The Face Shop Mango Seed Glow Date-Prep Butter–Review

I’m a married lady now. Gone are the days of feigning that I have perfect hair/skin/nails/teeth/personality. Hubby sees me when I first wake up in the morning (before I even realize I have a huge zit on my forehead), he sees me at before we go to bed (pink acne cream dotted across my cheeks), and he sees my when I’m sick (pretending to be Puff the Magic Dragon with tissue stuffed up my nostrils).

But that doesn’t mean I don’t still at least try.

Cue The Face Shop’s Mango Seed Glow Date-Prep Butter. On TFS’s website: “A must-have date-prep butter that delivers moisture and a fair glowing complexion to increase your date’s attraction.”

Ooh, so this magical cream can increase my attraction? I’ll take it! 😉

It seems like I always end up trying trends backwards. I was addicted to sheet masks before I even tried my first Korean BB cream, I didn’t like matte lipsticks until after their peak, and I tried a “solid” version of an oil cleanser before an actual oil. Oy vey!

If you hadn’t heard, oil cleansers are great for those with oily skin because oil breaks down oil. It may sound counter intuitive, but cleansing with an oil at the end of the day can help to sweep away all that excess sebum that has built up. Oil cleansers also break down your stubborn, oil based makeup with ease, thus preparing your skin for the second cleanse step: the foaming cleanser. But we’ll leave the foam for another day. 😉

My first actual oil cleanser experience was with The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing Oil. Phew! That’s a mouthful.

The Face Shop Charcoal Konjac Sponge–Review

Konjac sponges have had my attention for awhile now. They look like pumice stones, feel like sponges, and exfoliate like a dream. But with so many kinds, brands, and places to buy, I was intimidated. I mean, I didn’t even know if I’d like it!

So today, I’ll be reviewing this little sponge from The Face Shop. It’s the Charcoal & Konjac Cleansing Puff.
