I remember when I was a teen, my hair and makeup had to be done before I started school. Well guess what that hasn’t changed, my daughter is all about the beauty goods this year. Just this summer she began wearing makeup and doing her hair. We were honored to try out some cool back to school products that will help her with her beauty routine.
The Dew Puff konjac sponge is the best way to wash and exfoliate your skin at night. This one simple skin care tool keeps your skin healthy, fresh and blemish-free! It removes that dull, flaky skin and brings new skin cells to the surface, restoring your skin’s natural PH balance. Simply get it wet, and use the Dew Puff on your face or body as you would a washcloth. Once wet, the Dew Puff gets SUPER soft, and is so gentle – you can even use it to wash a baby’s skin! Incorporate this into your evening bathing routine to remove the day’s oils, dirt, and grime.
My daughter’s favorite face cleaning product now! She loved how her skin felt after washing with the Dew Puff. It is so soft and gentle enough for any skin type. You can use with or without cleanser. There is only one ingredient which is Konjac Root, and that is elephant yam. It makes the sponge when hydrated soft and will gently exfoliate the skin. Also, the Dew Puffs can be sanitized by boiling for 2 minutes or microwaving wet for 1 minute.
There are three varieties:
- Orginal- use with own cleanser and for sensitive skin.
- Bamboo Charcoal- for oily and blemished skin
- Clay- cleans out impurities and supports aging skin.
We give Dew Puffs TWO THUMBS UP!!!

My daughter LOVES skin masks; I swear she does one every 2-3 days and her favorite is 7th Heaven (any kind). I also like the price $1.99 for single sachet which I can pick up at Walmart, Kmart, Bed Bath and Beyond and Kroger. She tried the Creamy Coconut Mask last weekend. We were super impressed on how soft her face was after she got done with the mask. The Creamy Coconut Mask provides the ultimate refreshment for thirsty skin.

My daughter has been using makeup this summer, and I’m on the fence with it because I don’t want her to grow up but I do know this is what teens do. I will give her the tools to help her look her best! Makeup that makes you look good is what you want, something natural looking that works for your skin tone and blends well. Even though my daughter wasn’t able to try this brand of makeup, I highly recommend FACE Atelier’s Ultra Skin.
Without FACEatelier: See all the spots, redness and just not a good look!
With FACEatelier: See how smooth my face looks.
Meet FACE Atelier’s Ultra Skin – the ultimate lightweight foundation! It’s silicone-based formula perfects the skin with a long-lasting satin finish with light to medium buildable coverage. The creamy, soufflé-like texture produces an airbrush-like result and is perfect if you want a foundation that can be applied like a moisturizer without compromising performance. No blender, brush or sponge needed. Easily apply with fingers! Ultra Skin’s 11 shades cover the lightest to richest complexions and are color-matched to award-winning Ultra Foundation. No primer needed!
I’m not a big makeup user, and this is PERFECT for me. I told my daughter I would buy her own in her skin tone soon- check out the skin tones they offer: HERE. She also likes how smoother my face looks when I put on the FACE Atelier’s Ultra Skin.
Makeup tools are also essential for my teen because she doesn’t need to be going out in public looking all blotchy. I need her to blend in her makeup and have a smooth look. Have you tried silicone sponges yet? Best invention for makeup! You can use this for all types of makeup like foundation, concealer, cream and liquid makeup. They are skin friendly and made with harmless materials. What I like is they are reusable and easy to clean. My daughter likes these sponges because they blend very well and are comfortable in her hand when she is doing her makeup. They also can absorb excess makeup on the face with the puff side.
Available on AMAZON for under $10 (a deal!!!)
Now, don’t they need something to put all these cool products in? Oh yes, they do, and Caboodles is still around. Of course, I had to get one for my teen. As the mom, I love that she has one container she uses, and makeup isn’t all around the room. She likes so she can go back and forth from her room, the bathroom, and living room. She is excited to do her makeup now for school! Oh, my.
