Beauty, the Beast and the Product of the Week: Cleanser

It’s Monday and you know what that means…

It’s time to reveal another product that I will forever have in my beauty arsenal.
A great BIG thank you to Ariel Barrow, who we will hear from in a couple of weeks in a Thursday beauty post. She is a Bobbi Brown make~up artist and drop dead gorgeous so when she makes recommendations, I listen.

I asked her about moisturizer because my skin is SO dry and nothing seems to help, especially since I had children. Her first question was, “What are you using to cleanse?” “Ummm…you mean when I don’t fall asleep with my make~up on?” was my response.

That’s when she led me to this incredible product that I am now on my second bottle of. That’s saying a lot as a bottle lasts a very long time.

Drum roll please…
What? Soothing Cleansing Oil
Luxury meets simplicity – Bobbi’s new Soothing Cleansing Oil is a quick yet luxurious way to cleanse skin. Made with soothing jasmine flower extract (sourced directly from France), moisturizing kukui nut oil, and a blend of Italian olive, organic sunflower and jojoba oils to dissolve surface impurities and makeup without leaving skin feeling tight or dry. Can be used in the morning to wake up and refresh skin, and at night as a soothing end to a long day.

Where? Online at Bobbi Brown Cosmetics or a cosmetic counter at one of these stores;

Why?  Simple…because it works. It is the first thing that has worked for me! Remember when I told you about the Neutrogena Wipes? I still love those and don’t hesitate to use them when I’m too lazy to actually wash my face. (Don’t judge me. I’m the girl who would fall asleep in her make~up every night. These are huge strides.) Another thing I love about this product is that it washed off all of my eye make~up so no extra steps.

Cost? Right around $40 (one bottle lasts me at least 3 months) It is so worth it!


About this whole beauty thing… It’s easy to play. Here’s what you do:

1. List your favorite product or routine in the comments section below (it has to be something that you have tried.) Answer these 4 things, 1. What (Is the product or routine?) 2. Where (can you find it?) 3. Why (do you love it?) 4. Cost (ballpark figure, less than $10, less than $20, and so on.) Let me know if you want me to write about it in a future product post.

2. You may have 100 things, like I do when it comes to mascara, moisturizer and the things we would have a hard time choosing between if asked, “Out of these things, what 1 thing would you take if stranded on a desert island?” You can list a new one each week. Start with your favorite.

3. Before you know it, we will have an amazing list of products loved by real people. We will pick one favorite each week.

Before you go, why not participate in the beauty question poll.
