Skin Savers: Le Blanc’s Beauty & ScentStation Tamanu Ultra Healing Soap and Serum

I had clear skin for most of my youth. Unfortunately, in my junior year of high school, I had a really bad acne breakout. It really affected my self-esteem. (Those who follow me from my old blog would know that I refrained from posting photos of my face because of this.) I tried many different anti-acne products. Unfortunately, my acne is cause by hormonal issues. So, topical remedies can only go so far with curing my acne. As I got older, my skin has been on a rollercoaster ride. One moment, it’s clear. The next, I have a bad acne breakout. It’s really tough. Continue reading “Skin Savers: Le Blanc’s Beauty & ScentStation Tamanu Ultra Healing Soap and Serum”

Skin Savers: Zenutrients Softening Body Scrub (Argan, Chamomile, & Lavender) + Skin Firming Cream (Kelp & Ginger)

Summer is here and the weather has been scorching hot! It is important that we amp up our skincare routines to protect ourselves from the heat – and not to mention, the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun which could lead to skin damage. Yikes!

I’m starting a new blogging series called “Skin Savers”, wherein I will share the skincare products that I have been loving lately. I was never really into skincare up until recently. I’m rather lazy when it comes to sticking to a routine. However, I’m not as young as I used to be and my skin issues are becoming more and more difficult to ignore. So, early this year, I made a resolution to myself to start taking better care of my skin. I hope I can fight my laziness and adhere to a strict regimen. Wish me luck!

To start of the series, I’m beginning with two of my ultimate favourite skin saving finds: the Zenutrients Softening Argan, Chamomile, and Lavender Body Scrub + Skin Firming Kelp & Ginger Cream Continue reading “Skin Savers: Zenutrients Softening Body Scrub (Argan, Chamomile, & Lavender) + Skin Firming Cream (Kelp & Ginger)”
