Here’s my contribution to the May edition of Hot Mamas Know — my very favorite products from my very favorite brand, my tried, my true, my Clinique. I’ve been using it in some form for the last 20 years, and without it I’d be lost. Seriously. Navigationally impaired. More so than usual.
The Bag Buster
I don’t go a single morning without All About Eyes. I think I retain a lot of water when I sleep or something, because I ALWAYS wake up with puffy bags. Believe it or not, it actually contains a decongestant, so it de-puffs crazy fast.
The Time Machine
Those attractive little vertical lines above my lip are hereditary. My mom’s advice is not to drink through a straw so much. My advice is Deep Wrinkle Concentrate. It doesn’t make the lines go away permanently, but it does an awesome job minimizing the “old-before-my-time” look. It works on the beautiful creases between my eyes too.
The Tall Cool Drink
I slather this on religiously morning and night. My skin is pretty much desert land. I can’t stand greasy, heavy anything on my face. The very thought of foundation makes me feel claustrophobic. Yech. Moisture Surge Extra is incredibly light. And you wouldn’t think it would work, but it does.
The Cheapest, Best All-Around
If all this seems a bit much, there’s still one thing you can’t beat. The washcloth. Not just any washcloth, mind you. Something REALLY cheap, bumpy and rough. Something decidedly NOT soft. Like a shop towel. This and a little Dove works exfoliating magic.
So there you have it. My daily deal. I’m kind of set in my ways.
Because diverging from the path ain’t pretty.
