MD Skincare All Over Blemish Solution: Review

For more than a year whenever I get any blemish, whether it’s a small zit or a humongous pimple I always make sure to apply Clean amp; Clear’s Advantage Acne Spot Treatment in order to treat it. But I always love to try new beauty products, so when I received a sample of MD Skincare’s All Over Blemish Solution, I was all over it and couldn’t wait until I got a new pimple so I could try it out. As if on cue a new pimple sprang up within days of me receiving the MD Skincare sample. The pimple that appeared on my chin was one of those painful red ones that’s under the skin. It was the kind of pimple that takes forever to come to a head so when I applied the All Over Blemish Solution to it I didn’t expect a dramatic result right away.

But a couple of hours went by and when I felt the pimple I was shocked to feel that the soreness had disappeared. So had a lot of the swelling. The bump was still there but the pimple wasn’t red anymore. So basically the MD Skincare All Over Blemish Solution sped up my zit’s healing process by about 2 or 3 days.

Since I had such great results I kept using the All Over Blemish Solution on that pimple for the rest of the week. Unfortunately the blemish never decreased much in size after that first day, and it never came to a head either. So I had a small bump under my skin for about three weeks until it finally came to the surface. When the bump finally surfaced it was back to the size it had been initially. So that pretty much sucked and it defeated the whole purpose of me using the Blemish Solution.

I’ve since used the MD Skincare All Over Blemish Solution on smaller pimples, and it’s been very effective for knocking out redness and pain. It’s also helps to reduce the initial size of most of them by 50% until the pimple heals completely.

I really love how gentle it is. The first ingredient in the Clean amp; Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment is alcohol, it smells like alcohol and when it’s applied to a pimple especially one that has broken skin it burns slightly. But the MD Skincare Blemish Solution has the same feel as Smashbox’s Primer, it feels like Vaseline but without the greasy feel, so it isn’t drying or irritating to the skin.

This product is quite pricey, a 1.7oz. tube costs $84. I would recommend this treatment for anyone who wants to see an immediate difference in large pimples, and wants to prevent them from starting in the first place. I also think the MD Skincare All Over Blemish Solution would be a great acne treatment for those with sensitive skin because it won’t cause any irritation or dry out your skin. But let’s face it if you have normal skin you can get the same results for less than $10 with the Clean and Clear Spot Treatment. I give the Blemish Solution 4 out of 5 stars.

Beauty Product Review: RareMinerals Skin Revival Treatment

When I first found out that Bare Escentuals was coming out with a night time skincare, I was so ecstatic. I was already a big fan of their make up line, bareMinerals, so just imagine my excitement when I heard this great news. I was using Patrica Wexler’s night cream then and I wasn’t at all happy with it because there were times when I started breaking out but there were times when I didn’t. Plus I didn’t really notice any big changes with my complexion after months of using her product. So when I learned that they had this product, I immediately ordered it. It is a little pricey but it is worth the $60. Just like their make up line is worth every penny.

This very first mineral-based night time skincare worked wonders for me. After my first week of using it, I started noticing changes in my complexion and now I have the skin I’ve always wanted. I read on www.bareescentuals.com that this product was clinically proven to visibly reduce pores, brighten complexion, give sofer and smoother texture, reduce find lines and wrinkles, lessen redness of skin, and provide cleaner and firmer-looking skin. Well they were right! My husband even started noticing the changes in my complexion. At first, he was wondering why I started wearing make up to bed. I had to explain to him the whole thing. That it’s not makeup. It may look like it but it’s not. This night time skincare mineral-based so it doesn’t make your skin oily like many night time creams do. You also get to choose from four (4) different shades to match your skin (clear, light, meduim, and tan).

This product is available at www.bareescentuals.com and www.sephora.com. You can also visit a Bare Escentuals store and Sephora and purchase it from there. It is $60. A bit pricey, but like I said, it is worth every penny! I would pay even more if I had to. That’s how great this product is. I recomment this to those who have had a chance to try Bare Escentuals products and even for those who haven’t. Try it and I’m sure you will love it the same way that I do. This product has no preservatives and zero irritants just like Bare Escentuals’ make up line, bareMinerals. I’ve been using this for months now and I will never go back to any other night time creams.

Aquafina Advanced Hydration Wrinkle Release & Sealer Skincare: Review

When I first caught glimpse of the Aquafina logo staring back at me down the beauty section isle, I was wondering if I got lost, was I down the wrong isle?

I immediately associated the name Aquafina with bottled water. I was not expecting to see the logo in the beauty section at all.

Due to the fact that Aquafina seemed to of gotten lost in the beauty section, I was of course intrigued. What the heck is Aquafina doing down here?

I then began to think of Aquafina, and how it’s logo is usually on bottled water… I wondered, would this Aquafina stuff be like hydration for my skin, like a drink for my thirsty dry skin? Perhaps.

I went for Aquafina Advances Hydration, Wrinkle Release amp; Sealer. I turned the adorable box around and read the details. I was shocked at the bold promise of visible results in just one hour! Now in my years of buying products with bold promises such as this, it usually meant one thing. Rip-Off!

Results in one hours time! Yeah, okay… whattyah take me for, an idiot? Nothing works in just an hour. Not even Lipo.

Guess I’m an idiot, because I walked out $5.00 poorer. I guess though it’s not such a bad thing. Usually this stuff sells for $14.00 elsewhere. Walmart had a $5.00 special clearance section… and Aquafina Advanced Hydration Wrinkle Release amp; Sealer happened to be in the clearance section. Seeing how Aquafina Advanced Hydration Wrinkle Release amp; Sealer is also new to the market… it most likely meant bad things.

Usually if a product lands a spot in the clearance rack so quickly, it most likely means it sucks. But I am… the worlds largest sucker… so I bought it up anyway.

The Packaging:

Aquafina Advanced Hydration Wrinkle Release amp; Sealer packaging screams bottled water… only it’s in a cardboard rectangular packaging, with a small hallowed window where a little bottle of lotion in a jug sits.

The package itself is a metallic colored blue, which is really pretty, and eye catching. It also has Aquafina’s signature logo at the top.

The Promise:

Besides the very bold ‘one hour results’ promise. Aquafina Advanced Hydration Wrinkle Release amp; Sealer also promises to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and the texture of skin. Using Aquafina Advanced Hydration Wrinkle Release amp; Sealer also will supposedly help reduce puffiness. Did I mention… in just an hour?

Yeah, yeah, all this, in an hour.

My Use:

I unscrewed the lotions lid, and began applying the lotion to my face. I noticed that it had no scent, which was sort of disappointing. I have always enjoyed a nice scent to go with my facial lotions. Aquafina Advanced Hydration Wrinkle Release amp; Sealer though, had none.

The lotion has a decent texture, and I especially liked how it didn’t leave behind any sort of nasty greasy residue. It absorbed quickly, and all was well.

I was actually counting the minutes while using this one. I couldn’t wait to see if there were results in an hour. I watched an episode of Maury, and found out ‘he was NOT the father’. I then checked my face.


Err… everything pretty much looked the same. However because I was ‘expecting’ results, I began to imagine I saw results. I couldn’t go by the first test. I was too excited about it working. I had to wait again and test it the next day to see if the one hour results were legit.

Day 2, and I could tell my skin was the same. One hour before I put it on, and one hour after putting it on.

Of course I had been taken…

Where To Find:

I have only spotted Aquafina Advanced Hydration Wrinkle Release amp; Sealer at Walmart so far. I am sure though this stuff is being sold in drug stores as well. I recommend you purchase something else though.


Aquafina needs to stick to bottling water.
