My Signature Scent

I love Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Intense Eau de Parfum. There are a few reasons that I have chosen this particular fragrance as my signature scent. First, it smells fresh and green. I have never liked floral scents, and since so many women's perfumes and colognes are floral, I find it really difficult to find … Continue reading My Signature Scent

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

Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent Body Wash

There is an overabundance of body washes available to women today. You can spend a little or a whole lot! One of my favorite brands is Aveeno. I always return to Aveeno unscented products after I suffer a reaction to some "new" wonderful smelling body product. I was intrigued when Aveeno came out with their new … Continue reading Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent Body Wash


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

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

So many suffer from dry, cracked hands this time of year. (I know some parts of the country are having unseasonably warm weather this winter, others are having their normal fare of cold blustery days.) I personally suffer from very dry hands year round. I work from home and am constantly washing my hands by … Continue reading Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

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


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
