Unblemished Review – Day 10

I meant to update after a week, but life happens. Corporate life has been taking up too much of my time recently.

Anyway, 10 days ago I started to use Unblemish from Rodan & Fields twice a day. Every morning and night I would wash my face and use the toner. I only used the creams/lotions at night. My face is so oily to begin with, I can risk lotion before makeup.

***I am not a consultant. Just giving my honest feedback***

I have very pleased with the results! My face has cleared up considerably in the last 10 days. By no means will I go makeup free, but there is less to coverup!

The wash and toner leave my face feeling clean. Surprisingly, the lotions at night do not increase the oiliness of my face. I feel like my makeup lays nicer now, and I have more confidence.

Spring in Near!!

I live in the northeast. While it’s technically spring, it has still been cold and snowy. Tonight’s low is only 57! Tomorrow it is supposed to be close to 80 degrees!!

I suffer from anxiety, but my anxiety is always worse in the winter months. The idea of being in the warm air is a welcomed relief. I see the light at the end of the tunnel.

One thing I LOVE about spring time is sleeping with the windows open. It’s just the right temperature to let the fresh air in as we sleep. I like to believe I am “airing the house out.”

Spring also means it’s time to get the boys outside! Let them run their energy off and get away from the screens in their lives.

Can you tell I love the warm weather? I think I’m a southern girl at heart!

I know not to get too excited, because Monday it will be back to 35 degrees. Welcome to the northeast!

Acne in my 30s – Unblemish

I’ve always had skin problems. Growing up, my teenager years were filled with concealer and trips to the dermatologist.

Some of the remedies from the doctor worked, but I felt they weren’t good to use long term.

Tanning beds helped, but now that I’m older I’d rather steer clear of them.

I had a lot of success with Proactiv, but it bleached my towels and pillowcases. After having kids, I didn’t want to risk having the chemicals near their skin.

I have been searching for a skincare line that can help my acne. I have tried Unblemish from Rodan & Fields, but not consistently.

I’m going to give Unblemish one more go before I call it quits. Here is my before picture:

Please note- I do not sell R&F. I am receiving no compensation from this review.

I will follow up soon. Hopefully with a good update.

Feel free to share any products that have helped you!

Day 1 – I modified the modifier

Spoiler alert – I finally worked out today.

I’ve been feeling sluggish recently. I know I’m out of shape. I look it and I feel it. I feel old.

I’ve said more times than I can count that I would start working out and eating healthy. I have have more day 1s than I’m willing to admit.

This time, it will be different. I know I’ve said that before as well, but it will be this time. Why will it be different? I’m allowing myself to mess up. I’ve built “cheat” meals into my plan. What? That’s not allowed? Says who?

I’ve also committed to myself that I will start to work out. Not everyday, but I will workout. I will show up. Even if that means I modify, I will show up.

At the end of the day, the only person I have to impress is myself. The only person I will be letting down is myself. I refuse to stop letting down the one person that I should never let down.

I Have The Class Biter

I’ve been on the other side. Picking up my oldest, I would be signing at least one “accident” report a week. Some weeks, he would get bit two or three times.

Well, roles are reversed. When I picked the boys up from daycare today, they informed me that my little one bit 5 times today! I was flooded with dread. I now have the kid that everyone will label as the bad kid.

Let’s be clear, I saw this coming. At home when he gets angry he has bitten me. He has bitten his dad, and his brother. I tried the “bite him back” method. Needless to say it hasn’t worked for my tiny tot.

My little guy himself has been bitten. He knows what it feels like, but he continues this behavior.

I’m at a loss for what to do. Out Daycare has a policy that if they bite so many times in a day, they have to go home. I need to stop this habit now. Anyone have any advice??
