Acne Sucks: Alba Botanica Natural ACNEdote Deep Pore Wash

Welp…it looks like I’m having another one. And it’s bad. I’m assuming it’s just my skin wanting to attack me for whatever reason.

Olay Complete's New and not so Improved...

I’m not happy. I’m not. WHO told Olay to change their Olay Complete face moisturizer? I’m okay with packaging changes.

A reader recently emailed me about face scrubs. She was looking for a new one and wanted to know about my favorite. Since I have been using the Clarisonic , I don’t feel the need to exfoliate my face using a scrub. But every now I like to get a deep down scrubbing. I’ve never […]
