Cool Products I’ve Been Testing For Review

Hi all!  Happy Saturday!

I’ve recently received some new or new to me products for my honest review and I have been having fun testing them out! I love reviewing products (I’ve been doing it for years now), so trying something different is always a good time!

 

makeupdrop hybrid
MakeupDrop Hybrid
From the creators of the original silicone makeup applicator comes the next generation of flawless application for skincare, foundation, blush, highlighter and concealer. The MakeupDrop™ Hybrid ($20 USD) is the newest innovation to revamp any makeup bag. The super soft, serenity colored applicator features two uniquely distinct parts: the Silicone Drop, which acts as a clean and waste-free surface for initial makeup application, and the Super Soft Sponge which helps blend and achieve an airbrushed glow.
While traditional beauty sponges soak up tons of extra product, the Hybrid—like all MakeupDrop™ products—minimizes product wasted by using the least amount of makeup possible. The silicone pad is naturally anti-bacterial and can stop the transfer of germs that can cause breakouts and irritation. The super soft- non-latex sponge is easy clean. Simply use soap and water and let dry overnight.
What I think:  I really love this sponge.  I’ve been using it for a few weeks now. The silicone drop is really good for first applying the foundation to the face.  The sponge blends it in.  The sponge is so uinque.  It doesn’t soak up any of the product, yet it is still fairly soft and bounces the foundation into my skin so nicely.  I also find that since the material is a bit firmer than normal sponges, it doesn’t break apart and is easy to clean.

Baby Foot Exfoliant
Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel

Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel Your feet regenerate new skin cells constantly, meaning there is a build-up of dead ones that need to be dealt with. Use Baby Foot’s Original Foot Peel ($25 USD) to remove unwanted dead skin from your feet. Slip the booties on for one hour while your skin absorbs its unique formula containing 16 types of natural extracts designed to exfoliate (there’s even a version for men, too). You’ll start to see your feet peeling within 3 to 7 days after your treatment, leaving your feet super smooth.

What I think:  This is such a neat product. It does just what it says.  I wore the booties for one hour and in about a week, dead skin started peeling off of my feet!  It takes at least a few days for all the peeling to stop, but when it does, my feet are so smooth and soft!  Perfect for dry winter feet!

salonpas pain relief patch large
Salonpas Pain Relief Patch LARGE

Salonpas Pain Relief Patch LARGE ($17.99 USD) — This is a new double size value pack that includes nine large patches.  “There is only one OTC topical pain reliever that is FDA-approved like prescription medicine, and that’s the Salonpas® Pain Relief Patch,” said John Incledon, President & CEO, Hisamitsu America. “We understand that many consumers suffer from back pain, as it is the most common area of pain.  As a response, we decided to launch the new Salonpas® Pain Relief Patch LARGE. They’re twice the size as before with the power to target large pain areas. We also included nine patches in this new product to provide a better value to our consumers. Since the patches are now double the size, there is a 35% savings on an equivalized patch basis.”

“Clinical trials demonstrated that the Salonpas® Pain Relief Patch works up to 12 hours on mild to tougher moderate pain,” said award-winning journalist Dr. Bob Arnot, M.D., internal medicine, who is the author of twelve books on nutrition and health, and previously Chief Medical Correspondent for NBC and CBS News. “As a 70-year old active athlete, I suffer from pain as a result of training and competing. I was a huge fan of the previous Salonpas Pain Relief Patch and it is great that it is now available as a double-size, larger patch which targets my back pain.”

What I think: My family is active (a cross-fitter, a rock climber and a lacrosse player) and there’s me, who needs to work out more!  Someone is always sore, so these are nice to help with the pain.  They are really easy to use, and really help with aches and pains.
