I woke up Thanksgiving morning and as I let out a big yawn I felt *that* sore pain. Nope, not from working out but a distinct soreness that was deep under my skin and I knew exactly what it was. It was a huge undergrounder cystic breakout just waiting to make it’s appearance. Best of all it was right on the edge of my left nostril opening. Fantastic visual right?! This one hurt so bad way deep down brewing under my skin that I knew if left alone it may grow to block my entire nostril opening! Super FAB visual right?
Well, here it is Sunday night and 90% of the soreness/pain is gone and the potentially horrendous breakout never made it’s way to surface!! How did I kill it “in it’s tracks”?? With my #1 secret sauce that works for me 99.9% of the time, Bare Minerals Blemish Treatment. http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml;jsessionid=UTADGEE455NY4CV0KRRRPIQ?id=P202656&_requestid=139718
I know i’ve been talking about this product for years & years & years but it is seriously my MIRACLE product!! Anyone who suffers from cystic/hormonal acne knows how embarassing and self-conscious it can make you feel. Plus I had a lot of events, friends and family to see this past holiday weekend! Even with all the makeup and airbrushing equipment I have you can’t exactly conceal a huge breakout blocking one of your nostrils!
What I love most about this product is that it really works. If you’re like me and not exactly in your teen years and find yourself fighting aging, wrinkles AND hormonal breakouts you probably know that what works for teenagers does nothing for us. Another thing I love about this product is that it works without stinging or drying out yours skin. It looks like a loose mineral powder and is easily disguised under your regular makeup. At night time you won’t go to bed frightening your husband/SO/partner with white polka dots all over your face!
If you don’t have this product yet this is the time to try it out! If you’re already a fan there’s no better time than NOW to stock up on it because they are re-packaging it and it’s on sale at Sephora, Nordstrom and probably any other store that sells it. Even if you’re like me and get the occasional breakout this is definitely something you want on hand in your “arsenal”. You just never know when a mean and angry breakout will sprout out at the most inopportune time!
Muah! XOXO Tiffany 🙂
**Just added 4/2012: I had no idea what “severe” hormonal cystic acne was until I started to experience them this past year. This product as much as I still love and use it didn’t really help with the severe ones.
