Put Your Best Face Forward Part II

Pin It Now!

face products

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.


GlamGlow Mud
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.

I wish I could comment on the gastritis page, but it doesn't look like it will let me. i've been suffering from similar symptoms for almost 10 years and I've been to several doctors and they all said "IBS". Bull! I'm finally feeling like I'm getting a breakthrough because I had an allergic reaction to stevia (which is related to ragweed, which I am allergic to) and then started researching foods related to ragweed / cross reactive foods. I came across OAS (oral allergy syndrome) and everything said that rarely you would get stomach issues, but I have them daily (as you described, but they're pretty mild — right now!). The everchanging list of foods I can or can't eat is not really helpful, and my symptoms get better or worse with no pattern seemingly related to what I eat.

Anyway, I'm seeing an allergist next wednesday and I'm going to ask him about eosinophilic gastritis. Thank you for sharing your medical journey!

and one more thing — I forgot to mention that the one other answer besides IBS that I'd gotten from a GI specialist is that my stomach doesn't empty at a decent rate. But her suggestion was to take a laxative. Um. No thanks.
