The sun: blessing and a curse

b2ap3_thumbnail_sun-care.jpg Many age related skincare issues like dark spots and wrinkles are the thanks to sun exposure. However, the sun is very important to stave off SAD syndrome and in the production of Vitamin D so completely staying out of the sun is not an option for me. From a young age...

How to make choice among best facial moisturizers ?

How to make choice among best facial moisturizers ?

Garnier Experiment: Day 6

Garnier Experiment: Day 6

Garnier Experiment: Day 5

Garnier Experiment: Day 5
For this post I have researched into this 'skin illuminating' business. How does this cream claim to make your skin brighter? My test subject's face is looking pretty bright. I have stroked it several times and there is no build-up or residue that suggests a tint or glittery particles. So what...

Garnier Experiment: Day 4

Garnier Experiment: Day 4
I apologise for being inattentive toward this blog, I shall now make up for it by clogging the newsfeed with my insights.   Thursday was Day 4 and Ruth's skin was still feeling as smooth as satin (or silk, but not rough silk). I'm quite impressed. Also, her skin is indeed...

Day 11

This morning I went to war against dry skin.  If it could be moistured, it was moisturised - sometimes more than once.  There is a definite improvement in skin texture by this afternoon and my skin's texture is back to what I am used to.  The bergwind at the start of...

Day 9

It is colder still today and it is obvious that my skin needs more moisture when it's cold than the product offers.  This is a novel experience as I usually struggle with oily skin.  On the other hand, I have been suffering from a cold and, no matter how much water...

Day 8

So today is the start of week two.  The weather has turned cold and I can see and feel the effects of the sudden cold on my skin.   My skin's texture feels more rough than usual - so much so that I can even see the difference in the mirror....

Day 7

It has been a rather odd week weather wise.  We had a very dry bergwind until earlier today and now it's becoming cold.  I notice that my skin is starting to feel somewhat dry.   I have not really had a look at my skin since the treatment started as our...

Garnier Experiment: Day 3

Garnier Experiment: Day 3
I studied Ruth's face this morning and there appears to be no difference to the look of the thing, but she did declare that her face feels smoother. I reached out with my paw and stroked her cheeks a few times and I must concur, they do feel very smooth! She...

Garnier Experiment: Day 2

Garnier Experiment: Day 2
Yesterday was Day 2 for my experiment on Ruth's face.   I will describe her experience so far: Apparently the moisturiser is very light and feels almost more like a gel than a cream. It seems to spread smoothly and absorb quickly but a little goes a long way and one...

Beauty in your 30's

Beauty in your 30's
  As a woman in my 30’s I am blessed to very often be told that I “don’t look it” ;)   Now I have to confess that I mostly have my parents to thank for this, by them passing me down some good genes! But there are some things that...
