Let’s start a skin care blog!

I have the weirdest skin; oily, sensitive, dry, blemish-prone, semi-large pores. It's a bit more extreme than combination and the oily part is definitely heaviest. I have tried far too many products for acne and healthy skin. Some times, if I don't have a bad reaction to it, my skin clears up right away and it is the best feeling in the world! But every single time, after about two months, my skin gets used to the product and reverts back to it's awkwardness.

With this in mind, I would like to begin a section of my blog devoted to skincare and the trials of it. I'll try a few "cures" (home-remedies, drug store brands, etc) every month or so and report back with just how well, or awfully, they worked!

Just so everyone knows, I'm not one of those makeup gurus that knows what everything is made of and how it will aid and react with your skin. I'm only blogging about how my skin is and how things react with my personal type of skin and the information I know from other gurus or websites. Sadly, I cannot tell you what you should do for your skin if it differs from mine. The good thing is that my skin tends to have a lot of different problems so if I find something that works fabulously on my skin when it gets really dry, maybe that will work for your skin if dryness is your main problem! Also, if you guys would like to try some things I'm not, or have already tried a few things and would like to give tell us what helped you by all means comment away.

I really hope this helps both of us!


  1. I have almost identical skin to you lol right now I'm using St. Ives apricot scrub and for most of my face its awesome, but now my forehead is crazy broken out. I had been using proactiv before which for the most part worked except for the massive volcano on my face every couple months. But the price for it was just unbearable, the bigger sized "2-month" bottles run for like $50 a pop. Hence my change to St. Ives. I hope you have luck in finding something that continually helps your skin.
