Girly Girl Pick of the Week 12/05

Okay, so the request is moisturizer. I can do that!!! First off, I've got to say that since the weather has changed, I've been a big zit. If you're feeling like me, don't stop moisturizing! The dry cold is way worse than a bad skin week, and has more long-term effects.



I use Proactiv as a cleansing system, and the moisturizer in it is fantastic. There are mall kiosks where you can get the product separate from the whole trio, but it works well on its own. It's not overdrying, but it does have a small amount of salycylic acid in it which helps combat blotchy skin and zits.

In addition to that, I use Clinique's Repairwear at night, along with Advanced Stop Signs Eye. During the day, I use Clinique's Repairwear Day (which is NOT greasy under makeup) along with All About Eyes (that I've talked about before).



Another good moisturizer, which I switch off with and use sparingly is The Body Shop's Vitamin C Skin Boost. They also have a whole line of Vitamin C products to be used together, although I haven't tried them all. I do love the consistencies of the vitamin c moisturizers and lotions and they're worth trying.

The weather here is killing my skin. Zits? I am too old for this nonsense. Any recommends for that?

I hear you... I'm way too old, and yet I look like I'm in junior high right now.

Clean and Clear makes a good "spot treatment" but I only like it at night because if you use too much it sort of peels off weird. Also, Mario Badescu makes a good spot treatment, but you have to order it online.

thanks a million for the moisture tips! i love clinique but haven't tried that one yet. also i have been so tempted to get the proactiv but can't justify it just because jessica promotes it! i just ordered it so i remain hopeful!

Holly said...

Yeah, Britney promotes it too so that's sort of icky. But so does Alicia Keys, and she's cool. :)

Holly said...

I am going to try the vitamin c one. I love body shop! So are you still planning a make-up/drink day?

Holly said...

I am thinking of doing it after the holidays, like in January, when everyone isn't feeling so poor. It's also good if we're feeling the winter blahs and need to have some fun. :)

Thoughts?

January makes sense. Though I am feeling the winter blah's now!
