Sample Saturday - Tarte FRXXXTION Stick Exfoliating Cleanser

Today's Sample Saturday features the new Tarte FRXXXTION Stick. I recently received this in a Sephora Play! box. It is a 3-in-1 exfoliator, cleanser, and face mask in a stick form. It is made to give a solution for oiliness, pores, and dull/uneven texture. The formula is vegan-friendly and draws out surface oil and reduces shine, while purifying pores for a deep clean.

New for spring is the Wet N Wild Photofocus Foundation that is made to look like your skin, only better. It is made with a matte, light-diffusing complex to give a nice even look. There is also a light-adjusting complex to help prevent white cast in photos. You can choose from 20 shades which is a good range for Wet N Wild to start with. It's great that it focuses on how it will look in photos, but I also was concerned about how it would wear throughout the day. Find out more about this below!
