Dirty Girl

I recently decided to give an old tried and true face wash a try again. I had used Noxzema as a teenager and never had really bad skin. In fact I would say my skin overall had been pretty good. When I saw a huge container on sale for a really good price I bought it without hesistation. Fast forward a few weeks...after using the Noxzema for about 3-4 weeks i started to notice a great deal of breakout and gross spots on my face. The product claims to deep clean and mosturize, and leave your skin feeling fresh so i never thought my skin would be so dirty after using it to wash my face at the end of the day. I was really upset about all the blemishes on my face so i went over it several times with a cotton pad soak in rubbing alcohol (a tried and true cleanser- even if slightly drying on skin) the puff was filthly. It looked as though i had not even washed my face at all. I was horrified and am now on a search for a pruduct that actually does what it claims and cleanses my face, removing makeup and dirt!

I recently had a day off with nothing to really focus on but myself. I decided that after getting my nails done I was going to get a Sephora...
