Why Do I Still Get....

zits?? I know this may come as a shock to some...but I'm not as young as I seem... ;) So why is it, then, that I still have so many breakouts? I was for sure I left those behind in high school...along w/ bad hair, weird clothes, and questionable life choices. I have yet to outgrow them, it seems...

I've tried facials...and visited the Clinique counter more times than I'd like to count. Nothing was fact, some things were making the problem worse.

So...I started looking into those cool little brush things...the rotating kind that really get in and cleanse the skin. The only problem...the particular little beauty I was looking at tipped the register at $200. A wee bit too much to spend...not knowing if the product would work.

Then one day...while drifting through my beloved Target...I found the Olay ProX.

 It looked exactly like the other brush thingy I had been contemplating...but it was only $30. This was much more my speed...and the results (while I don't know how truly wonderful the more expensive one is) have been great! My skin has started to clear up quite a bit...and *bonus* my pores are appearing smaller too.

Moral of the story...something doesn't always have to cost a lot to get the job done (and also...I might just kick puberty yet!)


  1. this is great to know! great to know! thanks for telling me about this!

  2. I totally need to get one of those! Every time I think my face is clearing up, then BAM I get another stinking zit!

  3. What type of skin do you have?! Because my skin has just started getting horrible in the past year, and I thought that was so strange, because I never had acne in high school or college, and then all of a sudden, BAM! I'm a freaking pizza face (okay, not really, but I definitely no longer have good skin). I've tried EVERYTHING and nothing works... so if you have the same skin type as me (dry) and it works for you... I'm going to the store right now. lol

  4. thanks for the comments! skin is a bit oily on my nose, especially. I always thought i had mostly oily skin...but every time i get a facial, they tell me how dry it maybe we have similar skin. also...i've read that around 30, women break out on their chin and jawline more b/c of a change in hormones. that is exactly where the majority of my spots are. There is usually a dark spot that stays around for such a long time after. I've only been using this on a regular basis for about a month and a half. I hope to see even better results, too. hope this helps! :)

  5. Ah! Yes. I think I just may have to try this miracle brush! Thanks so much for the info!!!
