Hello everyone! I know it has been forever and a day since I have posted. I hope this post finds you happy and in good health. 2020 went the exact opposite of what I thought it would be. I had so many plans for this blog and my beauty Instagram page (@ansbclassicbeauty), but that clearly did not happen! 😫 I can’t complain, though. I have managed to stay healthy and lose weight (weight loss blog post coming soon!).
I have not worn or bought makeup in over 8 months. This was due to quarantine and my skin being in such bad shape for the greater part of the year. I have suffered from acne since I was 12 and had flare-ups for various reasons throughout the year. This past spring and summer, I had the most painful cystic hormonal acne covering both of my cheeks for months, and nothing seemed to help. I was prescribed a couple of different topical medications that did not help and sometimes seemed to make the acne worse. It was so frustrating because I was eating so clean, drinking a gallon of water a day, and exercising regularly. I felt so great, but my face looked terrible. I started birth control a couple of months ago, and it has helped so much. I still have lots of hyperpigmentation, but I can finally apply foundation without it looking so cakey. I plan to share more of my acne journey here. I bought some new face products, and I want to document/share what does or does not work for me.
Have you noticed anything different?!?! I updated my website! I switched from Blogspot to WordPress last week. I thought about making the switch about a year ago but got so flustered with the technical side and decided to stick with Blogspot. Last week I realized I would have way more freedom with customizing my website if I switched to WordPress. I am so happy I made the switch, but I am slightly overwhelmed. I almost hired someone to build my site because I was getting so frustrated, but I finally got it together. I am still making some changes, but I am happy with the progress I have made. What do you think of the new site?
Finally! I have a little haul from a recent Amazon purchase. I picked up some new complexion products because I tossed quite a few of the ones I had. I wanted to get some new products to review, so I picked up a new (to me) foundation, two primers, and a concealer. Below is a photo of what I got. It just arrived today, so stay tuned for a review within the next couple of weeks.
Thank you so much for reading! I am super excited to bring more content to this blog. Don’t forget to subscribe via email to be notified when I post!
