Green Tea Enzyme Powder Wash by Wishtrend

If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw my post and brief review on Wishtrend’s Green Tea Enzyme Powder Wash.

I wanted to write a more in-depth review on here, and really focus on the benefits of the ingredients.

This is specifically made for all skin types, which is a plus. It hydrates the skin while controlling blackheads, and is made to not pull skin or cause irritation while cleansing. Which is great for sensitive skin!

So lets get into the benefits of the key ingredients!

The main ingredient is of course, Green Tea, which is a powerful antioxident as is full of vitamins A, C, & E.

Vitamin A encourages healthy skin cell production, it stimulates the cells that develop tissue that keep the skin firm and healthy.

Vitamin C has antioxidant properties, which help to fight against free radicals. Which in turn helps to fight against aging skin.

Vitamin E also helps block free radicals, it can also reduce the visibility of scars, reduce the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and brown spots.

Green Tea also is a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer.

This face wash also contains baking soda, which is a great exfoliant. It also helps to neutralize chemicals that can cause skin irritation. It also helps to fight against blackheads, cleanse pores, and helps improve acne-prone skin.

The next key ingredient is Papain, it helps renew the skin as well as lighten it. It’s also a natural exfoliant, skin softener, moisturizer, and helps fight acne. It also helps the body to fight free radicals, thus again, preventing aging.

And the last key ingredient is Amino acid surfactants,

“A weakly acidic surfactant derived from coconut. Great skin-affinity and excellent moisture retention.
Low irritant and has excellent moisturizing effect, without creating much foam.” – (Taken from the Wishtrend website).

To use this product you pour a decent amount of powder into your hand, and add a little bit of water until you get the amount of lather you’d like. If you have thin sensitive skin, the website recommends not to use more than 2-3 times a week.

I really did enjoy this face wash, it left my skin feeling the smoothest it’s ever felt from a face wash, super refreshed, and clean!

LimeLight Dream Clean: Aloe & Soapberry Face Cleanser Review

Hey guys! My Uncle fixed my laptop (again… it’s seriously died twice now) so now I’ll hopefully be a little more consistent with my blog posts!

I decided that I wanted to write a little snippet about the LimeLight Dream Clean sample that I got from my friend Sabrina. I used it the other night to wash my face and take all my makeup off. Usually I use a makeup wipe first to take off the bulk of my eye makeup, and then I use a face wash, and a deep face cleanser a couple of times a week. So I decided to go in with a full face of makeup to see how well this cleanser worked… and oh my goodness… my face has NEVER felt so clean. I NEED to get my hands on more of this stuff. My face felt super soft, and clear, it was amazing and very refreshing!

“The ingredients in Dream Clean are so exceptional, but here are some true stars of the show:

Aloe Vera – helps heal the skin, creates a “shield” to keep pollutants out and moisture in, and promotes redevelopment of new, healthy skin cells.

Soapberry – this plant contains natural saponins that cleanse the skin. These extracts have been proven to inhibit melanin production, reducing the appearance of age spots and sun damage. Saponins also fight bacteria, which makes this a great cleanser for acne prone skin.

Extract of White Tea – this extract offers antioxidant benefits to the skin cells. Spirulina Platensis Algae – is known to provide firming qualities to the skin as well as substantial hydration.”

I love that LimeLight is phthalate free,  paraben free,  chemical free,  cruelty free! I went through the ingredients and researched them one by one, over all this face cleanser is pretty clean chemically! Which I’ll admit, I don’t always use the cleanest products, because a lot of the time they either have horrible color options (for makeup) or they just don’t apply well, or clean well. So I’m happy to have more natural options, and I’m really excited that this brand popped up.

I also LOVE skincare products and I hate when a company only has a few options. Click here to see all these amazing skincare options! Hopefully I can make an order later this month!

Dirty Works: Overnight Facial Lift (Night Cream) Review

61tnsrfiznl-_sx522_

I’m just nearing the end of my Dirty Works Night Cream that I swiped at TJMaxx for I think it was $6 or so, a much better price than the $14 Amazon is asking. Although with all things that come from TJMaxx, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll never see it there again… And so far I haven’t seen this night cream again.

At first when I started using this product I wasn’t sure if it was giving me some bad chin blemishes. I don’t get acne often so when I do it’s usually those horrible internal things on your chin that make you want to scream, and I’m still not sure if it was pure coincidence or not. But after using this product for weeks I finally stopped getting any blemishes on my chin, so maybe it was another product I happened to be using at the same time…

SO! Besides those nasty blemishes in the beginning, I really do LOVE this night cream! At first I didn’t notice any major differences, but it even states on the tube that you won’t really see any results until 8 weeks of use, and I’ve been using it for about 6 weeks now and am finally noticing some changes. I don’t have a lot of fine lines or wrinkles, but I did notice the skin around my eyes firm up quite a bit after a couple of weeks and that’s exactly what I was looking for! It has collagen in it, which is really awesome for your skin  (it’s great for your joints, hair, skin, and nails in supplement form, but obviously ask your doctor).  I’m always worried about how much pulling I do on the skin around my eyes, just with applying makeup and taking it off everyday/every other day. So I’m always looking for ways to help prevent any kind of damage in the future as I age, so I was really happy when I started noticing the effects of this product! It’s also been great for my skin during these drying winter months, and I’ve really had no issues with dry skin like I usually do this time of year.

I use this cream every night after washing my face, and before I brush my teeth so it gives it some time to dry before I go to sleep. Sometimes it can make your face feel a little sticky at first, but once it’s dry you can’t really notice it and by the time it’s morning there’s not residue at all. I definitely would purchase this again if I ever found it at TJMaxx or a discounted price, but as for now I like to try new things just to write reviews on. So if you have any favorite night creams, feel free to comment them below. I’d love to try them! 🙂
