As I alluded to in yesterday's post, I had a facial yesterday. I'll discuss that at the end of this post because I want to show after pictures first.
Stacie is my friend Ann's sister-in-law. She sells Mary Kay and came up to do facials. Here Stacie is putting eyeshadow on Eden.
Like many skincare brands, the one I was using despite the inconvenience reformulated products, discontinued products, and replaced them with something similar. That's all fine because many companies do that, products are improved. However, the whole online thing made things difficult. I need to be able to try out new products, feel them on my skin, see how they work, especially for the price. That doesn't happen in a virtual world if the company doesn't have a great sampling program. I made the decision to search out a different regimen. After trial-and-error with different brands, my sensitive skin decided that I could do an à la carte skincare system. If something worked by company A, but other products by them didn't, it wasn't all or none. Here is my current regimen:
• Cleanser--Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
• Toner--Kiehl's Ultra Facial Toner
• Serum--Kiehl's 'Abyssine' Serum
• Eye Cream--Kiehl's 'Abyssine' Eye Cream
• Moisturizer-- Kiehl's Ultra Facial Daily Cream
When I find something that works for me, I don't want to change up because my skin can be sensitive. Knowing this, I was open to Mary Kay's TimeWise(registered trademark) Microdermabrasion Set and masks because I haven't added those back into my regimen. I picked up the former and look forward to seeing how it works for me as I add it to my skincare regimen. My regimen is pretty involved and not cheap, but I'm still winning the fight against crow's feet and other lines.
