Skin Care / Re: Ladies please help me choose good anti-aging products

I definitely will, so far so good. She is really determined this time. Didn't miss a day yet:) She uses the day serum after morning routine and night serum and corrector before going to bed. Btw ladies if somebody got interested in the product. The official site does not provide delivery to US for some reason, but there are certified retailers here, where I actually purchased the products.

Home and Garden / Re: Front Yard - Almost Done

Your front yard is very attractive! I can't begin to fathom how you and your husband were able to first conceptualize it and then implement it. The wavy lines are so smooth! I can't wait to learn what you decide to do with your back yard!

Our yard is almost exactly like it was when we bought the house except that there are a few more weeds that we just can't seem to stay ahead of. We have rock against the house all the way around so that we don't need gutters. A variety of perennials, mostly hosta and lilies, are planted in those rock gardens. I'm not great at getting out and weeding on a regular basis so I'm happy to live with rocks and perennials and grass.

Milla - I would love to see pictures of yours, too.

Nadia28, I hope you will let us know how the products work for your mother. It's always good to learn about new (to me) products if they work as advertised.

I think $19 seems very reasonable for what you received. I envy you having nieces who will really want the items that don't thrill you. It's a great way to remain in contact and close to them while experiencing new products at a fraction of their original cost. Also, if anticipating your box staves off unnecessary buying that's another big win. I'm happy for you!

That is a  lovely design and it shows your creativity. I would love to replace the paving at the front of our house but let's say DH is not in the same frame of mind. Still we have changed our porch and windows and the flowers look nice (I will post a photo when I have the time to resize one!). Like you, I need to sort out the back garden as I have a border that is virtually empty; unlike you I am short of ideas and expertise!

You have to start using Pure Shea Butter, it contains powerful ingredient with anti-aging benefits and revitalizes, renews and repairs the skin. And most important all the products are 100% natural. Also for Oily, Dry and Acne prone skin, you must check out other products. Visit here URL REMOVED BY MODERATOR

Home and Garden / Front Yard - Almost Done
« Last post by SusieQ on June 21, 2017, 08:49:35 PM »
It's been so warm that we laid down the three big rocks - upper left - and the little rocks covering most of the yard called "Ginger" and once it cools down a bit, I will do the some final design. Nothing fancy but something I want to add. And, also cover the black borders that you can see. The final strip is one that see a little bit of upper left next to the green strip and that will be a quick one.  I want to place two pots there and grow perennials.

It's been exhausting but DH did lots of the hard work. Bless him.  I haven't decided on what I want on the back but ideas are swirling in my head.  :lol:

Makeup / June BoxyCharm

I received the box and included a picture.  I will probably wait until I get the July to meet with my nieces.  There may be a fight for products if I show them the June box.   I will probably keep the lipstick and the masks. They're into skincare, yet.

I paid $19 for the box and total cost of the products is $113.00.  Also, it has stopped me from buying any makeup since I know this box was coming.

RealHer Play Book shadow pallete is ok
Ofra liquid lipstick is really nice so I'll probably keep that one
Artist Couture is a highlight and they may fight over that one.  :lol:
There is a face brush that one of my nieces may like
Facial Mask - there's three included but I'll probably keep that one.

Overall,, I like the products in the June box and know that they will all have a home soon. I'm glad that I finally pulled the trigger on this one.

Hi ladies, happy to announce you that I finally made a decision on choosing the anti-aging products line for my mom. I did go with my friend's advise because she insisted that it was  a great product, I am talking about MF3. What I found out was that this company was founded in 1980s in Switzerland and they offer anti-aging dietary supplements and skincare products that are based on botanical and placental extracts. It is a brand that supposedly works well for both men and women over 40. I ordered both night and day serums and also corrector (for reducing dark spots). This is the information that is given on the website.

"Melasma DNA Corrector is a high-precision, roll-on-concentrate applicator for visible dark spot reduction. This highly concentrated corrector provides a unique, deep-down action on the two origins of dark spots and aging pigments: melanin synthesis and lipofuscin formation.
Designed as the ultimate regulator of hyper-pigmentation, the spot-reducing ingredients – Liquorice extract, Di-potassium Glycyrrhizate, Stable Vitamin C and Hexylresorcinol – in this extraordinary Melasma DNA Corrector actively decreases melanin synthesis, whereas a generous supply of micro-encapsulated Olive extract potently blocks the formation of lipofuscin (aging pigments), a correctable defect of visible cellular waste deposits caused by constant exposure to the sun and premature aging."

Well, I don't want to say anything more. We received all three products yesterday and my mom tried the night serum the same day. She said the texture is really nice, she didn't have any stickiness after. I will let you all know about the results when I see them:) My mom is really excited and she is sure it is going to work because these products are expensive. And to my mom's opinion, everything that costs a lot, should work. We will see about that. Other than that thank you all for advices and hope I will have good news for all that are interested and were looking for anti-aging products.

Skin Care / Re: DIY Skincare – my journey

Welcome, Amelia and good luck. I have lived with someone who suffers from anxiety and, although I am not an expert, I believe that exercising and socialising helps (if/when you are physically able to do it). Medication helps, but lots of people don't like being on tablets for long periods of time; you definitely need to be monitored by a doctor while you are taking anti-depressants. The response varies from an individual to another. As for skin care, oils are excellent, whether you use them to cleanse or to moisturise. I certainly find them very relaxing and enjoyable to use.
