have you ever had a skin crisis? I did, and it made me literally want to have a zipper and take my skin off.
I recently tried and reviewed the Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation, see the review Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation Review.
It had quite a bad effect on my skin and I needed to put on the brakes with my cosmetics to get my skin back into a healthy and happy state. I normally use several different brands, but in this case I used only 3 products for the duration of 2 weeks ( and oy veh, no make up).
For Toning: The Pai Rice Plant and Rosemary Toner. It is completely alcohol free and was created to sooth and calm irritated skin, especially oily or combination skin. It contains "living waters" that were directly extracted from the plant. I am not sure what "living waters" are, but they sure do nice things for the skin. I spritzed it directly onto my face and gently patted it in. It really soothes, and smells comforting and calming. My skin was in stress, and this helped to de-stress it with a gentle cooling effect. The Rosemary has helped to sooth and re-balance my super congested skin.
For Moisturizing: the Pai Geranium and Thistle Combination Skin Cream. This, even more than the toner, is a little miracle worker. Initially I was not sure if I should use it at all, as it is made with oils, but looking at their website this is specifically designed for combination skin, so on the face it went. And it is oh so nice! It moisturizes very well, but does not overwhelm the skin. It just gives enough, not too much. It soothes and balances, so the skin does not get into oil overdrive. I am sure all you oily skin girls out there have experienced this. In addition to the Geranium and Thistle it contains lavender, manuka and basil.
Using these two I was able to almost forget about my skin, because it was recovering, relaxed and happy-er.
After 2 weeks most of the bumps are gone and my skin is almost back to where it was.
I highly recommend Pai Skincare for all skin types, but especially for you sensitive ladies.
Go check out their website: Pai Skincare.
