Peter Thomas Roth: Second Obsession Worthy Product

I have been through approximately 2.5 years of trying to figure out what the H*&L is wrong with my skin...clearly this hasn't been a frustrating journey.  My skin totally changed as I got into my late 20's, and I started breaking out like crazy on my cheeks (my CHEEKS!).  As I started to treat my skin like a full blown case of acne (it wasn't), I now understand that I only irritated my skin further, thus causing more breakouts, and on and on it went.  Vicious cycle, indeed.  I had a chemical peel, which basically felt like my face was being pressed against the sun.  Not that such a procedure isn't a good idea - for me, I'm not so sure it was the right route at that time.  Anyway.  The one positive is that I've learned a lot along the way, and I have finally figured out that yes, I do have a "congested" complexion that requires some level of treatment - and I've finally figured out that perfect level of treatment with the aid of PTR's gentle (key word) complexion correction pads.

Holy moly, these pads are miracle workers.  They only have .5% salicylic acid, in comparison to the more heavy duty 2% in a lot of acne-fighting products.  Super easy on the skin, they deliver just the amount of treatment my skin needs to remain clear.  And because they're so gentle, you can use them once or twice daily.  I noticed improvement immediately, and my skin has really remained clear since I started using these.  An added bonus?  They smell peachy, and not like medicine.    I wash my face, swipe one of these over my skin, use my new fave serum (in an upcoming post, I know you're excited), and I'm good to go.

Sunsilk Hydra TL Oui

Boy oh boy, Teddy Charles.  Vous êtes un homme magique.  That means "you are one magic man" en français, at least according to Google Translate (Teddy is Paris-born...I'm not just throwing out random french phrases).  If you read my previous post about Sunsilk's Battle of the Brushes, you know that Sunsilk has teamed up with Teddy Charles (one of the fashion industry's most notable hairstylists) to re-formulate and re-introduce four categories of hair care products.  There are products for the curly-haired ladies (Sunsilk Captivating Curls), those in need of more volume in their life (Sunsilk Daring Volume), pretty gals with dry locks (Sunsilk Hydra TLC), and excessive users of heat (Sunsilk ThermaShine). 

As for me, I fall into the "dry locks" category, thanks to years and years...and years...of coloring and heat styling.  Sunsilk so graciously sent me their new product line to try the goods for myself before the Battle of the Brushes event this coming Friday - and I'm so glad they did.  If I'm being honest, I don't know if I would have purchased any of these products prior to being able to sample them.  The verdict?  I can't gush enough over how much I adore this line.  I am pleasantly surprised over just how much I love this line.  I haven't tried the others (yet), mostly because the Hydra TLC gives me such amazing hair and I'm kind of stuck on that right now.  :)  The results:  shiny, smooth, healthy, sleek, (fill in any positive hair adjective here) - it literally feels like I just left my salon.  I am officially converted - and at about $5 a pop, my wallet is quite happy about that switch. 

Don't forget...if you live in Indy - come and hang out on Friday at Castleton Square to see the Battle of the Brushes.  Be one of the first 50 to snag a free product...highly recommended by yours truly.

Hello, Giveaway.

I am in a super fantastic terrific mood.  As a result, I have decided to gift one special reader with a sweet little new bath and body collection from Victoria's Secret.  The new Pink line is fab -not only does it leave my skin super soft, the scents are great as well.  My personal fave out of the 3 scents available is the vanilla & shea butter (citrus & mint and cucumber & waterlily are also available).  It's so warm and soothing - and I know, I know it's getting warmer outside, but who doesn't love some good vanilla scents?  I can't even explain how much I love the sugar scrub - it has the perfect grain to it and gets a little sudsy.  

Here's what you get:  Pink Feel Soft Go Natural sugar scrub, body wash, and body mist in Vanilla & Shea Butter ($36 value). 

Become a fan of Pretty Indy on Facebook and tell us your favorite, can't live without it beauty product and why - we'll pick a winner on Monday.  If you're not on Facebook, leave us a comment here! 
Good luck!

Battle of the Brushes....Coming Soon!

Sunsilk has re-vamped and teamed up with NYC fashionrunway hair stylist Teddy Charles to bring you 10 fabulous new products.  To celebrate this collaboration and spread the love, Sunsilk and Teddy Charles are hitting 8 cities around the U.S. 

A "Battle of the Brushes" will ensue at each tour stop, where two top local stylists will go head-to-head in a competition to crown one stylist's look "runway worthy!"  The stylists will be using the new products in Sunsilk's line as their inspiration - and they won't know what those products will be until the competition (very Iron Chef - how fun!). 

What's in it for you?  Not only are you guaranteed a little fun in your day, but if you are one of the first 50 shoppers to arrive, you will snag a new Sunsilk product, as well as the chance to have a hair consultation with Teddy and his team! 

I will be serving as the "beauty expert" judge in Indianapolis on April 9th - come out and see me!  In addition, stay tuned to Beauty Buddy as Sunsilk has graciously sent some new products my way...I will surely let you know all about them!
