Review: Chanel Blending Foundation Brush #7

Every since I got hired as a Beauty Advisor about a month ago, I have had my eyes set on this duo fiber brush. Since my trusty finishing kabuki brush by Eco Tools got destroyed I needed a similar brush to give me a great foundation application.

The brush itself is very light, almost weightless.

It comes in a pretty dusting case.

Review: Boots Expert Sensitive Gentle Cleansing Face Wash

Upon graduating an Aveda concept beauty school I had a lot of products in my kit left over to take home with me. So that's pretty much the only brand I have been using on my face besides different makeup products. A few months ago I ran out of my Aveda Botanical Kinetics Creme Cleanser and wanted to try something different and more affordable.

While shopping at Target I remembered my mom used a cleanser and moisturizer by Boots, and thought why not give it a try. It only cost me $4.69!

Product Info:
Sensitive skin needs extra care when being cleansed. This hypoallergenic foaming wash is specially formulated to be less drying. With soothing aloe vera and mineral water it leaves skin cleansed and refreshed.

Fragrance-free. Lanolin-free. Dermatologically tested.

+Leaves skin feeling clean and soft
+Very gentle
+Has a little to no smell
+Dispenses a light foam(a very small amount goes a long way)

The only con for me is that it can be a bit stripping, if you use too much of it. I'm a normal to dry skin type, but much oilier in the summer months. All you need is about 1/4th of a pump. Make sure to follow up with a good moisturizer.

All in all, I'd say it's a good cleanser, and even better for the price.

Ingredients: Aqua/Water/Eau (Water), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Glycerin, Sodium Citrate, PEG 120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Phenoxyethanol, Aqua Mineralis (Mineral Water), Methylparaben, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Propylene Glycol, Tetrasodium EDTA, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) Extract
