Update 4/9/14: Innarah amazingly sent me full-sized versions of the other items, so I updated the photos. They also sent a product I hadn’t tried before, so I’ll review that separately.
When last we talked about my skin, it was in excellent condition. I must have jinxed it, because shortly after writing that, I started to notice weird, bumpy pimples springing out on my upper cheeks. And a field of zits broke out on my chin and refused to go away (and they weren’t even hormonally induced!). So when someone from Innarah skin care reached out to me about trying some of their products, I knew that I had nothing to lose! (Even though I just keep thinking of Inara!!)
I know that it was just a fluke of proximity, but I received the products the day after they were mailed out. That’s unheard of. And inclined me to feel favorably towards them. BUT, would they live up to these favorable feels?
One good thing about Birchbox is definitely their Birchbloggers program. I was lucky enough to win a full-sized OmniPotent Duosity Hair Treatment ($25), the second time I’ve been selected by them.
I may have played off of the, “I was unemployed for 5 months and my hair wasn’t cut for 6 months and I could use the hair treatment despite it finally being cut” angle, but hey, it worked! (No it didn’t. They must do these at random.)
And it’s true. Despite finally cutting my hair at the end of December, the very next day I was still seeing split ends. And I’m talking the kind of split ends that are so bad, you don’t realize the two strands you’re seeing are actually from one hair, because they go up so high. Most of these are on the ends of my hair that still have highlights in them, and I know the bleach damages hair, but I haven’t had it redone in over a year.
Anyway, I digress.
Whenever anyone talks about over-the-counter options to treat adult acne, La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo invariably comes up. Back when I was still treating my product-induced breakout, but after I had discovered Clarins Lotus Treatment Oil and calmed the worst of my breakout, I was looking for something else to use to treat the stubborn zits and bumps that loved me so much, they didn’t want to get lost.
