1. Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths (20 for $3): I’m straight up obsessed with these cloths! I’m not into wearing foundation everyday so they’re not a part of my daily routine, but when I have a performance or photoshoot, I always make sure to wipe my face down with these babies pre-shower to remove everything thoroughly. Rating: 5/5.
2. Exfoliating Scrub ($5): Personally, I prefer St. Ives’ apricot scrub, but this works pretty well, too. If you want something on the gentler side, I recommend trying this face wash out. You can technically use this product daily, but 2-3 times a week is ideal in my opinion. Tip: Remove your makeup and cleanse your face first! Rating: 4/5.
3. Hydrating Bubble Mask ($14): I read quite a few negative reviews about this product online so I was afraid to try it at first, but I actually really liked it. It was effective, easy to use, and super lightweight! Tip: a little goes a long way so don’t go too crazy. Apply a thin layer onto your face and watch it all bubble up (for 5-10 minutes or so) before washing it off. Your skin will feel really clean and soft afterwards. Rating: 4/5.
4. Eye Refresh ($3): For $3, I’m totally on board. I don’t know if there are any long term improvements yet, but this item feels hella good on my eye area – cooling sensations FTW. I love using it first thing in the morning. It helps with puffiness for sure! Tip: keep it in the fridge to up the cooling factor. Rating: 4/5.
Conclusion: Yes, to answer my question above, e.l.f. does get the job done. I don’t usually like to drop huge amounts of moolah on make-up, but I’m all about splurging on skincare. I have no problem dropping $50+ on a solid night cream. So, suffice it to say, I was skeptical when I first received my e.l.f. goodies in the mail. I gotta give them serious props though because the aforementioned products are pretty legit. If you guys are looking to try a new affordable skincare line give ’em a go. I, for one, am excited to try their night creams out next!
