Out with the Old - March 2015

 I'm throwing out a lot of stuff this month, including all of my glitter eyeliners! I was particularly sad about that, I loved my Candy Glitter Liners, but they were all dried up (and probably overdue to get tossed, honestly). As always, products I'll be repurchasing, or already had a backup of will be marked with an asterisk. Here's my March empties.

Skincare Routine - Fighting Acne and Acne Scars with Affordable Products

 At the end of January and beginning of February, I was using a cleanser that caused me to break out pretty badly. Here we are at the end of March and I'm still dealing with a couple left over pimples and of course, the residual acne scarring. This prompted me to tweak my skincare routine just a little. Most products have stayed the same, but the changes I've made are worth mentioning. Anyway, here's what I've been using for the last six or seven weeks.

Before I tell you about the products I use, let me explain my skin type real quick. I have normal, non-sensitive skin that gets just a little oily in the t zone, with large pores and mild redness in the same area. I'm prone to small breakouts on my chin and near my eyebrows.

Laneige BB Cushion Swatches

 Laneige is a Korean beauty brand that's becoming increasingly popular in the US. They offer a wide range of unique and innovative products (now sold at Target!), including the BB Cushion foundation. Laneige says"no messy creams. No stained palms. The patented air cushion distributes just the right amount of makeup. The antimicrobal puff  puts you in control to prime and perfect your complexion. Apply whenever and wherever you want, with no bulidup or bother." This compact BB Cream offers SPF 50 Broad Spectrum Sun Protection and is available in just three shades. I received a sampler in a recent Ipsy Bag, so today I'm bringing you swatches of all three shades.
