Thx Sephora, Loving the B-day Gifts

In the spring, I went to Sephora to pick up a few things with a friend of mine. When we were cashing out, I remembered that I'd lost my Sephora BeautyInsider card and thought, I might as well ask for a replacement.

The lady at the cash asked for my phone number and then in a very concerned tone, she said, "Oh no! You haven't picked up your birthday gift as yet". For a second, I was confused. I thought to myself, what birthday gift? My birthday was in January.

She handed me a little rectangular box that said NARS. I felt so special. Inside were two NARS Lip Pencils, one matte in Cruella (deep red) and the other satin in Rikygien (medium neutral pink). Great colors, quite possibly suitable for any shade of skin.

Sephora's Beauty Insider Club is on point. Not just for the gifts, Sephora actually thanks you for being a customer by rewarding you for spending your money! Do I feel motivated to go to Sephora for most, if not all of my beauty needs? Most definitely.

A big thank you to Sephora for my birthday gift!

My Secret? Olay Regenerist Multi-Sculpting Cream

I've always looked pretty young for my age but soon after my 40th birthday, I noticed that my skin was changing. I was losing my glow. I was dealing with little random dry patches, a very oily T-zone and mini acne breakouts that I hadn't seen since my teens. I couldn't seem to link these new symptoms to a change in my diet or a new product I was using. Then it hit me, the change my skin was going through was very normal for women over 40.

A lot of women in their 40's experience dryness, an oilier T-zone, and a return of acne. These symptoms are usually the effect of hormonal changes related to premenopause and menopause. Stress and having a sweet tooth can help to bring on adult acne too. I've been using Olay's Regenerist Multi-Sculpting Cream for a while and it works for me. It gives my skin just the right amount of hydration and has reduced the acne breakouts to a minimum. It's exactly what my skin needs and has become a regular item in my stash of skin …
