I’ve been a beauty editor for more than a decade and I didn’t fully understand my skin type until I met esthetician Renée Rouleau. That’s a little embarrassing considering how much reporting I’ve done on skin care. But here I was, using heavy, pore-clogging products wondering why my hormonal breakouts around my jaw were out of control. Rouleau’s products are that good, but they aren’t cheap. That’s why you have to hop on the Renée Rouleau skin care sale while you can.
The entire site is 15 percent off for her anniversary sale, which discounts some of Demi Lovato and Lili Reinhart’s favorite products. That’s pretty much the only thing I have in common with these celebs. Rouleau taught me things I didn’t realize about my skin. It turns out, my face isn’t as dry as I thought and the bottom half around my chin and jaw actually overproduces oil. Well, that was news to me. A year later after taking Rouleau’s advice, I haven’t had a PMS breakout in months.
I also learned my skin is a lot more sensitive than I thought and it’s important for me to mix in hydrating, calming products with the actives that I love. Rouleau’s products are seriously sensitive-skin friendly to reduce redness and irritation. Your skin doesn’t have to hurt for products to be effective. Beauty is not always pain, you know.
