Troubled Skin Care Routine

For those of you who don’t know – I moved back to Illinois from New York about 3 weeks ago. I lived in New York for half a year, and while it was a great experience, it turns out that the big city doesn’t mix too well with this Midwestern girl.

The fast pace, fragrant streets, and general grime stressed me and my skin out. Growing up I was #blessed with pretty docile skin. Redness here and a hormonal pimple there, but never anything too severe.

Well, that all changed when I moved to New York. Between clogged pores covering my nose and angry red spots on my chin and forehead the grimy air definitely impacted my skin in a not-so-glamorous way.

I spent more money than I’d like to admit on facemasks, spot treatments, and toners thinking that I’d stumble upon that one holy grail item that would make my problem skin a thing of the past.

Long story short: I didn’t.

Well, not until after I moved back to good ‘ol Illinois. Originally I thought that moving home would solve all of my skin woes, but as it turns out when you move from a dirty and grimy environment back to clean air; your skin does this charming thing called purging.

The week I came home my skin was worse than ever.

So when I got the opportunity to try the 4 Day Sensitive Skin Regime by nügg Beauty I jumped at the chance. And I was amazed by how much I loved it.


The treatment comes in four individual (recyclable!) pots so you limit the air that is introduced that can cause oxidation and render facemasks ineffective. The nügg Beauty masks also contain over 90% natural or naturally derived ingredients and aren’t tested on animals which is something I certainly feel great about.

There are different regimes depending on your skin type, and pre-NYC Morgan would have instantly gravitated towards the dry skin regime, but the new me jumped at the chance to try their 4 Day Sensitive Skin Regime that has a combination of deep cleansing and soothing face masks.

Now, you’re all probably wondering about the results and I’m nothing short of giddy to show you. Like I said, in New York I tried a lot of products that just didn’t work so I was a bit jaded and pessimistic so when the nügg Beauty masks worked? I was floored.

After just the first day you can see that my redness had decreased significantly, and maybe it’s just me, but I feel like my spots shrunk, too. My skin was already a bit better than it had been when I got home to begin with, but the 4 Day Sensitive Skin Regime gave me the final boost I needed to get back on the path of clear skin.

By the end of the four-day cycle I saw real results: my skin was noticeably clearer, and has stayed noticeably clearer.  There is a bit of scarring because I can’t keep my hands off my face, but I’ve had no new spots since the regime.IMG_9822

Additionally, I’ve always had an annoying dry patch of skin in between my eyebrows, and even one week later I’m flake free.

The regimes are really affordable so I’m stocking up on both the Sensitive Skin and the Dry Skin regimes to keep up with my results. And if you want to try the masks out for yourself use the code MORGAN10 to get 10% off through 9/30.

nügg Beauty also let me try out their Intense Lip Boosting Mask and no lie – this product makes me feel like a Kardashian in the best way possible. Lip masks are a new concept to me, but I don’t know why they haven’t blown up, everywhere.


I’ve always felt neutral about my lips. Didn’t love them, didn’t hate them. They were just on my face and I didn’t think much about them.

The lip mask, though, softens and plumps them to the point where I find myself pouting uncharacteristically in selfies just to show off my improved pucker. I like to put the mask on before bed so it has plenty of time to work its magic, and my lips stay nice all day.

Don’t forget that you can try out the nügg Beauty products for yourself with a 10% discount using MORGAN10, and be sure to let me know what you try
