E.L.F Zit Zapper ($1) Zap zits away with the unique blend of Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Oil, Witch Hazel and Camphor. This special clear formula helps to fight and prevent acne, reduce redness and swelling, minimize pore size and clear skin.
I was cruising up and down the aisles at Target when I spotted this bad boy. I had forgotten I always wanted to try the E.L.F Zit Zapper. I snatched it up and figured if it didn’t work, it was only $1. I also remembered reading on Lulu’s blog about how much she liked it and how well it worked for her.
The E.L.F Zit Zapper is a clear liquid that is packaged with a roller ball applicator. What I really like about the Zit Zapper is that it didn’t dry out or irritate my skin. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, and it has prevented breakouts along my hairline on my forehead. It has also decreased the amount of breakouts too. The change didn’t occur immediately and over night. It was a gradual improvement. I should say that the type of acne I used the Zit Zapper on were the tiny acne. The ones where your pores are clogged from oil and dirt. I know yuck! I don’t know if it will work on the cystic ones. I use it every night, and I have yet to make a dent in the amount of product. I have a feeling it will be lasting for a few months (even with daily use!).
I can’t get over the fact that it was only $1! I’ve used acne products that cost 10, 20, 30, even 50 times more, and they didn’t work as well as the Zit Zapper. Overall, I would recommend and repurchase the E.L.F Zit Zapper.
E.L.F Studio Small Angled Brush ($3) This new anti bacterial, synthetic haired Taklon brush is softer and more absorbent and can be used with wet or dry products. Be a professional makeup artist and create a flawless look with this e.l.f. studio brush!
-Creates precise color application
-Creates even, thin and straight lines every time
-Use to apply lip color, eyebrow color, or to line eyes
The E.L.F Studio Small Angled Brush is almost the perfect size. It’s easy to control and use. I use it to apply cream and gel liners, brow powder, wax, and gel, and as a lip brush to apply lipstick. The brush is thin enough to provide thin, precise lines. The bristles aren’t too flimsy where it’s difficult to control or too thick where it goes all over the place. My only complaint is the handle is too long. When you need to be perfect and precise with your lines, you want to be able to get up close to a mirror. The long handle prevents that. Other than that complaint, I say stock up the E.L.F Studio Small Angled Brush because you’ll find yourself reaching for it a lot.
E.L.F Daily Brush Cleaner ($3) An anti-bacterial daily brush cleanser for quick cleaning in-between makeup applications. Disinfects brushes to provide a fresh and clean application every time. Helps to keep your brushes lasting longer for extended use.
I own quite a few different brush cleaner and I didn’t find anything that made the E.L.F Daily Brush Cleaner standout among the collection I have besides the cheap price. It does a good job of doing a quick in-between-uses cleaning job. I noticed a fragrance when I sprayed the cleaner. Maybe a floral or fruity fragrance? I can’t quite figure it out yet. It’s not a super strong smell so I wasn’t put off by it. It doesn’t take very long for the cleaner to dry after spraying it onto the brushes so you don’t have to worry about the brushes being dry by the time you need it again. I like that it comes in spray bottle and I don’t have to worry about spilling.
E.L.F Studio Angled Foundation Brush ($3) This new anti bacterial, synthetic haired Taklon brush is softer and more absorbent and can be used with wet or dry products. Be a professional makeup artist and create a flawless look with this e.l.f. studio brush!
-Creates flawless coverage
-The angled shape allows you to apply product with precision in hard-to-reach places
-The brush applies foundation and other liquid products evenly across the face and within the creases of your features
The E.L.F Studio Angled Foundation Brush isn’t a very good foundation brush. The bristles are too stiff and thin to be able to spread and blend the foundation evenly. Also, it left streaks all over my face because the bristles would clump together when wet. I also didn’t like the angled bristles. I thought it would be useful, but it just made applying foundation difficult. Instead of throwing the brush away or letting it go to waste, I turned it into a contouring brush and it works great. You can even use it to apply clay masks to avoid getting your hands dirty.
E.L.F Studio Brush Shampoo ($3) An anti-bacterial brush cleanser for thorough cleaning in-between makeup applications. Disinfects brushes to provide a fresh and clean application every time. Washes away traces of dirt, makeup, oil and debris from your brush while conditioning the hair to provide a clean and soft application for every use.
I have got to buy the E.L.F Studio Brush Shampoo in bulk! I really like the E.L.F Studio Brush Shampoo. It leaves all my brushes feeling so soft and so clean. Plus, no fragrance! Just the fresh, clean smell. It’s not a very big bottle of brush shampoo, but it’s concentrated shampoo so I always dilute it when I use it. Since I dilute it and a little goes a long way, the bottle will last even longer. I’m pretty sure it’s not the best brush shampoo available, but it’s the best and cheapest brush shampoo I’ve used so far. I will continue to use it until I find a better one.
