Drugstore Buy of the Week - Method Limited Edition Hand Soaps



Method Limited Edition Gel Hand Soap Ginger Tea 
I've been a big fan of Method products for years, and I'm always amazed by the fragrance combinations they create to make home a lovely, clean smelling environment.

This spring they've launched a limited edition hand soap line inspired by wellness drinks, tea culture and minimalist decor.  The scents are all calming to provide a few minutes of serenity each and every time you wash your hands.


The line includes soaps featuring ocean waves, white rose, chamomile lavender and Ginger Tea (my personal favorite).  All the Method soaps feature aloe and vitamin E, and are ethyl alcohol-free, DMDM Hydantoin-free, Petroleum-free, aluminum chlorohydrate-free, formaldehyde donor-free, nut oil and extract-free

Method Limited Edition Gel Hand Soap Ginger Tea (which also comes in a foam version), is based on the feeling you get when you have a warm cup of ginger lemon tea. The fragrance is spot on with equal does of both ginger and lemon, and the gel is concentrated and silky.


I love that when I used Method Limited Edition Gel Hand Soap Ginger Tea my hands were completely clean, but not tight or dry when I dried them off.  The scent lingered nicely throughout the day, but never became overwhelming.

Beauty Find - Boscia Tsubaki Swirl Two-Part Gel & Cream Deep Hydration Moisturizer


Boscia Tsubaki Swirl Two-Part Gel & Cream Deep Hydration Moisturizer

Boscia Tsubaki Swirl Two-Part Gel & Cream Deep Hydration Moisturizer is my favorite new lightweight night cream.  This is perfect for those of you with oily/normal/combination skin that needs some overnight moisture, but are in a warm climate or season.  


Boscia Tsubaki Swirl Two-Part Gel & Cream Deep Hydration Moisturizer is a innovative two-part moisturizer that has both a cream part and a gel part.  The cream seals in the gel, and it becomes practically weightless on your skin and absorbs in seconds.  The white cream contains the heavier hydrating and firming ingredients, including tsubaki (camellia) oil and rice bran, and the pink gel contains the lighter nourishing ingredients, like sodium hyaluronate.




Boscia Tsubaki Swirl Two-Part Gel & Cream Deep Hydration Moisturizerhas a light, citrus scent and feels cools and pampering on on the skin.  With my combination skin that leans towards oily in warmer weather, this was the perfect amount in hydration.   The white cream contains the heavier hydrating and firming ingredients, including tsubaki (camellia) oil and rice bran, while the pink gel contains the lighter nourishing ingredients, like sodium hyaluronate.

Boscia Tsubaki Swirl Two-Part Gel & Cream Deep Hydration Moisturizer comes with a dispensing spatula which is perfect for those of you who don't like putting your fingers in jars.  I also liked using Boscia Tsubaki Swirl Two-Part Gel & Cream Deep Hydration Moisturizer in the morning and it worked well under my makeup. I applied a light layer only on my cheeks which are drier in the morning, (but I used this all over in the evening before bed) .


After a few weeks of using it nightly, my skin was always smooth in the mornings with a great tone and glow.   Boscia Tsubaki Swirl Two-Part Gel & Cream Deep Hydration Moisturizerwill also be my go-to when my skin seems dehydrated after a long day out in the sun during the hottest summer months.  

As far as the packaging - well, it's so cool looking!   Boscia Tsubaki Swirl Two-Part Gel & Cream Deep Hydration Moisturizer will be a moisturizer that will become your favorite nightly go-to. - RLB

Note: You can either mix the entire jar together before using, or just scoop out a small amount each time and mix with the spatula in your hand, which is the way I liked to apply it.



Beauty Find - Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Dissolving Spray




Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Dissolving Spray 

There are times when you want your makeup to LAST, I mean really last all day/night long.

But often it's a pain to remove at the end of the night.  Now that I've found Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Dissolving Spray  I'll never struggle again.


I first gave Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Dissolving Spray a test run after applying a full face of either long wear and/or waterproof foundation/cheek color/eyeliner/mascara/lipcolor. After spraying it on a cotton pad and swiping my skin, I loved how easily it picked up all the makeup and left my skin clean, refreshed and hydrated with no greasy residue. 


The spray mist is very fine and weightless.  I only had to swipe an area ONE time to completely remove the makeup.  That included my lashes.  There was no rubbing or tugging or pulling on my skin whatsoever.  I also love that it only has three ingredients, including conditioning vitamin E. Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Dissolving Spray left my skin soft and smooth and not too dry or oily.  If you like, this can also serve as your facial cleanser, (it's that thorough), or this can be your first step in a two-step cleansing routine, which is how I used it most of the time.


Another plus is the scent!  It's so fresh and pretty. Since Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Dissolving Spray is meant for harder-to-remove makeup, if you are wearing standard makeup/mascara this will remove it in a blink of an eye.  This is a must have product for makeup artists looking to quickly remove a client's makeup and of course for all you waterproof mascara lovers! - RLB
