#FreshSkin with Neutrogena

Holidays, Season Changing, Cold Weather and Eating Junk....All things that can cause you to break out and ruin your skin.  Doesn't matter how old or young you are, breaking out is something we are all susceptible to.  Actually for me it seems like once I hit 30, my skin broke out more...Hormones?  Who knows what it is, but as teenager I had perfect skin...LOL  Now I tend to still have pretty good skin, but every now and again a break out/pimple creeps up on me.  The stress and eating of the holidays doesn't help my skin stay clear.  I find that its important to have a good skin care routine to help prevent those nasty break out and keep my skin looking young and fresh.  It really doesn't matter if you use fancy department store products or drug store buys, as long as you do something to keep skin clean and clear.  Me personally I prefer drug store products, not only are they accessible and affordable to everyone, but they work just as well as the fancy stuff.  

Neutrogena is one of those products you can find almost every where.  I am currently trying out their Pink Grapefruit Oil Free line of products.  These 3 products will hopefully get me through the holidays pimple free!!  

  • Oil Free Acne Wash - Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub, has small beads in it to help exfoliate gently and remove oil, dirt and any impurities.  The grapefruit scent is awesome which gives you a little pep and invigorate your skin.  After using it, my skin felt so smooth and fresh.
  • Oil Free Acne Wash - Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash, this also has the delicious scent, helps you wake up if  you use it in the morning.  I liked foaming action and leaves your skin squeaky clean!
  • Oil Free Cleansing Wipes - Pink Grapefruit Acne Prone Skin, although I don't have acne, these wipes do a the job of removing all the junk on your skin. The package doesn't say they are made to remove makeup, but they do!  I used them to get rid of makeup, dirt, oil and any other yucky stuff on my skin.  The do give your skin a little tingle with natural grapefruit extract.

Overall Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit products smell great and work really well.  My skin feels really clean and fresh after each use.  I plan on using them through out the entire holiday season and hope to be pimple free until the new year.   Can't have those nasty blemishes show up on all my holiday photos and outfit post.  If your in the market to try a new skin care routine for this season, check out Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit and all their other great products.  I love the affordability and availability of all their products.

A Little Country Never Hurts

Finally fall is here and although the weather hasn't gotten too cold in California, boot season is in full effect.  I have always loved boots, even as a little girl I always had a new pair of boots for the fall/winter months.  These past 2 weeks, I have been wearing boots everyday.  Mostly to hide my toes, who are in desperate need of a pedi...LOL  But you will never know underneath my boots!  These Dallas Western Boots from Maurices are the newest pair to my collection.  These boots are oh so comfy and very cute.  I love the dark brown color and western inspired style with out being too "country."   Last weekend there was a Fall/Halloween festival literally outside my building and wore my Dallas boots.  I walked for hours and felt no discomfort, the rubber soles makes the heels cushioned.  My fave detail is the braid wrapped around the boots.  Its the little details that make any thing special.  Maurices has lots other boots styles and cute clothes too.  Although they have no stores on the west coast, Maurices is available online. Check them out here, and some pics of me having fun in my Dallas boots! 


 Are you wearing your boots yet? What style of boots is your favorite for fall?
