It's Friday! SkinOwl

I have battled with my skin still thinking I'm 13 since I was 13. Seriously, what bad karma does one have to still be dealing with breakouts in their 30s? Enough already! Ever since my junior year in college by skin has become ridiculously sensitive and one mysterious ingredient in a product will send me nose diving into puberty. To this day, products that I use religiously will randomly turn on me. I have been to multiple dermatologists in my day and not even medical interventions worked. Due to this seemingly never-ending drama, I have become very wary of new products and what damage they may cause. Then I found SkinOwl!

SkinOwl is an amazing skin care line from my childhood friend Annie Tevelin, makeup artist to the stars and now cosmetic chemist aficionado in Los Angeles! I started researching her line and felt instant comfort by our similar history with moody complexions. She too knew the aggravation of being in and out of doctors offices and trying every new product on the market with little to no success. So she did what any ole Jane would do and got her post-grad certificate in Cosmetic Chemistry from UCLA. Ok, maybe most people wouldn't do that which is why she's even more special! With this knew skill set and knowledge she could now invent top of the line products that she herself could test and see the results. SkinOwl is now sold in boutique shops around the country and can even be delivered to your door via their website! Their unique line of face and body oils are fabulous for healing, balancing, and hydrating your skin. Don't forget the awesome eye gel and candles.

Anyhoo, I contacted Annie and I gave her a bullet point list of adjectives to describe my skin. With that she "prescribed me" the Geranium Argan Infusion which "balances, decongests and combats first signs of aging, while boosting radiance. Best for dehydrated, dull, combination skin types.". As stated before, I was a little hesitant to try a new product but decided to throw caution to the wind. And by that I mean I looked in the mirror ever 10 minutes to see if my face had exploded yet. That night I used almost an entire dropper on my face (which was already broken out) and slept with neurotic fairies in my head. When I woke up in the morning, I tip-toed to the mirror with eyes shut tight, opened each eye very slowly and BAM! Not only had I not broken out more, but my face was completely clear. I kid you not! Annie had made a miracle in a bottle and I was soon addicted. I now use a few drops each morning in my moisturizer and then half a dropper alone at night. 

Do yourself a favor, read each of the 3 product descriptions, find which one suits you best and meet your new best skin care friend. Do not forget the body oil! I mix that in with my favorite moisturizer and it's like I'm a newborn again. Trust me, you won't regret it! As a thank you, please enjoy 10% OFF your purchases with discount coupon MOXIE.
