It's a very important job you know.
And of course, quality Mummy time...
But we're back and we're rested and we have things to share.
For starters, I turned 40. Not a big deal at all really, except my skin didn't get the memo. Major problem here is that my skin has hated me since I was 12. I somehow imagined that miraculously, on my 40th birthday, the madness would stop. I even went as far as to stop using my phony supermarket Proactiv type stuff and go au-naturel. BIG MISTAKE. My teenage years came roaring back with an evil vengeance as if to penalize me for being so bold as to believe that as I slide near middle age I could be lucky enough to be like a regular person. Oh no, I have the facial lines,
gray highlighted hair, AND the zits. Thanks. Thanks a lot. Well, things go so bad that my husband remarked on newly sprouted youth. It was time to toss the supermarket products and bring out the big guns. Here are a couple things I found that work and HOLY CRAP do they work. I won't bore you with the whole lineup, just the stars of the show:
DDF Brightening Cleanser. Where has this product been my whole life? Kinda like a mini-chemical peel every time you cleanse. My skin was clearer and smoother after just a few uses.
As a footnote, I don't receive compensation from any of these companies for any of this stuff. I wish. All photos courtesy of the company websites. Also thanks to Birchbox for turning me on to DDF, because before it appeared in my boxes, it was not even on the radar.
