Can I tell you, my skin is so behaving lately. I can’t figure out if it’s the new skincare I’m using or if it’s the re-testing I’m doing with the Clarisonic Skin Brush. Whatever it is my skin is almost normal…UNHEARD of in the Winter months, wait come to think of it I don’t think my skin has ever been normal.
I got sick last week. Not badly sick but ill enough to have the sniffles, sore throat, a tiny bit of coughing, etc….I’m still sick today actually even after a ton of antibiotics. Whenever I get sick my skin suffers terribly. It dull, flaky, and just terribly gross. It’s kinda like having a bad hair day only it’s a bad skin week or two weeks or month, until I get better again. For two weeks now I’m sporting patching cheeks, a dry crusty looking nose (oh the grossness of it all), and I’m just dull looking as all heck.
These are the days I need an extra dose of moisture. Actually last year, in this cold weather, my skin would be positively gagging for some extra moisture.
Which is why my little eye is on Anastasia Hydrating Oil.
I’m still testing out the Etude House Collagen Moistfull Collection, little slow I know. It’s been kinda an uneventful ride so far in all honesty. I’m not really particularly glad or sad that I purchased the entire collection but as of late Etude House is kinda a small blip on my beauty radar as it’s been a while in between stunning collections.
Etude House Collagen Moistfull Essence-In Base is what today is all about so take the jump for the review.
So dudes….I’m so into the Skinfood Lettuce and Cucumber Collection at the moment. It’s totally taking over my skin life and making it so normal! It’s pretty much Winter here in my little city and the harsh New York air should be getting busy around this time making my cheeks patchy, my middle brow area flaky, and other fun dry skin havoc.
But I beat that!
So far I’ve tried two items from the Skin Food Lettuce and Cucumber line and it’s totally making my skin behave normal. No patchy dry skin, no flakes…this must be what it feels like to have normal skin!
I swear most bloggers (and perhaps readers too!) would look down their noses at me for reviewing skincare within a week or two of testing it out but that’s how the Muse rolls.
In all seriousness my skin is like a bulletproof vest. I can pretty much test out anything and not break out. I imagine if I took to slathering acid on my face I’d probably be quite alright. That’s just how my skin is. So of course I do declare that I can pretty much get a feel for a moisturizer within first use. I can make a snap decision on the spot if I love it or if I hate it after first use.
My experience with Skin Food Lettuce and Cucumber Water Drop Essence was a quickie I love you, I can’t live without you situation.
Gawd, you should see my shower. It’s kinda absurd at the moment with all the lotions and potions hanging out in there.
Speaking of product overload….last night I was in a deep sleep and around 3:30AM I hear this loud crazy crash. I thought someone was breaking into my house or something. I jerk out of bed and start looking around from room to room. Mind you I live in a large Victorian House so imagine me stumbling around from upstairs to downstairs and back again to figure out what the hell was going on. Turns out that the shelf I have in my bathroom which houses my rather large collection of shower gels broke. It was like a flood of bottles all over my bathroom…so here I am at near 4 in the morning on my hands and knees in the washroom, bleary eyed and completely unable to compute or comprehend what was going on, trying to clean up the mess!
Anyway….totally off topic there. I was just thinking about it as I typed up my review of the Clean & Clear Morning Burst In-Shower Facial I’ve been testing out this month!
