Don’t you just love the name of her blog? Mommy’s Fabulous. I mean, what mommy ISN’T fabulous!?!? We are honored enough to be one of the sponsors of the upcoming, SOLD OUT, regional event “Girls Lunch Out” . As always – I like to send the event coordinators our products to try BEFORE I ship them swag. This is what Erica had to say:
Do You Have A Skin Care Regime?
Let me start this post by saying I have never had problem skin. I never had acne as a teenager, and even today, I am blessed with almost-wrinkle free skin.I know that I am lucky.
That being said, I am very aware my luck will one day run out.
After I had The Girl, my skin became problematic. I got rosacea,which was really a nice way of saying “adult acne.” I needed a system. I tried Proactiv, which worked, but left my skin very dry. I tried Clinique, which smelled lovely, but really didn’t do anything for me. Then I got pregnant with The Boy and, miraculously, my skin was glowing. No acne for me!
And now after having The Boy, my skin is still problem-free. But, I wanted some sort of regime. While my standby Cetaphil was great for taking off makeup, I wanted something that paid a little more attention to my 34-year-old face.My husband always jokes I have a 12 step process for my face before I go to sleep, but the reality is, I was all over the place. I had Mary Kay this, Clinique that, Bare Escentuals over here, and Philosophy over there.
Now, I know what you are thinking… “Who has time for a four-step skin care process twice a day?” Well, you should. Do you know why? Because you deserve it. I am telling you, when the kids are in bed, and it is time for me to get ready for sleep, washing my face and caring for my skin feels luxurious. And this kit from Therapon Skin Health makes it feel like I’ve just had a wonderful facial at the spa.
First, I cleanse with their cleansing wash that feels more like a lotion with a gentle foaming action. Then I use the fruit acid exfoliant with alpha hydroxy acid that really gets into my pores. Finally, I use the OPC reparative gel that’s packed with antioxidants.
Ladies, the steps are so worth it. After I apply the peptide hydrator, I feel like I have been to the spa – and if you know me in real life, you know I LOVE facials. This stuff? Smells awesome and feels even better. Plus, it’s the only real time of the day I get to focus on me, for me’s sake.
So I feel good about my new skincare regime. And, I am going to use it twice a day faithfully for one month. Hopefully by then, I’ll be happy to report my 34-year-old face looks and feels 24!
I am interested… what do you do for skin care? Do you have a regime or a process? Do you just use soap and water? Tell us what you love about your skincare products.
I received a complimentary Skin Renewal System from Therapon Skin Health -but wasn’t asked to review the product at all. I just happened to like it so much, I wanted to tell you all how wonderful it made my skin feel.
