Okay so I think the main quest of a woman and men too is great skin care. What is good for your skin? What won’t break me out? What won’t break the bank? Well I am one person that has been on this quest for YEARS. It’s been a nightmare! In high school I had pretty good skin, I really didn’t have to think about it and I used products (St. Ives) that gave me good results and never broke me out. Now back then I could sleep with make up on then wash my face the next morning, pretty much use anything over the counter and not break out it was like I had the skin of steel! Then I turned 24 and all that changed. I kept using the same products but then my face blew up! It was all this crazy acne EVERYWHERE on my face. It was horrid and embarrassing. If you have dealt with skin like this then you know how it feels to not even want to leave the house because you just don’t want people looking at you ugh… that’s what was going on with me. I tried sticking with the same products I had always used but I would get just severe reactions, more breakouts, my face literally hurt and it just kept getting worse and worse. I literally spent thousands (I just threw up in my mouth) on over the counter products, medications, facials you name it I’ve tried it. I had been talking (more like whining) to my friend  Pam about what to use and what was going on with my face. She had been using Philosophy and told me how amazing it was. It  made her skin feel so different and her skin can be combination/sensitive and it never irritated her. At this point I was using Mychelle (good stuff btw) and was getting good results but my skin was still acting up a tad. Finally for my birthday she sent me a b day kit from Philosophy that had their Purity face wash, bath gel and lip gloss. I said to myself this is the time to try it, I have been seeing infomercials and had been hearing from other people who have used it the amazing results they had been getting from using it over time.

WOW is what I said in the shower! I could tell after the first use this stuff was different. There is a cleanser and toner in Purity and it made my skin feel amazing! After one try I was hooked and began ordering like crazy! (I wouldn’t recommend this if you don’t want to go broke LOL) I was on their website getting their moisturizer, peels, retinol EVERYTHING!! Let me tell you, for what you get and the quality of these products it’s worth every penny. You don’t have to use much of it to get the results and to have your skin look so different. Immediately I could tell my skin was calming down and Philosophy does exactly what it says it will do on the box. Whether you need to get control of your acne, take care of fine lines, you have dry/oily skin, uneven skin tone there is something for you to use and it WILL work. I have been using Philosophy for about 3 years now and it’s like I have a different face I swear. Nothing in these products cause me a reaction and I have seriously sensitive skin that will break out at the drop of a dime (it’s ridiculous actually) and so far so good after 3 years. I am a Philosophy girl (it’s a secret club) for life! Thank you thank you thank you!!! I would really recommend that you try these if you are at your wit’s end with your skin issues or you just want to try something different. I’ll post on the bottom of this blog my daily and weekly ritual with Philosophy and keeping it simple has been the way to go! 🙂
