6 Weeks FAB Affair with Dual Repair AND Another Giveaway!

Now, you lovelies know how hard it is for a woman like myself with such an unhealthy addiction to beauty products to stick to a single product, no less a regimen for a certain period of time.  But, I promised my friends at First Aid Beauty I would commit to using the entire Dual Repair Collection for 6 consecutive weeks.  I cleared out a place on my vanity (so I wouldn’t be tempted to cheat) and set up the Dual Repair products like good little soldiers in order of application —  First Aid Beauty Dual Repair Power Serum  ($48)First Aid Beauty Dual Repair Eye Cream ($40),  and First Aid Beauty Dual Repair Face Cream  ($44).

Every morning and night I applied all three products and after the first few weeks (as I wrote about here) I noticed substantial results in the texture of my skin and its usual hyper-sensitivity.  As we all know my drama queen skin tends to take any tiny environmental or hormonal change and blow it up into a huge ugly tantrum that usually results in red patches and whiteheads. Lovely.  I’ll just say there have been a lot of both environmental and hormonal changes in the past 6 weeks that would usually put my skin into a tail spin, but instead it was like the Dual Repair Line shook my skin’s shoulders and gave it a pep talk, “Be strong! You don’t have to overreact to every little problem!”

My Torrid Love Affair with First Aid Beauty Reaches a New Level of Love

We all know I have sensitive drama queen skin (mainly because I won’t shut up about it) which means most anti-agers are strictly off limits. You can imagine my elation when I heard one of my favorite brands, First Aid Beauty (FAB), is launching a line of anti-aging products specifically for sensitive skin called FAB Dual Repair.  My elation hit a ridiculous level (like chanting OHMYGOD OHMYGOD over and over again until my husband demanded to hear the news) when I found out they wanted me to be a FAB Dual Repair Blogger Ambassador, representing their brand and their new product line.    Now, you should know I’ve had the chance to work with brands prior to this but I was never interested because I wasn’t passionate about the brands (which means this was my first OHMYGOD OHMYGOD since I was made a finalist in the Allure Beauty Blogger Awards).  What got me about this opportunity was that I knew I would have zero problem raving about the FAB products since I’ve been doing it since the inception of my blog…

My review of First Aid Beauty’s 5 in 1 Face Cream SPF 30 was my second blog post in the history of this blog and the very first product review. This means that among my piles and drawers (and let’s face it closets) full of beauty products, I was more passionate about this face cream than any other product.  That’s love I tell ya.  I declared it “the soul mate for my sensitive skin” and that it was one of the very few beauty products I would never cheat on (though I’m cheating on it now with the FAB Dual Repair, but that doesn’t really count since I stayed in the family. Note: this rule does not apply with husbands, only skincare).
