Trying It Now: BeautyMint
I am in no way being sponsored to write this post, just sharing my recent find and what I think of it so far.
Have you heard of BeautyMint? (If not, I am sure you've at least heard of JewelMint, StyleMint, or ShoeMint?) Basically, it is the Skin-Care line created in partnership with a "Beverly Hills Celebrity Dermatologist" and Jessica Simpson.
What I've tried before: ProActiv - I have adult acne outbreaks, especially since being off birth control. Thank you hormones! So I used ProActiv for a while, too long even. Don't do it! It is very damaging and harsh to the skin! I've used the MaryKay Timewise System. I used to be a consultant. I'd be willing to try it again if I don't like BeautyMint. I also sampled the Somme Institute's MDT5…and that stuff…Ahhhhh-Mazing. But it is out of my budgetary reach right now. (*tear*) So I finally responded to one of the "deals" in an email and got my first box of BeautyMint (a 5 Piece Set.) I've been using it for almost a week. I have some good things to say, but the jury is still out. The highlight of using it so far is that I've always had flaky, dry skin in the creases of my nose, and it is COMPLETELY gone. I'm amazed. I've seriously used prescription strength lotion from the dermatologist I see here in NYC with no relief…and in one week…gone. On the other side, I have been having some breakouts…so not sure if that is just my skin purging itself of the impurities or what. I'll let you know later in the month whether I decide to keep using it or try something different. Do you have a skincare line that you love? Would love more options!
