Olay Cleansing Infusion

lifestyle & beauty, Reviews By January 26, 2019 Tags: , , , , No Comments

This is an older post that I was going to put up earlier, but was a bit sidetracked by personal issues. My feelings about the product haven’t changed, however, and I still feel that it’s relevant, so I decided to go ahead and post it. — 5FG

Winter weather has returned to wreak havoc on our skin. Life at this time of year (the holidays) can be hectic enough without also having to deal with tight, dry or even flaky skin on our faces. While making a recent drugstore run, I came across a couple of new cleansers from Olay. I picked one up to give it a try and see if I would add it to my regular winter skin routine. 


Exuviance At-Home Chemical Peel

lifestyle & beauty, Reviews By October 20, 2018 Tags: , , , , No Comments

I love skincare. I don’t think that’s a secret to anyone who  has read this blog for a decent amount of time. As I get older, I am far more concerned with spending my time – and money – on taking care of my skin first, and then putting something pretty and fun on it later. And for some time now, I have tossed around the idea of doing a chemical peel.


TonyMoly Changing Magic Foot Peeling Shoes

Alright everyone, things could get a little ugly in this one. We’re going to talk about feet this week, and I cannot tell you how much I am having to muster my courage to do it. I am not a lover of feet. While I’m not completely repulsed by them, I certainly would not pay the dues for the fan club. I don’t even get pedicures because the thought of a stranger touching my feet (who isn’t a medical professional) gives me the willies. I have always done my own foot care and I’m completely content with that, thank you very much. I recently picked up a newer product from K-Beauty gurus TonyMoly that could potentially upgrade your at-home pedi game.


Andalou Naturals Soothing Skincare Line

I have really been enjoying my adventures inΒ natural skincare, so I thought it was time to continue on my journey and sample products from another organic line. This time I chose Andalou Naturals, a company that I am somewhat familiar with through marketing, but not from personal experience. I know it is a well-established and popular brand, so making this my next choice was pretty much a no-brainer. I have noticed as I age (and since my cancer treatment) that my normally sensitive skin now gets red and irritated more easily than it used to, so I opted for their 1000 Roses Soothing line, offering a few products to help get your skin happy and under control.


Revlon Kiss Plumping Lip Creme

With the warm weather finally hanging around, I’m steering away from heavier products like liquid lipsticks and those with matte finishes, and more toward glosses. They are a great way to get the color you want and still maintain a light texture that is comfortable enough to wear all day. Revlon recently released a ten-shade collection of lip cremes that claim to also be able to plump your pout. I recently put a couple of them to the test, and decided to share my thoughts.Β Revlon Kiss Plumping Lip Cremes
