I made another order for the free Everyday Minerals sample and bingo, this time, I got my shades right.  Those who use mineral foundation know that it can be quite a pain to find a shade that suits your skin tone and it’s usually a process of trial and error. 

Depending on where you get your foundation from, the trick is to pick a shade or two darker than your skin tone.  I had to pick Golden Medium, which is two shades darker than my skin tone under the Olive undertone.  It’s not an exact match, but I’m happy with the results.

I was looking at Dermalogica Power Rich  A key to maximize a tube of creamand was intrigued!  Not so much about the powerful restructuring properties, but rather the packaging.  The product is packaged in a 35+day supply of sealed metal tubes, accompanied by a metal key used to roll the tube for maximum product extraction.  Like sardine cans I think, and oooh, I like that!  Definitely beats trying to squeeze the last bit out of a tube of cream with all my might.

A while ago, my friend Ashes of Krystallinos asked me to recommend something for her neck.  She admitted that she didn’t pay too much attention to that part of her body and she  was getting paranoid that age might be showing through her neck creases.   Yes, the annoying turkey neck syndrome!
