Beauty Spotlight “What’s in my…” – My Mom’s Turn

In honor of Mother’s Day in the US next weekend, I thought I would give you a peek into my lovely Momma’s bathroom cabinet. As you can see, there are many MANY brands that are available on QVC – my mom is the one that introduced me to my dirty little secret the shopping channel.

Some of her favorites, including some not purchased from the tv, are:

  • Dr. Denese SPF 30 Defense Day Cream
  • Philosphy “Amazing Grace” Spritz, but really anything in that scent
  • Elizabeth Arden “Red Door” – this has been her go to scent for I don’t know how many years now
  • RoC Skincare Deep Wrinkle Serum
  • Laura Geller Tinted Under Make-Up Primer, and she also loves the Balance N Brighten, too (*not shown)
  • Lierac Gentle Cleansing Water No-Rinse Formula for Face and Eyes (*no longer available, but now she keeps sneaking peeks at my new “Velvet Cleanser”)
  • Philosphy “The Oxygen Peel”
  • Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum (*pretty sure this was my bottle that Mom swiped after she finished hers)
  • I would like to point out the DIY pencil/brush holder I made for my mom with beads and a rectangle vase from Hobby Lobby. My mom has neuropathy in her hands, so it is very difficult for her to pick small things up off of flat surfaces. This holder makes it so much easier for her to grab her brushes and her eye products, as she is NOT giving any of those up. Especially these:

  • RevitaBrow – (*remember when I told you about my mom and RevitaBrow?)
  • Laura Geller Brow Marker
  • Smashbox Brow Tech To Go
  • Mally Beauty Automatic Eyeliner in “Black Cherry” (*of COURSE there is Mally in there, and I was *wondering* where that color went…)
  • So, I don’t think it is too hard to figure out where I get my love of beauty products (and QVC), do you? Tell me – do you get your love of beauty from your Momma, or has she picked up a few tricks from you?

      Definitely got my love of all things beauty/makeup from my mom. Her makeup drawer was a constant source of fascination to me as a teenager. Now we’re both hooked on Paula’s Choice RESIST skincare line (awesome stuff) and I buy her lipsticks and eyebrow pencils. At 83 she looks at least ten years younger, one of the few benefits of oily skin, which I also inherited.

        You’d think with the name I would have already tried “Paula’s Choice”, but I haven’t. With results like your Momma, I need to give in!
