If you watched my Instagram story a few days ago, you’d know that I did a semi-unboxing of my Roseroseshop haul. This is only my 2nd time ordering from them, and I must say, I had a better experience with customer service and shipping this time, yay!
After my semi-unboxing, I thought of not using the products first, because I promised to do an unboxing on my blog (and to get nice photos, it’s better if the products are unused lol). But then, the little bumps on my forehead were forming into acne…with a potential of pus coming out (sorry, TMI). So I decided to give the CosRx Acne Pimple Master Patch a try!
A few days ago, a rash appeared around my abdominal area. I did not know where it came from, it was super itchy and annoying, so I asked my friend’s sister, who is a dermatologist, for some help. Since I can’t have my rash checked up on that day, she suggested that I use some petroleum jelly first until she finds out what’s the cause of my rash was. That’s made me realize how petroleum jelly should be a staple for everyone, especially for beauty geeks (like me)!
For as long as I can remember, I didn’t have anything to call “my skincare routine”. I have always been the kind of girl who didn’t really care about looking good. I blame myself for being always around boys (at home, at school, and everywhere) that I started acting and thinking like them. There was a phase in my life where I would rather be a boy because it was sooo easy to be one, LOL.
Anyway, I was already struggling with my skin since I was 12. You know, because of puberty and all that shiz. I would always just use a facial cleanser, a toner and, sometimes, an anti acne cream to keep my skin from looking like a disaster. Having an oily and acne-prone skin back then, stocking up on cleansers and acne creams with a high salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide concentration was a must for me, especially when visiting the United States (because the Philippines, my first home, didn’t have a wide variety like the United States has). I would choose brands like Clean & Clear, Clearasil or Pond’s. They worked in drying up my acne, but they just never really got rid of them?
