I’ve Got it All Figured Out

…. with regards to my face, anyway.

It’s been awhile since I’ve b*tched about my face on here, so let’s go! I discovered what causes those horrible blind pimples I seem to know all too well. You’d never believe the confession.

Ready for it?

That’s right, folks. That guy up there. All this time I thought I was “investing” in my face, “taking care of” my sensitive skin by using the gentle giant in terms of skin care. And all this time, it was my problem.

BS!, you say?


I don’t want to believe it either.

If you remember, I used the skin tone correcting moisturizer. I attributed the nasty skin to stress from school, the gross dorm food, blah blah blah. I finished the jar around the time I finished school, and never refilled it

Summer has been great, my skins been clear as could be. I think, okay let’s get some more moisturizer, I haven’t bought a nice one since I was at school.

GUESS WHAT FOLKS. I bought the plain old classic Clinique in the big yellow pump. Now I’ve got 2 blind pimples. Thanks a lot, Clinique! Thank god for Sephora’s return policy, is all I can say.

I can’t wait until my skin clears up again so I can buy a new moisturizer just to guarantee that Clinique is the problem. When I was debating returning Big Yellow, I looked online and found other people saying that this lotion broke them out too, so I don’t think I’m alone in this.

Have you ever had a problem with Clinique lotions breaking you out?
