Confessions of a SkinCare Junkie 

For as long as I can remember I’ve been obsessed with skincare. Even as a teen I buying and trying every kind of skincare I could afford. I had moderate to severe acne and literally spent entire paychecks from Pier 1 Imports trying to fix it. I bought all the products I found in my InStyle: La Mer, Murad, Mario Badescu, SonyaDakar, frou frou small batch organic stuff, the list goes on and on… Literally any kind of face junk you can think of, I’ve bought it. I can barely remember finishing a single product let alone repurchasing a skin care regime over and over. Enter Renée Rouleau. I found her in a magazine where Emmy Rossum was singing her praises. So I tried it. I took her skin quiz [in Cali I was a 6, in Florida I am a 2]. It takes into account not only your skin issues, but how much you sleep, travel, the humidity level. And for 3+ years now, I have been using RR products. I’ve adjusted a few for the difference in climate + postpartum dryness, but overall I’ve stuck with the same products. NUTS. I am just obsessed. I love her blog and delightful pink hair. My favorite product is hands down the AHA Smoothing serum or maybe the sunscreen… It’s all so good. They have spectacular customer service and if you plan on spending over 100$ you can get a consult with one of her aestheticians!! 

Oh yeah and the best part! I’ve been told, like a few times, that I have beautiful skin  and I can’t tell you how good that feels. It’s practically tear inducing. Those who’ve battled long term difficult skin will totally understand what I’m talking about. 

Anywho. That’s my time. Comment with your fave skincare lines or products. Have you ever tried Renée Rouleau?! Do you want to now?! Do tell.
