review ~ bodyshop VS burt’s bees

burt's bee VS bodyshop showdown.


i fall into the unlucky group where i have acne prone skin :( my goal is to have flawless skin with no spots, no blemish, no scars and no redness. i know it sounds impossible, but every girl can secretly wish rite?

anyway, i'm constantly looking for something that will control my breakout, which i get all the time not just totm.

BAD: i tried the bodyshop tea tree oil and it didn't work at all. it's didn't control future blemishes and it didn't help combating existing blemishes as well. it's a yucky product and deserves to be thrown away.

GOOD: burt's bees natural acne solutions targeted spot treatment works wonders. my acne dried up the very next day and the scars are minimal compare to what i usually get. 

packaging is horrible on both cos' i can't control how much to pour out. dislike the scent on both, but i'll bare with burt's bees since it works. 

received samples from target. i think they ran out. 


sonia kashuk pouch, federic fekkai shampoo + conditioner, pantene shampoo, nivea lotion, neutrogena natural lip balm(can’t wait to try this), revlon lipgloss.

hi cushyblushy ^___^" I just saw your tweet! thanks for joining my giveaway! by the way... if you're having skin problems, mind me recommending something? try La Roche Posay's Effaclar line - I swear by this stuff! especially this cleanser

It's gentle but deep cleanses and it balances the pH of your skin, which helps control breakouts. if you'd like, definitely try it out! it has worked wonders for me!

Thanks for visiting my blog, cushy! I've never tried oils to control acne, but I do love clay masks, as stellarvixen pointed out. :D

cushy said...

yup, i used clay mask twice a week(if i remember). using queen helene mint julep. read good reviews about it for cheap. i happily concur with those reviews :)

wifluvelle said...
