..New Face Favorites

..New Face Favorites
1. This creamy face scrub by Clinique is exfoliating and moisturizing all at the same time, which I find to be a rarity in grainy cleansers. I absolutely love the way my face feels after using it. Period.

2. I have super super super (can't emphasize this enough) sensitive skin. As in if something isn't working for me, I will know within an hour or two because my face will start to itch, revolt against me, and then break out in cystic acne. Usually any moisturizer that has a strong SPF in it will irritate the hell out of my skin and these days it's so hard to find basic face lotions that don't have it in there. This little Simple brand gem was picked up at my local CVS and  it is a dream come true. It's made with a few basic ingredients so it doesn't bother my face yet it's still very moisturizing. It also rings in at a drug store price. Can't beat that with a stick, y'all.

3. Honestly, I am a gal that doesn't really believe in or do the whole everyday foundation thing. I am more of a tinted moisturizer user (if I use anything at all). I do use it for special occasions where I know there will be lots of photos taken (weddings, etc.) but it's not a normal thing for me. Unfortunately, as I have stated earlier, when something doesn't work, I know it right away and break out. During those times I need a full coverage beast of a foundation that won't make the situation worse. Price tags DO NOT always equal safety (sorry Chanel, your face products are beautiful but make my skin very very angry).  This Make Up For Ever HD Foundation line is amazing. They offer tons of shades for girls who have pinker under tones (which is very rare as many products assume everyone has the more common yellow ones) and its completely covering while soft and easy on the skin.

  2. I've used clinique's and MUF's but I've heard so much about Simple's cleansers! I definitely want to try it (I have super sensitive skin, too) and love an inexpensive alternative! xx HautePinkPretty
