    Dying to try the Consonant Face Cream. I was given a bottle of their Face Wash as a gift when I bought some products a year ago and I’ve been using it ever since. It’s amazing – it’s this really rich foam that removes make up but isn’t drying at all. Love love love it!

      I’ve been really looking for a decent fase wash, and the Consonant looks really good, I keep hearing good things about it! My face is really sensitive and can’t take harsh chemicals. I don’t mind spending money if it’s going to help, but spending 60$ and if it doesn’t work, I am not a fan of! LOL.

      But the fact that you said it works and isn’t drying out face sells! LOL. You’ve definitely sold the product to me 🙂

    I use the Vichy lotion. I recommend this one, it works really good! I always have dry hands, and it makes them really smooth.

      How about in the summer? My hands are usually okay in the summer, but the winter it’s brutal! When does it work best? What about when it’s really cold out? I live in Toronto, so we can get -30 or so, and usually no cream works for that 😛
