I would like to preface this whole deal by saying one thing: I love my baby. Like a lot a lot. She's cute and super cool and smells good (sometimes) and makes me a better person all around.
She ruined my body. Like a lot a lot.
I have saggy swingy boobs now. My belly is "interesting" (but discovering a little gem called Yummie Tummie has been helping with that). And my skin. Ugh, don't get me started on my skin. It's ruined. It's terrible. Like embarrassingly terrible.
Like fifteen year old boy who's voice is cracking, eats pizza 5 times a day and works the fryer at McDonalds terrible.
I know, right? And this was on a GOOD day!
I was one of those lucky girls in high school who didn't have to deal with teenage acne. And I told anyone that would listen that I never took my makeup off at night and used bar soap every day on my life.
It was awesome.
And then I gave birth to Audrey.
So I have this amazing friend named Silvia who has been telling me about this beauty line called Beauty Society where she is a "Diva".
Beauty Society is a company founded by a woman named Jeannie Lorin who says, in her own words, that she is "obsessed with helping women obtain their Full Potential In Beauty, Financial Dreams and Giving Back to the world!" Not a bad goal to have, if I do say so myself.
What she has created is a beauty empire with a conscience, where women can run and control their own businesses in an 'everyone wins' business model while giving back to women throughout the world.
Getting back to me...
Now I'm more of a complainer, not so much a doer. I mean she's been telling me about her line for EVER and I pretty much just preferred to sit and whine about how crappy my skin was. Doing something, well, that would be way too proactive for me.
And then this beautiful little care package came in the mail...(by the way, it's probably the best smelling package I've ever received too. Like how you would imagine a love letter from Elle Woods would be.)
Now mind you when you look at how much of the cleanser I've used...I got this back in SEPTEMBER, it is now mid DECEMBER!
First off, we have Set Me Free pore clearing cleanser. Um, LOVE. This is the description on the site:
Break free from the shackles of excess oil, impurities, congested pores and those horrible nuisances called 'breakouts'. Made entirely of fresh natural cleansing agents derived entirely from tea tree, sage, thyme and eucalyptus, this amazingly powerful, oil free cleanser was created for those with normal-to-oily blemish-prone skin types to purify pores deep down where the issues start. Set your best face forward from this day on with beautifully clearer, healthier skin.
My description is that it's a bottle of awesomeness that smells all minty and fresh. Easily removes eye makeup and doesn't make my face feel all dried out. I use it every time I wash and even with a face scrub brush for extra exfoliation.
Next we have Drama Free (don't you just love the name?) repair serum. This is what the site says about it:
Your life has enough drama. Make your skin one less thing to worry about. Let this ultra-powerful, cutting edge serum take the 'drama' away from multiple skin issues related to sun-damage, fine lines, rosacea, scarring, acne, laser or chemically treated skin. Ingredients like soluble betaglucans, superoxide dismutase and sodium hyaluronate will work overtime to bring back the youthful glow and continue to teach the skin to repair itself. Now the drama in your life won't show on your face.
I have to say, this stuff works. I have been so worried about the long term damage to my skin (marks and scars) due to the break outs and this stuff has been working hard to clear it all away. I am positive my skin wouldn't look as great as it does now without it.
Now my FAVORITE MUST NEED YOU HAVE TO BUY NOW item is Blemish 911. Observe...
Stop picking and let this wonder gel soothe, fight bacteria, and fix that pesky blemish. Salicylic acid cleans the pores while hydrating algae, betaglucans, green tea and cornflower go to work so that irritation, redness and inflammation don't take over your face. Then, an invisible seal covers and protects the blemish from pollutants and makeup. Those blemishes don't stand a chance against the hop-to-the-rescue super gel.
Okay, my description? This little blue bottle is full of acne voodoo and kickassedness (is that a word? It is now.) No seriously, it is. I put it on a jerkface pimple at night and like magic, all gone by morning. If you're going to by one troubleshooting product, this would be it.
And last but not least we have Anytime Anywhere time-released moisturizer.
Smooth it on baby! Anytime. Anywhere. This time-released, age-fighting moisturizer isn't called the 'smart moisturizer' for nothin'. Working with the skin's own natural moisturizing lipids, Anytime, Anywhere perfectly balances any skin type -- normal, oily or dry. Worn day and night, this silky soft lotion delivers deep down hydration, while also fighting back the hands of time with Vitamins A, C and E.
I will admit one thing about myself here, I am a moisturizer snob. I have been know to shell out some serious coin on stuff like La Mer, Shiseido and Dr.Perricone. I know good moisturizer when I see it. And ladies, let me tell you...I saw it! This is my new go-to for my face. No heavy perfume, creamy texture and non-greasy. What's not to love.
So now for the end result...
Afraid to try it out? Don't be! All Beauty Society products are 100% money back guaranteed for 1 year on skin care (30 days on makeup) so it's completely RISK FREE! You can't even get that kind of deal at the department stores. (Trust me, I've tried to return products, it doesn't go over so well with the perfume jockeys.) If that's not kickass enough, certain products are recyclable and REFILLABLE. Yes, you read that right. You get a discount when you buy refills as opposed to buying a whole new bottle. Genius.
Try it out, you won't be sorry. Get to know Silvia, she's super nice. I've known her half my life so she's pretty legit. :)
Are you looking to find a new product? Whats your trouble area? Have you tried Beauty Society before?
Now for the legal sounding crap. Other than having been given product for review, I was not compensated in any way for my glowing review and was not swayed in any other way. I just really think they are awesomesauce. Now go order from Silvia. You're welcome.
