  43 years young on a transitioning journey into green skincare/cosmetics and sharing detailed reviews. beautyjunkie2012@gmail.com

My skin is looking so plump with hydration and soft I felt the need to skip makeup. Just a little @strokeofbeautycosmetics Skin Finish Concealer under my eyes @bobbibrown All Over Bronzing Gel on the cheekbones and @maccosmetics Lipstick in "O" which by the way is a beautiful duo chrome lippie. Depending on how the light hits it one minute it could be a metallic chocolate brown and the next a plummy brown.

First impressions of @sahajanskincare of Protective Face Serum & Nourish Face Cream...smells quite earthy. Not in a bad way whatsoever but definitely an adjustment for nose to become accustomed to.
The serum consistency is that of melted ice cream. Not too thick but not too thin either. 3 drops in palm and applied to moist skin I noticed it sinks right into skin without much effort. My skin appears hydrated immediately. A lil glowy but not greasy in the slightest.
The Nourish Face Cream applied a few minutes after the serum and WOW does a lil bit go a long way. This is not one to go heavy handed on. It's highly concentrated and I found out the hard way when I applied too much and looked like a greasy mess. I took tissue paper to my face to take up the excess.

AM: I was happy to see that the little patch of acne that decided to set up shop on my forehead along the hairline had actually reduced in size....looking dry and thirsty. My forehead fine line....what line? I don't even see it.
So far so good enjoying the results of this duo. As I mentioned in an earlier post I will give my full opinion of this after 30 days of use. Which will share far more details than posted here.

I'm 43 years young and asked all the time how I maintain my youthful appearance. Its simple. I don't harbor hate in my heart. It doesn't cost a dime and the best anti-aging skincare item to have in your arsenal.

Up next for review is @sahajanskincare spotlighting the Nourish Face Cream and Protective Face Serum. Long before I received these two gratis for review I was deeply interested in the line for its blend of Ayurvedic remedies and modern organic science. The star ingredient being Triphala, a triple-fruit antioxidant that includes Amalaki or Amal Indian Gooseberry with more than 20x's the Vitamin C as an Orange and Gotu Kola which is a anti-aging herb that contains compounds confirmed via recent scientific research as stimulators for the production of collagen in the skin.
What is most important to me is maintaining luminosity in skin, hydration and improvement in those pesky fines...especially the one that likes to say hello across my forehead.

As always when it comes to reviews it will take me a month of use to determine the results I see. But today is day one as I used the serum this morning before application of my SPF.
Looking forward to sharing my results.

I was wearing @hourglasscosmetics Ambient Lighting Powder in Luminous Light as a highlighter but grew a tad bored of it so I was thinking of sending it away to another home. Well, I applied all over the face Tuesday....for the first time ever. Wow!!!! I was impressed with the outcome. A nice lovely glow without looking powdery. It played well with my Bobbi Brown foundation stick and didn't cause me to break out either. Its safe to say this baby is staying with me.

I received @keliaskincare The Repair Serum gratis to review almost a month ago (July 14th is when I started using it) and so I must report on my results thus far.

As expected I made a few application errors along the way....applying to soaking wet skin, applying too much or too little, etc. It truly takes one full pump to cover face and neck. Two if you wish to cover the decolletage as well. My first week of use I definitely saw some visible changes as reported in an earlier post and my skin progressively has become happier and happier with each passing week.
I'm seeing a clarity in my skin that makes me not want to wear foundation sometimes. In the past I remember using multiple products to get the same results. And right now that is major to me as my post chemo skin just can't handle aggressive active ingredient products at this time.
This serum has addressed areas of slight aging such as my forehead with that pesky fine line with the star ingredient Kigelia Africana and its sidekicks Vitamin C, numerous botanicals and hyaluronic acid.
I'm absolutely over the moon smitten with this serum!!! It fits my requirements in regards to clean beauty plus its vegan and cruelty-free. The packaging is gorgeous as its a glass bottle with a gold top. I love showing it off on my bathroom counter but only for a few minutes as its ideal to house this gem in a cool dark area...not in a hot steamy room.
I received zero monetary compensation to review this gem so my opinion of this line is honest and forthright. I love this independent line and its mission statement. I could go on and on screaming the beautiful attributes of this line but IG only allows so much space in this section so I'm limited. If you're a skincare junkie like myself giving this line a try is so worth it. Happy skin, happy life.

#TBT. My 8 year old son is begging me to grow my long mane back and I'm so torn because I want to make him happy but at the same time keep me content as well. These are pics that he chosen as his ultimate faves of me when I had hair. A mommy's dilemma. 😕😕

This will be the last time I purchase a @tomford lippie. Just like my beloved Coco Ravish this lovely beauty in Sable Smoke went rancid. It wasn't that long ago that I last wore it. Swiped it on in a quick rush today and regretted it. Horrible scent/taste and it didn't take long for my lips to become irritated.
I'm so sad.

A lovely little surprise in the mail from @sahajanskincare. Been eyeing this line for awhile so I'm happy to receive the Nourish Face Cream and Protective Face Serum. I'm intrigued by Ayurvedic remedies blended with modern organic science.

A late posting on AM skincare. I'm really enjoying @keliaskincare The Repair Serum. It pairs up quite nicely with @lxmiofficial Pore-Refining Moisture. Two independent lines that are about providing opportunity in Africa. And both ran by two gorgeous women. @beautycounter Rose Water Spray is heaven after cleansing and toning. @jomalonelondon Lip Conditioner is my most recent addition in the lip balm family. I applied this before adding lip color to add further hydration.
