Let's FACE it..

There's no denying that all of us have suffered at some time or another with a breakout. I'll be the first to admit that although my skin might look nice right now, I still get a breakout every now and then.

Neutrogena's advanced 3-step acne therapy system is something that has definitely helped me. It smells a little weird but you get used to it after using it religiously..and it's worth it. It's clinically proven to start clearing breakouts in 2 days. "Clinical studies prove that this system works to quickly reduce breakouts and delivers lasting results when used as directed. Clinically proven to: kill acne-causing bacteria on day 2, 4, and 7; reduce blackheads on day 4 and 7; reduce redness and inflammation on day 4 and 7; improve skin texture on day 4 and 7; reduce full-face breakouts on day 7."

St. Ives Apricot Scrub. This is an all-time fav of mine-I have been using it forever. I go through phases with it though, like when I think something isn't good enough for my face, I try this again and it works like a charm.

"From America's #1 Scrub brand, this award-winning Apricot Scrub deep cleans, instantly leaving skin smooth and glowing.

Oil-free • Non-irritating • dermatologist-tested • 100% natural exfoliants • 100% natural extracts • Formulated without parabens and phthalates • Made without animal ingredients • Not tested on animals
Key Ingredients

APRICOTS are known to contain one of the highest levels of carotenoids (think vitamin A) and super-effective antioxidants. All of this natural power might seem, well, too powerful, but they are actually quite gentle and nourishing and they help make fresher, more nourished skin beautifully possible.

CORN KERNEL MEAL is actually flour ground from dried corn. It’s a soft, but gently powerful all-natural exfoliant that promotes skin cell turnover and regeneration. Cornmeal makes softer-feeling, fresher skin possible.

WALNUT is known for its hard shell, but when it’s ground, it becomes an amazingly effective, all-natural exfoliant ingredient in our scrubs. Not only are walnuts plentiful on the planet, they also help newer, healthier skin come to the surface."

St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub. This one is sort of new to me, but I really really like it. It smells great and it's really soft, even though it's a scrub. It just feels really good on the face, like it should.

"This dermatologist-tested scrub can actually help to clear and soothe your skin as well as reduce redness. An active blemish-fighting ingredient fights the flare-ups, while 100% natural exfoliants encourage healthier, clearer skin."
