Sk-In The Know

Having good skin has always been a bit of a struggle for me.

If I'm honest, it's because I've typically been too lazy to take the time

to take off my make-up & wash my face before bed.

So basically, I wanted great skin without doing anything.

Which, obviously, didn't work.

Last year, my friend


forwarded me Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP issue

on her

favorite finds

from French Pharmacies.

I was planning to go to


later that month for work,

so I jotted down a list on my phone,

& scooped up a few items when I was there.

Then a few weeks later, the craziest thing started happening:

my skin started to clear up.

Weird, I know.

Who knew face products, when used, actually could do stuff?

I got a little addicted to the idea of not having flaky skin

and patches of oiliness & build-up,

so I started getting into the whole idea.

A year later,

I'm a full out believer

that if you take care of your skin,

it can actually look pretty nice.

I've added a few other things since my trip to France...

my bathroom shelf now includes a few more things

that make my skin look great today

and will, hopefully, help it looks its best in the years to come!

The one thing I have yet to find is a good night cream.

I know, I know... "La Mer!" 

But you guys, it is SO expensive.

Surely there is something just as good

that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars?

Or is is really just THAT good?

Tell me what you think below, I'd love your input!
