What I thought :

I purchased the kit for $61.50. A little pricey for an Olay product , but alot of creams sell for alot more. Olay is also offering a $25 rebate when you purchase $50 worth of product by March 8, 2009. You can download the rebate at Olay.com. The kit also included a $10 coupon off a future product purchase of $40 or more.

This is a stronger product and may take some time getting used to, especially if you have sensitive skin. I have only been using this for two weeks now & am seeing a BIG difference in my skin. It has reduced my forehead lines & the fine lines under my eyes. It has also reduced my undereye puffiness.

This product also has very strong exfoliation properties so for the first week or so you will see alot of sloughing. I also experienced alot of purging. My skin hasn’t acted like this since I was in my twenties.

Conclusion: Olay Pro-X is most definitely not a product you would expect to pick up off of a drugstore shelf. Based on results I have gotten compared to some of the more pricier creams, I would call this one a winner !

Cargo ‘Mendocino’ Blush !

My New Favorite !

I know I will be using this for as long as it remains available. I recently purchased this at a local Sephora. This is a beautiful rose pink with a hint of peach and just the right amount of gold flecks that add warmth to a cool shade. This shade Reminds me of a beautiful sunset !

Cargo was originally developed as TV makeup, so it is highly saturated and lasts all day. This can be dusted on lightly or applied more heavily for a more intense look. It’s up to you… I am quickly discovering that this is one of Cargo’s most popular items !

Blush Tips : Don’t over do it ! With the more pigmented products that are available now, it doesn’t take much to end up looking like Happy The Clown. Start slow and build up. The brush you use really does makes all the difference . A denser synthetic brush with shorter hairs will pick up more product and laydown more color. For a lighter look, use a natural haired brush with longer hairs.

Also, don’t be afraid to blend more than one color. Instead of covering the entire cheek with one shade, I often use just a highlighter or a very light color all over my cheek first & then use a smaller brush to add a precisely placed ‘pop’ of color. Blend of course !



The latest craze in lip enhancement are silicone implants that can be fitted in less than 1 hour. Although not totally without risk, the latest PermaLip implants are a procedure that could put an end to less permanent and painful injections.

The implants are soft and maleable and designed to offer a permanent solution to constant follow up injections . The patented permalip is made of a soft elastomer which mimics the natural lip contours. The implant is solid, so it cannnot rupture, deflate or leak . PermaLip is also completely reversible. Removal of the implants is usually done in less than 10 minutes.

The procedure is easily performed and usually done within 15 minutes. Using local anesthetics, two small incisions are made in the corners of the mouth. The implant is passed through a tunnel in the mouth and centered. The process is repeated on the other lip and then the incisions closed with stitches. Normal activity may be resumed the following day.

Cost ? in the $2000-$2500 range. Plastic surgeons are anticipating a huge demand.
