Review Summary

The Jack Black Double-Duty Face Moisturizer with SPF 20 offers protection again UVA and UVB rays. It visibly improves skin's overall appearance and provides lasting moisture to any skin type. The Jack Black face moisturizer is very light and leaves the skin hydrated and non-greasy. This fragrance-free (faint scent) cream is formulated with certified organic ingredients, antioxidants, vitamins and pure plant extracts. This gluten-free, Paraben-free lotion applies and absorbs easily, and is great to use daily - in the morning after shaving for daily protection from sun; in the evening to hydrate and moisturize dry skin. The cream seems more effective when used with Jack Black facial wash, exfoliate and/or peeling pads.

However, the manufacturer's claim of the lotion being Paraben-free is misleading; the ingredients list consists of the same.

The Japonesque Go Curl Eyelash Curler, is made of plastic, yet very effective for perfect and long lasting lashes. The curler quickly gives deep sweeping lashes with just a little pressure, taking lesser time for those more natural looking lashes. This handy curler works well either with short stubby or thick straight lashes. It can get close to the lash line and open cage design is gentle enough to ensure it does not pinch the eyelid or outer eyelash. A soft rubber pad is tucked inside the curler, and an extra pad is stored at the bottom of the curler for more convenience. Free refill pads can be availed for the life of the curler by registering on the website. This easy to use curler works well with or without mascara, using with mascara gives it more long and lustrous look. This Japonesque curler is very compact, thus being easily portable and travel friendly.

However, the body is made of flimsy plastic quality; it is very vulnerable to wear and tear.
