Product Review: Avon ANEW REVERSALIST Renewal Foaming Cleanser

Product Review: Avon ANEW REVERSALIST Renewal Foaming Cleanser

Obsessed with skincare I’m always looking to try new facial cleansers that wash away the harsh effects of the day and leaves my skin feeling not only clean but moisturized and refreshed. It has been quite some time since I’ve used AVON but I’ve heard nothing but good things about the ANEW REVERSALIST line so […]

Get Lifted: Top 5 Products to Firm Your Skin

Get Lifted: Top 5 Products to Firm Your Skin

My mission in life  since I turned 50 has been to keep everything from my neck up tight. I’m not here to discuss the lower half… Interestingly enough, even though black women do not wrinkle as their fairer skin counterparts, (black don’t crack) our skin does show signs of aging with the loss of elasticity.  […]

Lust List: NARS, Peter Thomas Roth and Ouidad

I love fall.  Fashion is spanking new and so is makeup. With that being said, there are a gazillion beauty goodies out now that I really, really want.  As a matter of fact, I need them.  It’s hard to nail down, so no doubt there will be an updated lust list next week, but in […]

What I’m Loving Now: Vichy Aqualia Antiox 24 Hour Moisturizing Fluid

Double duty, even triple duty skin care products are always my first choice. I want one magic potion that can do it ALL. While I haven’t found a dream cream yet that keeps my face firm and helps me lose 25 pounds of unwanted fat simultaneously, I have started using a new daily moisturizer — […]

Clara Randle whose comment was: “I have hereditary dark cirles, but as I have both a)gotten older […]

Product Review: Relastin Eye Silk

I am absolutely obsessed with eye creams. At any given moment throughout the day, you can probably spot me dabbing something around my eyes, and most recently that has been Relastin Eye Silk. (I don’t tend to use products as recommended)  If everything else on my face falls apart, I will have smooth tight eyes […]

Win Perricone MD High Potency Eye Lift

I’m almost 53 and I don’t have a line around my eyes. And I’m sure that’s in part due to genetics, and also in part due to the fact that I am an eye cream fanatic.  I have used a gazillion eye creams, gels, lotions, masks — low and high end— and there are a […]

I’m Bringing 50 Back

What’s so bad about being 50? Or, should I say, what’s so bad about being a woman at 50. Well, there’s plenty I could complain about, but I won’t. Instead, think about the beauty of 50. So, I’m bringing 50 back. Sing it in your head. You know the song, that cute little Justin Timerlake, I […]

Your #1 Summer Accessory

What’s the one thing you wouldn’t be caught without this summer? I asked several friends that question via email, facebook and twitter and the number one summer accessory hands down was SUNSCREEN!
