EauMG’s 2014 August Empties

August Empties

Another month, more Empties.

In August, I actually expected to empty a lot of skincare but it looks like I have a few more weeks left in many of my bottles. My prediction is that in September I’m going to run out of most of my skincare.

It’s September. My summer no-buy is over. But, I have to confess that I did slip up in August. Hey, I’m human. I bought a


Saving Face – Review of Facial Sunscreen

Facial Sunscreens

Now that I’m using AHAs during my night time routine, I’m crazy about daily SPF. This isn’t really new for me. I’ve been crazy about SPF for 15 years. I now realize that I have no choice and can’t live without them. I’ve tried so many and really, I don’t love too many of them. Maybe my expectations are too high?

It opens with notes that really help this live up to its invigorating name. It shocks my senses with a burst of lemon zest. It smells like herbs – thyme, rosemary and lemon balm.

Just Say Eau: Clarins Contour Anti-Eau Treatment Oil Review

Clarins Anti_Eau

I am a sucker for body treatment products. I fall for anything that claims to tighten, firm, or perform miracles to the skin. Here’s the deal. I know that they don’t *actually* work. I just love how they feel. Many cellulite creams and firming gels do have a very temporary effect. Nothing really helps with this stuff except for maybe diet and exercise. There’s a lot of genetic involved. But, this doesn’t stop me from buying these products…I like their feel.

And who does these sort of products… Continue reading | 2 Comments
