CeraVe Healing Ointment

Cerave Healing Ointment was recommended by a YouTube blogger who also happens to be a dermatologist. Her channel is Dr. Dray (A Day in the Life of a Dermatologist) and believe it or not, she vlogs every day! I use this ointment primarily on my dry hands and it gives more relief than any department … Continue reading CeraVe Healing Ointment

bareMinerals

I have been wearing makeup since I was a young woman. The problem was after taking the time to apply it I was never truly happy with the way I looked. I think part of this was due to not using the proper tools (another post for another day) and partly the result of using … Continue reading bareMinerals

PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash

As others have said, age 50 is the gift that keeps on giving! One of those "gifts" is hormonal acne. I had heard this but thought since I didn't have acne as a teenager I was safe from this menace. Not so! During menopause, some of us get hormonal acne on our face, upper chest … Continue reading PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash

Living Proof No-Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner

I have struggled with frizzy hair for many years and feel like I've tried just about everything on the market that has claimed to help my unruly hair. Some brands are better than others, but most that do help contain heavy silicones. I have been using Living Proof's frizz shampoo and conditioner since the beginning … Continue reading Living Proof No-Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner

bareMinerals Brow Powder

It is said that at mid-life you begin to discover hairs where you don't want them and lose hairs where you do. Unfortunately, I have found that to be pretty accurate. One of the places we begin to lose hair is our eyebrows. It sneaks up on us and one day we're looking in the mirror … Continue reading bareMinerals Brow Powder

Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid

I am pretty fickle when it comes to skin care and cosmetics. Even though I certainly have my favorites (those things which have proven themselves over time to actually work) I still am drawn to all the new "latest and greatest" when they are launched. One item I never stray from is Paula's Choice Skin … Continue reading Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid

Scensibles

My product review this week is strictly for the ladies. It would seem we ladies always have "something" we need to dispose of discreetly. Many of us are guilty of thinking that when we reach menopause we will finally be finished with feminine care products. Au contraire! Menopause has many surprises for us - and … Continue reading Scensibles

Makeup Organizer

I purchased this makeup organizer from Target a few months ago. Prior to purchasing, I had picked up a couple of very inexpensive ones from Amazon. They were just cheap looking and functionally they held few products. This particular organizer can be bought in multiples and stacked if you have a lot of products you wish … Continue reading Makeup Organizer

Dermaplaning

Have you heard of dermaplaning? It is a process where you exfoliate while also removing the fine hairs (peach fuzz) from your facial skin. Using a tool such as a Tinkle Eyebrow Razor (see picture above), you hold your facial skin taut. Holding the razor at a slight angle, you shave your entire face (less immediate … Continue reading Dermaplaning

Too Faced La Creme Lipsticks

I know some women love traditional lipsticks, I am not one of them. I feel like the work it takes to apply properly isn't worth a look that only looks nice for a short amount of time. I've always preferred lip balms, they are easy to apply and reapply when necessary. I think for that … Continue reading Too Faced La Creme Lipsticks
