alright people, have you ever heard of arbonne? yes, they're a company like avon. yes, i'm aware that i think it's a total pyramid type scheme thing. i don't care about that part. i'm not trying to sell the stuff. i'm just trying to find out how well the products work.
a friend of mine is selling it. she gave me all this crap to try for 3 days. it's like a bajillion steps everynight to wash and moisturize your face. i was really overwhelmed at first, but it's not really that much different than pro-active's 3 step system. so anyway... i'm in the market for a good face wash and moisturizer, so i told her i'd try it. i want to stop using pro-active because i've never had a zit problem *knocks on wood* and i think the stuff is super drying and probably can't be that good for your skin over long periods of time. i'm just terrified that if i stop using it completely, i'll grow zits.
like a farm.
on my face.
so i've been using the arbonne 3 thousand step thing for the past 3 nights. the moisturizer is HEAVY. i mean, i put it on at night and when i wake up in the morning, i can still feel it on my face. my skin looks nicer when i put my makeup on, but i think it's because it's so moisturized. i'm not necessarily sure that's a good thing. (is it?) i feel like i look dewy. i don't like looking dewy. if i wanted to look dewy, i would still wear cream foundations. i wear powder to cut the shiny look. i kind of feel like i look shiny... and greasy. and i feel kind of greasy, although that's not the right word at all. i think i just feel... oily? hell, i don't know. basically, i can FEEL the stuff on my face. i don't like feeling stuff on my face.
anyway, is that how this stuff is supposed to feel?! eventually if i keep using these products, will i turn into an oil machine? that's what worries me. and also, what do you wash and moisturize your face with? and what kind of skin do you have? i definitely have combination skin. if i try to use moisturizers that aren't oil free, my skin will tell me. i've used a lot of the garnier products for moisturizing my face, and i've really liked them. i wonder if i would like their face wash products?!?! anyway... talk to me people! and slynnro, i'm talking to you. this is right up your alley, right?
