Disclaimer:  I do not work for nor do I own or invest in the following named brands.  Really.  Sharing is free.  


One of my core beliefs is that girlfriends share. You find a great store, you tell everyone.  The same with restaurants, vacation spots and sales.  So here I share with you.  


One of the things I have inherited is great genes.  I thought that meant great skin as well.  Actually it did, until I had my son at 35.  Everyone tells you things change, and boy did they.  I developed severe psoriasis about 3 months after I had my son......on my face! and hands, but ON MY FACE.    


I was devistated.  The one thing I had always had going for me was a pretty face.  No matter what my weight, which could fluctuate 30 pounds up or down, I had that.  Now that was gone and I still had the baby weight.  I couldn't put make up on, as I had open sores and cleansing and moisturizing became a search in vane.    


With the help of a dermatologist, I was able to keep thing under semi-control, but still suffered awful break outs.  Fast forward 3.5 years.  Watching TV I saw and heard about a brand of skin care that sounded too good to be true.  It came with a guarantee, so why not.  I had tried everything else and no success.  


OH MY GOODNESS!!!!  I was finally free.  Within 2 weeks my skin was clear, fresh and better than ever.  I had discovered Philosophy.  I now use nothing else.   Nothing.    


That following week I made a point of finding a new make up.  Something clean and without chemicals. I got on line and started research.  Bare Escentuals got the best reviews and the ingredients were what I was looking for.  They worked like a charm.    


For the past 6 years I have used nothing else.  I get asked all the time, what do you use, you have amazing skin?  Or, don't you ever wear foundation?  The answer, Philosophy and yes Bare Escentuals; I wear foundation every day.  No one believes I have psoriasis, and I almost feel like I don't.  I have shared this with countless Girlfriends and now I'm sharing it with you.
