I tried a couple of Botanic Organic's products yesterday.
In the morning, I used the Chamomile & Lavender Cleansing Spray & the
Raspberry & Green Tea Daily Defense Moisturizer
I have some results to share. First of all, I like them. They are light, easy to use, smell good and feel good on my face. I didn't apply too much makeup yesterday. Just a little sparkly gold eyeshadow, some mascara and magenta lip stick. I haven't tried any new makeup products yet. These were some of the things I still had lying around my makeup drawer. Oh I don't really have a makeup drawer. I have a drawer that my makeup is in - along with hair ties, nail clippers, emery boards, and some other junk. (Note to self: Clean up the drawer and make it your special beauty drawer). Anyway - I was light on the makeup. My sister visited and the first thing she said to me was - "You are glowing. You look so pretty." I told her about my new beauty products and the exciting adventure I have ahead of me trying to figure out my beauty routine. She said whatever I used is working. So far - well done Botanic Organic.
I emailed Nancy at Botanic Organic and shared with her the compliment I already got - just a couple hours after applying the Cleansing Spray and Facial Oil. She was so pleased. She said that was one of her favorite things about her job - hearing the happy stories about her products. She said it was probably the zinc in the Raspberry moisturizer. Whatever it is, it's working.
Later in the day, when I was ready to take my shower and take off my makeup, I decided to pull out another product. The first two were doing so well, I felt ready to try another one. I tried:
Tangerine & Lemon Facial Cleansing Oil
When I got out of the shower, I expected to see the "raccoon look" that I usually have even when I wash my face. But I used this cleansing oil and when I looked in the mirror - I was not only fresh as a daisy - my eye makeup - gone! I couldn't believe it. Wow! Okay - this product won me over too. Yipeee!
Well, before I went to bed, I decided - oh what the hell. I need to try another. I'm really getting into this, so I tried....
Calendula Blossom & Rose Night Cream.
It's lovely too. So far this journey is fun!
I woke up this morning and I did my podcast. Topic: Small Changes. Here it is:
Small changes are fabulous.
I didn't take a selfie this morning. I haven't done my beauty routine yet. I hope to take one after I'm a little fixed up. If it's a good one, I'll post it tomorrow. But today, I decided to share a quote.
A toast - to making small changes. And make sure you give yourself some credit for ANY change you make that makes you feel better, love yourself more - and the cool thing - people WILL notice.
