It’s only Monday & I already feel like I’ve been hit by a truck & a NYC train all at once y’all. I had a very good weekend. On Saturday I worked but on Sunday I had the day off. The beau & I decided why not go to the city for the day & enjoy ourselves? I had a really great time! We strolled around the city. I went to the Brooklyn Bridge Park/Dumbo for first the time in my life. I have never been there.
I know you’re probably thinking “that’s strange. Aren’t you from NYC? Brooklyn to be exact?” Indeed I am. But growing up in the city, monuments like the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island, in my opinion, are not created for the people of NYC to go & just visit. They’re tourist attractions honestly. But that’s neither here nor there. I was very much so happy to have seen the Statue of Liberty from afar (which I actually did visit once on a school trip when I was doing my EMT program back in 2010). & the new Freedom Tower just across. It was breathe taking & never in my 27 years of living, did I think I would be there. I just didn’t get to walk the Brooklyn Bridge. That will happen next time for sure!
In the midst of all of that, it was very hot! It wasn’t very humid but the sun was bright, shining & beating on my back. & yes, I had on makeup. & yes, I felt like my face was melting off as well lol! Which is crazy because I did set my makeup. But with NYC’s heatwave & the grime & dirt in the air, my skin always feels like it’s crawling once I leave & come back home to Connecticut. I immediately have to shower all of the city’s pollution from my skin 😂 I also cleanse my skin thoroughly too.
I recently received some products from a company called BioClarity. They’re a monthly subscription box with plant based, cruelty free, vegan, all natural skincare line. It’s a brand targeted to teens & young adults with skin types prone to getting acne. But it is workable for anyone & everyone. Although I have normal to dry skin, my skin is prone to getting tiny bumps here & again. Also a pimple or two. Either from stress or just not eating right that week.
As of lately, using all natural skincare has been important for me & my skin. Although I do not have oily or sensitive skin type, I am getting older as well. I do not have that youthful, pretty, clear skin I once had like 10 years ago.
I probably do my makeup like 6 times a year. I’m not really allowed to wear makeup at work so that’s one reason. I seldom go out. My days off are very minimal. I stay home & rest. Very, very seldom do my boyfriend & I go out. Work schedules are pretty conflicting. But I do find at times I get little breakouts here & there on my forehead & on my cheeks. Whether I do my makeup or not. Since trying out Frank Body’s skincare line, I’ve noticed a difference in my skin for sure.
Step 1: Cleanse
The cleanser is probably one of my fave cleansers I’ve ever put on my face. It lathers up so nicely! I put some on my Clarisonic & I go to town 😂 it’s really refreshing & my skin doesn’t feel tight or dried out after using it either. I do feel like it works deep into my skin without giving off this weird tingly, burning sensation that some other cleansers may do. Like charcoal cleansers. Enhanced with cucumber, green tea & chamomile, I find this cleanser to be more calming on the skin. Doesn’t feel harsh & doesn’t feel like you need a lot or need to do a lot for it to work as well.
The cucumber extract soothes & calms the skin. While the green tea is packed with antioxidants to detoxify the skin. & the chamomile extracts dirt and oil from your pores, while at the same time soothing the skin.
Step 2: Treat
I’ve tried treatment gels in the pass & a lot of them actually dried my skin out so bad. & they would work but the problem would still persist. I use to have bangs & the oils from my hair & the products I used, would clog up my forehead so bad! With this treatment you apply morning & night. & you dab over your problem areas. Mine are my cheeks & my forehead. It’s curated with oat kernels to help with hydration. But also with salicylic acid to help combat blemishes, decrease inflammation & shrink your pores. It’s only my second day using this product. But I can say it hasn’t dried out my skin much at all. Allow it to dry before moving onto step 3.
Step 3: Restore
The last step in this system & probably one of my favorites. This is BioClarity’s prestigious product. It’s created with Floralux which is a compound derived from Chlorophyll (the green stuff in plants). Its mission is to reduce redness & irritation. Jam packed with vitamins, it leaves this refreshed, cool feel over the skin. Thanks to the invigorating Licorice Root made into the gel as well. I found that my skin looked noticeably awake & it had a beautiful glow. Not once using this system did my face dry out terribly or feel dry after using either.
A few people have asked me if this line is scented. & it is not at all scented. I found no fragrance nor chemical smells either. Which is fine with me. Since I am sensitive to certain smells (due to the dyes & synthetics that some brands use in their ingredients) & some chemicals seem to give a reaction to my skin. For these products to be vegan & natural, it’s a win! There aren’t too many natural skincare products out there. Let alone plant based, vegan &/or cruelty free.
If you give this system a try, compare it to other skincare products you use now or have used in the past. Right now BioClarity has a promotion. You can get all 3 products for $14.95 instead of $30 for one month! Happy cleansing!
