So Random!

Hola my beauties! Slacker, slacker, slacker... tsk tsk. Anyways, I've been pretty wrapped up. Anyways, enough of the excuses. So now I'm on the hunt for a new skin care regime.

I've been using Fresh's Soy Face Cleanser since January and it's time to change it up. PLUS! That cleanser is $38 friggin dollars. I know it's skin care and it's okay to splurge, but the way the economy is heading, yeah, I should be saving. Anyways, the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser is good, but for some reason, I'm starting to feel like I'm not getting a deeper clean. With the heat coming on, I've been laying on the SPF and I don't think my cleanser was removing all that stuff. Which lead to clogged pores, then leads to little breakouts. DOOHH! So enough of the cream cleanser, it's time to bring on the tingly gel bead like goodies. I decided to channel my old teenage self and went back to Clean and Clear. I bought the Oil Free Daily Pore Cleanser. Let's hope this works out! So far, I'm loving this stuff. My face feels ubbbeer clean and it's not dry or tight after I'm done rinsing. I don't have a toner yet, but I'm looking for one that's alcohol free.

I have dry, semi-sensitive skin, so it's a bit complicated.
Any recommendations? Besides, Clinique, Aveeno, Cetaphil, Fresh, St. Ives, Mario Badescu, and Origins? (yes, I've tried all of those) Or whatever, what do you use?!?!?

Anyways, so I'm patiently waiting for my MAC order. GAHHH! Hurry up, already! I can't wait to post the goodies I got. After this I'll be taking a break from MAC. Yes, I mean it! OooOH! ANNNND! Since it's getting freaking humid as crap outside, I wanted a tinted moisturizer with SPF. I used Fresh's High Noon as a TM, but there's no SPF. Then I bought Benefit's You Rebel and then I busted a few pimples =(. WOMP WOMP WOMP! So now, I rekindled with my Laura Mercier Oil Free TM. Then I decided to get my MAC Strobe Cream and mix the two. TA DAAAA! I LOOVVE this stuff. It's absolutely fab! Now if I can only find my new skincare regime... hmmmm Ookay, sorry for my lack of pics and stuff.

OOOOH! I want a new mask too! I found this at ULTA when I was shopping with Trish. C. Booth Deep Cleansing Volcanic Mud Mask. I've heard so much good stuff about MAC's le Volcanic Ash Exfoliator. So when I ran into this, I got excited. I didn't buy it though cause I wanted to do more reasearch. It's only 9.99 at ULTA! Anyone tried this?

This post is a little meh, but oh well, you still read it. PUAHAH! Ooh yeah, as for an update on Operation Sexy. Today, me and the Husby ran two miles and did a few sets of stairs. Aye yeh yeh, it's easy to do two miles on the treadmill, but outisde in the heat, eeks, it's tough. But, we did it! GAHHH! I smell the bikini already... but I'm not quite ready yet.

Already, I'm out! Later BEAUTY HOMMIIEESS!

Yay thanks for the heads up about the volcano mask. I am soooo making an Ulta run this week.

Good luck on your skin care hunt. I hope Clean & Clear works for you. I used their line back in the day & loved it!

I think I'm returning You Rebel too. :(

It has been so long since I have left a comment. But you are talking about my favorite thing in the world, skin care products!!!!

Toner - ever tried Aveda? Or Soothing toner by Dermalogica? They are very nice and that brand Marsico ? you have something of their already I believe.

Don't worry package of goodies coming soon, I promise!!!

Queen Helene's garlic shampoo! I hear that a good garlic shampoo is the cure for shedding and I was researching some Queen Helene's products and on Makeup Alley her Garlic Shampoo had ZERO bad reviews. Hmmmmm....we should try so we don't waste money on drain-o! haha! and it doesn't smell like garlic! =) anywho...i'll see you on friday love!

I have the opposite problem...I have my skincare regimen down pat, but I'm in search for a good foundation/TM. *sigh*

FAIL on getting in shape for Vegas. I had to stop working out for a while and now I have less than two weeks to try to get back in shape. Eeek!

I bought YOu Rebel lite and it dried up my skin. I hope it

rosalynreynoso said...

ok i went back and added the colors for you! hahahaha. can't wait to see what you got!! =)

Iyah said...

Oh No!! I'm sorry to hear that YOu Rebel broke you out X( Its my favorite TM because it brightens up my complexion. But I'm almost done with it so I need a new one.

I feel also that my cleanser is not doing that much for me so I am thinking of investing into clarisonic but I;m not sure bec its too expensive X(
