applied neuroscience research to developing the Essential Energy skin care line. “Harnessing the combined power of science and nature, SHISEIDO’s ReNeura Technology activates the power of touch to awaken unresponsive skin and to boost the effectiveness of skincare products,” ​according to the company’s release.

“The formulation is imbued with an Active Response Powder that is made of malleable spheres that guide the skin’s senses to detect information and damage in real time. Combined with the regenerative force of Ashitaba that helps preserve and sustain the energy required for efficient sensory transmission, ReNeura Technology helps forge inner connections that improve skin’s ability to employ the power of skincare, bringing out lasting beauty,” ​explains Shiseido.

The products are formulated with intriguing ingredients as well, like Assam tea extract, pearl extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis root extract, and Citrus Unshiu peel extract.

Scentbird Spreads Its Wings With Personal-Care Launch

Scentbird is spreading beyond its fragrance-sampling roots.
This month, the digital subscription service revealed a line of personal-care and home fragrance items including hand creams and shower products.
To overcome challenges inherent in buying without sniffing, the scents were developed based on consumer insights gleaned from its subscription membership.
“Since the very inception of Scentbird, we have been dreaming of creating our very own line of scents,” said Mariya Nurislamova, chief executive officer and cofounder of Scentbird. “Over the past few years, we have gotten to know the Scentbird consumer quite intimately — everything from what makes them love one scent and hate another, to what trends inspire them or turn them off completely.” Through customer feedback and insights, Scentbird has taken that knowledge and bottled it up, very literally.”
The first line of products features six cruelty-free hand creams formulated with moisture-rich vitamins, essential oils and real fruit extracts. The Scentbird Hand Creams are formulated to quickly absorb into the skin leaving no residue or tackiness. The scents include Rose & Prosecco, Cucumber & Lotus White Tea & Fig, Earl Grey & Blackberry, Pineapple & White Amber and Yuzu & Ginger. There are also four shower products featuring natural exfoliants such as ground

Just in time for winter hydration, Vaseline’s latest innovation is the new  Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Smoothing Body Butter ($5.98). Made with 100% pure cocoa and shea butter, this rich creme contains four-times more emollients than any of its other lotions, said the company. The body butter’s thicker texture allows the product to melt into skin for an indulgent soothing experience providing enhanced moisturization, which is crucial for winter skin care.

Vaseline partner and award-winning actress Viola Davis celebrated the launch of the product earlier this week in LA. She shared, “Vaseline has been a part of my everyday routine since childhood and has helped me understand the importance of maintaining healthy skin. I love the new Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Smoothing Body Butter because it’s made with 100% pure cocoa butter, shea butter and healing Vaseline Jelly. The combination of ingredients is the perfect trifecta for moisturizing dry skin.”
