BOURJOIS “Wake Me!” Shower Jelly Review

Hey guys.. I’m on vacation and been busy with that.. BUT I couldn’t resist any longer to review one of my summer catch (potentially the best? Let’s find out) : BOURJOIS shower gel!

Package backside/Bourjois shower gel collection

 

If you have been recently shopping in Saudi Arabia, you might have laid eyes on these attractive BOURJOIS sets with special offer which were available in most of the hypermarkets. Each package has two of the eight assorted shower gel bottles and let me tell you each of them looked appealing and fun, with really inviting tags: ‘Beautify me!‘, ‘Tease me!‘. ‘Pamper me!‘, ‘Wake me!‘, ‘Refresh me!‘, ‘Deluxe mousse‘, ‘Dream scrub‘ and ‘Sweet summer‘. And like a cherry on top, every bottle has a cute golden orb on top.

If I could I would have bought all of these – I had a real hard time choosing one set. So after a lengthy mental analysis I picked a set that had ‘Wake me!‘ and ‘Sweet summer‘.

But since there was baggage space restriction, I brought Wake me! out of the two, along with me to Pakistan. First let me give you the details of the product:

  • is a vitamin enriched shower JELLY (not just an ordinary gel)
  • infused with Citrus fruit and Goji berries fragrance
  • is supposed to make your skin feel radiant and energized
  • paraben-free


My Experience
:

Really really REALLY good! Unlike other shower gels, this jelly would not foam up straight away at the instance you start massaging but rather lets you enjoy the silky pulpy lather gliding onto your skin before it dissolves into a gentle foam. You may think this would make it difficult to rinse off.. but fortunately, you would be wrong.

Loved the citrusy sweet scent which you can smell as soon as the lid is flipped open. And the amazing thing about this shower jelly I discovered is that the scent lingers on your skin for 6+ hours! That sure does uplifts and revives the exhausted ‘you’ in this hot weather. The other amazing thing is of course it being paraben-free: a HEALTH-friendly shower gel.

I haven’t tried Sweet summer yet which is the shower oil, but I bet it would be another bottle full of goodness. I’ll update this section once I get to try it.

So I believe these BOURJOIS shower gel collection would not only become  flirty accessory for a bathroom but also make shower-times more tempting!

Clearasil Ultra Daily Face Wash – Does it Do as it Says?

GroomAndBloom

If your skin type is normal to oily, and if your skin is prone to acne and blemishes.. then Clearasil Ultra Daily Face Wash should definitely make some space on your top-shelf.

Believe me, I understand your pain as I’m the victim of the same problem and I know how tough it is to delimit further breakouts. But with a good diet, lifestyle and a good skin-care product, it is NOT impossible.
I always go for a facewash that has Salicylic Acid as one of its ingredients because it kills bacteria and thus treats and prevents many skin-related problems like acne. And that is what caught my attention before purchasing Clearasil Ultra Daily Face Wash apart from its glossy packaging.

Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh – A friend for your dryness distress!

Heat is still on the roll but that doesn’t mean your skin doesn’t require moisturization at all during summers. Specially after taking bath, your skin needs to be restored with essential moisture that has been stripped away by shower gels, soaps and scrubs. Or else dryness and itchiness can get so bad that it would almost feel like tiny bugs nipping you all over! And don’t forget about those rough cracked heels too which can be bothersome with every slightest touch of any fabric on them.. Ughh!!!

https://groomandbloom.wordpress.com/

To be honest, I haven’t been much happy with most of the moisturizers I have used until I bought Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh. It is AWESOME. Other moisturizers feel weighted and sticky on my skin.. I SO hate that! So eventually I feel compelled to wash it off. Even some of those which claim to be light on skin, are not so light on my feet as they soon remind me I have applied ‘something greasy’ that will be there forever and annoy me until I wash it off.

But Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh is true to its words. It’s so light that it immediately gets absorbed after rubbing onto skin and Voila! “Did I even apply anything there” I wonder. Ofcourse, the main purpose of providing hydration and nourishment to skin is also observed as skin feels silky, soft and supple. Their innovative Stratys-3 complex infusion permeates and disperses hydration throughout all the layers of skin.

Vaseline

Now, the reason I picked Aloe Fresh out of the range is cz anything with Aloe extract or Aloe Vera itself is great for skin. Aloe heals, soothes and nourishes many problematic skin conditions like eczema. It treats sunburns and is a great moisturizer. I have been happily using it even as a base on my face sometime when the weather is too dry to avoid dry patches build-up. And Yes! Thankgod, I can even use it for my dry heels without it feeling greasy. Who needs a separate foot cream when your body moisturizer does the work?

Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh certainly is my friend and will be throughout the year. What about you? Which moisturizer do YOU find non-greasy?

Clearasil Ultra Daily Face Wash – Does it Do as it Says?

If your skin type is normal to oily, and if your skin is prone to acne and blemishes.. then Clearasil Ultra Daily Face Wash should definitely make some space on your top-shelf.

I always go for a facewash that has Salicylic Acid as one of its ingredients because it kills bacteria and thus treats and prevents many skin-related problems like acne. And that is what caught my attention before purchasing Clearasil Ultra Daily Face Wash apart from its glossy packaging.

Unlike many oil-control blemish-fighting face washes, this one did not strip essential moisture off my face which makes it best for the daily use without going harsh on my skin. The consistency is of a foamy cream and a small pea-size dollop is enough for one use.
As claimed, it definitely did make my skin feel fresh and revived, and also immediately after rinsing, it left a slight tingling sensation on my face (the soothing COOL tingling) so I’m guessing that’s the part where they said “Works fast to open blocked pores” does the job. Can’t really say if the part “Visibly clearer skin in as little as 12 hours” worked for me but my skin definitely does not feel sticky or oily for hours after use.

This 150 ml tube costed me SR 26.50 which is bit expensive but not as much as few other brands containing Salicylic Acid and if your consumption is like me (pea-size dollop per use) then a tube will easily last you for 3 months!

Overall, I’m very content with this product and it has my recommendation! But I would also like to hear your experience if you tried it. =)
