the Dove Challenge Update!

Lobster and Sheester both think my skin looks better since Sunday when I started using Dove to cleanse my face.

Also, no new friends have moved in. The painful bumps from the previous week are healing and peeling and bleeding. But surprisingly - nothing new.

Skin feels dry after washing, even though the beauty bar is 1/3 moisturizer. So I'm using a sample of Chantecaille's Flower Harmonizing Cream. And of course - eye cream!

I miss my jars and bottles and pumps and tubes! The Dove bar may work but it's not very sexy.

Reality is sinking in - I really am an INCORRIGIBLE sucker for packaging and marketing.

lipstick kisses,

I think you should have taken a picture before the Dove challenge and then updated pictures once a week so we can see the progress!!
are you not using a mositurizers AT ALL??? nothing? that's why your skin feels dry..just use a simple moisturizer...seriously you know better.

I do know better but all the moisturizers I have are "fancy" and therefor not approved for use by "the committee". And I WILL NOT! use Lobster's walmart version of Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion. The Chantecaille is working well though. Might bring out the Garnier Nutrice Skin Renewal Moisturizer.
I also thought about the before and after pics but didn't want to scare away readers!

so i've started using the Neutragena Visably Clear cleanser and night cream. Hiba has been using it too and I can't even express how great this stuff is. i really love it. it doesn't leave a residue on your skin and leaves it feeling clean. When the dove challenge ends perhaps you might to try it out for a week and see how your skin feels.
