Breakdown in 1, 2, 3…

October 22nd… I was in the bathroom after work, looking at my shiny, blotchy, tired, blemished face and lost it. I’ve had enough, at the ripe age of 25 years old, my skin had a right to not be hurt by harsh chemicals, a right to breathe, and most importantly, it had a right to … Continue reading

So after realizing what a dummy I’ve been about the Noxzema, I decided to do some research on the mask of magnanimity which has stopped working… Well duh, It stopped cause it was meant for all the problems the Noxzema had created. Since my skin wasn’t oily anymore, using this product on the daily was … Continue reading
