Many of you have watched my videos of face peels and beauty creams. I am 34 years old. I spent too much time in the sun for my tastes and I used to smoke! Both of these can really harm my journey in anti aging. I have accepted my fine lines and wrinkles…but it does NOT mean I wont combat em! Over the years I have had the amazing blessing of being able to converse with some of the top names in Makeup and beauty. You’d be surprised what you can get out of a bitch after a few glasses of wine! I am going to list all the products I use on my face (except for facial peels, as I already have a beauty blog on the two I use!).
I know some of these are expensive, but a little goes a LONG way. After I started using this serum and cream, my own best friend inquired if I had started using botox. I was fucking amazed. She almost didn’t believe me! I am the first to tell you to not waste your money on clothes, but some things are worth the price tag…others are not. There are a LOT of beauty products with hefty price tags and fake celeb endorsements, but I have used and learned through trial by error. These are my go to beauty must haves!

I wash my face with a cheap over the counter cleanser. This is recommended by MOST dermatologists. Dr. Will Kirby suggested this one to me and I have used it ever since!
I DO use my clarisonic a few times a week. It has made a HUGE difference on my cheek pimples (fuck you, cheek pimples!) and makes my skin glowy. You don’t NEED to have one, but my guy got it for me for Christmas and I use it religiously! I use it with my cetaphil instead of their face washes.
First, eye creams are a RIP OFF. They are unnecessary and a waste of your money! There is no special cream for the special wonderful skin around your eyes. I learned this from one of Beverly hills top estheticians. She said a serum you use on your face will be JUST as good, if not better. She suggested I use the Same serum by Jan marini sparingly on both my face AND eyes. I wear this both morning and night….but at night I ONLY use this.
ONLY in the morning do I use this sparingly on my face AFTER I applied the serum (again, I use that sparingly as well)
To shrink my big ole nose pores or to combat red puffy pimples, I slap this bad boy on. When it dries out it feels like you can’t make ANY facial expressions!
So, there you have it. After many years of buying to hype and purchasing pricey shit that didn’t work…and then many more years of swearing I could use drugstore shit for the result…these are my holy grail for not looking my age. I wont lie and say it comes naturally. I eat well, take vitamins and drink seltzer water ALL DAY. Aging sucks, but doing it gracefully is on my agenda. I have been using all of these for a few years (except the clarisonic, only one year) and this has been a life savior.
Any suggestions? (please dont mention oil of olay…lol…I hate it!) Also, anything you guys are interested in me trying and reviewing? I am open to anything….just dont fuck with me and make me use shit that will ruin my life 😛
