I’ve been using a Smashbox concealer and the wrinkles under my eyes have never been more visible. I need something better but have trouble color matching because I’ve got pinky pink skin and most concealers are more yellow toned. Still have it easier than PoC.December 19, 2016 at 4:51 pm #664934
Also, on this topic- best moisturizing lip balms?
My skin is super dry and my lips even moreseo. I usually put my under eye cream on my lips before bed. I’ve tried coconut oil. Usually I have this one lip balm that works, but right now, nothing is working and my lips are peeling and flaking off. I exfoliate them with a wet toothbrush 1-2 times a week.
I really dislike any type of lip balm that causes my lips to freak out if I stop using it (like Carmex).December 19, 2016 at 4:56 pm #664936
LisforLeslie- is there a Sephora near you? Go and ask for a consultant to help you and then take 2-3 samples home with you and try them out for a few days.
Becca brand has some pink-undertoned concealers (butterscotch and brulee)
Nars creamy concealer- vanilla, chestnut or brulee
(assuming you are white/fairer skinned based on your pink undertones).December 19, 2016 at 5:10 pm #664940
Hey Snoopy.. try Dr Lipp nipple balm for lips.December 19, 2016 at 5:13 pm #664942
Or Aquaphor or Vaseline…December 19, 2016 at 5:15 pm #664943
I love the buet’s bees coconut oil lip balm. I use the mango and cherry ones, too. I hear really great things about the nuxe lip balm, too.December 20, 2016 at 8:21 am #664995
On those long, cold winter days there will lots of times you can’t go outside. The snow will be too deep or the windchill is too low so you need physical things to do inside that are house friendly.
Building a fort/house out of blankets and sheets will keep kids busy. Three kids might end up building three houses and visiting back and forth between them.
Another thing you can do is build with cardboard bricks like these.
They are light weight but large enough to make the kids move to build with them.
If they are toddlers this basketball is good.
Try to have play dates with other kids. That will keep them busy for hours.
Make playdough. They can sit for hours rolling it out and cutting out shapes.
Get a large box from an appliance store and make it into a house/fort. They can use markers to decorate the inside and the outside. Or make it into a tunnel.
A pop up tent is great.
My daughter had one of these and would play with it for days before getting tired of it and then we’d put it away. Save it for a specific type of day, like windchill below a certain level or snowfall over a foot. Something that would make them stir crazy because you can’t get out.
Another thing is to go to a fast food playground like McDonald’s or Burger King. They can run and climb for hours so you get to wear them out for the price of a burger. We never bought the Happy Meal. We’d get a burger and milk and some ice cream.December 20, 2016 at 9:58 am #665014
I love Blistex DCT for putting on my lips at night, during this time of year.December 20, 2016 at 10:10 am #665021
I think I will be making a drug store run today. Despite coconut oil+ lip balm a bed today, I woke up with a cracked lip. I pretty much moved my tiny humidifier at work to right under my face.December 20, 2016 at 11:48 am #665055
I’ve been obsessed with Pixi products lately. I second the recommendation for the Glow Tonic. It’s seriously amazing. Because I liked it so much, I also went and got the rose oil, the overnight serum, and the Glow Mist. My skin has never looked better.December 20, 2016 at 11:54 am #665056
Snoopy – been there, done that. I’m just going to have to use my plastic surgery fund sooner than expected.December 20, 2016 at 11:59 am #665061
@LisforLeslie….do you follow Kate’s routine advice for anti aging? Maybe more plumping primers? I’m young, but genentically have dark circles and will have forehead + eye wrinkles. I tried the Ren Flash Hydroboost Instant Plumping Emulsion (it goes on between your serum and moisturizer) and found it helped show less wrinkles).
