The Eyes Have It

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

Flip through any magazine this fall, and you can’t help but notice all the extra emphasis on the eyes…. more specifically, the eyelashes. If the eyes are, indeed, the windows to your soul, then never before have the window treatments been more important!
To that effect, I have to tell you about my new mascara ‘love’ to achieve thick, full, sexy eyelashes.
Now, I’m not known for pushing products (well actually, I am!?!? :lol: ) But, I get no benefit from having this opinion, just the joy of sharing my experience with you.
I’ve been a huge proponent of DIOR’S DiorShow Mascara for a long time. While makeup artists say you’re suppose to throw out your mascaras after 3 months, I hang onto my DiorShow like grim death. Partly because I love it, but mainly because it’s so expensive to replace.
So, my new find is REVLON’S Grow Luscious. Big green tube. You can’t miss it. And, its only 7.99 at Target and WalMart (unless you want the waterproof version, then it’s 8.99) It’s fabulous! And, if you’re a layerer (is that a word?) like I am, then start with ALMAY’s One Coat Mascara (about 6.99) for definition and separation, and then really punch it up with Grow Luscious for maximum pizazz.
Just a little tip I thought you’d appreciate. Go to my FORUM and let me know how it works out for you.

New Summer Beauty Routine

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

Every once in a while a new product comes along that gets my curiosity up enough to want to try it. This summer’s find? Something called NutraSonic, a Facial Cleansing tool. It’s not the first electronic facial cleanser ever to be introduced, but the others I’ve tried that vibrate? bore me. THIS seems to really slough off the grime of the day, makeup and all, without being rough. (I’m leery of too many harsh exfoliators that, I think, strip the skin’s important protective layers and leave my skin vulnerable…. I’m a Florida Girl. I need to be really careful!)

So, here’s this tool that they say is gentle enough to use twice a day, every day. (I’m not that disciplined) But, two to three times a week? Okay. I’ve decided to see if it’ll make a difference in the way my skin looks and feels. Soft, soft soft are the attachment brushes, so that’s a good thing making it a great massage, too.

I’ve turned into a total electronics junkie in the bathroom … electric toothbrush, electric mirror, electric blow dryer, electric flat iron …. I’m starting to horn in on my husband’s bathroom counter space just for his outlets! “Honey, do you think you could use the Guest Bathroom this morning? I’ve got this new Cleanser that needs charging ….. “
