I have always been a sucker for skin care. From ointments touting perfect skin to lotions which promise to miraculously erase the wrinkles of time, I have them all. Not surprisingly, most do not work and have taken up residence in my large “drawer of disappointment” under my vanity.
My interest in skin care and make up wafts and wanes throughout the year but always crests in mid to late February. I suspect that the dreary cold weather, coupled with the post-holiday depression combine to make me feel inadequate and ugly. I’ve noticed that make-up advertisements and sales seem to inundate us this time of year, so I must not be the only woman with this seasonal reaction.
Despite spending thousands of dollars over the years on hundreds of little tubes and bottles, I have finally settled on two products which I use on a consistent basis. In fact, this is the first year that I haven’t added a few little bottles to the “been there, tried that” abyss of failure. This year, instead of scouring the ads for the next best thing, I happily trudged along with my existing skin care routine.
I don’t have the time to mess around with multiple products. I have no interest in investing 30 minutes in a skin care routine. I like to keep things simple, and with L’Oreal Youth Code Day Lotion, this is possible. I love the slight scent, which I find uplifting but not overpowering. The lotion goes on smoothly, and probably more importantly, it absorbs quickly. After a few days I noticed that my skin was smoother and had an even tone. Although I don’t know if it erased any of my emerging fine lines, I do know that I feel prettier and younger since using the product.
After the day lotion is absorbed, I use the Youth Code BB Cream as my foundation. This tinted cream goes on quickly and is easy to apply. With this BB Cream, those pesky foundation lines are gone and my skin tone simply looks naturally flawless. The coverage stays put throughout the day, allowing me to avoid transferring my foundation on my shirt collar, napkins, my cell phone and any other item which touches my face throughout the day.
I love my Youth Code Day Lotion and BB Cream, and I don’t see myself switching products anytime soon. These products suit my needs and my lifestyle. (My husband also appreciates the fact that I am not spending oodles of money searching for the next best thing!) The Youth Code products have Unlimited my skin care routine, allowing me to feel pretty with a minimal time investment.
