Chris’ Angels: Beauty Products That Keep You Fresh?

in

Chris' Angels test out beauty products that claim to keep you fresh, but instead might leave you a little funky? Check them out:

Soladey Ionic Solar Toothbrush

Soladey-3 Ionic SOLAR Toothbrush, $19.99

Claim: A solar-powered toothbrush with no need for toothpaste. It works with any type of light source and is clinically proven to be more effective than other toothbrushes. It claims to reduces the risk of periodontal disease and bleeding gums and prevent new plaque and biofilm from forming

Taylor Kaye's verdict: Yuck, no thanks. If you have garlic as often as I do, this does not work. I had to bring a travel size mouthwash and chew gum whenever I could!

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water, $25

Claim: Micellar cleansers are big with makeup artists but new to North American consumers. It's oil suspended in water that attacts the oil and dirt. The idea is you'd use this product instead of soap and water. It's a no-rinse cleanser with a texture ideal for those with sensitive skin, sensitive eyes, and contact lens wearers. It claims to cleanse the face and eyes effectively in one simple step. Its soap-free formula features cleansing spheres that effectively capture and eliminate impurities and makeup. It also includes HydroSenn+, a natural ingredient proven to deliver immediate and long-lasting hydration more effectively than hyaluronic acid.

Cher Jones' verdict: This product did an awesome job removing makeup and cleansing my skin overall. But did I love it as a stand alone cleanser? Not really. While it did an excellent job cleansing, I still felt like I need a nice hot rag to wash my face properly to feel truly clean. It may just be in my head, but I don't know. I would definitely use this product as a part of my daily cleaning routine but I won't be giving up my rag anytime soon. 

Fresh Breasts

Fresh Breasts, $11.99

Claim: An intimate antiperspirant! This product applies as a soothing cream and dries as a cooling, silky non-talc powder. It's good for anti-chafing and prevents wetness. It's also talc-free, paraben-free, aluminum-free, hypoallergenic, and clinically tested.

Joanne Alderson's verdict: I only sweat under my boobs when I dont wear a bra and I move, but I never go braless during the day. What I would use this for is chafing on my inner thigs in the summer. Honestly, my thighs rub together when I walk.  In the summer when I wear skirts and dresses and my skin is exposed, I chafe something awful! Great alternative to powder as it leaves no white powdery mess. Pretty packaging, too.
