DISCLAIMER: Absolutely none of these are sponsored! I sincerely love these products. But like, if they WANTED to sponsor me, I wouldn’t say no. (Have your people call my people)

1. LEROSETT Organic Clay Treatment by Gunilla of Sweden

I started breaking out badly around my sophomore / junior year in college. I somehow managed to avoid bad skin as a teenager (minus the occasional blemish), but ohhhh don’t you worry! It caught up to me. Adult acne is a cruel joke. Cruel, cruel joke. I was desperate to find something that worked. I don’t even remember how I came across this company, but I fell in love SO hard.

Cruelty free! Organic! And I’m not kidding, shrinks pimples in a night or two. I started using the clay mask and then as spot treatment to leave overnight, and ALL my acne cleared. Like, all of it. And so quickly. I will warn you that it is pretty drying, so make sure you’re moisturizing well.

The only downside is that it’s on the pricey side, so I don’t always have it on hand. In fact, whenever my skin starts acting up, it’s because I’ve been without the product for a while.

2. Original Coffee Scrub by Frank Body

This was suggested to me by one of my best friends, Briana. In addition to the facial acne I was dealing with, I also got the SUPER CUTE bacne. Yeah, like, acne…on the back. College was so great, guys!

Briana struggled with her skin during pregnancy and was always on the look out for helpful products. She recommend Frank to me and swore by it. I was willing to try anything. And Frank did not disappoint. They don’t animal test and the product smells SO DAMN GOOD. Because, you guessed it, it smells like coffee.

My back started clearing up after a few weeks and it even helped lighten some of the left-over scarring I have. And I always smelled like coffee, so that’s a plus.

3. Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream by 100% PURE

Not acne related but still important, ya girl’s got MAJOR bags under her eyes. I could blame it on genetics (my grandfather used to say, “My bags are packed and I’m ready to go!” pointing to his puffy under-eye luggage). But I could also blame my unhealthy sleeping patterns. Insomnia isn’t kind to the complexion, you know. This eye cream totally brightens me up.

100% PURE is a fabulous company. Ideally, I like my cosmetics to be organic, cruelty-free, natural, and with ingredients that aren’t going to give me cancer. It’s a tall order, I know. But 100% PURE checks off each box. No harmful toxins. No animals are harmed in the process. It feels good knowing I’m using something that didn’t hurt any other living beings to make, AND it’s healthy for my body. Found something other than my ex boyfriend to be obsessed with! Yay!

What products do you swear by? Any companies I should be checking out? Here’s to better skin in 2017.
