Slowly but surely I loved it.

When I try new products I tend to pick the ones with the most user awards, I figure if that many people love it shouldn’t I? After my Bliss face wash ran out I decided to try Philosophy’s Purity face wash, it had after all won Best of Sephora a few times. The first time I used it, it felt like I was washing my face with lotion and I was not impressed. I like a really squeaky clean feel when I was my face and this felt too creamy to actually be cleaning my face.

In order to really get a feel for it I decided I would keep using it for a week and see if it changed my mind. Each time I washed my face it won me over bit by bit I realized while it was creamy it left my face feeling really clean but not tight or over dry. Now my test week is over and I really do love this face wash. It’s gentle and creamy and leaves my face feeling squeaky clean without feeling like it will crack if I smile.

If you want to try Purity yourself a great way to sample is try the smaller travel size bottle like I did, it’s a much smaller investment up front and you can be sure you like it before buying the full size.

California Baby Super Sensitive Everyday Lotion

Another great product I have had the chance to try recently is California Baby’s Super Sensitive Everyday Lotion. My kids have had sensitive skin since birth so I have to be careful what kind of lotion and products I use on them. I love this lotion it really has helped keep my kids skin moisturized during the cold months. One note though you need to use this sparingly its a really thick lotion so if you put too much on you are going to have to really work to get it to absorb.

California Baby Super Sensitive Everyday Lotion

Age: Newborn and older
Scent: No fragrance

Product description: California Baby®’s luxurious Super Sensitive™ Everyday Lotion is perfect for those with allergies or fragrance intolerance or who are following a homeopathic regime. In addition to being free of fragrance or scent-masking agents, this hypoallergenic lotion does not contain any nut oils, gluten, soy, oat, dairy or alcohol. Vitamin E and aloe vera are infused into high quality, cold pressed vegetable oils that are non-greasy and absorb quickly to create a silky smooth lotion that leaves the skin with a long-lasting satiny finish – an excellent bed or naptime lotion. Keep skin healthy and make this part of an after shower or bath routine. Our custom pump locks in the ‘up’ position making this lotion perfectly portable in a diaper bag, gym bag, or backpack without worrying about a mess.

A note from Jessica, developer of California Baby®: Most of us know that our skin needs to be well hydrated so our bodies can continue to function in top form, but moisturizing daily, like flossing, can be a pain–we’re in a hurry! California Baby® Super Sensitive™ Everyday Lotion is designed to slip on quickly and easily. Quench your skin’s thirst for moisture while helping your body maintain the protective layer that keep germs out. To further protect skin and guard against sunburn, use our non-chemical SPF30+ sun care products. It’s never too soon (or too late) to start your children on a healthy skin care regime because damage from the sun and dryness start from day one.

I finally tried Bliss The Youth as We Know It and I absolutely love it. It’s so light and feels amazing going on, the concentrate leaves a clean not heavy feeling and has a slight citrus scent. I have only been using it for a week and my skin is starting to look brighter and it feels smoother. Another great Bliss product if you have yet to try Bliss this is a great choice to start with.
