How was your weekend? Are you still in denial that a new week has begun?? Me too, you are not alone! LOL
I am pushing myself through this week because I’m going on vacation on Saturday and it’s always so hard to stay focused on work when I’m so looking forward to leaving! But I digress….my focus this blog post is about makeup removal!
I’ve wrote before that I have rosacea. I developed this in 2006, I think due to stress but some of it might have been my physical health problems surfacing. Since that time I’ve used Estee Lauder Verite Light Lotion Cleanser as my makeup remover star. I went to Dillards Saturday to buy some more, almost out (about a teaspoon left in the bottle) and the sales lady informed me it is no longer being produced. (I knew this was coming, for the last year or so, it’s harder and harder to find-Dillards has been the only store in stock, so I wasn’t completely surprised) I was however a little stunned because I’m all encompassed on my vacation that getting this news….well I guess I didn’t know what to say…I just stood there and couldn’t think of a response. Finally (seriously it must have been a minute) I asked what product she might recommend because of my rosacea and not knowing another gentle product (I’ve tried several others in the last few months anticipating this problem and the ones I tried exacerbated my skin condition ). She gave me a couple of samples to try and one I just love and thought I would share with you all.
It’s also Estee Lauder, Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm -link below (I know that’s a mouthful) but it reminds me of coconut oil, it’s very soothing, cleanses my skin thoroughly, and does not irritate my delicate rosacea facial condition. That is a big deal, I’ve used it a few days and it’s awesome! I’m so glad I found one that works, I was super worried and super annoyed at Estee Lauder for discontinuing one of my favorite items and now am relieved that I’ve found something else to rely on for another 14 years.
I took a couple of close up pictures (one without makeup) so you can see my skin- it is covered with Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation that covers and protects my face (with rosacea, that is vital) but you can see my skin does not look very inflamed. I think the cleansing balm is helping with this, or I’m super skilled at applying makeup. LOL
Maybe in 14 years my rosacea will be a thing of the past? I can only hope 🙂
