Neutrogena® “Pore No More” Challenge

pores no more collection

Disclosure: These products were provided to me by Neutrogena for this challenge. I was not paid to write this post and all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I was asked to take the Neutrogena® “Pore No More” Challenge. For 7 days I would swap my normal skincare routine for the  Neutrogena Pore Refining Collection. Using the products twice a day to see if they could snap my pores into shape. s 4 steps to achieved a flawless and healthy-looking skin:

Step 1: Use NEUTROGENA® Pore Refining Daily Cleanser to wash off to remove all the toxins and dirt. I love gel cleanser and this one smells so refreshing and left my skin clean without drying it out.

Step 2: Use NEUTROGENA® Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser to get rid of all your dead skin. I like to use this cleanser at night. It ensures I have removed all the makeup, oil and dirt from the day. Its a very light exfoliant and I like that it worked to deep cleanse without irritating my skin.

Step 3: The NEUTROGENA® Pore Refining Toner provides an even deeper cleanse. I moisten a cotton pad and use this after cleaning to make sure my face is clean and ready for moisturizer. I LOVE this toner, it makes my skin feel amazing and doesn’t dry it out.

Step 4: NEUTROGENA® Pore Refining Moisturizer, the  last step of my daily routine. A really great moisturizer it’s feather light and absorbs immediately into my skin. My skin feels refreshed and moisturized without being weighed down.

Sorry the color is off, the first photo I took at night before starting my routine. But these photos are untouched and there has been no editing. You can see how my skin was a bit mottled at the start of the challenge and my pores were very visible.

I have been shocked and delighted to see how much smaller my pores look after just one week. On top of shrinking the appearance of my pores my skin is clearer and brighter. I am very impressed with the quality of this collection. And I love that the price point is doable even for the frugal beauty addict.

If you are plagued visible pores be sure to check out this collection. It’s amazing what you can do in just 7 days!

Get The Look: Amber Heard at the Calvin Klein Party

All eyes were on Amber Heard at last night’s Calvin Klein party in New York City, looking radiant in a little black dress. “The inspiration for Amber’s red carpet look came entirely from the sexy black dress and heels she had hanging in the bedroom,” said Burt’s Bees lead makeup artist Katey Denno.

“We emphasized her eyes with a purple shadow and an electric purple liner, followed by more than a few coats of black mascara to give the look more of a dramatic feel. She has beautiful alabaster skin, which we perfected with a bit of Vapour Organic foundation, and we emphasized her brows with just a bit of brown shadow”, said Denno.

“We followed it up by contouring her cheeks with a bit of creamy pink cheek cream from Kjaer Wes, which also added a nice ‘rosy’ hue. And to finish the look, I filled in her lips with the new Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands, and topped it off with a light layer of Burt’s Bees Lip Shine in Whisper (and patted the product into the skin to take away any shine!).”

Orange is the New Blue/Gray/Purple?

‘Orange is the New Black’ actress Dascha Polanco made a few New York Fashion Week appearances over the weekend, rocking a new hair shade. I’m not even sure what to call this. Is it blue? Purple? Gray? I don’t know….but I kind of like it!

I’m totally jealous of girls who can do something like this…and still look FABULOUS.

What do you think of her new look?
