WWIII

I’ve been waging a literal war against my skin for about 6 months now.  I’m not kidding.  I should be getting paid for all this work, effort and MONEY spent to get my skin in check.  I would say my skins been in boot camp if you will.

I recently had it confirmed by my dermatologist that I have mild rosacea on my inner cheeks as well as VERY sensitive skin.  Now, these two things don’t bode well for the makeup and product loving junkie that I am.  I’ve kinda known these two things for a while but like an idiot pretended they didn’t exist lol.

After accepting the painful truth about my skin I decided to do a complete overhaul of the products I was using in hopes to turn the tides for my skin.  So, that’s what I’ve been doing.  The crappy part about this is that I love to try new products.  Not only for myself but for my clients and in my kit.  I’m always looking for the next best thing.  Well, you can’t do that when you have skin issues like mine.  You’re asking for it and over the past few years I’ve been gettin it.

One of the products I’ve been loving is actually something I’ve been using now for about a year.  Bye Bye redness is a neutralizing correcting cream by IT cosmetics.  It covers redness like nothing I’ve ever seen before.  I’m serious.  This comes in one shade and can adjust to almost any skin tone.

This cream is very fluffy and lightweight but is also super creamy which I love.  This gives enough coverage that you could actually put this on alone and walk out the door.  I usually just stipple this on with a small duo fiber brush.  I use that brush because my skin gets red if you just look at it sideways.  The less pressure and rubbing I have to do the better.  I pat some on and swirl it in with my brush.

Even with my skin being uncooperative a lot of the time it does have its good days and good weeks even.  I have to stay on my regimen but if I do I have pretty good results.  Some days I even have no redness at all and other it’s like my face has been repeatedly flicked with rubber bands.   The bye bye redness cream is great under foundation or worn alone but I will say make sure you are good and moisturized before application as it can dry you out a bit and cling to dry patches a bit.  Not cute.

It’s also great for covering blemishes and pretty much anything unsightly.  If you have redness of any kind or mild rosacea like me you HAVE to get this product. I get mine at Ulta or you can order here!

It is on the pricier side at $32 for a tub but you get a good amount of product and a little goes a long way.  Totally worth it in my book.  I’ve not found anything that covers as well as this does along with all the other added benefits the cream has.  Anti-aging properties, peptides and collagen are just to name a few.

[I’ve used this on a lot of my clients and their jaws always drop when they see what a difference it makes.}

As for me I’ll continue to fight the good fight against my naughty skin and hopefully someday soon we will be on the same team.  I’ve got a good feeling.
