Washing your face is one of those activities you do daily, but don’t often put a lot of thought into. Lather, rinse, repeat. It’s a little monotonous.
There is a proper way to wash your face, but many of us get lazy and forget to give our face the time and effort it deserves. Using a facial brush is a good tool when you need to restore a little life to your skin.
Facial brushes are used to gently and effectively exfoliate your skin. They can be used dry or wet and most people find their skin feels instantly softer. Dry, flaky skin will be sloughed away and pores will be cleansed. [Keep Reading]
One of the things I love the most about this beauty blogging business is networking with skin care lines and getting sent free samples.
With the growth of the website – thanks to you lovely and loyal readers! – it seems that more and more companies are reaching out and asking us to sample their product. Obviously the “free” part is great, but what I really enjoy is hearing about and trying these new products.
Not too long ago I hit up my sister and had her try the Exposed Acne skin care line. She was dealing with some stress breakouts and wanted quick results.
She wasn’t exactly a fan of Exposed, so when Zenmed Acne line sent me some samples of their line she was hesitant. After a little convincing she decided to give it a try and give us her ZenMed review. After all, who doesn’t love free samples!
Zenmed offers several product lines and acne is just one of them. [Keep Reading]
Not too long ago I was lucky enough to receive a few samples from the American skin care company Rodan+Fields Dermatologists.
A rep, Melissa, had gotten in touch with me and had amazing things to say about their products. When asked for a review, of course I said yes!
To be honest, I’m usually pretty skeptical when someone spouts off so much awesomeness about a product. It’s wrong, but a dark part of me almost wishes the product were bad just to prove them wrong. Nothing is that great, right? [Keep Reading]
Don’t you just wish you could sit back, relax and let your skin fight the signs of aging for you? There’s a device for that!
The company Trophy Skin has developed a LED anti aging device that allows you to lie back, close your eyes, shed years off your skin…and all from the comfort of your very own home. [Keep Reading]
My mama loves herself some good anti-aging products.
No really, the woman gets facials, non-surgical facelifts and will try just about any new age-defying cream she can get her hands on.
My mother always had great skin and often received compliments from others because of it. She never had acne or wrinkles, save for a few laugh lines, and her skin remained taut right up until her 50s. [Keep Reading]
Personally, I like the look of laugh lines around the eye. To me, they represent years of happiness and the sort of wisdom one could only hope to attain. The catch? I don’t want to see them till I’m at least in my mid-30’s.
Don’t crucify me for saying mid-30’s. I’m in my mid-20’s and rather than being fearful of aging and my impending 30’s, it’s something I’m actually looking forward to.
Regardless of age, we all want to look younger than we are and yes, this affects me in my 20’s.
Too many hours spent unprotected in the sun, one too many nights on the town and even ridiculously early wake-ups (3AM was my wakeup call for 2 years – thank you, airline industry!) can all affect your appearance.
Unbeknownst to me, my lifestyle choices were starting to age my eyes – and not in the time-to-get-glasses kind of way. [Keep Reading]
I’ve been meaning to write this for a while now but I figured, hey, there is no better time to write my Exposed acne review than today while it’s snowing and miserable outside and I just want to hibernate.
So let’s get into it…
Exposed Skin Care has been around since 2002 and strives to produce the best acne treatment products. They have a total of 9 products available but for the purpose of my Exposed acne review, I’m only going to talk about the 4 products we tested. Who is ‘we’? You’ll find out in a minute… [Keep Reading]
Dry skin cells can get stuck in your pores, clog them and lead to icky acne breakouts and other skin issues. This is why V and I keep telling you how important it is to exfoliate.
Clearing your outermost layer of skin ultimately allows your moisturizer to be more effective and your freshest skin to be exposed.
Some people get scared at the idea of exfoliation because they think of it as an abrasive exercise; one that rubs the skin raw and leaves you red and irritated. Though this isn’t the case at all, there are even gentler alternatives, such as an at-home microdermabrasion treatment. [Keep Reading]
To defy age, do so as you would going into battle. You have to strategize, you have to prepare and then you have to attack.
You may think that comparing skincare to fighting battles is outrageous, but the age-defying process is a war and you want to win! T
he first step in doing so is finding yourself a great cleanser. A fresh, clean face lays the foundation for success.
Now that I’ve shared all my pseudo-Sun Tzu philosophies with you, it’s time to get to the point. I’m going to give you the basic breakdown of Borba Skincare Age Defying 4-in-1 Cleansing Treatment and let you know what I thought of it.
