My Work Horse

I love this stuff. I've been using it almost every day for years. I find when I don't use it, my skin suffers and becomes more prone to breakouts. Now that I am older, and living in a dryer clime, I have to be more diligent with moisturizer afterward. But otherwise, this stuff is great. Try it if you have combo or oily skin.

A note about my skin colouring and skin type

I am Caucasian with fair skin that is combination on my face and seemingly sensitive and prone to dryness, everywhere else. I've been this way all my life. It took me a while to feel comfortable in this skin, but after many years I've learned how to take care of it properly.
Of course, if I don't eat right, that all goes to hell. I'm starting to explore the possibility of food allergies and skin reactions a little more, but I'm not a die-hard.
I know that if I eat chocolate with a very specific ingredient, that is not in every kind, I really break out. It's almost fascinating.
However - this isn't as fun as TALKING ABOUT PRODUCT.

My favourites

I love makeup. I've always considered it to be my 5 minutes of creative play in the morning. I find all the colours available, very fun. Maybe I should have been a painter. But I'm not, so I buy cosmetic colours instead.

I intend to review my favourites and not so favourites here. They won't necessarily be the latest and greatest products, but old standbys always have a place in the makeup bag.

And I won't be talking about just makeup. I'm totally into the creams and potions thing too. So, stay tuned. I'll be checking in as I try new stuff, and post about some old stuff.
