Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

Ifabbo/ Skin Care
Press Sample

As I was sitting down to write this post I realized it has been a while since I last had a facial. There was a time back when I didn’t have so many responsibilities, that I used to treat myself very often. Way back many, many years ago circa 1999 or so I went to a new spa in my area for a facial and the Esthetician did a skin analysis on me. One of the products she recommended I use was the dermalogica daily microfoliant, and I have used it on and off ever since.

The dermalogica daily microfoliant is a rice-based powder exfoliating powder that is activated upon contact with water and gentle enough for daily use.  Now that my skin is under control, I use this occasionally in my routine and daily the week before mother nature comes to cause havoc on my hormones. That routine has kept the monthly breakouts at bay. 
The area around my nose and my cheeks are the spots that can get congested, the microfoliant helps to remove the dead skin cells and keep the pores clear.

At first glance the powder seems very fine, it is soft but once activated with water you will feel a bit of the gentle grit. It is not harsh at all, but just enough that you can feel it working.

This exfoliating powder also contains salicylic acid which aids in helping to clear and prevent pimples. My skin never feels raw or looks red after using this exfoliant. I’m sure the green tea and oatmeal in it are helping to keep things calm.

The addition of a rice powder exfoliant has been a game changer in my skin care routine, if you are not using one yet I highly recommend you give it a try.  If you have a opportunity to have a skin care analysis or face mapping done by at a Dermalogica spa or authorized retailer I highly recommend that also. I was amazed at what the Esthetician taught me about my skin.

RocksBox Jewelry Subscription Review

A lot of us have been all over beauty related subscriptions boxes. Have you noticed more of these theme box subscriptions popping up? In true product junkie form I would like to try a few of them. Recently I have seen everything from the standard beauty ones we are already familiar with such as birchbox and ipsy to conscious box and other healthy living related subscriptions, all the way to a bark box subscription box for dogs. Why are we so attracted to these? Well for me it’s simple pay a little (most range from $10-20 that’s nothing more than a few Starbucks drinks) get a lot. Although boxes vary in the size and quality of samples being able to try a wide variety of products without committing is appealing. With that I am introducing RocksBox to you a new subscription box for a fashion or jewelry lover. 

So how does it work? Similar to other subscription boxes you signup, take a style quiz and customize your preferences. Then each month you will receive 3 pieces of designer jewelry worth on average $200.  The perfect subscription for a fashionista you can try out the pieces without commitment. Love something,you can purchase it for 20% off retail. Anything you decide you don’t want you just send back in the postage paid envelope and a new box will be sent as per your subscription.  Each box comes with your three items individually wrapped with a detailed description of each item with the price. There is also a feedback card in each box, if you keep an item you list it on the card and it will be charged to the card you have on file. 

Subscription Options: 

12 Months $15 ($180 upfront)
6 Months $17 ($100 upfront) 
Monthly $19 ($19 month) 
*Free shipping both ways 
**20% off retail when you buy any item from your box 
***Ability to earn purchase credits for referrals

I have had the subscription for 6 months and have been very pleased with the items I have received to try. Below are some pics of some of the pieces from my most recent box.
