Anti-Aging Secrets…of Mine…Part 2!

Great comments yesterday, ladies!  We can all learn from each other!  I have to say that the best anti-aging secret I try to practice every day is JOY and LAUGHTER!  So, I started this day with LAUGHTER to see I was selected by 12 MOST as one of the 12 MOST READABLE BLOGS FOR WOMEN!!  What a wonderful honor!  I am anxious now to check out the other eleven! 

When we stopped yesterday, I had just cleaned my face!  I want you to know that I have read great reviews of the CLARISONIC system and only went with OLAY for affordability.  But the results have been nothing but positive on our end.
Once a week, I do a deep cleanse with the OLAY REGENERIST MICRODERMABRASION & PEEL SYSTEM kit.  My husband also likes this one.  It is a more intensive home kit and will feel a little bit of burning.  But, the results are immediate.  I always do this at night, because your face will be slightly red and need overnight to rest.
Then I use ROC products for my facial creams and serums:

Seriously...feeling great now at 59!!
NOW FOR THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, THE MOST INCREDIBLE EYE TIGHTENER I HAVE USED SO FAR!!  My daughter was the one who introduced me to PETER THOMAS ROTH products.  They are excellent and a slightly more than ROC products.   The INSTANT EYE TIGHTNER is the one product worth the cost to me.  This little miracle cream makes your eyes look amazing all day….instantly puffiness, dark circles, and wrinkles just disappear.  Now, you put it on in the morning, let it sit for just a few minutes, and then gently wipe away any residue left behind.  But, it will shave off all fatigue and aging in literally just a few minutes. It can also be mixed with your favorite eye cream.  I haven’t done this yet, but I plan to mix it with my ROC eye cream and see what happens.   Ways to bring the price down, are by using coupons at ULTA or sales at my newest sponsor, SKIN CARE RX.
They did not ask or pay for a review post, but I will tell you that their website is the easiest to order from I have experienced so far.  It was pain free and the products shipped and arrived in a very timely fashion. I was pleased.  Sign up for their email specials and save money there.

Tomorrow, we will discuss makeup….always a work in progress!  Happy Friday Everyone!



  1. Pam, your skin really does look great! You look refreshed and have a nice glow. Glad you've found some great products that are working for you!

  2. You look great in those colors! OK lady, now I have to get that eye cream!! Sounds dreamy!

  3. You are one of the best blogs....the only one I read that is specifically meant to help me "at my age"....LOL I think laughter is the best thing for everyone....my husband and I fell in love with each other because we could laugh so easily together....thank you for your blog again~

  4. Hi Pam!

    Funny that your husband was maybe there at the same time as us!
    I was reading your beauty regimen and microdermabrasion is not for evryone, ii triedit once and it burned my skin and i used the one for sensitive skin.
    I use vichy's lifactiv serum 10 , best thing i used in years! Your skin glows!
    Plus i use Laroche Posay ' toleriane riche
    I was ask by skin rx as well but not worth it for us Cdn we have to pay customs fees!
    You are doing something right with your skin you look radiant!


  5. Congratulations Pam!! what a deserved honor!!
    You've given me more items to try out!!
    The question is how would it work with someone with REALLY oily skin?? I find I have to be careful or my face looks like a BP oil spill!!

  6. I must try the Olay version of the Clarasonic - thanks for the review!

  7. I am definitely going to check out the peter thomas roth eye cream. My mom is always searching for something, she's tried just about everything and is never pleased with the results. Congratulations on the recognition Pam, you deserve it.

  8. I will try out the Peter Thomas Roth eye creme too as I have yet to find one to get rid of puffiness under the eyes!

    I am afraid to use products with the high concentrations of glycolic acid or anything like that as it burns my skin and leaves me puffy. In fact, I was wondering how the Roc products are or the Olay products. Some skin care regimens are too creamy and end up making me feel like an oil slick!

  9. Congratulations on the honor!

  10. I've used a lot of the Olay regenerist but not the peel. It looks good! I'm going to have to check out that eye cream too. Thanks for sharing your tips.


Thanks so much for joining in our conversation today! I appreciate your time and love hearing from you!
