When Your Country is on a Pandemic Alert

It cracks me up that because we're on pandemic alert due to H1N1 previously known as SWINE, people are beginning to take cautionary actions - aka wash hands, cover mouths when we cough, etc. So people were not washing their hands before??? Plus, it's a courtesy to cover your mouth when you have a coughing fit. Let's not pass our germs along. Despite this life-threatening-but-under-controlled-virus, Mr.W and I still had our share of... mammals this month.

I realized I am a sucker, like many others, when it comes to freebies.

I stopped by Sephora because I found out that with a $30 purchase during the week of Mother's Day you receive a free bottle of firming body emulsion. It's a good size, about 118ml which I think is around the size of the retailed bottle. But, I really don't need to firm anything, other than my bum, so what am I doing with face/body lotion that firms wrinkles??? So now I am $30 poorer and completely confused whether or not to gift this or give it to my mother (without hinting at the fact that she's wrinkly and old....). The emulsion I received was Philosophy's Amazing Grace. As per site/bottle:

Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion
Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion is a toning body moisturizer that helps to purify, moisturize, and revitalize dry, aged, or wrinkled skin with a unique blend of antioxidants and vitamins E and C. Chock full of luscious moisturizing properties including shea butter, macadamia nut, and olive oils.

  • conditions and helps stabalize moisure level of dry skin
  • firming agents help to revitalize aged and wrinkled skin
  • contains olive oil to help smooth and moisturize
  • antioxidant enriched with vitamins c

I've been using my MUFE HD primer though, but lately I've been put off by the smell.... Currently I am OCD with skin care, and looking more human than I have been for the past month. Perhaps it's because I've been lacking sleep and the fact that summer is tinkling along I want to avoid going dark at all measures. Whereas some girls enjoy getting tans, I don't want to have sun spots and saggy skin when I am 35. So if you're still debating on what is an appropriate birthday gift (since yours truely is only 25 days away), skin care products are excellent choices!
