I will fully admit, I don't spend a lot of time on my face - I rarely wear full makeup. I would say I moisturize 80% of the time and I am 100% guilty of going to bed most nights without washing my face. Yet, people tell me that I have nice skin and I don't look my age. But really, what does that mean?? In this age of Instagram filters and Hollywood glam, how do we really know what a certain ages looks like?
Enter that damn website "How Old Am I" I thought it would be a hoot and was eager to see how young the website thought I was - I mean everyone says I don't look my age - why would a machine be any different. Well the bastard website kept aging me between 52 and 44. What. The. Hell. I tried it several times in different lights - with and without makeup. Old photos, new photos. And while taking all these photos I noticed my skin didn't seem to have that youthful glow that I always thought I had and this weird line has appeared on my forehead. I, as any good woman, let it stew inside of me for several weeks.
Fast forward to Memorial Day weekend, when in the early hours of the morning, as I am enjoying my coffee, the ad for Cindy Crawford and her miracle french melon moisturizer appears on my television. Every once in a while, I am sucked into the world of the infomercial and this day was one of them.
Friday, this arrived....fancy french melon moisturizer and a sonic skin brush.
So today I opened it up, read all the instructions and then, well then, I washed my face. I had read reviews (AFTER I purchased it of course) that some people complained of burning skin and other bad reactions etc. But almost 24 hours into it and so far, so good. I even used the sonic cleansing brush that left me feeling very soft and smooth - velvety you might say. So soft, that when meeting with friends this afternoon, I kept asking to touch everyone's face and then have them touch mine to confirm it was softer than the normal skin. Not creepy at all. Nope.
Here are my Day 0 photos before I did anything with the box o' products - I will post more again at Day 15 and Day 30. Let's see if this french melon is really amazing.
Still cute no mater what that damn age thing says.
