What is up my friends, long time no see! Today, I am talking about what I do when my skin may not be on its’ best behavior. If you have been around a while, then you know my skin story. If you are new, check out these posts….1/2. Although I have never suffered from acne, I do have the occasional breakout. Who knew something so easy was available? First Aid Beauty is pretty famous for being kind to skin, but also very effective. Their Blemish Patrol Pads are super easy to use, and something I keep stocked in my cabinet!
If you have not heard of First Aid Beauty, where have you been? It has been all over beauty blogs/vlogs for a couple of years now. I was actually turned onto this product by a Youtube video, haha. I have pretty sensitive skin, especially when it comes to products. I am always so scared to introduce new products into my routine. I am always convinced they are going to make my skin go crazy. Luckily, First Aid Beauty is pretty much made for people like me. Not only is it made for sensitive skin, but the Blemish Patrol Pads are also allergy-tested, fragrance free, and hypoallergenic. Pretty much perfect. Oh, did I mention these are free from parabens, harsh chemicals, and colorants? They are!
In every package, you get sixty pads to help your skin out. These pads are to clear up any breakouts you may have, as well as prevent anything from coming up again. Each pad is soaked in a solution that includes Tea Tree Oil, Salicylic Acid, and Evermat. Yes girl, I had to look up what Evermat was…it is a natural blend that helps to tighten your pores, as well as matify. Goodbye shine! I still am nervous about Salicylic Acid, but these pads contain Willowbark Extract to keep your skin calm. Each side of the pad has a different texture. One side is a little bit more firm, which personally helps me exfoliate. It also helps get any dead skin away from the breakout to make sure that you are getting the full potency of the pads. The other side is more gentle, but neither are harsh, so do not be worried.
These are perfect for travel by the way. You know those Almay travel eye makeup remover containers? These fit in there! Just make sure to label that if you don’t have a great memory. These are crazy easy to incorporate in your skin. Just wipe them all over your face after you cleanse. I do one in the morning and one at night if I am having a bad skin day. I usually just use one and have no issues. These will run you about $30 for 60 pads, so they are not necessarily cheap, but they are an investment that even I can justify! I got mine at Sephora, but I am sure they are available anywhere that First Aid Beauty is sold.
