WEI To Go Real Clean Gelled Oil Cleanser Review

WEI -To -Go- Real- Clean- Gelled -Oil -CleanserWhenever I’m traveling, one thing I can count on without fail is the appearance of breakouts.  My skin tends to get clogged and congested on the plane and by the time I land I can feel the bumps start to emerge.  In an effort to be preventative I’ve started to use facial wipes on the plane, but a lot of times these are drying on my face and exacerbates the problem.

I finally came to the conclusion that I needed a cleanser that was both gentle and moisturizing on my skin while still being capable to remove dirt, makeup and any other skin congestant found on a plane.  On my last flight I cleansed my face with WEI To Go Real Clean Gelled Oil Cleanser.  The cleanser comes in extremely airplane friendly 10ml tubes, is super easy to use and has a very refreshing lemony scent.  Read more

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Face Cleanser Review

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Face Cleanser ($29) is a gentle cleanser made with my personal favorite ingredient, glycolic acid. If you’ve never used glycolic acid, let me tell you it’s fabulous for aging as well as acne prone skin. It helps wrinkles AND pimples, how cool is that?

Glycolic acid is the most active and beneficial of the Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids (AHA) used in skin care and is derived from sugar cane.  *It stimulates the collagen and elastin fibers in the dermis, improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other forms of sun damage. **Due to this unique mechanism of action, glycolic acid has also been found to be beneficial for the management of conditions involving hyperkeratinization, i.e., psoriasis, ichthyosis, acne, dry skin, etc. Anyone suffering from these skin disorders would benefit greatly from the use of glycolic acid. It’s a fundamental part of a skin care maintenance program that will keep your skin healthy throughout the years.  Read more
