A few weeks ago I made the decision to spend a bit more cash on my looks. By that I mean I dropped some dollars at Nordstrom for two Philosophy products for my face and let go of the $8.99 Oil of Olay moisturizer. Not that I’m not thankful for how it has held my face together thus far; it just does not have the same feeling that it used to when I apply it to my face.
Philosophy Miracle Worker, let’s see if you live up to your name.
I originally chose the product for its low price and the fact that it contained sunscreen. Low price and sunblock can no longer be the only things I am looking for. This month I turn 43 and I think I need to spend a little more to keep the “black don’t crack” myth alive and well. I know they say that you are only as old as you feel; but I want my feelings to match my face. Is that so wrong?
Another factor was the ingredients. You know I cannot pronounce half of the ones I see on any makeup these days but with a visit to the Skin Deep website I could tell exactly how bad those big words were for my body. The cream I had been using scored a 6 (the scale being from 0-10 with 10 being the most toxic.
Is more toxic more effective?
Am I being superficial and catty to care about such things as fine lines on my forehead?
Let’s see what happens as I try to keep my current face in its current place.
