No parade for you jackass!

 You think of all of the homeless veterans in the U.S., and this draft dodging jackass wants a parade?? Give me an effing break!

 

I awakened in a dark mood this morning, made even darker when I came downstairs, fired up the baby Dell, and sat down with my first cup of coffee of the day, only two read two news stories about the continuing saga of idiocy that defines the Oval Office these days … Pomp and Circumstance […]

I miss you Mr. Obama

Best president in my lifetime!

“I will never forget that the only reason I’m standing here today is because somebody, somewhere stood up when it was risky. Stood up when it was hard. Stood up when it wasn’t popular. And because that somebody stood, a few more stood up. And then a few thousand stood up. And then a few […]

Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream Review

This is an oldie but goody.  I bought this at Target for less than $14 USD for 16 ounces. Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream .  I recently read an article about this favorite for dry sensitive cream on Allure.com.

I use to use this cream years ago, right after my son was born.  Back then you had to ask for it at the pharmacy.  Given that the tub is 16 ounces, it will last you forever.

My skin gets super dry in the winter, and this thick cream works great. It’s free of dyes, fragrance, lanolin, parabens and formaldehyde.

I had some dry patches on my face that I had  used a great peel off mask I reviewed last week.  While this cream is great for really dry skin, it doesn’t have any anti aging benefits.

I recommend this cream to anyone with really dry skin.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Renewing Cucumber Peel-Off Gel Mask

Freeman peel off masks have been around since 1976.  I have used them off and on for years.  For me there is something very satisfying about a peel off mask, since you can see what is being pulled out of your skin.

I recently tried Hey Honey Take It Off exfoliating honey peel off mask.  I had received a deluxe sample in an Ipsy or Sephora Play box.  I really liked it and went to their website to place an order. Holy cow!  It was $32 for 1.7 ounces. Um, heck no!

I looked for a dupe and came across Freeman Renewing Cucumber Peel-Off Gel Mask for $4.29 for 6 ounces at Ulta.

Here is the description from Ulta.com:

A super-cooling, skin-quenching mask that gently peels away impurities that can cause skin to be rough and dull. Contains Cucumber Extract and Aloe to soothe while moisturizing, ensuring skin feels soft and silky-smooth after every use. Perfect for normal to combination skin.

Key Ingredients:

  • Cucumber Extract
  • Aloe Vera
  • Vitamin A

My skin is usually normal, but lately I’ve been having some dry patches.  No matter how much I was moisturizing, they just wouldn’t go away.  I’ve been using this Freeman mask  three times a week for the past two weeks, and my dry patches are gone.  I do feel it is just as effective as the Hey Honey mask. And at less than $.72 cents an ounce,  as opposed to $18 an ounce, it’s a way better deal.

Great post about gun violence in the U.S.

Another day, another mass shooting. WTF is wrong with people????

Another school shooting at Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky, killed 2 fifteen year-olds and wounded eighteen more. The shooter, whose identity is not being released, was apprehended shortly after the gunfire. The melee occurred around 8 A.M. at the start of the school day as students were congregating in a common area before […]
