COSMETIC MONSTER - WICKED COSMETIC CONFESSIONS WITH A WHIMSICAL TWIST

A Funny Thing Happened One Morning. About a month ago, I purchased Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Eye Treatment ($42.50) and it was sitting quite contently on my vanity. The hydrating but lightweight cream was really helping stave off any “hello, I haven’t had a quiet moment in 3 weeks” look that was confidently creeping up on me.

As I did my hair (in vain) one morning, I heard a commotion which included a “What’s that on her hand?”…which I admit, as part of my Mommy radar, I already knew what had ensued. Scroll to the end of this post to see what my two year old did to my glorious eye cream. LOL!

ILIKE FIBROUS STONECROP GEL MASKThe Mean Green Machine (well, Mask) – Ilike Fibrous Stonecrop Gel Mask ($42). A friend gave this to me since she was put off by the odd texture and color of this green mask. I’m glad I’m not texturally challenged, because I love this mask! It is pretty gross to look at – it ignited a round of “pond-scum” and “snail poop” jokes because it honestly looks like green slime with some odd pieces floating in it. But who cares!! This good and green smelling mask leaves skin smooth, totally hydrated, brighter and loads calmer too.

Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Cream ($250). And lots of it. After working a crazy amount of hours this past month and with my 39th birthday in a few weeks – I have to say, I’m looking a bit worse for wear. Like a silver angel, this lovely jar has pumped (or plumped) life back into my skin without making me greasy or breakout.

ESTEE LAUDER BCA PIN 2011Estee Lauder Limited Edition Jeweled Pink Ribbon Pin ($12.50).

IS CLINICAL SUPER SERUM ADVANCE PLUS

A killer antioxidant serum is an absolute must if you want to prevent premature aging of the skin. iS Clinical Super Serum Advance + ($140) not only provides anti-aging properties by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, but also significantly increases collagen (via Vitamin C), lightens pigmentation and reduces scar tissue. I used a sample vial of this for about a week and was able to see a difference in the overall look and texture of my skin. Full size please!
