Fall Skin Fab Not Drab Contest

Are you guys starting to notice drab winter skin? Tired of blackheads and blemishes? Are your pores getting larger, or are you having trouble trying to find the right skin cleanser? Well have no fear because The Fat and Skinny is here. Dr. Perricone has this great website that talks about great pore refining methods that are simple and easy to add to your skincare routine. Basically you should:
  1. Cleanse
  2. Tone
  3. Renew

Simple right?

The website also has great tips on using makeup to minimize pores. One of the Perricone products that is great for use in a pore refining routine is the Skin Clear Cleanser. According to the website, “This deep-cleaning acne cleanser helps to clear troubled skin by reducing excess sebum and eliminating surface contaminations. Skin Clear Cleanser contains the anti-aging ingredient DMAE, which helps to firm and tone skin. Green Tea Extract calms and clarifies while Allantoin helps encourage skin renewal.”

Luckily for you, Perricone and The Fat and Skinny are going to be giving away a bottle of Skin Clear Cleanser to one lucky reader.

Here are the guidelines:

  1. You must be from the US. Sorry international guys 🙁
  2. You must write a comment below telling me why you need this product, and tell me what products from the past have you used that haven’t worked for you like you thought they would.
  3. Contest ends next Wednesday, October 14!
