Facial Products

I never really got into face/skin products until I started working with Saks. The girls in cosmetics are consistently hawking some product and telling me to send over my clients when I get the chance, so one day I decided to test some myself to figure out which ones I liked so that I could pass over my opinions/knowledge over to customers.

I never really used to have a big problem with acne, I've always been able to control any breakouts..thank goodness. But when I catch myself on system overload and stressed, I tend to get those irritating blemishes quickly. Thanks to Neutrogena's Oil Free Acne Scrub, my skin stays balanced and refreshed. Now that it's winter, which causes quick dryness to my skin and because the fact that this scrub has exfoliating beads, I use only a little in order to clean, soften, and gently exfoliate.

To moisturize, I use Sisley's Complexe aux Resines Tropicales, which restores the balance of my skin complexion, regulates my sebum secretions, tightens my pores, and purify's my skins. Even though I don't have major acne issues, I still have some acne scarring and this moisturizer definitely evens it out and lessens the redness those scars left! It's literally a miracle cream! I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend any Sisley products!

Every so often I'll get those nasty blemishes, and Clinique's Spot Healing Gel is a great quick fix. I first heard about this product through my cousin, Camilla and within hours, the redness disappears! Although it stings a little, it's totally worth it because it prevents it from growing into a pimple!

Not to be narcissistic, but I love my lips and they get dry very easily. Right now I'm currently testing Kiehl's Scented Lip Balm #1 and so far it's relieving chapped or cracked lips. Though it is practical, I'm not too sure I like the gloss effect that comes out of it, then again I like how it brings attention to my lips! haha And with a mild sunscreen of SPF 4, it's even more of a great buy, but I think I still miss my Rosebud more, which is more waxy and less wet/messy than Kiehl's. What do you guys use?!
