sometimes…

biosource clarifying exfoliating gel or H20 sea mineral mud mask but never on the same night

Hey, you shouldn’t use St. Ives Apricot Scrub on your face. My aesthetician says there’s ground walnut shells in it which are too abrasive for your face.

Yeah, she told me not to use it at all, so I’ve been using the leftover on my arms. For your face, you’re supposed to use something with smooth microbeads like this: http://www.neutrogena.com/ProductsDetails_350.asp?lProductLineID=1

I’m calling BS on that.

Well, so says my aesthetician, and I trust her, so I don’t use it. At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter if you believe it or not, because it’s your skin, not mine.

I also started using Fancl Face washing puff about a month ago because a friend said that it made her complexion better. I’m not sure if it actually has made my skin better, but it’s good for exfoliation too.

Does anyone use BB cream?? Supposedly it’s really popular in Asia, especially in Korea.

Also, if you want a cheap facial scrub, aspirin mask works really well.

generic uncoated aspirin $3
honey $3
clear aloe vera gel $5

1. Put 5 aspirin in a small bowl and add a nickel size amount of warm water. Dissolve the aspirin.

2. Add a nickel size drop of honey and aloe vera gel. Mix together into a paste.

3. Apply onto face and wash it off after 15 minutes.
