The Truth About Unclogging Pores.....

It is the problem no one wants to talk about with your friends.  What do you use when your pore's are clogged and nothing seems to help??  You want smooth, beautiful skin, but you don't feel like you look your best.  So you cover it up with more makeup, which just clogs your pores more.  I finally found something that is helping me, and I am not afraid to spread the word.  It is Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub Deep Cleansing.  It was right there on the shelf at CVS all this time.  I got it home and immediatly fell in love with this product. 

I will admit, it was the spherical beads.  The product description claims to target what clogs the pores and clean away impurities...and that is exactly what happened.  I found in the past, some products were so harsh with ingredients and grit, it irritated my face, leaving behind red blotches.  Not Biore.  I applied just a quarter sized amount with a circulur motion that I have seem my facialist use, I rinsed, and what was left behind was squeeky clean, beautiful skin.  It is oil-free and is a salicylic acid acne treatment, which is a plus.  I still break out from time to time and this has helped with that as well.  I would recommend this product to anyone.  It is a FIND!!!

Is There Such A Thing As Too Many Purses???

The Perfect Purse
On a recent trip to Macy's at the Cottonwood Mall I found the perfect Michael Kors purse.  It was just the blue color I wanted it to be, it was small enough to wear to a concert without having to worry about misplacing it, and it had a strap I could wear across my body that was perfect.  The price was right and I was ready to check out when I stopped myself.  A little pang of guilt came over me.  I started asking all the usual questions.  Do I really need this??  Don't I have one simular at home??  Couldn't I use the money (even though it was a fabulous deal) for something else??  I guilted my way right to putting it back on the rack.  I walked away feeling good about myelf, but I knew in the back of my mind I would regret this moment for the rest of my life.  Sure enough, it happens.  I awake at one in the morning.  The usual questions come back.  What did I do??  How could I have left that purse at Macy's??  I wonder if it is still there??  I need to go right after work today and get it before I hurt the perfect Michael Kors Purse's feelings!!   Sometimes I consider what different fictional characters would do.  In this instance, I looked to Carrie Bradshaw.  Would she say no in the way of fashion in order to pay more money on her car loan??  Probably not, right.  And that is what gives me the permission to go and purchase that Michael Kors purse and not feel guilty anymore.   Am I alone on this??  Is there really such a thing as too many purses??  Help a sister out.......

Hugs, Kiki

A Summer Shimmer

How do you get a beautiful summer shimmer without looking like you just got out of a club??  I finally figured it out.

Combine your loose powder to set your makeup along with a shimmer powder.  I recently rediscovered a product that I love, Prescriptives *magic Liquid Powder.  I used it for a nighttime pool party and I loved the look, but it was a little too much for the daytime.  I decided to mix a little with my everyday loose powder and the results were amazing.  It was just right.  Shimmery in the sunlight, great coverage, and I didn't look like I just got done with an all night party.  I like to save the empty container.  Once I get the new one I mix about half of the product with about a quarter of the Presciptives powder.  This seems to be the best formula to achieve the look I want.  You can always adjust it to your preference.  Give it a try over the holiday weekend, I am willing to bet you are going to love the look.  Let me know how it works out for you, post your picture in the comments below.
