Just for Fun

Just for fun, I thought I'd participate in this "Beauty Secrets" thing hosted by a young mother named Kelly.  Part of simplicity, for me, is finding something that works and crossing that decision off my list.  I do have some particular issues, and I have found some things that work for me.  While I'd love to talk lipstick shades and fragrance preferences,  tastes vary and I think it would be most helpful to highlight the real problem-solvers.

Skin Care:  For my blemish-prone skin, I use Clinique Acne Solutions soap, clarifier, and moisturizer.  I also use the emergency gel-lotion.

Sunscreen:  The very best facial sunscreen I have ever tried is Dr. Denese SPF 30 Defense Day Cream.  It is a tinted moisturizer with UVA and UVB protection.  It is sheer and looks like velvety skin.  It has never caused a breakout, and I never need a foundation.  I love using this every single day.

Hair Care:  I have naturally spiral curly hair that can be a true headache.  I apply Ouidad Climate Control Gel every day.  It has the best slip of any gel I have tried, and truly protects natural curls from frizz while never weighing it down.

Slimming:  Weight Watchers online.  I had always thought WW was for the very overweight, but I have found the online option to be perfect for those of us who are constantly battling those last five pounds. 

Smoothing:  This.  It hurts, but, with practice, it works, inexpensively and in absolute privacy.  That's all I'm going to say.


  1. Thanks for the links! I'm going to go poke around at some of them. :)

  2. I would LOVE to have hair that does SOMETHING! Spirals sound perfect to me!! I'm a new follower from Kellyskorner blog hop. Would love for you to check out my blog and follow back!
