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
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
*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.
