Clearasil have recently released a brand new range with their Daily Clear Vitamin and Extract, and to celebrate they have asked a selection of bloggers to try the products and share a little insight into life as a beauty writer.
As the editor of Beauty and Lace I was lucky enough to be chosen to participate in this campaign, and in the following post I will share with you a typical Monday:
7:00am: Part of beauty blogging is trying products and the easiest way to do this is by incorporating them into your regular routine. I have started using the Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamin and Extracts wash and scrub in the mornings for this feature, and I have to say I am really enjoying these two products.
You may typically think of Clearasil as a heavy duty pimple fighting brand, but this new range is designed for everyday use for girls who want clear skin in a more delicate way. I am a little obsessed with avocado and this is definitely an ingredient (avocado extracts) that stands out in this collection. In addition, there is Vitamin E, Glycerine and Pomegranate Fruit Extract which help to keep your skin feeling healthy and nourished.
8:30am: I have two young children and on Mondays they go to kindy and childcare so it is a mad rush to get everyone out the door on time!
9:15am: Gym! There is nothing like a good workout to start the week, and taking an hour out of my day definitely helps to clear the head and get me focused. Two things that really do help a girl to have more confidence are fitness and a clear complexion.
10:30am: Our lovely eco writer Vanessa always has a new post waiting to be published on Monday mornings; it is always a surprise to see which unique natural product she has discovered. The morning continues with responding to emails, general admin duties and scheduling any posts that the girls have written.
11:30am: I am currently working on a ‘foundation favourites’ feature, I had a few new products arrive in the post for consideration today and have been excitedly testing them all. The best part of being a beauty blogger is definitely discovering new beauties!
1:30pm: Lunch time – I like to aim for a healthy lunch but do like to include a cup of coffee in there as a little pick me up. On this occasion a friend dropped in and she had a test of some of the foundations and shared her favourites.
1:45pm: Painted my nails in a pretty pink shade…it’s for work, I promise!
2:00pm: For the rest of the day my eyes are glued to my computer and focused on writing new content. We like to try and schedule articles and reviews in advance and we rely on the scribble in our diaries to stay organised.
Most of my workday is spent at my computer which includes emailing and writing, as well as testing all kinds of interesting products. I do think it’s important to fit play into your day as well as good old fashioned hard work – and luckily for me, my work is actually really fun!
Evening: Once my children are snuggled down for the night I am often working late, I’m definitely not a morning person and in fact it’s 10:30pm as I am finalising this post…
Before bed I have been using the Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamins and Extracts wash (as you wouldn’t use a scrub every day) and my skin certainly looks and feels much softer. I will keep using both products as part of my daily routine and look forward to seeing how they work long term. While the regular Clearasil products do work well for many young people, it is nice to see a milder formula with less salycilic acid for regular use.
