Beauty is Only Skin Deep

OK, so I am one of the lucky ones.  I have really great skin for my age.  Most of the responsibility of that is due to parents both looks decades younger than their actual ages.  This past summer I went to Canada's Wonderland, a local theme park, and my youngest daughter wanted to win a stuffed animal that was in one of those "Guess Your Age" kiosks.  I figured, "why not?"  I know I look young for my age, but how harsh was this teenager going to be?  He asked me a few questions and then he said he would write down his guess and show it to my daughter.  When my daughter giggled, I knew we had won.  He asked how old I was, so I told him 46.  His jaw actually dropped.  With his mouth still open he turned his clipboard around and I saw a big old 32.  Woot woot for the old gal!!

So how does she do it? you may ask.

Up until recently I just washed every day with Dove soap.  But this winter has been particularly harsh and so I have actually had to start moisturizing.  I have had a difficult time finding just the right moisturizer.  I have really sensitive skin and I am allergic to chamomile (I have hayfever), so I have to be careful with what I put on my skin.  I have about 20 jars and bottles of various creams that are in my bathroom vanity that I have tried.  Either they are too heavy and cause me to break out, they have overpowering smells, or they give me hives.  I guess that is why I stuck with Dove.

Recently I was sent a sample face masque from Montagne Jeunesse Clay Spa in my Influenster Maple Vox Box for me to try.  I was prepared not to like it or have some sort of allergy reaction.  What I wasn't prepared for was how amazing the Clay Infused Fabric Masque was.  I have done clay masks before, but they were all so terribly drying.  With the old clay masks it made my skin feel like a much that I was worried that my face would crack.

This was absolutely not the case with the Montagne Jeunesse Masque.  I made a short video of when I used the Masque for the first time.  I walk you through the steps of using the Masque and then at the end I give my honest reaction to the results.  Yes, it looks scary, but it is well worth it.
