Not sure if it’s because I’m in my mid-20’s now…but my skin has been fluctuating between dry and oily, something that hasn’t happened before. I’ve been looking for some new skincare heroes that doesn’t cost an arm or a leg (or the price of 10 mochas.) I was sent the Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Mask, and there is no better time than now for a product like this. The first time I used Vichy was eight years ago! My mom had purchased some products before our Euro-trip and it was the first time I had to think about cleansing my skin apart from using water. Between then and now, I haven’t used any Vichy products since then.
Neutrogena is considered as the #1 Dermatologist recommended brand; and surprisingly, I actually never used any of their skincare products (apart from makeup remover.) Little old me right went from zero skincare products to $30-$40 range skincare when I started to realize I couldn’t just use water on my face forever. I received four products from Neutrogena to try out; these products focus on acne killing and I got excited cause….time to destroy the back acne!!
I was in Hong Kong during the end of December; things have definitely gotten a bit pricier from what I remember and I know I have gotten a bit more…frugal. I stayed away from purchasing colour cosmetics, but I did haul on a lot of masks. Gotta maintain that youthful, moisturized look as I get older again…this year.
Clean and Clear wanted us to share a story of an insecurity we had and how we came to feel comfortable in our own skin. I can probably say the #1 insecurity I’ve probably had is feeling the dreaded low self-esteem that I’m sure every teenager to relate. I thought I was not pretty enough to wear a dress, my eyes were too small for makeup, and my grades weren’t good enough for a challenging career. Coming from an all girl’s private high school, everything was a competition.
How many times have we spent a hefty amount of cash on a product that doesn’t do what it claims?! Canadian brand Indeed Labs is here to bare all with simplistic yet attractive packaging and some impressive skincare technology. All products are paraben free, fragrance free, colourant free, sulfate free, and not tested on animals. High five to this beauty brand from my home country!
