As Seen on TV
Well, I didn't have a very good Valentine's Day.
I came down with a terrible cold and spent my day off in bed so I didn't get to do anything
and didn't do any of my special Valentine's activities that I'd planned to do.
I think I caught my cold from Violet who went to the Vet on Monday for a runny nose.
Anyway, I always try to embrace Valentine's Day whether I have a significant other or not,
which is usually NOT.
I think it's a day to let those you love know how much you appreciate and love them.
But none of that for me yesterday.
Now...I want to talk beauty today. This is not a subject I've talked about before here.
Last July, I turned 50....ugh...yes....the big 5 0.
I always thought that when you got older....Yes, you got wrinkles but no more break outs.....right?
No...when you get old...you have wrinkles AND breakouts!
I've been struggling with this for quite awhile.
My skin was perfect in my 30's but all through my 40's it started acting like a teenagers.
Through the help of my dermatologist...my skin stayed clear pretty much.
But when I asked him what I could do...he said it was all hormonal and nothing I could do about it.
So one night last month...I'm watching late night tv and an infomercial comes on.
Miss Joan Lunden was touting the magnificent results her aging skin had gained by
using Murad Skincare products.
Ok, first let me tell you that I am not associated in any way with Murad.
I was not contacted to write this post.
I am writing this post...because this is an amazing product.
At least for me and I wanted to share it with you.
I am receiving no monetary reward for telling you about this.
It's just a great product.
Joan Lunden and her friends were going on and on about how much better their skin was since using.
And I had to admit...she and they looked pretty young and fabulous.
So after watching the program, I got on their website and ordered the introductory kit.
The cost was $39.95....and I thought I'd just take a risk.
They promised I could return if I didn't like.
But I LOVED it!
My skin gets terribly dry in the winter...so much so that I have to slather vaseline
around my eyes at night while sleeping to keep the skin from peeling.
I got this beauty tip from Tyra Banks.
It worked...but I thought...it could not be good to have a petroleum product all around my eyes each night.
So I got my introductory kit in and started using immediately.
They promised results in 30 days.
30 days? Try three days.
My skin was the softest its been in years.
No more pesky breakouts.
Their age defying night cream....solved all my problems with dry skin.
My skin is more even in tone than it's been in 10 years.
I also had one wrinkle that was forming under my right eye.
It was gone in two days and has not come back.
I wake with my eyes looking fresh instead of tired and puffy.
I know this sounds to good to believe but really this is what I've experienced.
Here is the only bad part about the introductory kit,
it comes with Sheer Lustre Day Moisture and Renewing Eye Cream.
I adored both products! But such small bottles.
I was out by the end of the first month and to reorder those...it's like $50 per item.
The Day Moisture just makes your skin glow.
The eye cream is the first eye cream I've ever used that actually did what was promised.
The skin under my eyes was visibly firmer each time I used it.
But here is the sad part of the story.
I can't afford $100 every month extra although the large sizes probably last much longer than a month.
(I'm sure they do)
So I hope to be able to order them some time soon.
I've tried other eye creams and they always make the skin around my eyes sting.
This one did not.
I tried one the other day I bought for $13...it made my eyes all puffy and made my eyes water.
I also tried Preparation H.
I was told that it works wonders.
Nope...it smells horrid and did nothing for my eyes. Besides I just couldn't forget what was on my face.
And it made my skin all greasy.
Anyway...I wasted over $20 on stuff that does not work.
Another $30 and I could have gotten the miracle cure from Murad.
I did look these products up online before I ordered and read many great reviews.
Anyway.... I just wanted to pass my find on to you and also to ask if there is an eye cream
that you love that is cheaper than $50.
You can order the introductory kit by clicking above.
Too bad I don't get paid for my recommendation.
This stuff is just super fabulous!
Maybe an ad will show up on my sidebar through the magic of Google.
I'll be anxious to hear how it works for you if you order.
