Hello darling!

Summer season/vacation season/wedding season/selfie season is in full effect, and I’m sharing my favorite (and FAST ACTING) blemish busters to help you get your skin ready for all the events to come.

You may get the occasional blemish here and there, or you may notice a new little friend burrowing up to the surface of your skin on a regular basis. Either way, this list of tried and true products is sure to help you when you are in a bind.

If you’re like me, you’d rather be poppin’ champagne than poppin’ pimples. So let’s get right to it!

Caudalie Vine[active] Overnight Detox Oil

This detox oil is my absolute favorite, for many reasons! Not only does it work practically overnight, it also does NOT make my skin dry and crackly. In fact, it does the complete opposite (which seems totally counterintuitive, right?). Who would’ve thought; an oil that gets rid of your blemishes AND leaves your skin feeling like a baby’s booty. Best of all? It’s currently ON SALE right now on Amazon! Get it girl!

Boscia Detoxifying Black Charcoal Cleanser

I’ve always been a huge fan of charcoal masks, but let’s face it: we don’t always have time to sit around with a mask on our face. That’s why I love this cleanser, because you get the deep detoxifying benefits of a charcoal mask, without the hassle.

My favorite way to use it is to apply the product on DRY skin. This allows the cleanser to really get into the nitty gritty before getting washed off with water. It’s also super gentle, yet highly effective!

Side note: I also love using this cleanser on my underarms for days that I’m feeling, well… not so fresh! Shh, don’t tell anyone!

Shiseido Pureness Blemish Clearing Gel

So it’s been quite some time since my days as a makeup artist for Shiseido, but despite how many years has passed, this one item has been the G.O.A.T. when it comes to shrinking blemishes almost instantly!

I’m not sure why Shiseido no longer carries this line in major department stores, but thank God for Amazon, right?

This product is perfect for those stubborn on-the-spot blemishes. And although there are many products out there that contain the same active ingredient as this one (salicylic acid)… nothing seems to work better than this one! But like I mentioned earlier, this product has been discontinued in major department stores, so get it here while it’s hot!

Herbivore Organics Prism Exfoliating Glow Potion

One of the main causes of blemishes is, of course, clogged pores. The best way to prevent clogged pores is to exfoliate. But who has the time to do that? Not me. That’s why I love Herbivore Organics’ Prism Exfoliating Glow Potion, because it works as a serum (simply apply right before your favorite moisturizer), but also doubles as a gentle exfoliator. You don’t have to scrub it on, or wash it off, just apply and let it work its magic throughout the day.

This product has saved me mucho dollars on getting facials, because it leaves my skin with such a glow, it’s almost like magic!

One thing to remember is that the product can oxidize if you expose it to air for too long. Remember to seal it tightly in between uses to maintain the integrity of the product. It’s so worth it!

And there you have it. My favorite blemish busters! These are my favorite products that I recommend to my brides who need a quick fix before their wedding day. They work in a flash, and are products I use myself, and I hope they work for you!

Now, I want to hear from you! When it comes to your skin issues, what has been the single biggest challenge you’ve faced when choosing skincare products?
