SYB Freebie: L’Oreal Dark Spot Corrector Collection

Hey ladies! First off, congrats to Alicia B., who won last week’s SYB Freebie: the Essie ‘Bikini So Teeny’ summer 2012 collection. She slyly mentioned that the periwinkle shade would be the perfect “something blue” for her wedding next month, while the other tropical hues would kill on her Jamaican honeymoon. How could I resist?

Another round of applause Ashli M., who won the second of my five Carol’s Daughter Transitioning 1-2-3 Kit giveaways! Gotta love a chick who names herself as her natural hair icon. Well okay then! Dope.

Win this dark spot-destroyer!

And now, onto this week’s SYB Freebie, the L’Oreal Dark Spot Correcting Collection, which includes the Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Serum and the Day Cream SPF 30 ($25 each). If you are a woman with brown skin, you’ve probably experienced hyperpigmentation hell (ie, the dark spots/areas that appear after a pimple, scratch or rash heals). It sucks. You finally got the zit to go away, and now you’re left with a dark mark that won’t budge! L’Oreal’s new duo contain powerful antioxidants and skin-brightening ingredients to fade the marks…plus mirror-like particles that reflect light and create dazzling radiance. Not to get all technical, but when the scientists were testing these products over 80% of women noticed more even-toned skin in just four weeks. Nice.

    Don’t sunbathe topless unless you’re certain you’ll be alone the entire time!!! When I was in college I was at home for spring break. Since I hadn’t had any sun in a while, I decided to lay in my backyard and tan. Of course I didn’t want any tan lines, so I went topless. Everything was great until my grandfather came back to do some yardwork!!!! I don’t know which one of us was more shocked and embarrassed, but we never mentioned or acknowledged what had happened from that day until his death years later!

    Don’t forget to wash the clay mask off your face before you leave your house. A few years ago I decided to stay home from work and have a day of beauty. About 2 hrs into my “spa day” a call from my daughters school had me running out the house to collect her. I realized my error within 5 minutes of leaving the house but since her school was 6 minutes from my house…., you can guess the rest. My crazy story ends with me washing off my face in the school bathroom, and taking her to pediatrician with a chalking face, looking like Vampira!
