beauty product junkie

junkie...that's the nice version of what I used to call myself and no I won't say the old DH said no cursing in the new year. I know. Talk amongst yourselves.

this guy is a genius...Ole Henriksen...I found this set years ago and swear by it. I try everything but this kit I always keep in stock:

Three Little Wonders ($101 Value)

three little wonders kit

I'm thinking of ordering this...

I've heard great things about it but still on the fence.

One thing I've learned from experience and what I keep telling my younger sisters...if there's one "Key Rule": over 40 = (your old cleansing regimen) + retinol

I love me some Neutrogena but they changed their formulations and at 41 I'm not a big fan right now. I found this recently and like it, doesnt cause breakouts, seems to work:

RoC Retinol Correxion Sensitive Night Cream

Roc Retinol Sensitive

These are on my "try" list:

Jane Iredale mineral foundation

Acqua Di Parma Colonia Men's Fragrance

Dr. Lewinn by Kinerase Under Eye Recovery

So I read an article on Jennifer Aniston and her beauty routine...she must have a movie coming out. Oy. Anyway - these are supposedly her key products so of course I'm taking notes:

Automatic Lip Pencil Duo
Estee Lauder, fig

in the way overpriced category we have  Mila Moursi Rejuvenating Serum and Cle de Peau Beaute Eye Contour Essence (say that three times fast). These are a bit more affordable but still not sure I'd try them:

Moisturizing Day Cream

bronzing powder in Terre Ambre

this I've actually tried and it works nicely

"Hello Flawless!" SPF 15
 tiny picture, big price, for foundation anyway. La Mer

and finally good old neutrogena facial buy in the bunch

Neutrogena Original Formula Transparent Facial Bar - 3.5 oz



Favorite shops:
sephora (cant beat their free shipping and free samples, join "insider" club for extras)

QVC (check your favorite brands here, they usually have special deals, freebies, or just plain bigger sizes for the same $$)

Beauty Bar (free shipping, coupon codes, free samples)
