Every Thursday Rachael Robbins brings you the best of her DD’s. Except when she decides to bring a D instead.
When I was younger, I thought “the greatest thing about being in my 30’s will be never getting another annoying, week-ruining zit ever again!!”. Yeah, right. When I reached my 30’s, guess what happened? The zits kept coming!!!! Now I had to battle zits AND wrinkles! So while I was laying awake suffering from jet lag, in some hotel, I got sucked into the Proactiv infomercial. I love infomercials, so it didnt take much for me to pick up the phone and order! And you know what? That stuff really works! So now I’m happily zit free thanks to Proactiv. But the other day I went to the dermatologist to get some Botox. I had no make-up on and she asked me what the heck I’ve been abusing my skin with!! When I told her proactiv, she promptly told me that I was abusing my quasi mature skin by using it every day. She suggested cutting back to every other day and using a gentler scrub for “mature” skin in between. And the scrub she suggested is Anti-Agng Buffing Beads For Face and Body by Peter Thomas Roth.
I know this is not a Drugstore Deal, but for $36 (the price of plenty of Olay products) you get a HUGE 8.5 oz bottle! And you only need the smallest amount to give your face a good scrub! PLUS it can be used as a body wash! Hello….travelers dream product!! So, I know I’m straying from the local drugstore, but I do believe on my heart I am bringing you a deal, nonetheless!!
Here’s what the company says about this yummy product:
“Based on the same formulation as the Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel, this effective scrub uses glycolic acid complex and salicylic acid to exfoliate dead skin cells, stimulate cellular turnover, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Botanical brighteners help give skin a refreshed tone, while ultra-fine jojoba beads gently refine skin’s texture for a smoother, youthful appearance.”
It smells yummy, not too perfume-y. Removes make-up. And leaves my skin feeling smooth and moisturized. So for this week, indulge me while I share a new NON Drugstore Deal with you, and next week I promise to get you back into the aisles of CVS!!
Any other ladies out there with me on the magic of Peter Thomas Roth?
