Mariage Freres Jasmine Mandarin tea! I opened it up, expecting the usual paper sachets and what did I see?
Oh my, cuteness overload. If ever tea could be described as cute, wee or pretty then the above sight fits all those descriptives. They look like a little pile of plump dumplings all ready for their hot water bath. And their delicate scent is beyond divine.
I have been really missing my Ole Henricksen Sheer Transformation Moisturizer this week. I don't know about you but those few moments every day that I allocate to skincare are moments that I really look forward to. I can slow down, turn off my mind and just relax. And yes, I know that marketing hype and packaging is all just smoke and mirrors but I am a weak human. By chance, I found out that I had accumulated enough points with Sephora to get the Ole Henricksen 3 Little Wonders travel or introductory set. The set consists of 7 days worth of Truth Serum, Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer, Invigorating Transformation Gel and Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser. Admittedly, in the past, I have avoided products with high concentrations of acids as I found them overly drying. But, in my desire to get my hands on the moisturizer, I was willing to try out the cleanser and gel, both of which contain AHA's (glycolic and lactic acids). I do like the fact that the box clearly outlines the steps involved in the 7 day regimen, breaking it down into an am and pm routine. I am about half way through and my face hasn't fallen off my head yet. Do you have a skincare regimen? Or, like me, have you just woken up to the fact that youth is no longer your ally and you had better take action right sharpish?
