You guys. I was having a terrible skin day (more aptly described as a terrible skin weekend) and cheered myself up by purchasing all the skincare products I've been eyeing for months. Of course, by the time everything arrived my skin was alright again, so they instead served to cheer me up while I was ill these past couple weeks. It's nice how treating oneself every once and awhile can make the crappier parts of life slightly less crappy.
This splurging consisted of an assortment of facial care products from Mountain Rose Herbs (which I first heard about through a blog guest post elsewhere) and an 85% natural perfume oil sampler set from MCMC Fragrances. The hidden ingredients of mass manufactured perfumes have been freaking me out a bit lately. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with my shampoo-free attempt.
I am actually loving smearing green mud on my face on a regular basis. There's something about drying French clay pinching the face that convinces my gullible mind that it's "working." So far, these two approaches below have been working to increasingly soften my skin, without too many/any artificial ingredients. So that's a start to calming my paranoid self.
