L’Occitane Almond Delicious Tummy

Monday, July 14th, 2008

Cellulite! Most women are haunted by it! Yes, even thin women!

It’s a skin condition that makes the skin dimpled or look like orange peels. It’s caused by large fat cells that pulls the skin thus creating the dimples. The usual problem areas are the stomach, thighs and buttocks.

Many products and medical procedures have been developed to address this problem. Since most women are afraid of undergoing painful and expensive medical treatments, they’d rather buy products that can aid in their problem areas. Slow results, cheap and safe!

From the very first application, the skin is softer and more supple. With continued use, the appearance of the skin improves—it’s noticeably smoother and firmer.

Philosophy Acne Kit

Saturday, March 29th, 2008

Everyone of us has always been haunted by pimples, mild acne or even major acne. It is not only in puberty age does one encounter acne, but until adulthood. It is such a pain to have those pimples and blemishes. Once an area has been treated, another area will be infected. It’s like a vicious cycle.

Going to the dermatologist may be the best solution, but not everyone can afford laser treatments and dermatologist exclusive medicine. A lot still buy from cosmetic counters and drugstores. Even if the results from these are slow just as long as the product works.

Philosophy is actually a nice brand. I’ve always used their shower gels and lip gloss and now they offer a four-step approach to treating acne that is benzoyl peroxide free (I presume no stinging XD):

philosophy acne Step 1 - suppress excessive oil production, Step 2 - shed the pore wall (exfoliate), Step 3 - help sanitize the skin to protect against bacteria, and Step 4 - seal the skin to help keep the good treatments in and the bad elements out. The result? Clear, glowing skin that’s free from blemishes and impurities.

Set includes a 3.3 oz On A Clear Day Super Wash For Oily Skin, 1 oz On A Clear Day Blemish Serum for Adult Acne, 1 oz On A Clear Day Hydrogen Peroxide Cream, and a 1 oz On A Clear Day Protection Cream.
