Let’s Chat About Moisturizers

 

What’s new beautiful readers?  

Is it hot where ever you are? I refuse to complain about the heat but my hair hasn’t been out of a ponytail or a bun all summer.  

Moisturizer is my best friend.  It always has been but lately oh boy I don’t miss a day.  Also, let me share one of my favorite indulgences; LUSH.  Do you know their products?

This is NOT a sponsored post. LUSH is just one of my favorite brands and I love their products.  As for moisturizers lately I’ve been using bath oil from LUSH that’s in the form of “bubbleroons” which is a fun word.

My favorite is called Rose Jam and you can click on the link right there. Not only does it make my skin the softest it’s ever been but it smells glorious.

In the past I’ve used the “Scrubee” which is great and exfoliates but I don’t love that fragrance.  You might. though.

Also, LUSH has vegan options and they fight against animal testing. Always.  

Give it a try and let me know what you think?

Let’s Chat About Callouses

Let’s Chat About Callouses

Hello all of you lovelies!!

Has anyone told you today how fabulous you are? Well you are fabulous and thanks for being here.

Today we are going to chat about some good news as well as some not so good news.

Don’t worry, it’s nothing earth shattering is only about calloused feet.

Yes feet.  You know it’s so easy now to go out for a pedicure, there’s a Mani/Pedi parlor on every corner and are reasonably priced. If you are anything like me though, you might like to pinch a penny or two so mani/pedi might be off the list occasionally. Or, like me, I like the do-it-yourself method at times.

That is what brings me to the good news. I bought the rumored “Baby Feet” home foot mask this Christmas season, for all of the girls on my list. Kind of forgetting I even had one that I gifted myself I pulled it out the other day to give it a go.

I cut open the package, release the little booties and place them on my feet. Yes, gooey feeling but not horrible.  As per instructions I used the tape that is supplied to seal the baggies around my feet. Me, personally, put sock on over the booties.

The instructions state to leave the bags in place for one hour so I do. After the hour is up you are to wash your feet off. Oh, and I should mention that you are supposed to wash your feet prior to booting up. 

After you wash the gooey from your feet you are free to go about your normal day.  Now, if you read the instructions, it says that you will have better luck with the product if you soak your feet in warm water everyday.  Really? I’m going to make time for that? Nope.

Which here is the not so good news. Not too many callouses removed.  Some skin shedded off. More than the pumice stone usually gets off but not nearly the huge sheets flesh shown on the package and in the ads.

Moral of this story? Can you guess? Read and follow all instructions.

Let’s Chat About Moisturizers

Let’s Chat About Moisturizers

As I was about to write this, and it was planned a week ago, I noticed that our last chat was about the Hannacure mask. It would seem that Ge-Ge is skin obsessed. But why? After contemplating this (and petting little Ollie at the same time) I realized that our skin is the largest organ of our body. Think about that for a second; skin is an organ.  So, yes, beauty products are geared toward our looks but this skin of ours, this organ needs extra care.

Personally, I am a dry skin woman and I hate it. When I take off a pair of black leggings (you know the Mom uniform) there are so many dead skin cells I feel a bit nauseated.

When I was a teenager I was lucky and didn’t know it. My skin then was classic combination and had few break outs. Of course I abused that skin which is why I’m a fervent moisturizer fan now.

My routine with moisturizers varies but the one thing I have learned is to moisturize the neck!  Even if you are eighty years old and reading this, moisturize your neck and décolletage. (The décolletage, in case you didn’t know, is the flat expanse of chest skin below your neck and above the boobs. Mine is so sun damaged from sitting out on the lawn slathered in baby and tin foil covering the album “KISS Alive” to reflect more ultraviolet onto me. You know you did it too, don’t pretend.  Oh sometimes I used the Beach Boys “Endless Summer” album instead of KISS.

Today, having learned some lessons I keep a jar of store brand coconut oil IN THE SHOWER. Yep, that’s right. I slather it on like lard from the jar, right before I’m ready to step out. Now, if I was faithful in doing this I could probably prevent myself from puking every time I take off my leggings but who is perfect right? Not me for sure. Oh and the coconut oil, also took away the PK bumps on my upper arms. So, for a five dollar jar of coconut oil you can solve a couple issues. (It’s good for hair too but let’s explore that further another day.

After the shower and it’s time to get makeup of the first, absolute first layer is moisturizer. My two favorites are Neutrogena and Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion for daily use and I have a Kiehl’s  overnight masque that I love for bedtime.  My kids bought me that one year for a birthday gift so I’ve used that sparingly and it’s lasted all this time. Don’t look too closely at the photo ‘cuz you can see it’s a tad cruddy from love.

There is one other product in that photo that I bet you’ve not heard of before. It’s the  EGG MELLOW CREAM . I’m kid of a cheapskate so this is one I use very sparingly. It’s no joke. This cream REALLY firms your skin. So this one I use either at night or sometimes during the day if I’m doing a full makeup face and want/need some firming up. This Egg Mellow Cream I discovered in a Sephora Play box and immediately bought the full size, keeping the sample for travel. 

There you have it. A variety of moisturizers in  a variety of consistencies and price points. Neutrogena you can get at the drug store and it works wonderfully. It really does.

What’s your moisturizer routine? Let’s chat about it in the comments. I’d love to hear some new ideas.

Let’s chat skin care masks

Hello Beauties!

Here’s a quick post to link you up to a video I made when I tried what I  hear is the latest and greatest trend in at home skin care.

If you are old like me, these peel off and wash off at home masks are not news.

In the 1970’s (my era) a popular one was by Max Factor and it was strawberry scented.  Here’s a pic      fromGoogle, not my photo

.

Well, you’ll just have to watch my little vid to see if the Hannacure skin care mask really does make a person look like a Zombie or not.  Plus, if you are on Instagram check for #hannacure and see some other  silly folks like me giving this a go!

 

Please oh please like and/or comment after you watch. Even better subscribe! I don’t get this ugly for just anyone you  know.

 

Yours in technicolor,

Ge-Ge
