“Fergie’s” Wet N Wild High-Octane Nail Polish Collection Review

I’ve never been very fond of “Fergie”or the “Black Eyed Peas” for that matter. But I am totally digging Fergie’s, NEW Wet N Wild, high- Octane, Nail Polish Collection. Wet N Wild has always been a cool and hip make up brand that’s been around for a really long time making it easy for people on a budget to acquire cool make up. Wet N Wild has always had a great assortment of eye liners/pencils, nails polishes, lipsticks & eye shadows. They also, have a few powder compacts and blushes but I wouldn’t go as far as recommending these. However the other products I mentioned above are just about average in quality and the assortment is fantastic.

Now with Fergie’s new, high octane, nail polish collection you have even more to choose from and though these are a little more expensive than regular Wet N Wild nail polishes, they’re still affordable as they cost under $4.00. Fergie’s new line of makeup for Wet N Wild has other makeup products up on shelves as well, but the nail polishes are what I’m really enjoying. All the Fergie Wet N Wild nail polishes are neon shades, bold shades or fun and edgy glittery nail polishes. The nail polishes are all named after Fergie songs such as ” Glamorous” and many more. These nail polishes are totally rad to say the least. They’re certainly not designed for neutral nail polish lovers because these are certainly unique and daring.

As of now I’ve tried two of them, “Hollywood Walk of Fame” which is just awesome if you like stars. “Hollywood Walk of Fame” is basically a clear gloss with a bunch of different colored stars in it that stick to your nails. I really like this one because it gives you the chance to experiment with your nails and be diverse as you can wear this nail polish all alone put it on top of any other color adding gloss and stars to your initial, base color.

Sally Hansen Nail Polishes Metallic & Pastels Colors

The second one I’ve tried is called “Dutchess,” which is also very cool. This one is basically gloss with blue glitter and a dash of semi thicker, purple glitter. When you put on your nails, the first thing you notice is the nice glossy, blue glitter- but when you take a closer look you’ll see that it’s purposely sprinkled with the thicker purple glitter. It makes it seem like you had to go through several steps to get this accomplished, but it’s not. You just paint your nails like you normally would and the special effect will manifest as it was designed to do.

If you’re tired of the typical, neutral nail polish colors you will just love experimenting with “Fergie’s” Wet N Wild High-Octane Nail Polish Collection. You can purchase these online or at any CVS or Walgreens near you.

NEW Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions Reviving Cleanser Review

Just when I thought I was done with Clean & Clear products for good, not because they were bad, but I didn’t feel they were age appropriate for me anymore, Clean & Clear comes out with a new collection of facial cleansers: Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions.  I had already chosen a LOREAL face wash to buy but as I walked further down the aisle I was caught by the eye catching, new Clean & Clear facial cleansers. I just had to look through them; the vibrant colored bottles are truly hard to ignore. I immediately went for the red bottle because it’s my favorite color and much to my surprise one of its main ingredients was “Pomegranate” which is a well known antioxidant. I read through the label, looked at the price and sure enough, LOREAL’s facial cleanser was back on the shelf.

The cost was not that big of a difference. I was going to purchase the LOREAL’s Youth Code facial cleanser for $7.99 and the Clean & Clear was $7.49 but Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions just had much more to offer and I just had to give it a try and it’s oil free which is always a plus.

The NEW Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions Reviving Cleanser was designed to give you a “morning burst” which is clearly stated on the bottle in big letters that you can’t miss. Moreover, it’s suppose to revive tired looking skin. It contains real fruit extracts such as- Pomegranate, Passion Fruit, Acai and Strawberry seeds. They’re all natural vitamin sources and antioxidants that are suppose to cleanse your skin off impurities. Therefore, giving your skin a nice, fresh glow.

I’ve only been using the NEW Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions Reviving Cleanser for a week, but I must say that in the mornings it does have somewhat of a subtle “morning burst.” It must be the fruity aroma. The smell is rich and delicious, that is if you enjoy “fruity” scents. After you massage the cleanser onto your face and massage thoroughly you then rinse it out and your face feels just awesome. You can feel a tiny tingle.

I’m completely in love with it in many levels. The natural ingredients are the perfect recipe for a healthy cleanser for your skin. The aroma is divine and the price suits my budget. I recommend it 100 percent. I no longer feel that Clean & Clear only makes products for teenagers and 20 year olds. The new Clean & Clear Morning Burst Fruit Infusions Reviving Cleanser proved to be perfectly appropriate for my age and skin.

They have three different kinds, the one I’ve tried mostly consists of pomegranate. But there’s one that it’s main ingredient is pineapple and the last one’s main ingredient is mandarin. As you can see you have three to choose from. If you’re considering giving this facial cleanser a try, read through all three selections and then decide which one is best suited for you and your skin. They’re all oil free and infused with real fruit extracts.

It works just like a cold cream but it’s a gel and it’s gel formula makes this face cream just that much more refreshing and light.

You just feel the coolness of the gel-cream. Moreover, this cream gel penetrates deeply for long lasting moisture, which in turn boosts your skin’s defenses. It holds up for up to 24 hours.

Using this product is fairly simple. All you have to do is apply the cream gel every morning and very night unto to your face, preferably after washing your face. It works well on all kinds of skins since it’s light enough for sensitive skin, it’s oil free so it’s perfect for women with oily faces and it blocks out dryness.

L’OREAL’s Collagen Moisture Filler Daily Moisturizer Day Lotion Review

When I reached my mid 20′s I decided that it was essential for a woman to always have a half decent face wash and face moisturizer. Since then, I’ve tried many facial washes and moisturizers. I believe that alternating after a month or so is the best thing to do as your skin builds immunity. During my mid 20′s I was fascinated by Clean and Clear products. I probably tried every product they possibly had and any new one that would come along. Now, it’s safe to say, that I am done with Clean & Clear and have found a new love for facial washes, face cold creams and lotions by L’OREAL.

The latest one that I purchased is L’OREAL’s Collagen Moisture Filler Daily Moisturizer Day Lotion. By the title you can assume there’s a night version for this lotion. This is not a lotion that I would recommend to someone in their early 20′s or teens. This is more for women in their late twenty’s and early to mid 30′. As the title indicates it contains collagen which is suppose to make you appear younger.

While it’s not a miracle lotion, it’s pretty great. If you use it as advised which is twice a day, by the end of the week, you’ll notice that your face seems smoother and with a slight glow. Tiny lines may seem to start diminishing. However, don’t think it works like collagen injections either, you will look exactly like yourself, but with a fresh, younger looking complexion.

L’OREAL’s Collagen Moisture Filler Daily Moisturizer Day Lotion Advantages:

  • 1. SPF 15.
  • 2. You can wear it beneath make up.
  •  3. Your skin will appear radiant.
  • 4. Improves complexion.
  • 5. Tine lines begin to vanish.
  • 6. Moisturizes skin without leaving it oily.
  • 7. The collagen in the lotion helps fill in lines with time.
  • 8. It’s affordable. You can purchase a 2.0 FL.OZ. for just about $10.00
  • 9. It smells very nice.
  • 10. Works well for women with sensitive skin.

As you can see L’OREAL’s Collagen Moisture Filler Daily Moisturizer Day Lotion is a little bottle of lotion joy. It has a little pump that makes it easy to squeeze into the palm of your hands without going over board. The results are great and best of all they’re apparent. If you’re looking for a new skin moisturizing lotion with a few extra perks- us here at Just Women Blog recommend, L’OREAL’s Collagen Moisture Filler Daily Moisturizer Day Lotion.
