Pinterest Stupidity #6

Let’s start today’s installment with this little gem, shall we?! I’m sure this girl is very pretty, but come on people! What the fuck is all of this glittery blood paint?! Next, her neck looks WAY to long, and some vampire is likely to take her for her next meal. Look out, Edward or whatever his name is will be sniffing on ya. As a side note, this chick needs to eat a cheeseburger.

Acne fightin’ woman

I used to be one of those girls that could jump in the shower, do her hair and get out of the house.

I’ve never worn makeup, so that didn’t slow me down. My dad, the OLW, frowned upon it. He always said I didn’t need it, I was pretty enough. (Keep in mind, he may or may not have been under the influence of cannabis during this conversation. My mother swears he wasn’t, but I’ve seen pictures of myself. He was high.) Needless to say, I’ve worn makeup a handful of times in my life; graduation day, my brother’s wedding, my first date with my first real boyfriend and probably another date I got gussied up for.

To this day, my co-workers complain that I don’t know what it’s like to spend fifteen minutes on makeup that you spend an arm and a leg for. And they’re right, I don’t. Never have. Until now…

I guess it’s not real makeup… but I’m buying adult acne wash, cream and pad thingies, dark eye circle remover and concealer and some fancy sugar body scrub.

What the hell is happening to me?! My body is failing at the prime age of 29. Instead of living it up, I’m browsing the aisles of Wal-Mart for acne cream. I never had a lot of acne in my teen years, but now I have them popping up everywhere in my old age. What gives?! I wash my dang face! I don’t roll in the dirt, I don’t rub pizza on my face. What more do you want you stupid zits?!

So yea, now instead of just getting up and hopping in the shower I’m doing a 10-point inspection and treatment process. It’s like a dirty old used car that has to be treated before hitting the road. I’m not a prissy girl… really, I’m not. I just don’t want to have giant zits sprouting on my face.

Hmphf. Getting old is a bitch.

L’Bri Skincare Trio Giveaway

I’m always looking for a great moisturizer! My face gets so try and I’m ordering some of this right now! Enter now to win some for yourself!

In general, as an industry, skin care and cosmetics sell a lot on fluff and pretty packaging, sweet scents, and supermodels. Consumers see the advertising and purchase products without realizing the products may contain pore-clogging waxes, lanolin, drying alcohols, mineral oils, artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, and other potentially harmful ingredients.

 

The first item listed on a label is the products primary ingredient.. For example, many skin care products list water as the primary ingredient. Water is okay, but aloe vera is better. L’Bri thinks that everyone would agree, especially anyone who has tried it, that aloe vera is better for your skin than water. For this reason, they suggest looking for skin care products that list aloe vera rather than water as the basic ingredient.

Donna’s Deals and More had the opportunity to try their Combination Skin Care Trio.

Their Deep Pore Cleanser is very light and my face feels very clean, not tight at all after washing. And I love the moisturizer! It takes a tiny drop and my face is super moisturized. You can see a huge difference. Not only is my face clearer, but it is more bright and has a glow to it. I have always used aloe vera on wounds and even drank it for health reasons. My mom drank it when she was going through chemo. I know the health benefits and can’t believe it took me this long to find these amazing products.

Everyone can get FREE samples too! Just head HERE and pay for S&H!

Your selection of free L’BRI Pure n’ Natural samples include the cleanser, freshener, and moisturizer contained in a Customized Skin Care Trio, Eye Repair Gel, instant face lift Facial Masque, Exfoliating Face & Body Scrub and Rejuvenating Enzyme Facial Peel. Sample sizes are for a 7 to 10 day supply.

One lucky reader will be receiving their trio of the basic skin care cleanser, freshener moisturizer! Just enter the rafflecopter below. Good luck!
