Curtain Call: Hey Honey Come Clean: Propolis & Minerals Facial Scrub

Hey guys! It’s been a while. I caught the flu but am recovering from it finally. I think this might be the first time I’ve ever gotten it in my life! Today’s post is another edition of Curtain Call. I got this product from my ipsy August 2017 Glam Bag. I didn’t get a chance to try it until recently. Here’s my take on the Lierac Paris Mesolift Serum.

Hey Honey Come Clean: Propolis & Minerals Facial Scrub

Stated from their website:

    WHAT IS IT:
    A rich, cleansing and exfoliating scrub that is gentle enough for sensitive skin. Deep cleans the skin, dissolving residue in large pores to make pores less apparent. Leaves the skin clearer, smoother, and brighter.

    WHY USE IT:
    The non-abrasive, crystalline beads help to clear away blackheads and dead skin cells, while the infused Propolis extract works to provide moisture to the skin.

    WHO IS IT FOR:
    All skin types.

    HOW TO USE:
    Gently spread over face and cheeks. Gradually add water with fingertips until all mineral crystals are dissolved. Massage the resulting lotion into the skin for 1 minute. Rinse with cool water.

What I love about this product? I like facial scrubs in general so I was excited to try this one. I followed the instructions the best that I could and sometimes not all of the “mineral crystals” dissolve. And water will start running down my hands and arms when I try to do the adding water to it part onto my face. It did leave my skin soft but I didn’t get that squeaky clean feeling like with some other facial scrubs. It’s good for those that prefer their skin left moisturized after use. It smells really, really good…..like pineapple and whipped cream.

What I don’t like about this product? It’s a personal preference for me, but I like facial scrubs to be more on the cleansing side (leaning more on the squeaky clean rather than moisturizing). Also, it costs at least twice as much as other facial scrubs I’ve used that I like.

More information on this item and other products the brand carries is available on their website here.

Walmart Winter 2017 Beauty Box

Better late than never! I got this box about month ago but never got around to posting it until now. Holidays are always a busy time for me. I like how they mixed it up a little bit more with this box — I think it’s one of the more different ones from their past boxes. Still a great deal for $5 just to try these out. Here’s what I got in my Walmart Winter 2017 Beauty Box.

Overall, like I mentioned earlier I feel like they changed it up more with this box compared to the previous ones. This is mostly due to the sleeping mask and the flossers. I’m very glad they decided to switch up from the usual travel size shampoo and conditioner. I feel like they’ve done that A LOT. They have a lotion in just about every box too but at least they do change that up I think.
