Proactiv 3-Step System Review

This post was sponsored by Proactiv as part of a Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

You guys may recall my beginning use of the Proactiv skincare program a few weeks ago — now I’m here to check in with some results!

I gotta say, I’m loving my results so far, particularly in the improvement in my skin texture. One issue with being a 30 (ech) year old with zits is that even though my skin problem is one common among young people, that doesn’t necessarily mean my skin looks young in all the positive ways.

Now, my skin texture is not only zit-free, but smoother and more even-looking. Just check out my “Before” picture, taken before starting Proactiv: Continue reading “Proactiv 3-Step System Review” »

Proactiv Review First Impressions

#Proactiv #ad #IC This post was sponsored by Proactiv as part of a Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

You know what’s exceptionally uncool? Being almost 30, and having zits. I think it’s a hormonal thing – once a month, my face goes haywire and my forehead, cheeks and chin become emblazoned with blemishes. SUPER hot. Seriously, wasn’t this supposed to have stopped back when I was a teenager? Continue reading “Proactiv Review First Impressions” »

Shiseido-Ibuki-Gel-Review-Giveaway

Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel Review + Giveaway

Combination skin like mine can be tough to care for; you want to treat your problem areas, but don’t want to risk stressing it out more and adding fuel to the fire.

As soon as I read the description for the new Ibuki Multi Solution Gel from Shiseido, I thought it just might be the solution for sensitive or combination skin that’s prone to both breakouts and dry patches. And Shiseido, founded in Japan in 1872, has 140 years-plus logged in beauty innovation, so they know a thing or two. Continue reading “Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel Review + Giveaway” »

Jillian Wright Skincare Breakout Blocker Acne Serum

Jillian Wright Breakout Blocker Clarifying Serum Review

Pimples. Remember them? Those awful new friends who started invading your face right around the time boys became cute? Some of us didn’t get to leave their torture behind with our impossible-to-remember locker combinations, and are still battling the little buggers daily.

I admit I probably get more pimples than I should, being almost 30. I’m reaching the dreaded simultaneous-wrinkles-and-pimples point of my life wherein everything about my face is either too young or too old. Goldilocks, look out!

Jillian Wright Skincare Breakout Blocker Acne Serum ReviewI’ve used a lot of serums before, but up to this point I’d never heard of one for treating breakouts. Therefore, Jillian Wright’s Breakout Blocker was of particular interest to me.

Products pumped full of medication can be drying and too harsh for my skin, especially out in the desert. Luckily, this serum is non-irritating, non-drying, and actually reduces redness rather than turning me into a strawberry like the rough stuff. And as I found out from Jillian Wright, when you have less redness, there is less trauma to the skin, hence minimizes premature aging.

Clearasil Acne Solution System

Clearasil Ultra Acne Solution System Review

Clearasil Acne Solution SystemDespite my being in my late twenties, I still have issues with acne. Hooray! Scanning the shelves for Emergency Four-Alarm Magic Acne Eliminator, I decided to try Clearasil Ultra Acne Solution System. The pack comes with a cleanser, toner, moisturizer and a free sample of their quick-start treatment cream. I began using it daily, at morning and night, and instantly fell in love.

The cleanser is a little grainy – I am guessing to act as an exfoliant – but it is gentle enough for daily use. It leaves your skin feeling clean, fresh and looking good. It works really well at removing all makeup including eye makeup, which some cleansers have a hard time doing. It is to be used every morning and every night.
