I have had my subscription to Ipsy.com for two years now. For $10 a month I get five cosmetic items, plus a cosmetic bag. I usually get several full size items, along with deluxe samples. I get skin care, nail polish, hair care, etc. As you can imagine, after two years, I have a lot of stuff. A lot of cool stuff that I usually put in a drawer and forget about. I have a stash of unwanted stuff that I have been sending to my niece over the years. For the most part, I love everything I get. It is fun trying brands I have never heard off. I got some blue brown eye shadow that simply looks amazing with my blue eyes.
I’ve been in menopause for five years now, and let me tell you it sucks! Most of the unpleasantness I’ve been able to handle. My skin is one of my best assets, so when I got a funky rash on my face recently I was flipping out. I mean really, it is a good thing I don’t smoke, as my hair is a fire hazard these days. I can deal with most things not looking so great, but when the hair and skin go, I’m basically screwed. I’m a middle aged woman, and I know I’ll never look like I did when I was in my 20’s; and I’m fine with that. But I do want to look good for my age. So I’m trying everything I can find for this stupid rash, and nothing was working. We had a party to go to this past weekend, and I was hoping it would clear up. You can only cover up so much with make-up.
I was rummaging around in my junk drawer in the bathroom trying anything that could help with this rash. I came across some Josie Maran Pure Argan oil I had gotten in one of my Ipsy.com bags. I thought, what the heck, let’s give this a try. I had never used oil on my face before, but given the dry patches I had everywhere, I had nothing to lose. OMG! This is the best face product I have encountered in my 50 plus years on the planet! It’s that good. I have used super expensive face creams to drug store brands, but never had such immediate results. Within several days of using the Josie Maran Pure Argan oil at night, my rash was gone. Plus my skin looks amazing. I just ordered some Josie Maran sunscreen .5 ounces with a 47 SPF on eBay for $9.50. The price of Josie’s products are very reasonable, with travel sizes available. On Josiemarancosmetics.com, the same SPF was $14, and I paid $9.50 with free shipping on eBay.com. I was comparison shopping between Josie’s website and eBay. One thing you will want to note on eBay is you have to look closely at the size. Some eBay sellers have the wrong size listed. It is a good idea to look at the photo on eBay to see the actual size. Also for sunscreens be sure to check the expiration date. If you don’t see one, don’t order it.
Here is a photo of me from the party I was at this past Saturday. Doesn’t my skin look great? Not too shabby for a soon to be 56 year old woman. Now, if I could only make my nose look smaller.
