100% Pure Eye Creme

100% Pure Coffee Bean Eye Creme

I use this pretty much every morning. Dot a little under my eyes. It smells wonderful. Kind of chocolate-y coffee-y  yummy-ness.

I have always had super red cheeks. Sensitive and warm to the touch. I started looking into "calming products" - was not liking the price tags I was finding. But I noticed a lot of them had caffeine in them. So I am doing a little experiment of my own. Dotting a little of this on my cheeks under my tinted moisturizer the past few mornings.  Not seeing any difference, but its only been 2 days...

I see on the 100% pure website it comes in a tube now. I still have half a bottle left, wonder when they switched?  Anyway, $19.00 for an ounce. 
Well ...after dealing with 100% pure customer service, I would not recommend shopping with them at all.

Alpha Hydrox

I have used Alpha Hydrox AHA souffle for several years.
Good results, I get lots of compliments 
(the best one ever from a surgeon who thought he had the wrong chart, no way was I "that old"  
Well, oops, I was! )  that my skin looks young. I personally think all my fat fills in the wrinkles. 
And a good price, around $15 at the drugstore and a little goes a long way. 

I need to find something gentler (more gentle?) .
My skin is getting so sensitive, I have been searching for something that will calm down the redness. And I need some serious SPF that's not oily.

L'occitane Hand Cream

Yummy shea buttery goodness in a tube.
Smells wonderful, sinks in to my skin quickly and makes them oh-so-soft.

Would make a wonderful gift. $10 for a 1 oz tube at Sephora.

Josie Maran Argon oil

I'm back.
For how long? 
who knows?

Does anyone care?
probably not. 

I love this stuff. 

I got mine from QVC. But I have also seen it on sephora.

$48 for 1.7 oz at
But I think its worth every penny.
I have had my bottle for 2 months and I have barely made a dent in it! 
A few drops massaged into my skin after I wash my face in the morning, makes my skin soft all day.
Even though its an oil, its not oily - more like a serum. 
My always broke out chin even looks better! 

When I found out it was full of vitamin E I started rubbing some into the scars on my elbows every night. 
Not sure if it will make a difference, but it can't hurt. They are such big ugly scars, I hate them!
