I’ve never been one for makeup and fancy facial products. I mostly use drugstore brands with an occasional Clinique product – if I made eye contact with the saleswoman and guiltily responded to her beckoning finger– or a Mary Kay something – if a co-worker’s daughter was throwing a party and I couldn’t think of an excuse not to go. Anyway, I was in the drugstore today looking for a moisturizing lotion for my face. You know, just a simple, but decent drugstore moisturizer with a bit more ‘oomph’ for, shall we say, a face with ‘character.’
Off I went for what I thought was going to be a quick errand. Into Rite Aid I marched and into the face-stuff aisle. Suddenly I was assaulted with a daunting array of products with names like Complete All Day Moisturizer, Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid (fluid??), Age Defying Protective Renewal Lotion, Total Effects Anti-Aging Moisturizer and I had not a clue what they were for nor what I should pick!
Once upon a time, the choices were simple. Now I guess cosmetic companies are capitalizing on us aging boomers, and I can’t blame them, really. I mean, making money is what it’s all about in our recovering(?) economy. And the more complicated the products, the more job security for those who have to explain what’s what, right?
I bought my ‘old’ moisturizer only now I give myself double the dose.
A simple life is one of bliss.

These are genuinely fantastic ideas in about blogging.
You have touched some fastidious things here.
Any way keep up wrinting.
Thank you so much for your kind words.
