Howdy and Happy New Year!
Yep, the sentiment is a bit late, but I still hope you all had and will have a happy one.
Now for the scoop.
Every once in a while I do a post that details some fabulous product I’ve come across. This time you get 2!
First is something my sister got me last year and again this year. It’s a face powder foundation that kicks ass!
I wore foundation and powder for the past 30 years and never thought I’d do anything else, but this shit rules!
When my sister gave it to me she said, “I’ve found the best foundation powder ever and I can finally get some for you. They just came out with their Corpse Line of Colors and they have one light enough for your white ass.”
Well, my white ass was also a dumb ass because I totally believed her! Ha! Little snot.
While there is no Corpse Line of Colors, I do have to get the very lightest one they sell. I’m a pale mo fo!
Two caveats to keep in mind with this stuff:
- You should wipe down your face with some water and a washcloth to get any sleepy crust off your mug (mine is usually trails of dried drool and eye boogers).
- Use a moisturizing cream under it, but LET IT DRY COMPLETELY or you’re fucked. This powder will turn into some kind of impossible to remove sludge if you have ANY dampness on your face. I use Estee Lauder Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Cream and while it reminds me of old ladies with fancy creams sitting on doilies on their antique dressing tables, the shit does work. And since I never wash my face, it has quite the job to do. Luckily, it does it well. But I wait about 10 minutes after applying the cream before I put on the powder.
I get compliments all the time on my skin and how smooth it looks. I give 75% of the credit to getting my mom’s genes and 25% credit to Lancome. None of the credit goes to me.
Next product (this one the guys can use too!):
Who out there has feet that you wouldn’t want to take a picture of and use as your profile pic?
Got the Crusty Heel Blues?
I get a pedicure every 4 weeks or so, but since I’m a barefoot mama and try to avoid shoes at all cost I still get feet that are a little rough around the edges. I can tell when I need a trip to the pedicure chair when at night, on my satin sheets, I can hear my feet scrape across the satin and pill the material. That is just fucked up. Ewwwwww!!!
Good news is that I discovered this kick ass, at-home foot belt sander that make my feet feel like the feet of an infant.
If I could and not be weird, I might kiss my own feet all the time like you kiss a baby’s cause they are soft as can be.
And the fun thing is you get to watch all the skin powder from your foot fly up in the air while you sand off the calluses. Yeah, I know, gross. But it’s totally fun too!
It’s the Emjoi Micro-pedi Battery Operated Callus Remover and I got it on Amazon for $30.
I use it for just a minute or two a night and I’m telling you, my feet are delicious now! Plus, I can get cheaper pedicures because I won’t need the callus remover treatment anymore, so this thing will pay for itself in less than 2 pedicures.
Pretty freakin’ awesome, if I do say so myself!
If you guys get them, let me know what you think. I love love love both of them and even sent my sister one of the footie things as a surprise present.
Anyway, those are my post-Christmas treats that I just had to share (along with a few pics below of our Christmas fun!).
Have a great weekend everyone!
