PRODUCT: Clean & Clear Finishes Mattifying Cleanser
As an adult who is beyond the teen years of oily skin and awkward pimples, I find it a little frustrating that I still have oily skin and awkward pimples. It is not as severe as when I was younger, but now that I'm in my 20s, I was hoping the spots would be gone. As a result, I find myself on a constant quest for a face cleanser that will free me from the perpetual shiny forehead and the little pimples that pop up every so often; but I also seek a cleanser that will not leave my tender skin dry and itchy.
I finally tried Clean & Clear Finishes Mattifying Cleanser ($6.99). It is oil-free, which is factor #1 for me. I normally use exfoliating cleansers, but since I have yet to be happy with one I took the advice of a friend and went for a smooth cleanser. I lathered up my face with Finishes Mattifying Cleanser and let it soak in for one minute, just like the directions say. I waited in anxious suspense as I rinsed the white foam from my skin. When I finally opened my eyes I was thrilled to see clean and smooth skin, with no evidence of the day’s oil or makeup. My skin was soft, shine-free, and not dried out. With these results, I think I just found my new daily cleanser.

BACK TO CAMPUS BEAUTY By Wendy Lewis
(HealthNewsDigest.com) – It’s that time of year again – the joys of dorm life are back. All your prized belongings, favorite jeans, can’t-live-without t-shirts, lip glosses, have to fit into one big trunk, and you have to condense your beauty routine down to a few easy steps. You will be showering with strangers out of a petite plastic caddy with only your grooming essentials; shampoo, conditioner, face cleanser, and body wash. It makes it tough to keep up your beauty routines under these circumstances.
But the stress of pending exams and sleep deprivation can wreak havoc with your skin. Being on a tight budg
