When you hear the terms “skin resurfacing” and “skin rejuvenation” you might think they are interchangeable, but the reality is that they are two often different things. Skin resurfacing refers to procedures which specifically target the surface of your skin, such as laser peels and chemical peels. However, skin rejuvenation procedures include resurfacing techniques as well as procedures of any kind that are designed to make your skin look better, even if those procedures treat deeper skin tissues.

Another month, another exciting bunch of stuff to try from my ipsy GlamBag! Here’s my ipsy GlamBag December 2017 review for you guys!
I’m so excited I can finally share about some products from my skincare routine for congestions and clogged pores!
I started weaning my son from breastfeeding shortly before he turned one in September, and boy did my skin hate me for that! I thought pregnancy acne was bad, but no one ever told me weaning acne would be far worse! To top it all off, seasonal changes was also a culprit. I had at least two new cystic acne appearing every week and my pores congested with tiny, skin-colored bumps with new ones appearing every day.
I started on the La Roche Posay Effaclar System Kit, as I mentioned in my latest Empties: Buy Or Bye? post and it tremendously helped clear up my cystic acne, but it stopped there. After all my cystic acne disappeared, I was left with tons of red spots and discoloration, and my pores were still very much congested – all throughout my T-Zone and jawline.
About 2-3 weeks ago I started using some products from the Elucent Anti Ageing range, and I was so shocked to see the results. I can’t believe the vast improvement I’ve been seeing on my skin.
Check out my before-and-after photos and reviews of the products below. I will share my whole my skincare routine for congestions and clogged pores soon!
I love trying out new products, and subscription boxes are a great way to do them! Each month you get 5-6 sample sized products, sometimes including full-sized too, for $10-15.
I’ve been subscribed to ipsy and Sephora Play for a while now, and I’m finally unsubscribing to one of them today. Which one is it?

I’ve never done a post like this before, but I think it’s quite useful to know not just the things I do like, but also the things that didn’t work for me, which is why I’ve decided to show you why I decided to return these things despite the hype around them on social media.
