Face & Lip Love


I've been using Purity Made Simple with my new Clarisonic Mia 2 and absolutely LOVE it. My face has had some issues the past couple years since I quit taking birth control. As soon as I quit my hormones just went wild and pimples started popping up everywhere. At first I thought I was allergic to something but after talking with my doctor about it discovered that this is just the way my skin naturally is *sigh*. Needless to say I immediately started trying products. Proactive and every other acne medicine you can find in the supermarket were each tried without any long-term promising results. I even got the Dermanew Acne System -that did a good job of buffing off dry skin but actually made the breakouts even worse. For Christmas I was given my Clarisonic Mia 2 with a little bottle of Purity and after the first use I noticed an incredible difference. It felt like the two products just belonged together, a match made in facial magic heaven, if you will. The Mia does a great job of scrubbing away dry skin, makeup, dirt, etc. When paired with purity (which isn't harsh and gets rid of oil and daily buildup) its like your faces dream come true! Purity smells great and leaves your skin feeling refreshed, clean and new! I just bought the largest bottle of this stuff I could find for when my sample bottle runs out, it has changed my face entirely!

I decided I'd try one of these since I've heard nothing but great things about it, but honestly I wasn't that impressed. I thought this was a new revolution in chapstick or something from all the rave reviews it's gotten but honestly it's very similar to Softlips. The greasy-ish texture is similar and I got the peppermint flavor which instantly reminded me of the Softlips original, which is a minted cherry flavor. I understand the product is for long term use to get desired results within four weeks, but that just seems a little cuckoo to me! All I want is for my lips to be soft and to not be chapped. Honestly, Softlips delivers the same exact thing and doesn't mention a wait time to see results. Overall, Baby Lips tastes good and feels good, but isn't anything super special that I would consider purchasing over any other chapstick in stores, plus it's a bit more expensive.

There you have it! Let me know if you've tried either and what you think!


  1. I agree about the Baby Lips product. I bought it recently and ditched it quick. I am also the kind of person that likes to feel a difference right away. Thanks for the review though!! BTW- I awarded you with the Versatile Blogger Award- check out my blog for details. =-)
