My. face. hates. me. EXTRA PERIODS INCLUDED...
A brief history in [some currently undefined amount of] parts:
Up until about 4 years ago I had a cute little thing I'll refer to as: Life Without Stress. Where school, study for 5 minutes, flip hair, laugh, talk on phone, repeat. Then: lawschool = life with stress= AHHH pimple-pimple-pimple. (Also, hello punctuation nightmare.) All those years of having a perfectly clear face while using ORANGE colored drug store cleanser and then all of a sudden- face death. I needed a new skin care regimen pronto. Enter Proactiv.
Proactiv was all kinds of awesome at getting rid of blemishes but was also crack for face. Is made out of paint thinner, gasoline and Lucifer's saliva. It came with a sulfur mask (seriously-not joking) and is addictive. I did not want my face to look good at 25 and peel off when i was 40 so I stopped using it and started looking for something a little less harsh. Really what I wanted was something unmediated with natural ingredients. I reasoned that my face problem had been temporary and was under control. My face said, "Give me back my crack AHHH pimple-pimple-pimple."
Since then I have tried many cleansers/ing systems. Have tried: Bare Escentuals mineral cleanser stuff. Did not work. Smells funky. Smells even funkier as it gets old. Was gross. Have tried: Baby face stuff from Lush. Was weird and non wet. Needed washcloth (only have one). Did not work. Have tried: Mary Kay. Was lotion-y. Always forgot to order more until too late. Did not work.
However, I think I have finally found my savior. His name is BURT BEE. I can't believe I didn't call him sooner because I have been worshiping his lip balm since aforementioned Years Without Stress. I use: Citrus face scrub, tomato toner and deep pore scrub twice a week. Plus I treat blemishes with the blemish stick thing. So far, this is awesomeness and I even think my face is starting to forgive me.
