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?
