Hello everyone! I thought I'd give you the heads up if you live in Canada - basically Clarins at the Bay is on Gift with Purchase. This is absolutely perfect for me since I am out of a few things that I love. I will end up going to Burlington mall to get my products even though it's a bit of a drive since they have a Clarins aesthetician in and I have booked a facial for Saturday. I have been so stressed out and tired lately that this will be perfect for me.
I think I want the Early Wrinkle Preventers (Multi- Active) gift but have to make sure it isn't the formulation for dry skin or I will break out. If so, I will get the Age Fighters (Super Restorative) gift for my mom since she uses that line anyways. I'm looking forward to getting the full-size Gentle Refiner since I am out of my exfoliator and getting a sample of the UV Plus for the sun.
So instead of trying to keep up I sort of vanished for a while. I actually finished my project pan a while ago (and went over) and just never updated it to tell you guys. Hopefully I can keep up again because I missed you guys. I don't enjoy going MIA.
The 19th product I completed was my Biotherm Skin-Ergetic Non-Stop Anti-Fatigue Moisturizer. This was a great smelling day cream that definitely helped my skin to look more awake in the morning. It was a great anti-oxidant that uses fruit and vegetable fractions and smells like peach. I did however find that this product clogged my pores often so I was forced to used my exfoliator more often to avoid black heads. I will not re-purchase this product again.
The 20th product I completed was my Shiseido Pureness Pore Purifying Warming Scrub due to the fact that I had to exfoliate so often. I loved the warming sensation that I felt while using the scrub. I wish there were more granuals but overall it was a good product. I would definitely recommend this pore people with oily/ combination skins.
The 21st product I completed was my Neostrata Eye Contour Smoothing Cream. Although it didn't do anything for my puffiness or dark circles I felt it helped with my fine lines and yes, milia. It uses an ingredient called Gluconolactone that is a moisturizing exfoliant which is why I noticed the difference.I would not repurchase this product purely because I have puffiness and dark circles as well :)
The 22nd product I completed was the Maybelline Cream Matte Powder. I FLEW through this stuff. I've never had a powder finish on my so quickly. It definitely helped keep me matte through the say but I found that I had to be careful not to apply too much otherwise it would look very powdery. I would definitely repurchase this product when I finish some of my other powders.
And finally, the third product I finished was my Dr. Brandt's Pores No More Cleanser. The salicylic acid in this product was great in the morning if my skin had a few break-outs but it did nothing to remove make-up. I honestly think this could be replaced with a less expensive product that contains salicylic and therefore I will not be purchasing it.
What's your go-to salicylic based cleanser that is cost effective?
Hi everyone. I sort of back but will not be able to pay full attention to my blog. Since my absence I have finished my La Roche Posay Lipikar Syndet Cleansing Body Cream- Gel. This cleanser is great for extremely dry, irritated skin subject to itchiness. I had a few incidents with getting itching fits this past week so I had to use this cleansing gel. Although it's great for stopping itching, it's kinda boring because there is no scent (which makes sense). I really only use this when I need to.
Overall, I would definitely repurchase this product. It has always proven to be an excellent solution during my times of need. If you have extremely sensitive skin, or have an allergic reaction to something, I highly recommend you try this.
