Gold Bond Rough and Bumpy Skin Therapy Cream

As colder weather arrives, we’ll all be wearing warmer clothes that cover a lot of skin. The problem is clothing, constantly rubbing against our skin, causes irritation that often produces bumps and rough patches.

I saw this body cream and decided to give it a try. It works fantastic as an all over cream, however on the backs of the arms and legs (that are often trouble spots) it really shines. My skin has never been smoother!

I highly recommend this excellent and very affordable product. It can be found at drugstores, Target, Walmart, and of course Amazon.

Some Things Do Get Better

Our family has had many struggles going back to the beginning of our marriage. Our oldest son received a liver transplant when he was a child. Along with that hard thing, we have experienced many other difficulties that left me struggling to believe that I would ever again see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

What I have thought about lately and wanted to share with you is that even tough things, including chronic health issues, can get better over time. We have had both physical and mental health problems that were extremely serious, and some have improved dramatically, albeit slowly, over time.

I want to encourage anyone that may read this post and feel discouraged, perhaps almost out of hope, to take heart and just keep pressing on. It is just as easy to believe things can change as to think things can’t, and to be honest; you don’t know how things will eventually play out.

My life verse~

I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Psalm 27: 13-14

God Bless!


Madison Reed Hair Color

Many years ago, I discovered by accident that I have an allergy to hair dye. I ended up at the emergency room having to go on a round of steroids to get rid of the horrible rash I developed.

This allergy to hair dyes became a huge problem for me when I began to gray. I found out about Madison Reed Hair Color through an internet search on how to solve my quandary of coloring my hair with a hair dye allergy. I kept reading about good experiences regarding women with sensitivities using this brand so I thought I would give it a try.

I had much anxiety because of the terrible experience I  previously had that required medical attention. To my amazement, I did not react! Madison Reed provides good gray coverage as well. The cost is $19.95 on auto delivery (you choose the frequency) and $5 for S/H. This brand is not inexpensive, however, if you have hair dye allergies like I do it is a godsend!

IT Cosmetics Makeup Brushes

Back when I started this blog, I made a comment on this post about the need for good makeup tools.

Makeup brushes are essential. If you do not have a good set of makeup brushes, it may be why you struggle with makeup application (it certainly was for me). I have recently purchased several makeup brushes from IT Cosmetics, and I’m enchanted!

As you age, your facial skin becomes more sensitive, and the need for softer tools makes makeup application so much more pleasant. IT Cosmetics makes the softest brushes I have ever felt! I have watched the founder of this company, Jamie Kern Lima, on QVC, and it’s evident she is perfectionistic with her line.

I purchased my particular brushes during a 20% off sale at Ulta.  As far as makeup tools go, these brushes are one of the best purchases I have ever made. I know I will enjoy them for years to come and that they will continue to make my makeup application so much easier. Good makeup brushes make your other cosmetics look like superstars!

Here over here and take a look at these brushes, I think you’ll love them!
