Not sure if I'm not being a bit overshary by posting this. Whatevs. When I was young (the ugly phase after the cute phase pics I posted a few weeks ago), I had really bad skin. I'm sure people won't remember me as pizza face but from about 13 - 19 I was zitty mczit zit from pimpleville and I hated it. I used all sorts of face products starting with it-made-it-worse Clearasil, moved onto Johnson's ''Clean-and-clearly-out-of-control'' lie in a bottle range then Innoxa, Garnier, Ponds (what the fuck was I thinking?) Geisha or something and others - zonke! Until my mom took me to a dermatologist after the umpteenth time my grandmother asked me why I am so ugly (old black people have NO qualms).
The situation improved after the dermatologist and then things just naturally got better. For years I used Body Shop products, which worked for a while until my hormones were like ''oh no you don't'' again and I became the break out girl. Again. Anyway, in the last couple of months I've been testing a few products which work for some and not others - I am now using Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit facial wash and daily scrub and a Givenchy moisturiser. The girl who was selling it to me at Red Square yesterday said the Neutrogena moisturizer might dry me out (not sure if she was telling the truth or trying to get more commission, I ain't complaining though). I've never considered designer moisturizers but I can't afford the one I really want from Guinot. I really hope it works. Will let you know how it goes. Assuming you care of course.
