woe is me.

It is around 3:40 in the morning and although I am tired, I cannot fall asleep because the boy ripped a few big ones in our room while I was brushing my teeth. -___- Thanks.

I decided to kill time by blogging while I let ventilation take its course.

Since Tambooty made a fabulous list of all the recent purchases she made, I decided to share a few of mine.

I had some free time before grabbing lunch today, so I decided to wander the aisles of Walgreens. I love Walgreens because no matter which Walgreens you walk into, it always feels like home because they all are exactly the same. Wherever you are.

I am almost out of my daily facial scrub. The Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub. I love this stuff. But I decided to venture out to a different brand.

This usually runs for about 6-7 dollars, depending on where you buy. Walgreens will get you at 7-8. Target will get you at arouned 5-6 dollars. Money has been pretty much non existent so I decided to look for something cheap, yet effective. (Money is so non existent that 8 bucks is too much for a scrub. -__-)

This stuff was 3 bucks and it had that nice Allure Magazine "stamp" of approval... I was sold. I decided to give this a try. I'll let you know how it works out.


I bought this for the boy because he was complaining of a burning itchy scalp. :/ Hopefully this will help. It has coal tar in it. Cool huh?
I bought some snap on hair rollers from I haven't received them in the mail yet so I have yet to try them. I've seen ricebunny or pursebuzz use these to help set their curls. It seemed effective and a good way to section out your curls. They were really cheap at 2 something a package.

After searching for tea tree oil products (after amy reccommended using it for cystic acne), I stumbled acrossed a benzoyl peroxide gel containing tea tree oil from DDF (a brand I had never heard of until this discovery). I went on make up alley to research and I found that they had pretty good reviews on their products. I was tempted to just purchase their scrub and b.p./tea tree oil scrub but I didn't want to spend money on a full tube. So I found that sephora carried this sampler kit. Perfect. I got this for 35 dollars. (I know, I know... I bought 3 dollar face wash because I am broke, yet I spend 35 for this "tackle box". Its because I bought this tackle box that I had to skimp out on face wash. Blahblah ok bye) I guess its a fair deal to really try out their products before shelling out 30 dollars for a full sized tube or something you dont' know will work for you skin. Anyway, I've been using this for about 3 days and it doesn't seem to be effective at all. My skin is actually worse everyday, but I don't think it is because of these products. My body has been adjusting to all these new hormones (birth control pill) I am taking. Sucks ass. I feel like this has been an ongoing problem for about 4 months now and its so ridiculous. But I am going to tough this out.

My thoughts are not fluid and as articulate as I want them to be. I really am just rambling for the sake of blogging. I am exhausted. Maybe I will edit this tomorrow. I have a lot more bitching to do about my skin.

That's it for now.

Yay! I love it when you blog!!! :0D I love reading about your new purchases... how's the apricot scrub? I've been wanting to try a new exfloliator. Don't they have a microdermabrasion version now? with like crystals? Maybe your skin is just purging all the pimples first, then your skin will clear up. Or maybe you're using products that are too harsh for your face. Maybe just use mild cleanser and just spot treat your acne. It's always fun to experiment. :0) Also, try switching your bcp if it's making your face worse. okay... i'll chat with you on aim now... hahahhah! k baiiiiiiii oh... and please do a blog of your favorite products as well... I want to know your beauty secrets.
