First off, let me start out by saying I’ve struggled with breakouts and blackheads since my early teens and I think I officially tried just about ever product on the drugstore shelves. I’ve since sort of abandoned my anti-acne routine (although I still break out frequently) for one with more anti-aging benefits (hey, I’m getting close to 30!) but when I was offered a chance to test out a Clean & Clear Routine from Crowdsocial, I jumped at the chance to re-discover some of my favourites!
My skin sucks lately. Like, worse than when I was a teenager sucks. After years of having clear skin (with a minor breakout or two here and there) my skin has turned against me. I don’t know if it’s some weird combination of late-20’s hormones and being too lazy to wash my makeup off every night (don’t judge me) or what. Whatever’s causing it, I’m not happy about it. I’m 27 years old for gods sake, I should be worrying about anti-aging not acne! (That’s a myth, I know that’s a myth but I was hoping it might turn out to be true.)
It’s fall, it’s fall, it’s finally fall! And you know what that means, boots, scarves and most unfortunate of the three, dry skin. Boo! Thankfully, Aveeno Canada has us covered with their new Positively Radiant SPF 15 and Positively Radiant CC Eye Cream with SPF 25, which is available in 2 universal shades.
The past two weeks, my skin has been shrivelling up like a prune. Okay, maybe it’s not that bad but there’s been peeling, dry patches and definite signs of dehydration (hello, fine lines!) so these products showed up in my mailbox at just the right time!
I’m obsessed with skin care. I’m even more obsessed with natural, fair-trade and Canadian made skin care. That’s why I’m thrilled to share with you one of my new favourite brands, Fable Naturals. Fable Naturals is s small skin care company based in Vancouver, BC that’s focus is on healthy and fair-trade ingredients that give your skin everything it needs and nothing it doesn’t. They have pure and simple formulas and sustainable packaging which makes for a great combination of both eco-friendly and skin-friendly. Let’s look into a few things I was lucky enough to receive for a review, and then get to the giveaway!
