Teenagers in the House.

This is a compensated post written by me on behalf of Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.

Apparently my secret is out.  I have teenagers in my house.Advertisement

and I was trying SO hard to keep this just between you, me, and the lamp-post.  In hindsight calling one of them "veggie teen" might have been a giveaway...

You know what comes along with the teen years?

Zits.

yeah, we're going there...  partly because I was given a lovely free sample of an anti-acne wash but mostly because zits are funny. 

okay - yeah, they're not funny in and of themselves, but Zits is a funny word.  zits zits zits zits zits...  see, hilarious.

you know what ISN'T so funny?  being of an age where some might say "pushing 40" and still getting zits.  Wrinkles and zits... not a good combination - trust me on this one.

so - forget the teenagers - I just used this stuff myself.

Day one? not much difference...

Day two? is it possible that I actually am breaking out MORE?

Day three? ugh - yep - the classic North Star, good thing we're staying home today.

Day four? wait, are they already gone? 

Day five? clear skin...

seriously... so I shared with Veggie Teen... who tells me that he's been using it religiously.  He isn't allowing me to rub my hands all over his face to see how smooth it is (he's picky like that), but there is less redness...  and a girl did call him on the phone... so obviously something is working!

Me? well, no girls are calling me still... but remember that painting project last week that left me with a smurfy hue?  yeah - well, sometimes paint is a big pain to take off...  and since this stuff was right next to the sink and the soap and water had already failed...  ta-dah...  okay, it was actually still a bit of a job, but it DID work better than the soap... who knew?

so - thanks to Walgreens for introducing me to yet another of their Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products that we can't do without (seriously guys - I think the pharmacist recognizes me now... is that bad?)

Pharmacist

except mine is a guy... and he's usually greeting me with a box of allergy meds...

One last thing - Walgreens Way to Well Fund™ is a fairly new program that offers free preventive health screens in your community - every time I purchase one of the Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products I'm not only getting clean & saving $...  I actually am helping out some other people as well.  Win Win.  

 

Hey, you can't blame me for wanting a few more bonus points in the hereafter... with skin this soft it's hard to be humble :)

Consider today's comment a signature on my petition that people of my slightly advanced years should not have to contend with Zits AND Wrinkles... there should be a law.

Hey... you said no girls are calling you! What am I? Chopped liver?

(incidentally... where in the world did that phrase come from? chopped liver? scary to think that anyone, ever, could mistake anybody for chopped liver. ... yikes.)

It truly is NOT fair!
Really!

You are hilarious.
But I'm not mocking you in your dire circumstances or anything.
