Tag…You’re it! 40 Beauty Questions

A few people suggested I start doing youtube videos. But I’m way too shy at the moment…maybe one day, you never know 😛 

On that note, I do have a few favorite youtubers. Scandalousbeauty is one of them… she did a 40 beauty question tag recently. I thought it was a great idea, so I would like to share my answers to those questions.

  1. I used to use the same one you did (cleanser) but i switched to Juice Beauty Exfoliation Cleanser and its my FAVORITE now! it is soap free which i LOVE because soap will usually dry my skin out and during the winter months this is not good! I really think you should try it! Plus its organic 🙂

  2. I’ve tried a couple of eye creams and i don’t think any of them really work because i didn’t see any change. Does the Kiehl product really work?

  3. @Yetsa…Still trying to get used to Twitter, but I am working on it, lol.

    @Tina…Thanks, I tried the Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk, but it didn’t really work for me. I will check out the Exfoliation Cleanser and see how it works. I do love their blemish clearing serum and I like the oil free moisturizer. I am working on using all organic skincare, but it is proving harder than I thought, b/c the products that work for me are not all organic.

    @Deb…We were on the same boat. I tried quite a few eye creams as well, but couldn’t find one that didn’t irritate my eyes. I do like the Kiehl’s eye cream, but I can’t vouch it will work for everyone. I would recommend you get a sample, try it out for a few weeks and see if it works for you. There is a Kiehl’s counter at Hudson Belk. Check them out!

  4. I agree with Tina. The Juice Beauty Exfoliating Cleanser really works for me. You guys should also try their Green Apple peels, they are amazing!
