Mineralicious Grapefruit Scrub VS. Neutrogena® Pink Grapefruit Scrub
So this is my first review/comparison on a product and thought I'd share my experience with you all.

I used both products for a month straight if not a little more.

I received a sample of the Mineralicious Grapefruit Facial Scrub and loved it! The smell is wonderful and refreshing, its gentle enough to use on my sensitive skin, and you don't have to use much at all! Use very little and a little bit of water and emulsify and you get a wonderful lather. It is a combination of skin smoothing oils helps to moisturize and the addition of jojoba beads lends a gentle exfoliating hand. My skin is combination, and this one did not dry my face out at all or break my face out much, I was really impressed. Well when I used the sample all up, I needed some more facial wash so I went to my local Wal-Mart and purchased the Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub hoping that it was close to the Mineralicious brand.

Well, the smell of this one is OK, its not as refreshing as the Mineralicious brand. It's not as gentle either, the small beads in the Neutrogena brand are a little more harsh you can actually feel them. The fact that its a gel, I use more of the product at one time, and don't like that. Also this one has Salicylic Acid for acne, which usually doesn't break my face out, but for some reason this one did bad! Which due to the salicylic acid it dried my face out alot, and I had to purchase a stronger moisturizer.

I did repurchase the Mineralicious product and since then have been using it, and it cleared my face up aftering using the Neutrogena brand and have not had a break out from using the product except from when my monthly friend comes around *we all know how that one is* which still using the Mineralicious product it helps control it, and clears up fast afterwards.

Comparisons :
(M) = Mineralicious (N) = Neutragena
Price : (M)$6.50(US) 6.7oz (N)$7.19(US) 4.7oz *online price Store prices may differ

Smell : (M)5*s (N)2 1/2*s

Texture : (M)Creamy (N)Gel

Dryness : (M)None (N)Very Drying

Scrub : (M)Very Gentle (N)Slightly Harsh

Lather : (M)5*s (N)3*s

Alright this is all I have for right now, I'm stuck on what else to compare as its 3:30am, I'll add more if I come up with some more :) Also, I'm going to find a chart to make this easier to read but for now, this will work

Thanks for reading!

So I finally figured everything out! Thanks Christie!!

so now its time to start getting everything together to start posting for you all! And to get more followers and all that good stuff.

I hoping that I can keep up and remember to update this thing like I should. If you follow me on twitter or plurk you would know that I'm horrible at updating. But I'm hoping that this will help me with remembering to update all.



So I thought I had figured this thing all out, now I'm thinking I didn't. I can't get my blog titles to shows, comment option, and my blog posts are pushed too far to the right!

Ugh this thing is really starting to aggravate the crap out of me! So much that I'm about to give up completely and forget all about this. I've posted on the blogger help group and NO one there can help me either!! WTH?! There are millions of people out there that have blogs, along with tons of people who do know HTML and not a single person out there is able to help me? Just seems very messed up to me. As when anyone else, when they need help everyone is there to jump and help, and I'm one of those who jumps to help, but when I need help, there is NO one around or willing to help.

ok so enough for the rant, back to trying to figure this stupid thing out!

Think I finally figured this thing out! I've got the blogskin put in, now to get everything in place where I'd like it. It may take a lil bit to get it all figured out to put the way I want it. But I'm finally getting off to a start.

Hopefully I will remember to update this too, I'm so bad about not updating stuff.

Trying to figure this all out.

Hey everyone,

So this is my first time on blogger and I'm completley lost! I'm trying to figure out everything and I didn't want to post anything until I did figure it out. But I'm coming to find out, that I can't figure it out :(. I've been trying to figure it out for a couple of hours now, and I'm not getting anywhere.

I'm trying to upload this blog skin that I found, that is absolutely beautiful and goes with what I'm going to be writing about on here. But, every time I save it, it hides all of my info that I already have on here, ie my about me section and my followers.

If anyone could help me, that would be great! I know a little about HTML but not a whole lot, so these codes that are on here, are really confusing me :*(.

Hoping someone can help me out!

** Sorry if I sound like I'm repeating myself a million times, I'm really bad at writing out what I'm thinking or what I want to "say"
