From online to in-store, Soft Surroundings is a company which embraces all women over 50 in their selections for fashion, beauty, and gift giving. While many brands are targeting to much younger audiences, Soft Surroundings loves the women fifty and above. If you have not visited a Soft Surroundings store, and you live near one, you simply must experience it.
I spent last Friday evening with the wonderful sales associates in the Soft Surroundings at The Shops of La Cantera and we had so much fun learning and sampling new beauty products, current fabulous fashions and looking over the well curated gift boxes available online and in store now. Here I am wearing some of the new products which are made for our skin…like it not, which is aging. These products help us to look our youthful best. All you need to do is call the store near you, and make an appointment with the beauty specialist. Then you have a quite, personal time in their lovely beauty department which is set back from all of the other shoppers so you get very personal attention. In San Antonio, make an appointment with Denise Ramos…you will love the time you spend with her. Some of the products I liked the most were…..
This new Liquid Foundation is perfect for us from Jane Iredale, an all natural beauty brand even recommended by doctors. It is a three in one product (love this, so much easier) and takes care of primer, concealer, and foundation all in one. This is a skincare infused makeup line with us in mind. It is very light…which was what I was looking for. I learned something new about application. To put foundation on with a brush and to brush it with down strokes all over….I am always brushing up. The brushing up motion makes it settle into the wrinkles more and brushing down gives a smoother finish….wish I had heard this one earlier! I was so impressed with this product I am going to switch to it from the Bobbi Brown serum foundation I have been using for a long time. I feel like it is healthier, prettier and more affordable.
Speaking of wrinkles, the beauty specialist introduced me to this new Strivectin product which is an instant wrinkle blurring (softening) primer. So if you like primer, put this on the wish list. I have always been impressed with Strivectin products. And with the product line from Veneffect.
I have used the lip treatment before and it is like rubbing butter on your lips. It softens and protects us from the feathering that begins to occur over 50. Just helps us plump out the thinning lip even more.
Now, in a future post I will bring you some more beauty tips from Soft Surroundings to help us get ready for the holiday social events. I have these products in today’s slide show. But, let’s go forward with gift ideas.
I have gifted Soft Surroundings to others for years and it always blesses those you give to. You can trust that the products are first rate. The buyers look the world over to find the best for women…especially women over 50. As I was at the store last Friday, I can assure you that women in their 50s, 60s, 70s were shopping and buying there. It was like a girl party for our friends! They have pulled together several types of gift boxes which are fun and luxurious.
I want to give a personal recommendation to the Faux Fur Throws. I have loved mine for years and it is just an incredible gift to give…especially to those in colder climates. I highly recommend.
With my makeup looking so pretty, I just had to try on some of the fabulous fashions Soft Surroundings has out at this time. They are stunning and if you want to make a statement, there are plenty in store and online to select from.
I have a full slide show for you below and, as I said, will share more ideas later….but go by a location if you are able to. They are beautiful and the associates will treat you like family. Dressings rooms, bathrooms, and the store are all gorgeous with French Country flair. I want to thank the ladies at The Shops of La Cantera! Denise, you were great in beauty! We had so much fun.
