Why Wait? Get Immediate Results!

Don’t we all secretly crave instant results when starting a new skin care regime? 
  1. USE ONCE.
We apply our fancy new product du jour, grab the rosary beads, and hope/pray that the miracle serum, elixir, cream, etc. will correct all of our skin care woes!

With products like serums, eye creams, and topical acne treatments, you usually have to stay the course for a prescribed period of time before results are evident. But don’t ya just love a product that shows and proves after just one use? Yea, me too! I’ve recently discovered two products with major “one-use WOW factor”. Of course, I MUST share:

This targeted treatment is a multi-faced approach to combating acne. It contains one percent salicylic acid for mild exfoliation, willow bark extract to reduce sebum secretion and kaolin to absorb excess shine. Because blemished skin is sensitive, calendula, arnica and sage are added to tone and moisturize, while peppermint and eucalyptus provide antibacterial benefits.

My battle with adult acne is constant game of block and tackle. I have accepted that this is my skin care cross to bear. Having said that, its uber important that I maintain a solid regime that attacks my stubborn adult acne from many angles. This includes using an acne fighting cleanser, toner, day time topical treatment, night time topical treatment, and arsenal of masks.

Erno Laszlo Beta Mask is the latest to join my acne maintenance arsenal. This is a deeply penetrating detoxifying mask that works overtime to combat the excess oil and sebum that lurks beneath the surface. Over the years my skin has done exceptionally well with clay based masks. The Beta Mask not only manages my oily acne prone skin with the power of clay, it also uses salicylic acid to exfoliate and a host of powerful ingredients that calm, tone, and moisturize my fiercely frustrated acne-plagued skin.

Beta Mask is a bit on the pricey side. Sorry darlings, but I’m rarely concerned with cost when it comes to a product that WORKS! Beta Mask comes in a box of six packets for $48. So technically that means six applications for $48. But real talk – my stingy self can stretch one packet and use it at least four times. I gave a packet to a girlfriend (who RAVED nonstop about the benefits) and she too was able to use one packet multiple times.

So get on off that $48 and hook yourself up. I doubt you’ll regret it!

Get instant gratification for tired. lackluster skin with this all-in-one dermabrasion-peel treatment that improves clarity, renews tone, and immediately uncovers a smoother more radiant complexion. 

Instant Gratification promises the instant smoothing and radiance benefits of professional microdermabrasion and a 30% Glycolic Peel in just five minutes. I don’t know about you but, Instant Gratification pretty much had me at the mention of “30% Glycolic“. I am a HUGE fan of Glycolic Acid products. GA is great at gently exfoliating and reducing the appearance of discoloration, fine lines, and wrinkles. I swear by GA. I have a couple of cleansers, masks, and at-home treatments that contain this powerful HOLY GRAIL ingredient. 

I am as pleased as fizzy infused pomegranate punch to add Beta Mask and Instant Gratification to my skin care line up!

Are there products in your arsenal that offer instantaneous results? I want to hear all about it. Leave a comment :)
