SK II Facial Treatment

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by SK-II through their partnership with POPSUGAR. While I was compensated by POPSUGAR to write a post about SK-II, all opinions are my own.

In my mind perfect skin just sort of happens, no work is needed. You know, it’s in my genes! Well, I also believe in fairies and unicorns (please don’t try to tell me otherwise). In the real world, we know that perfect skin requires good products and daily work. It’s something that you start doing before the wrinkles and the puffy bags form and commit to a cozy spot on your face (read: a good skin care regimen should be in place before you turn 40).

But if your mother wasn’t like mine and didn’t drill the importance of taking care of your skin, I’ve got good news for you. There are a few products on the market that can help you along the way and improve your skin regimen even if you are late to the party.

How many of you beauties purchase cosmetics from the drugstores? I will be the first to say that I do, and I know that many of you do too. Yeah, I order online and shop at Sephora, Ulta and at the beauty counters but some of my favorite goodies come from the drugstore. As much as I love getting cosmetics from the drugstore, I have to admit it can be a bit of a headache at times.

Unlike places like Ulta, Sephora and beauty counters, when you shop for cosmetics at the drugstore there are no samples or experts to give you direction, you are on your own. Many times, especially if buy foundation, it can take a quite a few annoying purchases to get it right (thank God that places like Walgreen’s allow returns). What seems to be a match in the store can prove to be a total mistake at home. For all of you beauties that feel my pain, I have great news! COVERGIRL has created an app that is designed to take hustle out of shopping for cosmetics. View Full Post
