The always beautiful Kristen Bell graces November’s cover of Women’s Health. The Couple’s Retreat star opened up to Women’s Health about some of her favorite beauty products!

Random Fact: Did you know that it’s Kristen Bell narrates the opening of Gossip Girl? I didn’t either! Crazy, I always thought it was Leighton Meester!

Wen Cleansing Conditioner

“It feels like conditioner, but it actually cleanses your hair. And it doesn’t make you an oily mess.”

The WEN® Cleansing Conditioner is a revolutionary new concept in cleansing your hair that has Hollywood buzzing! It’s special because it cleanses hair thoroughly but without lathering and all the harsh ingredients that may be found in ordinary shampoos — it is designed so it won’t strip your hair and scalp of their natural oils. Your hair is left with sheen, moisture, manageability and better color retention.

A total dud… Komenuka Bijin’s Makeup Remover

I tried this product, based on this review below:

Product Description
All-Natural and fragrance-free, Komenuka Bijin’s Makeup Remover gently removes makeup and cleans pores. Vitamins A, B1, and B2 rejuvenate your skin while removing makeup, and aloe helps make your skin truly healthy.Fragrance-free, Komenuka Bijin’s Makeup Remover gently removes makeup and cleans pores. Vitamins A, B1, and B2 rejuvenate your skin while removing makeup, and aloe helps make your skin truly healthy. If you’re looking for a safe, all-natural, and effective anti-aging regimen you’ve found it in rice bran – a centuries old beauty regimen and the secret of the ageless Japanese complexion.

Benefit from the miracle that’s been around for centuries!

The Japanese have known for generations that the potent vitamins and antioxidants in rice cleanse, tone, tighten, and regenerate softer and suppler skin. Now it’s available in a highly concentrated unscented formula, along with other pure and all natural ingredients. No other product are available, at any price, with such a high amount of potent ingredients and no chemicals or artificial fillers. You’ll use less and see visible results sooner than other more expensive products.

TrueRenu does the searching – and researching – for you. We look for hard to find, hard working products that do what they promise, and we bring them to you with detailed descriptions. We like Komenuka Bijin for its high amounts of antioxidant rich rice bran, and other natural ingredients. Because the active ingredient is so dominant, you’ll see the benefits sooner – and use less.

Product Size: Net Weight: 100g, or about 3.5 ounces.

But let me tell you, I thought this product STUNK. It’s a makeup remover, shouldn’t it remove makeup? I wear black eyeliner at times, and this remover wouldn’t remove the liner. It left me with makeup still on my face, and I was extremely frustrated. The two times I tried this product, I had to finish with another face wash – just to get the eye makeup off! Not to mention this product left a slimy film on my face. It wasn’t a good product at all, and I’m not going to tell you where you can buy it – cause it costs $36! If you’re looking for a makeup remover like I was – stick with the always amazing Lancome’s Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover.
