Estee LauderSaturday, October 23, 2010
A year or 2 ago, I dropped all my foundations and switched to Estee Lauder foundations. At this time I was in the process of using Benzoyl Peroxide to get rid of my Acne and using Estee Lauder foundations did not make me break out. This year, I wanted to try new other foundations and a new acne treatment (IDK WHY b/c My face was better than ever!) which was differen. I started breaking out really crazy and now I'm switching back to my old routines. Here are some things I bought.

Most people my age, try to avoid going to the Estee Lauder counter maybe because they think it's only for old people. To be honest, I thought it was.. since my mom has a few of their products. We all tend to visit the clinique, MAC, benefit, etc. counters. But I broke my barrier and tried out the Estee Lauder line because I read on Acne.org that many girl used this foundation and didn't break them out. I tried it and they were right!!!
