Tarte Frxxxtion Stick Review

After a long day of wearing your makeup, do you ever have the feeling like your skin still isn’t that clean? Well I might have found the perfect solution for you! The Tarte Frixxxtion Stick. The makeup brand known as Tarte, also has a skin care line, and one of their many products is the Frxxxtion Stick, a travel friendly 3-in-1 cleanser. It is currently retailing for $22 and you get 1 oz/28 grams, and is rated 4.6 stars out of five on Sephora’s website, and 4.8 on Tarte’s.

The 3-in-1 cleansing stick, that twists up, is an exfoliant, cleaners, and a mask. This product is said to be the solution for oiliness (or just shininess in general), pores, as well as dull and uneven texture. The Frxxxtion Stick is vegan, hypoallergenic, as well as dermatologist tested. It is also formulated to not have any parabens or phthalates, and is made for all skin types.

The stick gently scrubs away the dead skin with “diatomaceous earth micro exfoliants” and has antioxidant algae that helps keep the skin looking revived and fresh by protecting and illuminating without it looking oily or greasy. You simply apply the formula on my massaging the stick directly on to your face.

Now I got to test this product and I absolutely fell in love with it! It is so travel friendly and productive. I have combination skin that is extremely sensitive skin with very little to no acne. Due to the fact that I have combination skin, I have some areas with dry patches and most exfoliators just dry me out more, but my oiliness gets worse if I don’t do some kind of exfoliant. I felt like this product successfully was able to get the dry and dead skin of my face without drying me out. The application is very easy and gentle, it tug or pull the skin and you honestly can’t feel the exfoliants till you actually massage it in.

I did have some cons about this product though, one big problem was the fact that it is a stick. My main problem with any kind of skin care or even makeup that is stick form is that they sometimes build of bacteria. Where as with a bottle, you constantly get new and fresh product out, you can’t do this with a stick. Due to you constantly using the same surface all over your face, it can kind of get nasty and grimey, and because of this build up, it may cause acne because you won’t truly be cleaning your skin after a while. Another con I had is I kind of feel as if this product goes extremely fast. One application use a bit of product and I don’t have $22 to throw in one product every few weeks.

Although I had a couple cons with this product, which is normally because no product is absolutely perfect, I still love it and plan to purchase it again, even with the price being slightly up there. I feel like this product did wonders for my skin and would 100% recommend this product.

Now this isn’t the only thing of The Crayon Case has come up with, they have multiple “school supplies” themed products. They have “colored pencils” that can be used as lip liners or eyeliners, as well as a brush set that looks like pencils. They also make an eye primer that is supposed to look like a bottle of Elmer’s glue. Although the brand has many school themed products, it’s not completely school themed. They have normal brushes, beauty blenders, a couple eyeshadow palettes, eyebrow gels, and more. You should definitely check out The Crayon Case’s website and see if you like anything.
