What’s in your makeup bag?

I was never a makeup hound (is there such a thing?)  I was introduced to makeup when I was in my early 20s.  A friend of mine asked why I didnt wear any.  Maybe because of my background – strict mom and dad – afraid their baby girl would get in with the wrong crowd.  But of course, hitting 21 makes a difference.  Little mom and dad could do.  So when asked – became aware of makeup and with the help of this friend, out came the black eyeliner, foundation, blush, mascara and of course lipstick.

Back in those days it was the era of hair teasing and lots of hairspray.  I thought I looked cool – except all the makeup day in an day out started drying up my skin and you know, it was a pain taking it off every night, only to apply again in the morning.  And – it took a lot of time!

So eventually I started using less and less makeup (everyone said I had a beautiful face anyway) and I limited myself to how much I used.  The foundation was stopped all together and in its place I used creams and cleansing lotions to keep my face clear and moisturized.  And until this very day I use a bit of eyeliner on my lower lids, some mascara just to give a full look and maybe some blush depending on what I am doing that day.  Of course, if leaving the house there is always some lipstick and every two weeks I get my nails done…..so basically my makeup bag holds very little – because little is all I need.  In fact my makeup bag looks very much like the picture below….I can probably carry the A Box around with me to cover my makeup needs….maybe I will.

Ultra Hydration is Here

Avon has introduced something new.  Well, Moisture Therapy is not really new but there are several different types of MT.  We already have CALMING RELIEF Moisture Therapy which has oatmeal that soothes and relieves dry, itchy skin.  Then there is DAILY SKIN DEFENSE which is formulated with vitamins, and last there is INTENSIVE HEALING AND REPAIR (my favorite) that gives 72-hour moisturization that relieves redness due to dry skin.


And now there is ULTRA HYDRATION with these


  • Natural vitamins and fatty acids make shea butter an incredibly moisturizing ingredient.
  • Moisture hydrates skin and lasts for 24 hours.
  • Shea contains cinnamic acid and other natural properties that soothe the skin.
  • Dermatologist-tested and hypo-allergenic.

There are actually three products in the Ultra Hydration line: body scrub to exfoliate dead skin cells, body lotion for moisturizing, and ointment for an even richer moisturization in extra dry spots.  And get it at a great price – only $6.99 for a 16 oz bottle….check out the brochure info here 



Body Oil

It’s here..the rain, snow and cold weather.  And with it comes dry skin.  No matter how much lotion you slab on there never is any smooth skin.  The weather just runs havoc on us.  But now all your skin needs is oil because oil doesnt wash off as easy as lotion.  So why dont you try some Skin So Soft….I happen to love the spray bottle…There is a fresh herbal scent and it locks in the moisture after a bath or shower so it leaves your skin feeling soft and nourished.
