I accidentally posted this without before and after pictures the other day, I apologize. Here they are! Wow, nothing like letting it all hang out..lol.
Ok you all know by now that my BB cream, coconut oil and gel cheek blush get me out of bed..but this stuff makes me want to do BACK FLIPS!
I’m talking about L’oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Skin Smoother SPF 30.
It is truly A MIRACLE!  I put it on the left side of my face first.  30 seconds later..OMG!  My daughter and niece were sitting with me waiting for results. My nieces eyes became HUGE she said “Go look in the mirror NOW, I can NOT believe this!  It worked! ” I shit you not my mouth dropped open when I saw the results. Excuse my language, but I am NOT messin’ around!  Not when it comes to magic “anti” wrinkle cream!
That’s what I’m going to call it! Anti-wrinkle cream..because THAT’S what it is!
It also blurs uneven skin tone. I have a large patch of melasma on my forehead. It wasn’t covered completely, but it was definitely less obvious.  Then the BB cream made it totally disappear.

It clearly without any doubts made a HUGE difference in not just fine lines but the deep lines also.
I SWEAR..WHICH IS WHY I KEEP TYPING IN CAPS!
Ladies GET this. $19.99 of pure magic.
It feels soft like cashmere. I also put some BB cream on,  L’oreal also, although I didn’t really need to.
After 15 minutes it just looked better!

The only thing I would suggest is if you use it under your eyes make sure you use good mascara or waterproof as mine ended up under my eyes. My bottom lashes touch my face so I’ll just not cover my bottom lashes to the tips. I’ll give up “bottom lash length” for this every day..who cares anyway.  This makes me excited and hopeful!

Hey, whatever works right?

I’m going to write to L’oreal. I may not be THE face of L’oreal, but I AM their real everyday face! Maybe I’ll get a coupon..one can only hope.

Being in my situation, the stress, sadness, anger and a few bouts of sheer terror has taken a huge toll on my faith. A toll on my psyche and an obvious toll on my body.

This product is helping me fight..cancer SUCKS!  My brother in law is coming home August 5th! He BEAT IT!
I’m going to leave my “post” here at my sisters and go home looking and feeling strong, beautiful and ready for my new life, as it can never be the same.

I always say “fake it til you make it”. If you use this cream you won’t feel like you’re faking it! You’ll feel BEAUTIFUL.  One step closer to pure joy from beauty products. Who knew it could be so healing?

Give it a shot!  It’s totally worth it. Let me know what happens for you..I wish everyone happiness for $19.99. OK, It may not make you happy forever,  or at all if you’re severely pissed..BUT YOU’LL LOOK GREAT NO MATTER WHAT!

Great Beauty Mask!

mask

I know it’s Thursday, but I forgot to post yesterday about beauty.

I have found a WONDERFUL beauty mask.  My sister found it on Pinterest, and we have all been using it since.

It’s so easy it’s stupid. 

Pour some honey in your hand, like 3tbsp, shake a bunch of cinnamon on the honey like 1tsp,  now put about 1/2 tsp of ground nutmeg on it and smush it all together.

Put it all over your face, don’t rub too hard.  The cinnamon will tingle, may even sting a bit.  Stay AWAY from your eyes and lips.

Leave on for 20 minutes than rinse off.  Your face will look great and feel incredibly soft!

I noticed after I rinsed it off that the red spots on my face were redder, but it only lasted a few minutes.  When I put moisturizer on after (do this) I couldn’t believe how soft my skin was.  The softness lasted two days.

The Absolute BEST Product For Curly/Wavy Hair of Any Type..I Promise!

curlshairtwirl around

Hi!

I’ve been recovering from my recent hysterectomy.  4 1/2 weeks later I’m still not 100%, but I’m up and about now.  This means doing my hair again..lol.  I had an excuse for about a week.  I have curly, wavy long fine hair.  I have a lot of hair but it is very fine so it’s hard for me to find products that help with the curl, stop the frizz, but don’t weigh my hair down even more than the length does.

I stumbled across this product by accident.  My sister had it under her sink and I thought “What the heck, I’ll give it a shot.”  So, I used my Kenra blow dry spray and THEN I used Paul Mitchell’s Twirl Around.  The Twirl Around is a “crunch free curl definer”, as said on the bottle, and they aren’t lyin’! 

This product is wonderful.  Especially in the wet or humid weather we have been having.  I can allow my hair to air dry with this product, which I haven’t been able to do AT ALL since I’ve let it grow so long.  I don’t have to wash my hair every day with this either.  I usually wash my hair everyday because my scalp is oily and my hair is fine.  Unlike MJ, my hair doesn’t look shiny when I don’t wash it, it looks greasy…it looks like I don’t care about myself.  MJ is so lucky!!  I tried everything she does.  I noticed that I can do it in AZ, but not here in WA.  I think the extremes in the weather are to blame.  I love my hair when I visit her.  Here, not so much, but I wouldn’t give it up either.

The product seems and is very thick coming out of the bottle.  You’ll think “omg, I’m putting glue, or wax in my hair” but you will soon see when you scrunch it in, like a good moisturizer it just melts into your hair and brings those waves and curls out!

I only write about a product if I truly LOVE it.  I LOVE Paul Mitchell’s Twirl Around and I would suggest this product to anyone, any and all hair types.  I have even straightened my hair after applying it, and it worked wonders for that too.  When I straightened it, it didn’t “flow” as freely as I like, but it maintained the style the entire day, and that day, weather wise, sucked.  There was wind, rain, hail and frozen rain, I am not even kidding.

Let me know if you give it a try and what you think! 

Here’s to great waves, fun curls and an even better attitude…for me at least!

I edited the post and inserted today’s “hair” So, this is after waiting in the rain and wind for 15 minutes for a late bus. Not too bad considering the wind is 15 mph sustained! It looks even better when it’s not wind blown and wet!
I added another of curls UNDER my hair. This is after all day, no brushing, no curling, just actual shiny curl! I usually have to hide the underside, or curl it. I hope that wasn’t overkill, but I was shocked to see the nice “almost” ringlets!
