Hi.

Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind.

But Does It Work?*

Since the birth of my third child in May, my skin has reverted to it's Junior High state of oily splotchiness. My usual skin regimen is failing me and the spots (OMG the *SPOTS*!) are driving me crazy. Acne medications and treatments can be tricky to navigate when breastfeeding or pregnant, but New Proactiv is considered safe so I'm excited to give it a try! New Proactiv uses a simple 3-step system to cleansing skin -- a gentle cleanser, revitalizing toner, and repairing moisturizer. It's a quick and easy "twice a day" process -- once in the morning and once at night. The cleanser exfoliates as it cleans and the toner helps improve skin tone while lifting away dead skin cells. The repairing treatment helps moisturize the skin while working to prevent future breakouts.

To keep it real, I am posting a dour "before" picture:

Check back in a month to see how it worked for me!
