Wow, I really waited awhile to finish part two of my favorite facial products. Between weaning off seroquel, trying to figure out paleo meals, and pain attacks, it wasn't a priority for me. But now I'll finish up. And let me tell you the products I'm about to tell you about are AH-MAZING!! So here we go, onto part II
Now that I have shared my daily cleansing routine in Part I, it’s time to share my favorite “extras” that I use occasionally to keep my skin clear, luminous, and wrinkle-free. I have already shared the benefits of Peter Thomas Roth’s Un-Wrinkle and how it works wonders on fine lines on my forehead and eyes.
I got a sample of this when I ordered some products from Sephora. It was love at first try. I immediately went to the store to buy this stuff. It’s a mud mask that pulls out all the impurities and blackheads in your skin. As it dries, it leaves dark spots showing where it’s pulling out an impurity; so cool. You can use it as a spot treatment or all over. Mr.Surly uses this, too (Shhh, don’t tell him I told you) and noticed his pores were smaller after a few uses. I have small pores so I’ll have to take his word for it. Now, there is a caveat; since it pulls out impurities, you could wake up with a pimple the next day. But it comes to a head and doesn’t last long. It makes me feel good that all the yucky bacteria is pulled out from beneath my skin. This is a must have in my skin care routine.
Philosophy 2 step Microdelivery Peel
This is a great product to use before or after showering. It’s a two step process. First, you scrub your skin with the exfoliant, then add the liquid enzyme. It reacts and produces a foam you can rub around on your face, then let sit. I use this to get rid of tiny bumps on my face (esp my forehead).
Philosopy Microdelivery One Minute Purifying Peel
Yes, you read that right. A one minute peel; ONE MINUTE. Who is too busy for a minute enzyme peel? Not me. I may leave it on for a bit longer than a minute. It tingles and you can feel it working. My face is a bit red when I rinse it off, but it doesn't matter because I do this at night. The redness could be due to my sensitive skin, who knows. But I love this stuff.
NOTE: Not a paid advertisement for GlamGlow nor Philosophy. I bought each product myself and found them so amazing I had to share them.
