What’s the difference between face scrub and face wash?

Face scrubs have a gritty texture to wash away dead skin cells that lie buried deep in your pores. They have a thick and creamy consistency for smooth application. However, most dermatologists discourage the usage of face scrubs on acne-prone pores and skin. Recent products have offered super answers for this problem. They use soft microbeads that don’t irritate the skin. A stellar product that you can attempt is the Honeyskin Organics’ Organic Microdermabrasion Facial Scrub Exfoliator which makes use of undoubtedly charged microbeads to tug pollutants and dirt from your skin. On other hand, face washes have a creamy or foamy texture, which without difficulty glides over your skin. They lack the gritty texture of face scrubs, which can put off dead pores and skin cells. The foam is intended to smooth the dirt from the floor of your skin.

Some of the benefits of frequently using face wash are

Removes Build up
Washing your face helps get rid of the dust and oil that accumulates at some point of the day. The great way to dispose of them is to use a face wash that fits your skin type.

Boosts hydration
The ordinary use of face wash can help maintain the right pH tiers of the pores and skin. If you’ve got an imbalanced degree of hydration, then you emerge as more liable to dry or oily skin.

Maintains clear skin
Removing the dust can inhibit the increase of acne-causing bacteria.

Here are the benefits of face scrubs:

Removes toxins and dead pores and skin cells
The exfoliating agents help remove toxins and dead pores and skin cells that are buried in your pores. As a result, you get sparkling and radiant skin.

Improves blood stream to the pores and skin
As the face scrub allows stimulates the pores and skin, the blood stream on your face can be improved. This effects in younger looking skin.

Removes deep-seated dirt
Using face scrubs can help put off the dirt that can’t be eliminated by way of face washes alone. This leads to blemish-free pores and skin.

How Does Victoria Secret Choose What Coupons To Send?

Today when I arrived home from work I checked the mailbox. Imagine the thrill I got to see Victoria Secret had sent me some coupons. As I’m sure everyone knows I shop often in the Victoria Secret beauty section. Due to me being plus sized I have never shopped in the intimate section of Victoria Secret. Every time I make a purchase at Victoria Secret I’m asked for my phone number and email for coupons. I of course give the information immediately. I have always been told by the sales associates that in order to receive coupons I need to give that information. I have also been told that the more I give that information the better coupons I will receive. 

Don’t you think that since Victoria Secret is keeping track of my information for coupons they could also be keeping track of what I have been purchasing? Therefore they should know that I have never purchased a pair of panty’s or bras. Yet every time I get coupons I get a free pair of panty’s and some sort of discount on bras. Normally I give these coupons to a friend who greatly appreciates them but still it’s a huge disappointment for me when I open the card. Many times there is also a 20% off a single item purchase. I’m also very perplexed with this as well. Why only on one item? Why not 20% off your total purchase? Seems like an inadequate discount on items that are pretty costly to start with. 

What would I like to see the next time Victoria Secret sends a coupon flyer to my mailbox? I would like to see the free panty coupon replaced with a free fragrance body mist. Also instead of getting a 20% off an item coupon. I would like to see a 20% off your entire purchase at the very least. Last but not least I would like to see a discount on a perfume instead of on a bra. If I received this coupon flyer I wouldn’t be able to wait to get to the store.

What I did with my love for Bath & Body Works & Victoria Secret!

Like many others I have a great love for the fragrance products from Bath & Body Works and Victoria Secret. I find each store very intoxicating. I love everything from the variety of scents to the pretty packaging. I could roam each store for hours smelling each bottle and very carefully selecting a new scent.   
Anyone who knows me know that not only do I love all of the “smell good” items I also love to get a good deal. Over the many years I have been a Bath & Body Works customer they have always provided multiple coupons. I have been known to wonder the store for hours trying to figure the best way to maximize a coupon. Today I have taken my love for the products and combined that love for getting a good deal into Simple Treasures For Sale

Discovering Victoria Secret Beauty

As a plus sized woman I never really paid much attention to Victoria Secret before 4 years ago. As far as I knew Victoria Secret had nothing but underwear that would never fit me. Imagine my surprise when I was doing my normal sprint through the mall in my lunch break from work to Bath & Body Works for the Semi-Annual Sale and lay my eyes on a whole table of Victoria Secret Beauty items. I immediately stopped and selected a few trial sized items. I then how to venture into the store to pay for my selections. I then discovered there were two sides of the store, an underwear side and a beauty side. I remember leaving thinking all this time I have been missing this. 
Of course I fell in love with my trial sized items and went back the next day to shop for more. I loved everything from the fragrances to the makeup items. I was very disappointed when they discontinued most of the makeup items. I felt that I hadn’t had time to enjoy all of the different kinds of makeup that were offered. I found that I loved the liquid eye liner which I hoard today. Today the have limited their makeup offers to lip gloss and makeup accessories.

I love the many different fragrance items in the store. Perhaps it has come with age but I didn’t have the same compulsion to purchase all the fragrances the store offered like I did when I first started shopping at Bath & Body Works. I have been more selective with my fragrance purchases from Victoria Secret. My personal favorite has been Heavenly. I love the softness of the scent. Personally I prefer to match my perfume with my shower gel. I must say I was upset when Victoria Secret decided to stop making the shower gels.

In short if I hadn’t stubble upon the semi annual sale I would have never entered the store. I had dismissed it as a place where a plus sized woman didn’t belong. I most definitely learned a lesson that day. However I learned a lesson I must say I still feel intimidated going into the stores that don’t have a separate beauty side of the stores. I especially feel odd when going into the stores that have the beauty section in the back of the store. Sometimes I feel that people are staring at me when walking into the store.

With all my insecurities concerning shopping in the store I still enjoy going into Victoria Secret. A very fond memory is the day I met my closest friend. I was there and saw a woman I knew from work. We weren’t classified as friends just two people who worked at the same place. I normally avoid people I recognize while shopping because I’m a loaner basically. For some reason at that moment I approached this woman in Victoria Secret and said hello. This was extremely odd for me especially to approach someone you barely knew while they were selecting their underwear. I guess that broke the ice for us because we became fast friends and haven’t separated since
