Hey, what’s with the grainy pictures? Looks like someone had her camera on the wrong setting. Looks like someone was having too good of a time to realize. But hey, no judgement, please – someone must have been exhausted from all the events she attended that week. It’s a good kind of exhaustion, the only negative side effect being possibly grainy pictures.
IN ANY CASE. I have to tell you about these Dermalogica products.
I don’t often review beauty products on my blog because there’s often something “off” about them. They’re either made with some terribly unhealthy ingredients – I’ll take my lipstick with the lead on the side, thanks – or they over-promise and under-deliver.
A blog is meant to be candid. I might be in marketing communications in “real life”, but when I post on my blog I’m not trying to sell, I’m purely a consumer like the rest of you. I won’t post a positive review of a product I don’t believe in!
Come in, Dermalogica. Not only are these products healthy and based on the latest scientific skin improvement studies, but they also work. My favorite? The new SkinPerfect Primer – it promises to “smooth away fine lines, firm, brighten, prime for flawless skin and prep for make-up application”, and it keeps its promise. When I use this primer before my foundation and make-up routine, I swear, my pores disappear. It’s like Photoshop without Photoshop. Amazing.
Another reason I like Dermalogica? The company helps women entrepreneurs in third world countries by offering them small loans for community-relvant businesses. These loans are eventually paid back, and allow the ladies to be self-sufficient! An amazing initiative.
Here’s to simultaneously discovering wonderful new products and taking part in social corporate responsibility!
