Review: Moisturize 911! Caffeinated Face Creme

What is the number 1 reason for acne? Would you say that it is oily skin? I would. But the real question is: Do you know what the number 1 cause of oily skin is? -- Would you be surprised if I told you it is UNDER-moisturization? If you had told me a year ago, that I would need to moisturize my face skin in order to keep down oiliness I would have laughed in your face. Actually, I'm sure I've done that more than a handful of times. It just didn't make sense to me that in order to keep DOWN oiliness, I would need to make it more... oily, and with other products, that's exactly what I was doing: layering animal fats onto my face in hopes to keep my pores from clogging. When you layer animal fats onto your skin, you're just ASKING for zits, blackheads and millia! It's essentially like rubbing a greasy hamburger onto my face and then hoping I don't get a pimple or ten. It's just not logical.

The biggest selling point for me with Perfectly Posh products is that they not only don't hide their ingredient list, but they actually BEG you to take a look through them and research what you're putting onto your skin. They're telling you that in order to have great skin, all you need is to use great products, with great ingredients. See for yourself!

Oil of Olay Ingredient list:
Moisturize 911 Ingredient list:

I got a sample of Moisturize 911 in my sample pack from the lady who is now my leader. It didn't take me long to see what was different about Perfectly Posh. When I opened it I kind of scoffed -- like "Ugh, that's like one use! No way I get to use that more than once." So I used it. Usually I use Oil of Olay. It's $9 a bottle and it would last me about a month and a half.

The first thing I noticed about Moisturize 911 is that it takes so LITTLE! I was surprised that I had so much left. I put a lot back into the sample container. I was very wowed by this one little factor. The next thing I noticed was that it just soaks right in and my skin felt like my normal skin. I didn't feel oily. I didn't feel greasy. I didn't feel like there was a coat of oil on top of my skin. I have never felt this way with a moisturizing product. My face skin was soft, but not overloaded with moisturizer. It didn't have that shiny look. It was heaven! I just looked like me! Both using so little and it's ability to soak in and not leave you with a sheen of oil on your face is due to the ingredients they use.

Fast forward and the amount that I would usually use of my Oil of Olay product, I was able to use for SEVEN DAYS! SEVEN! It just blew my mind! Sadly, I did finally run out of moisturizer and I kind of begrudgingly pulled out my Oil of Olay and sighed as I put it on my face. That's when I realized something. My face was burning! Mildly, but it was very uncomfortable. I thought back and I realized that it had always done this. However I was just dealing with it because it was the best over the counter moisturizer I had found. My face was oily. I felt like there was a thousand pounds on my face. It actually looked irritated. Had I always felt this way? Yes. I just didn't realize it because I had not ever tried a great product.

I washed my face. I called my friend and I placed and order with her instantly. The rest is history. I signed up to be a Perfectly Posh Independent Consultant the next week and I haven't looked back since. I am so happy to have found this magnificent company!

Another perk that I realized after the fact: It is caffeinated. I didn't realize what that meant until later. It perks up your face. If you're a mom like me, then there are nights you don't sleep more than 3-4 hours. Those days REALLY drag you down. What's wonderful about Posh is this: I can use the Moisturize 911, Impish eyes to perk my puffy eyes up, and a caffeinated lip balm and no one is the wiser! It ERASES sleepless nights. Some days when I have gone multiple days without sleep, I will use my Perk or Caffeinated stick. It tightens and keeps down puffiness that sometimes comes from retaining water around your menstrual cycle as well.
