Brands I'm Loving: Peter Thomas Roth

Hey Guys! So I have posted here before that I have a lot of skin struggles with oily skin and cystic acne. And I have finally found some products that have REALLY helped my skin out. I have noticed less break outs and decreased time for it to heal.  My new two holy grail products are the Max Complexion Correction Pads and Acne-Clear Invisible Dots.

REMEMBER WHEN SHOPPING: Use Ebates for cash back and coupons! Honey is a great back up when Ebates doesn't work on the site.

The pad's have helped clear up blackheads, bring some white heads to the surface and help to prevent more cystic acne I believe. There is a little peeling around some of the acne when using but Im happy its drying it out and I just switch to every other day if that happens and the peeling stops really quickly. Also I read a tip online to cut the pads in half and I would highly recommend. There is plenty of product on half a pad and this way it last twice as long. I also use it on my chest for acne and it cleared it in like two days!

I also love these dots.  I have been eyeing them for a long time and I thought what a stupid idea a sticker to help clear my acne.  BUT it has helped a ton.  I have a big break out recently and in a few days it helped my cystic acne almost go half in size which is a huge deal because usually it takes a month.  I still have one spot that I can't seem to get rid of completely but it helped in size.  I also LOVE this product because you can stick it on and not worry about it.  I usually do it before bed and I don't have to worry about it rubbing off or staining my bedding. 

This mask I really like for hydration since some of the products can be a little drying!

These products are a little pricey but I would highly recommend if you struggle with acne.  They last a really long time and do their job! I also want to try the mask and cleanser.

I would recommend trying this kit so you get samples of everything!

KATE SOMERVILLE: Blemish Banisher Review

Hi Friends, so some  of you may know that I have extremely oily and acne prone skin.  But I also have pretty bad hormonal/ cystic acne.  When doing research online about products that may help Kate Somersville products popped up a lot, so I figured I'd give it a try.  Although I have not used the 

Here's what the box includes: A cleanser, moisturizer, exfoliator, and spot treatment.

KATE SOMERVILLE: Blemish Banisher Review sephora skin care

Initial thoughts on each product:

Cleanser - The Cleanser is nice but the packaging isn't the greatest.  It is a twist top and often product spills out and it is a yellow cleanser, leaving yellow residue everywhere and wasting product.  I didn't mind the smell too much and only a little bit is needed.  It feels cleansing without stripping oils.  I wouldn't recommend this to take your make up off with.

Moisturizer:  This packaging is TINY, there is barely any product compared to the rest of the sizes.  It is also an extremely LIGHT moisturizer, the lady at Sephora suggested to get the Goat's milk moisturizer of Kate Somersville to give some moisture back into your skill. I wanted to wait since I was paying $55 anyways and that didn't come in a travel size.

Exfoliator: This has a pretty bad smell to it, is extremely milky and doesn't have much of a scrub to it.  You're suppose to put it on and leave it for 2 minutes which is a little annoying but not bad to do in the shower.  It doesn't feel like it is exfoliating much at all but it seems to do the job!

Spot Treatment:  This is a pink spot treatment, that dries and crumbles extremely easily.  I wouldn't recommend wearing it to bed or with nice clothes because you run the risk of getting pink dust EVERYWHERE and staining your sheets.  This spot treatment makes me think twice since it seems extremely similar to the Mario Bedesiuo one.  This treatment is pretty good for one coming spots the most I think, it helps with spots to reduce size but doesn't get rid of them.  And only slightly dries out my cystic acne.

Initial thoughts: I really wish that it would have come with a mask as well and a little heavier moisturizer. After a few dots I think it helped to clear up some of my smaller red bumps, and MAY possibly make my cystic acne dry out a little bit faster but it was by no means a miracle worker for my skin.  I also need a heavier moisturizer since my skin feels a little stripped.  I think I need to give it a little more time before my final decision and I will keep you updated!
