Oh, was I wrong.
I've had two lovely babies in the last two years, and aside from what pregnancy does to the torso, it does wonderful and terrible things to the skin as well. I had flawless skin when I was pregnant (thank you, hormones), but while my skin looked wonderful, it felt like sandpaper. Oily sandpaper. No matter how hard I scrubbed my face or wore a mask, I just couldn't get that silky skin feeling back.
Once I started doing some research, I realized that the only option I had was a good moisturizer. And so the search was on.
Let me tell you...it sucked. I did research, watched countless videos on youtube, read a thousand blogs, and I just couldn't find a moisturizer that fit me. (Granted, I did go cheap. Probably should have started around the mid-grade stuff, but hey, it's a learning experience.)
Then I came across this:
I am kind of 'eh' on Clean and Clear, first of all. Not that they aren't a great company, but their products just didn't do it for my acne-prone skin in highschool. Thus, I have a slight
|Holy crap! Where'd my thumb go? I have stubby freak fingers here.|
I stayed with the Clean and Clear for a couple of weeks, but after watching a vlog on RoC skin care, I decided to bite the bullet and purchase a more expensive moisturizer in hopes that it could work miracles. This is the one I got:
Deep wrinkle, you say? Oh, yes, because my husband so jokingly pointed out that I had a wrinkle on my forehead from squinching (yes, I just made up a word. Feel free to use it as you wish) when I read. I didn't believe him, but when I looked in the mirror a while later, I realized he was right! He has no idea what he has done....
The only thing bad I have to say about this product is it is a bit pricey. A little over $20 for the tube which I know is expensive for a lot of people (including me. ESPECIALLY me.) But I am now a firm believer in saving up for good skincare products. This tube will last me for a while, and it came with a second product, which makes me feel just a tad bit better about buying it.
