I was getting ready one morning when it dawned I me just how many beauty products I use while getting ready each day. So I decided to count them. Hair products, skin care, makeup and perfume. I never quantified the sheer number of items I used each day. Now I know why the ladies at the beauty counter see me coming from a mile away.
I used a grand total of 19 products in all.
Here is my list:

- body wash
- face wash
- shaving cream
- skin toner
- face moisturizer
- eye cream
- shimmer cream
- eye shadow
- eye pencil
- lip gloss
- hair spray
So go ahead …experiment and let me know how many you use.
One day I got a quick glance in the mirror and did a double take. I asked myself “Who the heck is looking back at me?! Really? The person I know and love is young, perky, wrinkle free and raring to go.
We all have good and bad days but at what point did I age from that lovely 22 year old? Well the mirror answered that questions real fast!
It’s kind of like a person that passes away (ok maybe not that bad) but you want to remember them as they were…before!
So while I have come to terms with what I will call my “less young” self, I try to embrace the reflection I have now. Do I sound convincing enough?
