You’re probably wondering just what in the world is this photograph. It’s of my own face, and it’s not exactly flattering, is it? A few weeks ago, I had the unique opportunity as a Neutrogena ambassador to visit their headquarters for a peek behind the scenes, and to experience their new technology that can show you the future of your unseen acne. The pimple you see tomorrow actually started brewing several weeks ago! The photo above is indicative of that for me, and it’s all exactly where I normally experience blackheads. Eww!

Believe it or not, it can take 6-8 weeks for a pimple to appear…

During my visit, I sat down with a dermatologist and had my skin photographed with Neutrogena’s Clinical Skin Imager.

boots party 530

It’s time for #ArchMadness!

I hope you’ll join myself and Boots Beauty for a fun Twitter party on Thursday, March 27th at 7-8pm EST. We’ll be discussing eyebrows, beauty, and more! Just follow @beautyjunkies and @bootsbeautyusa, and use #ArchMadness. I’ll be giving away several prizes that you won’t want to miss!

Some of my fave eyebrow/lash products we’ll discuss…

  • No7 Fanomenal Lash Serum — Fuller, thicker and darker lashes after just eight weeks with No7 Fanomenal Lash Serum. The unique blend of ingredients helps improve the quality of the growth of eyelashes. When used daily, 82% of women saw an overall noticeable improvement in their lashes.
  • No7 Lash & Brow Perfector — No7 Lash & Brow Perfector provides defined lashes and brows all day long. The gel-like conditioning formula gives natural definition, without color, to the lashes while also taming and setting eyebrows. A specially designed brush with long bristles on one end for lashes and shorter bristles on the other hand for brows disperses the lightweight gel for perfectly defined eyes.
  • No7 Beautiful Brows Pencil — (available in Brown, Blonde, and Black) This defining eye pencil helps ‘fill in’ brows. It has its own brush which helps to tame and groom the brows.
  • Botanics Eyebrow Pencil — (available in Medium Brown) The Power of Plants! This Soft Eyebrow Pencil Contains Skin-Conditioning Jojoba Oil. It’s armed with a brush, helping to define the perfect brows to frame your face.

I look forward to chatting with you on Thursday night! Bring your eyebrow and beauty questions!
