Pick one or the other for each of the questions below, and copy/paste your answers in the comments. Can’t wait to see your picks! Mine are listed below. 💋

This or That: The Skin Care Edition, Part II

  • Benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid?
  • AHA or retinol?
  • What’s a bigger concern for you: pores or pigmentation?
  • Skin care treatments: laser or chemical peel?
  • Tik Tok skin care trends: love ’em or leave ’em?
  • Enzymes or acids?
  • Face masks: exfoliating or moisturizing?
  • Fillers: yes or no?
  • For your bod: exfoliating lotion or exfoliating scrub?
  • Would you rather receive a ton of mini skincare samples from a brand you like, or a full-size skin care sample from a brand you’ve never heard of before?
  • For sunscreen reapplication, would you rather have a brush-on powder sunscreen (like the one by Colorscience) or a cream-to-powder compact (like the one by Avene)?
  • How often do you reapply sunscreen during the day: once, twice or three times (a lady! Sorry, I couldn’t help myself)?

Benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid?

Even though it’s such a pain in the @ss because it’s drying and stains towels and clothes (UGH), I gotta go with benozyl peroxide, because if I skip it, my pimples go into party mode and start taking over my face. SO RUDE!

AHA or retinol?

Retinol. Seems to irritate my face less.

What’s a bigger concern for you: pores or pigmentation?

Pigmentation, please go away. I will not have any more of you!

Skin care treatments: laser or chemical peel?

I’ll take a gentle chemical peel, please.

Tik Tok skin care trends: love ’em or leave ’em?

Love watching other people attempt them, but for myself, I’ll leave ’em.

Enzymes or acids?

Enzymes, in a face mask! Got my eye on this one by Jan Marini, by the way.

Face masks: exfoliating or moisturizing?

Moisturizing, because the exfoliating ones make my face feel like it’s about it fall off, LOL!

Fillers: yes or no?

Currently, no. I really want to keep it that way because I have all kinds of inner angst about the societal pressures placed on aging women, and in my heart of hearts I want to FIGHT THE MOTHER EFFIN’ POWER in any small way I can. (“Don’t tell me what to do, beauty industry!”) Buuuuuut, if I’m completely honest with myself, I’m not totally ruling it out for the future. Right now I’m still giving myself the permission to walk through that door if I want.

For your bod: exfoliating lotion or exfoliating scrub?

To quote TLC, “I don’t want no scrubs.”

Would you rather receive a ton of mini skincare samples from a brand you love, or a full-size skin care sample of a brand you’ve never heard of before?

I’ll take the mini samples, and if I can make a request, SkinCeuticals would be great!

For sunscreen reapplication, would you rather have: a brush-on powder sunscreen (like the one by Colorscience) or a cream-to-powder compact (like the one by Avene)?

Cream-to-powder, since the brush-on-powders tend to make skin feel dry and itchy.

How often do you reapply sunscreen during the day: once, twice or three times (a lady! Sorry, I couldn’t help myself)?

If I’m spending most of the time inside the house, then twice, but if I’m spending lots of time outside, then three or more.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

P.S. TGIF! 😊
