Hydration in a Jar

Getting older sucks, you notice the imperfections in your skin a lot more. Dark spots, dry skin, fine lines, pores. EWW to it all. I thought it would never happen to me but it’s happening. I am becoming that person I said I’d never be….OLD. At least OLDER. I’ll give myself a little credit. I can’t stop it, but I’m trying my hardest to slow it down. And I’m not going down without a fight.

I went to the dermatologist over the summer for my yearly check up, and I happened to ask her about this hyaluronic acid we’ve been hearing about so much these days? Suddenly it’s a new trend. The fountain of youth? Not exactly. But she did recommend Neutrogena’s Hydroboost. I’ve been using it since June and I’m in love with it! It’s superb and works wonders. My skin feels radiant once I put it on and it does what it says it will do, HYDRATE! I’ve definitely noticed a difference in skin tone and texture. I ran out the other day and I was lost without it. I’ve tried higher end ones such as Philosphy and Confidence in a Cream, which are also great, but this Hydroboost is way cheaper and feels lighter on my skin. And it works!

Neutrogena is having a 20% off sitewide sale right now. Click on my referral link and you will get $10 off your first purcahse of $40 or more. My little friend Hydroboost is on sale now for $17.19 plus free shipping. Usuially $22 in stores.


Fresh scent, smells great, feels light on my skin, reasonably priced and it works better than most high end moisturizers.

Commercials are great. Good bless these marketing companies and the celebrities that endorse the products. I fell for Eva Longoria’s “reading of reviews” commercial for Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I’ve been using it in junction with the Hydroboost and let me tell you, it has not reduced the look of a single line. Maybe it works for others, but it did not for me. I’d love to know if anyone else has used this with positive results? Eva, I love you, but I know Revitalift is not the secret to your beauty.

Not even close in the running.

PS. Drink lots and lots of water!

    My mom used to say that a person needed to be brave to get old. Donโ€™t waste your time trying to fight the inevitable. Just need to learn to accept it with grace. It happens to everyone. Iโ€™ve never met anyone who has figured out how to stop or reverse the process.

    If you accept it gracefully and work to keep yourself as healthy as possible, things will work out.
