Beauty: The Dream Team {Skin Care}

Whenever I think of the dream team, this song comes to mind:

Whoomp There It Is by Tag Team on Grooveshark

Chak a laka chack a laka chak a laka chak a. Don't ask me why because really I have no clue why. It just does. You have songs like this, yes? Except today, I'm talking about this dream team, something that makes a little bit more sense...

I've come to a conclusion. G-O-N-E are the days where I could wash my face just once a day, wear only bronzer to feel "covered" enough, and only worry about a pimple here or there every now and again. Yep, gone. Completely vanished. What happened to my low maintence, no acne skin? I WANT IT BACK! Thank you, sweet aging process. You're incredibly kind to me.

Nowadays, it takes much more work, and let's face it-research, to keep my skin clear and looking healthy. When doing my studies (er, stalking on beauty channels/youtube/etc) I came across the Avene line and everyone was raving about it. They were right...nothing else has worked for me quite like these products. I was getting so frustrated until I turned to these babies! They have cleared up my face and do a great job of keeping it under control (phew-SOMEONE needs to).

If you have blemish or acne prone skin, definitely give these products a try. I mean it. No one paid me to spit these lines, I just love these products and wanted to share in case any of you have the same problems. Then hopefully you will come rave about them to me later?

Avene Cleanance Gel Soapless Cleanser 6.76 fl oz.: Use as my normal face wash, gel cleanser gently purifies the skin. My little lifesaver in a bottle! Use both morning and night.

Cleanance K Cream-Gel 40ml/1.44oz: Combats acne breakouts and restores skins balance, targets clogged pores and blackheads. Apply to cleansed face and neck at night.  

Redness Relief Soothing Cream SPF 25 - Avene - Day Care - 40ml/1.35oz: You can use this to help with any redness and also in the morning before you put your make up on since it has SPF 25.

Dream Team Over and Out.

PS: These products are all backed by my bff Steph as well, and actually she told me about product numero tres. We have been using the same face products for a long time and never realized it until my recent trip to Texas #bffproblems. So take this as a two-for-one "use these products" from the both of us!




  1. You read my mind. I have been looking for a new skin care regime... ever since I turned 26 I swear my skin has turned on me.. I can't wait to purchase these and see! Thanks!

  2. I've been breaking out lately too- not cool! I'll have to look into these products!

  3. Silly aging face problems. It bothers me so badly. I'm always looking for good skin care so thank you for sharing! And anything that blog besties use has to be good. Hope you are having a great week pretty friend.

  4. Since having my son my skin has been awful and really with a small child to look after I haven't got hours to get ready in the morning. So good skin care is now even more important to me. I'll be online buying these products once nap time begins.

  5. You should check out Rodan + Fields products! They were created by the same Dr's who created Proactive, and come with a 60-day, empty bottle, money back guarantee. I tried them and got hooked! www.facebook.com/JSheppardRandF LOVE your blog! Look forward to reading every day!

  6. Uggg. I love being in my early thirties and getting both wrinkles AND acne. Not at all cool! I also spend money on skin care like its going out of style. I tried everything and ended up going to see a naturopath that suggested my hormones may be out of balance- so she prescribed fish oil supplements, Vitamin B, vitex and.... The oil Cleansing method. It sounds scary and disgusting, but it works! My skin care now consists of a 3$ bottle of castor oil and a 5$ bottle of sunflwoer seed oil. In 4 years, my skin has NEVER looked this good AND its super cheap. I am still tempted by mainstream skin care- so I am definitely going to check this out!

  7. Ahh, acne is the worse. Will have to look into these products. I am a huge believer in Philosophy line of products for skincare right now and it smells amazing!!

  8. Party over here.
    Party over there.
    Put your hands in the air.
    Shake your derriere.

    Oooh that's it.
    Come on. Come on.
    WHOOMP there it is!

    Love you!

  9. I have been a fan of Avene products for years! MY fave and absolute saviour is the triacneal (formerly known is diacneal) it is just a life changer if you have really bad breakouts.

  10. awesome !!
    i appreciates the choice of words being used in this post and would like to add my experience being a user of such products. I too uses a skin care

    products. These are some useful products which we do need to care about in our busy life.
