This post might make some people very proud of me. :-) Remember a post from two weeks ago about me not having the heart to touch some of the expensive pieces in my makeup collection? If you missed it, click here to open the post in a new window. This is makeup that is too pretty to use, too expensive to use or was limited edition, therefor not available anymore and worth much more than when I bought it… Ugh, the struggle!
I’m happy to say that I’ve finally used my Estee Lauder eyeshadow palette! I’ve had it for a while now, so it was time. ;-)

The best part about Fall is the fact that it’s ok to wear dark lipstick on a daily basis, it’s hip to order Salted Caramel Hot Chocolates at Starbucks and burning candles all day long is considered normal. The candles that have been burning all over our apartment lately are by Old Factory Candles. And because nothing is never normal around here, neither are our candles. :-D The candles are from the 50 Shades collection. Old Factory carries a bunch of different collections and this is far out the most…adventurous?

Beauty Question: which products do you recommend for acne?

Time for me to answer another beauty question! Today’s topic is a question I get asked a lot when people hear about my skin issues. If you’re new to my blog: I’ve been suffering from mild acne for years. Luckily, I have in ‘under control’ now, but my skin is still very sensitive and acne-prone. Because I often get asked which products I recommend to treat acne, I have made a list. This list isn’t in a particular order; these are products that have worked for me in the past or that I’m currently using. Of course, there’s no guarantee that they will all work for you (everybody’s skin is different), but if you suffer from acne, they are definitely worth checking out!

best acne medications products

Below are my current favorite acne products. No particular order. :-)

Acnomel Adult Acne Medication Tinted Cream
Acnomel Adult Acne Medication Tinted Cream

Acnomel Adult Acne Medication Tinted Cream: This is an acne medication meant for adults only. Its main ingredient is sulfur, which is known for treating acne and blemishes. It’s tinted, so you can mix it with your regular moisturizer, if it’s your shade. Or you can use it at night, which is what I did (it’s too light for me to use it during the day). It’s not as drying as other acne medications, because it does not contain Benzoyl Peroxide. You can read a review I wrote on it here. The post is kinda dated, so it’s not as ‘informative’ as the reviews I write these days. LOL! You can find Acnomel in most drugstores or on Amazon.
