    #itsallclear :: My Acne Story + Murad Giveaway!

    Press sample

    Once an acne-ridden duckling. I have suffered from acne for as long as I can remember. And yes, it did affect my self-esteem when I was a teenager. The night before our senior high pictorial, I was looking at the mirror and cried in silence "why me? why do I have all these zits?" I've always felt alienated because my friends were blessed with beautiful and flawless skin.

    Was it a face with acne or acne with a face? So Ms. Whitehead and Mr. Blackhead inaugurated Zitville, and around it they scattered oil and drilled craters. Humor became my outlet in dealing with this curse, after all what would self-pity do? With my wallet drained, no thanks to uneventful treatments, I accepted the fact that even in my adult duck years, acne is etched in my destiny.

    Finally after one million light years (translated to turtle-slow-over-three-weeks-in-transit), Dominique and Catherine arrived, desperately seeking for their mama's interminable love and attention. Impatient mama welcomed both dehydrated babies with mixed emotions: glad that they are home but swearing in high notes never to order again direct from NARS website. Boy at this day and age, any big time company that utilizes Smart Post isn't smart. And please, Hawaii is part of the United States, ever heard of USPS flat shipping rate? #endrant
