e.l.f. Cosmetics' New Skin-Care Set Soothed My Stress-Related Breakouts
When I first got word that our office was working from home, I left my apartment to shelter-in-place with my parents, packing only the essentials in a gym bag: a few shirts, a pair of jeans, a workout outfit, sneakers, eye cream, and a lightweight moisturizer. What I anticipated to be a two-week visit has turned into a two-month-plus stay, and the select skin-care products I packed just don't stand up to the added stress of the coronavirus. Monthly breakouts have turned into daily ones, my skin feels extra-dry and looks dull: the list goes on and on. Enter the e.l.f. Cosmetics Clarifying Skin Care Set.
Instead of dropping a paycheck to build out a new skin-care routine, I've incorporated this $18 combo into my collection to keep breakouts at bay. The small but mighty set includes Exfoliating Scrub, Acne Fighting Spot Gel, and Clarifying Booster Drops — a three-prong approach to healing pimples at any stage, pre- to post-pop. Let's break it down.
