SkinCareRx: NUXE Gentle Exfoliating Gel + Freebies

Happy Friday!

So sorry I haven't written a post in a week! :/
These past few days have been extremely busy... but of course, I don't think I can ever fully bring myself to completely forget about you guys and my blog -- life may be super busy with school and hopefully work soon (*Fingers crossed!!!*), but Mimi isn't going anywhere! :)

For today, I just wanted to write my long-overdue review of this amazing exfoliating gel I got from SkinCareRx:

I will never get tired of receiving packages, haha! ;)

SkinCareRx and Apothica always package their shipments really well, so you don't have to worry about your order arriving all broken or something like that. Plus, their shipping is extremely fast!

The contents of my package:

- NUXE Gentle Exfoliating Gel
- CLEAROGEN Acne Lotion
 - REJUVE MD Eye Moisturizer

NUXE Gentle Exfoliating Gel is a skin smoothing gel with Rose Petals that gently resurfaces and refines the skin.
It removes dulling dead skin cells and leaves the skin at its most radiant.

Price: $26

This exfoliating gel has a rose petal scent -- I don't usually like rose scents, but this one smells good... it's not overpowering or overwhelming.

You are only supposed to use an exfoliating cleanser 2 to 3 times a week, so I make sure I follow that.
This exfoliating gel makes my skin feel clean, soft, and smooth. My skin becomes rosy each time I use it.

Not only that, but it also looks really pretty!
You can see the rose petals! I think it's really cool, I love it!

At $26, I think this is a really good buy.
It may be a bit pricey compared to other facial cleansers, but it's really important to spend a little more money on our skin.
This is totally worth it because it does its job really well and it lasted me quite a long time.

I am still definitely open to trying out other types of exfoliating cleansers, but for now, this is my go-to exfoliating gel. :)

Clearogen Acne Lotion and Rejuve MD Eye Moisturizer:


The Clearogen Acne Lotion smells good and it reminds me of something my Mom used to use when I was a little girl.
I asked her and she said it smells like her Clarins moisturizer.

I use two pumps for my whole face -- and let me tell you, it really does help with pimples.
A 1.8 fl.oz. one is sold for $32 -- again, quite pricey, but I think it's worth it.
I definitely want to buy a full-sized version.

The Rejuve MD Eye Moisturizer is a clear gel and has no scent -- it's pretty okay.
I guess I didn't really get the full experience with just this tiny tube. If you've used it, please definitely let us know what you think! :)

Have you ever tried any of these 3 products before?
Have you bought anything from SkinCareRx or Apothica before?

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!!! :)
