Quick Beauty Reviews: benefit, Boscia, PÜR & Kate Somerville

Beauty Reviews: benefit, boscia, Kate Somerville & PÜR
I've accumulated such a pile of beauty products that I decided all this week I would do some reviews for ya. Get excited folks! First up, is just a miscellaneous grouping of products that I've been meaning to get to. So let's get started, shall we?

boscia Black Charcoal Cleansing Cloths $15 - I'm sure you've read reviews by this point but tossing my 2 cents in. I wouldn't necessarily add it to the Don't Believe the Hype list nor to my least favorite beauty product round-up every month but I definitely think you should save your coins. I also think wipes are wasteful (unless they're biodegradable like Pacifica's). It gives a good clean but not worth the price. Definitely enjoy a toner instead.

Warning: close-ups of my zits ahead....
It's getting real ya'll

Kate Somerville EradiKate™ Acne Treatment $24 - I got a sample of their to-go viles of this acne spot treatment. "EradiKate® acne in a snap with Kate’s #1 best-selling blemish-banisher… now packaged in individually-wrapped, pre-treated swabs to take on-the-go! Our powerful pink treatment is formulated with 10% Sulfur—the highest level allowed to effectively fight acne—to help clear skin of blemishes and acne-causing bacteria. It also contains AHAs to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and help control sebum production. This acne treatment also prevents future breakouts, resulting in a clearer complexion." You may have seen my trying this out on Snapchat. It has a VERY strong odor... like it could knock you out. It packs a punch. I liked the packaging. It's an easy to hold Q-tip style that you can directly apply to the area. Unfortunately, I saw no results after using two samples.

benefit lollibalm $18 - I got this as an add-on to my Birchbox order. This orchid colored lip balm "conditions and hydrates with mango butter and sodium hyaluronate. This kiss of sheer color gives you the flirtiest lips." I liked the formula but not the color. Not sure who this lavender color looks good on.

Wearing the mascara & lollibalm
PÜR Fully Charged Mascara $22 - This mascara "has a magnetic polymer matrix that wraps a positively charged elastic veil around each lash to instantly lift, separate and define each lash for long-lasting performance." All I could think of was "MAGNETS BITCH!" from Breaking Bad lol. Not sure why a mascara needs magnets but it definitely gave me great volume to my lashes. But it promises to nourish lashes and I didn't find that to be entirely true as my lashes felt dry by the end of the day. I'm going to pair it over another mascara I'm loving (stay tuned!) to see if it helps. But if you want to give this mascara a try for yourself, PÜR is offering 20% off at purcosmetics.com with code HELLOLASH through April 15th!

Have you tried any of these products? What were your thoughts?
