You Are So Beautiful

This is one of my favorite Twilight Zone episodes: well, I can't think of any that aren't "favorites" really. I thought about this because a company kindly sent me samples of their new skin care product for me to review. I'd eagerly sent a note asking to review the product; strangely, I almost sent the box back when it arrived. I did open it, hoping that the product is good because (a) I'll be using it morning and night for three weeks or so and (b) I really don't want to write a negative review. Having discovered that about myself, this is absolutely not, I think that I will be better to be highly selective about products sent to me for review.

The product, which will get a complete review soon, is wonderful actually. I've used it for the first week and love it which makes me ever so much more comfortable.

I'm not comfortable wearing a lot of makeup, cringe at foundation, what an odd word for something one will pat on their face. My skin care routine involves very basic and classic things: cetaphil to wash my face and moisturizers marked day and night. I wouldn't give up coffee for Latisse but it would be the thing I'd take to the proverbial desert island (along with a pareo, a straw boater with a huge black ribbon, a long sleeved Victorian white blouse and an All Saints black (of course) hoodie.

Facials are wonderful things and certainly have a place in a skin care regimen but nothing is more important that having a dermatologist that will look at the odd things skin can have and make them all right again. I did ask mine how he would define beauty; I was very surprised when he stepped back and said "beauty is being loved."
