{Confessions of a Product Junkie}... Skin Care Fall 2015 Edition

Well, my skin decided to go haywire recently, so I decided to try a new skin care regime.  I went to Rene Rouleau Spa and tried a whole line of products.  They have 9 different skin types identified and then a line of products tailored to your type.

I have still been using my basic Almay eye makeup remover pads, and CeraVe hydrating cleanser to remove makeup, but then I have been adding the following to my routine...

I wash my face morning and night with this Gentle Gel Cleanser.

I follow up with the Elderberry Toner both morning and night.

They talked me into buying these Toning Cloths for the application of the toner.  Supposedly, it absorbs less of the product than cotton balls do, and thus you go through your product slower than if you used the cotton balls.  I haven't really figured out if you save money or not, because obviously these cost more than cotton balls.  I need to put some pencil to paper here and figure it out.

I use two of their Serums.  You apply the serum after you apply toner at night.  I use the BHA Clarifying Serum for three days, and then switch to the Skin Correcting Serum for the next 3 nights, and then back to BHA, etc.

I also tried their Vitamin C Eye Brightener.  I do think that my dark circles have diminished since I started using this eye cream morning and night.

I've been using these products for several months.  I started with just the cleanser, toner and eye cream.  I didn't see the results I hoped, so I added the serums, and they were the game changer.  I can tell they are helping.  So far I've been pretty happy with these products so if you are like me, and having trouble with your skin, you might check out these products.  They seem to be the real deal.

October Wrap-up...

I had made a list at the beginning of October with all of the things I wanted to do in the month, and I just about succeeded in checking them all off the list...

Canton Trade Days... Check.  I was able to purchase a couple of Christmas gifts, so it was a success.

State Fair of Texas... Check.  Ate fried food until I thought I would pop!

Autumn at the Arboretum... Check.  It was a huge hit with the kids.

Spa Day... Check.  Was a great early birthday celebration for me.

Birthdays... Check.  I'm officially older than when I made the list and also celebrated several other birthdays in October too.

Take Lola's Halloween Pics... Done.

Scare on the Square... this was the only FAIL.  It rained and rained and rained on Friday.  And even if it let up a bit in the evening, Jennifer got the stomach bug, and I wasn't about to venture down to the square on my own with her kids.

The one thing I left off the list was Halloween.  Since my Godson and his siblings live several hours away, I had to send them some cookies for Halloween.  I think they were a big hit.  Here he is stealing cookies with the help of his younger brother and accomplice in crime...

I went over to take pics of Josh, Harper, and Sam.  They had a 101 Dalmatians theme going.  Sam was the Dalmatian, Harper was Cruella, and Josh was a British Bobby who was arresting Cruella.  I thought they were adorable!

A successful October!
