Found Beauty

Reviews By January 13, 2020 Tags: , , , , No Comments

Although it has been on the market for quite some time, I hadn’t yet tried Found, a beauty and skincare line that has grown a large fan base and introduces new products on a fairly continual basis. So I was pretty eager to check them out and see what they had to offer.

Found Beauty Hibiscus Cream Cleanser.

The primary focus of Found is bringing natural ingredients to skincare, hair care and cosmetics. Not all that different from several other lines on the market, but unlike others, they want accessibility and affordability for their customers. Found is sold on its own eponymous website, http://www.discoverfound.com but are also commercially available at select WalMart stores. I picked mine up off the website and will continue re-visit and re-purchase other items in the future to test out, the results of which will be comin’ at ya!!

I’m always on the lookout for new eyebrow products, because my brows don’t need enough “assistance” to require threading or tatooing ( which I fully support!) Their Shape & Define Brow Pencil ($9.99) is great if you already have great brows that maybe just need a little boost or more of a polished look. The built-in brush on the other end of the pencil is very handy for helping to shape things up when you’re done putting everything together. Again, not my favorite eyebrow pencil, but for the price and the job it does, I would definitely recommend giving it a try.

I really enjoy trying out new facial cleansers. Oils, creams, balms, bring ’em to me. But since I’m trying to clean things up a bit, Found was a good place to turn. I went for the Hibiscus Cream Facial Cleanser ($11.99 for 5.7 oz.), which is focused on hydration. Lucky me, being both an older woman and ongoing cancer patient, hydrating my skin, especially my face, is right up my alley. I certainly don’t use it everyday, as I frequently switch up my cleansers, but I really enjoyed this one. You don’t need a major water source, like most cream cleansers, but I usually take it off with one of my Halos (but that is a whole other story!), laced only with water and apparently, magic. It never strips my skin, smells great and takes my makeup off with ease. Long story short, I give the Hibiscus Cleanser two clean thumbs up!

My last purchase from Found Beauty was the Moor Mud Face Mask ($12.99 for 6 oz.). For all my experienced maskers out there I’ll say this: it’s a great mask. And it is thick. Like, thicc. Like thicker than the world-famous Aztec Mud Powder. And you do have to be diligent about taking it off. And for everyone else: this is not a peel-off mask, it’s a slap-it-on, rinse-it-off-when-its-dry kind of deal. But here’s the happy news; your skin feels uh-mazing once you take it off, like its sole purpose is to set your skin up for the rest of your skin care routine. If you haven’t tried it already, don’t let it pass you by!

So needless to say, it’s a given that overall I’d rate these products an A- – or a B++ on my A to D scale. They’re affordable, effective, and the packaging is downright awesome without being, “too much.” I’ll be back pretty soon to let you know about any new Found Beauty products I use!

Covergirl Cosmetics – now cruelty-free

Reviews By March 4, 2019 Tags: , , , No Comments

I don’t need to tell any of you what a classic brand Covergirl is – it was around before I was born, and was very consistent about producing new and innovative products. But most recently they took a step that (imho) is the smartest move they’ve ever made: they went cruelty-free. Although I’m not perfect, as no one is, knowing that a makeup brand is cruelty-free is pretty much an instant sell. And knowing that CG has been coming out with some great products lately – at least according to all my favorite beauty gurus – I was even more eager to go forth and explore what I will be able to enjoy from now on with a clear conscience.

Makeup Revolution Sport Fixing Spray

lifestyle & beauty, Reviews By March 27, 2018 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

Wouldn’t it just be great if you could get your makeup to last all day long, without having to touch it up? Admittedly, I don’t put as much effort into it as some do, but I would like to have my work preserved for more than a few hours. Thankfully there are plenty of makeup primers and setting sprays on the market that can do just that. I have tried a few of these sprays in the past, and there are some quality ones available. Recently I decided to try one from Makeup Revolution, a drugstore brand that is gaining popularity for it’s quality and affordability.Makeup Revolution Makeup Fixing Spray

Yes To Coconuts Makeup Removing Wipes

lifestyle & beauty, Reviews By February 19, 2018 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

So here’s the thing; I normally wouldn’t do a review on something as trivial as a makeup wipe – I mean, they’re quite literallyΒ everywhereΒ – but something happened when I recently purchased and tried these Yes to Coconuts wipes. I used them, and then as the evening wore on, I kept thinking about them. And formed an opinion. And then realized that I legitimately had something to say about them. And isn’t that (at least partially) what my blog is for? So this will be a short one, but bear with me, I have to get this off my chest.Yes to Coconuts Facial Wipes

Favorite Lip Colors for Fall

Favorites, lifestyle & beauty By October 16, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , No Comments

I did a recent clear out of my makeup stash and confirmed a pattern in my lip collection that I had already suspected; I have a thing for a good dark, vampy lip. And though dark lips are most associated with autumn and winter months, I will do my best to try to sneak one into my look any time of year. Although nude shades do run a close second, at heart I have always gravitated toward plummy, wine and berry shades, and I don’t think that will ever go away. So I thought I’d share some drugstore favorites from my collection, and a new shade I recently picked up. Because yes, I have a problem. I admit it.Favorite dark lip colors for fall
