product crush....Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 3% Face Wash!

i really want to try the Peter Thomas Roth Line. it's prices scare me a little bit, but i'm from the group that will pay extra if it yields the desire results.

all i've been able to try so far is his Glycolic Acid 3% Face Wash. it was a tie between that or Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Face Wash. let's see...fight age or fight blemishes?

luckily, i knew that many of the ways to fight aging are just as effective on blemishes, so i chose to fight age. it's based around cell turnover-the more you exfoliate and stimulate new cells on your face, the less you visibly age and the clearer your skin will be.

i really like this face wash. you've heard my oily skin woes, so you know that not all washes are as hardcore as i'd like. i don't want a gentle face wash. i want to take a power hose to my face and make that oil haul tail! i don't mean to say that PTR's face wash is going to wreak havoc on less-oily skins, but this one does a great job of chasing my excessive oil away. my face feels clean but not tight, and it feels smoother with just a few uses. the purpose of this cleanser is to smooth and clarify, and i'm sold.

it's $32.00 for 8 oz, available at Sephora and Ulta.

there are other products that i can't wait to try, such as Lashes to Die For Night Time Eyelash Conditioning Treatment, Anti Shine Mattifying Gel, Pumpkin Enzyme Peel, and the Sulfur Cooling Mask.

have you tried any of this line?

product test drive.....Johnson's Baby Oil Body Wash

sorry i've been away, readers. i moved to a totally new state!

but i'm trying to get things back to normal....and part of that includes trying new products!

i've got dozens of shower gels. Victoria's Secret, Philosophy, Bath and Body Works. i should shower three times a day...i have enough to last me for years! still, sometimes i can't resist the urge to buy just one more. the attraction is usually the scent or the other benefits that it can offer. in this case, VERY soft, moisturized skin!

if you didn't have your body rubbed down with Johnson & Johnson products when you were a baby, i'm certain you've at least heard of them. they do a great job of making sure that baby's delicate skin stays soft, and they finally caught on adults want soft skin too.

Johnson's Baby Oil Body Wash is about as pampering as it gets. not only does it smell amazingly soft and clean (not like a nursery), but it leaves your skin silky. it promises that you'll keep the softness for 24 hours. it's tempting to leave my other gels behind, since none of them give me that kind of hydration. i love the way my skin feels and smells when i step out of the shower. it's also great to shave with!

you don't even have to hit the mall to find a great shower gel...just go to your local pharmacy or even Wal-mart and stock up on this stuff!
