Scrubs -Unlisted Brand - Wei Pomegranate buffing beads

This is a first response review. I like that you add the "beads" to your usual cleanser, I think that's a cool concept. The packet was a bit hard to tear open, but luckily I had scissors right there to help out as I already had soap in my hand ready to go. It looks like sand, feels a bit like sand. It seems like a lot of sand, but it's not too abrasive. I have sensitive skin so I'm always worried about these kind of products, but this felt really nice. It does take a while to wash off and even when I thought I had gotten it all, while applying my moisturizer I could feel little grains still on my skin (that's why it only gets 4 stars.) When I rinsed my face I could not believe how great my skin looked and felt! I was not expecting that. I wasn't red and blotchy (my normal, immediate reaction to exfoliates), my skin looked bright and even, my pores looked smaller, my face was smooth and soft. I will update this review next time I use one of these packets, but so far I am in love with this product!

Amazing lashes! I tried my mom's new tube of this and didn't put any mascara on (it was upstairs and I couldn't be bothered, I was just playing with her new haul) and wasn't impressed. My lashes didn't look any better and felt a bit stiff and the tips stayed white. Later when I applied some Lancome mascara I could not believe how great my lashes looked! They were long, thick, and curled! I have kind of crap lashes so I was so excited I made my mom go with me to Sephora right then so I could get my own tube! I'm not a fan of the Diorshow mascara though :/
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer

Not for sensitive skin. I loved this product at first, it goes on nicely, smells nice, feels light, but moisturizing, etc. I went into this knowing that I have sensitive skin and only used it once every other day. I wasn't using the night cream, just the day cream. I didn't notice any irritation at first, but after about 2 weeks my skin started feeling really sensitive. My clarisonic hurt my face, my usual eye cream started burning upon application. Since I know these products don't normally irritate my skin and the only new item was the Neutrogena I stopped using it. It's too bad, it seems like a great product.
