I Can See Clearly Now, The Acne’s (Almost) Gone

Posted on by daneen in Acne, Skin Care | 3 Comments

on+a+clear+day+philosophy I Can See Clearly Now, The Acne’s (Almost) Gone
It is with wholehearted exuberance that I recommend Philosophy’s On A Clear Day products for all of you complexionally challenged readers out there.

After months of feeling defeated by my adult acne, I decided enough was enough; it was time for me to take back my skin. Problem is, the dead of winter isn’t the best time to be messing around with an acne regimen that can strip already desiccated skin.

Most acne products leave my skin so flaky that it looks like my face has dandruff. No joke…like I’m molting. So when I heard about Philosophy’s new On A Clear Day line, I felt compelled to sacrifice my face in the name of beauty. Philosophy has never done me wrong before, so I decided to take a gamble. And, let me tell you, this one paid off with rich dividends.

After only testing the system for five days, my skin was significantly clearer and brighter – with no drying whatsoever! I couldn’t believe that acne products this gentle could yield such noticeable results, in less than a week.

What I love most about the On A Clear Day line is that the products (Oil-Free Foaming Acne Cleanser, Oil-Free Spot Treatment, Oil-Free All Over Acne Treatment, and Retinol Clarifying Lotion) are all meant to be used once in the morning and again at night. The fact that this system is my AM and PM ritual makes it super easy for me to use the products consistently, which is the reason why I’ve noticed such amazing and immediate results.

Sold separately, the products cost between $18 and $40…but I wouldn’t recommend purchasing a la carte. Do your wallet a favor and pick up the Completely Clear Skin System, which includes the four full-sized products and costs $65. If you’re feeling extra frugal, Sephora sells a quartet of smaller sizes for $35.

This past weekend while shopping at Sephora, I noticed a woman holding the Completely Clear Skin System. She was intently reading the box, with a somewhat cynical look on her face. I brazenly tapped her on the shoulder and insisted she put the box in her basket and march on over to the register. That’s how impressed I am with On A Clear Day…I’m in the store pimping out the products like I’ve got stock in the company.

Considering the results this line delivers, maybe buying stock isn’t such a bad idea.

90s Ladies Week: What’s Up, Doc?

Posted on by daneen in 90s Ladies Week, Exfoliation, Holy Grail, Skin Care | 1 Comment

doc+martens 90s Ladies Week: Whats Up, Doc?
In the early to mid 1990s, Doc Martens were the nirvana of cool. And I, like many, fell under the spell of the chunky-soled boots with the distinctive yellow stitching. I begged my parents to buy me a pair of Doc Martens – or as my mother called them, “those ugly doctor shoes.” But they refused, wondering why I would want to appear as if I was moonlighting as a construction worker. Eventually, I forgave my parents for depriving me of Doc Martens – once I realized how truly ridiculous I would have looked tromping around in them. Then ironically, in the late 90s, my mom bought me a pair of Doc Marten sandals she found on sale at Daffy’s. So I did eventually become cool – just, like, four years too late.

It’s 2008 now, and I’ve got heart palpitations over another doctor. While rooting around on my mom’s vanity a few weeks ago, I discovered an unopened jar of Dr. Brandt’s Microdermabrasion For Face. When I asked where and when she bought it, she couldn’t remember. Who does that? Who randomly buys beauty products then forgets about them? Unbelievable. I mean, sometimes I wonder how this woman and I can possibly be related. Anyway, so I asked politely to sample and she obliged. What happened next was a thing of myth.

dr+brandt+microdermabrasion 90s Ladies Week: Whats Up, Doc?The pharmaceutical grade crystals polished away all of my dead skin cells, leaving behind the softest, most radiant skin I’ve seen in forever ever. And it literally took two minutes. I couldn’t believe it. I emerged from the bathroom with an enormous grin, feeling up my face – incredulous that it could be so smooth. I urged my mom to touch my cheek and she was beyond impressed too.

I asked to take it off her hands…but after seeing the results, there was no way she was letting me leave her house with Dr. Brandt in tow.

Can you believe it? The woman who is the main beneficiary of my beauty beneficence doesn’t want to share. But she did give me life, and a pair of Doc Marten sandals (albeit four years late), so I guess I’ll just have to go out and get my own.

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion For Face is available at Sephora and drbrandtskincare.com.

Well, that concludes 90s Ladies Week. I hope you had as much fun reading as I did writing. And be sure to visit Amber at Beauty Blogging Junkie and check out her final installment.

Bioelements Sleepwear Giveaway!

Sleepwear Bioelements Sleepwear Giveaway!
Lately, I’ve been having a little love affair with Bioelements. I am so impressed with the products’ ability to deliver on promises that I’m giving Spoiled Pretty readers an opportunity to take the brand for a test drive. This week, three of you will win Bioelements Sleepwear, an overnight rejuvenation crème.

With Sleepwear, you will experience visibly smoother, firmer skin in just one night. This miraculous overnight treatment infuses the complexion with a scientific complex of topical calcium, time-released retinol, cranberry seed oil and protein peptides. This dream team of ingredients works all night long to rebuild firming collagen and elastin, replenish antioxidants, improve moisture retention and strengthen the skin’s protective barrier layer. Plus, it blocks the production of damaging substances called “MMPs” that cause wrinkles, sags and premature aging.

This nutrient-rich night creme needs to be “friction-activated” prior to application. Which means that, before applying to face, you scoop a small amount into the palm of your hand and gently “slap” 30 times in your palm to release the active ingredients. Immediately apply onto clean, dry skin.

Sleepwear retails for $59.00 and is available at Bioelements spas nationwide.

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The subject line should read “Bioelements Sleepwear Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, October 19th. Three winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, October 20th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

If Loving You Is Wrong, I Don’t Wanna Be Right

Posted on by daneen in Skin Care | 2 Comments

bioelements+recovery+serum If Loving You Is Wrong, I Dont Wanna Be Right
Lately, my bedtime routine involves removing my contact lenses, washing my face, applying Bioelements Recovery Serum, and curling up with Bitter Is The New Black before drifting off to sleep. But everytime I apply the silky, emollient product, it just feels so wrong…like I’ve accidentally grabbed a bottle of silicone hair serum and smeared it all over my face. Yes, it feels wrong. But when used consistently, you’ll understand why it’s so right.

“Super-charged with a skin-repairing blend of lipids, ceramides and aromatherapist oils,” Recovery Serum repairs and soothes damaged, over-exfoliated or aging skin and restores its moisture barrier. Apply it in the AM, and marvel at how your makeup goes on smoother and lasts longer, thanks to the smooth-as-glass finish it gives the skin. Or apply in the PM and wake up all glowy and gorgeous.

And that silicone feel? That’s just temporary. Mere minutes after application, your face will drink in the Recovery Serum like it’s your skin’s J-O-B. And all that’s left is a healthy, dewy glow. Pretty slick, right?

Bioelements Recovery Serum retails for $62.00 and is only available at select salons and spas. Click here to find a location near you.
