Go Bold or Go Home

I love crazy bright colors, especially when it comes to makeup but the other day I went to Lawrence, Kansas to see Combichrist (headliner) and William Control (one of the opening acts).  The only concerts I had been to were rock and roll, i.e. The Who, so wild and crazy makeup was never needed and for everyday I like to go for a more natural, glittery look.  So, when this metal concert came up and I decided to go, I knew I wanted to wear some crazy bright eyeshadows and luckily the clothes I borrowed from my friend was my favorite color combination.  Here's what I did!
 Everything minus the shorts is my best friend's clothes.  But I did pink and green through my hair and on my eyes.  I, luckily, happened to have pink and green hair clip ins and so that worked out perfectly.  The biggest thing about me pulling off this look was confidence and bravery so if you want to try bold colors, just go for it!

Garnier Blackhead Clearing Scrub

This is a new product made by Garnier and it hit the shelves a few months back.  The thing that makes this scrub unique is that it has charcoal in it to help draw out the black heads and the salicylic acid helps to treat acne.  I use this scrub once a week because my skin is sensitive to really abrasive scrubs, such as this one.  I DO NOT use this with my Olay Pro X cleaning brush because I think the two exfoliating elements together would be too much for my skin to handle.  I have seen a good difference from when  I first posted about this, in my skin and the amount of black heads that I get.  I have skin that is very prone to blackheads, especially on my nose, so I was willing to try anything to help them go away.  Since my first post about this product I've had the proper time to road test it and give it a fully formulated opinion.  While there is not miracle to getting rid of blackheads sigh you can use products to help treat them and I think that this is one your should definitely have in your arsenal.

This or That: Clarisonic vs. Olay Pro X

I've decided to start doing a new thing on this blog, a segment that will henceforth be known as "This or That".  I will take two products that seem to do the exact same thing, but have slight differences.  I will let you know which one I personally think is best.  Does that sound alright to everyone? Okay? Okay. (Name that book!)
