Paula’s Choice RESIST Skincare Review [Sponsored]

Beauty

This post is sponsored by ShopStyle and Paula's Choice In 2001, I began working for The Body Shop. I managed the store in the Baltimore Inner Harbor.

These customers…

Over 40 Beauty: A Cure for Raccoon Eyes

Beauty

It doesn’t matter what brand of mascara I use, even if it’s waterproof I end up with it smudged under my eyes. Even if I don’t put mascara on my lower lashes I still experience it. Not only that, it’s usually more under my left eye than my right. Once at a concert in the bathroom I complained to my friend about my raccoon eyes and another concert attendees said…

Over 40 Beauty Review: Glossier

Beauty

A spin-off from the blog Into the Gloss, Glossier is a line of beauty products created by beauty editors with a focus on skincare and makeup being optional. This line is clearly created for a younger generation; from the college-aged models to calling their customer “girls,” I don’t feel as though I am their target demographic. But after endless online rave reviews, friends my age swearing by their products, and…

Over 40 Beauty Review: Perricone MD No Makeup Makeup Line

Beauty

So when I heard about Perricone MD’s No Makeup Makeup line I was intrigued. Products that will make you look polished without looking too done? Items that let your natural glow without your veins, ruddiness, and dark circles? When I…

Friday Favorite Lifestyle

Wait… what???? What the heck Alison, this is not a cool gadget for the home, a beauty product, or a silk pillowcase. Are you really hocking progesterone cream on your blog? Yes, yes I am. Because Emerita Pro-Gest Cream is my new BFF. I mentioned before my issues since getting an IUD and how my “new normal” still wasn’t that enjoyable. I had become a walking Midol ad, and on…

Over 40 Beauty: Sensodyne True White Extra Fresh Toothpaste

Beauty

When I was a kid I dreaded going to the dentist. I could just look at a lollypop and get a cavity, and dealt with sealants, wisdom teeth, retainers, caps for chipped teeth, and more. But once I was an adult, I looked forward to going to the dentist. Other than needing an NTI to stop grinding while I slept, my 6-month visits were positive, with the hygienist complimenting me…
