Dr Wu Basic Care Series Gentle Soothing Cleanser and Makeup Remover  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in ,

Whiee what a mouthful. This review is based on a sample sachet trial.

I'm on holiday now and am trying to use up some samples. After day 2 I couldn't be bothered with BB Cream anymore and head out without makeup.

I initially thought it was a cleansing oil and I rubbed it on dry face. I felt weird because the texture was runny and when rubbed on palm had slight lather... when I add more water it occurred to me that it is a foam cleanser *silly*

It felt light and rinses very well. Doesn't strip my skin dry and my skin feels fresh. Nice. But I don't think it would be a good makeup remover..

Burts Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

Burts Bees Says:
The original. The best. And still your favorite. Our must-have balms have been playing in purses and pockets since 1991. Beeswax conditions skin, while antioxidant Vitamin E moisturizes.

A final hint of Peppermint Oil provides that one-of-a-kind refreshing tingle. The result? Smooth, supple lips everyone will be buzzing about.

Foxy Frangipani Says :
It is very rare for me to actually finish a tube of lip balm. I'm very surprised when I find I could no longer twist the tube up! Look at the worn look of the tube lol.

This lip balm isn't like Carmex where the texture is too soft. This is firmer and won't melt. It has a soft smell and when applied on disappears in a few secs.

I like how this balm doesn't irritate my lips. No tingling or redness. But makes my lips feel plump and soft. No waxy layer; my lips feels like mine :) One application can last me a couple of hours too.

I wouldn't mind repurchasing this despite being slightly more expensive than the regular drugstore lip balms.
