Unique Skin Care Products for March
Most of you know by now, I’m obsessed with unique skin care products. I’m always looking for the latest and greatest cleansers, serums, and creams out there to add to my beauty arsenal to ward off the wrinkles, jowels, and crows feet that naturally occur over time. This month I had the opportunity to review out some really unique skin care products that are fairly new on the market and had never heard of before. But are they all just a bunch of hype?
I’m always looking for ways to save money. And one of the best ways to do this is by utilizing reusable products. So when I had the chance to try out this microfiber make up remover cloth complimentary for review from Tomoson, I was very interested. This cloth is supposed to be used as an alternative to traditional chemical make up removers. You don’t even need to use a cleanser to remove your make up!
According to the manufacturer this make up remover cloth:
- Removes all of your makeup with just water, 100%, NOTHING LEFT
- REMOVE EVERYTHING IN SECONDS — Removes mascara including waterproof mascara in seconds.
- MACHINE WASHABLE UP TO 1000 TIMES USE — Machine washable and no stains remain ; Get a better skin and save the environment
- CHEMICAL FREE — Chemical free finest soft & high water absorption cloth
Here are my thoughts:
I like the packaging. It comes in a nice plastic pouch with the logo on the front and the instructions printed on the back. When I removed it from the packaging I was surprised at how soft it was! It is super plush and feels just like a teddy bear.
You are supposed to immerse it in warm water before using. When I put it under the faucet, it actually takes a few minutes for the cloth to absorb the water. The microfiber almost repels it. It is kind of strange. But once you soak it, you are ready to go.
Using circular motions, just rub the wet cloth on your face. You don’t even need to wet your face first. Then the instructions tell you to flip the cloth over and use the side with the logo to exfoliate your skin. The only logo I saw was the tag, so I assumed that’s what they meant. But to be honest, I couldn’t really tell the difference between the cloth on either side. They felt exactly the same to me. I have created a little video to show you how easy it is to use this unique skin care product.
I had no trouble removing my makeup with this cloth. Even my mascara! It will come off on the cloth leaving makeup stains behind. Then you can just hang it up to dry. But you can just toss it in the washing machine and you are good to go for next time.
1. Saves money. You don’t have to buy expensive make up removers.
2. Reusable. You can use it over and over again.
3. Machine washable.
4. Safe and gentle to use for all skin types.
1. It will leave the cloth dirty. Unless you do laundry every day, you will have to use the make up stained cloth repeated times until laundry day.
2. Not certain it performs any better than an ordinary wash cloth would. But it certainly is much softer!
3. While this may seem silly, I don’t care for the color. Since you have to hang it up to dry, you will see it all the time. You might want to hang it in an inconspicuous spot in your bathroom.
Overall, I think it is a great value. Anything that saves money and works well is a winner in my book.

After removing your make up you’ll want to wash your face. But there are so many different facial cleansers on the market, it’s hard to decide what to pick. For me, I have aging skin but still suffer from hormonal breakouts so I am always looking cleansers that can provide what I like to call “Dual Action”. This cleanser from Glam Essentials sounded cool because it has Jojoba beads for exfoliation and Hyaluronic Acid for aging skin. So I applied for this promotion from Tomoson and received this cleanser free for review.
According to the manufacturer:
“You will know the difference from the time you squeeze the cleanser into your hand . You will notice the magic of the jojoba bead lifting the dirt from your pores and toxins from your face. You only need a small amount to achieve the best results. Unlike our competitors you do not need a quarter of the bottle for one application.
You will see noticeable results with your first application. Say “good bye” to dry skin that leave your skin looking dull and unattractive. This cleanser helps moisture stay locked while leaving dry skin out. The remarkable compound Hyaluronic Acid has also been added to combat the signs of aging while helping boost your collagen levels and pave the way for a younger and more vibrant you!
We’ve even added Niacinamide, which has been hailed as “Botox in a Bottle” by discerning doctors and dermatologists.”
Those are some pretty big claims! And they sound too good to be true, right? So let’s get into my honest product review:
The bottle is a good size. You get 6.7oz of product and you really only need a very small amount, so it should last quite a long time. The color is a creamy white and has practically no scent to it. I will admit while I don’t want anything overpowering, I like a little scent with my facial cleansers because I feel like it just brings a little more pleasure to the act of washing your face. But that is not a big deal since the most important factor is how well does it work?
The consistency is creamy but you can definitely feel the “grit” of the Jojoba Beads which is what you would expect from an exfoliator. The one difference between this and other exfoliators is that it is not super coarse or thick. What makes this a unique skin care product is that since the texture is very fine, you can use it as a daily cleanser as well. Dual action, Baby!
I have tried this product with a full face of make up and it definitely removed all my make up – even mascara. Even with the Jojoba Beads, it did not irritate my skin and left it squeaky clean with that hint of shine that you get from having super clean skin. Since you don’t need a separate exfoliator, it would be perfect in the winter when your skin tends to be drier. It has not caused me to break out, but because of the exfoliating properties and the combination of Hyaluronic Acid, those with sensitive skin might want to skip this product. For me, the product worked great. But since I am still using my current favorite facial cleanser (Charcoal Detox Cleanser from Michael Todd – one of my top 10 picks 2015) I will probably only use the Glam Essentials twice a week when my skin is on the flakier side.
