I have had a guilty pleasure of trying as many facial products possible since I found out about the amazingness that is Ulta. If you are unfamiliar with Ulta, be warned, it will change your life. Think the Sam’s Club or Costco of beauty products. They have everything!! I was hooked. Around the same time this happened, my grandmother decided she wanted to start selling Rodan and Fields (the makers of Proactive). She had a show at her home and they brought in the dreaded black light. It’s horrible. I went into the bathroom with the lights off and flipped on the black light. Dear Lord! Is that Bloody Mary staring back at me? No, sadly it was my 20-something year old face with spots. I had age spots. My life changed.
I am vain. I want to be beautiful. I can’t look old. I’ll never be old. So I changed my habits. I did not buy her products that day as I had absolutely no money to buy anything, let alone a $30 itsy bitsy tube of lotion. So I explored. And explored. It has been a long hard journey but I have finally found products I love and can stand by. The best part, is they are affordable. I mean really affordable. I am living on a non-profit salary with little help from my husband’s enlisted salary. What I have done for y’all is list the products I am obsessed with, their prices, and where to find them. I hope this helps you on your quest for immortality and never-aging beauty!
