Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid Update

Several weeks ago I received Paula's choice 2% BHA liquid free from bzz agent to try.

If you missed it ↓

I was definitely having some issues with old acne scars and cystic acne so I was soo ready to try this out. I was hoping by adding this to my current skincare that it would be the miracle that would clear up my skin.

This picture was taken right before I switched to proactiv + from regular proactiv.
Pretty right Crying face

A little back story:
I have combo skin and have had a little bit of acne issues since I was a teen. Not anything to crazy but I definitely do not have perfect skin and never have. I have used proactiv for about 4 years and just switched to proactiv + to try about 2 weeks before I started using the Paula's choice with it.

This picture was 2 weeks in with proactiv +. I could definitely tell a difference, but still had some spots. Warning scary pictures below of me with no makeupWinking smile !

These next pictures were taken at almost 4 weeks after starting using Paula's Choice 2% BHA with proactiv +
I look half awake here ↑ LOL!

I can really tell a difference. My skin tone is more even and my dark spots are diminishing. 

& best of all no more cystic acne. Woot Woot Open-mouthed smile

I am very happy with this product and I think I will order some more products from their line to try out as well.

Products used: Proactiv + Skin smoothing exfoliater, Paula's choice 2 % BHA liquid & then proactiv + complexion perfecting hydrator. I would also spot treat with proactiv + pore targeting treatment on occasion.

Bzz Agent: Paula's Choice

I received Paula's Choice 2% BHA liquid in the mail this week from bzzgent to test out. I am so excited to try this because I have heard great things about this product line. 

I have used proactiv for years but still have some problem areas on my skin so I am hoping this is the missing link to my skincare.

Gonna give it a good two to three weeks of consistent use and then I will report back ☺!

Makeup Monday

This is a great little article by Lara Ramos with ways to get more bang for your buck out of your makeup.  My two favorite tips in a nutshell from this article are don't buy 3 shades of the same color in different brands and keep tabs on how much foundation you actually use so you are not wasting product.  Great article and a good read for any makeup junkies !

Save Makeup Save Money: Tips for Making Your Beauty Products Last

I think another good tip is don't keep something that does not work for you. Most stores will take it back if you are allergic or the color was just all wrong for your complexion. If the store will not take it back share the love and pass it on to one of your friends or family members who could get some use out of it.

I also like my monthly subscription Ipsy because you can try full size or sample size products out first before you make the big splurge to buy it in the store or online. Here are a couple of my past month Ipsy glam bags to just get a feel for what comes in them and to me for $10 a month you can't beat it.
