Facial Products *REVIEWS*

Equate Apricot Scrub (left) & Neutrogena Acne Stress Control (right)

First I'm going to review the Apricot Scrub.
Blemish & Blackhead Control
Gently Exfoliates to prevent blemishes and cleanse pores
- oil free 
- with 2% Salicylic acid
-with natural exfoliants
For oily or acne prone skin

My thoughts: I find that this scrub has a very rough texture. After using this my tub feels like I have sand all over, but it works! I no longer have black heads on my nose & my acne is finally under control.  This stuff does a great job at cleaning my face & getting rid of  the oil. Overall I really do like this product. It tends to leave my face a bit dry after using it so a moisturizer is a must.

Now on to the Toner:
Oil Free acne stress control triple-action toner
- Treats Acne even before it emerges
- eliminates oil & shine
- Refreshes & soothes

My thoughts:
It worked somewhat at taking the dirt out of my pores but I mostly bought this for the "shine control". After using this my skin was still oily looking.  It didn't help prevent acne, as a matter of a fact my face was horrible while I was using this product. Now that I stopped using it my face is getting alot better. The only thing I like about this is the smell. It's not strong like most facial products.

I got this in my Target Beauty Bag.
Pond's Wet Cleansing Towelettes
- evening soothe with chamomile & white tea
-Breathe deep and unwind.
A perfect end to the day. Pond's Evening Soothe Towelettes gently clean away all traces of dirt and make-up, while calming the skin and senses. These soft, textured clothes wipe away the day while releasing the relaxing fragrance of Chamomile and White Tea.
*Removes waterproof mascara
*Dermatologist tested
*safe for contact lens wearers.

My thoughts: First of all the scent is amazing and very calming. These wipes did a wonderful job of removing all my makeup easily. I usually use baby wipes, but honestly they would always burn my eyes. The pond's wipe are very gentle & I'm able to remove my eye makeup without causing my eyes to burn. My face feels soft and refreshed after using these. I will purchase a full size asap.


  1. I loved the Pond's towelettes from my Target beauty bag too! They smell so good and I'll be buying more soon as well!

  2. The smell is just amazing! That's my favorite thing about them:)

  3. I'm a sucker for products that smell good!!!

  4. I just got my beauty bag thinking I wasn't getting one...nice surprise. I haven't tried those wipes yet but hope I like them! I might have to try that scrub out...I am always up for trying a new scrub =)

  5. Miranda- I didn't think I was going to get mine either. The site kept messing up so I was so excited to see it in my mailbox. The bag is too cute.

  6. I use the Equate scrub and it has done a great job and much less expensive than the scrub I used to use.I will have to try the Ponds wipes.

  7. I just got the target bag as well! Excited to try them after your great review!
