Dare to Bare, NO Makeup...

Hey Glamour Dolls!

I was inspired by the gorgeous Sabina at Makeup Addict. She did a Dare to Bare, No Makeup post earlier in the year... I finally got up enough nerve to bare my face without any makeup on my blog. Here goes...




It pains me to post this pic but it is what it is... I really only wear a full face of makeup 2 days a week, you would think I would be more comfortable without makeup!

Do you to Dare to Bare?

Elf Zit Zapper Review

Even in my late twenties (it pains me to say late twenties...ugh!) I'm still battling with adult acne, I'm really starting to think it'll never go away.

I'm always on the look out for acne fighting products that help to treat and prevent acne flareups. I was watching a You Tube video and in the video she was raving about Elf's Zit Zapper, since I'm a fan of Elf products I thought I would give it a try. Here are my thoughts...




PRODUCT CLAIMS
"Zap zits away with the unique blend of Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Oil, Witch Hazel and Camphor.

This special clear formula helps to fight and prevent acne, reduce redness and swelling, minimize pore size and clear skin."



PROS
-Very affordable, only $1. -Can be easily purchased at Elf's website or Target stores. -Very small size, fits in your pocket or cosmetic bag. -It's 0.2 fl oz but lasts a long time. -Reduces redness from pimples.
CONS
-Because of the medicine and other ingredients in it, it has a strong scent.…

SKIN FIXERS 



To combat the extra oil my skin produces in the summer I apply Mac Oil Control lotion every day to reduce the oil on my skin. I apply a lot around my nose and forehead because this is where I retain the most oil.

To get rid of the midday shine I use Avon Oil blotting sheets. I love these sheets because they take away the shine without ruining my makeup. I also use my beloved Mac Fix Plus to refresh my skin for those humid and sticky days.



FOUNDATION




I really don't wear foundation in the summer a lot unless I'm making a special appearance or going out because I want less products on my face in the summer. If and when I do wear any foundation in th…
