Girly Girl Pick of the Week 11/21

Okay, so I'm obsessed with my face and moisturizing and all that good stuff. But THIS product, used a couple of times a week exfoliates and gives your face a glow. You know when you feel like your skin just feels "blah?" Yeah, I do too... before attributing it to too many martinis (because you can never have too many) give this a whirl and see what your face looks and feels like.

I'm talking about Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub!

This orange-y and clove smelling scrub is great, but really you're going to only want to use it a couple of times a week because if your skin is at all sensitive (like mine, I could breathe wrong and be all red-faced and have a zit or something) it'll tear it up. Wash normally, then grab this yummy scrub. Mix it with water, gently massage it on, and let the all-natural products work their magic. Don't get it near your eyes unless you want wrinkles in ten years! I follow it up with a nice toner and then a bunch of moisturizer and I wake up the next day looking like a young girl of 15. No, better than when I was 15 because with all the dance and plays I did, I had major makeup-ick face.

Alllso, as a bonus (and here I go plugging Clinique again! If my career doesn't work out, I'll be either a Wal-Mart greeter or a Clinique girl) I wake up in the morning and use Clinique's All About Eyes. I could have been up all night with a good Irish stout and a hot man, and I look like I got some shut-eye. Keep it in the fridge... aaahhh... now that feels good.

heh, we are so hard to please! i will give the scrub a try, it looks harsh so i have avoided it in the past. since we are on skincare--it's time to move past the clinique bar soap. what other face wash in their line is good?

Holly said...

Clinique's Foaming Face Cleanser is a good one, but it sort of leaves a residue that I don't like until I use a toner after. I use Neutrogena cleanser and it's mild and good and gets off makeup really well.

my skin is a glow with citrus goodness! nothing like a night in with a new beauty product. good call, thanks!

next--i retract the cleanser request to be replaced with a moisturizer recommend. um, please?

I promised Ami we'd do foundations this week, so check out the latest!

I'm a moisturizer-aholic so that'll be good for next week. :)
