    Enjoyed the podcast. I would love to see the show notes on your blog. That new L’Oreal concealer sound worth trying out.

    You have a good mix of guests. Your mom was one of my favorites.

    I was interested to see that neither my local Ulta, Bed Bath and Beyonce (yes, I call it that), nor CVS carried the ANY of the Loreal Age Perfect line. Do they not know who is buying this shit? I ended up ordering that magic Loreal concealer from the Ulta website. There are also a what looks like a nice blush and nonfeathering lipstick in that line so those also fell into my online shopping cart. Looking forward to a fun package in the mail!

    I wish I had listened to this podcast BEFORE I bought two tubes of Lancome mascara (one for length, one for volume). Next time it’s No More Panda Eyes.

    Such a fun, fascinating episode! Thank you! There’s a vitamin C product that I absolutely love that is much cheaper than SkinCeuticals–it is the BeautyStat Universal C Skin Refiner, with a coupon it can be around $60, regular price I think is $80. Still a lot, but wait til I tell you the results I saw. I tried it in June when I decided to order my next beauty treat from a Black-owned business. BeautyStat was on one of the lists circulating. Normally, I go every other year to MassGeneral to get Fraxel laser to get rid of age spots on my face. I started at age 44. I have really light skin, freckles, and blue eyes. These age spots that look like oh, I don’t know, Idaho and Ohio, started appearing on my face (!!!). Concealer wasn’t cutting it. So, I pulled the trigger and spent $1800 on Fraxel & IPL. It hurt like crazy (some people have less pain), and I had a few down days, but the results were a miracle. Goodbye random states on my face. Well, Covid put the brakes on this year’s scheduled treatment. But you know what? The BeautyStat cream has drastically faded the new age spots that had begun appearing. It’s shocking. I’ve never had a cream actually do anything miraculous (Retinol does nothing for me, LeMer– Le Meh). But this is amazing! It took about 3 weeks and then I was like “hey, where’d that spot go?” And I ordered another container. Now, I’ll still do Fraxel probably…the re-surfacing is too good. But I also might chicken out b/c $$$ and it hurts. Anyhow, wanted to flag a product I’m loving in case there are other vitamin C seekers out there.

      I love Klur’s vitamin C—symmetry fluid. The line is developed & owned by a black woman. It’s $70, super moisturizing and not irritating.

    Ladies, I’m interviewing to be a contributor to a well-known blogger and YouTuber and just wrote a blog as part of my interview. I actually researched and wrote about snail mucus…and man, I’m sold on it. (And something called Bakuchiol which is supposed to be just as effective as RetinA.

    Wish me luck on my interview!

    Until this podcast I had no idea about the L’Oreal takeoffs of Kiehls products! I’ve been using Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream for over a decade and the last two jars I’ve purchased had a strange fragrance and stung my skin when I applied it to my face. Weird! Can’t determine whether they changed the recipe or whether I got a “bad” batch. (It did seem like it was rancid. :yikes:)

    So I need a replacement for my nighttime moisturizer. And I don’t like this kind of change. I thought I’d check out the Olay creme that Jill and Carlene mentioned but unlike Tally I don’t enjoy fragrances–which is why the Kiehl’s was so good for so long. (Arg! Change!) Any GOACA suggestions?

    Love this post topic…it always gives me some great ideas. Listening to your podcast and reading your blog def.helps me get through these LONG months. Other things getting me through….cocktail hour most nights (signals end of the day, thankful we can still sit out on the deck…not for long tho in the Midwest), finding interesting zoom sessions from various libraries on diff. topics, attended a free zoom session from Anthropologie on fall fashion/styling tips…I know…I go nowhere to wear any of it….but I like fashion so it was fun to watch.
