Half the fun of attending Nordstrom’s Trend Show each year is having my shopping diva and good friend, Karen with me! We have been friends for over 30 years and have shared some memory making times together. Some of those memories include trend shows, makeup, shopping and lunch. Others… well you know what they say… “what happens with us – stays with us” and I will leave it at that. Big smile.
Over the last few week’s I have begun to tell you about several of my favorite new products here at Wrinkle Me Not and I asked Karen to do the same. So yesterday she surprised me with two reviews of her favorites – so I want to share them with you!
Hi, I am Karen. I would like to tell you about Dr. Dennis Gross Instant Radiance Sun Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 with Sheer Color Correction Technology. The DDG skin specialist told me I should not leave the show without trying it! She applied the medium tint and I immediately loved the moisturizing glow with a hint of shimmer on my skin! I have been wearing this daily for almost a month and have recently applied it before heading to the pool. With an SPF of 40, it kept me from sunburn while adding the shimmering Glo to my face, neck, and décolleté. I rarely go outside without makeup (even just to get the mail), and in the past, I have always worn a sunscreen plus a foundation and blush to the pool, which left me feeling a little silly with all of that makeup. Not anymore! The Dr. DG Instant Radiance Sun Defense allows me to be SPF protected AND it covers imperfections and blends uneven skin tone. I am confident wearing only the Dr. DDG Instant Radiance Sun Defense anywhere I go! You need to try it, Judy. Be sure and get the right shade for your skin coloring because you want to look a wee bit darker than you are. I have a feeling I will be using this year around because it blocks those UVs and gives my skin a healthy looking Glo!
Another product I found in my goodie bag from Nordstrom Trend Show is Lancome La Base Pro Pour Eraser. I have enjoyed many Lancome products for years so when I found two generous samples, I was delighted! I immediately noticed the soft texture and it feels like silk on my skin! It actually does minimize and erase pores but also I noticed a huge improvement in my oily T-zone. Normally I powder my nose several times a day but with the Lancome La Base Pro Pour Eraser, I was surprised to find it covered and kept my skin looking and feeling fresh throughout the day and evening! I actually like it better than Dior’s Dream Skin!
So there you go! My two favorite finds from Trend Show but I have so many samples yet to try, I’m sure I will find more treasures and keepers!
Several years ago while traveling in Paris with a group of co-workers and friends, my husband and I were able to attend my first product launch. Believe me there is nothing like a Paris product launch! Couple it with the backdrop of the Champs Elysees, one of the most celebrated shopping districts in the world, and filled with lots of glitz and glamour. Only in Paris.
Prior to leaving for this trip, a Lancome beauty rep at Macy’s told me of an upcoming product – Absolue – that was going to ‘rock’ the beauty world with all it would offer women and indeed it has. I couldn’t buy the product in France to take back to the states so I had to ‘wait’ on it to follow me back to Texas. And I did. I was probably one of the first to buy it in Dallas as I kept tabs on it’s arrival – which was almost 5 weeks later.
It was only recently I was reminded of my first ‘fling’ with Absolue as I visited with my youngest daughter. I had given her a makeup bag filled with samples for her birthday. A few days later, she mentioned that she had fallen in love with a product and asked me if I had heard of it. Lancome Absolue. I smiled at the memories it evoked.
To this day one of my favorite Lancome products is my Absolue Hand Premium BX Cream. This is not your normal hand cream. This is an ultra-luxurious hand cream that lessens the look of age spots and contains a replenishing moisture with SPF 15 protection. This cream is rich with soy and sea algae which helps reinforce elasticity and firmness. Instantly (and I do mean it when I say ‘instantly’) your hands feel softer, more supple and relieved of uncomfortable dryness with a more even-toned, luminous look of youth.
Over time it will reduce the appearance of existing age spots, leaving your skin looking clearer and more even-toned and hydrates instantly. From the moment it is applied, the dryness disappears. Be advised… once you begin to use it no other hand cream will ever feel the same.
I’ve got nothing to do today, but smile. – Fresh Quotes
Well, my Dallas Cowboys are NOT going to the Super Bowl this year so that just adds to the holiday let down of January. I will get over it as I do every year, but somehow I just KNEW we were going to make it this year. And! I guess many others thought we were going as well, because ABC reported this morning that the ticket prices for the Super Bowl in February have dropped 20% overnight since the Dallas Cowboys won’t be in the game! So it’s now we move forward… It is time to concentrate on this New Year and make it the best one for all of us.
I have talked to several of you that have received the 7-day Rénergie Lift Multi Action Moisturizer challenge from Lancome. What a great product and marketing tool they have for all of us this year. They ad reads, “Harness the power of three: lift, firm and tighten. Lancôme’s secret weapon against sagging skin, Rénergie Lift Multi Action Moisturizer SPF 15 is formulated with Multi-Tension Technology to lift, firm, and tighten all facial zones while revitalizing the appearance of skin. Skin is left feeling deeply hydrated and looking denser, smoother, and more beautiful.” Attached to this card are seven packages of this amazing cream.
So ok, I tried the 7 day sample of the Renergie Lift Multi-Action Cream that I had received at my favorite department store, Nordstrom. Upon opening the package I notice it has a pleasant fragrance, not oily whatsoever, and really nice texture. It didn’t take the seven days for me. I noticed a difference after 3 days of use in which my skin was a bit more smoother and more even toned afterwards. I even noticed a difference on my décolleté area, which I really like. Gotta start thinking v-necks and summer even though it is winter!
So! Visit a Lancome counter at your favorite department store and see if they have a 7-day challenge card available for you. The price points for this daily moisturizer cream are very good even if you can’t get a challenge card.
Still can’t believe the Dallas Cowboys lost…..
Happy New Year! Always welcome the new morning with a new spirit, a smile on your face, love in your heart and good thoughts in your mind. -Site2Quote
