Re: Beauty Purchases 5/20/21

I got both of the cancer beauty bags from HSN/QVC---and am using a few of the items--fyi---QVCs bag was very disappointing--threw about half the stuff out. But still for a good cause.

Hii i had mentioned on a thread last week that I had cleaned out products that went off i or didn't use any longer .  I have simplified my makeup. Last week I purchased from the UK brand Look Fabulous Forever.  It is a line created for older women by Tricia Cudsen back in 2013 when she was 65 . I was so pleased with everything I purchased their  finishing powder and highlight pen  yesterday.

Re: Beauty Purchases 5/20/21

Good morning!

 

I'm still waiting for my Tweak'd TSV so I guess that qualifies as a purchase even though it was almost 2 weeks ago and I haven't received it yet.

 

Yesterday I purchased HSN's Lancome TSV.  Have never tried Lancome mascara, have always wanted to and the TSV was too good of a deal to pass up.

 

Purchased another bottle of Paula's Choice Niacinamide 20% treatment.  I see some improvement in my skin using this but not sure its enough to warrant the cost.  Anyway, willing to give it more time so bought another bottle.   

 

Hope everyone has a good week and stay safe!

How sweet of you Smiley Happy  Thank you!  

 

So you use it to remove your makeup?  I've only used it once so far and used it as a toner.  I double cleanse with an oil and a rice wash so I don't believe I need a toner to remove makeup.  I applied it as a hydrating step.  Is that ok?  I may need to go back to her webpage and read up on it.  Heaven help me if I decide to drink it! LOL  It's such a lovely bottle too.

20% Niacinamide is too much!  I've  heard it from every single skincare guru I watch on YT.  It will either just not do anything more than a lower percentage or it can cause skin issues.  Here is a really good video on Niacinamide.  She is a cosmetic dermatologist.

MY SKIN LOVES THIS STUFF!

@monicakm   I use the toner after I cleanse my face to remove any traces of makeup left.

@marmarbrooklyn    Thank you.  I will check it out.  Have a great weekend.

 

Okay I checked it out. What a great website and she stole my idea of makeup for mature skin.  LOL   Really, I always thought we needed makeup for mature skin.  Of course I purchased something could not resist.  I purchased the Beauty Balm.  I was reading the reviews and came upon a woman with my type of skin and she said it worked perfectly.  I'm on her mailing list.  I think in my mature years I am turning into a beauty addict.  LOL  ----- but I'm having fun doing it.
