[Review] Physicians Formula Wrinkle Corrector & Firming Cleanser

Have you ever tried a product you didn't like for a really stupid reason? This is one of those products for me. Frankly, it may be an awesome product. But I can't get around the fact that this cleanser just doesn't lather.

I use a Clarisonic daily, and I just hate that I can't tell if this is properly reaching my entire face. So, if we're being honest here - I have no idea if this stuff actually works. I bought it on a recommendation - I can't remember whose recommendation - and was confused as to whether I was actually getting my face clean.

Has anyone else ever used this? Does it work?

[Review] Vitabath Cupcake Couture Heavenly Coconut Creme Body Wash

I'm always on the search for my "holy grail" products - for skin, for hair, makeup, etc. I've been working my way through some body washes, and finished two recently. The one I'm going to write about here is the Vitabath Cupcake Couture Heavenly Coconut Creme Body Wash.

Creamy coconut clouds will set your heart a flutter with our Vitabath Cupcake Couture Heavenly Coconut Creme with coconut oil Body Wash.
Buy here.

This body wash is sulfate & paraben free, and contains coconut extract. And let me tell you - it lives up to its name in terms of scent. OH. MY. GOODNESS. It smells like heavenly coconut - rich and just sweet enough - I would love a candle that smells just like this!! It's not, however, a smell that lingers after you're out of the shower. For me personally, I like a slight lingering smell with my body wash - usually because I shower at night and head into bed, and I like having a very slight scent on me prior to jumping under the covers. This, however, doesn't linger. Which could be great, or not so great, depending on your preference.

The consistency of this body was was a creamy, opaque gel that is white in color and lathers beautifully. I always use a loofah/shower poof/whatever you wanna call it, and it lathers great. The bottle also lasts a really long time. 

Overall, my skin is normal, and I didn't find this to be super drying or super moisturizing. I don't know that I'll repurchase it because I love it, but perhaps only if I'm swayed again by the delicious smell....
