L’Oreal Youth Code Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Serum Corrector L’Oreal Youth Code Dark Spot SPF 30 Day Cream

LOreal Youth Code Dark Spot Correcting Illuminating Serum Corrector LOreal Youth Code Dark Spot SPF 30 Day Cream 3

I suspected we’d see a return of the dark spot serums, lotions, and potions. I also suspected it would be for Spring since this is the time of the year that new skincare products makes an appearance because hey, it’s a great marketing launch when most folks are having a beauty resolution that includes “new year, new skincare”.

L’Oreal’s popular Youth Code Collection gets an update with two new products for correcting dark spots and hyper pigmentation.

Take a look!


Philosophy The Microdelivery Triple-Acid Brightening Peel

Philosophy The Microdelivery Triple Acid Brightening Peel

I’m pretty convinced that the Philosophy Miracle Worker Collection is truly a miracle. Those Miracle Worker pads are amazing, the dark spot corrector is incredible, and the moisturizer is so incredibly hydrating!

All of these treats and more have become staple products for my aging skin. I found it difficult settling on an anti-aging skin regime when I started to realize it was time for me to use them but now I’ve found the perfect combination of products, thank you Philosophy!

Needless to say I’m VERY excited to check out the new Philosophy The Microdelivery Triple-Acid Brightening Peel. I’ve been using Kate Somerville peel but not sure where I stand with it as of yet as I’m just into my third week with it….needless to say I must get my hands on Philosophy’s version because if it proves as fantastic as the Miracle Worker pads we are in for a true treat indeed.

Have a look!


Their Taking the Hobbits to Isengard for SKI-II Skin Signature Eye Cream, See Ya There!

Like any good Tolkien geek I’ve read and reread almost everything the man has written at least twice. Once in my youth and again in my early adulthood.

And of course, like any good fan I’ve watched and rewatched “Their Taking the Hobbits to Isengard” more times than I’m comfortable admitting. Seriously, I can’t get enough of that witty jingle and of course, the dim witted look on Aragorn’s face. Put that puppy on loop and watch, rewatch, and sing along all damn day to it like the compulsive freaky geek you are! As far as I’m concerned this video is one of Orlando Bloom’s best film moment, I’m talking Oscar worthy!

Today, we celebrate the joy of the return of Tolkien in film as the Hobbit trailer released. We have to wait until next year to actually see the movie but at least we can get all hot and bothered over the trailer.

P.S. I so know Galadriel is using SK-II Skin Signature Eye Cream.

SKI II Skin Signature Eye Cream

I’m shoppin’ new eye creams and I’m wanting indulge in this lightweight eye cream that promises to firm up skin as well as moisturize the delicate skin around your eyes.

Actually, the entire SK-II Collection has been calling to me for the past year….perhaps a beauty resolution for new skincare is in my future.

What are your latest skincare lemmings?

I admit it, I’ve disembarked from the crazy train and I’m no longer Gaga’s fan girl.


Please don’t hate me.

She’s just become a little too much for me.

But I do so want to shop the good shop at her Barney’s Gaga Workshop particularly when goodies like Lipstick Queen Monster Red is calling my name!
